Grater Mark of Desolation- U need tomb of armor penetation (armor is your enemy) – so its optional choice

Greater Seal of Strength- Attack damage is the second thing u really need.
Some people buy Mana regen Seals,but its uesless.-trust me attack damage is optional for you

Greater Glyph of Alacrity-It gives you some nice attack speed,so u will be stronger at low levels

Greater Quintessence of Strength-Its pretty good for Graves,u shold buy Armor Penetratin Quintstoo

Summoner spells :

Flash-Teleports your champion to target nearby location

Very usefull in all periods of game .You can escape or flash to kill low HP enemy.This spell u will really like as Graves.

Exhaust-Exhausts target enemy champion, reducing movement speel by 40%, attack damage dealt by 70% and ability and item damage dealt b 35% for 3 seconds.

Pick this only if you love 1v1 or you go for offensive play style. Use it to save yourself by casting in on the most dangerous enemy or you can save your allies by using it in a team fight on a hard melee carry or AP caster.

Skill Prewiev :

Gunnsliner – Its my passive skill,makes me more survival when i am still in combat,its great to maximize my armor and m.resist before the teamfight starts.

Buckshot (Q) - Graves fires three bullets in a cone,damaging all enemies in the path
This is very nice AoE damage spell,u do lot of damage to multiple targets,with low colldowns,usefull in team fights,so maximize it first to level 5

Smoke Screen (W) – Graves fires a smoke canister at the target area creating a cloud of smoke.Enemies inside the smoke haev reduced sight range and Movement speed.
This is my favourite Graves skill.Make u easy to escape,and your enemies will be blind inside it.Use it in every teamfight,try to cast it on more enemies.
Dont waste it,cauz of long cooldown. :(

Quickdraw (E)
– Graves dashes forward gaining an Attack speed bonus for several seconds. Hitting enemies with basic attacks lowers the cooldown if this skill.
Quickdraw is the second one noce ecsape skill.You got very,very nice attack speed bonus and dashes forward,Isnt it nice skill ? :) use it always u can in teamfights,but too dont waste it,its your escape.

Collateral Damage (R) - Graves fires an exlplosive shell dealing heavy damage to the first champion it hits.After hitting a champion or reaching the end of its range,the shell explodes dealing damage in a cone
Yout ultimate spell is Collatereal Damage.Its skillshot with awesome damage rate,shoot it to enemies in a front to maximize your damage dealt.
Use it in the right moment,because of long cooldown of this spell.

Item build :

Dorans blade
The best item choices with the starting 475 gold is a Doran's Blade, which costs all your starting gold.U shoud too buy second Dorans to make yourself more survival.

The Brutlizer
Its very important to build Brutalizer in early game,give you colldown reduction and armor penetration,VERY IMPORTANT at early game.

Berserk Graves

This boots is good for graves in early game,give u AS bonus,so u can dealt much more damage

Core game

The Bloodthirster
U should buy it the quicklier way,its stacking your attack damage.

Youmoos Ghostblade

Isnt it awesome item? Give you cooldown reduction and DONT FORGET TO ACTIVE IT IN FIGHT.

Trinity force

Makes you more survival,now u slow with each hit.Optional you can buy Phantom Dencer to be better nuker.
Last Whisper
EPIC armor penetration,u will love this item,u can kill enemies tank for 6-7 hits :)
Banshee Veil
Because u will be focused(as i said at the start),u need some defense too.Banshe is otpional,with this passive u can block first negative spell :)
