Summoner Spells Back to Top

Absolute must-have:


4.png- Always pick this no matter what. Combined with your E, you become a chasing/escaping/kiting monster.

Situational. Depends on your enemies/playstyle:



14.png- A great choice. Allows for early game pressure and possibly first blood. Perfect for aggressive players.

12.png- If you go top you'll find this quite handy, combined with your ultimate and some great snipes you will be surprised of the annoyance you can bring to the enemy team via map control. You can go back to top easily in order to farm/push or you can teleport to another lane for a quick gank/countergank. 

21.png- Useful against enemies that usually all-in you and melt you (like 105.png238.png), however, with the proper use of your E you'd be able to escape some close situations so you might find ignite better, depends on your playstyle. If you prefer passive play or feel like baiting the enemy then you can use it. It absorbs a nice amount of raw damage(more than heal + lower CD) and does not get reduced by ignite.

7.png- The same explanation as the one for 21.png goes here as well. You have to carefully pick either one though depending on what you prefer. Heal's advantage over 21.png is that it can also heal another target, gives you a nice movement speed buff and actually fills up your health bar, it doesn't only give you a temporary shield. Do remember that it gets REDUCED by ignite and other healing reduction things like 3123.png.
3.png- in case of 238.pngthis is better than 21.png. You can even call it your "best friend".

1.png- against very heavy lockdown enemies just like 127.png.

Ferocity: Going for fervor is what I recommend if you are going to use the main core items I'm going to suggest. Auto attacking more is what I'm going to advice you and you'll see yourselves that fervor works wonders. It also works quite well with your Q ezrealmysticshot.png so it gives you a nice damage bonus.
The other points you put into the ferocity tree are quite self explanatory:
  • Fury - more attack speed for easier fervor stacking. 
  • Double edged sword - more damage, now that they changed it making it the same for melee/ranged champions you won't feel bad for taking extra damage compared to melee attackers, wohoo ^_^ / if you feel like you need more sustain you can freely go for feast /
  • Vampirism - Extra sustain. What more than that? Combined with doran's blade 1055.png you will have a starting 5% life steal, which is good for a start to keep you on your lane. Going for Natural Talent looks tempting because Ezreal scales with both AD and AP but I consider Vampirism as a better option. / Another viable option is going 2 points in Vampirism and 3 points in Natural talent as the lifesteal rounds up to 1% and the 3 points in Natural talent give you 6AD and 9AP as well as early game damage boost, which is better if you take into consideration stat per point. I can go deeper into this explaining why it is worth it / why not but I do not think it is that much of a difference. Try both suggestions and pick the one you think benefits you more. After all it is a good option. Just don't go for 5 points in Natural talent, that's the only thing I'm telling you not to do. /
  • Bounty Hunter -  5 unique kills = 7.5% more damage = heavier snowball.
  • Battering Blows - Free armor penetration. Will make your Q ezrealmysticshot.png and autos together with fervor hurt even more.

Cunning: You should spend your extra points in that tree. 
  • Savagery - easier lasthitting.
  • Assassin - Solo lane? Free % damage. Take this.
  • Merciless - More free % damage? Take it.
  • Dangerous game - you know these guys that barely survive your ignite after they kill you? That's how it happens.

The picture below gives you another approach to playing solo 81.png. Better burst, different playstyle. Burst and run. Better for blue build/AP  81.png. I will be covering  3078.png Ezreal though so that's another thing you could test for yourself.

Maxing order in a solo lane: Q>E>W and R whenever possible obviously.


Passive ezrealpassive.png: Every time you hit a target with any of your spells, you get an attack speed buff (% scaling with level) for 6 seconds, which stacks up to 5 times meaning you can get up to 70% bonus attack speed. Having a synergy between this and your build will give you an enormous damage output bonus. Do NOT underestimate it.

 Q- Mystic shot ezrealmysticshot.png: Your bread and butter skill. Max it first. Great for poking, applies on-hit effects, reduces the CD of ALL spells, including its own CD. You can check bushes from a safe distance so try not to die from a silly facecheck while playing 81.png.

W - Essence flux ezrealessenceflux.png: Maxing it last doesn't mean that it is a useless spell. It does almost no damage when you are building AD but it can be used to stack your passive ezrealpassive.png by hitting enemies and allies. Using it on your allies will grant them a nice attack speed bonus. Don't forget that this spell is AoE so if you hit enough enemies/allies you can literally get 5 stacks of your passive ezrealpassive.png instantly. You can also do the W+E combo allowing you to hit yourself with your W, which will give you an attack speed bonus (one stack) from your passive ezrealpassive.png + the attack speed bonus from the spell ezrealessenceflux.pngitself. Being on a solo lane, however, I do not find it worthy of leveling it over other spells, meaning that often I don't even get it pre-level 13. Getting it at level 4 while duo laning is perfectly fine though if you are going to utilize the things I mentioned above. Leveling this spell or not pre-level 13 is a matter of personal preference. If you feel like it will be useful to you - grab it! My personal choice is not picking it up most of the time.

E - Arcane shift ezrealarcaneshift.png:This is the spell that can make or break an 81.png player. It does contribute to your burst damage greatly so it is a perfect spell to take down enemy targets BUT don't use it in a stupid manner. Be aware of ganks because this is your only escape tool and it is an OP one - it is a teleport, not a dash, which means that you can escape a 53.png hook immediately AFTER it touches you. 
Note: do NOT use it to teleport into 5 enemy players, do NOT waste it near the enemy team while you are alone/or only with a couple of allies/ because the enemy team will use that against you and chase you down. Perfect for getting over different obstacles/walls. It's essentially a built-in 4.png, keep that in mind. Also remember that using it solely for mobility will often grant you more damage thanks to a better positioning instead of using it directly for its damage.

R - Trueshot Barrage ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png: An AoE global ultimate. Doesn't it sound fantastic? You can use it to push your lane, you can use it to help teamfights, snipe from across the map and eat up that last chunk of HP from an enemy target, you can harass enemies in order to help your allies for skirmishes. It gives a great burst potential and amazing single target damage (the damage gets reduced the more targets you hit). You can stack your passive ezrealpassive.png by hitting multiple targets / similar to stacking it using your W ezrealessenceflux.png /. Don't hesitate using it to clear a wave in order to save a turret or to steal a buff/dragon/baron - it feels so good ^_^!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    You should be starting with this almost always. Maybe sometimes you would feel more confident having boots instead if you are against a skillshot champion but it does not happen that often. These starting items work every single time.

Core Items

    Rush these ASAP. Tear first.
    Upgrade into these.

Situational Items

    Damage enhancers.
    Lifesteal + damage.
Champ select quick build order:1055.png-> 3070.png -> 3057.png -> 1001.png ->3042.png 3078.png. Then go for situational items.


  1. 3070.png - you must get this ASAP. Try having it stacked @25th minute or earlier.
  2. 3057.png- your next core item. From now on your Q will hit like a truck. Your autos will not be strong yet though.
  3. 1001.png- mobility. Take tier 1 boots as your third item. Choose between 3004.png and 3078.pngafterwards. In most of the cases it's better to buy 3158.png because it gives you more poking power / spell spamming. The other items together with your passive ezrealpassive.png give you enough attack speed, however, 3006.png is still a decent choice. Buy tier 2 boots after you have bought either 3004.pngor 3078.png. I recommend taking 3004.png first as it makes stacking it to 3042.png even easier and your autos will start hurting a lot earlier. If you prefer to be a caster 81.png early/mid-game then take 3078.png first. Whatever you choose to pick first the end result will still be a godlike damage 81.png with an insane auto attack/poke damage. Your kiting ability will be weaker than that of a blue build 81.png but the damage will compensate for that.
By now you should have 3004.png3078.png3158.png. The moment your 3004.png upgrades to 3042.png then you are in the zone. Go ahead and show them who's in charge. Now go for situational items. 
  • 3035.png- if they start stacking armor after you have your core items. Upgrade it later after you take at least 1 more damage item. Pick 3033.png if they have champions like 50.png16.png.
  • 3153.png - your attack speed will get to a toxic level, which means that your autos will become a pain in the ass - and don't forget that the on-hit effect gets applied when you hit your Q ezrealmysticshot.png. Will also give you some lifesteal. Good item to take as 4th if they have high hp with not that much armor targets (below 115 armor). If they have high hp with a lot of armor targets (higher than 115-120) then get 3035.png first.
  • 3072.png- you can get this as your 4th item combined with 3153.png(before or after 3035.png depends on whether they have armor or not, just as I explained above) as well. Will give you more raw power + a shield if you oversustain yourself. Easier to nuke squishies. 
  • 3139.png - against heavy CC teams and suppress. Removes 19.png ultimate, which is quite useful to know. Keep in mind though that it no longer removes 105.png (removes only the slow but not the shark) and 238.png ultimates. Cleanses only pure crowd control abilities, not debuffs.
  • 3156.png- good against AP nukers. Can save your life and it also gives you a buff that increases your lifesteal if the shield gets activated.
  • 3812.png- raw damage and a % heal of all physical damage you deal. You take part of the damage as a bleeding effect, which means that you will die slower and will have the chance to sustain some part of the burst aimed towards you. Overall a good item for 81.png although it's best to take it if you have 2+ spells you can benefit from.
  • 3031.png- I don't really like this on 81.png. It works with the attack speed you get especially from the new 3078.png but I don't really aim for critical strike. On-hit effects and attack speed make your poke/autos strong enough. There are better items than this.
Example full build: 3078.png3042.png3158.png3153.png3036.png3072.png.

If you just disappear when they touch you: 3078.png3042.png3158.png3156.png3139.png3812.png
Against CC3158.png3042.png3078.png3139.png3072.png3153.pngor3036.png on either place of the last 2 items.

Always adjust your build according to the enemy. Think of what items you are going to need and which ones to get first. Don't just follow a blind pattern.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Quite a simple matchup. If you ever face this guy, save your ezrealarcaneshift.pngfor when he tries to get to you with his only gap-closer aatroxQ.png. It's very easy to dodge it, after that you just attack him while keeping your distance. 3153.png and 3033.png will make facing 266.png a lot easier. 

VS

Anivia

Hard

Midlane: Hurts like a motherfucker. Your ONLY option is to harass her from far away and take her down to at least 50% hp then nuke her when the right moment comes. If you go in a direct 1v1 against her at full hp she will fuck you up. Dodge her stun and if you are good you will be able to keep her away. Once she catches you though - R.I.P. Gank the other lanes.

VS

Ashe

Easy

Her only thing to keep you away is her asheW.png. Try dodging it or stay behind your minions. Poke with your ezrealmysticshot.png and keep her away. If she lets you harass her too much then you can try bursting her down.


Watch out for her asheR.png. Don't use your ezrealarcaneshift.png foolishly as I have mentioned it before and prepare yourself to dodge her ultimate. You should win that easily.

Warning: Think twice before diving her. asheR.png is no joke.

VS

Azir

Hard

He will keep you away with his soldiers azirW.png so have keep that in mind. Your E ezrealarcaneshift.pngcan go over his azirR.pngso that is one way to outplay him while he believes he's invulnerable behind his wall. Farm with your ezrealmysticshot.png, if you have damaged him and you spot him wasting 1-2 soldiers and trying to aim them at you with his azirQ.png then you might as well try to kill him / if he doesn't have 100% hp, note that /. Having 3155.png will help you a lot.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

If you face him at botlane / or by chance on any other lane /, all you gotta do is dodge his rocketgrab.png. That's literally all you have to do. This way you won't find yourself in the middle of their team, nor will you experience his burst. You can kill him easily if you manage your ezrealarcaneshift.png in a smart way. 

Remember, just dodge rocketgrab.png. That's all. 

VS

Brand

Medium

That guy has a lot of damage so if you let him spit it out all on you in a single burst combo - you are dead. Try dodging some of his stuff, harass him and don't stay close to each other/ or to your minions when he casts his brandwildfire.png. Lower his hp and finish him off, your only possibility.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

Okey, this champion will be annoying during the laning phase. She has the range so you won't scare her that much with your ezrealmysticshot.png. You will most likely need to farm with your ezrealmysticshot.png because she will punish you every time you try to get in her auto attack range. Pure 1v1 against her will probably lead to her defeat unless overfed. Just try not to give her a huge advantage during the laning phase.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

You have one thing to dodge here - his Rupture rupture.png. After that you are free to annihilate him. Having your core items + 3153.png&3036.pngwill melt him literally. If you play smart with your ezrealarcaneshift.png throughout the whole game - early, mid, late, you will come on top, guaranteed.

VS

Corki

Medium

This guy has some cool damage so take care. Farm safely, poke when possible. Don't enter in early skirmishes with him. When you hit your power spike you will be able to make him cry with proper positioning.


Don't forget about his upgraded Valkyrie carpetbomb.png (W Dash), he will most likely try to pull off some nasty trick on you with some of his teammates. 

VS

Draven

Medium

Harass then finish him off. His axes hurt so your best option is to melt him down by going all-in and hitting everything you have. If you miss a large portion of your burst damage he will show you his moustache powered axes dravenspinning.png


Don't forget about his global ultimate. dravenrcast.png

VS

Ekko

Medium

Don't take unnecessary damage from his Q ekkoQ.png. If you see that his ekkoW.png is coming towards you - you can dodge it with your E. If he jumps on your with his E ekkoE.png, you can escape from that too. Just get away from him with your ezrealarcaneshift.png after he has wasted his dash and punish him. He won't be able to get to you if you are doing it right.

VS

Graves

Medium

Tankier than most carries and with an insane burst. You have your ezrealarcaneshift.png so you should be trying to dodge most of his damage. Don't stop moving, make yourself a hard target to hit. Stay behind minions - he will be only able to reach you with spells but as I've already mentioned you have your ezrealarcaneshift.png. Abuse his weakness while he is reloading. Smart plays will lead you to victory.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

If it's a pushing Heimer that knows what he's doing you won't be able to kill him alone. Your ezrealarcaneshift.pngcan help you dodge and sometimes position yourself in order to harass him but it won't help you get near him. His h28gevolutionturret.png will fuck you up, don't underestimate that. Your main priority is to destroy his turrets with your ezrealmysticshot.png and even ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png if it's getting out of control. If there are no turrets left - kill this big head mofo. If you can't control his turrets very well then everything will probably turn into a passive farm fest.

VS

Jhin

Medium

A champion with a lot of potential. Playing smart and not going too greedy should give you the opportunity to harass him and eventually kill him. Getting him caught and managing to execute your burst properly will make him go back to the seventh layer of hell before he reaches his 4th shot. 


If you spot him using his ultimate, throw your ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png in his face.

VS

Jinx

Medium

Again a champion that will be able to harass you back when you try to throw some of your Qs ezrealmysticshot.png, similar to 51.png. You can dodge all her spells though. Bursting her down works well. The best trick you can pull on her is to RQWEauto from a bush. It works against everything usually.

VS

Kalista

Easy

Make her cry with your spells and try to land some autos on her especially early game. Should be not able to take you out unless you mess up everything. 

VS

Karma

Easy

Strong karmaheavenlywave.png especially when empowered but that's all about it. You can dodge it with your E ezrealarcaneshift.png. Not that much of a threat for you - be it as a support or a midlaner.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Quite a simple matchup. With the help of your ezrealmysticshot.png you will be able to farm/harass safely meaning that you will be able to dodge most of his Qs laywaste.png. Staying close to your minions will significantly reduce his laywaste.png damage if it hits you. Keep that in mind. 

Save your ezrealarcaneshift.pngif he tries to slow you for a gank or just to harass you - his harass is going to hurt a lot if you are alone and slowed by the wall.

The only thing you can't really dodge is his ultimate fallenone.png. If you don't have 7.png21.png off CD or a teammate to save you - boom, you are dead. 
There is, however, a thing you can do if you are both low HP and there's no other thing you can really do - snipe him ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png. If he casts his ultimate fallenone.png while alive and dies during this time - it gets interrupted and goes on CD. Don't get surprised if he leaves the game after that.

VS

Katarina

Medium

If she jumps on you - ezrealarcaneshift.png away. You can completely neglect her deathlotus.png ultimate's damage by just going away from it. Harass her, she's melee. The only thing she can do to you without wasting her shadowstep.png on you and just running away while you are shooting at her is her bouncingblades.png. With some sustain to overcome her harass and 3155.png you should be fine.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

0 mobility champion. Try to abuse your spells to lower his hp then annihilate him. You should be able to take him out in a 1v1 out of the lane. Just don't let him abuse his W kogmawbioarcanebarrage.png during the laning. Better stay away from him during this time and farm with your Q ezrealmysticshot.png.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Always keep your ezrealarcaneshift.pngoff CD in case you need it for an emergency escape. Harass her utilizing your range, don't let her take free bits of your health. Watch out for her only gap-closing skill lissandraE.png, that's her only way to catch you, use her ultimate lissandraR.png on you and burst you down. 1.png would be quite useful in this situation. Lifesteal and magic resistance will serve you great as well (hint: Mercurial scimitar, also gives you CC removal).

If you execute most of the things mentioned above you will not be in a trouble, however, if you let her free harass you without even using her gap-closer - you are done.

VS

Lucian

Medium

This guy can make you hurt even if you try poking him with your ezrealmysticshot.png. If you go towards him to damage him then he might try to use his lucianQ.png through the minions and poke you back. The better zoner would be the winner here. Dodging his lucianR.png with your ezrealarcaneshift.png should save you tons of damage but don't forget that he can also dash with his lucianE.png during his ultimate.

VS

Lulu

Easy

Easy to dodge her main damage dealing source - luluq.png. Don't forget about her ultimate and if you play smart then you will have no problems.

VS

Lux

Medium

She has a nice range and annoying high damage spells so you'd better watch out. Dodging her luxlightbinding.png should be your priority - it's not that hard to do it since you have your ezrealarcaneshift.png, however, if you get caught she'll unleash everything on you and melt you especially if she's a midlaner and not support. You have to be very careful not to get nuked but if she misses a part of her combo - punish her for that, take a chunk of her hp every time this happens.

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Destroy his voidlings the moment he spawns them alzaharnullzone.png. Try to remove his passive with your ezrealmysticshot.png and preferably wait for a gank. If you don't get too close you will be fine but you won't be able to kill him if he's playing safe. Gank a lane, farm, take him out in teamfights together with your allies.

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

Good damage, not that hard to beat her. Annoy her with your spells and ezrealarcaneshift.png away when she casts her missfortunebullettime.png ultimate. You can teleport close to her (but out of her ultimate) and punish her for staying stationary with your combo.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

If you dodge her spears she's fucked. The moment she tries to jump on you while in cougar form you can get away from her with your ezrealarcaneshift.png and make her choke. If you let her hit her spears you will lose because she can jump on you from very far afterwards. Just dodge that damn thing and you will win.

VS

Quinn

Easy

You won't see her much at botlane but going solo somewhere else will probably give you the honor to face her a few times. Again - you have to spam your Q ezrealmysticshot.png and shouldn't let her come too close. If she tries it - you just back away while harassing her. If she catches you then you can just ezrealarcaneshift.pngaway and punish her.

VS

Sivir

Medium

Low range but be careful for her Q spiralblade.png. It actually deals a nice amount of damage, you can dodge it with your E ezrealarcaneshift.pngbut don't make it too tempting by showing you have no mobility left because she might decide to punish you for that by ulting herself and her allies and catching you off-guard. 


There will be times when you will agonize after she blocks your finishing ezrealtrueshotbarrage.png on her with her spellshield.png, however, try not to give her too much free mana during the laning phase. Crucial blocks happen and it's not always because you haven't planned everything perfectly, but please, don't just feed her free mana. If she uses her shield, try punishing her for that afterwards. Make her bleed for using her shield to block your ezrealmysticshot.png.

VS

Tristana

Medium

That little yordle is a tough one. Don't stay too close to minions she is killing because of her detonatingshot.png's passive. She might try to all-in you with her jump, put her explosive on you and stack its damage with her attack speed steroid rapidfire.png. She has a fine burst if she includes her bustershot.png too. Her W and R open a spot for plays so don't fall for baits.

VS

Twitch

Medium

Squishy. Proceed playing against him similarly to how you'd play against Ashe. Keep him away with your ezrealmysticshot.png. Poke him 'till he can no longer stand his own life. Watch out for ganks with his stealth twitchQ.png because he can fuck you up really hard, abuse his weaknesses while he is out of stealth.

VS

Varus

Easy

He has that annoying Q varusq.pngto tilt you during the laning phase but you should be able to dodge it even without your ezrealarcaneshift.png. The best option for you would be to save your built-in flash in order to dodge his ultimate varusr.png. After that it should be a piece of cake to take him out.  

VS

Vayne

Easy

Laning phase: harass her with your ezrealmysticshot.png, if she tries going ham on you to get her third hit from her vaynesilveredbolts.png , you can just ezrealarcaneshift.pngaway. Not worth it trading with her if she manages to get her 3rd attack on you.


Out of the lane: bursting her down works. Although if you jump on her and miss a good portion of your burst damage then she will just R+Q and send you to heaven. 

VS

Zilean

Medium

This guy as a support will make you feel worthless at times. You kill someone, they get back to life chronoshift.png. You can dodge his stun by avoiding his double bomb combo with your ezrealarcaneshift.pngso try doing it. Caught off-guard though he's an easy target but don't go for 2v1 fights while he is there even if one of them is low-hp.

The importance of timing summoner spells Back to Top

Timing the cooldowns of the summoner spells of your opponents can make a huge difference. *Here's a list below to some of them:


Cooldowns

  • Flash 4.png - 300 seconds / 5 minutes

  • Heal 7.png - 240 seconds / 4 minutes

  • Barrier 21.png - 210 seconds / 3.5 minutes

  • Exhaust 3.png - 210 seconds / 3.5 minutes


Keeping record of these cooldowns will help you get additional kills. Knowing that they can't flash/heal/exhaust will contribute greatly to your kill potential - you can all-in them or burst them knowing they can't counter-react with summoner spells. This will also give your jungler a perfect opportunity to gank your lane. 


*I have listed only a few of the summoner spells - the most played ones. You don't have to remember neither these CDs, nor the ones of the other summoner spells - while in game, just press tab and hover your cursor over the summoner spells of the desired opponent - this will show you the exact total CD of the spell.  

Tips & Tricks Back to Top

Useful against 53.png: Q

Your E can destroy the whole purpose of this champion. You can easily dodge his hook by correctly timing your E (timing here is not even hard) - just dodge it when you see his hook coming out. However, the tricky part here is that even if he TOUCHES you, you can still escape like a boss by just shifting away with your spell just a moment after he starts pulling you towards him.

============================

Useful against 254.png: R

This one requires a lot more timing but it's not something extremely hard, you will get used to it quickly. To dodge her ultimate you simply need to cast your E the moment she's about* to hit you / the exact* moment she touches you. This way she will just finish the execution of her ultimate on the ground without you standing there and getting slammed.

============================

Useful against 78.png: R

Correct timing and things should work out the same way they do against Vi. Or you can just predict it, I'm just throwing this here in case things get really close.

============================

Useful against 111.png: Q

This one also requires more timing. You have to cast your E a bit later compared to the case with 53.png. When you see the hook touching you then you have to shift away as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that this will not completely nullify the effect of the spell as it would do with 53.png's hook. It will just lower its effectiveness to a certain degree. / so your best bet here would be to just completely dodge the spell before it even gets close to you but in emergency cases the things I've mentioned above are quite useful /

============================





*Note: Ping always play a role when it comes to correct timing so when I tell you "about to hit you" or "at the exact same moment it hits you" you will need to choose which of these 2 commands to follow because the gap between these 2 is very small and could get screwed up by ping. So the best option for you is to just test it a few times with the average ping you have in order to get it to work for you properly. That's why for me it could work out "the moment it hits me" and for you it would work out "just a moment before it hits you".



                        


What does this guide offer? Back to Top

What does it offer after all?

I strive to expose some of 81.png potential. For now I'm going deeper into revealing how to play auto attack Trinity Force 3078.png   Ezreal. I recommend going midlane although the guide is suitable for 81.png on any lane, except for jungle/support obviously. However, due to the fact that this build works perfectly at botlane too, I have put other AD carries that you might encounter into the matchup section. The guide is basically "Understand how the champion works then go wherever you please". The aim of the guide is to provide you with some basics of the build so that you can get a solid grasp of how this champion works. You can tweak some parts of it or even try something completely new - if you manage to pull off something by doing so you might put it in another guide! 

Could try to explain blue build 81.png as well in the future but there's nothing that much special to say about it, it's quite mainstream at the moment.

What is the purpose of this build? Doesn't it suck? Back to Top

I use blue build as a reference to 3025.png Ezreal. 3078.png is what works the best with the rest of the items I've suggested and allows you to use your auto attacks as well, which adds a lot to your damage.

Many people decided that after the nerf on 3078.png (removing the crit chance) Ezreal can't be played with that item anymore. That's not true, Blue Build is not the only viable option. You will not be going for critical strike anymore with this build hence my dislike towards 3031.png3078.png will enhance your ezrealmysticshot.png thus making it a lot stronger and will give you a nice attack speed bonus (that's what they buffed in trinity force after removing the crit chance), which will have a great synergy with the rest of your items. The build aims to keep 81.png poking power to a very good level / that's why you get 3042.png3078.png & 3158.png / but it also opens space for your auto attacks, which will hurt a lot. Blue build does not rely on auto attacks, nor does it make a great use of your passive ezrealpassive.png. This build, however, uses both. Once you hit your powerspike with 3042.png you will notice that going 1v1 against someone will be melting him down because you have a lot of ATS to make use of that extra damage from 3042.png + your Q will be still hitting like a truck and will apply the bonus damage once more. Going for 3078.png will give you more ATS which will lead to more on-hit effect procs from your items + it will enhance your Q even more because it applies on-hit effects. The active can help you with the kiting, it also melts high hp targets. The rest of the situational items I've added in the Items Section do help you reach your maximum potential.
