W is not the only escape for Zed, Death Mark is too, since you main Zed, i'm assuming, you probably already know.
As for Flash, alot of people use Ghost too, with Champions like Hecarim (His Ultimate is like a mini flash, and his passive scales with movement speed), Udyr and others.
No Doran's Blade start?

Not a bad guide :) I'd like to point out a couple things though:

No Doran's Blade start? I'll be honest, I don't play Zed all that much, but I have enough experience to know that it's pretty viable. Same thing with the Long Sword + 3 health pots, but I don't think that's as good. I personally don't think boots are the best option for starting, as it gives you little all-in power.

Including a trinket and enchantment in the example end build can never go wrong :)

You probably should include the runes and masteries explanations soon. They're very important aspects of a guide, and leaving them out is definitely not good. While it may seem perfectly reasonable to you, a Diamond player, it may not make sense at all to a player who's just starting out and has only played a couple games.

Finally, while you've demonstrated an impressive use of BBCode, you don't need a different color for each idea you talk about. It makes the text extremely hard to read and is very distracting. Throwing in a bolded text or colored line every now and then is fine, but use it sparingly. Color is fine, but drawing the line is necessary.

As said before, I am by no means a Zed expert, but I do have quite a bit of experience writing guides here on MOBAFire. Keeping my points in mind will most likely help you in the long run :)

Yes, I should have definitely added the long sword + 3 health pots start, HOWEVER (Personal opinios), I go full armor runes meaning if I have an item that adds my health, the defensive capability rises exponentially. If you do not understand that health and armor rises together very well, watch Phreak's guide on the new runes. I really appreciated your suggestion and I will be sure to add it in. :)

@ Emikadon, you're right about the boots, but not about the Long Sword. The reason a lot of people start Long Sword 3 pots on a melee in the middle lane is the ranged harass you'll be facing. 450 effective extra health is quite a lot and helps you through the early laning phase.

@ GodlyBanana

This is a good start and you show you have the basic coding knowledge.

A few remarks:
  • If you're going to add matchups in the clean sheet, you should add more than one ( Yasuo)
  • I would personally put summoner spells icons and explanations in one colummn like this, because now it seems too messy:

    MUST TAKE

    .
    Flash is a must for almost any champion in general. For a squishy assasin like Zed this is not any different. Even though Zed has his Living Shadow that allows a escape for Zed, many people tend to escape the wrong way. They might run into another enemy or Living Shadow is on cooldown when they're in a sticky situation. This is when Flash comes in to save them. This is a MUST for Zed.
    .

    Highly Recommended

    .
    Your Second Summoner Spell should be Ignite. This is one of my favorite summoner in the game as it can secure kills, deal more damage and counter healers. This mixes perticularly well with our Death Mark because Ignite lasts 3 seconds, same amount of seconds it takes for Death Mark to exploded (will get to that in the next chapter). It can also be used to kill enemies who are running away, which is very helpful. The only down side to this is that it can be cleansed by Cleanse or Quicksilver Sash. Still, I would almost always take this second.
    .
  • "Becareful!" -> "Be Careful!"
  • Try to add some more pictures but overall good use of icons.
  • Can you put your Item explanation chapter after your Skills chapter?
  • Try to keep paragraphs a maximum of 8 lines.
  • Try to use Microsoft Word to write your guide for the spelling checker, or let someone experienced in the English language help you check for errors.

If you work a little more on your guide I will definitely upvote it.

Best of luck,

Foxy

Great guide. I'm really hoping for the match up guide to update because no one put zed vs champion matchups on ANY guide yet.

About the summoner spells section, I would have to disagree with you about all champions needing Flash. There are plenty of champions that have their own means of escape and would much rather get a different spell to give them some more options in-game. Otherwise this is a pretty good guide. Well done, please work on finishing it though. No vote until then I'm afraid. Have fun and good luck.


Also your item section could use a little work. It isn't very appetizing to the eyes. And can you tell my why you chose Doran's Shield over Doran's Blade? Doran's Blade gives a good deal of sustain to Zed along with some extra damage. Doran's Shield seems like a lesser option.
