Introduction

If you DOWNVOTE the guide, TELL ME WHY. I am happy to listen to your feedback and improve! Guide is still under construction.

Hey everyone! I'm WalrusLemon and this is my first guide on Mobafire. I've been testing this build and setup for quite some time, with many successful games i thought it was time to share my build! Ezreal is a fun champion to play, his ult Trueshot Barrage allows you to snipe the enemy or secure kills! I created an AP Ezreal guide because i've seen many guides here are for playing AD Ezreal, i like playing AD but i felt that playing AD doesn't use Ezreal's abilities to its full potential. So i thought i would experiment a bit playing AP and had much success in game! Now that we have the intro, Lets get into the guide!

Pros/Cons


Pros:
Cons:
  • Squishy
  • May be hard to play for some people because 3/4 his abilities are skillshots
  • Weak early game, but shines mid and late game
  • needs items to be good
  • focused

There is 21 in offense masteries for obvious reasons, the upgraded Ignite ability power and attack damage plus the increased movement speed using Ghost. I've picked Summoner's Insight for the cooldown reduction on Flash and also picked Mastermind to lower down the cooldowns even more, all the masteries tag along well with Enchantment: Distortion so you can use Flash alot more often to escape or attack. I also picked one in Runic Affinity to keep blue buff longer for more sustained mana in the laning phase.

Greater Seal of Scaling Magic Resist

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration - it increases Ezreal's ability damage ALOT.
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration - To help Ezreals low mana pool early game.
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power - It gives you a nice chunk of AP early game
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist - Magic resist to sustain longer in mid lane

Summoner Spells

Ignite, i usually pick this because it gives that extra "push" when attempting to kill an enemy champ.
Flash, i pick this all the time! Using Ezreal's Arcane Shift with Flash gives you 2 escape mechanisms and offense!
i dont usually pick Ghost but if i did, i would tag it along with Flash. This would give Ezreal 3 escapes and 3 offense mechanisms :D

Ability Explanation



Mouse-over the icons to see ability description



Rising Spell Force: // Ezreal's steroid passive, It is great for attacking towers and also works well with Lich Bane.



Mystic Shot: // Ezreal's farm, harass, bush checker and kiting skill. I love the low cooldown and low mana cost, i like to use this to poke the enemy mid laner and use it to last hit minions.
Tips and Tricks
  • I suggest using SmartCasting with this ability
  • Use to harass the enemy and last hit minions
  • Use to check bushes



Essence Flux: // It only hits enemy champions, and if it hits an ally it increases their attack speed. This skill is great usage for team fights and does a great amount of damage (uses 80% ability power! WOW!)
Tips and Tricks
  • Don't use it often in the early game, it uses too much mana. use it if you REALLY have to (jungler gank, team-fight, etc.)
  • Use SmartCast
  • Try hitting enemy champs and your teammates while in a teamfight, you will do a lot of damage and at the same time you will buff your team!



Arcane Shift: // Basically just like Flash but does damage and has a lower cooldown! It is a great gap-closer, escape, and finisher for fleeing enemy champs.
Tips and Tricks
  • // Try your best to conserve the ability, for incase you get into a sticky situation!
  • // Use it with Flash, its a great combo for evading nasty ganks
  • // Use it on fleeing enemies if you are sure you can secure the kill.



TrueShot Barrage: // A powerful global ult, its great for initiating teamfights and grabbing kills!
Tips and Tricks
  • // Predict the enemy movement when sniping with this ability, dont just ult on their exact position
  • // use during teamfight and damage all the enemy champs
  • // Use it to secure kills (fleeing, low enemies)

// I always follow this order, i max out Arcane Shift first because i use it a lot for evading ganks and securing kills. second, i max Mystic Shot its great for harassing,kiting, and last hitting minions. lastly i max Essence Flux, i max this out last because i feel it isnt much use until later game.

// Main damage source.

// When built with a good amount of AP, Lichbane makes your auto-attack do 75% of your ability power! Thats great for getting that extra push in attacking.

// I grab this because Ezreal gets focused alot in teamfights, the active you get from Zhonya's can save your life or give you some extra time of survival in critical team fight moments.

// I love this item, 500 HEALTH and 80 ABILITY POWER. its everything Ezreal needs for his squishy-ness and at the same time, give him extra damage. The passive slow also can pull some kills!

// Magic penetration to increase burst damage.

// Magic pen for EXTREME burst damage, increase move speed. i usually enchant with distortion so i can have flash earlier when its on cooldown, enchant with Furor if you prefer more aggresive.
