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 guide will show you how to play Ezreal, even though the title says so he isn't really an easy champion at all, you have to be able to hit your skill shots or else you will just fall apart. Also you are VERY squishy so make sure that you keep a safe distance and be careful around opposing champions like Jax. This is my first guide, sorry I don't have many pictures or anything to make it look fancy, just a wall o' text.
Pros / Cons
Great at mid.
Can also lane with a partner well.
With flash has amazing escape abilities.
Ult is amazing at sniping out low champs.
Your Q is a devastating nuke to squishys.
Squishy as heck.
CC dominates you.
You will be targeted first in a lot of situations.
Hard to land Skill Shots sometimes.
Your E can om nom nom on your mana early game.
He has no real way of slowing besides trinity force.
For my masteries I go heavy into Offense with the armor and magic resist in defense because you are squishy and the last point into Teleport because it just works out.
ALWAYS get your Q and ult when you can, when you cannot get your Q or ult get your E, save your W till later, it doesn't do much damage and is only good for the attack speed slow later when there are a lot of team fights and champions are next to eachother.
For my runes I get armor pen, attack damage, and mana regen, all of these are areas that are really the core of this build, change them to be more defensive if you find yourself being too squishy though.
The item sequence can change A LOT depending on your team here's what else I would recommend.
Heavy CC- get Merc Trends.
Heavy AD- get Thorn Mail.
Heavy AP- get Force of Nature
If they have people with Surpessing ults- Quicksilver Sash (it disables ALL debuffs)
A lot of runners- get Hextech Gunblade
just aren't putting out enough damage- Get Infinity Edge
You can also substitute a lot of other items in depending on your preferences, my guide is just meant to direct you in the path of your purchases, don't always follow it word from word.
I get Flash and Teleport, Flash for crazy acrobatics and Teleport because sometimes you need to get to spots very fast.
Other Spells I would recommend are: Exhaust, Ghost, Ignite, and heal, these will work but Flash and Teleport are my favorite
All in all, Ezreal is an amazing champ that can and will lead the team lots of times, he takes practice but he is an amazing champion when mastered. Following this build I have only gone negative once and I have only gone Even twice, every other game I have gone positive. Hope you have fun playing Ezreal and any comments of advice you want to give me please post in the comments.
