CORE ITEMS:
Merc Boots
Sheen -> Lichbane
Aegis or Spirit Visage if someone has Aegis
Frozen Mallet

Then just go to defense or damage tab and buy what your lacking.

Max W and E before getting a single point into barrel.
Priority: R, W, E, Q

You should try to keep W, and E about the same level. You can farm pretty well by using E on the caster minions or just into a bunch of minions.

Harass by charging at the enemy, get a auto attack in and run back unless your teammate attacks also.

Use your ult to try and push the enemy into your tower or push him back when he's escaping, or even to push the enemy back to escape.

I use AD red runes, yellow flat mana regen, and blue cool down.
flash and ignite work the best for me.

innervating locket could be a good item for grag but i just never get to it.
my build is :
1 doran shield
2 merc threads
3 omen/veil
4 guardian angel
5 veil/omen
always veil and omen in the order best suited
6 depends to most needed

7 switch dorans shield in other item better suited or just stronger

skill level up is
slam
drink
barrel
slam
drink
toss
slam
drink
slam
drink
then just toss and barrels

barrels are not needed at all just pick lvl 1 to heal with passive

Locket, visage, randuins. After that, buy whatever you want, you're unkillable.

It depends on what you're facing.

If it's an AP heavy group locket/visage is great for regenning health fast after their burst.

If it's a squishy heavy team then no one drops groups of squishies faster than an AP gragas with a double barrel.

Locket + Visage does not make you unkillable. Randuin, Veil and Sunfire will make you unkillable.

Please do not go locket. You can't tank out of HP regen. Locket and visage gives you great HP regen early on, but it won't save you in the middle of a mid-late game fight.

Since you get great damage reduction with drunken rage, stack resist items that also give you HP to make the most effective tank.

Good items are:
Heart of Gold / Randuin's Omen
Banshee's Veil
Spirit Visage
Aegis of Legion

These items give you good damage resist, which becomes great resist with drunken rage. Combine that with all of the HP you've been getting and you will be a true damage taker.

As to skill order to level 6:
Slam
Rage
Rage
Slam
Rage
Cask

Don't get barrels because they are too mana intensive and don't do enough damage until high-leveled. Use the rage damage bonus to dominate anyone who engages you with body slam and high-damage auto-attacks.
