Not only is Ezreal an impressive Dragon Lane Marksman with a magical glove, but he also looks like he could be in a boy band. Or at the very least a co-star in a saccharine Disney Channel series from the mid-2000s. Oh, and he’s also the most dangerous Marksman Champion you’ll find in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
That’s not to say he’s an easy character to get to grips with. For one thing, you’re going to have to practice landing most of his abilities, otherwise you’re likely to fire them off and miss everything. You need to learn the ropes with Ezreal and avoid panicking, which is obviously easier said than done.
All told, League of Legend: Wild Rift’s Ezreal is a mobile and murdery Champion who can be really deadly in the right hands. And we’ve written this guide to turn your clumsy mitts into those right hands. You’re going to learn all about Ezreal’s Abilities, as well as the perfect build, from gear to Runes to Spells, to dominate on the battlefield.
What are Ezreal’s abilities?
- Rising Spell Force (Passive)
Ezreal’s passive ups his attack speed every time he lands an ability. The speed boosts stack up to four times, and you can keep the bonus running by landing another ability before the effect wears off.
It’s a good idea to power up your stack by hitting minions before you start a fight with another Champion. If your Ultimate hits multiple Champions, you can instantly fill up your Rising Spell Force stack.
- Mystic Shot (Active)
This is Ezreal’s main source of damage, and you can use it to poke as well. Mystic Shot is a long-range attack that applies on-hit effects. That means it can’t crit, which is important to know when you’re thinking about what items to equip.
This is a skill shot, so you can’t just spam it out and hope it lands, you need to aim it carefully. There’s a reward if you do though, because – if it hits – all of your Ability cooldowns will reduce.
- Essence Flux (Active)
This attack throws out a blobby orb that sticks to the first structure, Epic Monster, or Champion that it hits. It’ll hang on there for a few seconds. If you attack or use an ability on anything with the Essence Flux on it, you’ll deal extra magic damage and recharge Ezreal’s mana.
If there’s no one around and your Rising Spell Force stack is about to run out, you can stick Essence Flux to a structure to keep the boost running.
- Arcane Shift (Active)
This works an awful lot like the Flash spell, but it’s got some impressive traits that make it even more useful. When you use it, you’ll attack the nearest enemy when you appear, but if there’s a target with Essence Flux in the area, they’ll take the brunt of the damage.
Shortening the cooldown of Arcane Shift makes it an incredibly useful tool that can see you zipping in and out of scraps like a nightmarish slaughter machine. If you get your timing just right, you can even use it to get out of CC effects.
- Trueshot Barrage (Active)
A ridiculously long-range skill shot that does a pretty impressive amount of damage to anyone it hits. You can use it to snipe low HP Champions, take down an enemy team’s HP before starting a fight, or shove a minion wave. Firing it when you can’t be seen is a great way to ensure it lands.
Ezreal best Build
This keeps your mana high and adds additional damage to your attack and abilities based on the amount of mana you’ve currently got saved up.
- Trinity Force
This adds loads of extra boosts to your stats, as well as the Spellblade passive that increases the damage of your first attack after an Ability.
- Ionian Boots of Lucidity
This shrinks down the cooldown of all of your abilities, which is super useful for Ezreal. Use the Stasis Enchant to deal with burst Champions or the Quicksilver Enchant to protect against crowd control.
- Blade of the Ruined King
More damage and attack speed, physical vamp, and more damage to Champions depending on their HP. Oh, and you can slow them down as well.
- Mortal Reminder
Useful when you’re fighting against Tanks thanks to the added armour penetration it offers and the additional Grievous Wounds passive.
- Guardian Angel
This gives you the chance to play more aggressively because its passive resurrects you when you take lethal damage.
What are the best runes for Ezreal?
The stacking damage complements the stacking damage of your Passive, making you even more lethal.
More damage, more armour penetration. Brutal just makes things more fun and violent.
This one gives you hybrid resistance. Not just to you but your lane partner as well.
- Manaflow Band
The more you hit enemy Champions, the quicker your mana regenerates. That’s a perfect balance for Ezreal.
What are the best spells for Ezreal?
Sometimes you’re going to overextend and get yourself in trouble. Heal can get you out, especially with its movement speed increase.
Ezreal is fast and hard to pin down without Flash. Take this onto the battlefield and you’ll be zipping all over like a lunatic.
