[10.20] CHALLENGER GRAVES GUIDE | AGZER JUNGLE KING

By Agzer
Who is Agzer?
Let me introduce myself.

My name is Agzer, at least i'm mostly known under that name.
I've peaked over 600LPchallenger playing only Graves

I have been playing this game since 2014 and i was semi-pro player.
I played in ESL/FSL for some time and decided to retire because of my toxicity and team problems.
I decided to eloboost/coach and you wonder why?
It's because i just simply feel better helping other people achieve their dreams.

How did i start to play Graves?

I started playing Graves in season 10 because i MISSPICKED.
I found in game that he's really strong champion and that i can do a lot of things with him.
I can flex and adapt all the time and yet i can destroy my enemies.
Graves pros and cons Back to Top
Pros:

- Fast clear , takes small damage, deals tons.
- Strong in 90% of matchups.
- His AA pushes scutle back and scutle takes more dmg (it's like CC)
- Available to invade in 90% of matchups.
- Can 1v2/1v3 with no problem if played properly.

Cons:

- Weak against AP champions due to passive, which only gives you armor (Requries MAW)
- No crowd control against champions.
- Can't do much against peel champions
- Hard to do much damage if it is slowed.
Graves jungle pathing Back to Top
Your pathing should be pretty much almost the same every game, with a little of adaptation through matchups.

I personally always go and ward tribush 0:40 and recall to switch from Warding Totem to Oracle Lens

Default pathing should look like this:

blue buff
gromp
murk wolves
raptors
red buff
krugs

BLUE SIDE:



THIS MAYBE LOOKS COMPLICATED BUT IT'S NOT!
READ CAREFULLY!

1,2,3,4,5,6 are regular buffs and you should do them in this order.

7 stands for the scutle, you can notice that there is 7 on both sides.
This means that sometimes it will not be possible to take bot scutle, so you can instantly rush to top scutle or invade/gank as i drew on the picture.

8 stands for ganks, lanes marked with 8 should be gankable.

9 stands for invade! Those are the spots where you can try to steal a buff or maybe catch your opponnent,
If not a single lane is gankable, proceed to clearing your jungle regulary.

RED SIDE

Ganking as Graves Back to Top
Your ganking should be pretty easy if you have a red buff or finished jungle item.

It's even easier if your laner has at least 1 CC because you can connect your Smoke Screen with crowd control and eliminate your opponennt easier.

WHAT IF YOUR LANER HAS NO CC?

Don't worry, those situations happens often and if you play it properly, you should not worry about results.

Try to appear on the right side, preffered behind the opponennt and always try to cast Smoke Screen in front of him!

Why?

Because he'll either have to change his direction (left or right) and you gain 1 or 2 more seconds to kill him, because he's not running straight line to his tower or he'll just Flash and it's worth it again.
You'll make the gank pretty much easier and with a bit of luck you'll get a kill.

TIP: Always try to stack your E and get 1 extra bullet and extra armor.

What should i do if i can't gank ANY lane?

This happens really often in our games. Don't worry there is solution for that.

Don't spend too much time ganking a 50:50 lane. Time is money, keep farming and prioritize buffs.

If you simply can't gank anyone because your teammates are unable to setup a gank, just keep farming. Farming can win most of your soloQ games.

Here you can find some examples of my farm:



As you can see it's always 9+- per minute , no matter if i am fed or not, i always farm a lot.

REMEMBER TO PRIORITIZE YOUR BUFFS ! KEEP YOUR JUNGLE CLEARED !
Team fights Back to Top
Always try to keep it somewhere in the middle of your team, never too much back or too much front.

Try to be close to your support because most of the time you'll be stronger than you marksman, and support will prolly start to play more around you.

If you are playing lethality high damage build, always try to flank or attack from the side.
With your Flash up and Nimbus Cloak you can easily get in, kill and escape.
1 versus 1 Back to Top
This should not be a PROBLEM with most of the matchups.
You have a great mobility and damage to outperform your enemies.
Try not to use your Quickdraw too early and save it for breakdown moments.
After you finish your Skirmisher's Warrior, you'll win every 1v1.

Late game:

In the late game, you will rarely have opportunity to 1v1 , but when you do have it, play it slowy, don't smash your keyboard with your spells.
A lot of people underestimate Graves damage and sometimes they waste their ultimate for no reason.
Keep in mind that Graves is one of the TOP BASE DAMAGE CHAMPIONS in the game + apply items on that.
