This build is meant for being tanky while doing tons of hybrid damage in AoEs.
Grab your Tear of the Goddess as early as possible and SPAM THAT SUCKER- you have to fully stack 2 of these for this build, so get spammin'.
You can take
in place of
for tenacity, though if you want EITHER of these items will depend on your playstyle. You will end up with over 200 AD, but with no crits and as spammy as Ryze is, you're probably just going to be using that to get your
procs every 3 seconds and that's all, so neither of these items may be necessary. Use your best judgment based on what type of damage you need to be doing and your playstyle.
Other possible later items include
for CC removal,
in place of
for tenacity and further tankiness.
is very good for this build as well for a focus on more damage while still providing health, and it synergizes well with both your
and, if you build ultimate troll by building
for slows on EVERYTHING EVER as well as more health.
As mentioned in pros and cons, this build lacks penetration, and that hurts. A
can counteract this, but it doesn't fit with the build's idea of being tanky.
fits the bill nicely, and if you don't build
, this item can fit great in its place. Unfortunately, Abyssal isn't as effective late-game for penetration as Void Staff is, which is where pen is most important, especially for you.
