Passive: Happy Hour
On ability use, Gragas takes a drink restoring 2% of his max health over 4 seconds.
This is a really strong passive because of the low mana cost on Gragas's spells. Early, game you'll be balancing your spells out to harass and heal yourself. Rarely do you ever see me cast 2 spells at once, unless i'm going to heavily damage my opponent or go for the kill. You want to use your passive as efficiently as possible and restore as much hp as you can. For instance, when you've just finished casting drunken rage to restore mana and health through the passive, do not cast a barrel until your passive has disappeared. Every little bit counts and will help you become a better player!
Q: Barrel Roll
Gragas rolls his cask to a location, which can be activated again to explode or will explode on its own after 5 seconds, dealing 85 / 135 / 185 / 235 / 285 (+90% of ability power) magic damage in the area.
Cost 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 mana
Gragas's barrel roll is his main harass spell and farming spell. You mainly use this spell to harass your opponent down in lane and then go for the kill. Another good way to use this spell, is to do q-->e-->r-->q--->e+ ignite, this is his burst damage combo. If you can 1 shot your enemy by just using qer+ ignite, it is worth it to kill them fast and RUN - so u dont get ganked!. Using your judgement is key on gragas, because having that ignite is a big threat to your opponent. If you are able to kill your opponent with just EQR, make sure to not use ignite. There are other situations that you may want to just use ignite anyways just to kill them faster. If you were in a low health position, and you want to burst them down , before they can deal damage to you ---> ignite + qer with smart cast.
W: Drunken Rage
Gragas guzzles down brew from his cask, channeling for 1 second. He gains 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 mana while channeling, and becomes empowered after finishing, increasing physical attack damage by 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70, and reducing damage taken by 10 / 12 / 14 / 16 / 18% for 20 seconds.
Cooldown 30 seconds
Drunken Rage is an awesome spell, because it gives you very good lane sustainability and makes you able to tank early game. Don't underestimate the damage reduction on Drunken Rage, it is huge! Always remember to use Drunken Rage, before engaging a fight - it will save you ^^ ! Drunken Rage helps you so much in lane because it gives you mana and heatlh through your passive. Although Gragas is a melee caster, drunken rage helps him deal with ranged casters in the early phase of the game. Also remember that Drunken rage gives you additional attack damage, which makes last hitting SUPER SUPER DUPER Wooper easy peezee pumpkin ez.
E: Body Slam
Gragas charges forward, colliding with the first enemy unit he hits and dealing 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+50% of ability power) plus 66% of his physical damage to enemies in the area. Damage is split amongst targets hit. Units hit by Body Slam are slowed by 35% for 2.5 seconds.
Cost 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70mana
2nd, but not least..... BODY SLAM. Body slam is my favorite spell because Gragas rams his fat belly into the opponent making then queezy due to how smelly his belly is.
Okay bros, Body slam helps with ganks so much because it gives you such high mobility. You can really outplay opponents, because you can dodge skill shots, and jump through almost any wall. Remember that Body Slam does very very high damage on single target champions, so when you catch an opponent in the middle of the jungle or river... hes pretty much dead.
R: Explosive Cask
Gragas throws his cask to an area. Upon landing, it deals 200 / 325 / 450 (+100% of ability power) magic damage to all units struck, knocking them back and applying a 20 / 30 / 40% attack speed debuff.
Cooldown 90 / 75 / 60seconds
Cost 100 / 125 / 150mana
Watch the video BELOW to learn how to use gragas ultimate for disposition.
Explosive Cask is the hardest part about Gragas and used differently in every single position. Depending on the team composition and situation, there are a few ways to use his ultimate.
You can use Gragas ultimate for ; Disposition, Burst, or poke.
When you're playing against a team without heal, your objective is to get golem/deathcap and go down middle with your team. You want to stay very very far back and cast Barrel Rolls and Explosive Cask! As soon as you get that deathcap, grab blue and get your team to go middle. If you're in solo queue, make sure to let them to know that your objective is not to engage, but to poke and take towers. With blue, deathcap and a brilliance potion, your ultimate should be 40 seconds and you can just siege towers!
