Guide to Countering Ryze

  • Ryze deals most of the damage during team fights but is fairly squishy, so take him out quickly for a higher chance of winning.
  • Ryze counters a lot of melee champions because he can root them in place before dealing significant damage. He is, however, fairly weak against tanks until he gets enough AP to dominate.
  • Ryze scales based on AP and mana capacity. Don't expect him to run low on mana.
