in solo queue to 'win' with gragas should i be gathering with my team and sieging towers? or should i go for a more teamfight orientated barell and ult to be most benefit to my team. i;m asking because even though i have a good score at the end quite often i still lose; i know your score isnt everything but it helps to not go 0/5.

Honestly? Ryze. Its not hard to build a tanky Ryze, as its better to stack mana on him than AP, plus, he's the perfect Veigar counter, as Veigar's R also deals 80% of the target's AP damage as well.

Also, Ryze isn't called a recommended champion for nothing

AP carry? Gragas. Ryze is a mana carry. The only AP item I might build on Ryze is the Archangel's staff or Mejais soulstealer (If im pubstomping hard). Rod of ages is a choice too, but RoA is more about the mana.

stop being such a pedant, they serve the same role: main magic damage dealing champion on the team, regardless of whatever they scale off of.

Imo ryze is scarier than gragas.
The best damage combo for ryze:
W -> Q -> E -> Q -> R -> Q -> W -> Q -> E -> Q
That provides the most overall damage. After that it's pretty much throw your Q W and E around until ult is back up so you can perform the combo again.
