Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
How you all doing, waffleofdeath here from WATAT and i am going to tell you about an awesome champion who is deadly. this is the build i use all the time but works best with a teammate who plays well as either Volibear or Singed (to take advantage of flings).
Pros / Cons
Excellent damage output.
Ult can go to extreme ranges
about every 12 sec you do burts basic damage.
if you miss his abilities you will wast your mana and lose an escape technique
need to chain skills together if you are fighting alone.
These runes work pretty well, giving you a nice amount of bonus damage with your spells. i also find myself running low on mana with Ziggs so the mana runes definitely help a lot. the cooldown reduc also gives you the upper hand against other Ziggs or nukes. you could be in the second casting of all your spells while the enemy nuke is just starting their second castings. if your not a cooldown type of person just go for more flat AP blue runes. other then that you should keep the other runes.
these masteries are a more supportish build. it will keep you alive longer and help you catch up or escape enemy champs.
the main items you want for sure are the sorcerer shoes, and Lichbane. Lichbane works with Ziggs passive very well. i have Ziggs deal a burst damage of 300+ basic attack damage at least every 12 seconds so Lichbane is a must. this build how ever gives very little protection so you need to rely on your minefield, and bonus movement speed from masteries and Lichbane.
These spells give you bonus mobility and a better why to spot Ganks and possible Ult skill kills. if you dont like this go for Flash and ignite.
How to use Ziggs with this Build
as Ziggs most people take his Q (bouncing bomb) first, i go for his E (minefield) for the higher damage output and a way to escape and keep enemies from escaping. also great farming with this late game. if you have a Voli or singed their fling can put an enemy in a perfect spot for you to throw a minefield down. once you get his ult you may feel like tossing nukes whenever you can, DONT. save those nukes for tough enemies or for fleeing enemies just out of you and your teams range. Clairvoyance helps me spot enemies trying to Gank and spot enemies trying to hide with low health. ill then toss my nuke at them, hopefully granting me a kill. His W (satchel) is great for running away or to close the distance between you and the bad guys. With this build i was able to kill a Warwick AFTER he hit me with his ult and by myself. i escaped with only a small fraction of my health but got the kill as my team came in and held the enemies away as i ran. one last thing, Ziggs passive has a 12 sec cooldown but the cooldown decreases if you use his abilities, thus why i run out of mana fast. Ziggs is powerful if you chain his abilities together well, and play tactical. keep your Satchel ready for running away or enemy placement. Plz thumbs up and leave some comments.
