Sure, I'd be down to help you out. I may have more time for a casual practice game on a Saturday or Sunday, but if you catch me not doing anything watching tv or something, id help you out.
If you want to play AD Gragas, there are only a few things you want to remember
#1 - Have Drunken Rage up in every battle
#2 - Bait Bodyslams by moving back like you are running from someone to pull them out more, bodyslam has a short cd so use it to help you farm gold, bodyslam to escape, bodyslam to scare, bodyslam to heal from your passive.
#3 - Never forget that Health is still important. That is why playing safe until you have about 4 stacks on a Leviathan is good, and getting an early Phage is great. Phage + Levi + Sunfire Cape is a good mix of dps and snare.

Also just watch my livestream to learn.. There is things I could tell you, but watching someone do it might be a better learning tool. I am personally a visual learner, not a instructional one.

Nico, I'm going to have to ask you to stop popularizing Gragas.


I've actually had someone else choose him before me twice recently. UNACCEPTABLE.

This is Gragas we're talking about here.

Funny I actually play a hardcore AP gragas... its dominant in the early/mid game. It only begings to tail off 40+ mins into the game and then only against non-squishy champs.

I max barrel first! HA

What do you think about Stinger > Nashor's as a more DPS centered Gragas? The CDR is nice and complements Brutalizer.

lvl 1 body slam is great, if you get elixir of fortitude with it in the start you do insane dmg, you hit like a freakin truck :P

It's very useful, as the improved attack speed helps make the most of Drunken Rage's increased attack damage. The added CDR also allows you to keep Drunken Rage up 100% of the time. And hey, a 45 second cooldown on his ult doesn't hurt either. Turning it into Nashor's Tooth, that should really only happen late game, as it's definitely not a priority.

Just lost a game because the last fight I kept body slamming into singed's poison trail. That need a fix so bad.
