To be honest the Mercuries treads are a bad choice for me - if i can get cool-down boots then I am able to fit in an extra E while my ultimate is up (if I have good reaction times). You have basically listed EVERY item and why you would get a spirit item on zed if not playing jungle totally beats me. A decent effort at BBCoding but in your rune page you have no magic resist - playing mid you have a fairly high chance (particularly in low elo) to be against an AP champion. Final part of my rant is that there is absolutely no gameplay!

  • No boots included in the cheat sheet
  • CD Reduction glyphs are quite bad at the moment
  • No build order or "if these kind of enemies" in the cheat sheet
  • The structure of your guide could be so much better
  • You should learn some coding. bbcode
  • Those big images really mess it up

    I'd recommend archiving this guide and playing in season 4 first, then making a new guide after you've read some guides about making guides.

If I were to play top or to face any AD I would of course also build warmogs early to avoid burst, and rush to whisper earlier as well.

Yeah, I'm talking about how the items scale with Zed as a champion.
- Different combos and playstyle solo and in a setup will be added :)
What is the problem with the cheat sheet? :) Which Item to go first will have some variation..
I'm basing this guide on Zed as a mid-player, and will therefore after my bloodthirster rush to ruined king cause I love that aggressive ultiplay with actives.
Whether you have the need to build Blade of the ruined king stats first, or going that cleaver with 4x different stats that all works well on Zed for sustain is optional.
Since I already base my glyphs on cooldown, - both cleaver and blade of TRK offer me more harass and penetration-speed.
Many prefer to build the last whisper earlier on, which also I perfectly fine.
Different players suite different play-styles and this only indicates what works well for me with zed's mechanics. I on my hand like that active-play and will often do fine with the lifesteal+speed from botrk, as well as sustain-hp from black cleaver.

You do not really talk about Zed but more of the items you use to build Zed. Cheat sheet is still pretty bad.

Tip: When making a guide use the recommended chapters on the side bar, that would be great.

Until then -1

Thanks man :)

for me it's all right just a necklace or something like an iron Soraka there better think again about this.

Better update now ?
Tried to do some more coding..
I would still pick Blade of the Ruined King on Zed. This is like a deathfire-grasp for Melee champs in my opinion.

Zed really benefits more from Armor Penetration etc. than from Crit like Phantom Dancer. Why mention Blade of the Ruined King in conjunction with Jungle items and why even mention them in your guide?

Phantom Dancer? Nope. -1

You max E at level 13 and the cheat sheet is bad overall. Don't every single item you know because there are just a few items which are viable on Zed. Mercury's Treads, Blade of the Ruined King, Last Whisper, The Black Cleaver, Ravenous Hydra and Guardian Angel .. this is a typical build and there are some offense items like The Bloodthirster, Sword of the Divine and Infinity Edge that could be viable with more defense stuff like Maw of Malmortius, Mercurial Scimitar, Banshee's Veil, Randuin's Omen and Frozen Mallet.
Take a look at a coding guide and if you really want to keep up the work on the guide I recommend to wait for the next season.
