trinity force

a adc should be able to deal TONS OF DAMAGE

but iceborn does make cc more consistent than tryforce

i will go ahead and say its a personal choice and not something that can be said and declared permanently by any one

Depends on whether you're going for a poke and kite game or a bursty game.

Frostborn ensures that enemies without a strong closer will never get to you. It also lets you peal for your team.

Trinity force gives you a bit of HP, Movespeed and a fair bit more overall damage.

It's situational. If you have a strong poke comp (2+ poke champs on your team such as Nidalee and Jayce), get Frostborn.

Trinity Force. I played ezreal ALOT and i say that trinity force is way better. As ezreal you are an ADC you need the damages. Iceborn Gauntlent gives you armor cooldown reduction ability power and a slow. This is not good stats on an adc. You do not need ap on an ADc and armor isnt really that good since you want dmg early on. Cooldownreduction is ok but again it doesnt increase dmg. It also give 125% sheen proc BUT Trinity force gives 150% sheen proc which is more dmg. Trinity force also gives atk speed which is more dmg and crit chance which is more dmg and movement speed which is helpful it also gives health for more tankiness. Trinity force for tons of dmg. Iceborn guantlet for NO dmg and just an annoying poke which they can regen in a second the poke from iceborn gauntlet is soooo weak it does like 60 dmg out of a 3000 hp bruiser. Iceborn guuntlet LAME.

Iceborn Gauntlet is better than trinity force on EZ. Below are the reasons.

1) Ez scales amazingly well with both ap and cdr thanks to his skills all having ap ratios, and the low cooldown on mystic shot providing him with crazy spam damage as well as reducing his arcane shift cd. Ez is at his best with as much CDR as he can afford in his build. IBG gives it to him on a damage item which really suits EZ. With Max CDR, Ez will still get an IBG proc on every mystic shot which occurs every three seconds.

2) Ez lacks a wave clear ability unlike most other ADC champs nowadays. It is one of Ez's greatest weaknesses as an ADC. IBG erases that weakness by making his mystic shot do AOE damage. It actually completes Ez as an adc package. Without it, Ez lacks a vital component for pushing lanes.

3) It allows Ez to kite. Ez is already a slippery champion. IBG lets him arcane shift faster and kite better than Ashe. It's insane.

Ok, that should answer your question. Additionally, the nerf really doesn't effect the things about IBG which make it such a great fit for his kit.

trinity does more damage and does basically the same thing as ice born, there is a reason that all of the pros have stopped using ice born after the nerfs and have reverted back to the regular trinity force on ez.

In my opinions you'll want "Tons of Damage" Everything about it works with ezreal the ms as and the phage procks. Its an amazing item on him!

Trinity Force:
You're doing well, you need to deal more damage, you realize that as an AD Carry, you actually need to auto attack and maybe even critical.

Iceborn Gauntlet:
You're not doing so well; you need to kite consistently to stay alive. You don't need damage so much as utility and you need some armor and CDR for your E/ult.

Situations. They arise.
