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.
this is the guide to Ryze unfortunatly there is one error on this guide for you to be made aware of and thats the HP5 stat i shall up what it should be in this area
hp5 = 14.25
add mastery perseverence (14.25 *1.03) = 14.67
add strenght of spirit (4901 /100)+14.67 = 63.68
so (and as long as my sum's are correct) gives ryze a health regen of 63 hp5
anyone who can correct me if my math's is wrong please inform me thankyou
The Rogue Mage The halls of traditional study were never for Ryze, who felt a more raw and primal connection to the magic of Runeterra than those who tried to teach him. As a young man, he travelled the world, seeking the wisdom of powerful hermits, witches, and shamans. When he had learned all he could, Ryze turned to seek the lost, forgotten, and forbidden knowledge in the world. This led him to an ancient form of spellcraft known as thorn magic. This art required Ryze to tattoo spells on his body, infusing his being with vast arcane power. His travels also brought him to the giant indestructible scroll he carries on his back. The purpose of the inscribed spell is a secret only Ryze knows. However, he claims it is an abomination, something that he must safeguard from the world. Today, Ryze has joined the League of Legends to study the magical creatures and powerful will-workers that fight there, in order to complete his exploration of mystical Runeterra.
''There is no doubt. Ryze is no longer a mage - he has become a creature of magic.''
this is not a carry!!
this is the most important this to note about this build if you want to be a glass cannon and attempt to carry a team i suggest one of 2 things read someone else's guide or play a carry champ this one sentence really should explain why there are what some would call defensive runes and a slight fling with the defencive tree.
this is what ryze is all about by having the ability to root and lower magic res and being about to pump out enought damage to be of use in team fights. with the majority of ryze attack power comming from mana this makes the short trip into the defencive tree pay off (however the builds do not show this) this is due to one of the most recent patch
League of Legends v18.104.22.168
Fixed a bug where the Strength of Spirit mastery didn't include mana gained from buffs (for example Ryze's bonus mana from Desperate Power, Tear of the Goddess)
this makes this survival ryze alot more viable.
all the other info you will need
as this is my first completed build with actual chapters i suggest that you look at other builds for pro's/cons skill sequence and the rest. thankyou for looking at my build hope it helps others and any helpful remarks are welcome.
P.S. i am aware that the build is weak to cc's if need be swap the boots (not rocket science)
