Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
GRAGAS ------> he may be fat but he is a beast
Welcome to my Gragas guide. In this build gragas is a ap carry, who does many important things for his team. Gragas's poke is the best in the game. Not even Nidalee can match up. His poke is so amazing that its no longer a poke, its actually more of a one arm jab. He can also destroy an enemy team with one ult. If played right gragas can be a great, beastly, fat, drunken, utility to destroy enemy's with. Gragas is an elusive fat man. His body slam also gives him some amazing mobility. With flash gragas can get away from almost any situation.
why do i pick ap gragas instead of tank gragas?
Well look at it this way. With only rod of ages for health, with this build at 18 gragas has around 3610 health. That's amazing! not only is he a freaking amazing ap carry. but he is also pretty tanky. With all this health even if u do get low, just flash and body slam away.
Although gragas is high health u may have to watch out for a heart attack on the field of justice. Corny joke just for u babay.
These are some common good runes for gragas. its pretty self explanatory. These rune choices are open to any change u think may be good. (Just use common sense, i.e. don't go with armor penetration!!!!)
The masteries also have wiggle room. (Gragas's pants do not have wiggle room :D). Other choices may include: 21 0 9, or even just changing Archaic knowledge for burning embers. But keep in mind these masteries are probably the most strong for gragas overall.
After that alternate Q and E grabbing Q and R whenever possible. Then finish W in the end.
This sequence involves getting a early drunken rage (W) at lvl 2 for much needed sustain in lane. Some people may argue getting W at lvl 4 which is completely viable. I believe this to be a better choice because 1. Gragas should never be sober :D 2. Doing this will allow u to spam Q more often and more importantly give u that 10% damage reduction buff.
Items <------ look here very important
Okay here's the deal. The point of these items is to get catalyst on second buy. But if this is not possible on second Buy then getting Doran's ring with health pots and ward (if needed) is fine. If u do end up buying some Doran's rings for Gragas's fat, chubby fingers then use those until u can sell them to get something better. Don't worry about buying those because normally they will pay for them selves in lane sustain. u will most likely end up selling them anyway. After buying Rylei's crystal scepter, u may choose to get Zhonya's hourglass instead of morrello's evil tome or void staff. (Once again this build, unlike Gragas's pants, has a ton of wiggle room)
1. for summoner spells u may change ignite for a number of different things the first of which is exhaust. Gragas is a very good ganker and exhaust makes a gragas gank almost unbeatable.
2. if you are solo top which i suggest you do grabbing teleport is very useful. It will allow you to immediately get back to your lane which limits creep loss and tower damage.
3. Clarity is less viable. specially with this build where u will most likely get a couple Doran's rings. But if u for some stupid reason still need mana after that then...... GET BLUE BUFF FFS
Ok thank you for reading my gragas build! he is a very fun and awesome character and is really rewarding to learn. If you have any suggestions for me on this build or future build then plz do so in the comments. I will gladly admit to being wrong and recognize u for helping me in the build. Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
