You can be very creative in your gank pathing with Jarvan and you can start ganking as soon as you hit lvl 2. It doesn't mean you should gank, but you have the option to. Because he can dash over walls, you can dodge enemy wards and gank from unexepected areas which can surprise enemies and net you a kill or summoner spells.
Lvl 2 ganks are much more effective with Red Buff because your auto's will slow the enemy and burn them for true damage
Starting the Oracle Lens is very beneficial in clearing wards and seeing whether or not the enemy knows you are in the area.
If you're behind the enemy, don't waste your Demacian Standard and Dragon Strike to close the distance but instead start walking at them and autoing them. If you have Red buff , they will get slowed and slowly start dieing. Only use your gap closer after they flash to close the distance. Your Golden Aegis is also a small slow which can also hinder their movement.
