Hey man, really like the guide. Couple of questions. What are your thoughts on starting cull in order to overcome the early game troubles, how about boots of ionia? I'm having a hard time getting to a point where I'm a threat, usually the game is already slipping out of my control because I am not relevant without items. At what point does this build become strong? After arch staff and lich bane purchases?

Also, do you have any ezreal themed clubs you could invite me to so I can get a sweet ezreal tag?
hipstersora (1) | September 24, 2018 11:28am
Cull keeps you running AD adaptive stats, but I would only ever suggest it for a farm lane where you can do nothing around the map. Optimally as AP Ezreal you want to be picking up a kill or two early game before you become basically useless for 12 minutes, so you can make it to that midgame spike where you are an assassin.

As for CDR boots, I would not suggest. You should be reaching 45% CDR with transcendence, sheen, archangel's/ludens, 5% rune.

As for the point at which you become strong, it's really about the two item mark of Archangels/Luden's + Lich Bane. At this point your Q's really start to hurt, and your QWEQ combo will kill most squishies if you land the full thing. You really do want early kills to help keep you more relevant and get you to the point of power quicker. Your main priority earlygame if you can't get kills is to push as hard as you can, get your tower, and roam for the side towers (bot specifically) because of your W AS buff.

This is a super scaling build in a short-game meta which is unfortunate, but in the games where you reach full build you can actually oneshot ADC's from across the map with just your ultimate; SUPER satisfying. Some of my friends who play AP Ez swear by rushing gunblade into Lichbane for more earlygame power, but I would personally suggest Luden's if you have to get earlygame power as you'll be running out of mana without its components and.. yeah

I have a EzBrZ tag if you want in, just drop your summoner name. Remember to upvote the guide if it's helped!

useless guide by a bronze caliber ezreal

an outdated guide would be more useful

Why don't you explain why you think it's useless. Just being negative without providing what you think it's lacking or could improve upon would probably help your comment be something more than just putting someone else down.

Hey hipstesora,

Thank you for this amazing guide. I see you have spent a lot of you time to make it. Its really help me. But i have one question. Is it better to buy Hextech Gunblade instead of Lich Bane? Anyway Thanks again.

hipstersora (1) | April 17, 2017 11:00am
For your first item or just in general? In general, Lich Bane >>> Gunblade. For first item, it's pretty situational. Lich Bane will make your Qs have a 70% AP ratio instead of a 40% basically, which means farming with Q is a lot easier. However if you're in a matchup where you need the sustain and you need to be farming under turret, Gunblade's AD helps you a lot.

I pretty much always go Lich Bane first, and a lot of the time I don't even buy Gunblade.

Hey hipstersora,
I see that you have written down a lot of good things for how to play with ezreal and that you have put a great deal of time and effort in your guide, but I wonder why you haven't used BBcoding in your guide. If you spend some time to learn how to use the BBcode your guide will be a lot more eye catching
Another question
Do you find Ezreal on attack damage stronger than Ezreal on abillity power. And why?

- monimakaroni!
hipstersora (1) | April 7, 2017 1:38am
Don't really even know where to start leaning about BBcoding, and wouldn't even really consider putting in the work to make the guide look aesthetically pleasing unless I got to plat and the guide caught more notice.

As for Ezreal's strength on AD VS AP.... it varies. AP Ezreal has one really glaring weakness that can't really be fixed with an item, and that's waveclear. He's safe, he has poke, he has burst, he has global control/pressure... just no waveclear. Many other midlaners will simply push you in and poke from longer range than your W, which makes a lot of things rough. AP Ezreal can 100-0 any squishy though in a single rotation, assuming you land your skillshots. If you don't you're pretty much dead and don't have an E to escape for a fighting chance.

AD Ezreal is much more consistent, has DPS over burst, and has comparatively more waveclear. You can even take AD Ezreal mid and rush a Trinity to do stupid amounts of damage while taking the tower fast, and since you'll essentially be an ahead botlaner you can roam bot and get kills easy. The biggest problem with AD Ez mid is you might offset your team's physical vs magical damage. Only suggest if you have an AP top, jungle, support like Brand, and/or kog'maw.

Hey man! Great Guide!
However, one question. If your intended final build grants you 30% CDR (10% from Lich Bane + 20% from Rello), you really don't need intelligence. The Magic Pen in my opinion is much more useful, as you can burst people down more efficiently.
hipstersora (1) | March 11, 2017 3:07am
Hey! Thanks for the reply. I take intelligence not really for the endgame 45% CDR (which does let you ult more, one of the key reasons to be playing AP Ezreal imo in addition to it being his only waveclear) but rather for the CDR in lane. 5% from intelligence at the start of the game is nice, and then at lv9 you get 5% more, as well as sheen having 10% on it. 20% CDR with just a Lich Bane at lv9 is pretty stupid.
