Laning Against Graves

Laning Against Graves

Only look to fight Graves if there are lots of allied minions in lane so you can use them to block his auto-attacks.

Graves auto attacks are not always effective as monsters/minions/towers block his damage and consume a bullet. Stay behind a monster or minion to avoid his auto-attack damage. When fighting around the Scuttle Crab, make sure it’s in between you and him so it blocks an auto.

When duelling Graves, try and stand away from terrain as he will use it to his advantage to make his End of the LineQ explode quicker.

Strategy VS Graves

Strategy VS Graves

Grouping against Graves will prevent him from taking down key targets in team fights as he will struggle to get through multiple champions at once. CC is also very good against him as he is quite immobile even with his Ultimate Collateral DamageR and QuickdrawE.

In the later stages of the laning phase and early into the mid-game, he will try and kill isolated targets that are walking through Summoners Rift alone. Stick to walking around the map through warded areas only especially if he’s ahead.

Graves strong duelling potential and good wave clear means he will be looking to split push during the mid-game. Force fights with his team when he isn’t able to impact team fights.

Graves Power Spikes

Graves Power Spikes

Once Graves gets his first item, his kill pressure will increase. Expect him to play more aggressive once he has some levels and item components behind him.

At level 6, Graves will gain access to his Ultimate Collateral DamageR. Once he has his Ultimate Collateral DamageR available, his kill pressure increases dramatically.

The more gold Graves gets, the stronger he will become. Try to reduce his gold income by constantly matching his pushing power and avoid dying to him during the laning phase.
