Introduction

Hello im StDelyn,

and this is my first guide on MOBAfire, i choose Jarvan qus i really like that champion. If u ever played Jarvan you see him mostly in the top lane or in the jungle, but i found that Jarvan can also support qus he doesnt really needs items and when u normally play him u get a philospoher's stone and a heart of gold which are excellent support items.

Lets start off with the build!

Pros - Cons

Pros:

Much cc
Tanky
Doesnt need much items
Makes ur junglers gank easy (see the first one)

Cons:

Melee
No sustain
No real threat till lvl 2
Can be CC-d to death and ur done.

Overall:

I think he is a great support not only qus he can make ganks soo easy and he can let the AD carry get kills pretty easy. Although i think ur Jungler or Top should be really tanky someone like: Shyvana or Shen.

Runes

Runes are standard tanky-bruiser runes.
If u get flat armour runes u can harras soo much u want, and the movement speed also helps when chasing or fleeing.
THe magic resist helps against mid charachters like morgana which can do easy damage.. Although Morgana isnt the best example qus u can just E - Q away but u get the point.
Health runes are switchable with everything.

Masteries

0/21/9

I picked 21 in defense qus Jarvan is still a melee which must take huge damages also this helps in lane to harras. The 9 in utility are really needed to get through the early game, because Jarvan really uses mana alot even with the Faerie Charm, the movement in the utility are same as the runes usefull.
Why i dont put some in damage? Qus as this Jarvan support u role isnt damages but tanky and giving ur AD carry much kills.

Items

The philosopher's stone is for Jarvan mana and hp rg and the Heart of Gold builds in Randiums omen which is a great item on Jarvan. Shurelya's is also a good item because u can speed ur self up and get people more easily. If there is much AD u rush Thornmail and Frozen heart as ur items. If there is much AP u get a force of nature as soon as possible. Get youmuu's for more damage and elixers are always a must on every champion.

Summoner Spells

Flash + Exhaust / Heal

Flash is awesome on Jarvan because u can flash + ultimate or flash + E - Q combo.
Exhaust is always usefull if u knock someone up and they flash away u can just exhaust them and u can still get to them.
In the times supported Jarvan i always used Exhaust but Heal can also have some nasty tricks.


Guide Top

Laners

To lane with i should think:

Ashe is awesome lvl 1 and 2 so when u get ur E and Q she can do much damage in time.

Kog maw is also usefull qus he does much damage in the little time u knock them up.

Graves also can be usefull, but i never laned with him.

Sivir aslo can be usefull, qus she can hit her boomerang soo easily, but also never laned with her.

Varus can be usefull but u wont get kills very early i think..

Ezreal is better than Graves and the other ones but i dont know for sure, but he can hit his Q so easily and he can do much damage.

Laning against:

I think Jarvan support doesnt gets counter that fast only by:

Lux, Q and soo much vision.

Alistar, Really much cc.

Blitzcrank, Just ward the brushes and u will be fine if u stand behind ur minions.

Nautilus, He can support i think. Never saw him.
