Introduction

Hello and welcome to R¥ze 101: Triple Sapphire!; a Ryze build guide of a different color!

I'm Gramps Tewks, and I'll be your curator as we explore the possibilities of playing with everyone's favorite Mana-powered machine-gunner and tireless reader/researcher!



Here's a look at a b-e-a-utiful Ryze Penta-Kill:

Please comment and rate in the comments section below; share your experiences playing with or against Ryze and/or put in your criticism about the guide itself.

Kudos to the incomparable JhoiJhoi for the template, which you can find here.

Onward, then!

Pros


+ Crazy (AoE) Damage!
+ Super-fun.

Cons


- Short(ish) range for a caster!



Ryze was my first real champion!
His machine-gun style of play is excellent and much more consistent than a burst-caster model.

I left him behind for a while, but he's seriously awesome and (for only 450 IP) certainly worth a shot!

Strength of Spirit is especially good with Triple Sapphire Crystals!
Sorcery and Intelligence will get you to a hot 39% CDR.
The AD Masteries improve your farmz, and Swiftness is a must-have!

Summoner Spells


Flash: Add Rune Prison for surprise takedowns!
An excellent escape to boot.

Teleport: Excellent for mid-laning!
Lets you be everywhere at once, pretty much.

Skill Discussion


  • Arcane Mastery: Show of hands; who likes casting ten spells real quick?

  • Overload (Q): More like OverKILL.
    8% of your max Mana powers this bad boy, and it has virtually no Cooldown when bursting!

  • Rune Prison (E): "Hold on a sec, I gotta nuke ya."
    Veeery, very good snare and damage spell!

  • Spell Flux (W): Not the greatest, but MR Reduction and AoE ain't bad.
    Throw it out early in your combo for maximum damage!

  • Desperate Power (R): Hilarious sustain with Will of the Ancients!
    Passive Mana is excellent, and casting it counts as an Arcane Mastery tick-down.



I prefer QREQWQ, but the sentiment is spot-on :D

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Rune Prison comes first for Level 1 fights, then Overload gets the nod for massive damage and Passive CDR! Finish Rune Prison for improved snare and damage, and finish with Spell Flux.
Grab Desperate Power at 6, 11, and, 16.

Items




Tribal Ryze looks pretty dang awesome, methinks.

Gameplay

Early-Game

Take mid lane: last-hit minions as much as humanly possible and tag your opponent with Overload!

If you can, catch your opponent off-guard with an Overload-> Rune Prison-> Overload combo!
After that, they won't approach you or your minions lightly again.

FARM.

Mid-Game

Ryze' Mid-Game begins when he's farmed out Glacial Shroud!

If you K.O. your opposition (and have over 1/2 health), go find a lane to gank and rack up some kills!
Push turrets, continue to farm, and help your teammates.

Late-Game

Play your Tanky/Mage/DPS role and facilitate some aces.
DESTROY the Nexus with your team!

Summary

I must admit, I'm spoiled on Karthus and Gangplank (with their Global Ults!) but Ryze is an insanely tough dude who can melt pretty much everyone!

He's only 450 IP and isn't Rune-dependent at all, so he's a great starter champ.
De pros also like him, so there's much to explore!

"I got these tattoos in Rune Prison!"
