Hey Guys, RhinosRules here with a Jarvan Guide. I feel that the Jarvan builds are quite old and out of date on Mobafire not to mention they consisted of atma's.
So here I am with a quick guide on how to build a Tanky Tons of damage Jarvan in Season 3.
Disclaimer The perfect team comp for this build would consist of a tank and another half tank (or someone who can take some hits).
Pros / Cons
The ability to stick to their ad carry.
Sleeper OP (shhh).
Surprising burst with his combo.
Can Clear Lanes fast
No Inbuilt Sustain.
You can kill your whole team with your ult.
Mana hungry early game.
Your E-Q-Auto Attack combo is the best their is. Assuming you hit it they should never deal back more damage. With ignite you should easily be able to get a kill. Once you do you will snowball quickly!
Darius This guy seems quite broken at the moment, all you can do and E-Q-AA combo then get away as quickly as you can. Remember his ult is ridiculously good
Yorick Make sure you dont let him harass you, your going to have a bad time if that happens
Too tell you the truth I don't think Jarvan has any hard counters, if you can land your combo, you should be pretty good against anyone!
Excuse my paint skills. So if I am on the Blue Side I normally ward in that place. I ward there because if the lane is even and a jungler comes to gank they will go through the tri bush into the vision of my ward, this placement also allows vision of the river so they cant gank from that position.
Purple Side If their jungler is always farming on their of the map having a ward at the entrance to blue is the best spot. The only con of this is that if they go through your own jungle to gank you wont see them but if mid wards properly you can see them entering your jungle and stay back accordingly.
These are pretty standard for the top lane.
Armour: Gets you quite tanky ,
Ad: For that early kill
Magic Resist: Everyone needs that magic resist
Mana Regen: Since you can run out quite quickly in early game.
Damage, Damage, Damage and 9 in the defence tree to get tanky.
Levelling your Dragon Strike first will help you do tons of damage.
If are against a physical damage dealer you can level up your Demacian Standard for the extra armour and don't forget that attack speed.
I like to get my Golden Aegis as late as possible to focus on having early game damage.
Jarvan's Ultimate can really do wonders for your team if you have some AOE. If you get a good ult, that traps the majority of there team and then your team consists of a fiddle, miss fortune, ezreal so on, its gg. So AOE works wonders with your ult(as long as its there team and not yours in the ultimate).
Your Role as Jarvan
So what exactly is your role?
You can E-Q-R that enemy ad Carry and just absolutely crush him.
You can also be the "Baby sitter". Your baby is your ad carry, if someone tries to touch them you E-Q that guy. If you time it right you can also ult them (MAKING SURE: Your ad carry is not in the ult), if you pull this off this lets your ad carry have free reign to attack the poor guy in your ult.
Something else you can also do which is pretty stand is part initiate. If you have a tank say leona for example, ult their team, you make sure you E-Q all of them, dont give them a chance to fight.
Hope this quick guide has helped you in some way!
