Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png -  An absolute must; take it without exception.


12.png - Save a tower, take Dragon/Baron, or swing a team fight in your favor.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top


KEYSTONE - in my opinion, Stormraider's Surge is best.  It protects when you get ganked and get a kill to run away, and also allows you to catch fleeing enemies in team fights.

Battle Trance - great for Ryze who can spend a few seconds spamming spells in a fight.

Q -  Max this first; always. Its good damage ratio makes it excellent for poking the enemy.

W - Put 2 points in this to get 1 second CC.  I find his 'E' to be slighty more valuable after the rework.

E -  Max this second or third.  It's Mana cost and slightly lower damage ratios than W usually seal its fate.  On AP heavy teams, I will usually throw a few points into it to boost damage from my teammates.

R - Max whenever possible.

Core Items

    get this first

    build next if vs. more Magic Damage

    finish this

Situational Items

    "well-rounded" full build
    Physical Damage teams
    Magic Damage Teams

Core:

3040_32.png - 1st in damage for Ryze, provided you have at least 3,000 Mana.  The Mana Regen, the raw Mana, and the AP from %Mana make this great for Ryze.

3027_32.png - 3rd highest damage item for Ryze [once fully stacked].  Have this completed by 13-16 minutes.

3135_32.png - Becoming more and more of a power item on Ryze simply for the fact that the meta has so many tanky champions.  This item will add the needed damage to melt through high defense champions.

3157.png - Solid defensive/offensive item with Armor, Ability Power, and a great passive.


Situational Options:

3116_32.png - The new adjustments to the increased AoE slow make this an interesting choice for Ryze as some defense, damage, and team-fight utility.

3285_32.png - An excellent new addition to this season and perfect for Ryze.

3065_32.png - Great defensive item for heavy AP teams and/or burst protection.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Ahri can be a feast or famine match-up.  If you are good at dodging her charm and then lock her up in your snare, its gg for her.  If she repeatedly nails you with her charm, you will need to have the defenses to withstand it or you're toast.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Cho' Gath can be nasty to lane against, because of the silence and the knockup.  You should remain fairly safe while in lane, but you will need to build some defensive magic resistance and hp, as well as some tank killer items like 3135.png

VS

Darius

Easy

Simply stay out of range of his Apprehend/Decimate.  While you do need to be vigilant about this, but once you avoid, them you can blow him up.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

A fairly easy match-up for Ryze, however you won't be necessarily dominating him.  Both of you will remain relatively safe while in lane.  Build a 3165.png as soon as possible, and victory will be yours.  May be a good idea to grab a 3152.png too.

About Me and This Guide Back to Top

Hello fellow Ryze fans!


I'm Silv3rback, and I've been playing Ryze in Ranked Solo Queue since Season 1.  I achieved Gold level in solo-queue with him in Seaons 3 & 4 (I did not get a chance to play him much last season [6]).  I've seen many changes on him over the years, and have tried to continually adjust to new items and tactics with him.

I noticed virtually all of the Ryze guides here on lolking are from people who don't play ranked games, or don't play him in the ranked games they have played.  So, I feel like my guide can offer insight for those who want to play Ryze on a competitive level. 

The objective of this guide is to keep it simple and straightforward.  I try to keep explanations to a minimum unless I feel they require more attention.
