Gameplay

Graves is both as an early-game bully and a potential late-game threat. In general terms, Graves is better to be left alone/un-stacked, or as item holder for late-game Blasters. However, when building correctly he becomes a late-game anti-carry that wins fights, not by damage, but by the sheer utility of his Smoke grenade against important late-game carries such as Jhin DarkCosmicSquare Jhin.

As any other 1-Cost is always recommendable to 3 Star him for maximum survivability and stats. His core item set as a carry is Rapid Firecannon item Rapid Firecannon Spear of Shojin item Spear of Shojin and Red BramblebackSquare Red Buff to deal with late game front lines. With this, he can permanently chain his Smoke Grenade by getting mana from Shojin in conjunction with Blasters procs from the safety of the backline.

Notes

  • When Graves lands a critical hit, all enemies in his cone of attack take critical damage (unlike for example Runaan's Hurricane item Runaan's Hurricane or Jeweled Gauntlet item Jeweled Gauntlet).
  • Graves has a unique Gunslinger TFT icon Gunslinger interaction: shooting multiple times at different targets instead of shooting two projectiles at the same time. In rare but no uncommon instances, Graves can damage the same enemy twice if both targets are near each other.
  • Graves can only target units 1 hex away, the pellets travel 1 hex pass his maximum range. This also holds true for equipping Rapid Firecannon item Rapid Firecannons. With one Rapid Firecannon he can target units 2 hexes away, but the pellets will travel a total of 3 hexes.
  • Rapid Firecannon item Rapid Firecannon decreases his cone angle to 45°.
