So, um, how's that update going?

He's been busy man, give him some more time.
ItsASledgehammer | July 3, 2016 3:35am
I know he's been busy, but he's updated his other guides, and it's been a year...not trying to be a jerk, but them's the facts. I really enjoy the guide, so it's deprssing to see it just rot away in archives for so long

Ill archive it until I have time for updates
alexborr | June 4, 2015 8:52am
outdated since now u get 10-20-30% cdr when you reach lvl 6-11-16
Joshj2003 | April 30, 2015 7:52pm
Awesome guide really helps out, esp. with top lane Ryze. You SHOULD update it soon as you don't need as much CDR and the revamped most of his abilities. Other than that 10/10
Foxy Riven (129) | April 23, 2015 8:26am
I will update it as soon I'm comfortable with the new Ryze. He hasn't changed too much though. We'll see how balanced he is on release.
Stoudamire (1) | April 18, 2015 6:08pm
So I hope you update this guide since I'll try Ryze the soonest 5.8 is released :P... Do you think he'll be better or worse overall?
Foxy Riven (129) | March 28, 2015 3:42am
^ Needs an update indeed, was waiting for his rework, but it looks like they're stalling it, so I'll update it soon enough. Will re-check the runes and masteries as well. He does struggle quite hard against the more mobile champions. And when Darius flash - apprehends, you're dead. As I'm quite busy I'll have to look into tis next weekend.

Thanks for the +1!

First of all: great guide! You put a lot of effort in it and I appreciate your thoughts about the Protector of the Scroll :D
Maybe a little Update would be nice (f.ex. Elixirs) and maybe also a section about the matchups would help out.
My question concerns the Masteries. Playing Ryze almost only Top (I honestly never see him mid), wouldn't there be some more sense in focusing on the Defense tree a little more. Especially when facing an AA heavy opponent like Riven/Irelia/Trynd (....)? IMO Ryze ain't a bad pickup against them, since he can punish them really hard for going in. I struggle to put 21 Points in Utility, when I lose so many Defenses, that exaggerate my duelling power and TP ganking pressure. Anyway: really good guide. Thanks mate (+1)
Foxy Riven (129) | March 23, 2015 7:46am
It seems like he'll have an easier time harassing the opponent now. But we still have to consider his major weak spots in the current meta:

- No escape
- No hard CC

With the tanky CC monsters in the jungle (and top) now I don't think we'll be seeing him much. I'm still waiting for his rework.
Stoudamire (1) | March 23, 2015 4:13am
So PBE indicates that ryze's Q will have its damage increased to 55/75/95/115/135 from 40/60/80/100/120. The original Ryze had 60/85/110/135/160 before getting nerfed. Do you think this changes will let Ryze make a come back into the pro scene? or will he be good enough for a good pick for SoloQ like he was once?. I'm going to use him so much when 5.6 gets released, and since your guide was the best that I found by FAR..

I just want to know what you think about this patch and ryze.

Thanks for keeping this updated!!
Foxy Riven (129) | March 10, 2015 6:33am
^Ryze is having an identity crisis and there are plans for him to be reworked. I'm waiting for that before rehauling the guide.

The reasoning behind IBG + muramana was: Kiting an AD champion and dishing out tons of damage. So I suggest going that route against AD champions who lack gapclosers.
Also, the active of Muramana: "TOGGLE: Single target spells and attacks (on hit) consume 3% of current Mana to deal bonus physical damage equal to twice the amount of Mana consumed."
Sounds perfect for Ryze, doesn't it?
Hoppiedays | March 8, 2015 6:29pm
Hey man I just wanted to say that this build is great and i am loving ryze more and more, but whenever i build Manamune my friends always make fun of me and I don't know why I do build that? I like the Muramana+ICG combo but what is a good reason to get manamune? I can't find one so please help. Thanks!
