Runes

In terms of runes you have 3 options

The most common and the one I recommend is Fleetfoot Work

-Fleetfootwork Best Graves NA ft. Tarzaned

-Dark Harvest Dark Harvest Challenger video with Tarzaned

-Press The Attack Rank 1 VS Rank 2 Graves Jungle with Press The Attack video ft. Tarzaned

Each of theese keystones have their pros and cons and they can all be your "best option" depending on what your teamp comp needs

Fleetfootwork is good for kiting and sustain

Dark harvest works really well against a squishy team or if you have a scaling team comp

I recommend trying out all 3 options on Graves and see for yourself what you enjoy the most and what you feel like works best for you

Levi Graves Jungle 78% winrate Challenger video

This video can help you understand the mindset of Levi when he is playing Jungle and how he is playing Graves jungle in season 8 and how he got such a high winrate (78% winrate) in challenger and why/how he achieved rank #1 on NA as a jungle main

Levi Graves Jungle 78% winrate season 8 video

If you wanna learn how to graves jungle in s8 from the Rank 1 NA jungle main LEVI, then this video is for you.

In this video, you'll learn 3 jungle tips that Levi uses to achieve a 78% win rate and close out games with graves:

1. How to jungle path

Each game of LoL is different. In order to become the best jungler possible, you need to understand which jungle path is best suited for each situation.

In this game, Levi decides to start red. Even though he doesn't get as good of a leash, this decision is what allows him to snowball and win the game.

2. How to balance ganking + farming

This is a problem many low elo junglers struggle with. If you wanna improve this skill, you have to get good at recognizing gank opportunities that are 100% guaranteed.

In this video, I show you how Levi chooses which lanes to gank that result in a kill/blown summoner spell. Doing this allows levi to stay ahead in farm of Camille while still applying pressure for his laners.

3. How to close out games when you're ahead

Once Levi has secured a lead, his next goal is to take as many objectives as possible.

He does this using what I like to call "The Lawn Mower Method." This method will show you which objectives to take so that you can end the game as soon as possible when you have the lead.

Jungle path

Jungle clear updated after scuttle crab changes

1. Red
2. Krugs
3. Raptors
4. Wolves
5. Scuttle ****
6. Gank or go to blue
7. If gank then reset if blue then clear gromp and then reset

After reset go to Krugs and afterwards raptors

You always wanna go for ganks if they are free over clearing a jungle camp

You can also do the korean jungle path:
1. Red
2. Raptors
3. Krugs
4. Gank

How to clear the jungle as Graves

You can pretty much clear all camps quite easily with graves especially if you have fleetfootwork as your keystone.

Tips:
Always kite the jungle camps

Always auto a jungle camp twice and then e immediatly after your second auto attack to reset your passive and gain an extra auto attack

Always kite towards the next jungle champ

Smite gromp because its ranged and hard to kite

Smite raptors since your autoattack will be blocked by the small ones

Your passive knocks back jungle camps which makes scuttle crab go from having 60 armor and magic recist to only be having 10 armor and magic recist which makes scuttle really easy to kill as Graves

How to gank as Graves

Try to gank laners who has cc since you don´t have any cc in your own kit except W which is little slow.

Try to gank when you have red buff, since red buff provides extra damage and a little slow on auto attacks aswell.

If your laner has no cc try to walk up behind the enemy and start auto attacking, you can start using your w on top of the enemy if needed. Wait with your untill the enemy either uses their dash or flash and then e after them to always be in range to auto attack the enemy

Remember you can always finish your opponent with your R after they used flash
