hi my name is mario. i am currently ranked at bronze III in oceania but dont quit the guide right here because i deserve 2 be in at least gold but i cant carry these teams. graves is a very underplayed champion and is very bad at dueling champions but using his shoot really fast and kill really fast abilities i will show you how to win any game.
maxing move really fast and shoot really fast is a must for graves. no further explanation needed maxing smokescreen second allows you to utilise your spell weavign and blade weaving for tons more damage. buckshot isnt a very good ability because i cant figure out how 2 hit all 3 bullets ever graveses ultimate is pretty cool as it scales of both AD and AP, which maximises damage output.
graves isnt really good early game in terms of damage and move speed but he has a lot of sustain because of my runes and masteries. stay in lane as long as you can because every cs missed is that one dollar less you needed to buy that item.
mid game is where graves starts to shine. his full ability combo allows him to dish out tons of damage to unsuspecting enemies and kill them with ease.
as a late game assassin, graves starts to get really good if u used his passive stacking good in lane. his sustain and combinations of abilities will win the game.
because of your sustain, graves should not stay in the back, but rather protect them from other assassins like blitzcrank. you should be able to wipe off the enemy damage by using ur W to snare them and E to move really fast out of the way.
