Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.pngFlash on Gragas is a must! The combo potential with Flash hugely outweighs the usage of all other abilities.

12.pngTP on Gragas over ignite! If you're playing Tank Gragas as a top then you always want TP. This is because the utility you possess in your kit, whilst being very tanky will provide great ganks for your botlane. Also with 14.pngignite and this style in particular, you dont have a huge kill potential against many of the meta top laners 1v1, so it's best to focus on helping in fights,and/or splitpushing safely whilst looking for a helpful TP. That being said, you do have a lot of kill potential (compared to most champs) when receiving a gank and the ignite will go to further confirming the kill. However once more you don't snowball aswell with this build and 12.pngTP is a must to win teamfights and objectives and help snowball other lanes thus being a hugely effective part of winning the game for your team :).

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Remember this is Top Tank Gragas for carrying the game by helping your carries! Not Mid Grag!

Grasp of the Undying: Take this and sustain forever in lane, whilst picking good fights with your 12.pngTP and winning the game! Late game this will steal 100 life from a 4k health champ. nurfed from 3% steal to 2.5% steal... It's still good!

Legendary guardian or Swiftness... You can put 5 points in Swiftness instead if the enemy team has tones of CC.

Laning; Take E first VS meele champs 54.png57.png78.png245.png. Take Q first VS ranged champs 104.png10.png13.png133.png150.png
If you are against a ranged match up (it won't be much fun for you) then take your Q first (to farm without getting super harrased) and your W second (to take less dmg whilst getting harrased)


Level one fights dmg output; tested on a champ at lvl 1 with 608 health and 9x armor yellows and 9x MR blues. (also had a small amount of armor,MR and health with Masteries)

gragasbarrelroll.pngQ: 64 dmg(damage) without an aa(auto attack)  95 dmg with empowered 'Q'.
gragasdrunkenrage.pngW: 99 dmg - keep in mind that the 'W' is cast with an aa.
gragasbodyslam.pngE: 111 dmg - this is with an aa directly after the 'E' lands.
You could take into account many scenarios (such as the range,Mana cost, the likely hood of landing the spell and the CDs) but i would rank 'E' as the best to start vs meeles. Remember if the enemy is hiding behind minions you can just simply walk upto him, (even if he is standing on a minion), and then use your E+aa.


When you are full build with 40% CDR(cooldown reduction)
gragasbarrelroll.pngQ 4.2 seconds
gragasdrunkenrage.pngW 2.4 seconds
gragasbodyslam.pngE 7.2 seconds
gragasexplosivecask.pngR 48 seconds
So much utility in his kit with these CDs!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start.
    Can get this 1st back if you need the sustain. good if you're getting harrassed alot. can also pop one everytime you trade for some nice effect dmg.
    Always buy these. even if you have one already on the map, if you anticipate the enemy killing your ward, buy another!!
    Don't get caught split pushing!
    Worth it, can buy first back, if you've got some extra gold and your team is doing well.

Core Items

    This will give you 40% CDR. Try to make sure whatever you make, that you reach 40% by the time you are full build!
    If your items look like this at some point, its actually pretty good if your doing well. this way you can easily choose which item to finish first depending on how and which champs are doing well on the enemy team
    I love this item (sheen), gives you alot of dmg with your combos and 10% CDR for only 1050! the iceborn gives 20% CDR :P and decent on hit effect.
    If you are against a malphite say, you can get a specre's cowl first then go into building for their team... The spirit visage is also nice with your kit's passive as it increases its healing.
    bami's is great because it helps proc your grasp of the undying :P. a must get!
    You can complete these first item! as they reduce your flash and TP CD's aswell as a nice 10% CDR for your kit.
    A giants belt is a nice item to be walking around with mid game and can be built into either Rylai's, Deadman's or Randuin's. The Randuin's Omen is good if your getting hit with aa's. it also gives 10% crit reduction and has a decent active!
    Rylai's give some decent health and some nice AP. This item will help you stick to champs with it's slows!
    Remember to buy these!
    fastest way to 40% CDR

Situational Items

    Good if they have maybe 3 ap champs and if you need some extra dmg.
    good item if you're getting hit with many aa's and if they don't have much or any lifesteal
    Mejai's is a good item if the enemy team cant kill you. you can buy the first part for just 350 gold!
    Decent item since you don't usually get boots of swiftness.

Remember to get 40% CDR from your final build and to build towards the enemy team and not to far towards your lane!

Keep in mind that Gragas and the way we will build him here is very strong the further the game goes on until final build, so even though you may find it hard to secure kills without jungle help, you can make some nice TP12.png plays and mid to late you are a monster and pretty decent early aswell since it's easy to at least survive the laning phase.

Cassiopeia

Medium

Dont take her harrass, farm with your Qgragasbarrelroll.png
once you have your Spectres3211.png and your sheen3057.png you can kill her easily.

VS

Darius

Medium

Don't eat his Qdariuscleave.png early on. just safe farm.
He is weak vs ganks but strong 1v1! so ask for jungler!
whatever you do, don't give him kills early, if you are low and your jungler is ganking for you then ping him away because he will 2v1.
wait till you have some armor, mid and late with no kills he is useless.

VS

Ekko

Medium

VS

Fiora

Medium

lvl 1 she will Q fioraq.png+ aa back onto you if you Egragasbodyslam.png aa her, so wait till 3 before you start trading.
if you wanna trade ( Egragasbodyslam.png + aa), then place a barrelgragasbarrelroll.png where she will Qfioraq.png back onto you after you've combo'd her.

Leave barrelsgragasbarrelroll.png on your minions to prevent her from CS'ing.

VS

Garen

Easy

you can outrade him, go for a sheen first 3057.png and you can kill him at 6.

VS

Gnar

Hard

He can zone you hard! Don't let him freeze infront of his tower or you will never farm.

he is pretty squishy though, if you use the bushes well you can chunk him with 3057.png and some armor.

you will outscale him though so just survive!

VS

Irelia

Medium

I main Irelia, and honestly have'nt played VS a Grag top for so long, but she can't really kill you and you can't really kill her!
she has good 2v1 potential under her tower so care going deep!
interup her Qireliagatotsu.png with your Egragasbodyslam.png
Don't trade when she has her W ireliahitenstyle.png on! bait it , then go in when it's on CD!

VS

Kayle

Medium

try to farm what you can.
get a 3211.pngspectres cowl then she won't be able to kill you.
If you wanna try kill tehn you'll need a sheen 3057.png.

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

get a little tanky first and he can never kill you!
get 3057.png and you can kill him.

VS

Easy

He might not be able to kill you but it's pretty hard to kill him too!
you can dodge his Rufslash.png with your Egragasbodyslam.png
you can buy a spectre's cowl3211.png first and then finish your iceborn3025.png.

VS

Maokai

Medium

you beat him lvl 1gragasbodyslam.png you beat him lvl 2gragasdrunkenrage.png then it gets a little harder.
build a 3211.png first.
Look to make plays bot.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Deny him farm with your Q'sgragasbarrelroll.png

He can't kill you without gank. and even then, as long as you have your ULTgragasexplosivecask.png up they should'nt be able to kill you.

even if you can't kill him you will be super good late game!

Combos. Back to Top

'W'gragasdrunkenrage.png 'E'gragasbodyslam.png combo- very standard, you should be using 'w' whenever you're going to 'E'

Roll a barrelgragasbarrelroll.png just behind them, then 'E'gragasbodyslam.png into them knocking them back into your empowered 'Q'

Place a barrelgragasbarrelroll.png then 'R' gragasexplosivecask.png them into your empowered 'Q'

'E'gragasbodyslam.png - Flash4.png, if you use your E first then just after flash, you can knock up groups of champs, as the effect hits where the flash lands 

More matchups to come!


Guys I highly suggest watching a replay or two of 'isatorius'. He is in my opinion the best Gragas Top Laner (at least in EUW) and one of the best top laners in EUW. His main is ranked around top 10 challenger EUW.
