I just bought Ezreal, but I'm not sure if I should build him AP or AD. Is one better than the other or what? I'm not sure which one I should go.

both builds work. neither really just trumps the other, but he is different than most because his AD is better early but AP is better late.

Three of your abilities scale with AP with decent ratios.

he's decent as AD and AP. Now w/ the recent change to AD he's actually better than he was. But w/ a lich bane his Q is effectively a 1:1 AP ratio. I know some people ran a hybrid build, but I'm not sure how good it actually is.

why is this even being argued.

AD. always. always. AD.

people tend to forget that, after all of ezreal's skillshots and junk, he is a carry, an autoattacker. AP ezreal's burst is pretty cute, but other nuke champs like kass, akali, leblanc just do his job way way better. not to mention they all have CC that AP ez lacks. plus AP ez totally wastes his AWESOME passive.

hybrid ez works a little better. basically an AD ez with a little more burst and less dps. but remember you are a carry. you may be stronger in little 2v2 or 3v3 skirmishes, but in team fights ezreal really needs to leave the nuking to the specialists, and focus on building him the way he was intended.

building AP ez is like building corki as ap just because 2 or 3 of his abilites scale AP, or AP mf because she has good AP ratios

+1 Ad ez dominates Ap and whats this about late game Ap being better?

GUYS.
You're both morons, AD and Ap Ezreal both work very effectively and are very powerful if played properly.
The only diffrence between Ap and AD Ezreal is that
AD can farm better, harass better early game and has a good amount of sustained damage. Very strong against low cc teams aswell.
Ap farms slower but has great harassement late game with Lichbane, additionally, the amount of damage True Barrage does with Ap is ridiculously strong.

THEYRE BOTH GOOD.

AD Ezreal drops off late game when other AD carries get their items for greater DPS and usually brings more utility. (Ashe, Tris, Corki, etc)

AP Ezreal hits like a truck lategame with very short CD's, rendering the point that AD Ezreals can sustain damage with AA's and Q spam a moot one.

AD is stronger early on than AP builds, but once you get a Lich Bane and at least 500 AP, your beloved Q is another AP skill for the AP players.

But wait, an AP build is not even bad early on. At best, I can burst 400 health (with average MR) down at level 5, followed by a huge nuke at 6. You can talk all about how AD builds hurt more early on (and I agree), but don't make your ignorance even more obvious by trashing AP builds' early game.
