Introduction

Intro to the most amazing cookie cutter build in the Universe. You shall like it.

Items

The items I have chosen are very generic for a team that has a generic team comp (AD Carry, Tanky AD top laner, Ad (Tanky) Jungler, AP carry, and Support). Other items I like to purchase on Jarvan include Sunfire for a heavy AD team, or Gaurdian Angel if you really need the extra life.

Playstyle

The most important thing about Jarvan is how you play him and help your team. Your early game should consist of one thing, and one thing only- farming. JUST FARM. Let your Jungle help out lanes, become so beyond fed and farmed that mid-late game you are out-leveled and hella tanky.

TEAM FIGHTS:

Kill the ranged AD.
If you want to wreck as Jarvan the one thing I can tell you for team fights is destroy their AD carry, then you will be good to go. Seeing you will be tanky as hell while doing tons of damage the opponents will not be able to stop you without all focusing you, then you have done your job as the tank. Use your E to Q then smack around the carry before ulti-ing to ensure the kill. When you initiate the team fight make sure to use your Omen the moment you dash into the entire team so it hits all of them.

I AM JARVAN AND I ACTUALLY KNOW HOW TO HELP

Jarvan's ultimate always seems to be the bane of both teams, good Jarvans ensure kills and escapes, bad Jarvans get their team aced.

Escape Tip: Ultimate onto the enemies that are chasing you, pop your shield then flash out. Follow up with an E-Q combo if needed.

Please, do not ulti your AD or AP carry into a team fight. The only person that should be in your ulti is you and the enemies.

Conclusion

Jarvan is one of the strongest top laners in the game, though he does not have an ability to heal himself, he does have insane tankyness and damage. If played properly Jarvan will carry all games to victory.
