How do you play Gragas? He is probably my least favorite champ

#1ThyCorndogPosted 2/19/2013 12:56:13 PM
this is after trying him again for the first time in months, I didn't like him then and I don't like him now

everyone sees that barrel (his Q) coming because it's so obvious/slow
his basic attacks are really weak too

what are you supposed to do with him? build tanky and just body slam people?

Harass with 'Q' and your free mana until 50% hp, ult just in front of them -> body slam forward -> 'Q' right in front of them which is almost guaranteed to land since they're slowed and gg they're dead.

Hes a hard champ to play. you need to be 2 steps ahead of the enemy to hit them with .your aoe barrels.

Also, don't forget that your 'W' gives you /A LOT/ of bonus AD PLUS damage reduction so you shouldn't fear autoing them a couple of times. If they decide to turn around and AA you back, you just throw a barrel right behind them and LOL you just won the trade.

His basic attacks are really strong actually. And yeah, the barrels are slow but they provide great utility and aoe damage.

interesting

how about early game when you're laning mid up against a mage? all I've been doing with the barrels is denying them farm since I can't seem to hit anyone with it unless they're right next to me

A good gragas is a terror. I suck with him though.

Just work on observing when and where people move when they're trying to farm and throw barrels where they /WILL/ be, not where they ARE.

You build him like any other AP mid.

I think my problem isn't so much predicting as it is the timing on his Q. The relatively slow speed of the barrel throws me off a lot, so I guess I'll need to work on that
