Hey Guys and Girls,

I am MaD xVegeta, and I play on EUW since one year. I played Ryze a lot and think he is a underrated OP champ.

This is MY Ryze playstyle and i am really good with it. I don´t say that this is the only or the best build for Ryze. I think that it works well and everybody can play Ryze with it. I just want to share my experience with the League of Legends and MobaFire community

First of all, please leave a comment if you have any suggestions to improve this guide pls feel free to leave a comment.

When Shall I Pick Ryze and when I should pick another champ?

Ryze is good against...
Fizz and Veigar. If Fizz´ jump is on CD he can stun snare him and kill him easy. Veigars ultimate needs an AP enemy to make damage. If you are able to outfarm veigar he is useless the whole game.

Ryze is bad against...
Ziggs and Xerath. These are both champs with a huge range. They can stop Ryze from farming and kill him from range. In the most cases he is not able to reach a Ziggs/Xerath to make dmg on him.

In the early game you should last hit minions with your q to get stacks on your "Tear of the Goddess".

Later you can use your Ultimate in combination with your E to clear the minion waves.

This runebuild give you extra mana which rises Ryze dmg in the early game. The extra magic penetration helps to take your enemies down and the extra amor prevents you from dying if you get genked.

The items are very special for a Midlaner. Ryze´s damage is based on AP and Mana. So you have to buy good mana items. Muramana AND Seraph´s Embrance will rise your Mana on 2000! which scales in ****ing damage.

Will of the Ancients gives you 20% Spellvamp. Your Ultimate gives you 12% Spellvamp so he can restore his health very easy.

You can change the Frozen Heart to Spirit Visage if you have problems against an AP midlaner. But i prefer Frozen Heart because of the extra Mana

Ryze is a good champ to burst enemies down and has a very strong waveclear. But he can be countered by champs with more range.

If you have questions pls send me a message or add me in LoL (MaD xVegeta)
