....And a carry would be?
Often times I seem to be used as the aggressor or pusher while other champs defend their lanes and fight off champs (between levels 6-12 usually), I'll help, but for the most part people seem to want me committed to my lane. Is this due to Jax's ability to cut through towers and minions and solo champs like butter? Or is this due to Jax being a good pusher?
It's not usually till levels 10+ where my equipment gets good enough to stomp on champs with above average success.
Maybe that's exactly it and I figured it out for myself as I typed. Jax is item dependant, and tends to call attention, so when I stick to a lane I get the gold i need. But i cannot typically solo the lane due to having a weak early level skillset and enemy champs will gank me.
Judging based on these principles, you would think Jax would make a great champ for the middle lane, easy to snare enemy champs, or save my ass when being ganked. Mostly seemingly for the same reasons ashe does, although by level 6 Jax would able able to move on to another lane and solo it with success.
