Graves General information

Graves tips and tricks

When duelling an enemy champion, position your End of the LineQ towards a wall so it explodes quickly.

You can cancel auto-attack animations with your QuickdrawE. Never use your QuickdrawE if you have 2 auto attacks available as your QuickdrawE will reset 1 auto.

Your QuickdrawE and Ultimate Collateral DamageR can be used to chase or escape sticky situations. You can also use both of them to get over walls.
