Threats & Synergies
Hide behind minions and dodge to avoid Q damage.
E + auto when he tries to remove your passive. Prioritize moving away from his sand soldiers to avoid an early trip to lumbridge.
Will try to E (Event Horizon) to hit you with his W (Dark Matter) keep moving and dodge it.
Dodge W (Seismic Shove) or you're fucked. Winning trades/lane is very important or she'll farm your bot/top lane since she outroams you with her ult. Prob best to take TP to counter that.
Your ult counters her passive but you will need to poke her pre-6 before all inning or she will get away. Threat of dying is non existent just don't let her auto to remove your passive for free - always trade with e+auto if she tries to do that. She will roam so you'll have to pay attention and follow to avoid her farming your bot lane until they're worth less than a lane minion.
Just ban him
Pushes faster and outranges you. Do your best to dodge as many abilities as possible and don't get greedy and overstay when low HP.
Too beefy to 1v1 after he hits level 6. If you don't manage to kill him in lane just roam!
Keep your distance, stay away from his W (Living Shadow), and dodge his Q (Razor Shuriken) When he ults immediately Q behind you to silence him, E+W+R+Ignite. If you don't manage to get your W off you won't be able to kill him unless he's already under half HP so just run away. To secure the kill make sure you have 2 W stacks (from casting spells other than W) to summon extra voidlings for much more damage. If he rushes Hexdrinker/Maw your chances of 1v1ing him are non existent so just shove lane with e+w and roam. You'll need to follow him when he roams to avoid him from snowballing off your team but be careful of him baiting you into a bush since he will easily 1v1 you. Play it safe and take a longer way around when following zed's roam but let your team know he will get there first so they don't go in and feed.
