I just recently played a game against an enemy Graves who had both Youmuu's and Statikk Shiv in his items, he went on to carry his team and absolutely rek. I was just wondering if this kind of build is viable at all on Graves and if it is, is it a good idea?
I would give you an answer, but since I'm probably the one who did this......
If your ahead, go for Infinity and Yommu's. If your behind, go for Bloodthirster and Statikk. Building them both right after the other is extremely risky, and would require a VERY high level of Graves (and marksmen in general) play. I was given the luxury of not only carrying a team, but the game going for an extremely long time, thus giving me the option to build both.
Statikk gives him some much needed wave clear without having to waste mana using his Q. Just use your E, and stack those stacks as quickly as possible. This way, you can save your mana for the fights that matter.
