Table of Contents

  • Abilities

    Arcane Mastery
    Lets us make people explode.

    Use every other spell cast, bread and butter skill.

    Rune Prison
    Very good, keeps them in range of our Q for longer.

    Spell Flux
    Meh, it's ok later in the game, but mostly used to cooldown our Q.

    Desperate Power
    Farming tool mostly, but very good.

  • Introduction

    Hello, welcome to my Ryze guide. A little background of myself, I play any champs that I feel. I recently bought Ryze and instantly fell in love with him. This guide is going to aim you in the right direction of a build, as any build CAN work, but certain builds are obviously better.

  • Masteries

    For masteries, it's normally 9/21/0 in order to maximize the tanky nature of Ryze. The key points are Strength of Spirit because later in the game, you won't ever have to base (combined with your ult). Also [mastery=ardor] since AP is a sub-stat, when you get Archangel's Staff it adds massive AP to improve his E.

  • Items

    Start off with Sapphire Crystal and 2 Health Potion. The first couple levels, you should play very conservative, don't get aggressive, you will probably die.

    On your first back, aim to get lvl 1 boots along with either Catalyst the Protector or Tear of the Goddess, of course this depends on money (I've had times where my first back got me both). If you are getting harassed a lot, get catalyst.

    Your core is Sorcerer's Shoes Tear of the Goddess Catalyst the Protector and Glacial Shroud. Aim to get your boots and the item you didn't get between tear and catalyst on your second back.

    Later you would like to finish a Banshee's Veil as well as Frozen Heart if the game goes long enough. And then get defensive/offensive hybrid items if the game goes really late. ie: Abyssal Scepter.

  • Skilling Order

    is your bread and butter, it scales with mana, it should be used between every other spell cast. It should be maxed at level 9.

    A general order before level 6 is ,,,,,

    Try to harass as much as you can with your Q, and if they get below half during the laning phase then go in for the kill with Q W Q E Q and so on. That is the general spell combo for the whole game.

    Later on priority is just R,Q,W,E because E doesn't scale with mana, which is what we are getting mostly.

  • Summoner Abilities

    I like to use Ghost and Flash, but spells are personal choice mostly. I recommend not getting Clarity though, simply because you are building mana, you don't need the regen. Ignite could work, but it's not my kinda spell, it feels really weak unless you use it with malz or swain's E, or unless you use it against warwick or mundo. Now, if they choose one of those 2 champs, I still don't recommend it too much, but use it if you like.

  • Farming

    USE YOUR ULTI TO FARM. I can't stress this enough, SCREAMS to be used to farm, it is almost never useful against champs, unless in the teamfight they are all clumped together, which shouldn't happen. Just pop R, Q, E, Q, and you will get every minion in the wave. Ryze is a great farmer.

  • Conclusion
