Jax With Jax, all you need to do is poke him with your q and autoattcks when nothing's happening. If he goes in on you, try your best to e back and kite him.

Introduction

Welcome to my guide on a personal favorite of mine, tank Ezreal top. Just like my previous guide on ad Morgana mid, this build is cheesy, so buckle up my children.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes, you could go 3 ways. You could go full tank stats for the later game, damage stats for early game, or just find a balance you're comfortable with.


Guide Top

Masteries

With the new keystone masteries, you can steal an insane advantage in lane through a keystone called Grasp of the Undying. This is the first keystone in the resolve tree, and it will steal you (for a ranged champion like Ezreal) 1.5% of you maximum health from an auto attack every 4 seconds. To put that into perspective, if you can get an auto in every 5 seconds, you'll have stolen about 18% of your healthbar from your opponent. Obviously, that's easier said than done, but I think you get what I'm trying to say.


Guide Top

Farming

So for farming, all you need to do is farm with your autoattacks and you q. Be sure to poke out your opponent with your autoattacks and q also, and if they ever go in on yo, forget the cs and run.

Summary

Tank Ezreal top is my go-to counterpick against some kind of cancer pick like Nasus, Tryndamere, or just about any other melee top laner that isn't necessarily cancerous. The idea is that you exploit the fact that you're a ranged champion in a melee matchup, and have a mastery page that sets you up to outsustain your opponent, and have a kit that gives you an escape every 22 seconds or so. This gives you a natural advantage in lane.

Enemy goes in on you?
E away and kite them back.
Jungler ganks you?
E away and kite them back.
Enemy low on health and you want to kill them?
E in and kite them.
Nothing exciting is happening?
Farm normally with your q and sutoattacks and bully your opponent.

Tank Ezreal top shares a lot of the same fundamental mechanics as the classic Vayne top, or even Quinn top. Pretty much all you do is exploit your ranged vs. melee matchup, and if someone goes in on you, you just E back, or tumble back and condemn them away, or blind and punish them.

Thank you for wasting your time reading my guide on tank Ezreal top. This is overpowered, so play it. Goodbye.
