Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
- SUMMONER ABILITIES -
Teleport: Gragus is a lane pusher, a harasser, and a damn good team fighter; let's make sure you are in EVERY team fight with Teleport!
Clarity: As much as people say, "YOU SHOULD NEVER RUN OUT OF MANA WITH GRAGUS!", you will run out of mana if you are harassing, getting kills, and throwing your barrels as soon as that cooldown is cooled.
- SKILL SEQUENCE -
The main reason for focusing Barrel Roll and Drunken Rage is the fact that you should be in YOUR OWN LANE rocking Minions and Champions for money! If you can use your barrels properly and your ability to last hit minions with your rage, Body Slam is unnecessary, till late(r) game!
- RUNE BUILD -
9x: +0.95 Magic Penetration
9x: +0.41 Mana Regeneration / 5 Seconds
9x: -0.65% Cooldown Time
Magic Penetration = +8.55
This will allow your barrels to go straight through your enemies, without hesitation.
Mana Regeneration = +3.69 / 5 seconds
This will allow you to gain mana faster, so that you will NEVER let that enemy champion farm your minions.
Cooldown Time Reduction = -5.85%
This will allow your Barrel Roll to come back a hell of a lot faster, and your Drunken Rage to replenish a hell of a lot sooner.
- ITEM SEQUENCE -
>>> = The item will turn into a later item in your build!
Amplifying Tome >>>
Boots of Speed >>>
Tear of the Goddess >>>
Warden's Mail >>>
Heart of Gold >>>
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
This item build is carefully designed to incorporate a perfect balance of Ability Power, Health Regeneration, and Armor.
:: WARNING ::
If you don't get Ability Power Stacks with Mejai's Soulstealer, your ability power will not be up to par! Regardless as to which lane you are in, you should always be able to have a passive 10-15 Stacks!
STAY IN TEAM FIGHTS!
I hope this build will allow you to finally start buying and using Gragus, for he truly is the best harassing Champion in the game!
In my opinion, the BEST CHAMPION in the game!
