Introduction

Introduction



In-depth guide under Construction!



Hey there!
So, today i will be telling you how to play Zed and why you should pick this build :D !

Zed is a melee burster just like Pantheon and Talon, even through he is abit diffirent from those.
Zed is not only a burster. This guy can even play well with attack speed, even through i wont recommend it.
Zed can jungle, and eventually play solo top.

Summoner Spells

Summoner Spells

Jungler summoner spells:


Smite: Smite makes your jungle go much faster, i will soon upload a video showing you how fast.
space
Ghost: Ghost is awesome for jungling, you will be all over the map with this spell. Use this spell to get around faster.
space
Exhaust: Exhaust is alternative. If you are a jungler who is very experienced you should pick this for easy ganks. I recommend this for experienced junglers only, cuz they know how to get around the map fast.

3x3 summoner spells:


Flash: i strongly recommend Flash for 3x3, no need for Ghost because of the small map. Flash can be used as escape mechanism or a follow up for a kill.
space
[SUMMONER SPELL HERE]: Ignite

Abilities Explained!

  • PASSIVE: This passive is excellent for jungling! Contempt for the Weak makes your basic attacks hit 6/8/10% of their maximum health, if the target is under 50% health. But of course you have to use it the right way!
    How to use it correct: This passive is great for the small camps, use a Shadow Slash followed up by a basic hit on the smaller ones which activates his passive(usually).


  • ABILITY ONE (Q): Razor shurikens is your ranged harassment, but as jungler you wont need ranged harassment. As a jungler will your Shadow Slash be your main source of damage.
    This is the ability i max at level 18, and im gonna tell you why. Your Living Shadow passively gives you 5/10/15/20/25% bonus ad. Which means that your Q will get more damage everytime your level Living Shadow, Thats why you should max Q as the last.


  • ABILITY TWO (W): Living shadows is Zed's sign, this is the thing that makes Zed, Zed. This ability mimics your Q and E abilities, in addition you can change place with your shadow once if you activate W another time after summoning it.
    This ability is the one i max at level 13, mainly because its a great escape mechanism and gives you +25% bonus ad at level 5.


  • ABILITY THREE (E): Shadow slash is your main source of damage, low cd and high damage! Shadow Slash will also be the ability you will start jungling with.
    This ability is the one i max at levl 9, mainly because of its damage and low cd.


  • ABILITY FOUR (R): Death mark is an utility ultimate, this makes Zed untargetable for a few seconds. This makes a shadow, this shadow does staack with Living Shadow which means when you burst with your ultimate you will have 2 shadows, and yourself. this is where it gets hard, if you have a calm mind you will be able to move around using your shadows as teleports. This will freak your foes out of their minds.
    As for all ultimate you should level this every time you can 6/11/16.
