A S4 change:
" Body Slam
Now deals full damage to all enemies hit (rather than splitting it with a minimum damage)."

Yay, finally, AD Gragas is way more consinstant, as the AD ratio no longer disappears if hitting multiple targets. And this also helps top lane Gragas in general.

Yeah and it hurt a little AP Fatman because of the increased CD. Not that much though. CD change helps AD again, because it halves CD when it hits a target.

I'll be testing Bruiser Tubster to see if his E spammage will do any good. Iceborn Gauntlet or Trinity Force? hmhmhmhmhmhmh

Rather Gauntlet, because you are a tanky guy and you wanna CC anyone who gets near you. You could start very offense with offense masteries, runes and a Long Sword and then just build defense with 1 or 2 offensive items later in the game. This way, they will fear your earlygame autos and Body Slam. Sheen would be a good early buy aswell.

The best damage items on him would be Blade of the Ruined King and Phantom Dancer, as they both scale well with the bonus damage of Drunken Rage.

dear god

the builds for gragas mid are the same as gragas top
same reason as why the builds for riven mid = riven top, liss mid = liss top

unholy grail, dcap, zhonya, void, and some other item.
i mean people who play ori still build athene's against ad champs like zed. the mana and cdr are vital.

"bruiser gragas" what the living ****.

and @ ad gragas are you serious

I literally see no reason for anyone to be looking at ad gragas. please do tell me how he would have ANY presence.

I'm sorry, isn't this whole thread all about asking whether or not Gragas top is viable?

And also, judging from your comments you don't seem to be explaining why he's fun lol.

Have you ever played bruiser Gragas? Didn't find it fun? No big deal. I did.

His presence comes from a surprising amount of damage dished out from Drunken Rage+ Body Slam+AA+ Iceborn Gauntlet, his ulti for the displacement, late game Q helps in dueling, high mobility, tankyness, sustain and his crit animation is insane.

A long time ago it was a thing until people realized the potential of his AP scaling.

This.

Maybe the biggest difference is that it's generally a good idea to stack some Doran's Rings early just to become a little beefier, just because the lane is longer and it isn't always as easy to avoid fights with your laning opponent because of that (especially if your enemy has a gap closer). Other than that you should really follow whatever you'd do mid.

If this thread is only about whether AD Gragas is viable top, I'll gladly change my vote to a No.

Thanks to Hoppermh for the signature!
