Quick tips to play Jarvan IV

Jarvan is an early game dominant Jungler. Look to gank as frequently as possible to get yourself and your laners ahead. You can gank at level 2 once you’ve unlocked your

JarvanIVDragonStrikeQ

and

JarvanIVDemacianStandardE

if the enemy laners are weak and your laner has a strong level 1.

Use alternative ganking routes to gank your allies. You can utilise the Blast Cone to dodge commonly placed wards or the Scuttle Crab.

Jarvan has incredibly strong Dragon and Rift Herald taking potential. Try to take them whenever they’re up to get a lead. To do so, get priority in a nearby lane and then take the objective, but make sure it’s not warded.
