Basic Attack Damage: 20 +110% Total Physical Attack → 50 + 110% Total Physical Attack

Skill Recap and Tips

Passive: Caprice

Granger fills his gun with 6 bullets at a time. Every 6th bullet deals crit damage. Granger's basic attack will deal more damage, but he only gains 50% Attack Speed from Equipment or Emblems.

Skill 1 - Rhapsody

Granger fills his gun with all bullets and shoots then forward with each bullet dealing 45 / 75 / 105 / 135 / 165 / 195 (+70% Total Physical Attack) points of Physical Damage to enemies for a maximum damage of 270 / 450 / 630 / 810 / 990 / 1170 (+420% Total Physical Attack) Physical Damage.

Granger can freely move and cast spells as well as Rondo while casting this skill, but he can't change the direction he's facing.

This skill can be interrupted by Crowd Control.

Skill 2 - Rondo

Granger dashes in the designated direction and his next 2 basic attacks will deal extra 10% / 14% / 18% / 22% / 26% / 30% damage in the next 5 seconds.

Each time the bullets hit an enemy hero, the cooldown of this skill will be reduced by 0.5 second.

Ultimate Skill: Death Sonata

Granger transform his violin into a Super Cannon and fills it all with Super Bullets. During this period, he is unable to cast any other skills or perform basic attacks, he shoots out three Super Bullets at a time, he can move to another location after shooting out a Super Bullet and the Super Bullets ignores minions and only hits enemy heroes.

The Super Bullet deals 80 / 120 / 160 (+70% Total Physical Attack) + 12% of the target's lost HP points of Physical Damage to enemies hit and slows them by 80%.

When this skill's duration ends, for every 2 remaining Super Bullets left, he will reduce the cooldown of this skill by 15%.

Granger can shorten the time needed to load the next Super Bullet if his roll is interrupted by an obstacle.

This skill can be cancelled/interrupted by Crowd Control effect in during Super Bullets.

1. Do not build attack speed item on Granger. As indicated in his abilities, it would be inefficient to build those items for Granger.

2. The range of skill 1 is a bit longer compared to his basic attack range.

3. Use your 6th bullet first before using Skill 1 as much as possible.

4. You can move while using this skill 1.

5. The enhanced basic attack should be casted within 5 seconds. After casting the first one, the cooldown will reset back to 5 seconds. That means no need to rush casting both bullets within 5 seconds.

6. Spam skill 2 by using it to rotate quickly in farming jungle monsters. In teamfight, reserve it to blink away or to secure kills by chasing enemies. This will serve as your mini-flicker or repositioning skill

7. Use ult near the wall. When you jump towards the wall when you are using your ult, the next bullets will be casted faster.

Warning: You can pass through some walls so be careful. An example of a wall that you cannot pass through is the edge wall of the map itself.

15% of the total cooldown of this skill is reduced for every bullet that has not been used. This can be useful if you failed to use the first bullet properly or the enemies decide to retreat.

8. You can secure objectives such as turtle, lord, or even buff by using skill 1 and pressing Retribution while skill 1 is still active to combine its damage.


Recommended Emblem:
  • Bounty Hunter/Killing Spree Talent
  • 3pts for CDR/Move Spd and Phy PEN
Spell: Purify or Retribution or Aegis/Sprint/Flicker

Recommended item build:
  • Magic Shoes
  • Raptor Machete
  • Blade of Despair
  • Berserker's Fury
  • Immortality
  • Malefic Roar
Spare: Rose Gold Meteor - This is good against Burst Magic Damage because of its passive and magic defense stat. Especially if there is a good enemy Gusion, always remember that you can build this item.



1. Wait for the enemy to use blink skills to have a higher chance to successfully damage them with your skills especially Skill 1

2. Use ult near the wall. When you jump towards the wall when you are using your ult, the next bullets will be casted faster.

3. To farm jungle monsters faster, use skill 2 immediately to get in the jungle monster's range. Then use skill 1, then after killing it, your skill 2 is most likely be refreshed. This is his 2-1-2 fast farming combo.

Overall, Granger is actually just an easy hero to use even though his skills requires aiming to be maximized.
