Overview

Zed is very mobile assassin champion where you can do tons of jukes while simultaneously bursting down your target. However, all assassins are quite squishy, so you need to learn how to juke in order to defeat those pesky mages that could one shot you (especially when you don't have ult). Not only is Zed great at juking and burst, he can also poke very hard with his shurikens and shadows. If at first you do not succeed with this champion, keep trying. He is hard to learn, but once you get the hang of it you will explode the guts of many.

Build

This build, end game, will give you about 700 attack damage with armor penetration to come with it. This insane amount of damage is why you don't even need BoRK. Just follow the build and you will soar (if you're decent with Zed).

Combos

MAKE SURE QUICK-CASTING IS ON FOR BEST RESULTS

Poke or Wave Clear: W E Q

Escape: W W E (no wrestling puns intended)

Burst: R W E W Q Basic R (Do not use this combo early game unless they are below 75% HP)(Ignite may also be added to combo if needed)

All about your burst combo

Above, I have shown you your ult combo to instant kill any enemy, but it is quite complex so I will explain here. To engage, you use you R (obviously), immediately after you put down a shadow near your opponent and press E to slow them, giving you an easy opportunity to land your shurikens. (At any point in your combo, you may press W again to juke your opponent or dodge skillshots) Once your shurikens have landed, you land one quick basic attack to apply your passive and press R if you are sure they will die from your Death Mark (or ignite if you are not certain). That's about it, and if you have pulled this off correctly your enemy will be dead.

ZED CANNOT CARRY

I cannot stress this enough. Zed cannot carry. He is practically useless in teamfights as he can only go for 1 target at a time, and the target will probably be dead before your Death Mark even goes off thanks to your teammates. Once your target is dead, your ult is down and you will be nearly useless (and will probably be focused so you'll die if you don't shadow out of there).


Guide Top

That's it!

I hope this Zed guide helped you in your travels throughout League. Remember, this is my first guide I've made, so it may not be perfect.
