Threat Champion Notes

Lee Sin Lee is decent against J4, but an early invade from Lee could set you behind. Just be careful in the early game.

Introduction

Hey everyone! This is my first guide, so forgive me if it's not very good. Keep in mind that a lot can apply differently in different situations, and overall it's better to use your own judgement.


Guide Top

Summary

J4 is an extremely powerful front line tank, however he's also a very strong bruiser if you need him to be. He has great AD ratios, so a Black Cleaver or a Warrior enchantment can add a lot of damage with him. He also has great initiation with his EQ combo, followed by an ult to lock down high priority targets. Squishy opponents have little chance against him, unless J4 gets seriously outplayed.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

J4 has some insane gap closing potential. A flash followed by an EQ into an ult is one of those examples. You can also use your E without damaging an enemy champion to grab a last second assist. That's because of your E having an attack speed boost to allied champions near him. Keep that in mind during teamfights.


Guide Top

Jungle Route

Start on the jungle camp closest to your bot lane is. For example, on the blue side, start krugs. On the red/purple side, start gromp. Make your way to your buff, then take scuttle crab if you want a little bit more health back, then go to your next buff to ensure it won't get stolen. From then on, just farm until you see an oppurtunity to gank or invade.

Final Words

That was my first guide on Mobafire that I've ever done, so I really hoped you guys enjoyed it. Please leave any feedback (positive or negative) and have the luck you need on Summoner's Rift.
