Hi and welcome to my first guide to Dominion Offtanks.
First of all I would like to apologise for my english, as it is not that advanced, but lets move on.
I always wanted to make a guide, in fact I have made alot of guides for other games that I play, but never for League of Legends as I do not really have a main champion, but Jarvan IV is definitely a strong pick for dominion, so thats why i would give it a go!
This will be the first Champion guide, and if you guys like it then I will make guides for other (off)tanks aswell as they are my preffered role in dominion.
1.5 Basics about Jarvan
Here is the (already older) Champion Spotlight from RiotGamesInc, its a good video to see some basics, but thats really about it, since they don't say anything about dominion, and that is what we will focus on!
For my masteries I have gone for a 9/21/0 build, Making me tankier and creating some damage.
I think the Offense tree is pretty self explanatory, increased Ghost(Or Exhaust, Whatever you prefer) , Attack Speed and Armor Penetration.
The Defensive tree is maybe a bit different then normal, I take a point in
Summoner's Resolve for my Key Skill Garrison, which enables splash damage from turrets, more info later.
For the rest I just take damage reduction and movement speed.
2.4 : ProsCons
PROS +Extremely Tanky Later into the game. +Good Passive damage versus other Tanks. +Great initiate with Damacian Standard and Dragon Strike. +Great lockdown with Cataclysm. +Able to escape out of sticky situations. +Awesome CC all around.
CONS -Weak damage early game. -Moderate/High CD on Cataclysm for the fastpaced dominion. -Relies on allies early on.
3. The First Capture
When you enter The Crystal Scar you would normally go top with 3 other people. Let the first Point be taken by someone of your allies, and head on to the top.
*If they fight back, pop Garrison and Golden Aegis right away and let the turret do the splash damage!
Turret damage is often underestimated in Dominion, but if you keep attacking your targets so they can't cap, it deals a massive amount of damage.
Try to hit every target, to gain maximum effect of your passive!
you also want to use Exhaust if you have this instead of Ghost. use it on the target with the most damage (which is most of the times going to be an AP one, because you should have tons of armor)
5. Assaulting a Capture Point.
In addition to Garrisons effect to defend, it is also a very usefull tool to Assault an enemy capture point, as it reduces turret damage imensely.
Tip: This 'assaulting technique' works very well with teammates like Tristana or Blitzcranck, who can Shoot/ Rocket Grab enemys away from their turret so you can lock them in place ouside turret range and take them down.
6. The End.
Thanks for reading my Guide for Dominion offtank Jarvan IV, its not a long guide , but any tips and crytisism is appreciated and i will continue to work on it and add some more pictueres!
