Jarvan IV Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello Everyone this is my first guide. Jarvan is a Tanky Dps champion with loads of carrying potential in the top and jungle. He can burst down squishys and tank and the same time. All and all Jarvan IV is OP.
The runes are kind of straight forward. it gives him more damage, resistances and more attack speed which is nice. nothing fancy here
I run 9/21/0 because it gives jarvan enough clear power while keeping him alive in the jungle. Ive tried 21/9/0 13/17/0 and the whole 9 yards and 9/21 is the best way to
All of these items are pretty much no brainers. it gives you huge survivability with good damage and even providing a small shield to your team. Stalker's Blade - Warrior is without a doubt the best item for a bruiser jungle, it gives armor pen, damage and a slow. every other item is just plain and simple and you substitute in items whenever you need.
As for laning All of the items maximize damage output while still maintaining a healthy tankiness
Pros / Cons
[*] Good Presence
[*] Strong Pushing
[*] High Cc
[*] Strong early
[*] Strong Prince Man
[*] Squishy until late game
[*] Champions that can escape your EQ combo will outplay you and beat you
[*] Bad against champs like Riven,Zed Etc..
Ghost good. The Mobility is not really needed but it can be helpful for chasing or escaping.
Ignite good for dueling.
Exhaust good for dueling.
Smite unquestionable as jungle
Flash this is probably the best way to go with smite but the other options are good, top lane take this with teleport
Teleport best way to go for top lane, gives map control, but u can take the others
Start e for the extra defense and attack speed, Smite gromp then clear blue and wolves then back. Head to krugs and smite them then go around to Red buff and if you have smite up smite wraiths. Look for a gank mid or top. with your eq combo there is generally a guarenteed flash or kill.
Jarvan is a beast here. He has his eq ult combo wich always guarantees a kill or flash if they have no escapes. Try to look for a gank bottom and pick up drag. In team fights look for a clump of people and ult them. Your job is to lock down as many people as you can so they cant get to your team. Ulting solo is pointless. getting the mid or ad carry in your cataclysm in your ult is key even though fights are possible if you dont lock them down.
At this point you are a big wall blocking everything for your team. zoning off their carrys as much as possible in teamfights is now your job. after you either ult their carrys or just zone them away look to peel for your carrys.
