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.
Ryze is one of the best nuker's in the game and can be used as a stealth attack out of the bushes or long grass in the game. It is very effective against any champion's, besides tanks. (Too much health!)
-Best Nuker Champion in the game
-Far range capabilities to reach targets further than most champions
-Slow targets down with Rune Prison when they are chasing you
-Spell Flux can bounce off of you if you are close enough to target, causing more bounces to hit your enemy
-Easy to be killed by tanks
The Ryze...is one of the best champion in the game...you just have to know how to use him. Hide in bushes and tall grass to ambush champions with the element of surpise. Also, coordiate with your teammates and plan out when to go and ambush their side of the map by going through the jungle shortcuts to make them never see what hits them. Ryze is a good teammate by helping out lower levels farm, and also gank the gankers in the game. First, you should click:
-And Overload to finish the target off.
**If the champion doesn't die, either chase if no turrents are around and use ghost or go back and wait for a right time for another abmush.**
Usually go first with the Sapphire Crystal because mana helps ALOT because you're a mage...all you use is mana based abilities. Also pick up two health potions because these potions help alot especailly when you're about to finish off the enemy but barely have enough hp to even go through the group of minions. After you reach level 6, head home and buy the Tear of Goddness. Like last item, mana based items are good blah blah blah. At this level, you can successfully ambush champions through the jungles and kill them with one shot. Also, keep in mind the mini map and always look at the enemy champions and their health and when they're low in hp, go in for the kill with one blast. Easy as that, enjoy kicking ***!
