Let me introduce myself. I´am that kind of player that plays League for fun not for ranks, and i will like to share my experience with you guys about my favorite champion in this game. Zed.

Guide Top

Pros / Cons


+ His passive is great farming tool as well as for finishing low health champions.
+ Huge burst
+ W is great escape tool
+ Energy user which help you spam abilities
Zedis without doubt one of most popular champions in the game. Chances that you run into Zed are OVER 9000!! He has one of biggiest burst in game (AD chamnpions). Use your poking combo in lane Living Shadow+ Shadow Slash followed by Razor Shuriken. This combo lets you make poke your opponent so hard that he will lose like one third of his health.

- Very squishy
- His ult can be countered by Zhonya's Hourglass
- Quite hard to master
- Poking eats a lot of energy
Spamming your combo cost a lot of energy so ask jungler for crest of the ancient golem . His escaping relying on his W Living Shadow which have long cooldown. If your opponent manage to counter your Death Mark with Zhonya's Hourglass you are pretty much useless due to long cooldown on your ult.

Skill explanation

// Targets below 50% he deals an additional 6 / 8 / 10% of their maximum health as magic damage.
// This is best farming tool in the game. You can farm much easier when trying to last hitting minions. Also its perfect executing champions or stealing Dragon or Baron Nashor

// Zed throw his shurikens, each dealing 75 / 115 / 155 / 195 / 235 (100% bonus AD) physical damage to the first enemy they pass through and 45 / 69 / 93 / 117 / 141 (+60% bonus AD) physical damage to enemies thereafter.
// Spam the s**t out of this ability. Its your bread and butter and it works great with your W Living Shadow. Use it to poke at long range or farm minions when playing safe. Don't forget your shadow can throw shurikens too.

// Passive: Zed's bonus attack damage is increased by 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 25%.

Active: Zed's shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for 4 seconds. Reactivating this ability will cause Zed to switch positions with this shadow.

// Great ability. This makes Zed ZED :). Use it as escape tool or as combo tool. You can also juke your opponents skillshots with this and go all in.(if used properly)

// Zed create a burst of shadow, dealing 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+80% bonus AD) physical damage to nearby enemies.
// Great follow up after you Death Mark use it on champion to lower your cooldown on Living Shadow or use combo Living Shadow+ Shadow Slash to slow your enemies. Use it as escape tool or poke.

// Zed becomes untargetable and dashes to target enemy champion.After 3 seconds, the mark will detonate, dealing physical damage equal to 100% of Zed's attack damage plus 20 / 35 / 50% of damage dealt of all magic and physical damage dealt to the target by Zed and his shadows while the mark was active.
// Yaaay. Ability that makes your opponent hate you. If you use it properly with your other skills you can make your opponent walking corpse or make really good outplay. Using this ability as juking some skills that can hurt you can save you. For example: used Charm to burst you. What you need to do is to press your R before Charm hits you and kill her. USE IT PROPERLY THIS THING HAVE LONG COOLDOWN.

For runes i run:


Greater Mark of Attack Damage

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Lethality

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

I like these runes because you can combine them and you have runes for other champs. For example if i want to play ADC i will remove these quints for attack speed quints.

Spells i like to use:

BEST spell in the game. I don't need to write about this spell do i?
using this spell in your whole combo (including Death Mark)can secure you kill and makes your opponent without chance to use Heal himself.(work great against ADC)

Do not forget to use this item. Its great for chase down your target and assasinate them, or heal yourself for 10% of your target health... your choice.
You must bouy this item for Aromor penetration you need this to assassinate your target.
For 100% they will have tank in their team so buying this item helps you to do some damage to him so definetly buy this.
good item to increase your AD and it gives you nice lifesteal so you can sustain longer definetly worth buying it.
really good item on Zed gives nice amout of health and passive is also great. Even your abilities can stack armor penetration so you can assassinate you target much faster.
Another chance to live? Why not! This gives you nice defensive stats as well. I personally never used it because when i die i want to know what kind of mistake i did so it never happens again. But feel free to buy its really great item.
