Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This Ryze is used as a team player. For getting mass amounts of assists not large amounts of kills. The best way to use Ryze is by using his rune prison and then using overload and spell flux. If that does not finish the job then use the summoner spell ignite to finish it.The AP Ryze is more of a biuld twords annoying the oother summoners and damaging their chapmions for your teammates to kill them.Twords the end of the game you will want to sell dorans ring. After that you should buy the will of the ancients.[list=Best use of Ryze]
1. Use rune prison
2.use desperate power to get your other spells more powerfull
3. Use Overload for some extra damage
4.Use Spell flux to kill or do alot of damage to your opposing champion
5 If that does not finish off your enemy champion then use ignite
6 If all of those does do not work then stay a distance away from the other champion and do not get killed
7 Then all you can do is hope and pray that your fellow champions will finish the job for you.
Good luck using ryze!! :)
As for masteries yo will want to focus on utility able to damage them without getting yourself hurtand atacking. There is no need to waste mastery points on defense. Ryze is a ranged champion so if you can use him right you dhould not need to use defensive masteries for him.
You only need four different runes. As you see above all of the runes either focus on mana, ability power or damage. Yes this is all about doing lots of damage with Ryze. But you can do this with taking little damage. As long as you stay far enough away from your enemy you should be able to do damage to your enemy without taking to much damage.
Ryze's pasive ability is arcane mastery;When Ryze casts a spell, all other spells have their cooldown reduced by 1 second. This is very helpfull when trying to spam another champion and get that kill you have been waiting for.
1. Best nuker with massive dps
2. Has snare,great for getting assists and kills
3. Spell Flux bounces dealing masive amounts of dps
4. Overload, great finishing spell with damage linked to your mana and AP
5. Desperate Power is a great AP boost along with AoE damage
2. Being silenced is a major downfall
3. Almost always targeted first
Early Game Strategy:
Ok so if your going to gank make sure they there are 2 of them next to each other or stand next to them using spell flux, at level one this is alot of damage, as long as you have a teammate with you the enemy wont last. Now if they are runnign and its by themselves and they have 25% hp and u think u can take them with spell flux yoru wrong because it wont do that much damage with one bounce i mean if they have low hp u might as well give it a try but conserve your mana, once you get a catalyst and sorc shoes and hit lvl 3-5 area you can start dealign massive amounts of damage and your enemy wont last unless of course they are a tank. even early game a tank cant defend it yet until they item upgrade.
Spell Combo for lvl 3-5:
1. Spell Flux
2. Rune Prison- make sure you get this of within a second of casting spell flux
4.Spell Flux- even if this one is necessary
Ok now that you have your ult and AP and magic pen you can really get down to business.
But keep in mind that you need to get your zhonyas so dont get greedy and tower dive if you think you can kill them. Make sure that if you can stay by a teammate or preferably a tank so he can taunt them so you dont get ganked because in a 2v2 or 3v2 they will shut you down first.Plus if you have your Deathfire Grasp your gonna really dominate. if your looking to kill a solo and they are a semi squishy character, you can do it with this, use your deathfire grasp, then desperate power,then spell flux then rune prison then overload and if you can get another spell flux off again if its even necessary.
5.Spell FLux again if you can
Late Game Strategy:
Now that you have Zhonyas your set but still get rylais scepter lol. i never use zhonyas acitve but sometimes its helpful. if your in the middle of a gank you might want to actiavte it, it will save you. just make sure not to waste it and that while its active you cant move or attk, just remember that. once you have zhonyas and rylais your build is complete unless you want to swap items out and do whatever but that would be a long match.
Also for alot of the new players, remember to sell dorans ring once you need an upgrade and dont have the room.
Same spell combo as mid game unless you want to switch it up and do rune prison first.
What to do, what to aim for:-Play Smart, avoid getting Ganked.
-Get as many Kills & Assists you can.
-Get a lot of AP, Mana and Golem buffs.
-Don't die, especially with Mejai's Soulstealer.
