Not Updated For Current Season
First - my name in LoL is not "NoWay" ;D I'm just using it on forums.
Well...I think there are a lot of Ryze's guides but i want to share with u one of my builds.
First - Ryze is great killer - all what he need is AP.
- huge damage
- snare skill
- additional ap from his ulti
- useless when ganged
- got big problem when silenced or stuned
- squishy (as almost every mage)
I use those items everytime i play as Ryze.
1. Mejai - always helpful, even if you are not getting a lot of kills - always have some assists.
2. Sorcerer Shoes - basic item. Only few times i bought Mercury Threads coz enemy team had 5 mages.
3. Rod of Ages - hp + mana + AP. It's good for a first item. Some of ppl want to get AP first but Ryze's ulti is enough for early game :)
4.Zhonya's Ring - huge amount of AP
5. Void Staff/Guardian Angel - VS grants ap and magic penetration good against tanks. Guardian Angel - if you have a lot of stacks and you are targeted often.
6. Rylai's Sceptre - additional HP + AP + slowing enemies
With this build i have always many kills - even if i lose.
Ryze is helpful in teamfights coz his AoE ulti.
One more thing.
Why Clarity? Coz i like to spam with my spell flux in early game. With magic penetration it's good harras. It's also good when u want to "last hit" creeps.
Ghost. Good for running away and for chasing enemies. Alternately i use Flash spell. Same pros.
What about runes?
Magic penetration is good for early and late game. With Sorcerer's Shoes and Void Staff it's really nice. Mana regen - for early game. It's not a lot but always something.
With 9 0 21 like this i have no problems during whole game. Don't forget about adding flash mastery if u choose those spell!
I like to play on lane mostly - 2x more kills if u are not ganging.
Spell flux as a first skill - harrasing enemies + last hits on minions. With Clarity u can spam it almost all the time.
Focus only on getting last hits, dont push too hard. It's good to have some champion with stun on ur lane. His stun + ur snare. U did ur combo, ur mate also, some basic attack and enemy's down. Snare skill is very important that's why u have to max it first.
Spell combo looks like:
Rune Prison + Ultimate + Spell Flux + Overload
Always try to catch ur enemy with Rune Prison, then Ulti! If u will activate Ulti first, they will just run away = WASTE. Cathing enemy close to turret is also great idea. Especially when they are diving ;)
Try to use ur spell flux in a place where it can bounce a lot. Use it on single enemy only when it's necesary. When u are using it 1v1 remember to be close to your target!
Overload for finishing.
Mid and endgame.
Wait for ur tank to initiate a teamfight. Keep always behind, when teamfight started - bang bang - u took half hp from almost all enemies. It's important to use ur ulti when opponents stick together. Won teamfight? Minimum 5 stacks for ur Mejai if not died. At this time u are able even to solo some squishies. Ryze's damage is a great help in teamfights. For example. Amumu stunned all enemies, ur comrades are fighting + u with ur ulti and AoE combo hits all of them. If u are focused and stick with ur mates = there's no way u will not be fed.
Every team have their own strategies, for me Ryze compare with all of them ;D huge AoE damage...Sweet. I always play as Ryze with 1 tank, 2 dps and other mage.
You have only to fit with ur combo in teamfights and rest will be easy :)
Good luck! Hope my build gonna help ya!
