General information

graves Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

New Destiny

P

Graves's shotgun carries up to 2 shells. After he fires both shells or has 1 bullet for some time, Graves reloads back to two. Graves's autos push enemies away and critical strikes deal AoE.

End of the Line

Q

Graves fires in a direction which deals physical damage to enemies and leaves behind a powder trail. The projectile detonates after a delay in a perpendicular shape.

Smoke Screen

W

Graves fires a smoke bomb in an area which deals magic damage and slows enemies. Enemies inside the smoke are nearsighted.

Quickdraw

E

Graves dashes and resets his basic attack while reloading one shell. He gains a stack of True Grit which grants Graves with bonus armor.

Collateral Damage

R

Graves fires a shell which explodes in a target direction, dealing physical damage and causing Graves to recoil away.

Basic Combos

Q

AA

Take care when casting your Q as it can block your auto attack and it will not go through. Always auto first for extra damage.

Black Screen of Death

AA

Using your W near the beginning of a combo makes it really hard to react to. Use your Flash in this combo to cancel your W animation.

Quick tips to play Graves

When dueling the enemy, position your

Q towards a wall for an instant burst.

Cancel auto animations with your

E. Never
E
if you have 2 autos available as your
E
resets 1 auto.

You can use your

E or your
R
push back to get over walls. While not ideal, it can help you escape a sticky situation.
