Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.
Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.
Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.
Gragas can knock everybody away with his ultimate. Be careful that you don't get knocked into him or, worse, an enemy tower.
Body Slam is on a very low cooldown, making it difficult to pursue Gragas. Don't overextend yourself chasing him.
