DH5: 077 -Jarvan IV, The Exemplar of Demacia

Holy cats! It's the 77th DH5!

Today it's that spear-stabbing slayer Jarvan the IV! here he is nestled in his crater that he made through sheer awesomeness!

I actually put off drawing Jarvan for a while because his armor is a bit of a pain in the butt to draw. I really like the pauldrons and the hio guards but the rest seems a little superfluous and his spear just has too much going on. Jarvan tends to get lost in his own details and cold use some bigger shapes to make him stand out. his abilities look awesome though and while he stomps around the map he looks very badass.

In game Jarvan is a really cool tank pick if he can snag multiple enemy champions in his crater it gets really awesome. During the season 1 tourney he was a very strong pick and a lo of fun to watch in the capacity of a roaming jungle tank. All in all a solid champ to play with some really strong abilities to boot. Is anyone a big fan of this beastly Demacian? if so then take your telescoping spear and jab in some comments below!

  1. I laugh at all the people who say he is OP on the forums.

    Anyways, His Q+E Combo can be dodged pretty easily if you see the throw animation for the standard, his W is decent, and his ultimate is iffy at times. Sometimes he gets the perfect land trapping just the people he wants to kill in his arena, keeping everyone else out. Other times though, his arena traps 4 characters in it, and he is dead in 2 seconds.

    I've played him a few times, kinda meh.

    (I predicted correctly last DH5, seeing as Jarman was the only one left you haven't done. Do you plan to draw the three upcoming champions next?)

  2. Well i like Jarvan too, i dont play him but one of the things that pisses me off when i have a team with this guy is that he would trap me in the damn ult with him and the guy chasing me, only to say i should have ran faster (i had boots of swiftness)

    And im a fan of the pole arm weapon so i really like his spear (which he could have replaced Ezreal to keep that one bloody blade week going , but you did say you were putting him off)
