INTRO: Hello everyone this is my first Build. Hope you enjoy it! I find playing Ryze extremely fun due to his Nuking abilities and being able to stun!This is just a little guide i wanted to make to help you all out there who want to play as Ryze!
Extremely useful in team fights
Ability to stun
Good nuking abilities
Good AOE ult with low cool down to take down creep mobs
Usaully the first person targeted to kill in team fights
Tips/Tricks to playing Ryze:
Ok when your choosing a lane you want to lane with a tank player such as Rammus, Shen, or Mordekaiser. People you do not want to lane against are Shaco, Teemo, Master yi. Always remember that to stay back from from enemy champions (unless your going to gank) due to the fact that Ryze is very Squishy and can die if silenced/stuned quickly. Play smart and don't run through towers to kill a guy (works 25% of the time and u will usaully die after u kill them) who has one bar left. The important thing is to show people that its your lane and if they try to take your lane it results in DEATH. Never use rune prison at the start of a 1v1 fight use Over Load and let them hit u a few times thinking they are going to win then u Rune Prison them and use your ult for AP bonus and Spell flux them. By the time you use Spell Flux your overload should be ready to use again and the fight should be yours.
Ok you want to first start out with Rune Prison reasons for that is if your team wants to do the 3v1 gank in the beg of game they can't run and because its your overall most useful spell. So you want to get rune prison then over load back and forth till lvl 6 and get your ult. After your ult you wanna get Spell Flux Twice. After that keep going Rune Prison and Overload with getting your ult when you can and then finish Spell Flux when Rune Prison and Overload is done.
The item build consists of more on Survivability more than AP. Near end game you can swap out Philosophers Stone and Brutalizer for Zhonya's Ring and Guinsoo's Rageblade that is if the game goes on that long.
Abilities: Haste and Exhaust
Rune Build: For your Runes go all out Ability Power.
Go Exhaust (to stop those Meele fighters in their path and to slow a runner) and Ghost (for that last run to one shot the runner)
Ending: Well i hope you enjoyed my first build and hope it helps you with Ryze alot more. Remember to comment and rate and tell me what you like and dislike! Thanks!
