Runes

Graves rune page:
Fleetfootwork is good with shieldbow graves since shieldbow will give you insane amount of healing and with fleet footwork on top you will get even more healing and slight movement speed buff

Triumph is good since if you kill someone on enemy team you will get hp back to keep yourself alive for even longer (Triumph is really good against burn after damage such as red buff, liandries, demonic embrace, ignite etc.)

Legend Alacrity is good with graves since his main source of damage will come from his auto attacks and with more attack speed you will be able to get more auto attacks off to heal from with your other runes and items

Last Stand is good with graves since you will do more damage to enemies when you are on low hp which is where your shieldbow will ne procced

Eyeball collection Eyeball Collection will give you slight amount of extra AD on kills/assists

Ravenous hunter Ravenous hunter is good on Graves since we already have a lot of healing in our kit so Ravenous Hunter will give us even more healing (In season 11 they changed ravenous hunter, from only giving you healing from abilities to now giving you healing from both abilities and auto attacks)

How to clear the jungle as Graves

You can pretty much clear all camps quite easily with graves as long as you kite them out properly and remember to split up the jungle camp a little bit so your passive auto attack can hit mutiple targets at once

Tips:
Always kite the jungle camps

Always auto a jungle camp once and then e immediately after your first auto attack to gain a stack on your E passive and gain an extra auto attack

Always kite towards the next jungle champ

Smite gromp because its ranged and hard to kite

If you are bad at kiting 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

A super important for graves jungle and his clearing is to stack up his E passive you do this by constantly doing damage this refreshes the current amount of stacks you have on your E passive and you gain another stack by using E it can be stacked up to 8 times

Each stack gives bonus armor

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 until 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

How to play teamfights as Graves

With this build you have a lot of damage and a lot of healing so the only way you can only die is if you get cc´ed and can´t auto attack anyone to heal up.

With this graves build you wanna play kind a like an ADC, in the backline behind your frontline but you still always wanna be in range to auto attack someone.

You wanna try and hit as many ranged champions with your W since if you smokescreen them they will have a really hard time doing damage while in the smokescreen so they will have to run out of the smokescreen first before they will start doing damage again.

You also wanna keep your E stacks up all the time for the extra armor in teamfights.
You do that by constantly auto attacking someone and using your E to get another stack.

You wanna use your ultimate to snipe someone in the enemy backline and blow them up.

You can use your Q on both frontline and backline, just use it on whoever you are in range for to be honest.

And then just kite the enemies around with your E W R and movementspeed from fleet footwork.
