Hey dudes,the rules are those!
1.When you want to do the dash,use the flag exactly in the back of the enemy so the flag can make damage too,and then use your spear...
2.If all of your teammates are dead,and a horde of enemies are coming,jump on them,and when the turret will atack ONE TIME someone,use your ultimate fast.
3.TROLL:ON 5v5 GO MID!!!,a Fed JARVAN a fed jarvan iv...XD

4.always use Q>E to harras enemies.
5.Play the game with Mind Heist xP

Jarvan IV

As the royal family of Demacia for centuries, members of the Lightshield line have spent their lives waging war against any who opposed Demacian ethics. It is said that every Lightshield is born with anti-Noxian sentiment in his blood. Jarvan IV is no exception, even though he is the first Lightshield born to the age of League of Legends. As his forefathers had before him, he led Demacian troops into bloody engagements with Noxian forces, and on many occasions he has bled alongside wounded allies and fallen comrades. In his most crushing defeat, he was outmaneuvered and captured by a Noxian battalion under the command of Jericho Swain. This mistake nearly cost him his life at the hands of Urgot, but he was rescued by the Dauntless Vanguard, an elite Demacian strike force led by Jarvan’s childhood companion, Garen.

Those close to him believed that his capture changed him. Xin Zhao was quoted as saying: "His eyes never seemed to look at you, only through you to something he could not look away from." One day, without warning, Jarvan IV handpicked a squad of Demacian soldiers and left Demacia, vowing to find "atonement". He began by tracking and hunting the most dangerous beasts and bandits he could find in northern Valoran, but he soon tired of such prey. Seeking something that only he understood, he ventured south of the Great Barrier. He wasn’t heard from again for nearly two years. After many had assumed the worst, he returned to glorious fanfare on the streets of Demacia. His Demacian plates were adorned with the bones and scales of creatures unknown. His eyes bore the wisdom of someone twice his age. Of the twelve soldiers who had departed with him, only two returned. In a tone as cold and steady as steel, he swore to bring the enemies of Demacia to their knees.

“There is only one truth, and you will find it at the point of my lance.” –- the “last words” of Jarvan IV at his failed execution

Final Words

I consider Jarvan a very strong melee champion if played correctly, i believe he can even be considered a carry in some situations. Just remember that he IS semi squishy with this guide, but his damage is NUTS. Please try it out before you down vote and tell me what you think i can add/improve. Opinions are always welcome but please don't troll/flame me,, I am not the type of person that goes onto other Jarvan guides and down vote to make mine higher, so please respect me enough to do the same :)
