Threat Champion Notes
1
Xerath You should be able to dodge everything easily. Your ult let's you go into melee range, which gives Xerath a really hard time.
1
Anivia Supar easy! Dodge her stun with your W, escape from her wall with your W, and get out of her ult with W. Take CDR runes here, since you will use your W a lot.

Introduction


Hai!
My name is Lemonos, and here I'm about to show you how to play Zed decently.

I mostly play assassins, and Zed is almost in every matchup my champion of choice.

I hope that I can help you out, and of course get you an inside look of Zed.

Feel free to email me at: Lemonos182@gmail.com for any questions you have about this topic.

Runes

So first of all, the main runes i use are in shown above anyway.
These deal with AP champions in the middle lane.

Here i show you, which runes you should go for if you are laning against another AD Champion.

Taking :
9x Armor Pen. Marks
9x Armor Seals
5x CDR Glyphs
4x MRES Glyphs
and either 3x Armor Pen. or Flat AD.

Masteries

These are the only masteries you should be using on Zed.
I do not think, that you can vary here.


Guide Top

Farming

In general, Zed is a farm MONSTER!
You can safe farm with your Q, you can get 2 or more minions at once with your E.
Especially your passive let's you farm easily.

Also, you have a huge wave clear with Zed, using the technique below.

(W + Q/E + Q/E)


Guide Top

Teamfighting

In team fights, you should always go for their most dangerous champion. (=very often ADC).
You can pretty much kill everyone in the game, if you are not behind.
Just make sure you ult before you land something, and you will be ok.
