Unleashing Zac

Screw the Meta and ignore the haters: Zac doesn't have to be a boring tank. He has the potential to be a very effective assassin.

With this Full AP build you will experience the true power of ZAC and kick *** on the battlefield. You can take down AD carries and mages easily or even initiate team fights dealing tons of damage and survive thanks to your passive or zhonya's.

Items

start with DEATHFIRE GRASP: with 120 AP + the active you will be able to take down squishy targets

ZHONYA'S should be the second item, because the active will keep you from feeding while the 120 AP will help you to deal damage.

The third item should be RABADONS DEATHCAP, because you need as much AP as possible.

VOID STAFF (a bit more Mpen) or ABYSSAL SCEPTER (more Mresist) should be next (choose depending on the situation)

RYLAI'S CRYTSLA SCEPTER is a good item to finish the build with additional AP and some HP, but if you already deal enough damage, you could choose WARMOG'S ARMOR instead.

Abilities

Max Stretching Strike and Elastic Slingshot first, because these 2 skills are your main damage sources.

Assassin ZAC has 2 goals:

1. Assassinating Single Targets:



Jump on your target with Elastic Slingshot while activating Deathfire Grasp, then punch them in the face with Stretching Strike to take them out.

2. Initiating Team Fights:



Jump into the enemy team with Elastic Slingshot, then use all your abilities and actives to deal as much overal damage as possible. Try to become the main focus of the enemy team and their attacks, then activate ZHONYA'S when you are about to die.

Summary

Full AP Assassin ZAC is a glass canon, so you have to calculate whether your damage will be sufficient or not, because if you fail to kill the enemy with your combo, then you are an easy target. Therefore ONLY attack single targets if you are sure to kill them & ONLY initiate team fights when your passive or ZHONYA's are up.

CONCLUSION: Full AP Assassin ZAC is fun to play and kicks ***. Tank ZAC is boring and lame.
