Notes and Tactics


Levels 1-5 (AP BUILD)
Early on you want to establish lane dominance while keeping up a passive harassment plan.
You have either choice of using Jack in the Boxes for creep kills to assist in pushing/cc/cash.
Or you can plant some along the outer edges of your lane for harassment/retreat areas. Use deceit
for quick get aways or harassment BEHIND your target, you want to make sure you get your full damage worth.

As a side note, try to be very conservative with your mana.

Levels 6-10 (AP BUILD)
This is about the time you can dominate in ganks. You can stray from your lane and grab their or your team's golem buff. This will enable you to spam your spells without worrying too much about mana. As jester, you want to plan ahead in ganks. Either block their escape route or make sure you have one. This means a Jack in the Box in either the direction you want to escape or the one you force them to use.

Levels 11-18 (AP BUILD)
Same story here except you're more buff and now have Two-Shiv Poison. When in team fights,
Be sure to drop your jack in the box first. You can approach team fights in various ways, either you run in use your illusion and stealth out or you can nuke them from afar and stealth into any lows or stragglers.

_____________________________________

Levels 1-5 (DPS BUILD)

Harassment and mana conservation are key. Last hit creeps when possible but don't get yourself injured for them. Play aggressive with the point of staying defensive.

Levels 6-10 (DPS BUILD)
You can now roam around and gank, make sure to pick your targets and timing carefully. Choose any target that your laning team mates can assist you with. If theres a jungler you can hunt for him real quick if you choose to do so. When approaching a gank be sure to coordinate with your team mate and only pop out in stealth. Do not use too much mana in a gank unless you know you will kill them. Always best to play safe and conserve mana for your Deceive.

Levels 11-18 (DPS BUILD)
Again, same story as mid game, you should also now have Jack in the Box. These are key for controlling your team fights better, and delaying runners or blocking routes. Its also safe to use these for your escape routes should a gank go terribly wrong.
