Introduction

(This guide aims on presenting summoners with a gamestyle and provides some tips and tricks not shown in the spotlight. It assumes players already have a good idea about the items, runes and masteries. It doesn't provide any pictures of items or tips on farming and jungling. The guide does not take into account any patches after zac release)

Zac is an AP offtank, jungle/top laner, who excels at crowd control. His long range ganks and tankiness provides a unique variety of team combos.

Runes

The runes shown in the spotlight work best for Zac, as Zac is suppose to be played as (primarily) a tank and then as an ability power jungler. Since Zac has no mana or energy, he can be played with the same masteries and runes as Dr. Mundo, but unlike Dr. Mundo, Zac does not have attack damage. In other words his attack damage is equivalent to the auto attack damage done by most supports like Sona and Nami. Keeping this in mind his Runes can be altered to give him a boost in attack damage.

9x Magic resist Glyphs
9x Armor Seals
9x Ability power Marks
3x Magic Penetration Quints


Guide Top

Masteries

As the primary goal of Zac is to be tanky, summoners are advised to use the 9-21-0 build concentrating on Ability power and magic penetration in offense and health and armor in defense. Again keep the auto attack damage in mind when choosing the masteries, because monsters are killed quicker with attack damage.
