Spells

Just for an extra gapcloser, to chase opponents that move really fast like Hecarimor a Dr. Mundo with his ultimate on. Can also be used to escape situations u dont want to be in.

Everyone knows the feeling of somebody thats lucky, with First Blood or a Penta Kill. Simply set them on fire with an Ignite and no worries!

Actually basic for ADC, but Barrier saves lifes! I recommend u taking Barrier if u like it, or if u are new to a ADC, in this case Ezreal.

Skill Sequence

Ezreal's passive, Rising Spell Force, gives him 10% Attack Speed each time his abilitys hit an enemy champion. Stacks up to 5 times.

His Q, Mystic Shot is his main poke ability. Ezreal shoots a bolt of energy in target direction, applies on-hit effects. If it hits an enemy minion, monster or champion, all of Ezreal's cooldowns are lowered by 1 second. So, if Mystic Shot flys a long distance, this is also lowered in cooldown.

Essence Fluxis Ezreal's W. Ezreal fires a wave of energy to target area. This only hits enemy champions. It passes through all enemys in a straigth line (Unlike Mystic Shot, wich stops if it hits a target). Hitting a allied champion with this will increase their Attack Speed.

Ezreal's E is Arcane Shift. Ezreal blinks/teleports to target location, firing a bolt at the nearest enemy.

Trueshot Barrage is Ezreal's ultimate. After channeling for 1 second, Ezreal fires a wave of energy missiles in a straigth line accross the map. Note that it deals 10% less damage if it hits more targets, minimum 30%.

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
I recommend taking Mystic Shot first, taking your second skill point into Arcane Shift, because u can never know if u have to escape or need to chase somebody that is too far away, then i start maxing Mystic Shot and Essence Flux. I know a lot of people leave Essence Flux to 1 and leave it there untill the end, but it really does some nice damage. And of course alwayss Trueshot Barrage whenever you can.

Items


I recommend starting with Boots of Speed, 3 Health Potions and 1 Mana Potion.

First back u mosthly have enough to buy a Long Sword or a Vampiric Scepter. Sometimes u have enough for a B. F. Sword, if so do it.

are my Offensive Choices, and
are my Defensive Choices, wich i dont really use to often.

Provides more AD and does not require a inventory space. Why not pick it up when full build??

Personal Favorite Build




(My) Best Build Provides:


436 Attack Damage
1.11 Attack Speed (Passive can increase it)
370 Movement Speed
125 Armour
115 Magic Resistance

Good with Ezreal

1. Leona






Leona is an AMAZING support for Ezreal. With her high CC and her passive can she simply wreck somebody if u help her. When u see her go in with her Zenith Blade, use Arcane Shift (IF NEEDED!) and start spamming Mystic Shot and Essence Flux. If your target is low enough but they still manage to escape, use your Trueshot Barrage to deal the killing blow.

2. Sona






Sona can heal, give movement speed, poke and stun for you, or together with you. If you see her going in with Crescendo and then spamming Hymn of Valor, its time for you to go in. When they are still stunned use Trueshot Barrage and start spamming Mystic Shot and Essence Flux.

3. Soraka






Soraka has all that u need. She can heal, restore mana, silence enemys, heal again, and poke. She will, normally, constantly poke and irritate (im sorry, i have bad spelling) ur enemys with Starcall. If they are low enough, ask her to silence with Infuse and then its time for you to go in. Maybe is a simple Trueshot Barrage enough, if so do it.

4. Blitzcrank






Who isnt good with Blitzcrank?? With his annoying Rocket Grab, followed by Power Fist and Static Field can he simply destroy an opponent without they have time to actually do something. Our favorite, and only, steamgolem is a very cool and fun support to play with, but also to get supported by.

Weak To Ezreal

ADC's

1. Ashe






Ashe is a champion with High Slows and a stun. Even though she can pi*s you off very hard u counter her. Try to dodge her Volley and Enchanted Crystal Arrow. I recommend u training fast reflexes to use Arcane Shift to dodge a Enchanted Crystal Arrow from the moment its launched, so it won't hit for sure.

2. Jinx






Yes, Jinx is one of the strongest champions in the game, and guess what? You counter her! Avoid her Zap! and Arcane Shift her Super Mega Death Rocket! and you should be fine. If there are a lot of minions with low health standing close to eachother, she will probably use Switcheroo! and switch to her Bazooka/Rocket Launcher. This does cost mana, and a lot if she is using it for a while. If you can let her use this a lot, she won't have enough mana to use her skills, and that is the point where she is easy to catch.

3. Lucian






Lucian can be a big problem lately, but early is he easy to counter. As with all ultimates, use Arcane Shift to get out of range or dodge The Culling. With really quick reflexes u can even dodge Piercing Light. You should really focus Lucian, because he can wreck u, even though u counter him.

Supports

4. Thresh







Thresh is a little bit simmilar to Blitzcrank, as he can also pull you, even though this is slower u still dont want to be hit by it. Try to dodge his Death Sentence and Arcane ShiftOVER The Box. If you use it not far enough, u will hit a wall.

5. Blitzcrank






Blitzcrank is also weak to Ezreal. U may start realizing that Ezreal counters a lot of annoying enemy champions. When Blitzcrank manages to land a Rocket Grab, make sure to immediately use Arcane Shift. You must time this so fast that u already jumped away before he pulls u to him, so actually from the moment it hits. Rocket Grab costs half of Blitzcrank's mana early game, so if u can waste it with Arcane Shift, u will have a lead.


Guide Top

Strong To Ezreal

1. Draven






Draven is an incredibly strong champion. I recommend you NOT taking Ezreal against Draven, as he can simply destroy you if u get Stunned, Feared or Airborned. His combo is Spinning Axe, followed by Stand Aside, then some more Spinning Axe and if u can escape Whirling Death.

2. Caitlyn






Caitlyn is another champion to drop you down in a couple seconds. If you have to lane up against her, avoid Piltover Peacemaker and always warn ur mid, jungle and support for Yordle Snap Traps in bushes, but first avoid them urself. Once ur inside it, Caitlyn gains vision of you, allowing her to use Ace in the Hole. When versus a Caitlyn in ranked, ask your support to take Leona if she still can, because Ace in the Hole CAN be dodged, and if a tank does that for you, then you live and your support isnt hurt that much.

3. Graves






Graves is underestimated, but really strong. Buckshot at a higher level can do some nice damage to you. Try to dodge Buckshot and Collateral Damage whenever you can. When he manages to land a Smoke Screen on you, get out as fast as you can with Arcane Shift or simple movement. DO NOT Flash OUT OF THIS.

4. Miss Fortune






Miss Fortune is a champion with high movement speed and damage output. She can poke really hard and 1 Double Up Make it Rain Bullet Time combo can kill you. Always Arcane Shift out of Bullet Time. Dont attack her too much, but keep her passive down.
