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.
With the nerfing of Ezreal's support abilities and AP ratios, AD focused builds are becoming more mainstream. This guide aims on maximizing Ezreal's potential as a damage dealer/carry through an Attack Damage build, and also helps you to become a better player through various tips and strategies in gameplay.
Ezreal is a pure skill shot hero, meaning all his skills rely on user aim. He is a very mobile champion that has high damage potential with an AD build.
AD Ezreal differs from traditional pure carry/DPS champions (Ashe, Tristana, Twitch, Warwick, etc.) in a few ways:
(1) Ezreal lacks any kind of natural CC.
(2) Most of Ezreal's damage comes from his Mystic Shot spell, besides auto attacks.
(3) His damage output is reliant on the player's accuracy with Mystic Shot as well as having a clear path to the target. Which means his damage output can vary greatly depending on the situation, such as in messy team fights where he is unable to focus fire. However, given ideal circumstances, AD Ezreal has among the highest raw DPS output coupled with the ability to kite effectively.
2- Pros / Cons
What are the advantages of playing Ezreal, and more specifically an AD build?
High damage output and sustainability
Very good at kiting
Excellent harassing abilities
Combos deal quick burst damage
Has an escape skill that works even when snared
Strong passive is utilized
Good farming capabilities
Not item dependent
Low health (like most carries/damage dealers)
No natural CC
Damage output relies on user skill and situation
3- Working in team
As a ranged carry/damage dealer, Ezreal is a viable candidate for mid lane. His mystic shot ensures that he can still farm with relative ease regardless of enemy harassment. However, that does not mean he should always take mid.
In determining whether you should go mid, consider your team's champions.
-Champions that can make use of a faster global ultimate (Twisted Fate, Karthus, etc.)
-Champions that can utilize the leveling advantage over side lanes to bolster their ganking abilities (Nidalee, Annie, Katarina, Tristana, etc.)
-Champions that can quickly push down the mid tower (Sivir, Mordekaiser)
Higher priority champions should take mid over Ezreal. As for similar priority champions, this is where user skill, team composition, and the opposing mid champion comes into play in determining who should take mid.
If you are going to dual lane, try to take the bottom lane so that you can ward dragon and the path to blue golem. Since Ezreal is not item dependent, he is a good choice for buying wards for the team.
Ezreal is extremely good at kiting, especially with his long range Mystic Shot. You should utilize his ranged advantage to its full extent by keeping your distance whenever possible. A well played Ezreal rarely dies a lot because he is hard to catch and kill.
AD Ezreal functions as a damage dealer in teamfights. However, you should not immediately engage until after your tank/initiator and fighters do.
Engage the fight without using arcane shift if possible. Instead, save it so that you can blink into a high priority target's face and DPS him to death. Or use it to escape if the fight isn't going your way. Arcane shift has a long enough cooldown that makes it unlikely that you can blink out in time if you blink in and get focused down.
EZREAL PLAYING WON'T DEPEND ON THE ITEMS OR ANYTHING THIS BUILD JUST HELPS ALITTLE, BUT IT WILL DEPEND ON YOUR FEELING ABOUT PLAYING WITH EZREAL , Enjoy :)
