Chapter 1

Hey guys, this is my first build and I just wanted it to be a quick guide for items really to give people an idea on what to buy. Whenever I play this build it's almost a guaranteed win with Graves.

Pros:
- Excellent Farmer
- So much damage
- Great Carry
- Unstoppable in lane

Cons:
- Gets Focused
- No cc
- Vulnerable to cc
- Lacks mobility

Runes:
Armor Penetration: Graves builds AD so well that having these runes will allow him to do damage when the build armor.

Attack Speed: Goes well with Graves.

Cooldown Reduction: Great to spam his q and e.

Items:
With his items I don't always get two dorans blades, it really depends on how I'm going early. Graves does so much damage early that you can even wait to get the first B.F sword. The Bloodthirster is always my first major damage item as it give me great sustainability in lane and combined with Graves ability to farm you really get the most out of if. The black cleaver gives him attack speed and attack damage, plus the passive works well with Graves too. Zeal for the attack speed, movement speed and crit. The late game items are situational but the I.E, P.D and Banshees work well with Graves.

Summoner Spells:
I run Flash and Exhaust so i can put the hurt on champions early with exhaust and escape from fights and sticky situations with flash. Exhaust can also be used to get away wihch is why i choose it over ignite.

Other options: Ignite, Ghost, and if they have hard cc cleanse isn't too bad.
