Welcome to my first guide here at SoloMid.Net!Hello! I'm Rippa and i am going to show you my way of jungle Jarvan! But first things first, English is not my strong subject in school here in sweden so please stay with me D:
What I think of Jarvan (quick mini review): Stronk ganker pre lvl 6 and when he hits lvl 6, strong initial clear time, hard to gank in the jungle after lvl 2, his jungle becomes godly if some1 leaches the blue for him. Im goin to talk a little more about this down below!
MasteriesWhy do i take these masteries? Well... The masteries in the Utility is obvious, you need the Exp gain bonus and the buff duration is nice. The defence tree is to make sure u stay healthy while jungling, while it's not needed i feel it's the right choice. And the points in the offence tree are just fillers =-P
RunesThe runes... I like to take AD+ArPen because well... Stonewall008 told me :D I just took the some of the rune choises from him! Props to Stonewall008: http://www.youtube.com/user/stonewall008?blend=2&ob=1
That dude is a beast =-P
ALWAYS TAKE SMITE WHEN YOU ARE JUNGLING, I DONT CARE IF YOU CAN JUNGLE WITHOUT IT, FFS JUST TAKE IT, DAMNS SCRUBS... /rant over
Ok, always take smite^^
And flash is just my preference over ghost, but u can take any 2nd summoner spell really =)
Passive: Martial Cadence
Jarvan IV exploits his target's opening, dealing a % of the target's current HP as magic damage. This effect cannot occur on the same target for 6 seconds.
Good passive that up's your dmg in the jungle and in ganks, great passive overall.
Q: Dragon Strike
Jarvan IV charges through his opponent, dealing physical damage and lowering their armor by a %. This will pull Jarvan IV to a Standard if it encounters one, knocking up all enemies in his path.
Not too great in the jungle... 1 point works. But in lane its awesumsauce (This is about jungling if
you havent caught up yet)
W: Golden Aegis
Jarvan IV calls upon the ancient kings of Demacia to shield him from harm and slow surrounding enemies.
TeamFight King, not too great in the jungle but it sure helps with the ganking because of the AoE slow, max this 2nd.
E: Demacian Standard
Passively grants Jarvan bonus attack speed and armor. Active: Throws a Demacian flag, dealing physical damage and granting passive benefits to nearby allies.
This is the shiet in the jungle! Passive armor and AtkSpd Buff, OhMy, Aoe Dmg, OhMy, Double the passive effect when activated and a Knock Up/Dash when comboed with Q... MAX THIS FOR IMBA JUNGLING
Jarvan IV heroically leaps at his target, dealing physical damage and creating a circle of terrain around them for a few seconds.
Great ganking tool, with one flaw. You may be locking your teammates out and you dont do too much dmg but... yea sometimes you can pull it off. Great initiation tool in teamfights, you can make their carry burn summoners really early in the fight so that gives your team the advantage! Great skill overall!
Item BuildStart with the standart Cloth Armor five Health Pots. Build it to a wriggles to up your jungling speed and to give u that ward. Heart Of Gold can also work. After that its mostly situational, but taking a BVeil and a Sunfire gives you great survivability. Take an Atmas after that. Thats pretty much it, take more tanky items + Tri Force if your game never ends ;)
JunglingThe Route you are going to take is the standard route, Blue(smite it)->Wolves (try to do the knock up across the wall)->Wraith (same here)-> Red (same here =>)-> Double Golems (You know how it goes).
Once you are done with that you can start ganking lanes, you can recall or take a lane for your teammate. If you can pull of the KnockUp combo the ganks become easy, he can even dive turrets early because of high armor and a shield!
Final CommentsTheres my build folks, i hope you enjoyed and understand that jungle Jarvan IV is not a bad jungler. Try him out! Super Fun, Super Satisfying to get a succesfull gank off! He is also one of the coolest champions in the game =)
