Hi guys, this is my first guideso please write comments and what i can do better :) I think that Gragas isnt only good for AP mid or sometimes solotop. He is an excellent AD offtank jungler. He is not the fastest jungler at the moment but sure not a slow one like [imgsmall=champ/xinzhao.png] or [imgsmall=champ/fiddlesticks.png] His huge bonus AD earlygame makes him very strong in ganks. He isnt easy to counterjungle cause of his great 1on1 spell [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png]. So follow this guide and test him he is very funny to play and can even carry your team or be the maintank. Why Gragas not Mundo/Nautilus/Alistar jungle? In my opinion its boring to play such mainstream jungler. I think Gragas has MUCH more killing potential since his W gives him 20 (!!!) AD with lvl 1 and 70 with lvl 5 (skill level). Yes Gragas is slower then other junglers but guys its a game, have fun^^

Pros: -Insane earlygame dmg due to [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png] -Good ganks due to [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png]-slow and crazy dmg -high mobility due to [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] -ridicoulus low cd on [imgsmall=skills/gragas/r.png] and OP CC -fun to play -NOT MAINSTREAM! -Gragas is fat and has a retarded beard Cons: -not fastest jungler -need practice and skill to land [imgsmall=skills/gragas/r.png] -not best lategamer -quite useless if not fed (but you are fed most of time)

Yes AD, but AD Offtank. Nearly all Gragas players play him AP. But other AD champs have just 1 AD scaling ability too [imgsmall=champ/shaco.png][imgsmall=champ/tryndamere.png]. [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] scales quite good with AD and u get free 70 AD with [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png]

9 Flat Attack Speed runes for faster jungle. For faster clear time since Gragas isnt fastest jungler. 9 Armor seals to get less dmg in jungle. 9 magic resist per lvl Glyphs to have more magic resist lategame. 3 armor pen essences to make more dmg in ganks

[title][img=skills/gragas/p.png] Passive: Happy Hour[/title] [number]On ability use, Gragas takes a drink restoring 2% of his max health over 4 seconds.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This skill is good for jungle sustain,dont underestimate this spell. After ganks u can get some HP through this spell and since u buy [imgsmall=items/warmogs-armor.png] a nice amount of HP. [title][img=skills/gragas/q.png] Q: Barrel Roll[/title] [number]Gragas rolls his cask to a location, which can be activated again to explode or will explode on its own after 5 seconds, dealing 85 / 135 / 185 / 235 / 285 (+90% of ability power) magic damage in the area. Cost 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 mana Range 1100 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Edit: Some other Gragas jungler take this spell for faster clear time since your [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] divides the dmg at all monsters. But i think its better when u need 15-20 secs more to jungle and have more kill potential in ganks. If u want u can skill 1 point in lvl 1 or 2. [title][img=skills/gragas/w.png] W: Drunken Rage[/title] [number]Gragas guzzles down brew from his cask, channeling for 1 second. He gains 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 mana while channeling, and becomes empowered after finishing, increasing physical attack damage by 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70, and reducing damage taken by 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 / 18% for 20 seconds. Cooldown 30 seconds Range 20 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Your bread and butter.THIS is what gragas makes an excellent jungler, ganker and 1on1 fighter. Max this skill first. Use it before ganks, teamfights and before every camp u clear in jungle. [title][img=skills/gragas/e.png] E: Body Slam[/title] [number]Gragas charges forward, colliding with the first enemy unit he hits and dealing 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+50% of ability power) plus 66% of his physical damage to enemies in the area. Damage is split amongst targets hit. Units hit by Body Slam are slowed by 35% for 2.5 seconds. Cost 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70mana Range 25000[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This spell is your dmg ability. Free flash, good dmg , veryyy good slow better than MOST other jungler slows. A bit weaker aoe dmg ability than barrel roll since it divides the dmg at all monsters/minions, but MUCH better ganking spell since it slows more per lvl and does AD dmg. [title][img=skills/gragas/r.png] R: Explosive Cask[/title] [number]Gragas throws his cask to an area. Upon landing, it deals 200 / 325 / 450 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to all units struck, knocking them back and applying a 20 / 30 / 40% attack speed debuff. Cooldown 90 / 75 / 60seconds Cost 100 / 125 / 150mana Range 1050[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Gamechanging Ult. Good earlygame CC and epic lategame CC. Can seperate enemy carry from team and makes him for champs with gapcloser free kill [imgsmall=champ/nocturne.png][imgsmall=champ/warwick.png][imgsmall=champ/hecarim.png]

[imgsmall=skills/gragas/r.png] > [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png] > [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] > [imgsmall=skills/gragas/q.png] First [imgsmall=skills/gragas/r.png] for lower cooldown. Then [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png] for more dmg and less dmg taking. Then [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] for more Slow and Dmg. Lower cooldown allows u to get more mobility since u can go through walls with this skill. Last [imgsmall=skills/gragas/q.png]. This spell is your main dmg ability when playing AP Gragas, we play AD offtank Gragas so this skill isnt important for us.

[imgsmall=items/cloth-armor.png] and [imgsmall=items/health-potion5.png] for more sustain in jungle and getting ready for next gank with health potions. Otherwise [imgext=][imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png] and [imgsmall=items/health-potion3.png] when ganking at lvl 2 mid or top. [imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png] for faster jungle and jungle sustain. Take [imgsmall=items/ninja-tabi.png] or [imgsmall=items/mercurys-treads.png], depending on enemy team and enemy CC. [imgsmall=items/heart-of-gold.png] for some extra Gold and HP. [imgsmall=items/wits-end.png] for more Attack Speed, dmg , and magic resist. Gragas needs at least 1 Attack Speed item since he has tons of AD and we want to club our enemies as much as possible. [imgsmall=items/warmogs-armor.png][imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png] for both tankiness and dmg, favourite item combo for offtanks. [imgsmall=items/randuins-omen.png] for armor and CC. Learn to use this right and u will see getting teamfights better. [imgsmall=items/guardian-angel.png] Best Lategame item atm in my opinion.Give u armor and magic resist and the passive ability can save teamfights. Take [imgsmall=items/trinity-force.png] if your team sucks and u have to do main dmg. If your team does gj take [imgsmall=items/thornmail.png] or [imgsmall=items/force-of-nature.png] depending on enemy team. If u have fullbuild sell Wriggles and buy [imgsmall=items/trinity-force.png] [imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png][imgsmall=items/sight-ward.png] BUY THESE THEY ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS.BUY BUY BUY .[item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward][item=sight-ward]

Gragas is OP earlygame 1on1 fighter. So u can invade enemy red alone after your blue(or start enemy red in jungle route and then continuing your normal route) and kill most other junglers 1on1 or they will run away. When counterjungling: -Tell your mates to push their lanes so when enemy laners come to help their junglers your mates see them and come to help too and get easy kills since gragas earlygame strenght is OP. -Tell your mates to help you when they see enemy laners come to help (IMPORTANT!!!) Who you should counter (examples not all): [imgsmall=champ/amumu.png] Very weak jungler but picked often since he is great ganker. [imgsmall=champ/fiddlesticks.png]Weakest jungler in my opinion but some people take him. COUNTER [imgsmall=champ/leesin.png] This guy is absolutely weak against you, go take his red or blue when u can, depending where he start, tell your support to cv red and check if its up. [imgsmall=champ/shaco.png] Quite weak against Gragas, get his red. Who you should not counter: [imgsmall=champ/drmundo.png] Not often seen this time since he was nerfed a lot. Didnt fought him since his nerf but i think he is still strong jungler. Maybe invade his blue since he starts red the most time. [imgsmall=champ/olaf.png] Strong 1on1 fighter early, do your jungle route and gank since you are OP ganker^^ [imgsmall=champ/shyvana.png] Same as [imgsmall=champ/olaf.png] [imgsmall=champ/trundle.png] In my opinion very underestimated jungler with very strong 1on1 skill (AD,AS). OP [imgsmall=champ/nocturne.png] Get away from this guy! Strongest counter to gragas since he has AD buff too with Duskbringer and can block your [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] with his spellshield and converts it into bonus attack speed. GTFO OP

Your jungle route will be: Wolves-Golem-Wraiths-Double golems-Lizard-Wraiths. Use [imgsmall=skills/gragas/w.png] before clearing camp and [imgsmall=skills/gragas/e.png] to hit all monsters, you will learn how to use it in jungle if u play Gragas. Screenshots coming soon.

Jungling-Ganking-Warding Jungling-Ganking-Warding Jungling-Ganking-Warding Help lanes which lose. Give midchamp Bluebuffs if they do well.

Ward dragon and try to get him evertime.

This is where Gragas isnt the best fighter atm. Your job will be to land good ultimates to seperate enemy team.

Read Lategame chapter.

So this was my guide about jungling Gragas. I hope you liked it. I'd like to receive feedback and likes.Dont have feeders ingame ;) Cya
