WORK IN PROGRESS.




Hello everyone, I'm HG White
from EUNE and I love all marksmen + gnar <3. I still learn about league. I'll give you some tips/advices about Gnar. Maybe he is really hard to master, but after seeing this guide you should know what you're doing ^^. I love Gnar, because his playstyle is amazing and he is so cute (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:✧. Also I've made this guide (still working): Jhin, Beatiful One Shot Carry



























Pros

+ Long-range poke
+ Percentage Health damage
+ High mobility
+ Epic initiations
+ Good late game
+ Many crowd control effects
+ No mana
Gnar is a good option to carry mid/late game. He's got many ways to escape, for example Hop on ally minions, or Wallop enemy then Flash. I recommend Sion, Malphite and Jarvan IV in jungle, since V4.16, Gnar's ultimate interacts with Jarvan's ult, therefore he is amazing at a teamfight combo, other 2 options make a good initiation duo, when prepeared.




Cons

- Hard to master
- Poor early game
- Difficult mechanics
- Low-range basics
- You can't control the transformation gauge
- Very long Cooldowns
Gnar can be poked when tring to catch Boomerang Throw (45%-60% cooldown reduction). Gnar's initiate is countered by Flash or escape abilities like Katarina's Shunpo or Corki's Valkyrie.

Mastery Explanations


space


FEROCITY





Tier 1 - Fury - More attack speed.

Tier 2 - Double Edged Sword - Is good mastery after patch 6.12, because you deal 3% bonus damage and receive just 1,5% bonus damage.

Tier 3 - Natural Talent - I had problems when I was taking this mastery. Vampirism is good mastery as Natural Talent . Life steal + Spell Vamp VS Ad + Ap. I think this one you can choose by yourself.

Tier 4 - Oppressor - Oppressor works very well with Frozen Mallet and it's good early/mid game mastery. Bounty Hunter would be better in late game.

Tier 5 - Battering Blows - 7% Armor penetration.

Tier 6 - Fervor of Battle - Gnar has got a lot of attack speed and fervor helps with longer trades. Also it works well with Hyper.

CUNNING





Tier 1 - Recovery - Gnar's early health regen is really bad thats why I prefer Recovery than Unyielding .

Tier 2 - Tough Skin - You don't need bonus 15 movement speed to be fast, but less damage from minions, monsters and basics sounds good.

Tier 3 - Veteran's Scars - I do prefer 50 health, but Runic Armor could be good with healing/shielding champions like Soraka, Sona, Janna, but items like Blade of the Ruined King or Warmog's Armor could be cool too.

Tier 4 - Insight - Some summoners cooldowns. Perseverance is good with mentioned above Runic Armor .

CUNNING





Tier 1 - Savagery - Easier last hitting.

Tier 2 - Assassin - First worth mastery, some bonus damage when poking and fighting 1v1. Second Gnar doesn't need Secret Stash , because he hasn't got mana or Runic Affinity , because noone is giving buffs for topers.

Tier 3 - Merciless - Same as Assassin , but below 40% of enemy's health.

Tier 4 - Dangerous Game - One of my favourite masteries, this mastery saved me many times when I was fighting and I killed him before he killed me.

Tier 5 - Precision - Armor and Magic penetration.

Tier 6 - Thunderlord's Decree - One of the best keystone masteries to poke. Helps a lot with three by three exchanges. Also it works well with Hyper.

This will give you:
  • 4,75 Phisycal Damage
  • 9 Armor
  • 7,5 Cooldown
  • 20,3 Attack Speed

About Runes:









FLASH

For better positioning in teamfights. When you are becoming Mega Gnar use Hop and bounce on your teammate or minion then use ultimate. Flash is the most prime spell in League of Legends. Everyone takes this spell, cause this is always helpful.


TELEPORT

Teleport in my opinion is essential spell for every toper. It makes you more mobility. For example you are pushing top lane and there is teamfight on bottom. You have no time for walk so you should use teleport and help your teammates.

We want to max out Boomerang Throw because it's our main damage dealer. Then Hyper as it allows you to poke HP tanks. We level up Hop last because it scales damage from HP not from attack damage. More than half players max Q then W and E at last, because it's just good combination Gnar's Skill Order.

Don't try to engage teamfights without Mega Gnar, because it would be harder without bonus ccs.
Early game try to poke and kite - mostly Mini Gnar.
Mid game use your cc and mobility to start and win teamfights - mostly Mega Gnar.
Late game try to balance poke, kite and engage, cc - Mega and Mini Gnar.
