UPDATED: PATCH 12.18! Ultimate Graves Guide for Season 12

By Coach Myga
A bit about myself
Hey folks, most people reading this guide will have no idea about who I am, or what I do. So I am just going to write a little bit about myself to let everyone know what I am about, and why you this guide might be helpful for you.

My name is Myga, I am a Masters Tier + player for multiple seasons with a primary goal to increase my general game knowledge & to help teach others how to get better. I have been playing since season 5, and reached Masters at the end of Season 6 (Season 7 preseason) Since then I have achieved atleast Masters each season. I have been coaching for the past 2 years, since season 9. I am primarily a Jungle coach, and some of my favourite champions are; Graves, Kha'Zix, Kindred & Ekko. I plan to make corresponding guides for all of these champions as I have the time. I will try my best to keep this guide updated along with clear paths etc. As time goes on I will keep making this more indepth, but if you have any questions that aren't answered already feel free to shoot me a DM on Discord Myga#0002, or come ask me on Stream.

I also run a coaching program to help players get to Diamond quickly & efficiently. You can join below -
Pro's & Con's
- Strong SoloQueue Jungler due to high mobility & pressure that can be created in the early game.
- Fits well into most team comps, very versatile champion & can be flex picked in multiple lanes.
- A high potential to carry every game with good itemization.
- Fun champion with a High Skill Ceiling.
- Good duelist & 1v1 character, wins a lot of duels & has a lot of potential to win unfavourable duels with good mechanics.
- A Jungler that has a good Early game & a good Late game as long as you path efficiently & play well.

- You can't offer your team much CC (Only W, and midgame you can buy Seraldya's).
- You are weak versus high peel comps (Can be good versus enchanters with Serpants Fang).
- Long ranged comps can be very punishing in mid & late game.
- Has a blockable Auto Attack. Tanks can body block your Auto's & this can be a problem in some plays. You also can't Auto through Towers & creeps.
- A unique playstyle that takes some time to get used too.
Jungle Paths
Blue Start:
Blue -> Gromp -> Wolves -> Raptors -> Red -> Krugs
Blue -> Gromp -> Red (Level 3)-> Raptors -> Wolves -> Scuttle Crab. (Reverse Clear)

Red Start:
Red -> Krugs -> Raptors -> Wolve -> Blue -> Gromp
Red -> Raptors -> Gromp (level 3) -> Now can gank lane or Reverse Clear

You should not be full clearing on Graves in the majority of your games. Graves has a very strong early game and has a relatively fast clear. You can utilize these factors to create pressure on Ganks & also to invade. This is a more pro-active way to play the game. I have some full gameplay Youtube Videos on my Youtube channel.
Explaining Summoner Spell Choices
Flash is the best summoner spell in the majority of games. It has a good baseline & is very familiar for most players to use. Flash is good versus high CC & versus team comps where if you get caught out of position you instantly die.

Ignite can give you an edge in some of the hardest match up & also can help versus high healing champions. If you're playing with Nimbus Cloak it also has good utility as it's on a shorter cooldown than Flash.

Exhaust is a very good alternative to Ignite. It offers a similar if not higher about of damage & utility in fights in 1v1s. It can also help if you have high oneshot threats on the enemy team. (Xin Zhao, Rek'Sai, Fizz, Talon & Qiyana) to name a few.

Exhaust also offers utility with the Slow & is a great self peel summoner spell like Flash.

(Exhaust doesn't do damage but it allows you to avoid damage, thus living longer & having more eHP. You can then deal more damage in fights.

Ghost is good versus team comps that have a lot of peel & also have a lot of long ranged slows. Ghost allows you to run down the enemy team. It also has a very low Cooldown. I normally don't recommend Ghost on the Lethality builds as you have a high risk of being one shot. It's better on the bruiser/crit builds.
What to do at certain points in the game
Early Game
You want to try and Jungle as efficiently as possible in terms of (Gold & XP) whilst also trying to utilize your early game & mobility to priority to create pressure. You win a lot of early game Jungle match ups and have the ability to outplay some of the harder ones.

Mid Game
In the Mid game you will hopefully be able to leverage the Gold & XP leads you were able to generate in the Early game. You'll start to look for more opportunities to force skirmishes or gank lanes in the mid game if you are ahead. If you are behind, you want to do your best to stall out the game and generate as much XP & Gold per minute as possible.

Late Game
In the late game you want to play based on your build. If you are playing the Lethality build you can look to make picks & one shot players. You can also try and approach team fights from Behind (Flanking), or from the side of a Skirmish.

In the late game if you're playing the bruiser builsd. You can play front to back or approach via the side on a fight. You want to make sure you have started stacking up your Grit stacks before heading in.

These are very specific. You need to assess every game & each team comp to figure out what the actual best play is. If you struggle doing this, you can watch other high elo players, look into coaching or watch your VODs to see what you did wrong. You can then correct that in the future.

I have a coaching program below that a lot of players would improve from utilizing.
