Ryze Matchups Overview
Ryze General information
Ryze is very weak in the early game and needs time to scale. Avoid spamming your abilities until you’ve got your Tear otherwise you’ll be forced to recall early and may miss out on getting this item.
Remember that your level 6 is far weaker then most champions as your Ultimate R is a utility tool and deals no damage. Play respectfully if the enemy is stronger than you at this time.
Your goal throughout the early and mid-game is to scale. Avoid falling behind by playing safe and respectfully until you have an item or two. Once you get into the late game, you’re going to be much stronger and have an easier time playing.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
