Jarvan IV Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is a guide aimed towards you who wants make a over power view of Jarvan IV. I make this guide because I don't see anyone makin a nice Offtank build of Jarvan. I fall in love of Jarvan cause he has the power, the power who I sought, the power of Demacia! I also like to tell you as I'm brasilian, so please correct my bad english! Jarvan IV as a great champion and have a amazing history.
Almost forgot. This guide has help of jhoijhoi and without her I didn't make this guide!
In the jungle, you wanna want some movement speed, cause helps a lot in low level gaming. Is aways a better way to start a game.
MID Game Itens
The Black Cleaver is a powerfull item from Jarvan IV, cause your ultimate requires you some health (from the item) and armor/magic resist(you i'll get it in the runes)
Frozen Mallet has the perfect passive for Jarvan IV, with this item, the champion got some armor and has a combo with your "W" Golden Aegis
Late Game Itens
Infinity Edgeare a awsome item who gives you damage and critical strike, and has a combo with Atma's Impaler
Atma's Impaler is a perfect item and all the build has a combo with it. Infinity Edge combo with critical strike, Frozen Mallet and The Black Cleaver combo with his passive.
Jarvan IV Skills
Dragon Strike: That ability do a damage in front of Jarvan IV, do a nice damage.
Golden Aegis: This one gives Jarvan IV a shield, and slow the enemies in area.
Demacian Standard: This is my favourite skill, gives you a armor and attack speed buff.
Cataclysm: This is Jarvan IV ult, he goes in enemies direction and holds all enemies in area.
Tips and Tricks
- If you use Dragon Strike on Demacian Standard direction, you will throw all enemies up, and its a great escape.
- Your ult can kill all members of your team, if you don't use in good way. If you can't tank, don't use it, only for chasing.
- Your passive has psycall damage one time and 6 seconds later will do again, so, use it in diferent targets in the jungle
- He is awsome jungler, clean it very fast;
- He have two "CC" who helps team a lot;
- He have a excelent gank on late game;
- Have a great escape (Q+E).
- Your ultimate can screw up your team fight;
- He is kinda hard to play;
- You need to know how combo your Q+E;
- He is easy counterable
Jarvan IV aways need a good armor and magic resist for tank in his ultimate, and have some itens who is powerfull in late game.
I usually make this for Jarvan in late game, cause he is very focused in the ult. This item can subistitute Wriggle's Lantern or Infinity Edge.
This item is not in the main build because its a UNIQUE passive and support aways do that, so if your support don't do that please make sure have one aegis in the build. This item can subistitute Infinity Edge.
Trinity Force and Youmuu's Ghostblade is a smart way to damage, cooldown recuction, critical chance and health, it's not on main build cause Jarvan IV don't need Sheen and also The Black Cleaver is so much overpower on season 3, doing damage, cooldown reduction and health. Trinity Force and Youmuu's Ghostblade has amazing passives and work together, its a choice, bot for me its not a better choice.
Its a amazing item for Jarvan IV, it's the better choice to do for magic resist and have a awsome passives who gives you a shield and give +1 attack damage for every 2.5% damage of your maximum health you missing. In other words, you gain damage same you missing your health. Its amazing when you are focused.
