I've been playing for about 2 months now and I main Ryze. Ever since flask increased in price I'm starting with flask, 2 health pots and a mana pot. On my first back I usually get tear or boots and tear if I have some extra gold.

When I watch other players' streams, I see them get their tear fully charged at around 25:00 to 30:00 with Ryze while generally I can't seem to get mine fully charged until 40+. Can anyone give me some tips on how to charge the tear faster while retaining enough mana to harass in the midlane? I'm also a bit confused on how the 3 second cooldown on the tear's mana charge works.

Thanks

It generally involves lots of last-hitting minions with excessive force. And mana potions and trips back to base.

Alternatively you can just upgrade it into Manamune and use auto-attacks to charge it.

All tear items should have a cooldown display on them now as well, just cast things when there isn't the cooldown indicator over the item. The fastest you can charge a tear is 9 minutes and 23 seconds if you time everything perfectly. 15 minutes is more reasonable. Having blue buff is strongly advised.

Yea, try to upgrade it into manamune directly after you get your RoA (or even straight after you get your catalyst) will speed up the charging progress significantly. Having blue buff will help spam spells, and whenever you push your lane go spam spells on wraiths/wolves to further charge it.
