1. Introduction / thanks to al MOBAfire posters


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Hi people, after reading and learning a lot from a lot of guides from this site i finally decided to contribute with a guide of my own, first of all i would like to thank all those who posted here and helped me learn to play this game.

I think gragas is one of the best characters out there and the fact that not so much people play him nowadays just shocks me.

This guide is all about harassing your enemies and farming your lane in order to be able to kick ***es in the late game phase.

Well, lets get to it...

2. Why Gragas?

Pros:

    Capable of nuking whole teams
    Great range
    Able to escape (thanks to body slam)
    Able to shatter enemy team formations
    Beefy
    Great HP/MP regeneration rates
    The last 2 make him one of the best laners out there
Cons:
    Kinda slow
    Very vulnerable to CC

3. Mandatory stuff when playing with gragas

The most important thing to do with gragas is to buy the Gragas esq. skin, the ellegance and greatness given by this skin will destroy your opponents on its own.
The second most important thing to do is to type "DO A BARREL ROLL!" on chat anytime you kill someone with or
Thats the basic mandatory stuff when playing gragas, keep this in mind always.

4. Skill Sequence

--> --> -->

Maxing first will make you very dangerous from level 6 on, 1 point in at level 2 will keep your barrels rolling till u level it up again on lvl 8 and that point in at level 4 will help you escape or slow/chase a fleeing enemy.

5. Skill usage


This skill will keep your health bar up during the laning phase, if you are low on health all you have to do is to fall back and use + for a little while and you'll be back to fighting shape in no time!


This skill is simply great. Great range + great damage + Not a long cooldown = Broken ***es from afar and very often, which is nice :) , this skill is great for farming too, a couple of these should kill all the caster creeps in a wave from level 5 on. The downside of this skill is that is very mana intensive early game, so you cant spam it all the time, but you will be able to use this pretty frequently.


This skill gives you enough mana to keep harassing/farming plus a nice damage reduction buff. The keyword here is spam. Spam this whenever u are not in a hurry to get somewhere, its important to let gragas get the whole drink or you will not get the damage reduction buff.


This is your main utility, i think that the usage of body slam is what tells a good gragas from a standard one. Ths skill is useful in order to:

    Escape: Body Slam + ghost = cant touch this.
    Going through walls: which is a great gank / escape mechanism.
    Slowing an enemy: which will make a lot easier to hit the enemy with thos pesky barrels
    C-C-C-Combo Breaker!!! (Explained further below)


This skill does a lot of damage, great rang and scales a lot with AP and its one of the funniest skills to use IMO, it has 4 uses too:
    Shattering enemy formations.
    Helping someone with a gank (dont chase em, make the come to you).
    Harassing / farming due to its low cooldown.
    C-C-C-Combo Breaker!!! (Explained further below)
One of the great things about this skill is that due to its great range + AoE its impossible to dodge when harassing.

6. Runes

Marks:
9x
Glyphs
3x
6x Greater Glyph of Replenishment
Seals
9x Greater Seal of Replenishment
Quints
3x

This will make your barrels hit harder (30MPen when combined with ) amd will keep you rolling barrels thanks to the mana regen. I added a little bit of health too in order to increase survivability.

7. Items

Follow the purchase order above, if you find your *** kicked too often during mid game, get a before you get Rabbadons Deathcap

8.C-C-C-Combo Breaker!

This is the basic Gragas combo, when you can pull this out without flaw you can consider yourself ready to play gragas on ranked games.

First you must throw behind the enemy so they fly towards you, followed by a on their face, a single auto attack and then . This is you basic move, if used correctly on 1vs1 it can take approximately 80% of a squishy's health bar. If your are with your team it will assure insta-rape against the chosen target (or targets if you manage to get 2 of em towards yourself) and get your team in an advantage situation.
