Stats and Abilities

  • Values same as live

Rising Spell Force (Passive)
Hitting a target with any of Ezreal's abilities increases his Attack Speed by 10% for 6 seconds (stacks up to 5 times).

Mystic Shot (Q)
28/31/34/37/40 Mana
5.5/5.25/5/4.75/4.5 sec Cooldown 
Ezreal fires a bolt of energy, dealing 15/40/65/90/115 (+110% Total AD)(+30% AP) physical damage (applies on-hit effects). 
Ezreal's cooldowns are reduced by 1.5 seconds if Mystic Shot hits a target.

Essence Flux (W)
50 Mana
12 sec Cooldown 
Ezreal fires an orb that sticks to the first champion or objective hit for 4 seconds.  
Hitting the orb with an ability or attack detonates it dealing 75/120/165/210/255 (+60% Bonus AD)(+70% AP) magic damage. Detonating with an ability refunds the cost of that ability +60 mana.

Ezreal teleports to a nearby location and fires a bolt at the nearest enemy, dealing 80/130/180/230/280 (+50% Bonus AD)(+75% AP) magic damage.

Ezreal winds up for 1 second to fire a long range missile that deals 350/500/650 (+100% Bonus AD)(+90% AP) magic damage to each enemy it passes through. Deals 10% less damage for each enemy hit (maximum 30%).


Ezreal has a new voiceover and new special interactions!

Special Interactions:

Choose VO: "Quest accepted! Wait, where are we going?"

Ban VO: "Hey, your loss! But... I get it."


Ezreal's in-client lore was updated:
"A dashing adventurer, unknowingly gifted in the magical arts, Ezreal raids long-lost catacombs, tangles with ancient curses, and overcomes seemingly impossible odds with ease. His courage and bravado knowing no bounds, he prefers to improvise his way out of any situation, relying partially on his wits, but mostly on his mystical Shuriman gauntlet, which he uses to unleash devastating arcane blasts. One thing is for sure-- whenever Ezreal is around, trouble isn't too far behind. Or ahead. Probably everywhere.
Ezreal's Universe page was also updated with a new bio and short story - An Explorer's Journey!
