Summoner Spells

Back to Top ▲
Smite and Flash - Standard summoner spells for junglers. Sometimes I will need to flash + E if I don't have my ult.

I also take flash because you can steal objectives by using your E to go over walls > smite > flash out
I take this always because the many thing that I could do if I did had flash and I feel that if I don't I wouldn't be able to pull of a lot of game changing plays.

-----------------

If you're not taking smite, why are you in the jungle?!?

-----------------

Smite and Ignite - Gragas already has mobility with his E to go over walls, take ignite if you feel comfortable with losing out on flash and going for easy secured kills when ganking. 

I honestly prefer flash over ignite.

Recommended for Advanced Players who are familiar with Gragas' mobility.

Runes

Armor Seals - Standard seals, you will die in the jungle without these.

AP/Level Glyphs - Optimal quints for fast clear times and overall damage, you will melt jungle creeps fast with your E and Q. 

Flat AP Quints - Optimal quints for fast clear times and overall damage, you will melt jungle creeps fast with your E and Q.

I run 21/9/0 when I play Gragas Jungle. 


I have been experimenting with many different masteries when the Preseason 4 Patch hit live and I found that this is the most optimal mastery page for jungling with Gragas.

If you think there's a better mastery page for jungle Gragas please let me know! I'll try it out :)

When I first started to play jungle gragas in season 3, I started my first skill in Q because I thought it was faster to clear with it then starting with E. 

However, as I learned to use Gragas more I finally realized that starting E is the best.


Why?

- With E you can invade/avoid invades
- You clear a lot faster with E

If you started Q, you will not be able to invade efficiently and if they invaded what are you going to do? Most likely you will not have survived an invade if you started Q over E.

So I max Q > E > W, obviously taking R at 6/11/16

Alright so lets go over the skills:

Q - Your skill to poke and clear jungle creeps, self-explanatory. Use this to poke when contesting a tower/objective. It can also now slow.

W -  Always use this before ganking or teamfights. It basically gives you mana and become empowered with the bonus AD it gives and gives you Magic Resist.

E - THE reason why Jungle Gragas is overpowered and even better than most junglers early,mid and late.
This is what makes his clear time so fast. His (E) is amazing and with the recent patch, his E slows ALL targets on hit when it used to only slow one target.
Not to mention the cooldown on this skill is not bad for what it does.

R - Once you get your ultimate, the enemy team will be crying for you to AFK (as if they didn't already with your overpowered ganks). You will be able to have successful ganks and secure a kill easily. You want to use it to bring the enemy closer to your carries and melt them down or to your tower and then Q > E them for an easy kill. 

Another thing that makes your ultimate amazing is that you can peel/save your team and ult the enemies away. 

NOTE: YOU CAN EITHER MAKE YOUR TEAM LOVE YOU OR HATE YOU
EX:
- Ulting the enemy away when your team would've killed them and losing out on a kill
- Ulting the enemy to one of your teammates when they are low and getting them killed

You will have to get used to his ultimate as it can be difficult to use it efficiently if you have never played Gragas before!

Items

Back to Top ▲
Start With
Core
Situational

Nothing much to say about the starting items, just that you will need this to be able to jungle with Gragas effectively.


Core - Spectral Wraiths 3206_32.png or Golems 3207_32.png?

I take whichever I think is most needed for my team, generally you want to go Spectral Wraiths 3206_32.png if you need the extra damage and sustain.I take Golems 3207_32.png if I need to be more tanky especially during teamfights, also the tenacity it gives makes Gragas an even bigger threat to the enemy team.

3020_32.png - Your goto boots for Gragas, you will be able to melt enemies easily especially if they have low magic resist.

3174_32.png - You will want to get this item first. Most likely you will be giving your blues to your AP carry and with this you will no longer have mana problems. Also the CDR it gives is really good.

3089_32.png - You're an AP Champion, why wouldn't you? With this item you will be doing massive damage and carry the game easily.

3135_32.png - Get this item to do even more damage and if the enemy is building MR because they realize you do a lot of damage.

Situational - 


3001_32.png - If the enemy AP is causing problems for your team/you get this item. Magic Resist and Ability Power is amazing for Gragas.

3157_32.png - If If the enemy AD is causing problems for your team/you get this item. Armor and Ability Power is amazing for Gragas. What else? 2.5 invincibility and your turn gold? YES PLEASE!

3111_32.png - If you are going spectral wraiths and need some tenacity and magic resists, take these. NEVER take these if you have Golems.

3047_32.png - Take these if AD is problematic and you need to be more tanky, regardless if you are taking Golems or Spectral Wraiths.

I've played about 8 or 9 games with this build, super fun jungle with great ganks, I've only had a tough time against jungle and lane Riven--even with body slam, ult, she can still sustain the damage, deal damage and/or run away.

and with the Scuba Gragas skin it's deep sea jungle diving :D

Glad you enjoyed my guide! :)

Yea Riven is a tough champ to go against, she is just way to bothersome even if she isn't that fed.

Just try to poke her down in teamfights if you can before a teamfight starts.

If you can camp top lane knowing that it will not only help your top laner but also set riven behind, do it! :)

I'm waiting to get my hands on Santa Gragas! :) I'm currently using Esq.
Scuba is also a nice skin, but I think I'm going to skip it (I was going to get it the last time the legacy skins came back out, but decided not to).

Have fun with jungle Gragas! :)

A good first guide. I'd like to offer some advice though; the extra 6% bonus AP is not that effective, particularly as Gragas has such good AD ratioing on his E. I much prefer getting some AD in the masteries, as it helps you out so much early. The trouble with the attack speed runes aswell is they really fall off, especially if you are counter jungled.
Don't think I'm hating though, I think it's a really good guide, and does work well.

Nice guide. Won more than I lost with it, there is still a lot of room for improvement on my end there though. However, I can confirm that you get much hate for playin Gragas jungle. Not sure why. I mostly go AP bruiser and get flamed for not picking a tank. But, since Fat Boy Jungle is SO much fun, I just ignore that and keep going. :P

I usually max out Q first because I like the poke more, and then I go W (dmg reduce) and I max out E as last spell,
I am Gold III but I have never played gragas in Rankeds I am just trying him out in normals
so do you think I can go with that playstyle or do I have to max E first?
