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.
Intro (Skillz = Kills!!!!)
Whats up everybody! I'll make this short and sweet. This is the strongest, dare I say best, Ezreal guide you will find on the web. I have spent many nights and days looking for guides and builds that allowed my skill with ezreal to reach its full potential. But alas, i found none... So i experimented night and day for months and developed my own unique play style that best utilizes ezreals Q ability to poke chunks out of the enemy team and dominate early game, which will help you dominate late game. And I know what your saying, "ezreal sucks late game!" Ya he dose the way most people play him but not me. Like it says, "skillz = kills". My play style is a little risky for someone who doesn't know ezreal like the back of their hand. If your not on a pro level then STOP READING THIS NOW!!! Either go practice or read some noob guide.
Pros/Cons, What cons?
Owns bot or mid lane
Pumps out damage early game
Amazing across the map ult!
Hes a character that separates the men from the noobs. You'll only be good with him if you deserve to be.
These spells with maximize your damage and get you more kills
Its extra damage. Simple as that
With the mastery, it lowers the enemy's armor reduces their damage. This will rack you up kills early game. You can beat ANY champ that uses auto attacks if you exhasut them. That means Xin, Jax, Gangplank, Trydamere, any ad carry(bot domination), etc.
These spells are so deadly when you use them together. Lets say its you and soraka bot against an ashe and sona. Land a couple Q's on ashe unil shes at 3/4 health then arcane shift to her and use your spells. Shes not going anywhere or doing any damage, just taking it like a *****. If she flashes away, finish her off with another Q. FIRST BLOOD!!!
Some take flash instead of exhaust but my question to them is would you rather run away or get a kill??? The choice is yours.
Runes ARE Important
The combination of armor pen and damage will give you a little more damage than if you just had one or the other. I recommend these on any ad carry.
Ezreal is an ad carry so that means you will be bot fighting another ad carry. Armor protects you from physical damage so these runes are a must!
I like to get magic resistance in case the enemy support likes to harass like Nunu and his ice ball or Sorakas W. CD reduction runes would be better for late game but best foot forward i always say. So long as your not wasteful, the mana from your masteries is sufficient enough so you don't need mana glyphs.
Same thing as the marks. Maximized damage and what not.
Just like any ad carry, you'll want as much damage as possible so i put 21 points in offense. Put 3 points in armor since your bot. I put the last 6 in utility for the extra mana and mana regen. Pretty simple.
Its all about the Q baby!
Ezreals ki blast is the best harassing skill in the game I think. With a brutalizer early game, his q can take away fractions of health and it has a low cool down so feel free to harass like a mother. With the full build his q does 925 damage!!!!! That's a **** load of damage foe a move you can spam every 5 seconds from across the screen.
Essence flux? More like essence sucks. 80 magic damage O WOW! What a waste of mana. If riot gave him a W that was actually useful, he would be just too good and banned every game
Save your instant transmision! If you dont have to use it to kill then don't. This is your flash. Save it to escape if someone jumps on you in a team fight, and believe me, they will.
Your Big Bang Attack isn't just a strong spell that can do huge damage to an entire team or snipe someone. Its great for farming or pushing other lanes your not in. Every 60 seconds you get free gold!
This is how you play ezreal. Poke them down with your ki blasts then use instant transmision to get close, use exhaust and ignite, and unload on there ***. If they some how live just snipe them with a big bang attack. Initiating with Big Bang also works.
