Introduction


Hey, this is my guide to Jarvan IV The Exemplar of Demacia . I donĀ“t expect to make an good guide , so just look at the build please :) I just make some pro and cons to the champ .


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros

Extremely strong early and mid game damage without damage items.
Great late game and transitioning
He has an AoE Knock-up which is deadly in close quarters ( Like in the jungle )
You can initiate for your team if needed.
Can scout with Demacian Standard ( His Flag / E )
After your core items, you have a variety of choices from survivability or damage.
Mobile with his blink from his E->Q combo! Jump over walls every roughly 10 seconds if you ever need to.
You can save your teammates with your E->Q combo and/or your ult, and since I like to build fairly tanky, you have a better chance of living if you lock yourself up in your cage with the enemy then your squishy little Teemo being chased by a Rammus with movement speed of about 1000 :C
Do you like Demacians? I like Demancians. Why is this important? When you press R and target an enemy champion, YOU YELL DEMACIA.


Cons
( Yes, Jarvan has some cons! )

Skills use quite a bit of mana at the early and mid stages of the game
Needs a lot of farm, which can be obtained easier in a lane rather then in the jungle
Misusing your ultimate can and will cause your team to hate you
Armor can drastically reduce Jarvan's damage, as I prefer to go tanky
You often have to choose if you want to build survivability or damage. Few items give both survivability and damage.
