Introduction

Hello, Today im bringing you a guide for AP Ezreal, This will show you how to burst enemys down and control your lane and win teamfights!

(My account is diamond III and my friend also helped me out on this guide, he has over 2.6k wins and has played since Beta.)

Pros-
Minions cant take the skill shot since your only using W.
Your W hits numerous people in team fights
His damage output is really high
Heavy AoE damage if you combine W and R

Cons-
W is a shorter range then Q
Heavily Skill based
Farming is harder
Positioning is everything in a team fight with ezreal.

Runes

I chose the Ability power marks & Quints for early on damage to maximize the potential damage output with W and E. Mana Regen Glyphs for spamming W.

First recall

2
15-20 minute mark
If you are sure you wont take damage get sapphire and 2 mana pots, if you think its so/so get a mana and health pot.
For your first recall, if you have the gold, get needlessly large rod first. but rush Deathfiregrasp.
Cooldown items are really good with AP Ezreal. Spam W E and R more.
Final Build(s)
Standard Final Items
Rabbadon - for more damage output and AP in general.
Zhonyas - The active if your getting focused. - Good against fizz akali talon etc
Deathfire grasp - with around 350 AP and level 18 your ult does over 1000 damage. and W does around 650. Use DFG and imagine the damage afterwards.
Mejai's - if your getting fed and dominating, definitely get Mejai's your AP will be through the roof.
Archangel's - For the Mana

Situational Items

Guardian Angel
Guardian Angel - Getting focused like crazy i would get one of these for some Armor and Magic Resist and the passive of course.
Zhonya's Hourglass
A counter to everyone that focuses you basically. Very good to rush if you want too.
Deathfire Grasp
Always good for your first or second item, You will nuke people like crazy.
Enchantment: Distortion
You use summoner spells aloooot, So these are really good to get on Ezreal.
Doran's Ring
You can start this if you want, i find rushing DFG is better.
Frost Queen's Claim
Good if you cant get farm gives some AP, Mana regen, and Gold per 10 seconds, What dont you need?
Mejai's Soulstealer
I wouldnt recommend getting this unless you are dominating.

Threats

Evelynn
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
Any squishys nightmare, High burst but your E can escape her bursting damage


counter- zhonyas
Fizz
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
If you are not that experienced with Ezreal he can be tricky cause of his high burst. If he throws
ult out E out of range and there goes majority of his damage.

Counter - Zhonya's.
Leblanc
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
You can bully her alot but when she gets 6 time her Ultimate and you can outplay her easy.
Masteryi
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
Even if you E away and he has his Ultimate or Ghost you will more then likely die unless you Zhonyas and E over a wall.
Talon
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
You really cant stop him.. he has a low CD and silence and you will get just nuked.
Zed
Difficulty
Favors Enemy
He is easy to go against till level 6, When you see him ult you E away and if you need to Flash.

Early Game

Always go W, E, W so you can maximize the W damage cause at first it doesnt do alot. Stay safe farm and keep pelting people with W.

Mid Game

You now have you Ultimate and some AP, what to do? If you cant get kills at mid, push the lane, and go for bot. If your W lands with some help from teammates
Your ultimate will destroy there health.

Late Game

You are really strong if you got farm and kills, What to do? If you got max CDR cap, spam ult. Ult minions waves if they are trying to take tower to post pone them
from taking it, or just simply harass with it.

Teamfights

Positioning is everything, Your W hits multiple people. And it does over 600 damage! Make every shot count. you can win team fights with W R combo.

Conclusion

AP Ezreal can work bot or mid, more favored towards mid and is really strong and has a 2 ability combo that does over 2.5k damage combined. He is really fun
and has a high skill cap.

Skill level from 1-10 probably about 8
