Jax Mid-Scope Update Revealed for 2023

Shown off by Lead Champion Designer at Riot Games August Browning via a Twitter post, Jax's changes, although minor compared to other champion mid-scope updates, will focus on his Counter Strike, his E, and his ultimate, Grandmaster's Might.

The goal of these adjustments will be to have his ultimate spell more exciting and rewarding—possibly making the infamous AP Jax build viable once again. On top of that, Jax's ability icons, some of his VFX, and SFX will be updated as well.

Additionally, players could possibly look forward to a secret passive that the developer noted as a "fishing mini game."

Here are the numbers for Jax's mid-scope update.
