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.

(not over yet)
I speak Spanish, therefore it's taking twice as much work to translate for
Hi guys i'm Karoto_0 (Kragget summoner name) and this is my new guide about junling ZED. I'm working hard to bring you a good guide and I would like to give me all kinds of advice to improve.
ZED is a champion that should confuse your opponent, with their shadows, making him a faster jungle clean and good on ganks
not my fault if u think this is awful ¬¬
but helps xD
and is just started
This is the jungler guide and i'll do a line guide ZED soon, for that reason. i have to change the runes when junglig, but use the correctly runes when lining.
Now I will explain u why I chose these runes
+13 armor this runes makes you harder in the jungle
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist bcoz at lvl 9 u will have +12 magic resist the same than take 9 Greater Glyph of Magic Resist and u re not lining so you don't need too much magic resist at beginning
+10 Attack Speed, useful to clean the jungle
Greater Quintessence of Desolationis another choice gives u +10 Armor Penetration, and have a good combine with the masterie Weapon Expertise
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed is other very good coice if u want to move faster in the jungle and keep helping lines
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction can also be useful for jugler this give u a -5.85 bonus CD add Sorcery and u will have -9.9 bonus CD that means more damage with ur E Shadow Slash
I take 21 - 9 - 0 on masteries to maximise ur damage on ur abilities.
Now I'll just explain some Masteriess and see what effect they have on zed
lets take a look...
Butcher : just for the 2 AD bonus damage to minions and monsters.
Sorcery : nice 4% cooldown reduction (add The Brutalizer) u will use ur E like a basic atack xD.
Weapon Expertise : conbines this mastetie with Sunder and the The Brutalizer or Greater Quintessence of Desolation. this combination of masteries items and runes it's quite good to zed.
Vampirism : +3% Life Steal = 3% more survival. it helps u on jungle at beginning.
Executioner : (this masterie rebember me Darius's ultimate x_x) but works on ZED too and with the ultimate wors better 6% more damage always is wellcome.
Hardiness : is a good choice if u re a melee fighter and u re junling +6 armor resist = 6% more survival.
Durability & Veteran's Scars : this masteries gives u a bonus healh (+36 bonus health at lvl 1) sometimes you're on the brink of death but this health bonus is that will save you.
Items and Others Viable
It gives you more sustain in jungle and is part Madred's Razors.
Also you get 5 Health Potion on start if you pick this item. this have to be ur starting items dont pick Boots of Speed or Vampiric Scepter bcoz u will die on golem or red i'll explain this later
Boots of Speed
Main and the best starting for most of the champions. but this is the second item u have to buy
it gives you the best result when jungling with Zed. Also is a part of Wriggle's Lantern.
and another part of Madred's Razors and give u 10 bonus attack damage
The item gives some life steal, attack damage and nice passive for farming (20% chance to deal 425 magic damage to monster/minion on hit). The active gives you free ward and that is more than useful for jungle and help teammates
Heart of Gold
the best item "gold per 10 sec" u can get if u re jungling bcoz u gain extra gold just for "walking/ganking" and is a part of randiun's omen
Against heavy CC Enemy champions and give u magic resist v/s AP champions jungler like Elise and Diana
buy this item when the enemy Carry is feed XD or the enemy solo top is a stonger AD champion like Fiora, or Xin Zhao
Pros / Cons
1.- Kage Bunshin bcoz Living Shadow is a real clon that can do damage and use abilities, not an ilucion.
2.- so u have to use ur habilities in less that that time
This skill will be your best attack, so maximize this skill first, after Shadow Slash bcoz is the first skill u have to learn
This ability is the essence of Zed, is this which gives its surname - the master of shadows. I love this skill u can gank with this, u can scape, do double damage, u can go through walls, everything and also gives a percentage bonus AD passively. but take just 1 point and maximize the last.
not the great potential of Zed, but is the most effective in the jungle. has less CD than Razor Shuriken, so u'll do more damage. also reduce the CD of Living Shadow per target hit. take 2 points on this skill to clean the jungle faster, and maximize at second
this skill makes u dash to an enemy (no1 can stop that) and places a shadow behind the target
use this skill when ur target is running away or used Flash, also like most ultimates use it to kill ur enemy
Creeping / Jungling
When jungling, take the first point on E Shadow Slash and
start with blue u need the 20% CD blue buff
use ur next skill point on Q Razor Shuriken
hit all wolves with ur Q and use E, and E, and E again. go to the wraiths do the same.
take a health potion if u need it.
now Red buff will be a little complicated bcoz u dont have Smite on CD. bcoz u re a faster jungler i say that before ...
but u need the ur ( Kage bunshin) Living Shadow
Two options: "to take 1 point on W"
1.- go golems use ur E and Q then take red later
2.- kill red without Smite and take golem easily with smite (rebember use Smite on the bigest golem)
go to the wraith camp they will respawn when u come
reach lvl 4 use the point on Shadow Slash. and search for a gank
