Not Updated For Current Season
Hi everybody. My name is Wait Dont Killme(US-East). This is my first ever build, so i really don't know how to do much with the builder. Hopefully you guys get the idea though. This build is obviously for Ziggs, so let's begin. :)
Pros - Insane damage and farming capability.
Cons - Squishy and very slow. May also be constantly getting raged at.
For the red runes, i take the insight ones because this will give me quite a bit of damage with the mines and your ult.
For the yellow runes, i take the resilience ones because this will help me survive through many situations.
For the blue runes, i take potency ones because this will give me a ton of AP at the beginning of the game.
For my masteries, i take 21/0/9 because i would like as much of an AP boost as i can possibly recieve. I also get the 9 in utility for the mana and the movement speed because of how ridiculously slow Ziggs is.
First, i start out with abecause i like the health and the mana regen.
I then get a because again, Ziggs is very slow throughout the game.
I get a because the extra AP is awesome.
I would get another because that will help you with your mana problems.
You should then get a
I then get a because the AP will make you have crazy damage.
Your next big item is a , because your mines will give you a ton of Spell Vamp.
This next item will help you in Team Fights now. Getting a will help you immensely in surviving a teamfight when timed correctly.
Now, you are to get an . The magic resist should help, as Ziggs is pretty squishy.
Your final item is a . Good extra AP. :)
Now, my friends have always wondered why i max my E first. They think im stupid and think i should get my Q first. You should always your E first because firstly, it will help farming and two, you can cut off escapes very easily to land an awesome E then to a Q combo(I hope you know what i mean by that.. > <). I don't really use my W unless it's a really big deal, because of the long cooldown. I would save it until the time is right. Your R is somewhat hard to land, i guess. But with enough practice, your prediction should eventually be flawless. :)
I take Flash and Ghost because these two are the two summoner spells i rely on the most. You can get Clarity, if you just waste your mana like freaking crazy, in place of ghost. Whenever i use ghost, it's when i go back and i need to get back to mid lane. FAST. Using flash is an obvious thing to try and do.
Now this is pretty straight forward. Put down an E and then throw a Q on a big minion wave and BOOM they're all dead. Yay! Money! :)
Although these tricks may be obvious, i hardly see any Ziggs use these tricks.
So what you can do when you're being chased by 2+ enemies, you can set down some mines in FRONT of you. Then pop your W on yourself to your turret or base.
You can put down your E behind your mid lane enemy and then throw a Q in front of them. This will annoy them, unless he/she is playing somebody like LeBlanc or Ezreal. You must close off the as much space behind them when you place your explosive mines.
The Bottom Line
Again, this is my first build, so it probably isn't that great. I hope you guys learned at least a LITTLE bit more about Ziggs. I may play Ziggs more and update this build as i find out more tricks. This build focuses a little bit more on farming, because of you maxing your E first. I hope you guys won't rage too hard on this pretty bad build :S. Bye guys.
