Intro to ryze in the jungle
Ryze makes a great jungler because he checks all the boxes to be a good jungler. his wave clears after an item becomes monstrous, and with a good understanding of ingame economy, you can snowball hard just by farming. Ryze has a great 1v1, making him able to stand alome in the jungle. his W root/slow makes his ganks hurt a lot and with his semi global tp makes his map pressence almost uncontestible. nkt to mention his ability to secure objectives at a great speed also goes a long way. the only thing is his first clear feels rough, its good as timing goes, but hes usually oom and half hp. similar to how he feels in lane pre lvl6. this makes him susceptible to early invades, which makes him less favorable at high elo play. though in low elo, you dont find a lot of invades pre lvl 4, so you dont have to worry too much.
Meta vs truth
Ryze gamers will typically buy rabandons 3rd item for damage, but they are constantly complaining about being kited, or forced into running ghost when they want to run TP. damage and movement speed is the common trade-off. because ryzes build is so constrictive having to build RoA and Seraphs staff. And forget about not buying those items.
the answer here is running ghost, movement speed runes, and / or cosmic drive. many items and runes will give ryze a short period of movement really useful for trading, but after the laning phase, he lacks the 100 to 0 one shot clap capability that these short movement buffs give him. and if you want to clap one shot people, play zoe, otherwise build cosmic drive on ryze before rabandons cap. you will thank me i. the long run.
like you can still build rabandons, 4th item after cosmic drive, but you wont get kited and rundown so easily.
but people will continue building pure damage on ryze and being disapointed and blame him for being an outdated champion when hes actually broken as hell.
ryzes ability to out scale poeple in the jungle is gross, and having a strong understanding of jungle tempo and economy is essencial to make good decisions as ryze. if you dont know what tempo is, do a bit of googling first ;)
Item build / rune notes
In this guide, take a look at the item builds and make sure to read the notes for each one you plan on trying out. many of these builds require different play styles, and have unique rune pages ive made up in this guide to go with each one. make sure to read the notes on the rune pages. all this information will help you in figuring out ryzes weaknesses and strengths and what to build in what situation.
if any of you have different ideas on how to build ryze, please leave a comment.
Recomended build and runes
i have a build and rune page that is labelled "recomended" this build path with give you the most versatile build, and the runes will be the most forgiving in the earlier stages of the jungle, good for new ryze junglers.
once you can do a full clear and not get executed by jungle creeps, you can move on to a more situational build and rune path.
Best keystone for ryze
As ryze, we tend to want ghost and tp. but are unwilling to drop flash as a summoner spell to have both. My biggest problem with ryze jungle is that smite is thrown into the mix of competing spells. I think ghost and smite are his most valuable spells. Being in the jungle, ryze doesnt have many keystone runes that benefit him much, other than fleetfootwork for early sustain, amd phase rush as an offensive/defensive MS stat. i belive that keystone unsealed spell book has the greatest potential for champs like ryze. Being able to swap to flash, ignite, or exhaust for an early gank can win lanes. How many times have you seen a perfect TP potential to close out a game? a cleanse you wish you had against that 14/0 TF? that little extra mana to invade enemy camps? unsealed spell book has a lot of outplay potential that i think suits ryze a lot here im the jungle, and even in the lane.
Importance of haste, movement speed, and health stats
If you didnt already know, Ryze's ability to spam E-Q alows him to deal about 500 Damage AoE every second in combate, midgame. His E-Q combo can hit for 800 Damage every second in combat into the late game, making him a complete momster im team fights and 1v1's. this is why he requires a lot of HP to stay allive long enough to 1v5. hence buulding HP and Mana over pure AP stats is always a better option. would you want to deal 1200 per targetdamage in ome secomd and die, or 8000 damage per target over 8 seconds and possibly not die? Build RoA and Seraph's.
Ryze requires a lot of haste if he is going to be able to spam his abilities at an alarming rate, which 90% of the time, you will prioritize CDR boots, and other CDR item passives, and even take triple tonic and RoA to ungrade spells early to get more CDR on your abilities.
Movement speed is his biggest crutch. his cast times dont seem long, but when youre max build max Cooldown, your machine gun spell slinging makes it seemlike you're standing still with all you cast animations, and the little time you can move, you want to move fast. similar to any AA champ or point and click champ, also, you want to dodge skill shots and out play. watch this video and you will know what we are trying to achieve here.
