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.
Why I am making this guide
NOTE THAT THIS GUIDE IS PURELY BECAUSE OF THE RECENT INACTIVITY OF HAWKKEN, THE CREATOR OF THE GUIDE THAT IM BASING THIS UPON.
I GIVE ALOT OF CREDITS TO HAWKKEN FOR MAKING THE MOST AWESOME GUIDE FOR RYZE OUT THERE <3
Also note that my english is not that good and if you do find that you can't understand something in this guide please leave a comment and I'll fix it :)
This is my first guide here on Mobafire and if you have read the first chapter you will know exactly why I'm making this guide!
Well, I should tell you a little bit more about myself. I love Ryze... Ryze was the first champion I have ever played and I learned the ropes with him pretty quick and although the previous nerfs I think he is still awesome and he is in my opinion the most fun to play mid champion there is.
So hope you enjoy my Ryze guide! Upvote if you like it, downvote if you don't... But remember to give feedback in the comments so I can change this guide to the better!
|Teleport is mainly useful for teleport ganks which can turn a teamfight or even the whole game around||Flash is a great spell either if you want to chase someone down and secure the kill or if you want to escape when being chased yourself.||
First few items
The idea of Ryze is to kind off stack him up as much as you can with mana and at the same time turning him slightly off tanky.
|Sapphire Crystal + 2x Health Potions Is a great start for Ryze since he gets that little starting damage to harrass.||
sight wardAlways keep your two mid bushes warded to keep yourself safe from ganks
What boots should I buy?
|Sorcerer's Shoes Are really nice if you want to get that extra little damage in and if the game is going in your favour.|
Combos is the most important thing when it comes to playing Ryze in my opinion. Much affected that he gets reduced cooldown on each ability cast it is very easy to do alot of damage with Ryze's combos.

This is the most used Ryze combo and you want to be using this as much as you can.

This combo can more or less take down a champions full hp.

This does alot of damage but takes a long time to do so if the opponent is not stunned or slowed they might get away before you can finish the combo.
Buy Tear of the Goddess as soon as possible. Casting spells while not possessing Tear of the Goddess should be considered wasteful!
Do not use abilities on minions early in the game. Save your abilities and mana for harassing your opponents, zoning and denying them their farm and experience.
Farm as much as possible, but do not steal minions from your teammates, especially when they tell you not to.
Use Overload every 4 seconds to build up your Tear of the Goddess as fast as possible, if you can afford spending that much mana.
You should always carry at least one Health Potion with you to counter Ignites, poisons and similar attacks.
When you have blue buff be very careful not to die as by doing so you not only die and give your opponents gold, but also buff them and significantly lower the survival chances of your teammates, especially if a good mana user gets the buff.
Learn Smart Casting! It is ideal for Ryze as all of his abilities require you to choose one specific target. This way of casting is also seriously faster and lets you spam abilities, which Ryze does throughout the entire game, at your will.
When you buy Sight Wards, buy only one and position it as soon as possible so that your opponents do not see your inventory while you are carrying this item.
Try to chill when you play as it is simply more fun than raging.
Once again I want to thank Hawkken which made all advice in this section! all credits to him!
