Threats to Graves with this build
|Amumu||Tanks are your playground. Amumu is a really poor duelist, so you should destroy him. Care if he goes ap, and watch out for his ultimate.|
|Rek'Sai||Just kite her and you will do fine.|
Hello there, welcome to my Graves guide! My name is Qemexy, a lower elo youtuber on the EUNE server. I am currently somewhere in Gold. With over 60% win rate with our non cigar friend up there. I am here to show you a bit of my gameplay and style. To try and help out lower elo players who are just starting and are interested in playing him. Also higher elo players who still hesitate to play him.
I have been playing League for the first two seasons. Then went on a hiatus for almost 3 years, and when i came back a lot changed. But Graves and some of the other junglers i like to play like Nocturne haven't. I instantly fell in love with the pair and made them my mains. But with Graves i feel more comfortable in carrying games and having 200k points with him, has definitely made him my #1 main. I see a lot of mistakes made by people who play Graves. As in they follow just one path set to them. That's mostly the items that they have set for you to play with in game. And not taking something for the situation you are in. There is a lot of text here. So i hope you are ready. I' ll get started now.
So Graves has had a lot of changes, as a marksman he is a lot stronger then before.
His biggest asset is that he has the AOE/KNOCKBACK. Which makes your life in the jungle a lot easier because you can kite pretty much anything.
At the moment he is really good. You can gank very early with him, and make him pretty dominant from the start. Start with your red and you can pretty much 1v1 anyone in the jungle. He is really dominant through the whole game unlike others who have a point in the game where they can't really do anything. While he can be a monster from start till the end.
DEAD. MAN. WALKING.
While he is really dominant, he can be outplayed. That's why he is no longer that good of a laner on the bot side. Because he is outranged by everyone. Also because a minion or an enemy champion even can be a distraction from your real target thanks to that AOE damage.
