Not Updated For Current Season

Graves is a high-damage caster-based Marksman who is widely known for having the most powerful burst out of all the Marksmen in League of Legends due to his Q-W-R combo, comprised of Buckshot, Smoke Screen and Collateral Damage. His passive, True Grit, also makes him one of the tankiest Marksmen, and his Quick Draw ability allows him to either quickly reposition, chase or escape in team fights. He is short-ranged, however, and could easily fall into ganks if not played correctly.
