Jarvan has pretty close to the same mana issues as Taric. No, he absolutely does not. He has a slightly lower mana pool, MUCH better base mana regen, and WAY lower costs across the board. In all of those respects, Jarvan's mana management is virtually identical to Leona, who doesn't really have iss...

With Leona, you can try poke her, but she's too tanky and will counter with too much stun/damage combo in total to risk doing it. Leona is only tanky with her W up. You better be poking her.
