Jarvan IV Laning Against

Jarvan IV Laning Against

Jarvan can gank at level 2 once he’s unlocked his Dragon StrikeQ and Demacian StandardE. Be aware of this as he may try to cheese an early gank in the mid or bottom lane.

Jarvan is really good at ganking in the early and mid-game. He will be looking to gank a lot, so it’s important that you try to equal his gank pressure and gank as much as you can to prevent him from getting his laners ahead.

He has rather good Dragon and objective control. Make sure you keep major objectives warded at all times so you can spot him before he secures the objective.

Jarvan IV Strategy VS

Jarvan IV Strategy VS

In team fights, Jarvan IV will look to lock down as many champions as he can with his Ultimate CataclysmR. Make sure you’re grouped as a team but not grouped so close together that he can lock everyone in his Cataclysm CataclysmR.

Jarvan’s gameplay is not very creative when it comes to fighting. Warding basic areas like bushes or chokepoints will likely spot Jarvan before he gets the chance to flank or gank.

If you can interrupt Jarvan in his combo at the start of the fight, it will be very difficult for him to get his Ultimate CataclysmR off or escape after engaging. As soon as he runs towards you, either disengage or lock him down with CC.

It’s not impossible for Jarvan IV to gank at level 2 once he has unlocked his Demacian StandardE and Dragon StrikeQ.

Once Jarvan hits level 6, his kill pressure increases a ton as his Ultimate CataclysmR is really good for ganking.

Jarvan is good in the early game and good in the mid-game too. The more gold he gets, the more he can do and the tankier he will become. Keep in mind that he will continuously look to gank in the early and look for fights in the mid-game.
