Pre-Season 2023 Zed meta

By Whitelies
Hi there. If you see a guide that has the same title and background as mine, that's me. I just forgot to verify my email so I had to start all over again.

Anyways. I'm an experienced Zed user from PH. Played League for 8 years

I will be updating this guide of mine whenever I have time. It's a pleasure to meet you all and I hope you enjoy reading my guide.
I am a GM peak from server called Philippines. Can help you with whatever knowledge I have. Feel free to ask I'll update my profile weekly so you'll know about me.
About Zed
Most players think Zed is a carry champ. No. He was never a carry champ. He is in fact a snowball champ. If you snowball with Zed, you can guarantee a win. Because you can delay other enemies. You'd make sure you can turn this game around. However, he falls behind in late game. Before that happens, end the game as soon as possible. Or atleast help your ADC/Toplaner deal with that once they scale.
Pre-Season Zed
As you all noticed, Ravenous Hydra (soon to be changed) got adjusted. It is now just like Mejai's stack. But AD and Omnivamp. When it reaches full stack, you get 13% omnivamp. Buy that along with Eclipse you'll get 21% and with full stack conqueror, you can pretty much heal just like Aatrox. It's your biggest advantage.

You mostly want to take it easy with Zed.. don't get too cocky just because you won the laning phase. The game isn't yet over.

I'm not too sure about anyone with Jungle Zed. But for me, I think it's the best. You can easily steal objectives with Zed's W and R. An easy in and out for you when you engage. Because of the last patches, Zed received some nerfs. I recommend that you max W before E. You can manage energy very easily and increase your chance of survivability (That is if you're using conqueror.)
Runes for Zed.
For the runes, you may only take Resolve as your secondary rune if your opponent in lane is a hassle. Be it Zoe, Qiyana and so on. You can take Bone Plates if they are combo. Otherwise, go with Second Wind. And go with Unflinching if they're CC champs. Otherwise, take Overgrowth to last long in laning.

For Precision, Cut Down, Coup De Grace and Last Stand. When do you take them?

Cut Down = High max health scaling champs or tanky bruisers like Sion, Garen, Darius, Cho'Gath, Ornn
Coup De Grace = Those who can sustain or with enchanter healers like Soraka.
Last Stand = Your clutch rune vs Fighters/Assassin

For Inspiration, you can take Magical Footwear, Minion Dematerializer, Cosmic Insight, Biscuit Delivery and Future's Market

When to take them?
Biscuit Delivery for sustain
Future's Market for gold management (Can let you get Serrated Dirk by 4 mins if you cs properly)
Magical Footwear for faster roaming.
Minion Dematerializer if you can't get close to cs. Use it on two cannons then one sword minions. It increases your damage on them.
Cosmic Insight for Item and Summs Spell haste.
