Tips Against Ryze in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

7daysko says “He's in a pretty bad state this meta, but he still has quite the damage. You easily out-trade him though, and he doesn't move around much if chaining his skills. This means you get a free stun.”
LunarVortex says “Ryze's laning phase is pretty bad, he will struggle mana a lot, and he also cannot really dodge your Q. However, he will outscale you significantly, so try to not drag the game out too much. Abuse his weak laning phase with your jungler and then help them take dragons and heralds to accelerate the game.”

Ambitieux says “Ryze is mostly a skill matchup like the terror Anivia. Only difference is he can out damage you very quickly in fights and you need to be careful when taking these trades. Hiding behind minions works for the most part, but your power spike when fighting him is before his tear. And lvl 6 due to ur mobility. If possible try to poke him out in lane while last hitting, and you can easily out roam him. If he carries cleanse just play for other lanes. But if he carries tp/ignite you may try to take favorable fights. (If landed charm or such)”

BlueMoon01 says “Avoid getting close to him, disengage with W if needed ”
Dr Eggmund says “Don't under estimate his early game damage, He relies on mana so make him waste it early if he has to, just stay alive, punish him when he moves close and all in him at 6 as his ult means nothing against yours in fights. Build as much damage as you can early and beat him across the game.”

RezoneVerified says “Ryze has strong AoE/Mana sustain, spread your turrets out well! Poke him down with W and beware his snare.”

Sanctuar says “Ryze can be very dangerous once he gets his roaming on at lvl 6 due to his ultimate. Since he is running low on cooldowns on his abilities due to his kit, it is very hard to lane against him. Max Q first and wait for your jungler to gank.”

PlayCabex says “you need to play a bit more safer with him than other champions because he can outrange you with his combo (cc , e and q) try get your boots and hextech protobelt asap then you can just go all in”

Sylvan Lore says “Due to his low range, this is a matchup that Orianna excels in. You can bully him early as long as you don't let him spread his E from minion kills onto you. You should be able to zone him from minion wave or kill him and get substantial leads. Also at 6 he doesn't get a combat Ult so it is a great time to engage him. The only thing you really have to worry about is that you cannot match him in a side lane at 6 items if thats where the game ends up. Recommend: Cleanse or Ignite depending on your confidence in the matchup and Dmg Build with Merc Treads. ”

Yeager says “Take cleanse and buy mercury's treads. You outrange him with the ball, so he can be zoned in the laning phase. He has a lot of damage, so if he somehow closes the gap and gets within range, he will nuke you down, and it becomes hard to trade back because of his shield and speedboost from passive and phase rush. Keep your distance and use the range advantage to win the matchup. ”

Tips Against Ryze in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

xPetu says “Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport Tips: Passive shield his poke (not much to say here). You can E in if he wastes W. Your E stops his R.”

I Am Goliath says “Although kind of hard to hit E's in this matchup I find ryze to be pretty easy because of how weak he is early game he shouldn't really ever kill you, and if you do ever land E he is 100% dead but you may have to flash E to land them in this matchup, try to land your Q first and you can sometimes get in ranged to E him, other then that ryze loves to perma push the wave so try not to let him do that for free on you try to pressure him and push the wave back as much as possible, they will usually use their combo to push which means some of their combo will be down if you trade with them. Adaptive helm second or third item can be good in this matchup especially if it's good for the overall game, although ryze scales good, you still scale really good also.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Ryze will mostly always run Phase Rush into you. You do NOT win this lane in any logical way. He will have full control over the waves so long as he knows how to utilize his combos correctly. So just keep yourself back, preferably in bushes or to the side of your minions that are not being comboed unless he is not playing well or lining up the correct AoE spread combo. I suggest to take resolve as your secondary runes with Bone Plating and Overgrowth, and max rank your (Q) for poking only. It's often a better option to dodge this match-up entirely instead of having to go into the hard-counter, but this is personal preference. It's a farming and survival lane mostly.”

RTO says “This matchup sucks. You can't trade with him pre 6 because if you try to get on top of him, then his passive shield will negate damage. Once you hit 6, if he misses his snare, then you possibly have a chance to out trade him. Expect a rough lane and being kited out all game. Good luck. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - BAD MATCHUP. PLAY BACK AND DON’T TAKE FREE POKE. DON’T STAND NEXT TO FRIENDLY MINIONS. FIGHT AROUND HIS E(ENGAGE IF HE USES IT ON THE WAVE). LET HIM PUSH AND THEN RUN HIM DOWN. EARLY MERC BOOTS RUSH IS A MUST. WAIT FOR STRIDEBREAKER. A good Ryze is a nightmare to deal with. You essentially want him to push into you, which he does naturally, and then chase him down to his turret. He gets move speed and Phase Rush movement speed so you need as much distance as possible. Post-6 he can use his ultimate to escape and the only thing you can do to stop his Ult is your E but you need your E to start the fight anyway so good luck. An early Merc boots rush is a must, as you need to cut his root short so that you can catch him before he can escape. Don’t stand near minions as his E can spread from them, onto you, leading to him being able to get a nice chunk of damage off on you with his Q. Try to play passively during the lane so as to not take too much damage. If he is good, you probably won't kill him earlier but Stridebreaker helps in any case. If the Ryze is good, this is possibly one of the most difficult lanes in the game in my opinion.”
Drake6401 says “What could be more fair than a mage that only builds mana in order to one shot so he can stay in lane for longer without sacrificing any damage? Pretty much how this guy works. You're both burst fighters so he has the advantage being ranged and can't miss his CC. Take a sustain start so you can better share the wave early on and gain fury for fights. Use bushes to buy some time since he can't just walk in with you.”

MarkFromSingedMains says “Oof ouch please don't hit me with another ability owie. Ryze hits hard and continuously, his W denies you from getting onto him (Most of the time) and even then he itemises relatively tanky and proves hard to kill. Expect a LOT of harassment from this lane. ”

lol Wero says “Don't be scared to trade vs ryze. Similiar to the vladimir style, push all game and deny him cs under his tower.”

Justkb says “It can be difficult if you take a bad early trade. They usually take E first so try and farm within your wave. Look to poke with Q and once the wave is shoving you can run him down at level 3 once he uses W. He must use a lot of mana early to shove u in so try and capitalize on this and track his mana costs. Rush Mercs into this matchup. If the game goes too late he will just burst and poke you down with ease.”

Raen says “Annyoing match up if you meet him. Most of the time if you jump on him, he will just W you QEQ and run away. Don't stay close to minions so you won't get affected by his E+Q. Early is his weakness. Punish it jumping at his head everytime you can. Mercury must be in this match up + Adaptive is also hard counter item vs Ryze.”
