Flash - League of Legends
Smite - League of Legends


Gragas is an AP burst jungler, showing up in lane and dealing devastating damage, while knocking the enemy champion into your waiting teammates. While typically slow, the Predator rune makes him a formidable jungler. 

  • Level 1 - Take W - Drunken Rage, for the additional damage and the damage reduction when farming jungle monsters. 
  • Level 2 - Take Q - Barrel Roll, for area damage and faster jungle clear. 
  • First Back - Pick up your boots as soon as you can, so you can take advantage of the Predator rune.

Tips & Tricks

  • The classic Gragas combo is to Flash into an enemy during the animation of Body Slam.
  • Use Drunken Rage between camps to recover health! 
  • Drunken Rage also reduces damage during channeling.
  • Try to land your ult just behind the enemy line, so it knocks them into your team and away from safety.
