Playing against Ryze

Key Insights
Casting
W
/
E
resets
Q
's cooldown and charges a rune. At two runes,
Q
grants bonus movespeed for 2 seconds. Using
Q
consumes any runes you have.
E
can spread to nearby enemies. Play away from your minions in lane to avoid being affected.
When marked by
E
,
Q
deals bonus damage and spreads to all nearby affected units, and
W
will root instead of slow.
During its channel,
R
can be cancelled by CC'ing Ryze.
Each time
R
is ranked up,
Q
's bonus damage from
E
increases by 30%.
Power Spike
At level 3, Ryze can reset
Q
twice with his other abilities, giving him strong trading power.
Waveclear increases in strength with each
R
rank up and when
Q
is maxed at level 9.
Damage and waveclear spikes decently upon fully stacking
Rod of Ages
and/or
Archangel's Staff
. Spikes incredibly well on his third item, usually being
Rabadon's Deathcap
.
One of the strongest champions in the late game, especially at level 16 and onwards.
Vulnerable
Can't lock you down with
E
into
W
without getting close.
Once he's out of mana, there's not much Ryze can do.
Needs many items to hard carry and cannot reliably build easy leads on his own until he has, at the very least,
Tear of the Goddess
or
Catalyst of Aeons
.
