It's not mystic shot base damage.

It's ezreals base attack damage.

I think we found the reason you thought IBG/Sheen was so good for Q.

I think I made a mistake when I explained it...

Crit strikes scale with base AD. It also does 250% damage with Infinity Edge.

Mystic Shot has a base 1:1 scaling with Ezreal's AD. Therefore it does Ezreal's base attack damage with some base damage. However, the Sheen proc also adds 150% of Ezreal's base AD to the Mystic Shot, and the proc therefore scales with AD. This effectively gives Mystic Shot a 2.5 AD Ratio. This means that it would do as much damage as a Crit Strike with Infinity Edge, plus Mystic Shot's base damage. So Ezreal's Q will deal more than a Critical Strike.

In the actual game, there will be less opportunities to AA someone than to use your Mystic Shot, since Mystic Shot's range is 1100 and your AA range is much lower (550 I think). So although it may seem like Critical Strikes do more damage, you will be using your Q to do a lot more than what your AA will be doing. Your Q will be your main kiting, harassing, and long range damage tool.

Also, if I build Trinity Force, I will definitely be buying Infinity Edge over a second Bloodthirster. Therefore, I will still be getting Critical Strikes in there, just not as much. However, I will have a more powerful Q and this will more than make up for it.
