Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Not really much to say here, best summoner spell in the game. Always get it.

7.png Probably the best summoner for botland, since you can also heal support. Get that most of the time

1.png When up against heavy cc, this might come in handy. But if you get it always remember you won't surivive early trades that good in contrast to having heal in lane. Also this requires some skill to use it in the right situation, so you might want to train using it in normals before taking it to ranked.

Don't get anything else, no other summoner is worth it in duo lane.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Fervor is still rather good on Ez since his q can stack it and scales well with AD. You can also take Bloodlust, but I don't recommend it.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Get this if you think you get kills in lane.
    Get this if you can fight your enemy lane straight up. (see Matchups)

Core Items

    Black Cleaver Route
    Normal Bluebuild
    Squishy Midgame Win Build

Situational Items

    If you need MR, but no Cleanse
    MR+ Cleanse
    Replace BotRK if no tanks
    if you get focused down
    More HP

WHEN TO BUY WHICH BUILD:

Black Cleaver/Blue : You are up against tanks and don't need to deal all team damage. Even better if you already got some AD in your team that don't build BC. My most prefered build, since it is mobile and strong.


Normal Blue: Go this route if the enemy team has next to no tanks or you already got some tank shredders. This build can deal more damage even vs. tanks, but provides less utility overall.


Trinity: Don't buy this, unless you play just for fun. The trinity nerfs hit this build way too hard. Without the crit from trinity, the build just can't ever keep up and I hope Riot gets some other alternative for Gangplank/Ezreal/Yas Top out, so you can still get crit and sheen proc.



THE BLACK CLEAVER ROUTE:

I like this build the most, since it lets you deal with tanks and squishies alike and makes you even more mobile.

For the first back you should aim for:

3070.png + pots and wards

if you have way too much money on your hands then also get a 3057.png

Finish in this order: 3004.png -> 3025.png -> 3006.png

Though you should get 1001.png and 3057.png before manamune finish unless you can insta buy the manamune.

After that go for:

3071.png -> 3153.png

The 3153.png should still be better in this build if they have no tanks, since the active makes you even more mobile.

For Last Item I normally get:

3026.png but 3156.png or 3139.png work very well too, depending on the situation.

If you want even more HP, you might wanna get a3053.png, but I haven't tested that too much. Still a good item tho.


NORMAL BLUE BUILD:

This build is a bit stronger vs. squishy teams, tho not as mobile:

Get 3158.png as boots and 3153.png instead of cleaver. Get 3072.png instead of 3153.png if you got money and they got no tanks. (that are dangerous)

After that get either:

3156.png or 3036.png depending if you want more damage or survivability.

After that go for the other defensive options, but DON'T BUY 3053.png + 3156.png, THE SHIELDS DO NOT STACK.

If you REALLY need more hp and got a maw go for 3102.png or 3742.png, but you shouldn't NORMALLY NEVER REACH THIS POINT. So only buy those if you REALLY need to, mh kay?

THE TRINTIY BUILD:

WARNING THE TRINITY NERF MADE THIS USELESS

Just buy them in the following order, but note that this build is basically shit  and only good if you get fed hard, don't get this unless you play normals or just REALLY want something thats not blue build:

3078.png -> 3006.png ->3508.png -> 3031.png -> 3072.png -> 3026.png, or any defensive item I mentioned before.

VS

Alistar

Easy

Weak with new patch, unless you don't ezrealarcaneshift.png too aggressively, you are fine, since you can always dodge his combo with ezrealarcaneshift.png.   

VS

Bard

Medium

This champ is an asshole. High early game damage, a real horror if he's good with his bardQ.png or/and bardR.png. Try to e the ult/stun and fight his ADC if he is out collecting his chimes. Still he has a high skill cap, so he is managable.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Just ezrealarcaneshift.png his rocketgrab.png, and you should be fine. Don't let him zone you, or he will grill your ass with his really high damage. Avoid aggresive ezrealarcaneshift.png

VS

Brand

Medium
If he is good, this burning twat will fuck you up with his very high damage. Can be worth it focus him in lane.Try to dodge as much as you can and get away from your support if he brandwildfire.png either one of you.

VS

Braum

Hard

This russian-ice-fucks-your-face. This Mayor Armstrong-Clone is a nightmare to play against: His braumE.png can block your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png, ezrealmysticshot.png and ezrealessenceflux.png, he facetank a lot of your damage, stun you and deals a lot of damage for a tank. Try to ezrealarcaneshift.png his braumR.png and braumQ.png if you can.  

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

This bitch is beatable early, but once you are in the late game, she will handcuff you and fuck your ass. Her range is retarded, walking into her caitlynyordletrap.png can sometimes make you lose half your hp. Your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png is better than her caitlynaceinthehole.png tho, since it can hit multiple enemie. Try to shut her down early and to get into late with a advantage over her like drakes or a lot of towers/farm. Otherwise you won't be able to fight her late and can only spam ezrealmysticshot.png in the fights in hope to deal enough damage to be useful.

VS

Draven

Medium

Relatively easy to hit when he tries to catch his dravenspinning.png, but can snowball you to death if you let him live for too long. Also his dravenfury.png is scary. Always try to ezrealarcaneshift.png his dravendoubleshot.png, he will kill you.

VS

Janna

Hard

She won't deal any damage, but eliminates your poke with her eyeofthestorm.png, and your engages with her reapthewhirlwind.png. Just buy a  1083.png and wait for teamfights, you can very rarely win a lane fight against her, unless they are out of position.

VS

Jhin

Hard

A fucking nightmare. Deals incredible amounts of single target damage, bursts you down, so your sustained damage isn't worth shit. Try to use the reload windows, but that normally isn't enough to win against him, so will have to really outplay him.

VS

Jinx

Medium

As long as she doen't get resets, you are fine. but if she jinxpassive.pngYOU ARE FUCKED; RUN!

VS

Kalista

Easy

Worst non troll ADC, only good if played by NL. Really bad damage, you can ezrealarcaneshift.png out of her range, so she can't kite you, and her late game scaling is even worse than yours.

VS

Karma

Easy

Can be annoying with her poke, but her skills are easy do dodge with your ezrealarcaneshift.png, and she is weak in late, since she can't protect her adc, unless she is really good.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

Can fuck you up with his high single target damage, but if you stay out of his range and poke him down with ezrealmysticshot.png, and use his stationary playstyle to land ults, he is beatable. 

VS

Lucian

Hard

Overplayed twat. He can fuck you up hard if you let him come near, but once you have your core, you should be able to kite him to death, though this can be hard, if you don't play Ez 24/7.

VS

Lulu

Easy

Also a weak champ, stay out of her range, keep her ult in mind and you are fine.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

Rarely see her, neither really strong nor weak, just try to poke.

VS

Nami

Hard

Her amount of CC and heal can fuck you up bad, since you can't ezrealarcaneshift.png her whole combo. Also her namiE.png is a real assfuck, if her adc is on your ass. Passive playstyle and staying in the back is required to not get rekt by her.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

You can dodge most of his shit, and if you stay out of his ult range, you are fine. Don't go near him tho, unless you wanna get shrekd.

VS

Nunu

Easy

This champ is a joke. Just don't get tilted by Nunu Bot laugh.

VS

Sivir

Hard

Her ricochet.png buffs made her dangerous, since she can crit you down, without focusing you. Also her onthehunt.png is better in TFs than your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png. Her spellshield.png makes sniping her pratically impossible as long as her reactions isn't shit, and she generally block a lot of your shit, so try to avoid fighting her 1v1 troughout the game.  

VS

Sona

Hard

Annoying as fuck, sonacrescendo.png is hard to ezrealarcaneshift.png, high damage, annoying sonaariaofperseverance.png. Don't poke to much vs her, since she will heal it away. Try to catch either lanes with cc.     

VS

Soraka

Medium

Not as annoying as Sona, since her damage isn't high, still shit to poke against. Focus her first.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

Weak champ, still annoying, can almost never harm you.

VS

Thresh

Medium

Try to get lvl 2 first, since you need ezrealarcaneshift.png asap, after that you are fine you are better than him.  

VS

Tristana

Easy

Bad champ, kill her when she engages.

VS

Trundle

Medium

Can be hard to play against, if you have tanky support, his trundleR.png is op. Try to poke him down constantly so he can't engage. Get out of his  trundleW.png and trundleE.png ASAP.  

VS

Twitch

Hard

Nightmare Shit Rat. When he has twitchR.png and 3142.png  he can oneshot you, if you are alone, coming out of his twitchQ.png. You can't really do shit against him, he will beat you up ~90% of the time. Get your team to focus him down.      

VS

Zilean

Hard

FUCK THIS CHAMP. You will never get any kills against this fucker. Absolute facefuck. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.

For real tho, he is nearly unbeatable, try to kill asap, but mostly you will get fucked by his adc by then. master of making your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png useless.

Introduction Back to Top

Hey fam, I'm Ialdur, mid-Plat Player in S6 and Ez main since you were born. Ez was the first champ for 6300 IP I bought, and is the only champ I can stand spamming. His kit is really fun, since it requires you to be active all the time, and needs skill to peform good. Also his skins are really cool. Need anymore reasons to play him?.. Well fuck D:

The PROS 3072.png :

  • Highest damage output out of all the adcs
  • Really fun to play
  • active playstyle so you stay in the game mentally
  • can deal with tanks
  • strong escape
  • split damage

The CONS 3151.png :

  • Weak early since you need to get 3070.png
  • Weak late
  • sustained damage instead of burst
  • loses AA battles against most adcs

Supports you want with you Back to Top

53.png: AWW YISS. This guy is your best friend. He hooks a squishy, bursts it down and you finish the job. Your damage is insane in lane.

26.png: the Time Fucker is also fucking awesome with you: you never die, he can stun people for insane damage while you finish them off. nice guy.
 
89.png: Juicy damage with her passive and spells, high cc, can protect you... all you want!

201.png: The Siberian bodyguard stand with you all the time, stunning everyone and keeping you safe. Want!

143.png: INSANE damage after rework, but can't protect like a braum, so be more careful.

General Playstyle Back to Top

Ezreal is a caster adc, therefore a lot of your damage will come from your spells and your performance depends highly on you hitting the spells. But still, Ezreal is still an ADC meaning you still need to autoattack and deal decent damage.

Most of the time, autoattack battling with the enemy without hitting a lot of spells is not a good idea, but Ezreal's passive ezrealpassive.png can help you with winning those battles if used right, since most people playing against Ez don't think about your AS steroid and forget about it when fighting you. You can use this to your advantage, especially when in tight spots, where you can suddenly kill someone with the passive fully stacked who would have otherwise killed you. Judging this can take a lot time to get used to, but once you got it, it can get a lot of kills.

A nice way to stack your passive is clearing a wave with an ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png, but you can also take advantage of the stacks you get when ulting another lane trying to snipe someone, because you will hit jungle monsters along the way most of the time.


Still, don't get too cocky with this, your AS Steroid can't compensate everything, especially late game when the enemy ADC has a lot of crit, so be careful with this.

Game Phases Back to Top

The EARLY GAME:

Your early is really weak, mostly because your first back is a 3070.png. But your ezrealmysticshot.png deals some nice damage, especially after 3057.png/3004.png, so poking is the game. When you got 3070.png, farming with ezrealmysticshot.png is encouraged to stack it fast, but keep track of your mana, half your ezrealmysticshot.pngs after getting half mana. If your support lands cc and the enemy support is away, ezrealarcaneshift.png in and get all your damage out. NEVER use ezrealarcaneshift.png aggresively if the support can reach, even with a flash, since that normally means you are down. Try to avoid fighting in waves, since they WILL block ezrealmysticshot.pngs and make your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png useless. Only use ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png to farm if you REALLY need to push, meaning when they are base or you want to go base. Always stay on the lookout for sniping oppurtunities and use them often, your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png has a fairly low cd if you farm with ezrealmysticshot.png. You will be weaker than most Adcs in direct autoattack battle, unless you have 5 Stacks of ezrealpassive.png. Your damage is more sustained, but you also got some burst with ezrealtrueshotbarrage.pngezrealmysticshot.png, so keep that in mind.

The MID GAME:

This is your time to shine! In the mid game, Ezreal is a real beast, here he can use his full potential. You can do almost anything: If you are behind in farm or in general, you can splitpush very well even with  ezrealtrueshotbarrage.pngif noone else is around. You can catch people offguard with your support with your ezrealarcaneshift.png making you really dangerous if you are ahead. But if you got really nothing, it can be hard to come back into the game, farming is almost always the best option. But keep in mind that you are the adc with the highest damage dealt in the game statistically, you can always achieve shit in mid game, even without kills. Try to stay with your support when roaming and in the back when teamfighting, poking the shit out of the enemies. Get towards your team, if you get engaged, not away from them.

The LATE GAME:

Oh boy, this is where things get funky. You are scaling bad into late, almost all adc's will outdamage you at this point, so your best bet is to stay behind, poke and finish off their tanks with your anti tank equip. Try to finish asap, because you can't really achieve shit at this point unless you are really good.
