Introduction

Hello and welcome to my Zed guide. You should find everything you are looking for and I hope you enjoy it :D


Guide Top

Summary

Zed is a mid lane assassin. though you can play him top or jungle. But were going to stick with the meta. Zed has the potential to easily carry games if he gets fed. You can pull off crazy jukes and outplays with him.But he takes a lot of practice


Guide Top

Items

On your first back your goal is to buy a Bilgewater Cutlass and maybe some Boots of Speed but that would be if you came out of lane VERY fed and farmed. Your goal is to rush Blade of the Ruined King as fast as possible. The slow and damage suits your death mark very well. After the blade you should complete {boots of mobility]] and then build a The Brutalizer since armor counters zed hard, you need to build as much armor pen. as possible. you will be using the The Brutalizer to LATER build into The Black Cleaver but wait to finish it. Next item depends on the game. If you are fed and the other team is squishy. build a Ravenous Hydra If they have a Leona and a voli bear on the team, then you might wanna build the Last Whisper first. And refer to the top for the item build too see which defensive item you should build into.

Spells

PASSIVE: Zed's passive is Contempt for the Weak Zed's basic attacks against targets below 50% health deal 6 / 8 / 10% of the target's maximum health as bonus magic damage. This effect can only occur once every 10 seconds on the same target.

Q - Razor ShurikenZed throws his spinning blades forward, dealing physical damage to the first enemy they pass through and 60% damage to enemies thereafter.

Living ShadowActive shadows will also throw a shuriken in the direction of the target point. Additional shuriken striking the same enemy deal 50% damage and restore energy.


W
Passive: Zed's bonus attack damage is increased by a percentage.

ACTIVE: Zed's shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for 4 seconds. Reactivating Living Shadow will cause Zed to swap places with this shadow.

LIVING SHADOW: Zed's shadows mimic his basic abilities. If a target is struck twice by a mimicked ability, Zed restores some energy. Energy can only be restored once per mimicked cast.

E - Shadow Slash ACTIVE: Zed spins his blades, creating a burst of shadow energy and dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. Each enemy champion hit reduces Living Shadow's cooldown by 2 seconds.

LIVING SHADOW: Active shadows also slash, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies and slowing them for 1.5 seconds. Enemies hit by both slashes are slowed more and restore energy but will not take additional damage.

R Death Mark ACTIVE: Zed becomes untargetable for 0.75 seconds and dashes to the target enemy champion. Upon arrival, he marks the target for death and spawns a shadow that lasts for 6 seconds at the cast location. Reactivating Death Mark will cause Zed to swap places with this shadow.

After 3 seconds, Death Mark will trigger, dealing flat physical damage plus a percentage of all physical and magic damage dealt to the marked champion while it was active.

COUNTERS AND LANE MATCH UPS

- easy lane for you, If she tries to Shunpo in on you. ruin her day.

- easy lane, just farm and poke until lvl 6.

- play safer pre-level 6, She will turn to nothing when you hit 6

- Hard lane for you, farm as well as you can under tower and ask for jungle help. DON'T all in her at 6. She will ult you or herself and it wont be worth it. try roaming instead.

- dodge skill shots and you will be able to win lane. be sure to kep your W up for escapes from jungle

- going to be difficult, You will need jungle presence to scare her and just try to dodge skill shots.
