Abilities



This is Zed's passive. This is what makes him great at farming and also gives him extra burst damage. With Contempt for the Weak, your basic attacks will deal more damage if your target has health below 50%. However, you can only have an attack like this every few seconds.




As a Jungler, this is a little side ability that gives you some extra damage, but in late game, it contributes greatly to your burst damage. I suggest maxing this skill second, as it doesnt help as much in the jungle as much as Shadow Slash. Using this skill in combination with your Living Shadow will give you great amounts of damage.




This is the most exciting ability for zed. It is his built in slash and its what gives most of his damage. Living Shadow Sends out a shadow form of Zed that can mimic his abilities. Activating the skill again and it sends Zed to his shadow, swapping places. After you activate it once, you cannot activate it again to go back to your initial position. This skill has a very strong passive, which is giving Zed an attack damage percentage increase. It increases the more you level up the skill. This skill is what gives Zed his massive damage later in the game.




This skill makes zed viable for jungling. It is essentially a small radius area of effect strike that slows and deals damage within its radius. If a target is hit by a shadow slash from your Living Shadow and by Zed, the damage output is increased and the target is slowed for an even higher percent.




This is zed's ultimate. For a short time, Zed becomes untargetable and spawns a shadow behind the target. Zed plants a mark (although its more like a bomb) that explodes after 3 seconds. The more damage done to the target while the mark is active, the more damage the explosion will do. Used correctly, this skill can make zed legendary. Even though people escape from the wrath of your burst by 100 health, they'll die shortly after from the explosion.

Jungling

Everbody has their own jungling methods. I believe it is most advantageous for Zed to start at blue buff for the energy regeneration and the cooldown reduction, which for both he'll rely heavily on. If you're looking for an early gank, then starting at red buff might be a better idea.

Summary

Well thats all for now. Please comment and rate, i'm open to suggestions for my guide! Hope you enjoyed this! :)
