Jarvan IV Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi guys , this is my first build here , so probably not gonna be very fancy :) I play Jarvan IV since he came out , and actually he is my favorite champion now :) , have made so many games , tried a lot of builds , but this one works best for me . Hope U like It !!!
Runes & Masteries
I use primarily armor penetration > Greater Mark of Desolation and Greater Quintessence of Desolation . I think that some HP boost gonna be good for early game > Greater Seal of Fortitude . And the other thing this champion needs a lot except the armor penetration is the attack speed where i get > Greater Glyph of Alacrity
I guess its ok to not put the pictures of the runes , you can see it on the top of the page , right ? :)
About the Masteries i play mostly offense with some utility points , the buff mastery tree is important , because after all this is jungler build , and this champion is created to be great killing machine , which explains the offense masteries :)
My Top Spells for this build
My opinion is that smite is a must for this build , for a second spell i prefer ghost , because it helps to chase , in ganks , and to escape when being chased .
Optional Spells :
This spell is very good for every assassin :) and can be the final touch , as well could help for enemies regenerating hp faster : Vladimir , Garen , Mundo .. but still i prefer the ghost , could be an option though
Flash :Another great spell for every champion , and my favorite , but i think the demacian standard is enough :) does the same job with even bigger range
Exhaust :Could be also good option , with this spell you will give your enemies almost no chance to escape
Pros / Cons
great damage early game
shield (absorbs damage)
great in chasing
Vulnerable to C.C.
Not Enough MP early game
Jarvaan's IV has Unique abilities . He can go in and out in battles , knockin up enemies , or great escape mechanism using your Damacian Standard and Dragon Strike
Jarvan can be very useful in saving allies by trapping enemies + escape mechanism , or can be the final touch in chasing enemies ;) using his Cataclysm Ability
Martial CadenceHis passive is probably the best in game . Does 10 % damage of HP every 6 sec on the same champion , no CD on different champions . Great burst of damage for early game :)
And Last Golden Aegis gives Jarvan some better survivability and great in chasing ( slows enemies )
I have seen this style of jungling in one of Master YI builds here , but for me and my build its probably the best way . So 1st i buyand2and go streight to the 2 golems .one of the golems andI use my 1st potion ther . After killing golems i go to wraiths . U should be lvl 2 , so u can knock up wraiths with E and Q , after focus the blue wraith , drink 2nd potion if needed . After go to the wolfs , E and Q again and focus big wolf . After killing them port back to base and buyDo The Same process again Two Golems > Wraiths > Wolfs . Port back again and buyand 1 or 2Go Streight Blue Golem .and E Q for knocking up . After killing blue go Wraiths > 2 Golems ( u should haveRDY so go straight Red Golem . After getting red buff u can go gank . After gank port back and go forand( if possible ) you can go jungle till u get red buff again . Try to dominate over the game for the red buff :) it gives you everyhing u need to give no chance to escape to your enemies .
This build works great for me , most of the time not gonna be able to finish it :) but you will get pretty OP mid game if doing OK . Here are some of my matches results :
Please do not write bull**** if haven't tried :). Hope U Like It !!!
