Irelia has better sustain and (in my opinion) more damage. She's a more dangerous overall top lane to play against, whereas jarvan would be filling more of a tank role if the team needed it.

Ya i agree with zomgz, Irelia, is much more better. She has a great ability for gathering creep score, has great sustain with her ult( mostly used on minions to get health), has a stun/slow (extremely useful), and her best ability of all is her W, so much true damage, and health per hit, really puts seperates the okay irelia players from the amazing ones. The only thing Jarvan has going for himself is the ult, and his knock up, a standard build for him is going tank. While Irelia is more of a hybrid/off-tank, and a deadly one at that

In just the solo top arena, Irelia wins out.
Jarvan is more versatile though (Bot kill lane, jungle, solo top)

If you're looking for just solo top, Irelia hands down. Comparing the two champs overall? Jarvan has quite a bit to offer and that ult is not nearly as useless as everyone pretends it is. It wins games. (Burn a flash, block a corridor to allow your team to escape a potential ace, block a team trying to get away, trap peeps under turret, solid ganks)

U forgot to factor the fact that Jarvan shout "DEMACIAA!!", that by itself is pretty interesting.

And that's not enough? Let's add some things then.
1. Armor and attack speed aura for teammates.
2. AOE Slow
3. Percentage armor reduction.
4. Percent health damage on auto-attacks.

Irelia is probably easier to use, but I would say that Jarvan brings more to team fights. Well, at least in a well-coordinated team he does -- it's extremely easy to use Cataclysm poorly and screw over your own team more than your enemies.

Pure solo top: Irelia wins hands down. Otherwise, I'd go for Jarvan. I've played both and Jarvan is deffs a better team fighter, but I like Irelia's true damage moar

I gotta vote Jarvan, but maybe I'm biased. I have a friend who plays Jarvan solo top quite often and I see him easily take down Irelia nearly every time. Like stated, as well, he brings more to teamfights.
