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.
My name is Pietra69. I am 1700 elo player (west).
Today I will tell you how to play Ezreal.
Ezreal is my favourite ad carry so I thought that will be good if I share my experience with him.
To master Ezreal you need to hit all of your skillshots. If you are not able to hit your q in target, don't even pick him.
His playstyle is very similar to
He is not typical right clicker Ad.
You need to hit your skill then autoattack and run (It's called: kiting. It is possible only because of your Trinity Force's slow) Repeat this step if any enemy is still alive.
He is not very hard champion to play but you need a bit of knowledge to use his full potential.
It's my first guide on mobafire so forgive me my mistakes :D
So lets start...
Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Another short part of my guide. I use that masteries for all ad carry champions.
Summoner's Wrath - gives us 5 ap and 5 ad when we use our ignite. We got this ap and ad till our ignite is on cd.
Brute Force - easier last hits, more dmg to harras enemy
Alacrity - more atack speed always helpfull...
Weapon Expertise - we need armor penetration to kill tanks faster
Deadliness - some more ad always helpfull...
Lethality - nice boost to our crit dmg from Infinity Edge+ Trinity Force
vamprism - it will give to us a bit of sustain
Sunder - again, more armor penetration! We need it very much!!!
Executioner - it will help us kill people faster whenever they got less than 40% hp
Hardiness - less dmg from enemy ad
Resistance - ???
Durability - as ad carry some hp is always helpfull because we are squishy from nature
Veteran's Scars - MORE HP !!!
I think this two spells fits the best Ezreal's playstyle:
Ignite help us to get kills early and flash will help us to run away from any dangerous situation...
Other good possibilities:
Pick cleanse if you know since champion select that enemy team got a lot of crowd control.
I personally don't reccomend to use heal spell because 99% enemy Ad's are always picking ignite and it reduces hard our heal. Nevertheless heal can save us in many situations in late game.
On Ezreal i max :
- I think i dont have to tell why i max it first... Fantastic aoe global ulti. It can help us to finish off people or it can be used as initiator of team fights ( remember to hit as much enemies as you can because of your passive ).
- main source of dmg. Our best poke ability. Nice range and nice dmg. Each hit decreases other skills cooldowns. Each hit applies on-hit effects (lifesteal and slow from Trinity Force)
- our second dmg ability. It was op when it slows enemy ad carrys attack speed but now it's not. Still a great buff to allies.
- It's our defence ability. It's working same as Flash. REMEMBER! It is intended only as a defence ability!!! Never E in teamfight if you are not 100% sure that you won't die !!!
Items-general & details
Other items that can work:
Build example 1 (standard):
Build example 2 (vs hard focus Infinite Duress Nether Grasp etc.):
Build example 3 (If U need more mres vs champions like LeBlancetc.):
Build example 4 (if enemy dont buy armor):
Build example 5 (vs hard cc Enchanted Crystal Arrowetc.):
Detailed build (how to start etc.):
I always start with and 3 . No matter if I play with sustain support or not. Boots of speed will help me with evading enemy skills (for example ) and potions will give me extra sustain. We need to farm as much as it is possible. Our first back to shop should be when we got 1400 gold. For that amount we can afford double and . After that we rush as fast as possible our . I start building it from , then I follow up with and at the end with . I buy phage faster because it gives possibilities to kite enemies and it gives some hp. Trinity force incredible increases our dueling and kiting potential. After that feel free to upgrade your boots. I recommend two boots choices: or .
We build mercury's treads if in the enemy team is a lot of cc ( etc.) If enemy team got no cc buy berserker's greaves.
Next items I buy are situational items. When the enemy team is too tanky and I do like 0 dmg, then i buy as quick as possible. If armor penetration is not needed i buy . With that item i can kite more efficiently. Also hits with q restores our hp. After those two items I usually buy or defence item like . With full build we can crit squishy enemies for 1300 or more if we got luck.
