I'm getting used to Ryze and I really like him, but everytime I go up against a Yi I get my *** handed to me. Any tips?

In lane or in general?

AD or AP Yi?

Anyway, your best bet is to Rune Prison him, walk back a bit out of melee range, then combo him down quickly.

And build Frozen Heart.

Rush a Negatron Cloak and Catalyst the Protector against him if he is AP. If he is AD, go a Glacial Shroud instead of the Negatron. You should be able to be sustained and just push him to the tower. Harass him in the early levels with both autoattacks and spells.

Both really, but I feel like AP Yi is somehow worse. And yeah in Lane.

I'm already building Frozen Heart.

I go Archangel's Staff, Mercury's Treds, Frozen Heart, Banshee's Veil, Void Staff, Will of the Ancients

Void is situational on Ryze. Rod of Ages is core!

Mana and health.

Idk how you can lose lane to AP Yi as Ryze. When he Qs you QWEQ him and outtrade him. As GMD says, build the proper resistances and you should be fine.

Ryze is a dps mage, which means he doesn't get as hindered by magic resist as burst mages do. Therefore, the % magic pen is not always necessary but only in a few situations. Rod of Ages provides a nice passive, great amount of ap and mana and a ton of health. Ever since Ryze got changed (better ap scalings, lower mana scalings), this has become a core item.

One last question then: I get my Tear, Merc Treds, Frozen Heart, and Banshee's Veil first, and I always go for Archangel's Staff last. So in the middle, which should I build first: Rod of Ages or Will of the Ancients?
