How to play Graves


Graves is an AD auto-attack-focused jungler. He has one of the best early game duels against any other junglers which means he can have an aggressive early game jungle path to try and get an advantage early. Graves has a very unique kit different from others. Graves's Shotgun only has 2 bullets, which means after you auto-attack twice, you need to reload so just make sure you keep that in mind and don't get caught whilst reloading.


Graves can also be played in the top lane. With his early game damage and aggression, he can bully out champions in the solo lane and get a lot more gold and experience than playing jungle, meaning you can reach your core items sooner and start to deal a lot of damage early.

Graves Build breakdown


Navori Quickblades
Infinity Edge
Solari Chargeblade
Death's Dance
Guardian Angel
Gluttonous Greaves - Protobelt

Graves does really well with items that have attack damage and ability haste to deal damage and to use his abilities more often. With that in mind, Navori Quickblade is a great first item for Graves. Once you deal critical damage to an enemy all your non-ultimate cooldowns are reduced. This item on top of Infinity Edge and Solari Chargeblade can get you 75% and sometimes even 100% with the Chargeblade passive. This means that Graves can use his abilities a lot and dash around meaning he will be able to auto-attack more with his shotgun.


Onto the runes, we have:

Phase Rush

Graves has a lot of ways to quickly proc Phase Rush with his abilities and auto-attacks, to give him a huge burst of movement speed to keep up with the enemies when they try to run away.

Brutal

This helps out Graves in the early game get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and getting them early ganks off.

Hunter - Titan

With Graves, you will be in a lot of fights and get plenty of damage on the enemies especially if you play aggressively early on. This allows Graves to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.

Mastermind

The go-to rune for junglers in Wild Rift! Allows Graves to deal 10% bonus true damage to epic monsters and adaptive damage to turrets! On top of that, he can earn an extra 120 gold when you takedown objectives!

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for that killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Help's you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


With Graves, he has a very fast early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle really fast and be aggressive when contesting the scuttle crabs in the rivers when they spawn. It is best to start at Red Brambleback as you don't really struggle on mana and the extra damage you get can help clear the jungle faster.

This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Red Brambleback
  2. Raptors
  3. Blue Sentinel
  4. Scuttle Crab 1 (In river)
  5. Scuttle Crab 2 (Opposite river)
  6. Gank or continue to farm jungle.

Below is a beginner's guide for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp. Epic monsters and more!:


Late Game


In the late game, Graves struggles can be a powerhouse with all the critical strike items. The best thing you can do is group with your team and try to pick off the enemies. Your main objective as a jungler is to keep track of when Dragon's, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When in a team fight try your best not to get caught out and try to keep auto-attacking and using your abilities to deal damage.

Conclusion


Overall if you like the sound of an early aggressive jungler that can make an impact then Graves is the perfect champion for you. Try to finish the game as quickly as possible because the longer the game goes the harder it gets for Graves to carry the game.
