Jayce: From A One-Trick Jayce Diamond Player

Hello everyone, I am GG Thanks For LP. I started the game in late Season 5, and have been playing Jayce every game in ranked for about 2 years now. I have over 3,000 games on Jayce, and I have tested almost every build/rune page on this champ that there is. I have tried every mechanic there is to Jayce during laning phase, mid game and late game. I peaked Diamond 3 with Diamond 1 MMR when S7 finished, finishing with a 70% wr on Jayce. Now that the introduction is out of the way, I want to talk about a big problem with this game right now, which is damage. Its funny coming from a Jayce, the games best lane bully complaining about damage, but then again, it also ruins Jayce as the champion he is supposed to be. Jayce starts out with either Long Sword or Dorans blade and takes either Electrocute or Aery as his Keystone. During one of my games, I was laning against a Camille. Back in Season 7, this would be a rather easy matchup for Jayce. I took Aery, took Long Sword as well to get the extra damage, and went to lane. Camille started Dorans Shield, and had Arcane Comet/Precision. We get to lane, we both get to Level 2, so then we decide to trade. I throw my Accelerated Shockblast at her, which costs about 115 manaish, and Camille uses Tactical Sweep on me (W). My 2 abilities did less than 5% of her health as damage, while her 1 ability, Tactical Sweep, did 25% of my health as damage. If there is a way to upload videos so I can show proof to the nonbelievers, I will. That brings me to my argument. Why can someone who starts with Dorans Shield deal 25% of my health with 1 ability? While I, getting the 10 AD boost only does less that 5% of her health with an accelerated shock blast? Jayce is sitting very low on good champs to play. Most sites are actually ranking him very close near the bottom of lists. He just provides nothing for his team anymore it seems. You can win lane, but once you do that, you cant 1v1 hardly anyone but the adc and support (at times). Almost every top laner now can destroy Jayce. Gnar/Rumble/Fiora/Riven are pretty much the only ones that go even or Jayce can win against in lane, and when was the last time you even seen one of those 4 champs played in the top lane? Riven is fairly common, but can destroy Jayce easily at level 6 if shes not beind. As of now I am currently playing on smurf accounts, and finding it near impossible to even win in Silver games with Jayce. I have tried Aery, Electrocute, PTA, Conqueror, Comet, Dark Harvest, Predator, Grasp, AfterShock, Klepto, Glacial, and Fleet Footwork, I also used many different variations with each rune and NONE have I found to work as well on Jayce. Aery is decent, but its very useless mid/late game. Electrocute is good but everything else in the rune tree is not useful. Nothing worked in Precision for me. Grasp and Aftershock worked well in lane but made me feel useless in team fights. Klepto made me feel like I was doing the damage I needed to, but the rest of the rune page lacks things Jayce needs. Glacial worked well in lane and for roaming, but once again made me feel useless in team fights. I have also tried every build there is on Jayce that works well. Crit Jayce: {{item:3004}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3031}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3147}} {{item:3094}} OG Jayce: {{item:3071}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3147}} {{item:3033}} {{item:3026}} Defensive Jayce: {{item:3071}} {{item:3047}} {{item:3142}} {{item:3110}} {{item:3001}} {{item:3147}} Roam/Assassin Jayce: {{item:3142}} {{item:3117}} {{item:3147}} {{item:3814}} {{item:3134}} {{item:3036}} MR Jayce: {{item:3142}} {{item:3111}} {{item:3156}} {{item:3071}} {{item:3139}} {{item:3026}} And not one has proven to do good. In season 7, I used every one of these builds in situational times. Was the team squishy and im fed? Go Assassin Jayce. Was my team a late game team comp? Go Crit Jayce. Was it just a standard Gnar/Darius fight? Go OG Jayce. Was the enemy team getting a lot of kills? Go Defensive Jayce. Does the enemy team have a Brand, malz and veigar? Go MR Jayce. I have made it to Diamond on several accounts using these builds as well, but sadly this season, none work. My suggestion for fixing. Nerfs needed on Dorans Shield. Health and healing granted in the Resolve tree need lowering. If someone takes Resolve as primary, make them have health only instead of splitting it with damage/health. Buff Sudden Impact, and add a new rune to the Bounty hunter stack in Domination Tree that adds adaptable Lethality/Magic pen per kill. In Season 7, I would take 14 Lethality and 8 ad for my runes, and thats a huge part of the problem im having playing Jayce now. Nerf minion damage, I dont enjoy autoing an enemy then taking 14 damage per auto from enemy minion (this isnt too bad but just a suggestion). Buff Jayce's W back from 110% damage to 130% damage while also reverting his Shockblast back down 20 damage. Now these are just suggestions, that doesnt mean Id want them all, but itd at least fix the damage problem im having in the top lane. Instead of having unfair fights because the enemy bought Dorans Shield and can deal 25% of my health with it. TLDR; Jayce is lacking right now, rune pages are a bit sloppy and need tweaking/looked at. Resolve needs nerfed with health and healing given. No real rune page or build works on Jayce. Dorans Shield needs nerfing. Jayce can hardly win against most matchups now even though hes supposed to be the best lane bully in the game.
