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.
Ezreal is an amazing ADC there has been points when he's been at the top and points when he's been at the bottom but always seems to keep up. Ezreal is in a high tier spot because he is working well with most champions. When Ezreal keeps up with the game and snowballs he is awesome for late team fights and is a big attribute to the team. But when Ezreal is behind and is struggling its hard to pick your dead weight back up.
I use the crit chance and crit damage on Ezreal because it correlates with his Mystic Shot. The high early damage you build with your Mystic Shot is nice because the basic attack after has a high chance to hit stacking nice damage. The early armor pen is also nice which can also help late game due to tanks.
Flash and Barrier are the best for ezreal cause it gives you a second flash for Ezreal to escape easily and Barrier is used on Ezreal for when and ADC needs protection when champions start to split or when you need to get away by a hair!
Ezreal is a strong ADC when it comes to taking on other ADC's who have a bit of range like caitlyn,ashe,tristana, ect. When playing Ezreal it is really easy to position your self in team fights because his mobility is so high thanks to his Arcane shift on top of the Flash you take as your summoner spell. Ezreal also has great burst damage if you can land your skill shots successfully in the sequence posted up top. Ezreal is an awesome ADC and brings lots of excitement and clinching moments to the Fields of Justice.
In ranked play its important with Ezreal to keep your farm up always be looking for opportunity's to last hit the minions, this way your gold income is fair early and mid game to afford the items you want. Also keep an eye out for jungle as in ranked they gank frequently setting you back on farm and time lost in lane leaving your opponent to pass you by in strength,gold, and level experience.
Pros / Cons
Ezreal has high mobility
Great burst damage
Long range skill shot
Passive attack speed when spells are used

Make sure your placing you self in good spots in team fights to clearly focus who you need to and burst who the team needs bursted. Ezreal works well with most champions so secure kills and earn gold.
Farming is key when playing ADC because it keeps your gold up high so you do not have to spend on a budget, it allows you to purchase the items you please and keeps you up in the game by putting you ahead in levels and your maximum gold count. Also make sure to use your Q a lot as it is a key component when farming!
