“Gragas top is actually fairly strong early laning so be careful, although not many people play this champion top lane anymore a gragas main is scary early game, once you have a bit of magic resist and HP items as well as your W max though this matchup becomes very easy since he doesn't have the burst to kill you and you can win long trades as well.”
“Counter with your W his R
Use your R when he use jump .”
“Nothing to do in this matchup. Most of the time he outrade and outsustain you.”
“Gragas poke is annoying early game, and his range is slightly longer than yours.
Stay in E range of Gragas because his Q range is longer than yours, and his Q hurts you a lot.
Stand behind minions in this matchup so he can't E you as easily.
What I like to do is E Gragas when I'm behind minions, and then Gragas will E me back right after, but since vault is so fast and pushes you back to your original position, you will actually force him to E the minions in front of you.
This is really helpful to beat Gragas becasue if he misses his E, he is vulnerable.
His E is 4 secondsl onger than your E CD, so it is huge to bait it. However, if he lands E, the CD does refresh back quicker, so keep that in mind.
Post 6, use Galeforce + E to dodge his abilities and to also make his R put you in a place he doesnt want.
If you anticipate Gragas R, E him first because your E animation is so fast.
This will shoot you in a place Gragas doesn't want to hit you since he Rs in a certain angle to launch you to a certain place.
If you E first, his R can actually push you to safety, depending on the circumstance of course.”
“Rare match-up, but moderate. Dodge his Barrel Roll(Q), Body Slam(E), and Explosive Cask(R). and fight him without Drunken Rage(W) out. (Recommended Items: Demonic Embrace and Spirit Visage or Abyssal Mask) (Mega Adhesive negates his E) (Fling overrides his E) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Singed) (Outscaling Edge: Singed)”
“Another champion I main. I've played both sides of this match up and I've found this tends to be Tank Sion favoured. Just farm, stay healthy, and you'll eventually outscale.”
“He will heal all of your poke and any engage will be denied. His poke is extremely hard to dodge as Malphite.
Play it safe and play for botlane. Your lane will be miserable if Gragas is any good.”
“Early he might not be such a big threat but he can engage pretty easily especially if he get's Protobelt. He can poke you with his barrels and even throw you into the team with his ult.”
“insane sustain high base damage and good gank potential, you dont win bring nullifying orb and build mercs/wits into him.”
“Take Conqueror or Grasp of the Undying. This lane is a sustain war, except you win because you don't use mana. Take D-shield and take trades every time he walks up and force him to use mana. If he builds tank it's real easy, just farm the lane out and use him as a bomb in teamfights. If he builds ap it's harder because he does a ton of damage and he kites you really hard with Everfrost and Phase rush. ”
