Introduction

Hello Summoners and welcome to my guide.
I'll try to show you, how you can build and use Ryze.

This is my first guide, so it can include some mistakes.

Please keep in mind to never rate a guide before trying it out first, unless you've already tried it.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

PROS

  • Ryze is very much fun to play :D
  • He bursts but has very short Cooldowns
  • His Abilities have a high range
  • With his Rune Prison it is easy to get rid of a chasing enemy
  • He is easy to build
  • You can use him as an Offtank, too
  • He is a Champion which is very good on the Mid Lane AND on the Top or Bot Lane with a teammate



CONS

  • Once he got focussed by more than one or two champions in a Teamfight, it is nearly impossible not to die
  • Earlygame on the Mid Lane, it is hard to play against a well-played and harrassing Brand, Lux, Karthus or Malzahar
  • You can't jungle with him
  • You won't win a game that you solo on the Top or Bot Lane


Guide Top

Runes

For this Guide i think these runes are good. Its a mix of AP / Mana
Because the specator patch edited ryze so that his ap + mana will push his skills

Runes

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

Greater Mark of Magic Penetration

Greater Seal of Magic Resist

Items

Core Itembuild

Item Sequence











Sorcerer's Shoes
1100

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Banshee's Veil
2450

Void Staff
2650

Zhonya's Hourglass
2900

This is my current Itembuild it works good, but you need to play ryze. And have alltime the blue buff.

Why I would buy this items!


This list could not be the best, but it works :)
look at Core Items for more information

Rylai's Crystal Scepter will give you Ability Power and Health. You will have a chance of 35 % (15 % AoE) to slow the enemys with your skills.


This boots are the best choice, right now. Because u need Magic Penetration .

On the one hand you will get 140 Ability Power and on the other hand an increase of Ability Power by 30 %.

This item gives you Magic Resistance and Health. In addition, you will get a shield, that blocks every 45 seconds a spell.

+40% Magic Penetration says everything. And 70 Ability Power more.

First you will get 120 Ability Power + an increase of Ability Power by 25%. But the best thing of this item is the passiv, when you activare it you wont die for 2 seconds.

Alternative Items

Item Sequence











Archangel's Staff
3100

Rod of Ages
2700

Banshee's Veil
2450

Rabadon's Deathcap
3800

Void Staff
2650

This is my alternative build when i want to play with ~4000 Mana & 300 AP


This boots are the best choice, right now. Because u need Magic Penetration .


After the recent patch its a good idea to buy some Ability Power. The staff will give you Mana / Ability Power and transform 3% of you max. Mana to Ability Power. Thats really awesome with Ryze

"Rod of Ages" is really import (My opinion), because you need some Health. And you will get a Bonus of Health and Mana for Archangel' Staff.


This item gives you Magic Resistance and Health. In addition, you will get a shield, that blocks every 45 seconds a spell.

On the one hand you will get 140 Ability Power and on the other hand an increase of Ability Power by 30 %.

+40% Magic Penetration says everything. And 70 Ability Power more.

Spell Combos

Basic Combo List


- Primary Burst Combo. Use for harassing/nuking.

- Your Burst Combo if the enemy is getting out of range.

REPEAT- Your combo for killing dragon/baron.
