Jarvan IV, Revisited.

Jarvan IV is one of beloved jungle champion in Wild Rift, pro loves it, and some folks in solo queue loves it. As time goes by, Jarvan never changes, but i need to keep it with the times, so it's time to revisit my 2nd guide ever in this website.

Pros

  • Flex pick, as you can put him as Solo, Jungle, even Support position.
  • Easy to pick up jungle, as his mechanic is easy.
  • Tank a lot of damage and helping boosting damage with shredding opponent armor plus adding more attack speed .

Cons

  • Clunky jungle without flag-and-drag.
  • Momentum-based jungler, that's mean every gank must result a kill or 2.
  • Not scaling well into late game.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Jarvan can build into 2 builds, classic Jarvan and Lethality
Classic & Support Jarvan : Jarvan need being in frontline so we going to need ton of durability items and sustainability. we gonna take [Sunfire Cape] as our 1st core item and Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate as our 2nd core items. we need both as Jarvan IvJarvan Iv weaknesses are clunky and less damage. both are covered within. you may finish with the items that you want / situation demands.

Lethality : This is the one shot build that will make you deadly as RengarRengar does but you will be squishy.


Situational items :

[Randuin Omen]You can build this against 3 AD champ line up.
Guardian AngelGuardian Angel the defensive item as attacking item. IMO, Jarvan IvJarvan Iv doesn't neeed GA as his job is initiate and try to get 3-4 man [jarvan iv:ult] , and sometime the value of the item is 0 if you cannot escape the gank.
Abyssal MaskAbyssal Mask If you want boost your OriannaOrianna / KatarinaKatarina damage and some magic resistance, use this.
ThornmailThornmail / Executioner's CallingExecutioner's Calling Anti healing. you may upgrade into Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder if necessary

Jarvan Iv

Early game

Our prince Jarvan IV, is so eager to fight for Demacia. And loves early fight. So here's what you need to do as Jarvan.

Early game is OPEN SEASON for Jarvan because he has one of the best initiator skills set and he is tank jungler. So what you need to do is get lvl 3, well how you can do it? click on this for knowing how to get level 3 ASAP for Jarvan. this is not spam link, trust me! 

Got level 3? good. find the lane you want to gank, or if there's no strange activities in the lane, just clear the jungle then reset by recall and buy your items (in the link above will also talking about ganking.)

Jarvan Iv

Mid Game

Are you ganking a lot son? If you do, congratulations. You are good Jarvan. Now, welcome to mid game. This is where you still shining but not bright as your early game. 

In this time there's a lot of teamfight, and you loves teamfight as Jarvan. Don't worry, you don't have deal A TONS OF DAMAGE  as Jarvan, what you need to do is initiate with your CataclysmCataclysm and reduce their amour with your Dragon StrikeDragon Strike and give your teammates extra attack speed with your active Demacian StandardDemacian Standard


Jarvan Iv

Late Game

Well well well, Jarvan is still Jarvan right? This is where Jarvan fall off hard, and your ADC and your mid (I'M LOOKING INTO YOU, YOU GODDAMN YASUO MAINS) shine like a sun.

Keep doing what you doing at mid game and pray to God (or science if you want) that there's no botched teamfight that cost you baron or even the game.

Jarvan Iv

TL;DR

Jarvan the fourth is a tank fighter jungler who loves to wreck havocs in teamfight and be the tank for your team (or trash teammates). He can become one of the best tank in the game or be best liability after ADC player. This champ is easy to pick up. Give it a try in the jungle.

Okay that's Jarvan IV guide, created by his lovely main. See you soon in 3rd jungle guide!


FOR THE KING. DEMACIA!

I think the item choices are outdated. In my experience, almost everyone builds Sunfire first. Other than that good guide.

Awesome guide! I love the depth and details you've added to it like pathing and early/mid/late game. Makes for a very informative guide for new J4 players. Thank you!
