Graves.

Easiest champ ever.


Guide Top

Runes

Balance of offensive runes, and defensive runes. Awesome for ranked games. Makes you win a lot of trades.


Guide Top

Masteries.

Standard ****.

Item builds.

The first build is for if you're going vs vayne/draven/kogmaw/ashe/varus/tristana/ezreal. This will optimize your early burst, and take advantage of their weak early game. Do not play overly-aggressive though. Don't ever miss cs for an autoattack. If necessary, use your Q to harass, and get last hits.


The second build is if you're going vs sivir/cait/miss fortune/urgot/corki. Pretty safe to say you should use this build as well, if they have a taric support, or a very tanky team in general. This build is more catered to mid-lategame, with dorans to keep you from getting face****ed early, and a vamp so you can sustain yourself enough so you won't have to back often.

Summoner Spells.

For the first build, you should always be taking ignite/flash.

For the second build, you could take heal/flash, or cleanse/flash. If you're vs a team with a lot of cc, get cleanse. If they're just annoying as ****, get heal.


Guide Top

Summary.

Graves is easymode. Go win.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Cs well.
Don't feed.
Go for kills when the opportunity comes.
Never chase for longer than a couple seconds. If you don't have vision of the area, do not chase at all, unless you have your team with you.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

Excellent farmer.
Excellent harasser.
Dash towards, or from enemy.
AOE blind.
Bursty as ****.
Tanky.

Cons:

Low autoattack range. Will cause problems lategame, unless you have a good team who can defend you, or engage well.


Guide Top

Team Work

Never initiate.

Never go in facefirst, unless you're 3v1ing.

Never die.

Get kills.


Guide Top

Farming

Last hitting is pretty simple

Once you get your bf sword, or double dorans you should be able to autoattack the melee creeps twice each, buckshot, and finish off the caster creeps with 1 autoattack each. If you have your level 2 smokescreen, you can just buckshot, and immediately smokescreen, and kill all creeps instantly.

I usually do this to **** up the enemy ad carry's cs. A lot of bad players can't cs under tower. Only do this if you have a decent support who can ward correctly. Around your wraiths, and at dragon.
