Never thought of it like that... Definitely RQWE if you're with a Soraka though?


I'm by no means a pro Ezreal, but I always prefer W. The AS reduction is largely underrated by Ezreal players, I think. It completely neuters the enemy carry's AS, preventing them from trading and straight up winning you a trade/duel if you can land it. It does more burst damage. It also can't be stopped by minions, and it's AoE. The AS increase portion can make a huge difference if you have an AD jungler like Nocturne and you do an early dragon. It just overall has more of an impact. Q can always be avoided by hiding behind minions, so it's not reliable when laning, even if you have a Soraka to feed you free mana.

That's not very good logic. Since it's such a short cooldown, you gain more from only minor increases to its damage.


True, but you gain more total damage by maxing W first in both terms of damage you do and damage you reduce the enemy AD carry in a trade. The only enemy AD carry i would max Q first over is graves, and maybe tristana simply because they thrive on burst, but moreso graves because he also has his passive to auto win trades over time.

W can be shot through minions for early harass + the damage is good if maxed early. It's also one of the most devastating attack speed debuffs in the game allowing Ez to trade really well with anything that has a attack speed steroid. You're still better off going R->W->E->Q with or without a soraka.
