The Question:
Imagine this skill sequence when attacking an enemy champion:

W -> R -> Q -> E -> W
Living Shadow -> Death Mark -> Razor Shuriken -> Shadow Slash -> Living Shadow

Button Sequence: W -> W -> R -> Q -> E -> W

Keeping in mind the range of his W ( Living Shadow), do you think that the 4 seconds his Living Shadow exists gives you enough time to pull off his entire ult combo R -> Q -> E ( Death Mark -> Razor Shuriken -> Shadow Slash) and then swap with his shadow?

Notes:
1. His ult may very well cancel his other Living Shadow since his ult "projects a shadow behind them."
2. The distance of his Living Shadow may not feel that great, but if you were to pull off this full combo after placing his Living Shadow over a wall... it would be a very situational, no-lifer, amazingly epic move.
3. If this combo works, I can see tons of people button mashing his ult twice and swapping with the shadow created by Death Mark. Then flaming me for giving them this idea.
4. Pretty sure this doesn't work.

Let me know if you think this skill combo is possible below!
If you have found any other tips &/ tricks, please let me know~

Thank you for reading and responding

Hey, i've responded to your question, in a guide tht u asked about, but I'll post it here as well.
This "Button Sequence: W -> W -> R -> Q -> E -> W" does not work, and you may have mistyped, cause pressing "W" 3 times does not work, as after pressing it the 2nd time it will go on cooldown. but if it was your first sequence "W -> R -> Q -> E -> W" it will work, only if you kill the enemy champion between the 4 seconds, and be in distance for you "W". Also when i did ult and use "W" i saw 2 shadows and not one.

You should consider using E first.

It has a small range that makes it pretty hard to hit an enemy with all 3 Shadow Slashes + you'll slow the enemy to land the Q Shurikens more easily.


And someone knows if hitting enemies with your Ulti's Shadow "Shadow Slash" also reduces W's CD? I guess it does but no time to try it atm.

Don't lead with your W unless you need it to gap close. It's important damage as well as a disengage. REWQ as well as an AA should be your finishing combo if you're going in for a kill.

That's right haha. I forgot that you can only swap once with his Living Shadow.

This is a nice insight because of his passive.

Well guys, it was a nice idea, but the combo doesn't work because of the inablity to swap with Zed's Living Shadow twice.

Honestly, I think this should be changed in the future to give him multiple swaps in those 4 seconds.

At the end of the day, it's fun to think of the expert play involved in placing Living Shadow in a bush or over a wall, then Death Mark -> Razor Shuriken -> Shadow Slash within four seconds and being in range to sap with Zed's Living Shadow.

This would mean paying attention to the range and color of Living Shadow's range indicator.

I'm going to try this when I get the chance!

Color only matters if you haven't swapped. It's red if you can't swap otherwise.

I could have answered more back in my first post, such as his ult not canceling W, but I was on a bit of restricted time.

Also, Dara: Zed's shadows' E will not drop the CD of his W, only his will. You can however triple hit someone with his Q for 175% damage if I infer the tooltip correctly.
