Graves Jungle,Top, and Mid

About me
I am a platinum player in the EUW server (TheFakeMrobby), I play mostly Top since that is my main role, but I also off-role jungle and its my 2nd role. graves is a champion I play on mostly on my secondary account (Mrobby) on EUNE, where I actually am higher than my main at the moment, sitting at plat 3 currently, I personally think graves is a good champion in the jungle but can, on some occasion be used as a counter pick Top or Mid.
Introduction to Graves Back to Top
Graves is a weird champ to pick up since he is a ranged fighter/marksmen hybrid, he is classified as a specialist since he is quite a niche champion with lots of different strengths and weaknesses. he is not necessarily hard if you understand how to play him though. but he is definitely rewarding and fun to play if you put time into him.
Pros and Cons Back to Top
    -Easy to clear Jungle on him
    -Strong early and mid game presence
    -Tanky marksmen's hybrid
    -Few Counters

    -Can get outscaled
    -Struggles sometimes against ranged champs
    -Passive AA have short range and can get blocked
Lane Graves Back to Top
First of all, why pick Graves in lane? well he can be a useful counter to assassin champions (zed, talon, etc), can also bully some juggernauts or Divers in the top lane, or be picked as a tanky bot laner (kind of difficult to pull off tho) and he is also not a terrible blind pick since people wont try to counter you when you pick it.

Now if you decided to lane on graves, you will need the right runes, I usually take Dominations runes primary in any lane (Dark harvest or electrocute) with secondary precision and occasionally take Fleet or PTA depending of my needs in the game.

- Dark Harvest: If you need to one shot low health targets.

- Electrocute: If you need reliable burst damage.

- Fleet Footwork: If you need to sustain through poke lanes (Usually build deaths dance with this)

- Press the Attack: If you need to apply a debuff to tanky opponents

Your scaling is good but some champs will be more useful in their roles if it comes to late game, so try to force plays if you get a lead. and if you don't you shouldn't strees about it since you can always win if enemy team throws harder than you did.
