DH5: 054 -Ezreal, The Prodigal Explorer
Alright! It's the 54th DH5!
This time it looks like that mobile missile launcher Ezreal! ready to blink through walls and mystic shot you into pieces!
I'm not too sure where they were going with Ezreal's design. I think I came to the conclusion that he's kind of like a young Indiana Jones with some character from an anime that I've never seen before mixed in or something. Ezreal's proportions always seemed a little off to me for being so even, usually characters are much more varied but Ezreal has some thickness to his boyish frame that looks a little weird to me. Ez always gets a bad wrap for looking a little more feminine than the next champ but I really gotta say that it's the communities fault for being so strangely infatuated with the idea of gender swapping champions from League of Legends.
Ezreal used to be kind of the circuit when the game was shifting to the Poke mechanic. He'd keep you at range, constantly dealing out the damage and then be able to zip out of there no problem with his abilities.I believe there was a point where he was touted as the most powerful character in the game by some high-ranking players. Now though the Meta has shifted and Ezreal just doesn't seem to cut it as much anymore. After seeing some nerfs hit him pretty hard it looks like he'll never tear the map up like he used to. Is anyone an avid explorer like Ez? Then dust off some relics and leave some hieroglyphics below!
