Summoner Spells Back to Top

GravesSummonerssmall.jpg


4.png & 7.png are going to be your go to summoner spells, Their is no need to replace 4.png what so ever and Heal is amazing. Both these spells go hand and hand in finishing off a kill and gank escape potential

Their are those still who like to go back to early seasons and take 21.png but that comes down to your preference. The shield offer protection but not true health as 7.png does and not to mention the movement speed as well.

1.png though is a amazing spell to be taken when the enemy team is just stacking up their CC. The enemy team has 2 roots, a snare , and a AoE Stun; This is when you go with 1.png because as Adc your useless to your team if you die due to CC Lock Downs.

Before anyone comments on my taking of W at level 3, I understand it has been the common to want the extra damage and take W at 4 but I find that Utility from W can and has been the difference between winning a fight in bot more often then not and not to mention extremely helpful in preventing a early gank from the enemy jungler. You can still choice to take a second point in Q at 3 if you like, I do in certain lane match-ups but that's because I know I will need that damage to secure the kill we will be going for soon.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is the go to start for all Adcs at the moment, offers good dmg, sustain and a pot to help you stay in lane.
    You want to remain in lane until you are able to buy a BF Sword if possible

Core Items

    ER - Boots - ATK SPD ITEM - Berskers strong start on nearly all ad's rn but the atk spd item comes down to whether your ahead, you need to waveclear/caught up in cs or looking to pick up some 1v1 kills.
    Lets go over your Armor pen choices, and these comes down to either the enemy is heavy on hp with a mix of armor or just stacking armor
    Read Notes for a better breakdown of your defensive choies
    This one look at a Final Build :D although with the new items the final look is really upon you and what item best suits you for each game.
    The chose comes down your preference although blue trinket is amazing fight now, it shows an area without face checking but don't be afraid to abuse of this in your own jungle or bush's least used as the wards don't time out can offer you amazing vision.
    LifeSteal Choices
    Look at a full build in which you can't afford to miss out on any damage and you need to remove those pesky tanks.
    Sample Build if you just can't seem to survive the enemies entire ap team but still need some strong damage.

Situational Items

    "Wait What Frozen Mallet?" Yes this item can be your life saver in certain situations, such as a extremely fed trydamere who gets though your lane easily. Mallet will help you completely kit him until his ulti turns off and then join back with your team to finish the fight.
Items are still being greatly changed and updated, for now follow item details above and once S6 begins and items settle I will have all that juicy in-depth info.

(Better then doing heavy reading that won'y matter 2 you after next patch ;P)

VS

Ashe

Easy

Ashe has the potential to spam and land a few volleys on you but that's only if you let her. Avoid that unneeded dmg and the lanes all yours, a Q pointblank is going to put ashe 100-0 real quick. Shes to squishy to let pass up a kill in lane on her

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Cait lane is a little weird in my option, she has this extra range which can become a problem in lane but don't forget if she overextends to go for some harass you can easily AA then Q and win the trade or even go for an early kill in lane as Cait isn't going to have to burst you offer. Although always beware of a late game cait criting behind her tanks.

VS

Corki

Medium

Corki has just about the same if not a bit more burst then you do, it depends on how many Q's u land on him in a fight, but truly you can go ahead and avoid the fight wait for a gank as you will out scale him and in my option Graves will have a larger dps then corki in the mid game fights .

VS

Draven

Medium

A strange lane opponent as you both benefit from being lane bullys in your own ways but this comes down to a skill match up in the early lane but graves should have the upper hand once you complete your first core item

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Graves can complete delete an ezreal with your burst, but do watch out when using your Q or R to try and finish him off as his e offers perfect escape from the range of the spells. As for laning wise you truly just stack up your passive and begin to trade he will either back off, be forced back from your harass or be zoned from his cs.

VS

Jinx

Medium

Jinx is interesting as to me Jinx is one of the strongest adc because of her ability to pick up kills so easily, AoE Autos your gonna pick up some kills other adc's wouldn't have been able to as well as that rocket. But enough of that in lane she will try to poke you dodge her W's and if she rocket forms move from the wave of minions as to not allow her to poke you and get some cs. You can beat her in early fight use ur dash to avoid traps or W and land a close range Q and that's all she wrote.

VS

Kalista

Easy

Get this is champions face and blow her up, Kalista is going to try and get stacks on you and kite early on you have 2 choices one, avoid her harass farm and look for an opening or when she choices to risk her self to get close enough to auto drop a Point blank Q or go with the simple AA into Q trade.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Not played as much as previous seasons but if one appears get that early kill in the lane but be aware of his passive. Kog will try to poke you but once his spell goes on CD don't be afraid to look to poke him out of lane or going for a kill

VS

Lucian

Medium

Lucian has strong poke potential but truly with your passive you can neglect a good chunk of it and early on a strong Q to Lucian really rocks his world. Into the late game if you find your self wanting to 1v1 lucian don't beat around the bush as he can get a kill on you if you let him land a few autos or a Q before you try to fight, Just get in their and blow him up.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

Mf has become slightly stronger and can become semi annoying in lane with a good duo/ just a good support but in a truly even match up graves can still keep his presence in lane and win it due to his passive and smart choices of avoiding her Q bounce xtra dmg.

VS

Quinn

Easy

Shouldn't be seen much but simply avoid her blind and if she choices to try any form of enage you can out dmg her but be aware of his strange kiting abilities.

VS

Sivir

Hard

Sivir is "Technically" your true counter and that she is in a way. Don't give her free mana by spamming Q when you know shes baiting it for her spellshield, if you find your self in a fight; try your best to look for the early Quick Q or save it for the spellshield to drop. She is your hardest lane opponent but if you play it smart and look for openings for kills on her or outside of lane you should be fine.

VS

Tristana

Medium

Tristana similir to cait she will have that range but not truly early on, go ahead and find small trades and if she makes the biggest mistake that a trist can make pick up a kill. The mistake being a trist who thinks she's won a fight and hops onto the enemy carry, she puts herself right on you Land that triple Q and finish her off. Avoid allowing her to stack heir explosive casket on you.

VS

Twitch

Easy

A Squishy rat is no match for "A MAN AND HIS SHOTGUN", all jokes aside avoid mistakes by his baits of using his Q to escape. aside from the oblivious, twitch is an easy lane opponent and I would encourage you to look for any chances to blow him up.

VS

Varus

Easy

A Strange champion to see as of lately but its possible, go ahead and watch for any unneeded harass from his longer range, don't be afraid to dodge his Q with your Dash as your Dash cost less mana then his Q and Varus Q really starts to stack up some DMG. Pre 6 ig you avoid his Q, should be a even to easy lane and lvl 6 you truly just need to blow him up quickly or be able to dodge his ulti.

VS

Vayne

Easy

Similar to ezreal although she can become a nightmare late game but still even then you can 1v1 her. Although don't let her reach her peak abuse of her in lane, avoid allowing her to land 3 autos on you to proc silver bolts and at lvl 6 you can completely 100 to 0 her.

Pros & Cons Back to Top

GravesProAndConBannerSmall.jpg

Pros
  • Graves has a pretty smooth auto attack animation
  • Strong Burst (Don't Be Afraid to go ahead and blow up them squishy's)
  • LvL 6 is extremely strong (matched with a strong engage support such as Leo,Annie; You can pick up some kills)
  • Good farming under tower 
  • Descent wave clear 
  • E and W both very good when trying to avoid a gank ( a fog, slow, and a dash)
  • Strong lvl 2-3 (good early lane fights)
  • amazing passive to avoid dmg from poke in lane if you keep it stacked

Cons
  • Shorter Range (Vulnerable to being bullied by a longer range adc such as cait)
  • Shorter Range (Siege is a bit weaker then Caits,Jinx, etc.)
  • His Steroid Is also his escape
  • Spells require to be in a closer range of enemy
  • Minimal aim problems with ulti
  • Auto's are limited to 2 before reloading 3 if E is used "Use your bullets wisely"
When The Pros Strongly Out Weight The Cons Like This, Thats The Reason Graves Is A High Priority Pick

Beginners Guide To CS Back to Top

PoroGravesBannerSmall.jpg

Before anyone comments about the length or the content, this Video is truly MEANT for those who don't understand what Csing is. I look forward to making videos on how to cs in lane, which will include such things as trading, and when to go for cs and when not to.

I'm a active streamer on Twitch , come and stop by if you ever want to watch some Adc GamePlay. I am Currently Diamond, I hope to reach a higher lvl of gameplay to join a professional team but for now I will rank, make guides, videos and help others raise as I have.
