Summoner Spells Back to Top

I don't like Teleport that much anymore. It is overnerfed and sometimes impractical. For myself, i am an aggressive player and i sometimes want to cheese level 2. But for other players, the options are limitless.

VS

Darius

Medium

You kite him. Just don't let him get close.


VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Get an early Executioner's Calling and dodge his skillshots.

VS

Ekko

Hard

Ekko is interesting. He can get close quickly and you need good wits and reaction times to outsmart him.

VS

Fiora

Easy

Start E to dodge her Q, she is squishy pre-6, shut her down until then.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

All he wants to do is farm to late game. Deny him, dodge his barrels and signal your teammates for his ult.

VS

Garen

Medium

A more toned down Darius. He is a little harder to kite.

VS

Gnar

Hard

Focus him in short bursts. Prolonged fights are not an option.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Another version of Darius. Also, move.

VS

Irelia

Medium

Irelia wants to deny your early game glory. Short bursts should suffice.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Your worst nightmare, he is an absolute douche. He pokes you and disengages easily.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Dodge his skillshots and avoid his stun.

VS

Kled

Easy

You are Kled's true counter. He does nothing to you.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Graves is one of the few who can handle Lee Sin. Dodge his skillshots and burst him down.

VS

Malphite

Easy

Malphite is only good for one thing, initiating. Other than that, you own him.

VS

Maokai

Medium

He will try to get close most of the times. But you thrive on being close. Just don't prolong the fight with him.

VS

Nasus

Easy

A lot like Gangplank. Shut him down early.

VS

Olaf

Easy

Dodge his skillshots and get an early Executioner's Calling.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

The nightmare of a lot of Top laners. Take the fight with him on short bursts.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Kite her and DO NOT stand near walls.

VS

Rammus

Hard

If you kite him, you will kill yourself faster than you can kill him.

Ability Combos Back to Top

These combos determine a skilled Graves player. 

1. Auto - E - Auto. An essential combo. Since E now resets the autoattack timer, this combo allows you to dish out two quick autoattacks and also keep a spare bullet. 

2. Q - E. Dashing as soon as the Q animation ends. Perfect for dodging skillshots and also punishing opponents. 

3. Auto - R - E. This combo allows you to buffer the R animation, allowing you to dash forward while throwing the projectile, not getting knocked back. Use this to ensure you kill your opponent. This combo is fairly tricky, and it needs practice to successfully pull off.

4. Auto - E - Auto - Q - Auto - R. Assassination combo 1. This utilizes the first combo that allows us to throw out 3 autoattacks without reloading. Best performed near a wall and when the enemy burned his escapes and Flash.

5. Auto - E - R - Q - Auto. Assassination combo 2. The R buffer is a perfect way to set up a finisher, which is very potent.
