Gragas counter tips

General advice on how to play against Gragas
These champs are strong against Gragas at most phases of the game. They’re listed based on their win rate against Gragas.
Laning Against Gragas

Laning Against Gragas

Look for extended trades whenever possible. Gragas relies heavily on his abilities to deal damage, but if they’re on cooldown he cannot really do anything except for auto-attack. Go for extended trades when one of his abilities are down.

Gragas can tease an engage when his Body Slam Body SlamE is up. Try and stand behind or near minions at all times. However, do not stand too close to them since the ability does have an AOE and if you’re close to them, you’ll be hit by his Body SlamE.

If Gragas uses his Drunken RageW, it’s because he wants to do something such as setting up his Jungler or going for a trade. Play safer for a short period of time whenever he uses his Drunken RageW.

Strategy VS Gragas

Strategy VS Gragas

Do not group closely together when sieging an objective or team fighting as it provides Gragas with an opportunity to knock your whole team into his with his Ultimate Explosive CaskR.

When fighting, make sure you’re not too far forward or split from your team. If you’re too far forward, he could use his Ultimate Explosive CaskR to push you into his team. Getting caught out like this could result in the enemy taking an objective shortly afterwards.

Try to constantly poke and harass Gragas. Having him on low health will prevent him from playing or positioning aggressively.

Gragas Power Spikes

Gragas Power Spikes

Like most champions, Gragas spikes again at level 6 as his Ultimate Explosive CaskR is a really good tool when it comes to ganking. Expect him to gank overextended lanes whenever he is level 6.

Always keep an eye on what items he’s buying. Gragas can go tank or can build a lot of AP. If he’s going AP, respect his damage output.

Whenever Gragas has his Body SlamE up, he is a bigger threat and you need to position and play safely. If he uses his Body SlamE and it misses, you can look to turn the exchange around.
