If you’re anything like me, you like off meta builds, dominating your enemies and doing the BIG DAMAGE. However, this isn’t always easy to achive. Some build paths like 3 SG BM CW Reza seem to backfire regularly (damn you Cath), and some build paths like DE CW BM Phinn have potential, but it’s just so hard to use…
Well, fear no more!
WP Grace is your gal!
- Incredibly easy
- Dominates lane
- Has enough utility to still be useful when behind
- Has innate tankiness through her holy shields
- Has amazing wave clear
- Counters pesky ranged enemies with her high mobility
- Counters annoying melee enemies with her SLAM MOVE
- Works well with any sort of background music, whether it be Religious Rap or Anime OPs
- Tilts people off the face of the planet
- oh, and BIG DAMAGE
Here’s a quick guide to winning lane with WP Grace
- Pick Grace
- Purchace Blade and BoE
- Go Top or Bot (and take WP Buff)
- See opponent
- SLAM (Sound Effects are not optional. Shouting ‘THUNK’ into your discord VC leads to best results)
Now that you’ve likely won laning phase by spamming As and forcing the opponent under their turret with your harass and wave clear, you can pick up your first items. SB and Travel Boots are a must here. Travel Boots allows you to shove the lane and invade the enemy JG alongside providing extra pressure against the enemy laner, while SB does the DAMAGE.
Now that you’ve likely claimed half of the map to yourself by 10 minutes into the game, you can start roaming. Run into mid lane, A the laner, then leave. It will not only chunk a quarter of their health for free, but it will psychologically scar them and eventually lead to them never leaving the cosy comfort of their turret, even when you’re on the other side of the map. Remember than since Grace and her damage scales both with WP and CP, having both buffs is basically your god given right, and you should take your opponents buff over and over because of this.
Late game you do this
First thing to know about Grace is that she is not a captain. She is actually a WP Power Crit Assassin. This is evident from the fact that her AA combo leaves the enemies more dead than I am on the inside. The second thing you need to know is that you never build defence. After the recent defence nerfs they’re basically 100% unplayable, and Lifesteal will always bring greater results. I’m not saying that so I can justify more damage, I have a PHD, trust me.
Second thing to know is that building Attackspeed is HERESY. Those who praise the sun such as Grace know that only fools build attackspeed, and those who even touch the filthy attackspeed items in the WP tree do not have any place in the holy land. As such, your build should look something like this.

No regrets my children.
Seriously though it’s completely broken, try it out before it’s nerfed.
