I'm probably being trolled here, but he suggest a Deathcap at the start. This leads one to assume that his mention of Zhonya's at the end is for the item called Zhonya's Hourglass. It's a crazy assumption, I know, but just go with it.

Do not get ROA. From an experienced Ryze player, I would say FON. You need to think about the pros and cons of ROA yourself. ROA is not a mid-late game items, but it is an item you need to rush first. However, since Ryze is a poor farmer, that means rushing ROA delays core items by a lot. ROA is suitable for casters that have AOE creeping skill AND potential kill/assist skills. For example, Morg is pretty much the best champ to make ROA. Another example would be Annie. ROA became especially useless after 25 mins mark. If you believe you can net a few assits/kills and farm a ROA under 12 mins mark, then you should get it on Ryze, otherwise no. Why is FON suitable for Ryze? From Riot and other experienced players, we believe Ryze is a machine-gun carry type. Hence, Ryze is best for doing overall damage instead of bursting someone down. HP regen together with mana hp regen help Ryze gain a potential of 20 hp per second healing. Also, the movement boost help ryze attain a 430 movement speed with Merc boot. The last item for Ryze is void staff.
masteries are 0/9/21 summoner spells are flash/ignite
With these items, you should have 40% cool down reduction. You do 400 dps to carries; 250 dps to tanks. Ignite is very powerful late game, because it does true damage.
Remember, Ryze is tanky, but not a tank.

Ryze objective is to maximize his mana and survivability. Early on he needs some health and mana regen. AP is a secondary concern at best. His most used spell as a 0.2 AP ratio, and scales with 10% of his mana. This should tell you something.

Good items for Ryze:

* Glacial Shroud - mana, armor, and needed cooldown reduction.
* Rod of ages - LOTS of mana, very high health boost, less needed AP. very efficient.
* Tear - Large amount of mana. Ironically, Archangels doesn't really help us as much for its cost. It adds MP5 and AP which we don't need so much, so you only take AA after the 600 cap is hit.
* Banshees - health, mana boost, plus the magic resist. The best anti-magic item for Ryze.
* Sorc Shoes - You dont need Ionic for CDR and this heavily boosts your damage.


I start with a Sapphire and 2 health pots. This provides +20 dmg to his Q, some extra spells before OOM, and lets him regen health decently.

You want a CATALYST as soon as possible. This will prob take 2 backs unless you get a lucky kill which is unlikely esp as you want BOOTS (and a Ruby Crystal hopefully) on your first B. Catalyst is fantastic for Ryze. It provides huge health regen and mana regen. With 250 mana every levelup (which is every 2 minutes or so?) it is more than equal to a Tear. The health regen is very nice too and provides a good toughness boost.

THEN, get a Tear. One would think the Tear first right? No! A catalyst will make you tougher and regen a LOT more health and mana than a tear does. With a catalyst AND tear, your mana will last and last, which really lets you go off and boost your max mana.

Upgrade to Sorc Shoes for the magic pen, which is a large damage upgrade.

Now, go ahead and upgrade the Catalyst to a Rod of Ages. Rod provides over 600 health and 700 mana which is a TON.

To enhance our survivability, get a Negatron and Chain mail now. This plus Rod health makes you very tough.

Upgrade the Chain to a Glacial Shroud. The 15% CDR, plus the 10% from your Q, plus 15% from 9-0-21 and CDR runes maxes you out. This turns you into a machine gun relatively early. Plus Shroud adds even more mana.

Upgrade to Banshee for even more health and mana, plus spell block.


You are pretty much set. You can upgrade to Frozen Heart if you need the extra armor and anti-AD.
Upgrade to Archangels will add some AP for your bouncy and Prison and boost your mana a bit more but it is low priority.
You also have another slot to use as needed for maybe a Guardian's or whatever else you might want.
