I see it as too hard to pull off myself. The other player has to let you charge up or walk up to while you are about to obtain a charge. But jax does now have a "practical" kill confirm.


The idea is to get the drop on the enemy from above. Charge it on your way down just as a spammer would, then show them your new trick.

There is no way other than luck this will work in any match. They need to make his mass inverter go into his level 1 like before he should have one reliable confirm.

Charging it in the air then landing and straight away doing it seems practical to me.

Yep.... But wont most players try to run, dodge, or attack you? Postioning appears to be key with this lvl 1, if you are even slightly out of position, it seems like it would fail. I suppose I'd have to test it to be sure though. Theres no doubt it will work intially but after people learn of the KC, will it keep working? I doubt it.

In some further tests, I have found that it DOES work from the air. You just have to be very close to the ground before releasing the charged blast. (Otherwise it sends them flying too far)
It's also important to note that you can turn while holding the charge in the air, which is great if you need to reorient yourself because your enemy did.

Perhaps it is, I'll try it for myself. I found that, while not exactly a kill confirm; his down O to level 1 usually catches people off guard.
