How To Ezreal

Introduction



NOTE THIS BUILD IS IN THE MAKING AND WILL BE FINISHED ASAP. PLEASE COMMENT ANY SPELLING MISTAKES OR IDEAS TO MAKE THIS BETTER. Hello fellow Ezreal players. Welcome to my very first MobaFire guide. My name is Tomlad and I've been playing lol for some time now and i just thought i would make a guide on one of my favorite champions. This build really does work and its 100% Legit. I have played over 300 games as Ezreal and I've never done this good with him until I used this build. For some reason it just works perfectly for his kit but how about we start this guide and kick some solo que gluteus maximus.

Summoner Spells



Barrier: Ezreal Main Target early game isn't kills so i don't run ignite plus barrier helps me survive many events where otherwise I would have died

Flash: Even though Ezreal has his own unique flash aka Arcane Shift it still helps with repositioning and escape.

Cleanse: I would really only take this if the enemy have a lot of stuns like Annie support



Ability Explanation



  • Rising Spell Force: Man I Love This Passive, Every Ability Ezreal Hits Gives him 10% increased attack speed for 5 seconds(stacking up to 5 times). This in 1v1s can mean life or death and in team fights it makes you put out such more damage. Use this ability to merc towers by hitting minions with Mystic Shot, Arcane Shift(only when you know enemies aren't near) and Trueshot Barrage
  • Mystic Shot (Q): Ezreal Main Damage Ability, and one of the best poking abilities in the game. With its low cool down and mana cost you can use it every now and then in lane to get farm or to poke the enemy adc which is why we will max it first. Always use it whenever you can when fighting but not enough to have enough mana for Arcane Shift
  • Essence Flux (W): Dont underlook this ability for it can be more useful then you think. Not only does it slow the attack speed of the enemy but also increases the attack speed of allies. This can change a team fight really well and when taking towers cast it on your allies for a quick free tower :p. Even though this ability is nice we will max it last for its lack in damage. Do not spam this in lane for it has a high mana cost.
  • Arcane Shift (E): This is Ezreal movement ability. it can be use to escape, kite, reposition, and damaging in game. Try to save it for when you need to get a kill or to make a quick get away. Not only is it just movement but it does quite some damage too. This is why we will max it 2nd.
  • Trueshot Barrage (R): This is his ultimate. It does a crack load of damage plus it gives you full stacks of attack speed from his passive when you hit minions/champions with it. Plus you can really merc towers in seconds when you Trueshot Barrage minions using the instant 5 stacks of attack speed on the tower. As a tip use Trueshot Barrage and try to hit as much enemies possible early in a team fight for the attack speed rather then try to skill shot someone running away.

Well of course you will want to max your ultimate first. Since we're going ad Ezreal we are going to max our biggest scalding ad ability with the lowest cool down which happens to be Mystic Shot. Our next ad ability is Arcane Shift and it does some decent amount of damage as well. And our last ability which scales of of ap will be maxed last only because on ad ezreal it is used as a as buff for your team and a as debuff on the enemy team.



Items


Item Sequence

Berserker's Greaves
1100

The Bloodthirster
3700

The Black Cleaver
3100

Last Whisper
1300

Trinity Force
3733

Guardian Angel
2400

Since Were Not colorblinded we will get berserker for the attack speed rather then cd from Ionian Boots of Lucidity

In order to get as much farm as you we can, doesn't it make sense to get life steal to stay in lane longer. This is one of Ezreal core item because his Mystic Shot gives life steal to Ezreal. Plus we will always have full stacks since were always farming right :P

Man this item is one of my favorites. Its so cheap for giving you cd,armor pen,damage and hp which is everything we need. Also later in the game if you get separated and your facing tanks… they will get killed very easily.

Another really good item. This gives you even more damage and armor pen. This with the The Black Cleaver it will end up shredding 60% armor pen after 5 continuos attacks. Even when you face an adc 1v1 the armor pen will still surprise the **** out of your opponent when they see their health dropping fast for no reason and it only cost you 2865 The Black Cleaver + 2300 Last Whisper = 5165 gold

This item is why Ezreal is god like late game. With the passive Sheen proc on his abilities it really does a lot of damage. It gives us all around stats plus the speed passive also helps with get aways and chasing. This is Ezreal core item and always will be.

Now that we have insane amounts of damage lets think about the best defense item. Guardian Angel is obviously the best pick for it gives you magic resist, armor, and the ability to come back to life after dieing. This can really come in handy for you can die but getting bursted by all their ultimates then enemy gets hurt then you come back to life and kick ***.



Teamfights


ahhh … now its time all the hard work we did to pay off. This is the part of the game where Ezreal becomes godlike. I can't tell you how many times games have been turn around because of what Ezreal does. When a team fight starts, ALWAYS be behind your tanks/team. Try to hit as much enemy champions with your ultimate and hit as many champions (allies and enemies) with Essence Flux. By now the enemy team will have a chunk of their health gone and their attack speed reduced. Keep on casting your Mystic Shot at the high damage targets but don't run out and get killed trying to do it. Its fine to just hit a tank with your Mystic Shot but try to get as much damage on high value targets like adcs or assassins. Save your Arcane Shift for when any champions try to jump on you or cc you.



Summary


Ezreal is one of the most hardest champs in the game but at the same time it can be the most fun. I really hope this guide helped you out and i will be adding more to it in the future. I am still taking ideas so please put it in the discussion and I will happly look over them. Yours truly,
Tomlad
