Jing Wei as most of us know is a late game carry. She has had her ups and downs in the meta, but in a recent shift (Patch 9.5) Jing Wei has gotten even safer and her items have gotten even better (Save for some nerfs in 9.5's Bonus Balance).

As of right now your goal as Jing Wei is to play it safe for your early game, and considering she is probably the safest of any hunter, that part shouldn't be too difficult. Never feel bad for returning to base, abuse her passive and take full advantage of what she gains from it. Her early game banks on her backing often and continually pressuring wave as best she can. Jing Wei does not gave the best early game clear, pairing her with a more aggressive guardian, while not needed, can help with some of her early game frustrations.

Her early game boxing can be quite weak, to circumvent this using her knock up at opportune times is crucial. Her 1 can give her a clear and easy way to land bolt shots, and if time right you can also knock yourself up to receive a solid attack speed bonus which can really win you a early game fight if played correctly.

When you do get your crit online you will notice a shift in kit. You won't be using your knock up as much for damage, but more for either securing bolt shot or for a escape. Late game not many can stand up to the pure burst Jing Wei can offer in team fights, AOE crits are brutal and can really take any enemy off guard if they group.

All in all, your key to winning with Jing Wei is patience. She offers much in the way of safety and pure burst, its just picking your early game fights wisely, and sliding into that late game.

Hey Vulpine,

Have a few questions if you don't mind responding.
  • You're building 50% crit. Granted, she gets the 3 shots from her 2 w/ boosted crit chance, and 50% has been a common crit chance target recently. What is your opinion on switching Death's Toll ( Death's Temper) for Gilded Arrow ( Ornate Arrow)? What are your opinions on drawbacks about going this direction (at least as an option)? This would put her base crit chance late-game at 75%, with an activation of her 2 basically guaranteeing crits. I know DPS isn't everything, but I'm pretty sure Ornate gives better overall DPS late game.

  • In another changeup of your base build, just looking for your reasons for preferring to show Odysseus' Bow in that 6th slot instead of something like Wind Demon. I've never liked the concept of getting a 0 power item in a crit build since the crit multiplier is based on power. I know of course this can still work just fine, but I'm feeling WD is a better standard option to show in the base build, for the added crit chance, power, % pen and utility. So again...just looking for a more thorough explanation of your reasoning.

    Also, think it would be good to identify (especially for newer players) where your alternative items would sub in in your base build. To me it's obviously O-Bow, but to others might not be.

  • If you're looking for a bit more AS in the 6th slot, could The Executioner be another alternative option to counter the increased tankiness of gods? And of course the protection shred is always great for helping your other physical gods deal more damage to a main target or FG.

  • You upgrade to Malicious Deathbringer, and I'm guessing you do this partially for more mobility and more uses of her 2, but isn't Envenomed Deathbringer still a solid option? Any reason you don't prefer that?

Hi!

1. So initially I had gilded arrow as the top choice, I was floating it around a lot recently and this build did go through a lot of changes, I do agree that Gilded can definitely a started item going into Ornate. Though recently I was fiddling with Deaths Temper and seeing its real potential. Also taking into consideration what some pro's are building. I know not always the wisest idea, but I think Temper does pack an immense punch. This isn't to say that Ornate is completely off the table. Perhaps I should put it down in my alternative items for the build.

2. I do agree with you here. As I worked towards making this I have always found myself leaning back on Odysseus as an item with potential and one that perhaps I myself use a crutch. I do stand by that I like it and I think it has merit even for being a 0 power item. I suppose, trying not to be a meme, but zap zap hurt and Ive always enjoyed it paired with Silverbranch, for obvious reasons.

3. It had been on my radar no doubt and since perhaps O-bow could be taken out it would be another alternative I could slide into the bottom.

3. This was a super tough one for me. I have been an Envemoned stan for a long time, and it was going to be Envenomed in that slot, but I had to take into consideration it recent nerfing. Yes I know Malicious got a similar-ish nerf, but my focus has shifted more into Malicious being a viable and quite honestly nice option for Jing Wei. Getting her dash up, sure is great... but I'm here for getting those bolts back up ASAP.

Thank you for your insight and criticism.

I'm looking to be a more talented build maker so seeing your views helps with other potential options and ideas <3

Awesome and insightful responses, thanks Vulpine!

I've been using Envenomed as a default for ADCs since the Glyphs were made, without giving nearly as much consideration to Malicious as I probably should have, even on gods that have more ability reliance such as Medusa. I really should be considering Malicious more often, even on basically full AA builds.

If you ever want to expand on your writeups/explanations, let me know if you need help with anything!
