Welcome to my first Build
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 the 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. \n\n 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. \n\n ''There is only one truth, and you will find it at the point of my lance.''\n - the ''last words'' of Jarvan IV at his failed execution

Items / Summoner Spell and why ?

I go the tank way. with the main items, but you might wonder why i take the madreds to?

i do it because of his passive which is removes 10% of the enemies Hitpoints, that make you start out with 14%, and then after the 6 seconds de-buff 14% more + you get a lot of haste, which you also get from

Summoner Spells

I go for / because they are both a killing combo, which i live you play with

you can also use Exhaust/ghost for the increasing of run your speed, for hunting or escaping.

Mark: 9x Greater Mark of Desolation To get some armor-penetration to his abilities.

Seal: 9x Greater Seal of Vitality To get the bonus Hp each level.

Glyph: 9x To get lower cooldown on your spells, very good in late gam where his is important in Team-Fight because it lows hitting enemies armor.

Quintessence: 3x Greater Quintessence of Desolation for the armor-penetration. BUT! you can also use x3 for starting out with more hp.

Go in your lane/forest get the Blue Golem Buff for CD-Reduction that will give you 30% total, due to that you have 9x .

Use the ability-Combo of your
use and then finish and charge with into the creeps.
    - which you also can see in the Champion Spotlight

and wupti, then you can get a high minion farm in no time
