Everything you need to know about Ezreal, the Prodigal Explorer.
Ezreal is one of League of Legends’ most unique ADC champions, boasting mobility, poke and good scaling in a very fun kit. On top of that, he has a likeable character design, a unique playstyle and a ton of excellent skins. He’s one of the most popular champions in the game for all of these reasons, meaning it’s also important to know how to play against him too. There’s plenty of reasons to learn about and play Ezreal, so let’s dive into it.
Ezreal is the true definition of an adventurer and explorer. He was born in the well-off city of Piltover, known for its economic prosperity and scientific advancements. His parents were archaeologists that held some level of fame in their time. However, because of this, they left him alone much of the time and it fell to his Uncle Lymere to raise him. Though Ezreal only dreamed about joining his parents on awesome adventures, his uncle forced him into strict schooling.
But, to Lymere’s dismay, Ezreal is essentially a genius. He barely had to study for his exams and passed them with flying colors. Because of this, he had ample time to cause mischief around his campus and develop adventuring-oriented skills, like sneaking and lockpicking. During this time, whenever his parents came home, Ezreal’s father told him about a lost tomb that belonged to a Shuriman tyrant by the name of Ne’Zuk. The legends said this Ne’Zuk possessed teleportation powers of some type.
Eventually, Ezreal’s parents never returned, and the worst was assumed. Ezreal couldn’t accept their death and gathered all the information he could about this lost tomb of Ne’Zuk. Eventually, after a long journey, he found the tomb. In it, all he found was a single magical gauntlet, which he naturally wielded and used as magical traps were set off inside the tomb to blast and teleport his way out. Quite the tool for exploring, he thought.
After this, Ezreal’s goal was to find his parents by becoming the greatest adventurer in the world. Now, he travels across every region to find fame and fortune, building his reputation all the while.
Primary Tree: Precision
- Keystone: Conqueror
- Presence of Mind
- Legend: Bloodline
- Coup de Grace
Secondary Tree: Sorcery
- Manaflow Band
- Attack Speed
- Adaptive Force
While Ezreal is fairly versatile in his runes, the Conqueror primary tree with Sorcery secondary is ideal. Ezreal’s poke is strong enough with his Mystic Shot (Q) already, so running Conqueror as your keystone provides some potency for longer, drawn-out fights. Seeing as Ezreal can sling abilities out and weave auto attacks in between them, Conqueror stacks fairly quickly to provide more stats and decent healing.
It’s also important to note that taking Presence of Mind in the Precision tree and Manaflow Band in the Sorcery tree gives Ezreal a ton of mana. Because he tends to spam a lot of abilities, mana is very important. As will be discussed later, his build helps with this as well, but these two runes are crucial for letting Ezreal players make the most out of the champion.
- Divine Sunderer (Mythic)
- Ionian Boots of Lucidity
- Serylda’s Grudge
- Duskblade of Draktharr (Mythic)
- Essence Reaver
- Chempunk Chainsword
- Maw of Malmortius
- Ravenous Hydra
- Frozen Heart
- Guardian Angel
As mentioned before, Ezreal has a lot of versatility in his build. Currently, in patch 11.11, his best Mythic item to build is Divine Sunderer. It gives Ezreal the Sheen passive, enhancing his autos after ability casts, and increases his already-potent poke damage. With this are CDR boots, fantastic for allowing him to toss out abilities constantly. Then is his mana item, Manamune. The component item to this, Tear of the Goddess, is crucial to buy at the start of the game, or early on, to stack up. Last in the core is Serylda’s Grudge, which applies a slow onto champions he hits with his attacks and Q’s. This slow is terribly annoying to enemies and makes kiting a whole lot easier.
Though Divine Sunderer is excellent, some players enjoy a build with even more damage. This build’s two core items are Duskblade of Draktharr and Essence Reaver. Essence Reaver provides the Sheen passive and some mana regeneration Ezreal needs. But Duskblade offers more damage with lethality and the fun invisibility passive. While this isn’t as reliable as the standard build, it can be quite fun and pop off harder against squishy teams.
Finally, we come to situational items. Simply put, Maw of Malmortius is good into heavy-AP teams, while Frozen Heart and Guardian Angel are options into heavy AD. On the other hand, Chempunk Chainsword is a must when up against healing champions. If you want some extra wave clear and healing, then Ravenous Hydra is viable too.
Because of Ezreal’s long-range kit and ability to blink away with Arcane Shift (W), he is a hard champion to punish. Still though, he does have some definite counters that do well into him.
As of patch 11.11, the two best marksmen against Ezreal are Sivir and Vayne. This is largely because Ezreal, though he has safety, can’t always punish his opponents in lane. Sivir and Vayne are two scaling hyper-carries that typically need to be punished in lane, lest they take over the game. Because their lane phase against Ezreal is typically pretty easy, they get the gold and items they want and need. Then, they outscale Ezreal and can either 1v1 him or outshine him in team fights. If Vayne or Sivir don’t tickle your fancy, Twitch, Ashe and Jhin also tend to have favorable matchups.
There are also some unconventional picks like Swain and Yasuo. Despite them being strange bot lane picks, they have pretty good win rates into him, but for different reasons. Swain is essentially impossible for Ezreal to kill after level six, and if paired with a CC-heavy support, can keep Ezreal locked down, unable to escape his damage. Meanwhile, Yasuo is a champion filled with dashes that can get on top of Ezreal with the help of minion waves, making it difficult for Ezreal to leverage his ranged advantage.
Considering Ezreal is a massively popular champion, it’s no surprise Riot Games has made a lot of skins for him. The full list is below, with links to pictures of the splash arts embedded in the name. If you want to see them all together, with Chromas and in-game models, check out the League of Legends Fandom page.
To note, the Legacy and Prestige skins aren’t simply available for purchase like the others. They can be obtained from loot or purchased around the holiday season, when Legacy skins are unvaulted. Prestige skins have their own requirements for obtaining.
Legacy and Prestige Skins:
Seattle Surge, Los Angeles Guerrillas advance in Call of Duty League Stage 4 Major
Seattle and L.A. kept their hopes alive.
The post Seattle Surge, Los Angeles Guerrillas advance in Call of Duty League Stage 4 Major appeared first on Dot Esports.
Facing elimination from the moment they stepped foot in Dallas, both the Seattle Surge and Los Angeles Guerrillas are moving on in the Call of Duty League Stage Four Major.
Seattle looked extremely strong in their matchup with the London Royal Ravens in the first series of the event, winning with a 3-1 map count. Octane led the way for the Surge, posting a 1.71 overall K/D, including an unbelievable 2.06 K/D in the series’ two Hardpoints. Prestinni and Gunless recorded 1.03 and 1.04 K/Ds, respectively.
Seattle is a team that could make a run, especially now with the tournament being held on LAN. They looked downright dominant at points in their series vs. London and seem to be gaining confidence as they attempt to kickstart a losers bracket run. Seattle is a team with a lot of championship experience and they showed that in their win over London.
The big news of the first day of the Stage Four major was that the Los Angeles Thieves would be without Huke due to a missed COVID-19 test. Instead, the Thieves slotted in Drazah for Huke, marking yet another roster change in what has been a turbulent 2021 season for 100 Thieves’ CDL team. Despite the solid play from Drazah in Huke’s absence, it was the other team from Los Angeles that took the series 3-2.
Chino led the way for the Guerrillas, posting a 1.16 overall K/D including a 1.54 K/D on Garrison Control. Chino was the steady hand for the Guerrillas, making the right plays at the right times. He was instrumental in L.A. closing out the Thieves in their 3-1 win on Garrison Control. No other member of the Guerrillas went positive as they were actually outslayed by 20 kills throughout the series.
Seattle will kick off Friday’s action when they take on the Paris Legion at 2pm CT. The Guerillas match up with the Florida Mutineers following Seattle vs. Paris at 3:30pm CT.

According to CoinATMRadar metrics, United States has 18,936 Bitcoin ATMs, becoming the leader globally, followed by Canada with 1,526, and the United Kingdom with 196.
What is Phemex’s all-new Learn and Earn program?
A decade ago, Bitcoin was merely a philosophical research paper for a new type of digital currency. Today, there is no major technology or financial publication or news portal with no cryptocurrency stories or blockchain news.
From being ridiculed as magic internet money backed by thin air to narratives of the wild west, nerdy money, get-rich-quick schemes, and gaining mainstream consciousness as we settle into 2021, the crypto industry has indeed seen it all.
Since Bitcoin’s inception over ten years ago, things have changed considerably. Industries across the world have embraced its underlying blockchain technology. Its main characteristics include decentralization, transparency, immutability, and automation that has the potential to create a multitude of use cases and replace legacy frameworks.
The digital asset industry has not been that lucky. The narrative of “Blockchain, not Bitcoin,” is still very much prevalent in several regions. Countries struggling with political instability and hyperinflation, such as Venezuela, and Argentina have witnessed a formidable interest in cryptocurrencies. The sentiment resembled the nations that have a massive unbanked local population.
Today, the great dream of cryptocurrency is still very much alive despite all its struggles. The cryptocurrency industry has not only unlocked access to financial services for users around the globe it has also opened avenues for new applications. The remittance, for one, can be a nightmare for many living in developing countries. Crypto and blockchain technology aims to settle transactions instantly with significantly lower or even negligible fees.
The main objective behind asset-backed tokens, on the other hand, is to grant ownership to assets like real estate and precious metals. In addition, stablecoins have their own use cases and have seen unprecedented growth because they trade uniformly with fiat. The list does not end there.
While pessimism has dwindled, there is still plenty of skepticism around the entire asset class.
What’s impeding crypto adoption?
There are numerous reasons for the hindrance. But one that stands out is the lack of education. It is a daunting issue that plagues the cryptocurrency industry even today, in this day and age when everything is just one click away. Many people don’t understand the industry. It is as simple as that.
The digital asset realm is a complex one. While there are plenty of resources to fall back on, there need to be better and more accessible vehicles, one that is perfectly curated for the newbies – simple and easy-to-follow lessons on everything crypto and blockchain. And what’s better than earning a reward for learning this groundbreaking technology? Seems far-fetched? Not anymore. Pemex’s newly launched program dubbed ‘Learn and Earn’ aims to do just that.
Singapore-based cryptocurrency exchange Phemex is one of the most prominent platforms in the world. Just two years since it was first launched, Phemex has already emerged as one of the most trustworthy exchanges in the industry. Its user base exploded quickly to over a million traders, thanks to user-friendly platforms and unique offerings.
It has recently rolled out an all-new educational program called “Learn and Earn,” which aims to provide users with simplified concepts on different cryptocurrency and blockchain-related concepts. This program includes an in-depth course structure coupled with intuitive lessons and interactive videos that offer a unique and fun learning process. But it does not end there.
Phemex plans to reward its users via Learn and Earn after the completion of each lesson. How? Users will have to take a short quiz to test their knowledge, and if all the answers are correct, they will be incentivized.
It is one of the most beginner-friendly and fun ways to learn more about the new financial world. Learn and Earn is put together into a few fundamental courses, each comprising its own set of sub-lessons. These cover introductory passages, explainer videos, and a final quiz for users to test their knowledge. Upon answering all questions correctly, Phemex offers a reward in the form of trading bonuses and cryptocurrencies.
Lean and Earn’s first set of courses proceed with the platform’s essential features. This program encompasses some core concepts about the workings of cryptocurrencies and the process of buying, trading, and selling them on an exchange. Rewards will be in the form of trading bonuses that participants can use with perpetual contracts on Phemex to exercise their proficiency on the subject matter.
In the days to come, Phemex also plans to broaden its course material and reward users directly in cryptocurrency assets. However, in order to receive rewards, the users are required to complete KYC protocols. As of now, the program is not widely available, but the team behind the project is working on expanding the Lean and Earn initiative on a global scale.
In short, Learn And Earn aims to cater to mainly the beginner but is also available for experienced crypto enthusiasts who seek to know more about the industry and how to trade digital assets seamlessly. This program is essentially for everyone who wants clarity and eventually wants to foray into the trading space of cryptocurrencies but does not know where to begin. It is open to anyone who wants to build a passive income stream by just learning about cryptocurrencies.
Incentivising users for learning about the technology, what a great way to spur adoption as well as trading activity! This will help more and more individuals dispel myths and filter out FUDs and FOMOs that are often endorsed by the critics and the flag bearers of centralized financial infrastructure.
