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 is just a modification to Duff's "REAL Ryze" build (link here).
I just took the idea/philosophy of that build and modified the items/masteries/runes in a way that I thought works better for the said build.
It's not an ideal build, it's just a sum of proposed changes to an existing build in order to keep the philosophy the same, but modify the items/masteries/runes in a way that I thought was better. I didn't do any research on it other than the thoughts that came to mind while typing my response on the comments to the original build(at the bottom of this page) and I don't aim to either go in depth with it or claim it as my own build, it's just that: some modifications that I think would work better for a certain build that I didn't agree with.
Items that I didn't choose or masteries or stuff are all limited by the original build limitations and I didn't wanna change the basic idea. Also just read my post on the page 3 for the specifics on the modes.
Again if you want information on how to play this build visit the original guide by Duff since he both covers this and I'm a bad player and can't really suggest much on how to play, I'm just good with numbers and could only contribute in this area with my suggestions.

-15% magic pen(Archaic knowledge)
-Active AOE speed for 3 seconds
Comments: The magic pen difference( static vs archaic knowledge) means that my modified build will be more effective against enemies with ~180 or less magic resist and if you add the increased damage output of the spells due to the larger mana pool(not much, like 14-15 points more damage before resistances) the increased life and survivability from extra hp, armor and life regen and the similar active ability( slow on enemies vs speed on allies) I think that my modification sums up to be the better one for this kind of gameplay for Ryze.
