Zed is very difficult and skilled champion, he has high burst dmg and with new "nerf" very big escape! I like him because he is a true assassin gets in takes the kill does some damage on other champions and clean gets out ! He can easy last hit split push confuse enemy and a lot more... but on top of everything hes fun to play !

Pros Cons

+ High burst damage
+ Nice poke
+ Hard to gank
+ Great escape abilities
+ Easy to farm
Invisible text!
- Easy to counter with Zhonya's Hourglass and Guardian Angel
- Bad against cc

Greater Mark of Lethality

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage Are good for early game damage and if u get a chance for a kill at lvl 6.
Greater Mark of Armor Penetration Usual marks for assassins good for bursting enemy mid and late game.
Greater Seal of Armor and Greater Glyph of Magic Resist are usual defense runes.
But if ur playing against ad mid or easy ap mid take Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist for better magic resist mid and late game.

- Double-Edged Sword This is a good choice for zed because u deal 2% damage more, fast switching shadows will make u hard to focus and your ult will make u untergetable. So u will take less damage then apc and adc do.

- Sorcery Is good CDR for your pokes with Razor Shuriken and u can use your ult more often.

-You don't take Butcher and Feast because you can already easy last hit with your passive and you don't need to restore mana. Instead of those two put your point's in Spell Weaving and Blade Weaving mix between those two masteries will make you a deadly weapon.
Brute Force , Martial Mastery , Warlord , Devastating Strikes , Havoc More DMG bigger burst!

- Block Recovery Unyielding Veteran Scars Easy getaways and fast switching wont make you immortal you will still need a little defense and health to take some damage !

- Juggernaut Is not good choice for Zed, he doesn't have so much HP for % scaling... its simple math at lvl 18 you will have around 2000 hp 3% out of 2000 is 60 hp at lvl 18 that's nothing... this masterie is better for tanky champions. So taking Hardiness or Resistance depends who are u going against is better choice for Zed.

Item Sequence

Blade of the Ruined King

The Black Cleaver

Last Whisper

The Bloodthirster

Guardian Angel

Greater Stealth Totem
Starting items

Take Doran's Blade if u are new to zed and u want to play safe, take Health Potion always when u come back from base it will extend your time on line and give u more farm.

If you are experienced player and familiar with Zed and u will be able to handle high risks on line take Long Sword and 2 Health Potion

Dorian's shield blocks 8 damage from champion basic attacks. If the enemy champion has a lot of AA potential (Orianna, Annie..etc) get Dorian's shield. It provides a lot of sustain if u want to farm and stay on line as much as possible.

Blade of the Ruined King is most important item for Zed it will come handy many times use it to run away or chase enemy down... hes active stacks with Death Mark and provides double damage at lvl 18!

In all of your games you will have to take Last Whisper for more armor penetration needed to burst down apc-adc or even take down enemy tanks!

If your getting killed and focused make sure u take Guardian Angel with u it will give u another chance to get away or take kill.

No matter which line your on u will always need extra ward so make sure u take always Warding Totem

Late game has come and your Guardian Angel is down so much gold to spend, what to do? Well late game is most crucial moment for win or lose u want to have good items and u cant wait for your Guardian Angel to go off cooldown. Sell it and get Warmog's Armor or Randuin's Omen

Condem of the weak useful for last hitting minions.

Razor Shuriken Use this as much as possible for poke farm and harass enemy champion.

Living Shadow Great spell for farming in safe zone, cutting enemy and get over walls to run away and chase enemy.

[Shadow SlashGood for slowing enemy down and farming.

[Death Mark try to use this from best position so u can reuse it again to get out of team fights, if your fighting one on one make sure u have in mind that u have one more shadow to use and do more DMG.

Zed is pretty good at farming, with the combination of Razor Shuriken, Living Shadow and Shadow Slash u can clear out whole wave of minions... be careful when u use Living Shadow if not used in safe zone u cant use it for getaway!

Tips and tricks

-Try to save Living Shadow when u don't know where is enemy junler. Its a good gank escape.

-Always keep in mind your energy bar !

-In team fights wait for your chance to get focus on adc or squishy champs that u can burst down fast and get out.

-Use your Ignite before u ult it stacks with your ultimate and u wont be able to use it after so quick.

-Use Blade of the Ruined King after ultimate it does good DMG and stacks also with ult.

-After ultimate use Shadow Slash it will slow your enemy and will be easier to shoot him with Razor Shuriken.

-For advanced usage Living Shadow try to guess where target will run so u can use it again to catch her up.

-Keep in mind that your ultimate shadow is still behind u and u will be able to use it again to get out!
