Hello, how are you?

I would like to know what precisely are Ryze's weaknesses:

What's the most efficient way to counter him?

What's the best kind of champion to counter him?

Thanks in advance

Ryze is countered pretty hard by range, anyone that can stay outside his range of Rune Prison means he can only use a few of his abilities. He also has low cool downs and benefits from mana oriented items. This means he is going to get tanky pretty fast as most mana items include a bit of health or tankyness in the build.

To counter Ryze you will need range and high burst, something that will make him change his mind about attacking even if he still has rune prison up. Brand does pretty well against Ryze, or Silence champions.

Silence. A guy who machine guns spells gets punished pretty good when he's forced to shut up for a few seconds.

The hardest lane that I've had so far as Ryze has to go to xerath. The range is just too much, he can stun and poke you no problem from very far outside of your range. He can also push much harder then you so unless you have a blue buff he can leave lane fairly easily. >.<

Xerath, LeBlanc, and of course, Kassiden.

Xerath is tough, but speed boots and smart/defensive playing and you'll find the right opportunity to melt face. Yi counters Ryze hard if he's fed late game, but not in a lane of course. He'll just chop you down regardless of your rune prison. Too **** fast to keep him at range.

Kassadin can walk all over him with the silence on his Q. Xerath and Ahri can do the same with their high range. Veigar could probably take him as well after level 6/getting DFG, but early game will be a bit rough.

I was against a Ryze today as Sivir. Time your shield right, keep your distance and he'll be hating on you pretty quickly.

That said, you'll want armor pen. Ryze players usually get frozen heart so you'll want to be able to ignore as much of his armor as possible.

Veigar is actually pretty good for him, because he can just stun cage Ryze once he Rune Prisons, and combo a little. Early game is a little rough, but build a Philo Stone and focus on Q farming and it is good.

Veigar can never beat Ryze if he knows what he's doing. His main attribute is pwning AP casters, and Ryze goes mana.
