Whenever Zed auto attacks an enemy below 50% Health, he deals an additional 6 / 8 / 10% of their maximum Health as magic damage (at level 1/7/17). Against monsters, the damage is increased by 100%, but is capped at 200 / 350 / 500 (at level 1/7/17). This effect cannot occur on the same target more than once every 10 seconds.

Zed's shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for 5 seconds. Reactivating this ability will cause Zed to switch positions with this shadow.

Zed's slash reduces the cooldown of Living Shadow by 1 second for each enemy struck. His shadows' slashes slow enemies by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 1.5 seconds.

Living Shadow: Overlapping Shadow Slashes striking the same enemy deal no additional damage but will incur an increased slow of 30 / 37.5 / 45 / 52.5 / 60% and restore energy.

Active: Zed becomes untargetable and dashes to target enemy champion. Upon arrival, he marks the target for death and spawns a living shadow at his starting position. This shadow lasts 6 seconds and mimics Zed's abilities. After 0.5 seconds Zed can reactivate Death Mark, causing him to switch positions with this shadow.

After 3 seconds, the mark will detonate, dealing physical damage equal to 100% of Zed's attack damage plus 25 / 40 / 55% of damage dealt of all magic and physical damage dealt to the target by Zed and his shadows while the mark was active.
