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.
Hello everyone! The main reason why i rewrote my Ezreal guide is because i have to admit, my previous one whasnt so good (and because somebody in the comment section told me). I made a lot more guides since the Ezreal one, so i learned much about guide writing. I really think this one is better, as i got a bit more experienced with Ezreal and BB coding, and i tried some items to see if they would fit on Ezreal or not. So with further a do lets move on to the guide!
A lot of people helped me to change and improve this guide, and i really want to say thanks to those, i respect all they done for my guide!
'Vynertje' told me to rewrite this, and i think hes right, thanks a lot Vynertje!
- Great Poke
- Low Cooldowns
- Team Steroid Ability
- Gapcloser Ability
- Can be built either AP or AD
- Works well with a lot of supports
- Hard To Master
- Needs items to be strong
- 3 Skillshots
For summoner spells, i recommend/prefer taking Barrier and Flash. Barrier can be replaced with Ignite. I prefer Barrier for the early shield wich DOES save lives, and Flash for an extra gapcloser. U could manage to replace Barrier with Ignite if you want to play Ezreal more agressivly.
For runes, i prefer to take Greater Seal of Armor, Greater Mark of Attack Damage, Greater Glyph of Magic Resist, Greater Quintessence of Life Steal and Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage. I think these are pretty good runes for Ezreal, and they are used by a lot of people to. The Armor and Magic Resistance help Ezreal survive a lot better early game, and the bonus Attack Damage is great for stronger poke, Ezreal's specialty. The Life Steal is very nice to have in the laning phase.
Ability Sequence and Explanation
I recommend maxing Mystic Shot right away, as this is Ezreal's main damage tool. As secondary option max Arcane Shift as the bonus cooldown helps making ur lane more safely, Essence Flux 3rd and of course whenever u can Trueshot Barrage.
Ezreal fires a bolt of energy that deals 35 / 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 (+1.0 per attack damage) (+40% of ability power) physical damage and applies on-hit effects. If it strikes an enemy unit it reduces all of Ezreal's cooldowns by 1 second.
Ezreal fires a fluctuating wave of energy at a targeted area. Any enemy champions it passes through take 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+80% of ability power) magic damage, while any allied champions it travels through have their attack speed increased by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 % for 5 seconds.
Ezreal teleports to a target nearby location and fires a homing arrow at the nearest enemy unit dealing 75 / 125 / 175 / 225 / 275 (+75% of ability power) magic damage. This CAN hit stealthed enemy champions like Twitch, Teemo, Evelynn,...!
Ezreal channels for 1 second to fire a powerful barrage of energy missiles, which deal 350 / 500 / 650 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) (+90% of ability power) magic damage to each enemy unit they pass through. However, it deals 10% less damage for each additional unit it hits (30% minimum damage).
Thanks to Retribution for editing my Sequence!
The thing above is a bit big, isnt it?
For starting items, i recommend a Doran's Blade, 1 Health Potion and a Warding Totem. These help Ezreal survive better early game, granting him more soustain and farm.
First Back Options
When going back, i recommend picking up Boots of Speed, a couple Health Potion and Mana Potions. If your having a lot of money, buy a B. F. Sword. When still having money left take Phage, Vampiric Scepter, Berserker's Greaves, or a Long Sword.
For Offensive Choices, choose some of these: The Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge, Trinity Force, Mercurial Scimitar, Last Whisper. Take what you prefer on Adc Ezreal, if u take all of them and no Defensive Items, then thats completely fine, i will just be an easy target.
In case you didnt go full offensive, Choose 1-2 of these Defensive Items: Frozen Mallet, Banshee's Veil, Guardian Angel or Iceborn Gauntlet. Again pick what you want to have as an Adc, but i'd recommend Iceborn Gauntlet and/or Guardian Angel
Example Final Build
For final build, i mosthly have Berserker's Greaves - Homeguard, The Bloodthirster, Trinity Force, Last Whisper, Mercurial Scimitar, Guardian Angel, Greater Stealth Totem, Elixir of Brilliance, and Elixir of Fortitude.
Thanks to Vynertje and Retribution for giving me a build tip!
Thanks to EdisonKhoo for the idea of this section and Retribution for giving me a little tip!
Having a really bad lane? Try rushing a Phage or Iceborn Gauntlet, just for the early defense. Mystic Shot applies all on-hit effects, so it also applies Life Steal, this can save your life if used correctly: When ur on low hp and getting chased start spamming Mystic Shot and ur chaser to deal damage and heal at same time, and if its not safe to do this do it on minions. This can also be used when ur on low health and pushed back from the lane, to heal up and farm on the same time.
