[10.3] The Unbalancable: A Guide to Ryze

By orangepenguinhead
Hey guys, this is my second guide that I've written on MobaFire. I have played Ryze for quite a bit but if there are anything that I should add onto my guide let me know in the comments. But enjoy what I have to say about Ryze and his in and outs.
Combos Back to Top
1. [E > Q], the meme within the Ryze community,this is one of your main combos as it helps clear the wave quickly and deal damage.

2. [Q > E > Q], this is combo is for doing some quick poke and damage. You want to Q first then E because your E will reset the Q. Since your Q is back up, you can Q again. This is a quick and simple combo that every player should practice and use.

3. [W > Q > E > Q],this combo adds a slow into the first combo. This helps chase people down because of the W slow then into the damage combo.
Laning Phase Back to Top
1. Don't spam abilities until you get your Tear of Goddess.
2. Start trading at level 3 when you have all of your abilities.
3. Freeze the wave outside of your tower so it is easier for your jungler to gank or make your opponent over extend.
4. Once you have enough gold, back to get your Tear. However, if you feel like you have enough mana to farm more gold to get another item stay and then back. Use your Teleport to get back to lane so you don't miss any CS.
Mid Game Back to Top
Once you get Seraph's Embrace and another item, this is when Ryze starts to get rolling. Since mana is not as big as an issue as compared to before, you can start trying to dish out combos onto the enemies. However, remember to keep your farm up, normally I like to aim for 10 cs per minute in a game. After I farm the minion wave, if it is unsafe to push and attack the tower, I roam into the jungle to farm the camps. You should only try this if you know the enemy jungler is somewhere else or if you have a clear advantage over the enemy jungler. You can also roam to help take objectives.
Late Game Back to Top
Now Ryze truly shines, when he has mana and damage! Ryze can put out a load of damage with just an E and Q. At this stage of the game, you should look to team fight as your E into Q combo can destroy the enemy team if they are clumped together because the E spreads. Every Ryze player will tell you that positioning is key when you are playing Ryze. When you play Ryze, do not try to start the fight yourself by E > W-ing. Wait for your team to engage and then you can start comboing. You don't want to be the one soaking up all the damage because depending on your build (tank or burst) if you die, your team loses a damage carry. After a fight, make sure you're not overextending. If your team is leaving, then you should move to a side lane to push the minion wave or recall. Don't greed for an extra kill because it is not worth it especially if you are fed and have a shutdown. Don't be afraid to use your ult to help secure kills even if it means using your ult to bait enemies to move in a certain direction.
Itemization Back to Top
Ryze is very flexible in terms of what items he can build throughout a game. Because of Ryze's passive, which gives him more AP depending on his mana, he can build items like Frozen Heart since it provides mana and armor.

(I'll complete this section soon)
