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.
Exhaust - makes enemies blind, slows them, also with my masteries, it last longer and reduces their armor and mr by 10
Teleport - because warwick was on rotation, and i knew i would be laning alone and it is necessary to reduce down time.
alternate summoner spells
Ignite - If you are going to grab this, take a point out of the utility tree and stick it in improved ignite. Great against people who heal/regen and for finishing people off.
Rally - great for helping the team, once again, if you plan on using this, stick a point into improved rally.
Buy a mekki pendant and 2 health pots.
Run to your lane and stay by the tower while you wait for minions. Once the minions arrive, WAIT a good distance away until you see the enemy champions. The last thing you want is to start the game by giving your enemies FB and making you miss precious xp. You're going to want to spam mystic shot, use it to either finish off a minion or harass an enemy champion. This spell is cheap in the beginning so, feel free to use it. I would try not to let your mana go below 60% though, in fear of a gank or if you have harassed an enemy champion enough to kill them. If that happens, you'll probably be around level 4 and you can easily just arcane shift in, use essence flux, attack/exhaust/ignite/mystic shot, whatever you need to get the kill. (e--->w--->q--->summoner spells)
When you go back to town, pick yourself up a pair of boots of speed, and a philosophers stone. depending on the enemy champions, and if you have the money, grab merc treads (if they have stuns/slows/casters), if not, get beserkers or swiftness, which ever you prefer. Teleport back to your lane, or into another lane to assist in a gank.
*if you are 6 and have trueshot barrage, you can use it to take out enemy champions very easily. This ability is truly something else. Its like ashe's ulti, except its a wave of damage that diminishes with each unit it hits. If you aim for a champion with only a few minions in front of it, you'll take the champion down about 30% of its hp. this can also be used to farm.
By this time, team fights will be starting soonish, so heres where i should go over essence flux. I personally feel its better to keep my allies alive, than damage enemies. So, that is your first priority. typically i was able to get it to hit 2 allies and an enemy champion or 2. The spell is a wave much like his ulti, but its width is about 3-4 minions and has good range.
Anyway, back to the game. Keep farming and assisting the team. Your next priority is getting the sheen and trinity. Sheen is amazing on Ezreal because mystic shot procs it, and its damage applies to whatever mystic shot hits (because it is a physical attack). This also means that phange, frozen mallet, and lizard man slow effects can apply to mystic shot. (because we are getting trinity, frozen mallet is kind of pointless). When killing a tower, make sure to hit minions with mystic shot to keep your passive up. It can amount to 75% increased attack speed which is great for killing towers. When you can, get a rageblade. This will work very well with ezreal, because he is utilizing all the effects: AP, AS, and Attack.
After this, you can kind of just do what you want item wise. Get more AP/cd reduction if you want to be healing your team or assist in dps by getting items such as infinity edge, black cleaver, or starks/bloodthirster.
-Early game, mystic shot is dirt cheap and amazing for harassing and last shotting minions. Make sure you are patient if you're going 1v2. You will get your revenge.
-Arcane shift can be used to escape or chase, and if running away, spamming mystic shot at enemies will reduce its cooldown and allow you to escape.
-Sheen, frozen mallet, phange, and lizardman can apply to mystic shot.
-Essence flux is an amazing offensive AND defensive spell. Try to maximize its use by hitting your own dps, and the enemies dps with it, as well as healing your teammates after team battles, and during tower pushes.
-Trueshot Barrage has a very short cast time of 1 second, you can use it for a burst of damage, hit the enemy with it, arcane shift in, essence flux, mystic shot, and burn them. It can also be used to help teammates across the map, farm minions killing a distant tower, or kill runners.
-Ezreal is best as a team oriented champion I have found.
