Help with Ryze?

Im confused on what runes to use with ryze. Does mana work better in yellows or blue?

Neither. Use health or armor yellows and MR blues. Mana runes just aren't worth it, especially after they shifted Ryze's stat priority around a bit.

Also use ms quints.
Build Tear>boots>mana crystal> mana crystal> sorc shoes. This build alone dominates

eh, Mp5 or Mp5/level helps with earlygame farm, a little.

but you should be building a giant pile of mana anyway so they're not exactly useful later on.

MS Quints
MPen Reds
HP/lv yellows
MR blues


Most standard build in my eyes is: Boots3->Tear ASAP->Rod of Ages->Glacial+Negatron+Mercs/Sorcs->Frozen Heart+Banshee's Veil->Guardian Angel+Archangel's

This build gives a good amount of damage, HP, Armor and MR. You'll be very tanky, do good damage, have a GA and Banshee's protection, 40% CDR, etc.

However some other items you will want to use, primarily, are Will of the Ancients (always spell vamp never die, good for double AP comps or if your support has enough gold to get one, so you can have a double WotA going), Void Staff (if multiple enemies stack MR).

Main combo with 40% CDR is: QWQEQRQWQEQ Q QWQEQ

During small beats, reposition to chase/kite. During large beats, you might fit in an autoattack. When you've ulted, try to focus a carry but also try to land skills to make the best use of your AoE damage.

Oh, and you can do 9/9/12, 9/0/21 or 0/9/21 for masteries. Offense gives you damage, defense gives you HP and Armor/MR, utlity gives you MS, Gold, Spell Vamp, XP, Health Regen and CDR. Strength of Spirit is a nice reason to go X/X/21, it's a lot of HP regen mid/late for 3 mastery points. I've been using 9/9/12 but previously used 9/0/21 and haven't decided which I prefer.

Yeah, got to hate being tanky as hell while having some of the highest DPS in the game for an AP.

He definitely fits, but he's not a safe first pick. Fairly easy to counter.
