[imgext=http://imgur.com/f3C87E4] well , this my profile...

My runes [imgext=http://imgur.com/jTuJWns] Well its kinda the same all adc runes , AD and ARpen and Armor , But i got asked why i don`t take MR , why i took Attack speed instead of it , well i guess runes is something useless for our late games , we only need it in lane phase , so i guess u don`t need MR everything u need is being super aggressive AND KILL ALL.

[title][img=skills/graves/p.png] Passive: True Grit[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Graves gains 1 / 2 / 3 bonus armor and magic resistance every second he remains in combat. This bonus stacks up to 10 times. Graves is considered in combat if he has dealt or received damage in the last 3 seconds. [title][img=skills/graves/q.png] Q: Buckshot [/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Active: Graves fires three bullets in a cone, dealing physical damage to all enemies in their path. Enemies at close range can be hit by multiple projectiles, but each bullet beyond the first will deal only 35% damage. Range: 750 Cost: 60/70/80/90/100 mana Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8 seconds Physical Damage: 60/95/130/165/200 (+0.8 per bonus attack damage) Max Physical Damage: 102/161.5/221/280.5/340 (+1.36 per bonus attack damage) [title][img=skills/graves/w.png] W: Smokescreen[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Active: Graves fires a smoke canister at the target area, dealing magic damage upon landing and creating a cloud of smoke for 4 seconds. Enemies inside the smoke cloud will be slowed and will have their vision reduced to 625 range; everything else will look like it is in the Fog of War. Range: 700 Area of effect radius: 250-300 (estimate) Cost: 70/75/80/85/90 mana Cooldown: 20/19/18/17/16 seconds Magic Damage: 60/110/160/210/260 (+0.6 per ability power) Slow: 15/20/25/30/35 % [title][img=skills/graves/e.png] E: Quickdraw[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Active: Graves dashes forward, gaining an attack speed boost for 4 seconds. Using autoattacks on enemy units, but not structures, lowers the cooldown of Quickdraw by 1 second each autoattack. Cost: 50 mana Range: 425 Cooldown: 22/20/18/16/14 seconds Attack Speed: 40/50/60/70/80 % [title][img=skills/graves/r.png] R: Collateral Damage[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Active: Graves fires an explosive shell in a straight line, dealing heavy physical damage to the first champion it hits (also damages non-champion enemies whilst in flight). After hitting a champion or reaching the end of its range, the shell explodes dealing physical damage in a cone behind the target. Cost: 100 mana Range: 1000 Cone Range: 800 (estimate) Cone Width: Cooldown: 100/90/80 seconds Initial Physical Damage: 250/350/450 (+1.4 per bonus attack damage) Explosion Physical Damage: 140/250/360 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) Something important , graves's [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png] Is for harassing nthn more , cuz as i said , he is a caster adc

[imgext=http://imgur.com/ePlosY9] The way you want to play Graves in lane is as a bully, and a pusher. You want to continuously shove your opponent into the turret (this is easy with your [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png]) and pressure them while they try to CS. It is extremely easy for Graves to shove the lane and harass at the same time, you want to time your [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png] when the enemy AD is going for a CS this way it hits them and the creep wave, which pushes the lane and does damage to your enemy. You can also choose to freeze the lane if you want if you are against a weaker AD, and zone them/force trades all day. If someone misses a skill shot, or uses a key ability (taric stun) don't be afraid to [imgsmall=skills/graves/e.png] in and get good damage on them. You are an extremely potent brawler in lane, your passive true grit makes it very difficult to trade with you. Once you are 6, your kill potential goes up massively. You can look to "wombo combo" people especially if you are laning with someone who has hard CC like taric/sona. Your[imgsmall=skills/graves/e.png]-[imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png] combo will pretty much kill any other ad, or at the least force them out of lane. Once you have your [imgsmall=items/the-bloodthirster.png] your damage skyrockets in lane, and your pushing power is great. Look to push out the lane, and shove your opponents out. This makes it easy for your team to pressure objectives like dragon, and mid turret.

[imgext=http://imgur.com/DITc5ZJ] Be aggressive , Keep spamming/poke your enemies with [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png] , its the best way to get a teamfight , an important thing is avoiding enemy pokers ([imgsmall=champ/ahri.png]-[imgsmall=champ/ezreal.png](If he was playing the blue G@Y ezreal-[imgsmall=champ/jayce.png]-[imgsmall=champ/nidalee.png])

[img=champ/ashe.png]Difficulty rate : 2/5 U can burst her [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png][imgsmall=skills/graves/r.png] , she can`t be annoy in lane , since u have your [imgsmall=skills/graves/p.png] to def ur self from her W [img=champ/caitlyn.png] Difficulty rate 4/5 I guess this girl is the hardest counter for graves , she can totally outrange/poke/zone him , She don`t have that high dmg but her range is really hurts, against her , u need a support that can def u , something like ([imgsmall=champ/sona.png][imgsmall=champ/soraka.png][imgsmall=champ/taric.png]) they can heal you as well to stay in ur lane , at level 6 u can fight her and kill her as well , everything u need is trying to farm as much as u can , even if u needed to use ur [imgsmall=skills/graves/q.png] , CAIT IS HARD VS GRAVES. [img=champ/corki.png]Difficulty rate1/5 No problem at all. [img=champ/draven.png] Difficulty rate 2/5 After the new patch , and riot changed his passive ( thx riot <3 i love you ) and nerfed his dmg already , he is not hard vs graves , graves's [imgsmall=skills/graves/p.png] Can help him as well against this dude , also since [imgsmall=champ/draven.png] is a squishy adc with no survive skills , no hope for him to escape [imgsmall=champ/graves.png]'s burst so .... ; ) [img=champ/ezreal.png] Difficulty rate 3/5 It depends of how smart can ur enemy ezreal be , if he avoided ur "wombo combo " , and he start poking u , that `ll make some problems for u , if he was`t that startas$ its easy for u to 1 SHOT WOMBO COMPO [img=champ/kogmaw.png]Difficulty rate 2/5 Everything u have to do is avoiding him while using " W " , cuz he`ll annoy u with it , after lvl 6 u can kill him as well , u need a support like "[imgsmall=champ/thresh.png]" to do this job [img=champ/missfortune.png] Difficulty rate 3/5 She can be annoy ... yes she can : / [img=champ/quinn.png] Difficulty rate 1/5 She is a squishy champ , the clue to win , is dodging her Q " the blind " with ur [imgsmall=skills/graves/e.png] [img=champ/sivir.png] Difficulty rate: 3/5 U have to care from this ... her Q has a high dmg , really hurts , try to stand behind ur minions and annoy her with ur skills , and make sure " after lvl 6" not to hit her [imgsmall=skills/graves/r.png] If she did`t waste her E somewhere [img=champ/tristana.png] Difficulty rate:4/5 She has stronger burst than u do , Take care of her , she can lose u your lane be4 and after 6 , u need a supp like [imgsmall=champ/sona.png][imgsmall=champ/taric.png][imgsmall=champ/thresh.png] if she had [imgsmall=champ/leona.png] as a support , their burst is more than enough to DELETE you... if she had [imgsmall=champ/leona.png] support u must take [imgsmall=summoners/cleanse.png] , if any other supports take [imgsmall=summoners/barrier.png] and be happy dude , YOLO [img=champ/urgot.png]Difficulty rate ??? Actually ,.. i never played against him in lane , but i guess he is an annoying opponent... his aced and those stuffs ... argh! [img=champ/varus.png]Difficulty rate0/5 Graves is the hard counter for him , varus is a caster and graves is kind of tanky when he stack his [imgsmall=skills/graves/p.png] [img=champ/vayne.png]Difficulty rate3/5 It depends of ur skills and her skills and ur support champ and her support champ , anyways don`t face her 1 v 1 , stay away from walls and bushs , she can totally outplay you
