Early Game

With this Graves Graves Build he tends to prefer “power farming”, putting more focus on clearing the jungle camps as fast as possible and gaining an experience and gold advantage, getting to his core items earlier and allowing him to take over the game. This style of jungling is especially good against those who have slower clear times and prefer to gank, such as Lee Sin or Elise Elise.

Graves Graves isn’t as strong as those champions early on, but with an item or two, he becomes much stronger than them and scales much better. That being said, if an opportunity presents itself, getting a kill or two can really speed up that scaling process.

Team Fights

This means hitting as many enemies as possible with End of the Line End of the Line and Collateral Damage Collateral Damage when they group up.

Biography

Malcolm Graves is a renowned mercenary, gambler, and thief—a wanted man in every city and empire he has visited. Even though he has an explosive temper, he possesses a sense of criminal honor, often enforced at the business end of his double-barreled shotgun Destiny. In recent years, he has reconciled a troubled partnership with Twisted Fate, and together they have prospered once more in the turmoil of Bilgewater’s criminal underbelly.
