Tanky Zac.... Immortal beast !
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.
Zac is the product of a Zaun experiment to manufacture a hexchem-engineered supersoldier – the Zaun Amorphous Combatant. Combining brute strength with limitless flexibility, he is a versatile juggernaut: a creative fighter who bounces over obstacles and pounds his foes into submission. Though he was created inside a weapons laboratory, Zac was rescued and adopted by two loving parents who raised him to be a kind and friendly child. As the years passed, he grew up to be a fierce hero, sworn to protect the ordinary, everyday people of Zaun.
Long ago, two Zaun scientists developed an organic substance that could withstand extreme conditions, spontaneously alter its biological structure, and generate tremendous amounts of kinetic force. As the scientists, husband and wife, watched the prototype grow from a spoon-sized droplet to a small blob, they noticed that their creation would respond to their presence. It sprung forward when they called and bounced when they sang. The couple began to see more than an experiment; they saw a small child, filled with affection and joy.
After testing the prototype one evening, the scientists placed the blob back in its cage. It slouched and shuddered in the corner, inconsolably sad. At that moment, the couple realized that their beloved creation wished for a free life outside the lab. They were struck by their conscience and could not allow the prototype to be used as a weapon. The husband and wife fled with the young blob, replacing its weapon designation – Zaun Amorphous Combatant – with a proper name: Zac. In a quiet neighborhood far from the cities of Zaun, the scientists raised Zac as their own child.
Zac was always different from the other children. None had his powers of strength and flexibility, so the couple taught him to tell right from wrong and to use his gifts responsibly. Thanks to the care and affection of his loving parents, Zac lived a peaceful, happy childhood.
That childhood ended when the Zaun laboratory finally found Zac. Unable to replicate the formula used to create the amorphous prototype, the laboratory's staff never stopped searching for the scientists and their experiment. When they tracked down the family, they threatened to tear it apart. The staff abducted Zac's parents and demanded that the couple assist in his capture and return. Seized by the fear of losing his freedom and his parents, Zac unleashed every ounce of his raw energy and mass for the very first time. He subdued his parents' captors, sent the laboratory's workers fleeing, and brought his loved ones home. From then on, Zac vowed to defend all ordinary lives threatened by extraordinary treachery and wickedness. Originally built to destroy, he now protects the innocent and the helpless.
“Even if you don't have a spine, you still have to stand up for yourself.” -- Zac
Pros / Cons
+ High hp
+ Easy to escape with his E
+ Hard to kill because of passive
+ Great ulti, multi targeting
+ Good crowd control since all his skills multi target
- Doesn't deal much dmg to single targets
- Weak without ulti/passive
Why top line ?!
I believe Top is the right lane for Zac because:
When he's Top he can keep to himself, Like Nasus early game they don't have huge damage, which means farming is your key priority to winning late game.
And with and endless supply of minions walking straight into your Gooing arm's. and with the clear potential that Zac has it's easy to sit and farm.
Also, because of his Passive Cell Division when ever you get poked or ganked, all you have to do is simply use a few skills collect your droppings and your back to normal again. I find Zac has one of the best lane sustain kits made so far for League of legends, and the best part of it all is if you do get tower dived, your other half of your passive will revive you if 1/4 of your cells live.
And many times i have revive under my tower from being tower dived, and killed the enemy after i revived.
It's easy for Zac to farm creeps, since all his spells are AoE, when farming creeps you should use the primary AoE spells, Unstable Matter and Stretching Strike, and since you stack Stretching Strike first, you should make sure that the creeps are infront of you so you can hit them all with Stretching Strike. Just use Unstable Matter to hit all creeps around you.
CS comes flying !
In summary, If you like a Tanky Dmg Dealer with loads of CC and Immense DMG then Zac is for you.
This has been the more valuable buy so far. I'm glad I chose to buy him because he's just out right amazing, He's worth every penny.
I'd like to throw a shout out to jhoijhoi for his 'Making a Guide' It helped me Make this.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you dominate the fields of justice with this profound Champion.
