Threats & Synergies
Fairly easy matchup, getting tabis, and Bambi cinder helps. Trade with him until he's low and all in.
Farm best as you can, ask for help, will out damage you, and can cancel your E-Q.
Tabi and brambles help a lot early. Trade when his shield, and knock up is down.
All in him when his barrel combo is down, Tabis work against him well.
Bait her parry by dropping e, Tabi and brambles help a lot.
E-Q auto him until he is low, all in him, hexdrinker helps plenty.
Out Damages you, Care when fury is high, fight when on low fury. Tabi and Bramble.
For the 2nd Rune Tree, we take Sorcery, get The Ultimate Hat and Transcendence, as cdr is important on Jarvan, having your ult and combo up frequent can greatly turn fights around.
If you can't trade with your laner, you should rush tiamat and try to instant clear the minions with q auto tiamat, and just roam to assist your jungler with a counter jungle or gank mid.
Be careful of doing E-Q combo for a trade on the laner, as this is your only way of escape excluding flash. Using W to slow down a gank and trying to dodge a key cc is also an important thought when avoiding a gank.
Finally keep an eye out on the map and use your teleport to its full potential, as Jarvan can easily turn fights in your team's favor.
Setting up kills and getting picks with jarvan is extremely easy with his E-Q combo and his ult. If a pick goes out well, look to secure objectives.
You can E-Q to a direction to get close to an enemy, right once your animation ends, flash on to them to knock them up.
Ulting an enemy and E-Q out of your ult without deactivating your ult. This is great if escaping from a gank, or leaving them for your team to focus while go after others.
-Make sure to abuse your passive early game as its extremely strong.
-No need to hit E-Q on to them, can use to get in range for ult, and team mates will assist you.
-Save E-Q for a flash, use your w to slow them and get some autos in with grasp of undying.
