This is a guide on Ryze build and mastery I personally use and I MAIN ryze now. This guide will provide you the basics of what you need to know. 1. Runes/Masteries 2. Items 3. How to play during lane You will likely find the enemy rekt unless they're 2 divisions higher than you, you often find yourself rekt, or you can blame lag like everyone else.
You either dive the enemies squishes or protect your own. In teamfights it's ideal to save W for when a target is about to die or when their squishies walk up to you. Whatever you do, prioritize yourself over everyone except your ADC, unless you do more than he does.
Ryze is a really strong top lane meta pick because 1. He out lanes everyone at lvl 1 with 100 damage Q 2. You can go utility on him and still do tons of damage 3. Good speed with an ult that costs 0 mana 4. God late game if you follow the build 5. Solid solo queue champion. 6. Can play against most champs.
