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.

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

GravesQLineSpell

towards a wall for an instant burst.

Cancel auto animations with your

GravesMove

. Never

GravesMove

if you have 2 autos available as your

GravesMove

resets 1 auto.

You can use your

GravesMove

or your

GravesChargeShot

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