That's not accurate.
Ryze does almost entirely magic damage, yet his ap ratio is atrocious and should be focusing on building mana and cdr.
Akali is a hybrid champ that does both physical and magic damage, same as jax.
AP = ability power
ap doesn't necessarily translate to magic damage, and ad doesn't always translate to physical damage as far as abilities go - you need to look up their detailed descriptions, and the wiki is great for that.
