Threats to Jarvan IV with this build
|Anivia||I find this matchup easy since you just need to be careful with enemy jungler and with her Q-E combo. Dodge her Q and you will be okay.|
|Zyra||I find this matchup pretty easy, you just need to play safe till level 3, make her miss her E then you go Ham on her. Watch out for her plants.|
Hey everyone, my name's UnSpøkeN and I'm a EUW player that is currently Plat IV. I'm making this guide to help some of my friends and also other summoners that want to learn more about Jarvan IV, The Exemplar of Demacia! I have been playing Jarvan since Season 3, it's one of my favorite champs to play and somehow I manage to carry most of my games with him, either in jungle, top or mid. I find him extremely fun to play. I accept any advices and I answer any questions (if they are not related, I won't answer). I hope I can help with this!
Pros / Cons
- Good Damage Output
- Can burst enemy Carries pretty easily
- Scales well into late game
- Can save team with his E-Q-W combo
- Pretty easy to get ganked if he doesn't have E-Q available
- A bit easy to counter
- Struggles a bit in early game.
- His E-Q can be canceled with almost any type of cc (except snare, stun and root)
Like I said before, it's up to you if you prefer tankier masteries or damage masteries. I always go with these masteries, since I'm normally the one diving their backline in most teams I get matched with, so I just make good use of it. But you don't need to go 21-9 if you want :)
Pushing and Wave clearing
He can clear waves with E-Q at level 9 pretty easy, just E-Q-Tiamat and you got your wave pushed but don't do this type of wave clearing if you know that enemy jungler is going to gank you. Use this when you need to go b really quick or if you want to roam.
The Different stages of the game!
- Try to farm and get some few kills
- Try to snowball and get the upper hand
- Try to roam and give some kills to your team
- Burst enemy carries when roaming
- Go ham on their backline and try to kill the carries and helping your team win the teamfight
- Try not to get caught
- Always get vision of objectives
- Try to pick off someone out of position
Same as mid game but try to protect more your carries.
This guide will keep on getting updates, this is not finished yet, and while i'm getting new information to get in this guide, I will try to get some gameplays to add in this. For more information, add me. I play on EUW.
