Ionian Boots of Lucidity
Infinity Edge if they're low on armor or Last Whisper if they're high on armor.
Zephyr if they have a lot of CC or Phantom Dancer if they don't.
Other items I occasionally buy:
Sword of the Divine if I'm getting to DPS on squishies a lot and they have low armor
Guardian Angel if I'm dying a lot.
This is definitely a fairly squishy Jayce but you become equal in damage output to most AD carries by lategame. In this build I stay in ranged stance most of the time, only going into melee stance in battles to finish off opponents or peel for an ally or myself. I'm pretty sure Jayce's W on a 3.6 sec CD is the strongest steroid in the game. I could be wrong but it sure feels like it.
Yep, Jayce's W is definitely the strongest steroid in the game, especially at that cd. This is doubly true if you get IE and enough crit where you'll be reliably critting with those 3 shots (or if you just use SotD) because Jayce's W will increase the crit damage by 30% and IE will also increase it by another 50%. You absolutely shred through your opponents no matter what they build.
No other steroid both increases your attack speed to the maximum output AND increases your AA damage like that.
We should play together sometime so we can see each other's Jayce at work ;D
(actually I just wanna play with a rioter
