I ward properly and play like an aggressive support similar to Leona. Jarvan is naturally quite tanky, offers AoE armor pen for your carry, an AoE slow, and an AoE armor/AS buff. His ult offers high burst damage and the terrain creation can be useful if you know the enemy flash/escape is down.

It's not very good mostly because he can't really ult anyone late game without exploding.

Almost everything about Jarv makes him a viable support... besides his passive.

Cool. But what does he offer that Leona support wouldn't do better?

Being fun (this is subjective, but he's one of my favorite champs and I don't like Leona). armor pen. armor/AS aura. terrain creation. AoE knockup.

Jarven's cc isnt reduced by tenacity, if they have a lot of built in tenacity effects on their team (mundo, irelia, singed, trundle, ect.) Your better off with jarven. Its very situational, but he is still none the less viable.

If you'd always have to pick the best champ why play a game with 100 champs?

Games are about fun and variation means fun. And unusual supports can bring a lot of fun and surprise.
