Graves Build

Graves will need reload time after every two shots. Of course there is a way to fire 3 consecutive shots you see in the gameplay section. Navori Quickblades is an equipment that helps to recover skills 20% faster after each critical hit if you want Graves to be able to spam skills continuously, choose this equipment. Assuming 3 quick shots that are all critical, it has up to 60% cooldown.

Black Cleaver In addition to utilities such as health, attack power and skill cooldown, the passive of "Black Cleaver" up to 24% reduces armor if stacked 6 times. I choose this as the item that will go up 2nd because now you have the fire speed and damage, then reducing the armor will ensure that the damage stack will create enough damage to take down the enemy champion.

Bloodthirster Passive up to 15% lifesteal, shoot more turrets better. There is also a shield so that when combined with the "Quickdraw" combo, rush into the Graves enemy with enough strength.

The remaining equipment you can depending on the situation, if you need to increase the crit and you are strong, you can go to "Infinity edge" otherwise the enemy team with good healing resistance can go to "Mortal Reminder" .

How to play Graves

The key for Graves to create maximum damage is to get closer to the target to shoot.

Choose combat near terrain to early detonate "End of the Line".

"Smoke Screen" can be used to create chaos for the enemy squad in teamfights. Or use it to push the turret when the enemy is trying to get behind the turret.

"Quickdraw" is a skill you must understand as follows that cannot be used without firing a single bullet. Because in addition to canceling the auto-attack animations, it also quickly heals you for 1 more shot.

"Quickdraw" and "Collateral Damage" can be used to break through walls or run away and dodge enemy damage.

Early Game

Very strong early game, can gank early and not afraid to go solo if meeting enemy champions. Can go to the jungle, but must always control vision around large targets.

Mid Game

Frequent fighting is not afraid to collide. Dragon Control, Baron.

End Game

Go with the squad trying to find the opportunity to launch "Cannon Explosion Bullets" to hit as many targets as possible.
