Playing As EzrealSquare Ezreal
  • Use Arcane Shift Arcane Shift to help line up your other skill shots.
  • You can play Ezreal either as Attack Damage carry or Ability Power carry depending on how you build him.
  • You can line up Trueshot Barrage Trueshot Barrage to hit multiple minion waves or even Monsters.
Playing Against EzrealSquare Ezreal
  • Ezreal is a very fragile champion so take the fight to him.
  • Ezreal is completely skill shot based, so make sure to keep minions in between you.
  • Mystic Shot Mystic Shot applies on-hit effects including the Crest of Cinders buff Crest of Cinders.


Ability Usage
  • To farm or take objectives faster, use your Essence Flux Essence Flux and then Arcane Shift Arcane Shift right into it for an attack speed buff.
    • (Note: this no longer applies since the rework changed Essence Flux Essence Flux to instead detonate for extra damage if attacked again by EzrealSquare Ezreal) It will be extra beneficial to hit allies with Essence Flux Essence Flux as well in the process, as it will not only grant them bonus attack speed as well but also boost your own even more due to Rising Spell Force Rising Spell Force.
  • Use your Mystic Shot Mystic Shot to acquire hard to reach farm or to harass your lane opponent. Due to its versatility, it is usually taken first for both AP and AD EzrealSquare Ezreal and then maxed first for AD EzrealSquare Ezreal.
  • Hold on to your Arcane Shift Arcane Shift to dodge crucial enemy skillshots.
    • Although Arcane Shift Arcane Shift deals decent damage, it shouldn't be used to do so as it is EzrealSquare Ezreal's only form of mobility. The projectile from the ability is also rather unreliable since it does not prioritise enemy champions.
  • Use Trueshot Barrage Trueshot Barrage to push waves in your favor. It can also be used similar to AsheSquare Ashe's Hawkshot Hawkshot for scouting, especially when you have high CDR.
  • Do not forget to auto attack in between Mystic Shot Mystic Shot's. This significantly increases your DPS, especially with a fully stacked Manamune item Manamune (Muramana item Muramana).
  • Landing Mystic Shot Mystic Shot is extremely crucial as it reduces all of EzrealSquare Ezreal's cooldowns thus allowing him to kite with Arcane Shift Arcane Shift and clear waves faster or snipe targets with Trueshot Barrage Trueshot Barrage along with just generally increasing his DPS.
  • For AD EzrealSquare Ezreal, Essence Flux Essence Flux is rather weak since it does not scale with AD. However, it can still be used for an extra Sheen item Sheen proc or simply to give your team, and by extension yourself, extra attack speed.
    • For AP EzrealSquare Ezreal, Essence Flux Essence Flux is your main source of damage due to its high AP scaling and added bonus passing through all units that it hits.
Rune Usage
  • EzrealSquare Ezreal utilizes Kleptomancy rune Kleptomancy better than any other champion in the game except for GangplankSquare Gangplank.
    • Mystic Shot Mystic Shot immediately procs Kleptomancy rune Kleptomancy because it applies on-hit.
      • Use your long range poke to poke out enemy champions, and gain free Kleptomancy rune Kleptomancy consumables.
        • Sell unwanted Kleptomancy rune Kleptomancy consumables in the shop for a bit of extra gold.
  • Take Future's Market rune Future's Market because EzrealSquare Ezreal is item-reliant. It allows you to get into debt (negative gold) to purchase items quicker than usual.
  • Cosmic Insight rune Cosmic Insight gives free CDR and increases the CDR cap to 45%. It also reduces summoner spell and item active cooldowns by 5%.
  • You can also swap out Cosmic Insight rune Cosmic Insight for Time Warp Tonic rune Time Warp Tonic.
    • Time Warp Tonic rune Time Warp Tonic increases the duration of your potions and Kleptomancy rune Kleptomancy consumables by 20% and grants 5% movement speed throughout the duration.
  • You almost always want to take Sorcery secondary because it offers two great runes that benefit EzrealSquare Ezreal well.
    • Manaflow Band rune Manaflow Band increases your permanent mana pool up to 250 mana.
      • The mana increase also synergizes with Manamune item Manamune/Muramana item Muramana passive as these two items grant bonus AD equal to 2% of your maximum mana pool.
    • Transcendence rune Transcendence gives free 10% CDR at level 10. You gain either 2 Ability Power or 1.2 bonus Attack Damage (Adaptive) for every 1% CDR in excess of the cap.
      • This rune works perfectly with the other CDR you get from items and/or runes.
    • If you feel like the game will go long, you can always consider Gathering Storm rune Gathering Storm as it gives extra AD or AP every 10 minutes throughout the entire game.
    • Another rune even though it's not great nowadays is Scorch rune Scorch. It gives added burn damage to your poke.
      • It is not that great because most players are taking defensive rune setups and defensive items, thus lowering Scorch rune Scorch damage output.
Item Usage
  • You always want to get Tear of the Goddess item Tear of the Goddess as quick as possible and start stacking the item. The more you delay buying this item, the longer it takes for you to come online and start dealing damage.
  • Ezreal has one of the best two item powerspike in the entire game. That consists of building a Manamune item Manamune transformed into a Muramana item Muramana and Trinity Force item Trinity Force.
    • These two items provide everything that EzrealSquare Ezreal needs.
      • Manamune item Manamune/Muramana item Muramana gives all the mana he needs to constantly output damage.
        • These two items grant bonus AD equal to 2% of his maximum mana pool.
      • All the Trinity Force item Trinity Force components give a mix of great stats that benefit EzrealSquare EzrealTrinity Force item Trinity Force will amplify the stats that the individual components provide.
        • Phage item Phage gives AD and Health. The Rage passive from this item works with Mystic Shot Mystic Shot for bonus movement speed even though the bonuses are halved for ranged champions.
        • Sheen item Sheen bonus damage works with your Mystic Shot Mystic Shot automatically. It also gives you extra valuable mana.
        • Stinger item Stinger gives excellent attack speed which combined with Rising Spell Force Rising Spell Force + Arcane Shift Arcane Shift into the Essence Flux Essence Flux projectile gives you another source of DPS. Stinger item Stinger also gives CDR.
  • Blade of the Ruined King item Blade of the Ruined King is a good DPS item as it grants bonus attack damage, attack speed and bonus on-hit damage with a scale of enemy’s current health that helps EzrealSquare Ezreal take out units with high maximum health more quickly.
    • The item active helps EzrealSquare Ezreal to slow down enemies in order to land his skillshots more easily.
  • The Bloodthirster item The Bloodthirster and Blade of the Ruined King item Blade of the Ruined King provide with lifesteal that allows him to survives better and regains health after skirmishes and fights.
  • Essence Reaver item Essence Reaver dramatically increases EzrealSquare Ezreal's damage output with bonus attack damage and bonus mana that scales with Muramana item Muramana's on-hit damage.
    • This item also gives CDR, which is one of EzrealSquare Ezreal's preferred stats.
    • Essence Flare is useful for EzrealSquare Ezreal to refreshes Arcane Shift Arcane Shift and Essence Flux Essence Flux more quickly.
  • Buying Archangel's Staff item Archangel's Staff after completing three or four items and later upgrading it into Seraph's Embrace item Seraph's Embrace is considered a good idea because it gives a huge amount of mana and ability power, which all of EzrealSquare Ezreal's abilities scale with.
    • More importantly, since Awe from Muramana item Muramana and Seraph's Embrace item Seraph's Embrace does stack with each other, this is an unexpectedly good combo for a hybrid build.
