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

GravesSmokeGrenade ui-spell
W

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

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.
