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 Ezreal build focuses on mobility in team fights, and kiting enemies with lots of damage. This mobility comes from Trinity Force's passive (Rage), The Furor enchantment on the berserkers greaves, and the passive on the Blade of the Ruined King. Ezreal is a fantastic champion who is capable of tons of damage.
Base attack speed is 2.0 with no stacks on Ezreal's passive. With five stacks on ezreals passive his attack speed is 2.5. 2.5 attack speed is the cap for league of legends.
I am new to the forums and this is my first guide, so please be nice and leave helpful feedback so I can improve as a summoner.
Get sheen early to maximize damage output. Ezreal relies on his abilities to do damage. Each ability case should be followed up by an auto attack. Sheen adds extra damage to these basic attacks.
Why BT b4 TF?
If you build the TF 1st your damage will be much lower than with the BT. With higher damage it is easier to secure a kill. Having the BT allows your mystic shot to do massive damage. One well place mystic shot on a fleeing carry will most defiantly mean a kill.
Rage gives you +20 movement speed when you land a basic attack or spell, and +60 movement speed for a kill. Minion Kills count.
The Furor Enchantment basically does the same thing except the movement bonus is +12%! This is applied on hit for your spells and auto attack.
The Blade of the ruined king's passive STEALS 30% of the targets movement speed on hit. This is only applied for auto attacks and ez's Q.
Pros / Cons
Your E is a free flash
Easy to re-position
Tons of damage early
Buffs teammates Atk Spd with W
Lacks wave clearing, except for ultimate
This build is squishy as hell
Support and Composition
In general the compositions go as follows. Poke>Burst>Sustain>Poke Ezreal is a Burst/Poke champion, so a Burst/Poke bot lane composition complements him very well.
If they focus sona you can burst them down. Make sure Sona has her Atk Dmg aura up.
Leona is an all in champion with 2 stuns and alot of armor. Her armor helps you poke at the enemy team
Soraka: Sustain/Poke/Burst mixed
She gives you health and mana
Masteries focus on dealing as much damage as possible. In early game you are extremely squishy.
Having mana regen runes allows you to spam your Q.
This allows you to secure minion kills and push your lane from under your tower.
Ganks!! Watch the Ganks!!
Determine which buff the enemy jungler is starting at. If he is starting at top buff he will be in your area around 3:30. Have a ward in river at 3:30! If you know their jungler is starting bot (because their bot lane shows up late to lane) then you are most likely safe until around 6 minutes.
The same thing applies to your jungler. If he is starting top then he will be available to gank for your lane around 3:30.
If you are up against a tough bot lane comp have your jungler start top and gank for you first. Just showing up is enough to scare them away. It is not necessary to go all in and get wrecked. (2cs > dead Ezreal)
Enemy Bot Lane:
Keep an Eye on top and mid lane to predict where their jungler will be. If your top is pushing really hard you can expect their jungler to be heading towards top.
Early Game (Laning Phase lvl 1-9)
Health pots keep you in lane longer.
Focus on farming early and keeping minion wave in the neutral position.
Use Q primarily to secure minion kills & take out 2 minions in rapid succession.
Stop when mana drops below 50%
Never use your W, it eats mana.
Pick up your W around lvl 7/8. Only use W for additional damage in ganks, or to secure a kill through minions.
