IntroductionHello my name is SoulbaneZ and this is my first guide so ill hope you will enjoy it.
Item explanationand are a good start. it gives you damage and sustain unlike
Bloodthirster is a good sustain damage item and you should get it early on for lane domination. benefits of geting it early is that you will have it stacked by the end of laneing phase
is a good item powerful early on and scales pretty good in to mid and late game it passive allso procs with your Q
a must have item on any AD carry. gives you insane burst potential
more of a defensive item used for kiting. replaces
good for armor pen but only up to 150 armor
is better against enemies with more that 200 armor
come on. i dont need to explain this. who wouldn't want a second life ?
MasteriesFor my masteries i like 22/5/3 and choosing not to take the crit parts of offense and taking cooldown reduction and Summoners wrath for the ignite buff. I put 5 points in defense because Ezreal is squishy and needs the extra HP and Summoners resolve is there for when i go Clense or heal.
RunesFor runes i go 6x Greater Mark Of Armor Penetration because of Ezreals Q that makes him feel more like an AD caster then a carry
3x Greater Mark of Attack damage for better damage output for CS
9x Greater Seal of Armor for countering the enemy AD
and 9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist because most of the supports are AP based
I run flash and ignite most because it gives me more kill potential and more escapes.
I also like to go if they have heavy CC
Passive: Rising Spell Force
This passive is amazing when used right it increases you attack speed like crazy
Q: Mystic Shot
Q is the best spell on Ezreal and the fact if you can land it decides if you win or loose exchanges.
it also reduces your cooldowns on other spells and is werry useful in CSing
W: Essence Flux
After the nerfs its mostly useless and i only put points in it because i have to. it will get some more damage after building
E: Arcane Shift
this skill is just amazing its a summoner flash with a lower cooldown and if you know how you can make incredible escapes with it. i dont recommend going in a fight with it because you will need it to get out and if you dont have it it might lead to burning
R: Trueshot Barrage
One of the most fun Ults in game is amazing for stacking or sniping people trough out the whole map. in a team fight use it as a initiation to get your passive to full stacks and it will do better than using it as a finisher. a good Ez ult can decide if you win or loose the team fight.
Early GameEzreal is powerfull early on you want to harass as much as possible but keep in mind CS is what you want. use your Q every time you have a clear shot on the enemy. Use it to check bushes. Other then harassing you only want to sit in lane and CS.
Mid GameMid game is where you shine you should be powerfull enough to kite even bruisers. 1v1 vs the other carry shouldnt be a problem but it depends how good they are doing. in mid game you jsut want to shut down your opponent completely and go roaming and help other lanes. Get red buff and even the enemy blue take dragon.
Late Gamelate game you fall off a bit but it shouldnt be a problem because you can kite bruisers and if you train your you can dodge skill shot disables or any sources or skill shot damage.
use your Q to poke theyr team down before engaging. you still want to pick up red and blue dragons and still take CS when people are missing just get it warded so you dont get ganked.
Team FightsYour Ultimate helps so much as an initiation tool and helps you get full stacks of . you want to keep up your passive for the whole team fight with and
you have to position behind your tanks and bruisers. WARNING its not as important to keep up your passive as it is to survive. your passive wont do anything if you are dead.
Lane MatchupsI find Ezreal good with these supports:
because he has a heal a stun an aura that gives armor and hs ultimate makes Ezreal generaly beter
with this support i like to take a point in on level 3 because you can proc her passive. is like a CC machine and with her stuns its easy to land Q and your ult. her passive also makes you do more damage.
if you w8 for the pull its a free kill early on and he scales good in lategame
is good for a poke comp on bot and can keep you alive with her shield and ultimate
Champions that are strong against Ezreal:
the biggest counter to Ez is how ever it is possible to beat him. you just need a support with a stun and land your Q on the spots where his axes are going to land. if his axes are landing behind his minions just dont do it. farm farm farm and ask your jungler for a gank. if your jungler isnt ganking you will have to build x2-3 and
if you dont shut her down early she will become more powerfull than you and kill you.
has longer range and bigger damage
his passive makes it impossible to trade in your favor so you need to rush
has bigger poke has bigger range and bigger damage
most of the time it depends on the supports not the carryes if you win laneing phase or not.
My buddy Tikoa can prove that. He plays support with me and when i get counter picked he can always turn the game around.
to be successful on bot you NEED the help of your support. make sure you get along with your support and that he puts down wards.
all of the carries can be countered by x3 and . its up to you if you want to spend the gold and get out of geting killed constantly or you want to sit and farm for the entire lane phase.
