    Graves is relatively easy to play and is a top tier ADC at the moment, so he'd be a good buy.

    Jinx is pretty good but she has one big drawback in not having an escape, which can make her more difficult to play compared to others, especially because it's much more punishing when you aren't good at positioning and kiting.

    For a first ADC I'd recommend either Graves because he's easy and an all-rounder with no real weakness or Caitlyn because she's very easy and a strong laner without any counters.

    Ultimately I'd just go with whatever you think will be most fun for you though. There aren't very many ADCs that are just straight up weak.

    alright. how good is jinx right now?

    Yeah, Graves and Caitlyn are pretty good if you want to learn how to play ADC, I'd also pick up Sivir or Tristana as well.

    Vayne, Draven, And Kalista are some of the harder ADCs to play well, but are very strong played right, I'd suggest getting used to Graves, Corki, Jinx, and Caitlyn first, these four give you a variety of playstyles and tools and are all in a strong spot at the moment. Caitlyn is probably the best one to learn on before branching out.

    Come on, no love for Ashe? She's in the tutorial for crying out loud! Used well she can be fantastic as her ice arrows make it easier to lock-down kills, putting a single rank into her bird shot gives her a great vision ability with built-in gold boosting, and with her ult being able to cross the map, assuming you can aim well with it, you can provide great assists while nowhere near the fight.

    Sure, she might not be the best ADC out there, but she's super easy to learn and great for a starting ADC.

    Ok, I used to be an ADC main, with Graves and Jinx.
    Graves is very easy to play; my first ADC I ever played. He has some nice poke with his q, and his passive gives him some extra armor/mr.
    Jinx is a great ADC which I tried out in free week and bought. Her playstile is very fun having 2 different weapons to play with. One drawback is when using your rocket, you have to be cautious about your mana usage. Her W is extremely overpowered in my opinion and opponents just always seem to walk in it. Her E is a snare that you can use to keep them in place while shooting their faces off. However, Jinx does not have any escape methods, such as a dash. This is why you should always take flash with her.

    I'm not a huge fan of varus although I heard hes getting buffed in 5.5. I don't think quinn isn't very good either because her ult is almpost useless because you never want to be in melee range as an adc. Sivir is a good all around pick. Graves or ezreal if you want a more bursty adc. Vayne or tristana if you want a late game hyper carry. If you want op than go caitlyn or DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVEN
