Hey,

I dont know what is better? and if I take TF should I take it late or early?. I tried both. On the one hand I think Frozen Mallet is better because that item makes me nearly inpossible to chase and kill but on the other hand TF could increase my burst with my ultimate r.

Please Help and sorry for my bad english :/.

Greetings DisX

I would personally say, like on Talon, nothing of both. AD is OP, The Bloodthirster is way better than Trinity Force could ever be.

Thank you for your fast answer.
But Zed doesnt have that nice escape ability like talon? so if i jump in i would die instantly or not?

Well, then ask yourself: Do I want Trinity Force if I want to be more tanky, while other items give way more damage than Trinity Force?

So, the only item for this situation would be Frozen Mallet. And I think I would still prefer the combination of other items like the new The Black Cleaver(HP+armor shredd+AD+CDR), Mercurial Scimitar(MR+AD+ Quicksilver Sash), Guardian Angel(Armor+MR+Revive).

In that build, there would be still enough room for AD in form of The Bloodthirster.

Like Nick said, neither of your choices are optimal. FroMal doesn't give enough AD to be worth it and the slow isn't very useful because you should be 100->0 most people. Not chasing.

Trinity isn't optimal because you're losing out on a lot of the procs from it as well as completely ignoring the mana/AP from Sheen.

A stronger route is going Hexdrinker/ Maw of Malmortius for early game damage. Then, try to rush The Bloodthirster as soon as you can. Mercurial Scimitar is a great, new S3 itemization choice and the new form of The Black Cleaver might be a nice choice if you plan on poking before you burst, but it's still not 100% optimal.

Guardian Angel is a nice item overall but, because your spells are on too long of a cooldown to be useful after a revive, you might just want to focus on more damage over survivability.

Because you're usually mid, there's not a lot you need in terms of armor, but a Chain Vest should solve most of your armor issues for a while. You can sell it later if you really feel the need.

When choosing items you should always know where you position in a fight, if you are close you will need some sustain. You don't worth too much if you get instagibbed.

No pure AD is not OP at all. Sacrificing sustain for AD means anyone good enough to trick you just enough to survive your burst will kill you for sure. If not 1v1 being melee without any form of defense means you will easily get killed from just the aoe going around in the fight. Especially if you look at season 3 stuff like Ravenous Hydra, Runaan's Hurricane, Iceborn Gauntlet... You can only allow yourself to be squishy if you are ranged. It's so damn basic in pretty much any game.


Feel free to +rep me if i helped any way!

Hey thank you. So I thought about s3 items and I would go for early The Brutalizer, then rush The Bloodthirster, get an Guardian Angel, Blade of the Ruined King, Maw of Malmortius and Last Whisper, maybe change Maw of Malmortius through Mercurial Scimitar
