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 my simple item guide for Ryze. Ryze is a character that NEEDS mana. His Ability's even work off mana and I want to show you what items to maximize your damage.
The Skill Tree is just an example one, I use that one for all the cool down bonus and bonus exp. Mostly all the Util's.
Some items that I choose mainly boost mana A LOT. I would suggest that you start off with a mana gem. Upgrade that to a tear. The point of ryze is to get AS MUCH MANA AS POSSIBLE. You may be thinking "Why did you get Manamune?", I got that because it helps a lot at the begging of the game for farming. It also helps during end game due to the fact it add's 1 mana for every attack and 4 for every spell casted to a maximum of 1000 mana. That combined with Archangel's Staff gives you 2000 bonus mana which is 200+ damage on your spells! Amazing isn't it. I choose Trinity Force because usually by the time you get the money to buy this item the game is already over. I just threw it in because it add's mana, attack speed, and move speed and it's got a great Passive. By the time the end game comes around, each one of your spells should be doing 700+ and have 50-70% cool downs so you can spam like mad.
Pros / Cons
- Extremely powerful nuker end game.
- Usually gets first blood if you harass them enough.
- Extremely good stun that helps team mates.
- Can backfire a gank. I solo gank the gankers.
- Extremely Squishy early to mid game. Not much HP to take hits.
- Weak to stuns. When Ryze becomes stunned he's pretty much a sitting duck.
- Sometimes it's hard to farm properly.
