In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Ryze. This League of Legends champion is a very powerful magician, as his passive is that he can damage enemies with additional damage depending on his mana amount and also increases his mana depending on his skill power. He also possesses another great passive but in his abilities they can give him a shield when his runes reach 100%. But here I’ll give you a few tips and recommend a few champions to put an end to Ryze.

Tips for dealing with Ryze

  • Avoid body to body or poke you with ease. Ryze’s skills can do you a lot of damage and at the same time his W that catches the targets.
  • Beware of Ryze’s gank and his ultimate, so I recommend displacement. As soon as you see the final skill in the teleportation zone, run to a safe zone.
  • Fight him mercilessly if he doesn’t have manna. Ryze’s skills can’t hurt you enough without a good amount of manna.
  • Use champions with CC. Ryze can gain movement speed with his rune explosion, he can also attack with his skills frequently, but if he is stopped it won’t be so annoying.
  • Ryze counter champions

    The following champions are the most recommended to be able to face Ryze without problems.

    Jarvan IV

    He has very good skills against Ryze, because if Ryze tries to appear with his ultimate Jarvan IV he will be able to stop him. If Ryze throws his ultimate at Jarvan IV’s vision, he can lock him up with his ultimate or neutralize him with his E and Q.


    This champion can face Ryze without much disadvantage, as he can farmear quite well and attack Ryze with his skills. Yorick’s W skill can enclose a small area where enemies within it are trapped. When Ryze tries to reach his ultimate with his teammates or alone, Yorick will be able to enclose that area and leave them trapped when they appear.


    This champion’s skills are pretty good against Ryze, as she can hurt him from a good position. Lux can also wait for Ryze when he tries to reach her ultimate with his teammates or alone. Lux’s combo can do a lot of damage to enemies who enter Ryze’s ultimate.


    Xayah’s skills are pretty good and can help her resist a Ryze. Xayah’s ultimate ability can make Ryze and her companions who enter her ultimate go badly, as Xayah can throw her ultimate on all of them when they appear.


    His skills help finish him off. The combo of Zilean Q, W and Q, can make Ryze and his ultimate nothing, as he can easily damage him and stop them all. Also the ultimate of Zilean allows him to revive an ally or himself, causing him that in a new fight, Ryze no longer has enough manna.

    Ryze counter items

    The following items have to be used when facing Ryze.

    Malmortius jaws

    Malmortius jawsThis object provides a magical resistance shield that resists 300+1 magic damage, when the possessor reaches -30% of life. Ryze can do a lot of damage when his mana is full, but if he does a lot of damage to you, he can take more damage if you get to the brink of death.

    Mercury Fajin

    This object takes out of any weakness the champions that possess this item when they activate it. Ryze’s W skill encloses the targets to which the skill is applied, making it easy to attack trapped enemies.
