Introduction

IMO Jarvan is not the best ganker (not the worst either), Hes an ok jungler and very fun to play :D. I play jarvan because my team usually plays European Team comp AP top AP mid support/Ad carry bot So that makes the tank jungle. A lot of people ask why jungle? you dont need jungle... Well the truth is having a jungler in your team is awesome allows the jungler and the solo top (usually top) to level up faster and as you all know jarvan lvl 6 is awesome :D


Guide Top

Runes

atk speed for reds cause atk speed is awesome when jungling
Armor pen well cause we will be auto attacking a lot in the jungle
armor yellows cause its 2 gud i'd switch those for dodge if ur laning jarvan
mg resist per level is better than flat because you wont see many AP carrys in the jungle and most of early game dmg is AP so u want more MRES later on
and for Quintessences you can choose whatever you want atck dmg/ health/ armr pen/ or w/e

Masteries

i Like to run 1/8/21 just for the smite and the mana regen :P u can also run 0/21/9 if u want to be tankier but i like to spam my abilities and the reduced cd are helpful 2 ;P


Guide Top

Items

ok so to be more specific:
-Get ur madred's razor
-Get boots
-Get heart of gold as fast as you can
-start to build catalyst or Negatron if they have 2 much Mgc Dmg
-Get Sheen when u feel like you need more Damage
-Against heavy magical team get both banshees and FoN
-Against Heavy physical team u can get Warmogs + atma's instead
-Finish trinity Force
-Mix those items depending the matchup

Skill Sequence

Grab your E for the bonus atck speed and armor (awesome stats for jungling) max Q for dmg then feel free to max whatever you want (i like to max E secnd)


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Smite : Reason ur jungle lol
Flash : i like to run flash cause you can do some amazing thing with your ult and flash like when someone is chasing u ult them and flash out :) also if ur chasing u can flash ult or flash combo flag ult
Ghost : well its ok 2 feel free 2 switch with Flash but imo Flash is better


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Jarvan is nice in arranged 5v5 for solo queue it realy dependant cause a bad jarvan can trap a sona and enemy tryndamere lol


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-great ult and flag combo
-great passive for harrasing (if lane)
-1 slow 1 knock up and his ult= lolfest
-great for trapping with ult when using aoe team comp
-More

Cons:
- Sucks on the wrong hands
-Better gankers and fastest junglers out there


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

Standard Jungle route :
Ask for leash and get ur E first kill Blue then wolves then wraiths then golems then recall and lizard

Remember you may want to go steal their red at the beggining and give it to your carry for more laning power


Guide Top

Team Work

Always make sure you use ur ult correctly (try to trap only the enemy and ur melee/offtank)


Guide Top

Summary

Jarvan is awesome at initiating and teamfights, hes not the best jungler but hes great when your team is playin EU team comp, he has some good CC, Janna and gragas can reset teamfight and make ur ult useless

Updates coming soon
