Happy Hour In The Jungle :


I used to play with a 12/18/0 rune page but this one is way better to have impact whole game.

- Good mix between dmg, sustain and tankiness.

- (40% CDR with core items)

Gragas has a really nice kit in the jungle :

- Mobility with e
- Aoe dmg
- Sustain with passive
- Lot of CC

Use all those advantages !

Happy Hour In The Jungle : 


Start with E, aoe dmg + cc + better cooldown than Q => My prefered start.

Gragas have HUGE DMG and OP TANKINESS with his W spell. Moreover cooldown on it is really short.

When you gank, load W click AA on the target then E right on him => you can't fail combo and E+W dmg are dealt in the same time. Moreover the target is stunt, so you can't fail Q or R if you hit E.

Q is a good tool for chase, stick to the slowed target AAing her waiting for your W+E cooldown, but never forget that DMG on Gragas are on W+E combo. That's why you need CDR. Endgame :

W cooldown with 30% CDR = 2.8 sec.
W cooldown with 40% CDR = 2.4 sec.

W dmg are nice whole game, they scale with target max HP.

Gragas hit a POWER SPIKE mid game (between 12-15 minutes). When he has 5 points in W and a 3057_32.png his burst makes no sense.  If you hit E on gank, this is 100% kill.

YOU DON'T NEED AP TO DEAL DMG !!!



Happy Hour In The Jungle :


Early Game : 


On firstback rush 3706_32.png + 1052.png if you have enough gold, other way pick 3706_32.png + 1001_32.png.

Complete 1410.png as fast as you can, item stats are really OP, mobility + aoe dmg will give you an easy jungle clear.

Mid Game :


Since we run a 12/0/18 masterie page and scaling MR runes we need 3211_32.png fast for the HP and the MR, build it before to complete 3025_32.png. If you are fed, pick 3057.png to snowball, otherway pick 3024.png for the armor and the CDR. Time to evolve boots. Finish your 3065_32.png.

With this 4 items build, you have NICE DMG, TANKINESS and 40% CDR. 3065_32.png works very well with Gragas passive for an OP sustain (runic armor masterie makes it even more stronger !).

End Game :


3742.png is a most have in most of the games, tanky stats, good HP pool, good mobility with 1410.png Time to choice your last item :

- Lot of Auto Attacker / AD ennemy comp => 3075_32.png or 3143.png

- You need MR, team haven't enough dmg => 3001_32.png

- Team need MR, supp doesn't built it => 3190_32.png

Moreover :

3512.png No splitpusher in team ? Don't underestimate this item ! It brings a lot of pressure and his tanky stats are really good.

3190_32.png i really don't like to build it on Gragas, it's very expensive, but it will help the team, bring you more tankiness and it is the only way to 40% CDR unbuff.

Pick 3047_32.png if there is no heavy/aoe CC in enemy or if there is too many auto attackers (triple AD comp, AD carry mid, etc...)

About 3025_32.png : Yes this item is expensive. Yes most of Gragas are full tank/utility in LCS or Challenger Series...
This guide is more about solo Q, where you can't (only) rely on your mates. You need a power strike, you need some DMG if you want to carry. 3025_32.png is, according to me, the best choice on Gragas jungle, it brings lot of very interesting stats :

- mana pool
- burst on W
- aoe dmg
- CDR
- armor
- perma slow with Gragas kit (even if you miss a q spell...)

Moreover with 6.3 :

- W = aoe dmg
3025.png = aoe dmg
1410.png = aoe dmg

YOU WILL HURT !!!

When Can I Pick Gragas Jungle ? Back to Top

Gragas jungle is a strong pick, he has fast clear and nice mobility, few champ can counter jungle him efficiently. You can pick him in most of games but you should care of bad/good synergy in your team.

Gragas kit is really good AGAINST : 7_64.png 9_64.png 25_64.png 32_64.png 39_64.png 55_64.png 57_64.png 62_64.png 64_64.png 69_64.png 85_64.png 127_64.png 238_64.png

You can break most of dash, cancel or tempo lot of ult. Gragas is really good against no mobility champions.


Gragas kit can be bad with all those champions, for the same obvious reasons. You can **** AOE team mate ult so easily : / When you have bad synergy in team, use your ult as a disengage or in order to protect your carry AD/AP.

Gragas, because of his good mobility, his sustain and his burst, is a good counter jungler.

Jungle Tips Back to Top

A few advice to start : 


- To start a camp : Q + W + E (Q will stack dmg while you W)
- Always press AA on your W target before to combo W+E.
- Make best use of your aoe spells, wait for max Q dmg when you can.
- Make best use of your passive, always have an eye on his cooldown to proc him as much as you can.
- When you have Krugs buff (stun) be carefull when you use E, try to make good stun rotation.
- Use trinket, buy wards, early pink.
- Always Try to know where enemy jungler start.

Early Game + jungle route :


Krugs + Red + Scuttle Crab OR Gromp + Blue + Scuttle Crab

You are lvl 2 with W/E and probably 75%+ HP. In most of the games, the ennemy jungler is doing his second buff.

- Your team is pushing :
=> think to counter jungler if the enemy jungler is weak early.
=> farm your jungle.
=> sneak around, grab vision with trinket, sneak for a counter gank.

- Enemy team is pushing :
=> GANK lvl 2 (check HP/mana of your laner).
=> keep farming and wait for counter gank.
=> sneak around, grab vision with trinket.

When your smite is up, take a camp (wraiths are really good because of oracle). 
Try to gank a lot, Gragas is really strong early, CC + burst should secure kills or burn enemy flash easily.
Ward deep, enemy wraiths is a good spot. If your lanes are pushing try counter jungle if you think you can 1 vs 1 enemy jungler (if you engage on him, W+E+Q you should win most of trades, waiting for cooldowns make best use of the map, bush, wall if you have to escape, etc...)

DRAKE CONTROL :

As a team keep drake warded, as jungler take the scuttle crab as often as you can. Gragas got good drake control, you can solo it pretty fast with W DMG and low cooldowns on spells, passive sustain and passive dmg reduction will help a lot. You can drake after second blue, near 8.00 (before buff timer, back and shop, buy a pink ward or red trinket if you want to drake). 


Keep in mind that, as jungler, you have to gank :
- Early ganks carry lot of games, especially when the enemy jungler don't gank (same thing as 5 vs 4). 
- Jungle is a bad role, if you don't gank and your lanes lose you will get flame 90% of games.
- Enemy jungler will have bad times with his mates if you outgank him.

Make best use of your POWER SPIKE : When you have max point in W and a 3057_32.png your dmg output is huge ! Use your strength !

Be carefull ! Facing an agressive jungler as 35_64.png 254_64.png 107_64.png 20_64.pngor 64_64.png you should start on red or blue buff, get a camp in the other side of the map (wolves if you start red for exemple) and do your other buff (blue on the exemple). 

If you fear a lvl 2 invade but you still want to benefit of Gromp or Krugs buff, do your first camp, use your trinket on red/blue and wait a few sec to start the buff => see what happens. Ward a lot and ask your team to ward jungle entries.





I'm Gragas Jungle, what is my job ? Back to Top

Once the laning/ganking phase is over keep in mind that Gragas Jungle is a TANK and a FRONTLANER. Use his kit as a UTILITY jungler.


You are tanky with your stuff and your W passive + you have sustain with your passive and 3065_32.png. Be there for your team, take poke and enemy skillshots if your carry AD/AP are in trouble or bad positionned.

If nobody can engage in your team, be there to engage. Be carefull with your R, you don't want to put your team in bad situation. I prefer to use W+E+AA combo, with or without flash. Being good with Gragas you W+E---flash---E-+AA combo. Make sure that your team can follow up.

If you haven't to engage, make sure no one can touch your carry AD/AP. Gragas have lot of CC, slow, stun + ult. With 40% CDR, if you hit E, you will be very annoying (reduced cooldown op) and no one should be abble to get close from the one you protect. Always use ult as a disengage.

When enemy team is sieging you, or when you defend a tower, your ult can be very tricky to send your opponent under the tower. If an enemy, especially a carry make a positioning  mistake, be ready to R him to you and insta E him.

Those are general advices, they are many ways to play Gragas depending if you are ahead, your team is ahead or ennemy team is ahead. Make sure to always use all Gragas resources to lead your team to the victory !
