Just bought Graves in Wild Rift and need a few pointers? Read on for our guide on this champion and you'll be a master of the jungle in no time.
Footwork is an important keystone that greatly improves Graves' ability to kite the other team. It also gives you a bit of added sustain.
The Hunter runes let you scale off of your kills by boosting your stats after a successful gank. Brutal, in red, is also a good choice as it makes you even stronger during the early game.
Here's the optimal Skill Order for Graves. Max out his abilities in the order outline below, but don't forget to rank up his ult whenever it becomes available.
Notes: When jungling, End of the Line is a better choice than Quickdraw at Level 1.

Tips and Tricks
- Don't be afraid to use your ultimate as a last resort if you need to escape from a sticky situation, as the recoil from Collateral Damage can be used to propel you away from a gank if you're desperate.
- Graves' auto-attack pushes back Neutral creatures, giving him a way to reliably kite jungle mobs and avoid taking unnecessary damage.
