Introduction

Hello Everyone reading this guide! My name is Thatice and I am currently diamond 4. My main role is ad carry and I have gotten a lot of success from playing graves. I hope you find this guide helpful and it would be great if you could follow me on twitch at twitch.tv/icedragon9559 .

Farming

Graves is very easy to farm with. Once you have your shiv you should be able to move up close to the wave and auto attack q it this should kill most if not all of the wave.

Skill usage

Graves has a very Aoe based burst kit. Graves q does a lot of his overall damage so be sure to use it constantly in team fights. Graves q does more damage depending on how many of the 3 bullets hit the enemy so your basic burst combo would be to E right next to someone q them then ult, this combo does a massive amount of single target damage and works most the time if you hit both your skill shots. Graves w is a great zoning spell fi you land this on an ap mid or the enemy ad carry then it will hurt them greatly because they won't be able to see anything! Graves e is a very good skill this serves as a attack speed steroid and an escape at the same time, in team fights you want to use graves e to either reposition or to gain attack speed. Finally graves ult is a very heavy damage Aoe, You want to use his ult in a team fight where its impact and splash will hit multiple people.

Pros / Cons

PROS Graves has very good area of effect damage and has a great escape/attack speed steroid.
CONS Graves can get shutdown by armor because he heavily relies on physical damage. Graves has a small range compared to a lot of ad carries.
