[S12.9] BOMBA Gragas guide by Sloppy Walrus 💣

By SloppyWalrusX
Introduction

I am a Grandmaster 540lp peak Gragas otp with over 5.5 million mastery points. I have been playing Gragas since season 4 and have over 10k Gragas games. I mainly play Gragas mid as a full ap burst assassin but I do not recommend this playstyle to newer players as it is a very high risk playstyle. This is why i'm focusing more on Gragas top and Phase Rush Gragas in this guide, because this is generally speaking alot easier to play and less punishing. Once you feel comfortable with the champion you can try Gragas mid, but it is a very different playstyle compared to Gragas top. Mid is bomba, top is boga.

About Gragas

Gragas is a flexible pick thanks to his presence in 4 total roles. He has very high damage and utility at the same time. His CC and kill potential allow him to take control when ahead. Gragas is great for engaging and disengaging this makes it so that your enemies will always need to keep an eye out or else they will be thrown into your team with a DEADLY💀 Explosive cask. However Gragas requires some knowledge and practice to perform these deadly combos. This is why i highly recommend practicing combos in practice tool, so you will eventually be comfortable to do these in a real game. I will be releasing a combo guide in the near future so keep an eye out on my YouTube channel💣.

Pros and Cons
PROS

+ Build-in good sustain because of
+ Scales extremely well with AP
+ Can Bomba enemy carry out of a fight
+ Good waveclear after a few points in Q
+ Good peel for your carries
+ Good teamfighter
+ Very good gank setup for your jungler
CONS

- Gets countered by mr stack
- Very predictable engage
- Useless if behind early
- Low damage and very high cooldowns early game.
- High risk low reward vs bruisers
- Ultimate has very long travel time
- Combo gets dodged easily by tenacity + any escape.
Laning phase


Gragas is one of the weakest champs early levels, this is because of low damage, high mana costs and very high cooldowns. This is why you should be farming with W because this increases your attack range, gives you damage reduction and procs Passive for very cheap.
Avoid poking too much with Q because this ability costs 80 mana and if you spam it too much you'll be out of mana VERY fast. It is only rly worth to poke with Q if you lasthit a minion with it at the same time. After you got some points in Q and got more mana it is fine to farm and poke with it.



Once you're strong enough (usually after first recall or level 6) you want to push as much as possible to assert pressure on your side of the map. Usually if you get ganked you can run away or outplay it with Phase Rush. Even if you die, just tell yourself it is a good death and it will all be fine 🙏
KDA doesnt matter



Teleport usage depends on your given situation if your wave is slowpushing ->(Example) then you should almost ALWAYS tp back to lane because otherwise you will lose a significant amount of xp and can fall behind from an unrecoverable xp difference.
If the enemy wave is slowpushing towards you->(Example)then you should not tp because the wave will automatically come towards you and you will catch most of the experience even if you just walk.
Usually you want to keep Teleport to help your team win early fights, this could be game changing. So keep Teleport accordingly to what i just explained.



Once you got some points in Q you can really start fighting and playing as aggressive as possible in some situations you want to play safe, but that is very rare. just limit test as much as possible so you attract as much enemies to you. this is also the best way to learn if you're new to the champ.



When you're about to kill someone and want to take them by surprise, you should combo them with Flash so they can't react to it. Here is a good ->Example. You don't always have to do very fancy combos like this, but you just got to make sure it is very hard to react to otherwise you all in and have a risk of them dodging it.
Here is a more basic combo ->example

After laning phase

After laning phase Gragas excels at teamfighting and grouping up.
This is usually around 15 minutes but its different every single game. Around this time you should ALWAYS pick up an Oracle Lens. This is because engaging when enemies have no vision on you is 10x easier and 10x more effective so you should also buy control wards whenever you can

Try to catch someone with a fast E + R + Flash combo -> Example

Other than grouping up you should try to splitpush in sidelane (the lane thats mirroring the next upcoming objective so if dragon is spawning in 1 minute and you have tp up you should splitpush top to get pressure on that side of the map, and when there is a fight at dragon you should tp to that fight)

Tips and tricks

💣You can combo Body Slam + Flash to extend Body Slam range



💣 W and E animation cancel, you can auto attack enemy and use E during the W attack's animation. It will cancel the remaining W animation and let you deal damage faster.



💣 E animation cancel, you can cast Q and R during your E, this will give your opponents less time to react to it



💣 W + E + R + Flash + Q full bomba combo💣



Here is a video of several useful Gragas tips & tricks including some that i mentioned here.💣
