My name is Rasmus, I'm 20 years old, I'm born and raised in Denmark and I'm a professional League of Legends player/coach
I've been playing League of Legends for about 9 years, started back in Season 1 and got to high elo in season 3, peaking challenger for the first time in season 4, and been challenger ever since.
In season 8 i peaked Rank 13 on EUW with 922 lp, and in S9 i have peaked 1190 LP RANK 1

I'm streaming on twitch.tv/stylleelol where I'm trying to help others by showing my gameplay and explaining why i do things and so on. ( Come by and say hi! :))

In this guide I'm gonna explain how i play Graves, at the highest level on the soloq ladder (Challenger)

Runes

Fleet Footwork?

Fleet Footwork is the best rune to build on graves atm. You gain a faster jungle clear, you can kite easier and you stay way more healthy. Also really good with the type of items you buy, as the extra mobility you gain from runes+items works good on graves.

Jungle Pathing

There is some different pathings you can do, depending on what your wincondtion is, and how you wanna achieve it. Normally you want to gank when you are lvl 3 and you have your red buff up, as you are at your strongest point. Start on blue - wolves - raptors - red if you want to gank the side where you are ending on, else start on red - golems - raptors - blue and gank the other side.

Can also go for cheesy lvl 3 ganks, where you start red - rapors - golems and gank the lane closest to you, as people normally dont respect to get ganked that early

How to look for a gank

Looking for a gank can be quite tricky as Graves, since you dont have any CC.
Whenever you want to gank a lane you have to take in mind a few things: Do your lane have any CC, is enemy pushing or being pushed in, if he's pushing you should try to make a creative way of getting to him.
Taking those things in mind, you should also take in mind where the enemy jungler is, as a jungler your main priority should be tracking the enemy jungler at all times if possible.
If you know where enemy jungler is, you can also put up a counter gang which in most cases will win you the 2v2s/3v3s
