Hey guys,

So, let's get to it. I have been getting progressively more and more annoyed by AD Ezreal. Its great...don't get me wrong...but I remember back when AP was the beeezneez for Ez. So...just as im sure all of you have as well...I began experimenting...playing with different ideas...trying different AD builds...various AP builds...and even the occasional Hybrid build when I was high. But...nothing seemed to top just going straight AD. Until now...

I began by asking these 3 questions:

1. What ratios do his stats utilize AP vs AD?
2. How can I get both my Mystic Shot and my Ulti to do decent-great damage (and was this even possible?)
3. What hinders these respective builds in terms of usefulness.

Here's what I've concluded...Ez is built as a complete hybrid class...most of all his spells use some ratio of "BOTH" AP and AD to scale their dmg. Ok cool...great...lets try a hybrid build...WEEEEAAAAAK. Moving on...

Lets discuss AP vs AD real quick:

AP= Great Ulti dmg, good dmg on both flux and shift...but MS is worthless. Also...extremely mana intensive early game...lots of going back and/or standing around auto-shotting.

AD= Awesome overall utility. Very little mana usage early and late game...MS has nasty dmg...and autoshots do great dmg with 5xPassive on towers and minions. But, ulti is for sniping (last hits...kill steals...etc.)...and flux is basically just there for ****s and giggles.

So WTF DO I DO?

AP is great...love it...AD is great...love it...Hybrid is ****...hate it...THERE HAS TO BE A COMMON GROUND!!!

Well...After about 15 games of messing around...I had a crazy...off the wall idea...WHAT IF...I built him starting off as AD...and then switch to building AP...but...not take any hybrid items...

Start game...

(In game commentary: "ooo nice...omg...ahh yes, good idea...OMG...now lets tryyyy...this and this...HOLY PANDA SAUCE...Ive found it!")...take a look at my stats in the picture below.

Holy **** right? Now look at this...

Ehhh? Ehhh? You likey yes?

Yesss...me likey very much.

Bottom Line: Amazing dmg on ulti (over 1.1-1.2k point-blank)...still good dmg on MS and auto attacks...great dmg on flux and shift...NO MANA PROBLEMS (just spam, spam, spam, spam, spam...all day long with no worries)...and just an overall great feel for everything. Spells do the dmg they seem like they should.

Id like a few other people to try this build out and see if they like it...what they might change...and how well it works for them.

Here is my step by step build order (will post a detailed guide on moba if this receives good responses):

Meki & 2x mana --> reg boots --> Tear --> Sorc Boots --> Sheen --> Manamune --> BF Sword --> NLR --> Black Cleaver --> Rabbadons --> Blast Wand --> Arch Staff --> Lich bane --> Then if it comes to it...I drop my boots and get a Void Staff or Madreds depending on whats needed.

Sorc Spells: Flash, Ignite

Not a big fan of the redundancy between MM & AA, but otherwise looks interesting. I would probably replace MM w/ Nashor's: increased AS, increased spam.

Ahh..thanks for pointing out that redundancy...ment to make note of that...

Reasonings behind this "odd" choice:

As you can probably tell...this is a high mana build...in fact...I even use int per level Seals and Glyphs...and pure Int quints. (and Half and half AP and MP Marks).

Why I feel MM is a great item:

1. Looootsa mana
2. Which in turn = Lotsa extra AD from nowhere
3. Makes you stronger over time.
4. Provides a nice cushion for those more drawn out team fights.

While I havent done the math on how much AD im personally getting from it with my backend setup...I can tell you that It has significantly more versatility than rushing for a cleaver or something of that nature because of how much mana you can accumulate before you get it...not to mention...your building TBC very soon anyway.

Now...why both MM and AA:
1. TBH...no reason...other than...
2. Its a nice little boost to the AP.
3. And I was thinking "Hybrid".

Now heres where I would def consider changing to something like nashors...or what I did last game which was get a Rod of Ages...which scales amazingly with MM...and provides a nice finishing touch all around...whats your thoughts? My only concern with RoA...is game length.

Why Int? Better scaling with MM than just using AD or AP runes...My 2nd set is a CDR/ArP/MaP build. Both work nicely for this style build.

As far as play style goes...I usually Lane with someone...tho I love to mid with Ez in any build.

But my goal generally is strong harass, play it e-z till 6...but not afraid to let some bullets fly and get my hands dirty if you know what i mean.

As far as squishyness goes...Ez is squishy.

Heres a link to skill build.

Is trinity and Lichbane viable? (checks...no ****...why didnt i think of this.) I went with lichbane because My build has lots more AP than AD...but also having a TF would make this kinda the ultimate Ez build IMO...very interesting suggestion...Basically the way i look at the relative build changing is getting everything the same....replace AA with voidstaff...and then when it comes down to it...replacing boots with TF...seems like a very pricy build tho...youd essentially have to be owning face the whole time...which you can do...but sometimes you just get screwed make-up wise.

In all honesty...I play him the same as I do when I play AD...essentially as soon as you get sheen and MM is when things get interesting...its a powerful boost...very early game.
