Top 5 Builds for Ezreal

Ezreal, The Prodigal Explorer is a mage marksman, played mostly bot or mid. He has mixed damage, therefore quite hard to build resistance against.

He is also quite flexible, his E providing a teleport to a close location, kind of like a Flash. He works best with items: his Q applies on-hit effects, so items built from Sheen give him automatically bonus damage on Q.

His W is used to get mana back and can be used to siege turrets, providing bonus magic damage on Ezreal’s next attack or ability, refunding also the cost of that ability.

His R is a global shot, much like Jinx’s or Ashe’s, however, Ezreal’s deals damage to all enemies and monsters hit.

Build 3-Full AP Ezreal (Mid again)

This build makes Ezreal depend on his abilities even more, but deal much more damage with W and E and R, while losing some damage on Q. This build is even better for taking down turrets-at max range, W+basic can take about ¼-⅓ of turret’s HP.

Build 4-Support Ezreal (played in Grandmaster)

A mixed build, with sustain and lots of damage, so poking the enemy for lots of HP, then letting the ADC finish them is the best strategy. Again, with lots of AP, it is quite easy to take down turrets in a short time.
