Seriously? Phreak maxes W before E with Ezreal?

#1ManoktheChickenPosted 6/29/2012 7:51:23 PM
Anyone else do this?

I'm not really an Ez expert, but when playing AD I don't really get W and instead just max E after Q.

According to Balls maxing W first is the bees knees now.

W allows Ezreal to win most lane fights and can't be blocked.

Unless I'm AP, then I max it after

I max E for shooter cooldowns on your escape.

Q > W > E unless you need to reposition a lot, as that yields highest damage output. W before Q if you can't ever get a clear shot (but then Q since more spam = Nifty CDR)

if you need to reposition a lot you're probably doing something wrong.

People max W in heavy harass lanes for two reasons:

It ignores minions

and

40% slow on the enemy carry allows you to come out of trades on top.

E is for lowering the CD on escapes. W for dueling carries.

W damage scales up well with leveling it.
Passes through minions.
And when you land it first in engagement on the enemy carry at bottom it gives you an instant advantage, if you land it on both support and carry, even better, land it on your support, their support, and ad carry, even bestest.

The worst thing about it is the mp cost as you level it up. Fire it 3-4 times and you're oom, hardcore. Won't even have mp to unleash your E+ignite+auto+W+auto+Q+auto combo.
