Jarvan IV Build
Not Updated For Current Season
Hi! First of all, my english is poor, it's my first build so don't blame me. Thanks.
I'll be precise and fast just for you! Don't skip the steps.
Here, i can give you some tools for win, some hopes too "green up your history"
Jarvan's Code :
My Jarvan is a winner.
My Jarvan is an engager
My Jarvan can suicide for save our team/ or win a teamfight
My Jarvan need a great teamplay.
Pros / Cons
It's very simple.
One of greatest engage in LoL
Good Harassing (when you have mana)
Good Escape (when you have mana)
Good warder (<3 Flags)
Hurt a lot at CC (bumps, criticals, slow)
Amazing to play a DEMACIAAAAAAA
A little bit squishy when engages (on my build)
Vulnerable to long range
Need a veritable teamplay
Don't be solo
Fear champs like Leblanc or Jax
Prefer a mate like Taric (stun + Heal) or another controler
What about this runes?
Red : Armor Penetration, just a must have with an harrasser like Jarvan, his "Q" hurt a lot in Early game
Blue: CD reduc is usefull for anychamps, And Jarvan need it for spamming
Yellow: You need regen mana for Jarvan,
"Why not regen per level?"
Cause you need regen in early for sure! In later game, regen isn't so necessary
(regen per level is rentable from level 7)
Quintessence: Personnally, I think armor pen is a good combo with the Red runes, but u can change it to HP quint.
And about items?
A lot of Jarvan buy Phantom Dancer for first item, but trust me
Trinity Force > Phantom Dancer
Why? Trinity gives you a lot of different little bits :P
Mana, Hp, Attack Speed, Movement. Shen's power is your, and u can slow.
If you are a Phantom's Jarvan. You increase your mortality by 600%, Decrease your Utility by 600% (like "WOOOOW, nice KS Jarvan!").
Give you a lot of damage and a nice lifesteal, but u can remplace it by a Starck's fervor (that depends of your teammates)
Cause Suicide's engages are suicides...
WTF BOOTS OF MOBILITY?????
Aha, trust me, it work.
You can now gank a lot, last hit your ennemies, and make Ghost+Boots combo to escape!
Masteries, Summoner Spells & Skills Sequence
And about Masteries?
Nothing... Classical masteries.
A lot of AD, a little bit resist and one point in Ghost.
Then, I prefer the Ghost + Exhaust combo (it's the same after the ghost's nerf)
For a nice speed and reduce damage to.... Leblanc :P for exemple.
U can remplace Ghost to Flash, but Ghost and your boots are great together, don't forget this!
Not about this... Spam your "Q" and a little bit your "E" (for reduce cooldown), I don't love the "W"'s utility, just one level to slow
How to play with him?
Seriously, Jarvan isn't so hard to play.
But a good Jarvan (without feeds, prisonning allies and other fails)
Need some guide lines.
First, read again the Jarvan's Code:
add "-My Jarvan isn't a Rambo" into this one.
And follow this lines
With my build, your Early is simple:
- You have more hp (+180hp)
- You have a regen mana
- And you can hurt a lot with your armor penetration
So Harrass them all (don't fail :p) and be careful! you are not Rambo.
Ahhh the most important time in game. Jarvan need some ganks, to increase his gold. you have your ult? Nice Because your jump
CAN BLOCK A VLADIMIRand all ennemies.
So use it to engage, play with your exhaut to minimize the damages.
If one of your friend is blocked into this. You can broke your ulti (push your "R" a second time) and kill them all :p
You're so strong now, a trinity, a banshee a little bit of lifesteal, What else?
Nothing, Gank with your team, don't be solo and backdoring a lot, win is for you!
No so complicated... you need just a team, and be fast.
AAAAH, that's the question
with who can i play?
Jarvan want a stunner:
Like a Pantheon
Jarvan like a controller:
Like a Xin Zhao
Jarvan can be with an healer:
AND Jarvan ... Love the 3 into 1:
Don't be solo.
Don't be against a regen champ (chogat, olaf.. etc)
Don't be against an anti-Jarvan (Leblanc, Jax...)
Playing with Daft Punk into your bass is so strong (as a nashor's buff)
Enjoy It! I'm here for any question or recommendation.
