Threats & Synergies
Every now and then you can use your Q and E to lasthit, even from range.
Don't forget this build focuses on getting to a 3 item midgame powerspike, which means that you don't have to look for a lead in the laning phase.
First of all, you max W first and E second (no point in maxing Q unless your team is almost full AD and you need the shred on Q). Your W will make you tanky early on, surviving trades and all-ins you wouldn't be able to by maxing Q. Your E also gives you, as well as your whole team, more attack speed in skirmishes and early teamfights.
Your roam/TP play potential also increases. Your tank stats make it possible for you to tank enemy turrets longer after diving onto enemies. Laneswaps also benefit you more since you just have to waveclear with sunfire cape under turret, while being tankier than usual, making it hard for you to get dove. When matching a split push champion in a sidelane during the mid-game, you wouldn't be able to fight them anyways since those champions are designed to fight way more than Jarvan is. Your tankiness makes it harder for them to dive you when you waveclear as they splitpush.
