Core Items

These items are necessary in order to play Jinnar optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so

Arena of Valor Orb of the Magi
Orb of the Magi
Orb of the Magi is wonderfully suited for Jinnar. Needing both ability power and durability, the item keeps Jinnar healthy as he dives into enemy teams. The restoration to his health and mana on level up will help keep him out on the field and fighting much longer than he would otherwise be able.
Arena of Valor Soaring Aura
Soaring Aura
Due to his relatively short range, Soaring Aura can be a great fit for Jinnar. It gains effectiveness for each magic damage dealer on your team, so consider your team composition when picking it up. The health is provides is a nice addition to Jinnar’s arsenal as well.

Optional Items

Offensive Item Choices

Arena of Valor Staff of Nuul
Staff of Nuul
Staff of Nuul pierces enemy magic resistance, making it a great way to counter enemy tanks. It is less effective when opponents are light on magic defense, so give it a miss if that is the case.
Arena of Valor Holy of Holies
Holy of Holies
As with Orb of the Magi, Jinnar benefits from the combination of magic and defensive stats that Holy of Holies offers. An incredible value for how much it costs, Holy of Holies will make Jinnar’s abilities massive.
Arena of Valor Frosty's Revenge
Frosty’s Revenge
Offering ability power, health, and movement speed, Frosty’s Revenge is a great all around item for an all around hero like Jinnar. The main draw, however, is the slow that it offers, making it harder for those hit by the wielder’s abilities. With his suite of AoE abilities, Jinnar is very well suited to slowing large portions of the enemy team all at once.
Arena of Valor Hecate's Diadem
Hecate’s Diadem
Hecate’s Diadem is a purely offensive item, offering the highest ability power potential in the game. Jinnar will need this to ensure that he gets as much damage from his spells as possible.
Arena of Valor Rhea's Blessing
Rhea’s Blessing
Rhea’s Blessing is an excellent choice for Jinnar, offering him a bit of sustain through its magic life steal. The shield it provides whenever Jinnar’s health falls will make him even harder to tear down once he sweeps into battle.
Arena of Valor Berith's Agony
Berith’s Agony
Berith’s Agony is a nice hybrid choice between offensive and defensive items, adding a ton of armor and decent ability power to go along with cooldown speed. Torture adds a nice burn effect, which synergizes particularly well when poking with Battering Beads.

Defensive Items Choices

Arena of Valor MEDALLION OF TROY
Medallion of Troy
As a frontliner, Jinnar will need sources of survivability to stay up in skirmishes. Medallion of Troy provides health and magic defense, keeping him up and fighting in clashes. The cooldown reduction is also welcome, giving Jinnar better access to his abilities.
Arena of Valor The Aegis
The Aegis
The Aegis provides arguably the best defense in the game, with an amazing passive to go with tons of armor. What makes it great for bruising mages as well is the wonderful 20% cooldown reduction – Jinnar will constantly be pumping out his abilities with The Aegis equipped.

Boots Upgrade

Arena of Valor Enchanted Kicks
Enchanted Kicks
Enchanted Kicks will help Jinnar’s abilities hit a bit harder. Take these if the survivability other boots offer isn’t a huge issue in the match.
Arena of Valor Gilded Greaves
Gilded Greaves
Gilded Greaves is always a good pick, the resistance the only way to counter enemy control effects. This is particularly useful for Jinnar who can rely on the movement speed that his ultimate provides.

Sample Item Builds

We lean in heavily on the magic pierce, adding up to a massive 300 after four items have been purchased. Though Jinnar will be somewhat fragile with this build, the damage resistance from Nirvana should have him alive just long enough to melt away all who come your way. Once the game goes late, swap Spoopy Mask out for your preferred tier 3 item.

This build amps up Jinnar’s magic ability while thickening his skin so that he can charge into the enemy team and wreck face with his area of effect spells. With the exception of Hecate’s Diadem, each of the items adds something to his defensive potential. The Aegis will make it particularly difficult for physical damage dealers to deal with Jinnar, as their movement speed and attack speed will be slowed in addition to their damage lessened to the tune of 360 armor. Between Hecate’s Diadem, Soaring Aura, and Holy of Holies, Jinnar will be able to deal hefty amounts of damage despite opting away from purely offensive items.

This build takes a different approach to supporting the team. Rather than taking damage and dealing out his own, Jinnar uses these items to control his enemies’ movements while slowly chipping away at their health. Frosty’s Revenge and Frost Cape will stack together to slow enemy movement down to a crawl, allowing Jinnar and his team to run circles around them. Berith’s Agony adds a bit of defense along with the ability power it offers while also taking advantage of the large amounts of cooldown reduction present in the build.

Wouldn’t blitz Blade be a Nice item for Jinnar? By it’s passive?

It seems like jinnar got nerfed in last update. His damage is even low on spawns now. Anyone else noticed it?
