Introduction

Hello summoners! I am here with my first guide, talking about Zed!

In this section I am going to have a little talk about playing style on Zed. There are many styles you can play Zed; Harass-Zed, FarmKing-Zed, Fed-Zed and Kite all in-Zed.
I like to play FarmKing-Zed because farming on Zed is so easy, you can waveclear just by pressing
Q and E :D

Now we are moving to the next part.

Items

On Zed, I like to build HP and Attack Damage, like this:

Start with:

Doran's Blade or Long Sword, 2x healthpotion.

Early goals:

The Brutalizer, Boots of Speed and Ruby Crystal.

Preparing for mid game:

The Black Cleaver, Ionian Boots of Lucidity and Vampiric Scepter

Mid game:

The Bloodthirster, Bilgewater Cutlass and 2x Dagger

Later the game goes (About 30-35 minutes)

Blade of the Ruined King, Last Whisper and Phage

Late game (35-50 minutes)

Frozen Mallet as your last item and your 6 item build is ready !

Skill Sequence

On Zed, you have to max you E, Shadow Slash. Maxing E causes you to deal incredible damage and it is one of the best farming abilities in LoL.

Maxing order:

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Spells

Just use Ignite and Flash, ok? :D

Ability explanation.

Contempt of the weak (Passive) Explanation:

What I think is that Zed's passive is like Executioner . Deals more damage to enemies with health under 50%. So when you mix Contempt of the weak and Executioner ... Oh that damage !

Razor Shuriken (Q) Explanation:

Great poking and farming ability besides Shadow Slash, his E. Also good to poke an enemy from range.

Living shadows (W) Explanation:

Escape / Attack ability, very useful to poke enemies before fight with E-> Q-> W WomboCombo :D

Shadow Slash (E) Explanation:

AWWW DAT FARM YOU CAN GET WITH IT ! Great farming/Poking ability and it has short cooldown and high damage, perfect ability for melee champion.

Death Mark (R) Explanation:

Awesome attack ability, similar to Fioras ultimate but in my opinion, even better. No words.
