W

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

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.

End of The Line

AA
GravesQLineSpell
Q
GravesMove
E
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.

Quick tips to play Graves

When duelling an enemy champion, position your

GravesQLineSpellQ

towards a wall so it explodes quickly.

You can cancel auto-attack animations with your

GravesMoveE

. Never use your

GravesMoveE

if you have 2 auto attacks available as your

GravesMoveE

will reset 1 auto.

Your

GravesMoveE

and Ultimate

GravesChargeShotR

can be used to chase or escape sticky situations. You can also use both of them to get over walls.
