I find it really difficult to keep true grit active while also only last hitting, the reason being that I can only keep true grit up constantly by attacking minions, which pushes my lane and opens me up to ganks.

Which leads me to my question: how do I keep True Grit stacks up while avoiding this? Is Graves meant to keep attacking minions (not constantly, mind you. Every 2 seconds or so) and push hard (kind of like how Trist's Explosive shot causes her to push hard unintentionally) and rely on his passive to survive ganks?

If not, again, how do I keep the TG stacks up without pushing my lane?

Shoot the other champions?

I mean, honestly unless you're going to be super aggressive anyway you don't really need full stacks of true grit up the entire time.

It's not meant to be up all the time?

It's meant to be up while you're in combat.

I mean, look, you said it yourself, if you use minions to keep it up, you push your lane, which leaves you exposed to ganks. Being vulnerable to ganks is more dangerous than not having your True Grit stacks, right? Right.

So don't worry about keeping full stacks unless the enemy champions are positioning themselves in a manner that lets you constantly poke at them. And if that's the case, you're poking at them to poke at them, not simply for the sake of keeping up your True Grit stacks.

or be aggressive and have your support ward, tribrush AND river if blue or just river if purple, and keep the lane pushes

being aggressive with graves is easy, especially if you have a good support with him like a taric or blitz
plus it lets other lanes be aggressive also since you will draw the junglers down more and with wards you can just back off when hes coming, unless they have globals, in which case be careful, not passive, after they hit 6 regaurdless
