Tips Against Graves in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

LambWolf says “Don't duel graves if he has many e stacks. Right click him to check if he has alot of them. You can win fight against him if he doesn't have e stacks before fight.”

Citric says “Against the perfect Graves player, you will never have a good early game. Watch out for his early invades with wards at the entrance of your jungle. He also kites you hard so if you fall behind you will almost never comeback. Graves likes to either level 1 late invade or level 2 invade after doing his red. ”

Pullks says “If skilled he can kite you, dodge your W and generally kill you. He scales incredibly well and is always stealing camps. ”

UDYSOF_OCE says “Graves dueling destroys Jarvan but graves does not gank effectively.”
gankyourgrandma says “Pretty big skill matchup. He can invade you early, but isn't too strong. If you get a lead then you can bully him out of the game.”

Ir.Defender says “Graves got nothing special for dueling Xin Zhao, must be easy target on most of times.”

lightrocket2 says “He does ridiculous damage up close and has a dash so 1v1's are very very difficult. Try to play for objectives because you do scale better but he's overturned and can easily get ahead. Run phase rush”
GrandMaster Taric Jungle : Welcome to the Gemshow by lightrocket2 | Taric Player
NixLychee says “He will kite you, even with your gap closers, and he will power farm and scale, allowing for better fighting late. He's strong both early and late, so be careful with him. His bonus armor makes him incredibly tanky, but you can still duel him early game if you manage to dodge his Q damage.”
[11.15] Lee Sin Owner's Manual by NixLychee | Lee Sin Player
Insightful says “Graves is hard to deal with in the jungle, he has a very strong early game and scales even better, try to avoid his invades and don't fight early, focus on teamfighting with your R up ”

LordGrox says “While this is usually a bad matchup, Graves is currently so weak that it doesn't matter.”

Tips Against Graves in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “He outpushed and outdamages you early. He's short range like you so he should never be able to get close, just root him and walk away. Be careful for his level 1 and 2, and expect big damage from him if he hits a full combo with electrocute. After he gets his galeforce it's gonna be harder for you since he has quite good waveclear and better skirmishing potential than you.”

A55AILANT says “He outpushes and outdamages you early. he's a better skirmisher, so watch out for his galeforce spike.”

BullRedHunter says “His dash makes it hard for you to kill him but you still can 1 shot him”

JustMTK says “This not a matchup in midlane (most of the times) but he's a really strong champion that could surprise you when going in for a kill. So make sure you're stronger than him before deciding to challenge him. (I've made this mistake way too much)”
The Jhin Cena says “Take the Fleet Footwork Laning Rune Page. Graves mid can be pretty cancerous due to his heavy poke and wave clear. He can also snowball to insane amounts of damage just from getting 1 kill, especially if he is going a Lethality build which a lot of Graves mids like to do. Early game, I'd suggest just safely farming and trying your best to stay healthy throughout the lane while taking good recalls and not letting him deny you XP. He gains a lot more from 1 kill than you do, so do not make risky plays. It can be difficult to trade with Graves since he can dash to avoid your Stacked Q, so if you are going to trade, I'd suggest engaging with only 1 stack on your Q. Graves should win most trades against you though, so I'd recommend only trading if his abilities are down or if you have your first item. Overall my strategy for this game is to just passively farm until he roams/recalls, then shoving in the wave and recalling to not be denied much CS. You can also consider taking TP if your team doesn't have a TP since it is good against these farm heavy/poke match ups that try and keep you out of the lane.”

Asuna Cat says “same thing as xin zhao, except this champ is significantly more difficult to play, therefore he is an easy matchup.”

SXafir says “Champions with mobility like dashes and blinks are harder to hit with your R and Q, if you know that they have some kind of mobility try to predict.”
Revengeancee. says “If youre blind, you can't dash, and can't ult. Just use wall to his w.”

Grayified says “Graves has a strong gap closer and can remove your vision, but as long as you play safe when he ganks you aren't going to be affected much by him.”

I1oveZombie says “This is lane graves that's HARD, now I have only faced it ever once... But its the most rediculs thing, he can shove lane lvl 1 shotgun and if hes running fleet you cant really poke him, then when you get lvl 2+ you cant double bomb him as he has dash so the only thing you can do is play with your jungler if you can get gold from farming under turret that is. Good counter into Zilean though.”

Sovereign Kitten says “The changes to Death's Dance really made Graves a pain to deal with, granting him a ton of tank abiliy. Using (Q) against graves doesn't actually stop him from dealing damage, it just spins him around randomly shooting at anything he manages to hit. He is a very mobile champion with a lot of utility to help him chase and lock you down with his smokescreen.”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
Drake6401 says “Favors Renekton. The minion wave blocks his poke and you can use his reload timer as an engage point. He's very mana hungry early so be very aggressive with often trades because he can't keep on fighting like Renekton can. Play safe level 1, poke at 2, get mean at 3. he has no hard CC so you can tower dive him very effectively. Just run in after him and save both dashes.”

Boptimus says “Graves Top is rare but viable, he shouldn't be able to kill you, and you wont be able to kill him. Try to out farm and match him if he tries to roam.”
SunFalk says “When he ganks, go under tower and check for him, his ult deals a lot of damage and can kill you while you recall. His blind makes you unable to fight during the gank”

TEEMO GUIDE by RareParrot | Teemo Player
Fan22 says “Graves hits hard and S11 got him a lot of items to do even more damage. In fights try to engage on him and CC him, if your team hopefully helps you theres a chance you can kill him, but since most Graves run Eclipse and Phase rush it becomes hard to get close to him, a Deadmans plate, Randuins omen, or Frozen heart should be good counter items against him.”
The Inmortal Tree [11.15] Maokai Top & Supp by Fan22 | Maokai Player
Fan22 says “Graves has good mobility and a lot of damage, and his W which nearsights makes landin your abilities really difficult. In late game try to engage on him and use your W to prevente him from using his mobility spells and others. if you are going Glacial hitting Q against graves should be a lot easier.”
