Introduction






Jarvan is one of my best AD's in the game, and it's pretty crazy than most ad's.

I played TANK Jarvan before, and its fine, but it just doesn't catch my attention. Jarvan can be seen as more than a tank,off-tank. but rather a AD.

Is your most favorite weapon and is crucial to land every hit.

Your ward,predicting, and essential to start full combo (burst)

The power of AD Jarvan is so intimidating, you'll make people WTF with your immense AD.

Pros / Cons

Pros

    Great Damage
    Huge Burst
    Damage Reduction
    Bonus Armor and Attack Speed

Cons
    Squishy
    Takes time to do burst
    Failing knock-up is dead
    Requires thinking to land

Ganking, Timing

Jarvan has one of the best ganking abilities in my opinion. His combo gives great gank,escape, and mobility. Not only does the burst do any damage, but give three effects. Bonus attack speed, armor, and a damage reduction. Knowing how to time a combo will land some unbelievable things you would never imagine from one burst.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes, I take two Quintessence of Strength, and one Desolation. I take nine Mark of Desolation, and Seal of Malice. For gylphs, I take nine Glyph of Strength. Making you have huge AD off the start.


Guide Top

Masteries

For Masteries, I take 21/0/9, for being offensive at the start. Giving chances to be offensive as possible.

Items

Final Build



Early Game 1-9

Start with a and lane as usual with a partner or solo. Try to be aggressive to get minion farms, since its the most crucial time for the build. Work your way up to [icon=Berserker's Greaves size=30

Mid Game 10-14

By now, with enough farms. You should be able to get a depending on your farm or kills, or somewhere around. Now after, just work on

Late Game 15-18

Now this is where it gets tricky. Your gonna be squishy, but atleast take someone down with you. You should have a by then. But later a .

Additional Items

Some are or philosopher stone To make things easier instead of rushing


Guide Top

Farming


For farming, dont be scared to auto hit. Your passive gives you a boost since it does bonus % hp damage.


Guide Top

Team Work

Teamwork is the most hardest thing to do. Especially with your ult. You dont want to trap your team into your ring and make them die. So, since your Ult stacks with AD damage,y\ use your ult to damage them instead of trapping them too.

DO NOT INITIATE ANY FIGHTS. Your a AD. Unless you have too by the team. Being in a fight is tricky, cause you gotta find a way to kill the carry.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Good Options


Exhaust fills this role like ignite, but to land your burst easier and attack better.


MUST HAVE.


To catch up with them and use or


To counter backdoor or minions and backdoor.

Ok Options


Not really my favorite, but its fine.


You'll die easily, but in early game its fine.
