“i dont know about this lane but from assumption you go even in lane without any big difficulties ”
“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Block his W with your W. His E stops your E so be patient and use at close range or after he uses it. Passive shield Q poke.”
“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.”
“You won't run into lane Gragas very often, but if you do it's a pretty even matchup, maybe slightly favoring Gragas. If you charge your Q in front of him he'll easily just E into you and do his combo. Try to stand behind your minons when you Q so he can't just stun you every time. You can also cancel his dash your your Q (as long as you charged for at least 1 second). He is going to out sustain you in lain due to his passive so keep that in mind. This will end up being a boring matchup with neither dying unless jungle interferes.”
“Just like Galio, Gragas has a nasty combo which can throw you off from your escape route, however, you can also use this to your advantage simply by flashing into his ultimate to send you flying in the opposite direction (over a wall, into your tower) but play it safe into his (Q) > (R) > (E) combo. Which is often set up by leaving his (Q) down for the full duration followed by his (R) as you draw near, while he (E)'s into his (Q) where he has planned to send you. It's very useful to build some magic resistance to help deal with such burst. You can use your (Q) to prevent his empowered damage from his (W) activation.”
“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 ult him 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. ”
“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)”
“AP Gragas is a very hard champ to deal with. He will play safe early and then after 6, start making thos OS plays on you. You can block his Ult to fall behind you and knock you forward, but apparently there is a bug where even when blocked, it still knocks you back and deals the full damage. That makes it nearly impossible to kill him unless you have flash.”
“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.”
“Really boring lane since if you try to jump on him or stun him, he will just E on you and negate your jump aswell as stun you briefly. Just farm and try not to fall for his bait's as he can set up for ganks quite well with his E and ult.”
