Introduction - The Master Quarterback

Who's Gragas and why is he the best NFL player?

Gragas is a muscular, well-built League of Legends Champion. He was originally an ale maker, but when he was invited to play in the Super Bowl, his life flashed before his eyes. As the New York Giants were about to lose, Gragas stormed into the field, signing up to temporarily play for the Giants. With amazing, graceful reflexes, Gragas drove the Giants to victory in the 2012 Super Bowl. Immediately after winning and emerging victorious, Gragas threw a thumbs up at the Giants team. Shocked, the Giants team's coach ran after Gragas to persuade him to join, but Gragas simply walked away, showing no signs of interest. Thus, this was the birth of Gragas, the Master Quarterback.

Creep Score - Killing Little, Minor Players

Be sure that when you tackle minor players, you should hit as many as possible, since it's a waste if you simply hit one. Also, take a drink of Gatorade ( Drunken Rage) and then throw a football at the minions ( Barrel Roll), and then tackle ( Body Slam) and explode the Gatorade and the same time. This will have:

"Maximum Beeyatch slapping effect"
- Siv HD

P.S: Use your ultimate, Explosive Cask if you want to. It's no Absolute Zero, but it's better than nothing.

Conclusion - Farewell!

Well, thanks for reading my (troll) Gragas guide, "NFL Gragas - Tackling 101". I really appreciate those who (actually) read it and used it in actual normal games. My name's Rokaku on the North America server, so I'm up for troll games if anyone out there would like to.

Thanks to:

lack a boss for playing AD Gragas Top!
madmetalalchemy for using my Tank Gragas section!

I'll see you guys in my next build, perhaps Cooldown Reduction, (troll) build. See yah, peeps!
