Boom Boom Graves OP.

Graves is a champion that you want on your team. With his high close range burst damage, and great W ability, you want him in team fights. This guide will show you how to play Graves, and how to have high success like I have been having.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

PROS
- Very high close range burst damage with Q and R
- W makes for great escapes and chases
- Great at pushing lanes and towers

CONS
- WAY TOO slow early game!
- really squishy
- Focused ALOT in Team fights
- Usually Banned in Ranked :/

Skill Sequence

The skill sequence is very obvious for any AD Carry, max out your damage skill first, then any utility skill, and the other one last.

So for this build, I make out Q, then E, and finally W. (Obviously getting R whenever needed.)

QEQWQRQEQEREWERWW ;)

Items

My build consists of high damage, crit, attack speed, movement speed, and slow. (The 5 essentials of a AD Carry)

The last Phantom Dancer will be built after selling your Dorans Blade.

If the enemy team has high armor (Cause your wrekking to hard ;)) Build a LAST WHISPER instead of another Phantom Dancer.


Guide Top

Early Game (Harress/Farming)

To harress with Graves, the best skill combo is to use your Dash (E) to get as close as possible to your enemy, then use your Q. This combo will do insane burst damage early game and late game. If you think you can get the kill, you can also add in a quick Ulti for the finishing blow.

Farming is pretty obvious, you just auto-attack to get as many last hits as possible. You can also use your Q when there is a large clump of minions to usually take most of them out.


Guide Top

Mid Game (Team Fights)

In team fights, you want to W as many people on their team as you can at once, this will stop them from being able to counter attack for a few seconds, while also slowing their escape. Then, use your E to get in close, then Q and R to get the full damage going to the large group of enemies. Once that is done it should be a successful team fight for your team.

PRO TIP - Get your Bloodthirster stacked! Trust me, it will bite you in the *** if you don't. ;)


Guide Top

Late Game (Baron/Team Fights/Final Pushes)

You want to be the main person attacking the tower. Why? Because you have the most damage, and late game, with two Phantom Dancers and your E, your attack speed you be at 2.5. You will obliterate the tower and hopefully win your team the game.
