Choose Champion Build:
My second build is that one I normally use when I see, that the enemies cant do anything against me so instead of going tanky I get very high AD carry stats. I buy the same items like in my first build because they're the best items to make me strong at early game anyway. I continue with Armor penetration items and with Ghostblade which make me very strong in teamfights, but if you notice that the enemies deal too much damage to you you should try to buy the items from the first build
-High nuking damage --> effective at 1v1, ganks and when getting ambushed
-Able to jungle and lane at the same time
-Has a spell to make distance between the enemy and himself
-Can reduce the effectivity of enemy carries by blinding them with Smoke Screen so they will lose some seconds to get out and wont be able to aim at the moment
-Pure AD Graves gets killed easy if the enemies focus and nuke him
-Quickdraw is not an escape spell because it has a very short distance
-When getting exhausted you should just launch your Buckshot and Collateral Damage into the enemies and then get away by using Quickdraw
-Getting useless if stunned/silenced for 3 seconds or more
-No chance against champions like trynda and yi at end game if not exhausting them
If you are in such a teamfight where your team's and the enemy team's damage are equal, use your quickdraw asap to grant more attack speed, because otherwise you may lose the teamfight just because of this mistake.
