Introduction



Lets Start


Hello everyone, my name is QuadraDowN (SeFarrMet) and this is my Graves guide. It's hard to make guide as you know so i would appreciate any and all feedback that you can provide. Graves is pretty cool champion. He is tanky marksman and fun too with his combo damage > > and some basic attacks.

I thank you all readers for taking time to read this Good Graves Guide.

Specialy for Graves i get Butcher because he have low Attack Speed and Range for ADC. Next i up Executioner for bonus damage with the combo Quickdraw > Buckshot > Collateral Damage. Next is Frenzy because when i get Infinity Edge Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv to give bonus Attack Speed. We upped the half Offense Tree and now we go in Defense Tree. We up Enchanted Armor for bonus Armor and Magic Resist and Block so the enemy ADC deals less damage with basic attacks to you. Then up Unyielding for more small damage from the enemy. And finally my favorite Braum mastery Juggernaut .

And finally Greater Seal of Armor and Greater Glyph of Magic Resist for bonus Armor and Magic Resist as everyone.

On Graves we first need to up Buckshot for easy lane farming and aditional damage in start levels. Second skill up is Quickdraw to easy avoid ganks or get 40%/50%/60%/70%/80% Attack Speed and fast push towers. And finally we up Smoke Screen to chek bushes when your support isn't warding or distract someone. Collateral Damage is normaly uped on 6/11/16 level.

Champion Description







Graves - Stronk gun
Ranged, Tanky ADC

Teamwork: Very good with Leona Thresh Taric
Going to other Lane: Very good if you can outplay with burst combo
Speciality: More tanky than other ADCs
Description: Graves, the Outlaw. Very strong ADC but sadly he have low mana. If you can save mana for clearing waves or making combo >> will be very good. In start Graves can easily harass with Buckshot because it cost only 60 mana, Graves have 255 mana on level 1. He can avoid ganks if played right, I mean when you see their jungler coming from the river bush, you can use Smoke Screen to slow him or the ADC and then Quickdraw away, or if you think you can kill him just >>> and some basic attacks. Done!

Summoner spells


A: What summoner spells to get? // Flash, Ignite, Heal, Barrier are the best choice for Graves. If you started new account and want to play only Graves (for example), before you turn level 12 you can use Ghost and Heal.
