I always max Body Slam as I like the engage but if you want to focus on farm take Barrel Roll. The Combo is an engage example, if quick enough you can Body Slam into a quick Barrel Roll into Flash combo which is devastating when receiving a gank or ganking.

Gragas

Lets have a drink

Gragas is an all around Wild Rift beast that can play almost every role (not ADC). As a mid main I will always take Gragas if we lack tanky champions to fill the gap as he pretty much brings everything to a team with the builds shown.

Is the passive „abyssal“ from Mask good enough to ignore that the other passive is doubled with Rod of Ages?
