[10.20] The Jarls APC Ziggs AND THE TOWERS CRIED OUT

By OverjarlZane
About Me
Hey guys, name's Zane! Nice t'meetchya. I normally focus on odd/off meta pocket builds that I enjoy but this is one that I legitimately bring with me quite a bit. CDR Ziggs was something I started doing when they lowered the cooldown on his W a few patches back because you can get it down to like 4.5 seconds at max and just decimate towers in seconds.

Ziggs has, since his release, been one of the champs whose kits have just been absurdly fun and expressive for me. He has his niche and does it extremely well so I hope you enjoy the guide and have fun with this build!
Gameplay With This Build
Gameplay is generally similar to most ziggs. You're a poke mage first and foremost with a lot of push. But we like to go way further with his push. You're going to be aggressively looking to get towers down as fast and as frequently as possible to give you and your entire team an edge.

Early Game:
Remember you're insanely poke heavy so abuse the hell out of laners. Most have trouble dealing with a ziggs who can land his q's properly since they do a lot of damage and the cd is so low that you have a tonne of sustained damage to back that up. PRACTICE YOUR Q and try to get your Manaflow up ASAP. Back at around 1675 gold (1400/1500 with Futures Market)

Misc Tips:
[*] Try to focus your early wards on the side your Jungler isn't. They're likely to intercept most anyone who's on the side they're clearing so it's generally a better idea to ward up where they are not.
[*] Most AD assassins early will be trying to out poke you from their sheer combo damage so try to dip around minions as much as possible and freeze for ganks. Try to pull their combo pieces off as you can to do trades but don't face tank anything if you can.

Mid Game: This is where you get super interesting. Mid game you're already at ~35%CDR and have like 8-12 seconds on your W. Look to get your tower ASAP or any towers looking low on the map before 14minutes for the huge team gold since you're nearly guaranteed it with your w.

Misc Tips:
[*] Remember your Passive is what makes you deal so much damage to towers. Focus on keeping the CD off with q e and finish the tower with W. DO NOT USE YOUR W TO LOWER YOUR Q's CD UNLESS YOU'RE IN TOWER KILL RANGE it's your disengage if you get jumped.
[*] Don't forget to grab your trinket upgrade at around level 10. Normally we go blue unless red is necessary.

Late Game: You're dealing a LOT of damage now and you can take towers in seconds, look to end the game as fast as possible one good wipe is nearly always a GG due to how fast you push.

Misc Tips:
[*] Poke CONSTANTLY at this stage. They are walking through to the Nellis Airforce Base when you're there. They are constantly getting chunked by your q's and those q's hit really hard on a really low CD. Ult can be used to engage or execute at this stage.


Seriously this is a fatal flaw I see a lot of people do. It's especially important to have vision on a push-centric champ and build because you will be prioritized for ganks and you will lose games if you do not buy them.

More of just an update in general, it's really busy rn at my job (FedEx Express, that time of year with every company doing early Black Friday now) and I'm practicing learning more of the intricacies of BBCode to improve all my guides so hopefully in the coming couple of months the guide will be vastly improved for everyone. Thankfully in the past several patches there haven't been really any major changes to impact this particular build/guide so it hasn't needed to much heavy updating but I AM still planning on reworking all my guides.

Happy New Year everyone! Not much has really changed with Ziggs lately and it looks to still be staying that way in the beginning of the new season!


Been a while. Been thinking about this guide and how best to rework it. For now I'm going to lean into APC, and probably eventually fully go into APC as it's become the main way I play him, so over the next couple patches expect it to change rather drastically. For now I've added my standard end-build for his APC which DOES NOT include Twin Shadows, I know y'all will love that that's a pretty contentious item. Anyways see y'all in a few weeks!

Been a wild few weeks. Still reworking the guide but I changed up spells and matchups entirely, items are mostly the same I'll be changing those up today or tomorrow. RIP MIXER
