Only those with great fortitude and endurance dwell in what is perhaps the most rugged and unforgiving environment anywhere on the face of Runeterra. It is here that the mighty Gragas keeps permanent residence, living south of Noxus. This behemoth of a man has long eschewed the rigors of civilization for what he calls his ''slice of paradise;'' he has no neighbors to bother him and plenty of space to pursue his life's ambition - brewing. Grogs, ales, meads, and wine - nothing is beyond his skill to brew. What makes Gragas a truly special brewmaster, however, is his proximity to a large and powerful nexus. The magic of this nexus has seeped into his fermented creations, and Gragas has consumed enough of his own poison over the years to slake the thirst of an army. This arcane alcohol has caused Gragas to swell both in height and girth; he looms over the tallest of men and boasts nearly twice their width. To complement his immoderate size, Gragas has developed an ornery temper - one fueled by liquor and raw magic. His infrequent sojourns into Noxus for supplies always unfold the same way: Gragas enters a Noxian tavern, Gragas gets into several fights, Gragas lays out countless citizens, and finally Gragas flees for the foothills with Noxian constables in hot - though reluctant - pursuit. His misadventures have garnered him the attention of several summoners in the League of Legends, and he is now a willing champion in the arenas... doling out hard liquor and harder fists. The Rabble Rouser leaves a path of drunken destruction in his wake, both in the Fields of Justice and off.

GRAGAS ------> he may be fat but he is a beast

Welcome to my Gragas guide. In this build gragas is a ap carry, who does many important things for his team. Gragas's poke is the best in the game. Not even Nidalee can match up. His poke is so amazing that its no longer a poke, its actually more of a one arm jab. He can also destroy an enemy team with one ult. If played right gragas can be a great, beastly, fat, drunken, utility to destroy enemy's with. Gragas is an elusive fat man. His body slam also gives him some amazing mobility. With flash gragas can get away from almost any situation.

why do i pick ap gragas instead of tank gragas?

Well look at it this way. With only rod of ages for health, with this build at 18 gragas has around 3610 health. That's amazing! not only is he a freaking amazing ap carry. but he is also pretty tanky. With all this health even if u do get low, just flash and body slam away.



Although gragas is high health u may have to watch out for a heart attack on the field of justice. Corny joke just for u babay.

Runes

These are some common good runes for gragas. its pretty self explanatory. These rune choices are open to any change u think may be good. (Just use common sense, i.e. don't go with armor penetration!!!!)
Back to Top

Masteries

The masteries also have wiggle room. (Gragas's pants do not have wiggle room :D). Other choices may include: 21 0 9, or even just changing Archaic knowledge for burning embers. But keep in mind these masteries are probably the most strong for gragas overall.

Skill Sequence

1. Q
2. W
3. Q
4. E
5. Q
6. R

After that alternate Q and E grabbing Q and R whenever possible. Then finish W in the end.




This sequence involves getting a early drunken rage (W) at lvl 2 for much needed sustain in lane. Some people may argue getting W at lvl 4 which is completely viable. I believe this to be a better choice because 1. Gragas should never be sober :D 2. Doing this will allow u to spam Q more often and more importantly give u that 10% damage reduction buff.
Back to Top

Items <------ look here very important

Okay here's the deal. The point of these items is to get catalyst on second buy. But if this is not possible on second Buy then getting Doran's ring with health pots and ward (if needed) is fine. If u do end up buying some Doran's rings for Gragas's fat, chubby fingers then use those until u can sell them to get something better. Don't worry about buying those because normally they will pay for them selves in lane sustain. u will most likely end up selling them anyway. After buying Rylei's crystal scepter, u may choose to get Zhonya's hourglass instead of morrello's evil tome or void staff. (Once again this build, unlike Gragas's pants, has a ton of wiggle room)
Back to Top

Summoner Spells

1. for summoner spells u may change ignite for a number of different things the first of which is exhaust. Gragas is a very good ganker and exhaust makes a gragas gank almost unbeatable.

2. if you are solo top which i suggest you do grabbing teleport is very useful. It will allow you to immediately get back to your lane which limits creep loss and tower damage.

3. Clarity is less viable. specially with this build where u will most likely get a couple Doran's rings. But if u for some stupid reason still need mana after that then...... GET BLUE BUFF FFS

Summary

Ok thank you for reading my gragas build! he is a very fun and awesome character and is really rewarding to learn. If you have any suggestions for me on this build or future build then plz do so in the comments. I will gladly admit to being wrong and recognize u for helping me in the build. Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
