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.
Welcome to my Ziggs guide. I have been an avid Ziggs player for a while but recently I discovered a new build style that is popular in the Korean Soloque scene. I hope you enjoy the guide and find success using it.
For this build the top two spells are teleport and Ghost.
Teleport so you have lots of map pressure and are able to gank lanes and split push better.
Ghost because Ziggs doesn't need flash because of his W and with Ghost and his slows you will be able to run away or chase anyone.
For marks, use Hybrid pen marks in to make better use of your auto attack harrass in lane and to combine with frozen gauntlet later.
For seals, use Armor seals because they are too good to pass up.
For Glyphs, use AP glyphs of extra damage.
For Quints, use AP quints for even more damage.
For masteries use a standard 21/0/9 setup to get the most out of the offensive tree for AP and put 9 points into the Utility tree to get extra mana regen, the shorter teleport cooldown and the longer buff mastery. If you fell like it will be a difficult lane then you can go 9 into the defensive tree instead but you miss out on a lot for the Utility tree.
This guide is all about slowing the enemy and burning them with Liandry's. Your core items consist of Liandry's Torment, Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Iceborn Gauntlet. With these items you can keep the enemy slowed and keep thet Liandry's burning.
For boots get Sorcerer's Boots for the magic pen.
Liandry's Torment is the first core item and should be rushed. This combined with your maxed E will do tons of damage to the enemy.
Next item depends on if you are against an AD mid or an AP mid. Get Iceborn First against AD and Abyssal Scepter against AP.
Iceborn Gauntlet is good because it combos with your passive AA bonus to do lots of damage with your AA and against towers. The slow from this item also combos well with Liandry's.
Abyssal Scepter is for more magic pen. This item works well in this build because you will be able to stay in range because of all of the slows.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter is the just adds more slows to your spells. Very Important.
Frost Queen's Claim is the last item. Buying the gold generation item early gives you a bit of extra gold and later when you upgrade to this you get an extra active slow to burn your foes with.
Max Q Second because E is more important in this build because of the slow.
Max W last. This is just a 1 point wonder early for an escape or cc, the other skill are more important to max first.
Max E first of increased damage and slow so by the time you get Liandry's this spell will be maxed so you can burn your foes.
Skill up R whenever you can.
More to Come
This is the bare bones of this guide. More sections may come if this guide get popular.
I hope you enjoyed this new take on Ziggs. I hope you have luck using this build and climbing the ladder.
