Introduction/Game Play

Hi! So this is my Jarvan build! He is a great late game build and is very tough to kill!


Early Game:
You'll want to play defensively! Don't go for ganks unless your teammate(s) are there, If they are there! initiate with a Throw up Combo of Q/E, then slow with a W, and then! Exhaust! by this time they SHOULD be dead! If you're level 6. wait till one of your teammates is in melee with the enemy before using your ult, so they can be in the ring for the fun too! Unless one of your teammates is a blinker! For I.E. Katarina/Kassadin/Any Champion with a blink like ability/OR any champion with Summoner-flash!

Mid Game:
YOU ARE TANK! IT'S YOUR JOB TO INITIATE!
Now's where the team battles start to show up and begin, you should have maxed E, and level 3 W, for the slow and the bonus to attack speed for the dps!

Late Game:
YOU ARE TANK! IT'S YOUR JOB TO INITIATE!
Now is where the game is winding down, everyone's finishing out their item builds, at this point you should be basically unkillable unless someone has been fed, your team sucks, or youre just really far behind!

Items!

So the first 4 items are very good to have! but the last 2 are depending on the make of the other team's build... I.E are they AP heavy?! if so! go with banshee's veil and force of nature! if they're AD heavy. go Thornmail and Sunfire Cape! if theyre a mix go with whats up at the item build!
