Knowledge is a real weapon
Getting Smashed by AP
Ryze is an easy to learn champion that can be extremely powerful if used by players that are experienced in his use. In this guide I want to help new players learn how to play Ryze effectively and get them in a position to master his mechanics without having to expirement, whilst still maintaining a relatively short read time. If you want to check out an in depth guide check out SecondCaller's guide here . It is the probbaly the best most in depth guide for any champion ever. So make sure to give it a read later or now.
Your should be able to win trades because of your low cooldown e and your q passive. After getting tear of the goddess you can farm with your abilities if you feel you'll lose cs otherwise because of the boost to your mana.
Using two e's before engageing means that your next q will give you a shield and speed boost. Always make sure you have this unless going in for the kill in which case it might be better to pick it up quickly.
In teamfights your ultimate is an extremely strong ability that can allow you to set up pincer arrangements and others. A pincer arrangement is when once or two of a team go to the other side of the other team. This decreases the power of burst damage and aoe cc. However this can also isolate some squishies so be liberal with it's use. Make sure to use w for peel on your carries or yourself and to catch any squishies.
Ryze is a high damage mage with amazing teamfight potential who can easily 3v1 if he is ahead.
