You may find this item section a bit chaotic or untidy. This is because there are so many different ways of building Ezreal (personal preferences and/ or (enemy) team comps. I can not tell you what you should buy in your situation(s), but I will try to give you a helping hand.
This is how your build often should look:
, if you want to be faster (safer from ganks and easier to kite).
If you feel like getting som durability and damage, you can get 1 or 2
on your first trip back. You can also buy
, start to build/ buy
, get the
for sustain, or purchase
for the penetration.
There are many different ways to build Ezreal. You can rush
, for the most utility, you can rush
for the sustain and damage, you can rush
for raw damage output, and you can get
for armor pen. and CD.
will make your damage high when you hve completed the item. Until this point of the game, you will be less powerful than you would with other builds. IE gives you the most damage on your auto attacks, which is most important part of an AD carry, even on Ezreal. This will also make you able to carry harder late game, because AA's shine more the later the game gets. If you find yourself auto attacking a lot, and think you will be throughout the whole game, IE is a great choice.
gives you a lot damage on your Q, and you will be a better chaser and kiter (faster and slow on Q + AA's) This is probably the most normal way to build Ez, and I recommend it for the newer Ezreal players. You will be able to deal a lot of damage from a safer position. This is overall a really nice item on Erzreal, and i like to combine it with The Bloodthirster.
I often rush
). The lifesteal is great, and it works on the Q. The damage is also great, both the AA's, the Q and the ult synergizes well with pure AD. So your overall damage from AA's and abilites isgreat. It's even better getting BT now, after the buff. It's not that snowbally anymore, since you only need 30 stacks (not 40).
gives you armor penetration, which increases your damage output by a lot, and the cooldown is also great. If you have a AD assasin on your team with BC, it's less effective for you (but still OK).
In almost every game, you will need
. If the enemies has bought some armor, the 35 % arm. pen. is needed.
is also great for saving you. In close games, this item can be the difference between a win and a loss. Sometimes it will be pretty useless, if you die right after you respawn, but might be really important aswell. The 2nd chance is often great.
If you don't have Cleanse, and the enemies has hard CC (
ult, etc.) I highly recommend
, because this will work as the cleanse would, and most likely save you from getting killed (due to CC) several times. The QSS is a must if the enemies have
. Without the QSS, he can just ult you, and let his team kill you, easy enough. Upgrade the QSS to
when the other parts of you build is finished.
Poke, or you just prefer CD over AS:
The enemies has hard CC:
Really, really late game:
Other situational itmes:
If you can't stop yout fingers from pressing QWER.
Gives you a slow, and your W,E,R deals more damage and heals you.
Both the cooldown andre armor pen. synergizes well with Ezreal.
Great vs. initiators such as
, and gives you some tankyness. Shield can often easily get poked, though
Extra health can save you from burst team comps.
The tenacity can be great versus teams with a lot of CC, the CD is nice, and the AS is also good. Overall a good item, but many not the best for Ezreal.
The AS and crit is great for late game damage output, especially if you have IE. The MS is also great for kiting, and positioning.
This works somewhat like the PD (AS, MS and crit). The AOE passive is great for poking with Q, farming, and dealing AOE damage in team fights. This is not my favorite item, but some pro/ high elo players seem to enjoy it.
This items synergizes pretty good with Ez. The AOE slow from your Q can be really strong, and the CD and armor is also really nice. The problem is that this item will set your damage back, and never buy both this fist and TriForce.
Don't forget these for the late game:
Your boots should be upgraded to
, but this should be the last thing you buy.
