At level 5, his Q has a 4 second cooldown, with 40% that's 2.4 second cooldown. If he hits a target, it takes 1 second off.. That's a 1.4 second cooldown!

Personally, on ap ezreal I get max cooldown reduction and lich bane and you can spam Q faster than lich bane's cooldown lol... but you always use lich bane when it's up.

On AD ezreal I think cooldown + AD items could be viable...

items that could work: black cleaver, zekes, ghostblade, zephyr, brutalizer, even an iceborn gauntlet

Ezreal builds Gauntlet and a situational Cleaver these days. Your discovery is not new.

That's why you see AD Ezreals get Iceborn Gauntlet.

Because if his Q connects while he has Iceborn Gauntlet it's pretty much up again almost right away. Furthermore, his Q already lowers his CDs. Due to the aforementioned synergy with IBG Ezreal is able to drop his CDs at a rapid rate with his Q. Anything more than IBG is just a waste of stats that could be better spent amplifying your damage.

cleaver and gauntlet are reasonable on Ez, the rest of those items are pretty garbage, if it were more reasonable to itemize 40% CDR on Ez teams would be doing it, if you watch tournament or high elo games with Ez in them you'll frequently see him getting blue buff from his team late game because he tends to scale even better with it than most AP carries

Because ADCs scale better off with AS.

Riven is an AD Carry, in that she's AD, and always seems to carry.

You seem to misunderstand the concept.

Ghostblade? You're seriously suggesting Ghostblade on Ezreal?
