you arent providing any substance in your argument.
-you are saying you are not mentioning match history as part of the argument, but then u go and mention match history. Ive been about a 50% win ryze player; I probably can get that ryze win rate up to about 58% with a lil more practice on Ryze. Doesnt make mean a certain item set is no good.
-youre saying everyone is explaining to me how it sucks, which isnt an argument and in addition you are the only one in this thread trying to argue that it sucks.
- you say it heals for 40 every 70seconds, thats not true. It heals for 50 health @ level 4 every 59seconds. Which can keep you in lane a little longer; especially with Ryzes health regen, and spell vamp on his other spells.
Sorry to say this, but you aren't. Ryze doesn't need Smite, Ignite provides more gold than Smite ever could
wheres the substance. you provide no effective argument here. You go on to say that you can smite every 70seconds, which is not true. Its every 59seconds because a lot of Ryzes go summoner tree.
If I go up to the enemies wraiths at lvl 1 and smite the large wraith. thats what 35gold + 10gold from smite to me; and - 35gold to the enemy jungler. Effectively an 80gold swing + XP ,before the game has even really started.
Or maybe I smite the blue for my jungler, so he can do his first camps easy, doesnt have to go back to heal and do an earlier gank?
- you say you can use auto attacks to finish off minions cs, sure but u can also use smite too.
If youre pro and get every single minion cs in lane, then sure it might not help as much. But for most solo elo players dont get every last cs hit. So those times when Ryze would use a spell to last hit cs a minion he can use smite instead. in the first 6minutes in lane, when Ryze is off to a slow start, thats 6 saved spells.
-you say it doesnt help kill dragon? At lvl 6 being able to solo dragon fairly fast with the jungler is an added plus; or being able to quickly steal the enemies blue.
sure ignite is fine and probably preffered by most. but Ryze doesnt really benefit from the ability boost on its cooldown and his q is on such a short cooldown anyways it doesnt really pay off damage wise until later levels. + Ryze shouldnt be looking to dominate super early game anyways. The enemy hits u with a smite early game. u heal it back up with 2 smites.
