Introduction

Hello this is Bolter (not my real game username) and this is my guide to hybrid Ezreal.
In my opinion, I think that full out AD Ezreal or AP Ezreal does not bring out his true power meaning that some of his abilities scale on AP and AD so hybrid is a very good choice on Ezreal.

Pros / Cons

Pros


-Has a natural flash Arcane Shift
-Team steroid Essence Flux
-Good Damage output
-Somewhat good skill set

Cons


-No Crowd control
-Squishy Exhaust or stun probably means death
-Difficult to master because his abilities are all skill shots
-Item dependent

Items






Early Game


So, the items are basic. The early Tear of the Goddess gives you mana regen. This helps a lot at early game when you are poking and using your skills. Also, the Vampiric Scepter helps you sustain.

Then the Ionian Boots of Lucidity get you Cool-Down Reduction, and importantly, Movement Speed(ezreal is quite slow). This gives you some flexibility and a chance to spam your skills combined with the mana from the Tear of the Goddess(not by a lot but it helps).


Mid Game


Moving on to the mid game, the Bilgewater Cutlass and the Pickaxe gives you more damage and sustain while later, the Guinsoo's Rageblade gives you hybrid damage which is useful.


Late Game


Leading to late game, the Iceborn Gauntlet will be very useful withe the armor and slowing passive. Also, the Manamune finishes your Tear of the Goddess giving you more AD, Mana, etc.

More later, the Hextech Gunblade finishes your Bilgewater Cutlass finishing the build and giving Spell Vamp and more Hybrid Damage.

Finishing the build, Enchantment: Alacrity or Enchantment: Furor gives you movement speed.

Either buy the Mercurial Scimitar or Maw of Malmortius against high ap champions or just buy items like The Bloodthirster, Trinity Force, Last Whisper, or Blade of the Ruined King

Runes

Greater Seal of Armor for Armor (this is standard)

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist for Magic Resist (this is standard)
^this will help more late game since at early games there wont be a lot of bot laners who have bunch of AP (that is why you take scaling not flat)

^these 2 rune types make you less squishy^



Greater Mark of Armor Penetration helps a little early game against supports/adcs that have some Armor

Greater Quintessence of Ability Power for more damage

Greater Seal of Armor


Greater Glyph of Magic Resist


Greater Mark of Hybrid Penetration

Greater Mark of Hybrid Penetration


Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

Masteries

For Masteries take 21/9/0
21 on offense for obviously damage focusing on AP since the items give a lot of AD
9 on defense for more defense.

These stats/numbers below are based on how much my build put in such as 1 point in Hardiness



Offense


4% Attack Speed -Helpful since you use AD as well
4% Cooldown Reduction -Helpful since you use AP and Skill
1 Ability Power Per Level-Gives you more AP
8% Magic Penetration-Helps you with Champions with Magic Resist
6 Ability Power-Helps you since it gives a little AP
Increases AP by 5%-Good when you have a decent amount of AP
Increases Damage by 5% to champions under 50% health-Standard when you take 21 points in Offense and when you are one of the primary damage source in your team

Defense


6 Health per level(108 when level 18)-Makes you less Squishy
2 Armor-Helps you early game with some trades
5 Magic Resist-Helps you early game with some trades against AP champs. (they wont be too strong then)
30 Health-Helps you with trades early game and sometimes you live by 30hp left

Skill Sequence




Mystic Shot (Q): Take it at level 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. This is obviously maxed first. It deals the most damage of all your basic spells and applies on-hit effect for massive Life-Steal or damage by Sheen. It also reduces cooldowns while it still has a low cooldown.



Essence Flux (W): I Take it at level 4, 8, 10, 12, 13. This ability is maxed second after Mystic Shot. This is useful in team fights as a steroid or a part of your combo as it passes through minions and damages champions.



Arcane Shift (E): Your escape/chase spell. Take it at level 2 and max it last because mainly you would use this as a utility instead of damage, etc. You get it at level 14, 15, 17, and 18.



Trueshot Barrage (R): The ultimate skill of Ezreal! As it's your ultimate you max it first and you ALWAYS get it at level 6, 11 and maxing it at level 16. This is really the signature of Ezreal.


Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18


Mystic Shot is a great poke/damage therefore is maxed first

Essence Flux at level 4, 8, 10, 12, 13 are for mid game since there will be a lot of team fights^( Mystic Shot does not go through minions and you want to damage the champions not the minions)^
Essence Flux goes through minions and hits champions it is very useful at mid game

Arcane Shift is useful for chasing and escaping therefore a point on it early and leaving it there is a good choice
^The reason why Arcane Shift is maxed last is because it is mainly used as a Flash mechanic and you don't really need it as much as Mystic Shot and Essence Flux which are your main damage sources

Creeping CS

80 CS - 10:00
100 CS - 15:00
150 CS - 20:00
200 CS - 30:00 (Now you should head up to fight teamfights and dragon, therefore you will most often lose some farms).
Aim usually for about that amount.
CS=Creep Score(Last Hit)

Spells



Other Viable Options


Ghost is a viable replacement for Flash as you can use it to escape or chase


Exhaust is a viable replacement for Ignite because you can use it to prevent them from dealing much damage and to prevent their escape.
