Summoner Spells Back to Top

   Although 154.png is not your regular mid laner, he has 2 very powerful tools that common mid laners lack: A Full AoE Burst Combo and a VERY strong engage in his kit. You can actually become a MASSIVE threat on the map because ZACs natural ganking prowess is heavily amplified by the exp and gold that comes from being a solo laner. In teamfights, Zac is able to engage from very far away with his E, while also being able to burst full health squishies . After engaging a fight, Zac can try to keep himself alive through the use of his passive zacpassive.png and Zhonyas 3157.png while his team follows up.

 
  4.png is a must have. Its great for making plays and escaping ganks, especially when your only escape zacE.png is sort of unreliable

  14.png Makes your combo much scarier, and puts a lot of kill preassure in the lane. It's my personal favorite, but you can take TP12.png or a defensive spell if you like it better

  AP Zac is especially good in low elo games. He can captalize heavily on a unorganized enemy team by using the amazing range on his E zacE.png coupled with a sweeping trinket 3341.png3364.png to engage easy fights without being seen coming, thus making him a very roam heavy mid laner ( much like katarina actually 55.png) who even though doesn't have an amazing laning phase can easily snowball out of control by ganking ( especially with one of these 3041.png  $ _ $ )
 Also, Zac's E zacE.png enourmous range coupled with the tons of damage you'll be getting from your ap items turns objective fights such as Dragon's and Baron's pit into the perfect spotlight for zac to shine. Landing a well placed E will easily get you triples, quadras and even pentakills. Trust me, the AoE burst damage gets INSANE

Not much to say here,Thunderlords works really well with AP ZACs combo, so make sure to get it. The other 12 points go in ferocity but you can change them around  if want to.


Also, secret stash + dark seal make your potions worth a lot more, so i suggest you get them both in case you're afraid of being poked out of lane

     Put points in your QzacQ.png until you get lv 6 for more reliable wave clear and poke in lane. After the first point in your ultzacR.png , it's time to gank! From there, start maxing out your E zacE.png, then your Q again and lastly, your W zacW.png


   Your passivezacpassive.png should help you a little bit with lane sustain, but don't expect it to replace potions or to save you from dying in lane, cause if you passive pops and there's no teammate around to help you out, you're gonna die for sure

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    First Items vs AD champs
    First items vs AP Champs
    Get These when you're ready to start ganking

Situational Items

    A few options for your last item
    Example of a finished build
    The man-mode build

       Start the lane with a defensive item and pots, then proceed to focus on farming until you get some itens.


       Your first item should be a defensive one, and therefore, match up dependent; against an AD Champion such as Zed ? Rush 3157.png . Against an AP mid like Le Blanc/Ahri? Go for an 3001.png. Since your job is to jump into the enemy team, a defensive AP item usually is the way to go. If you're ahead you can also go for a mejais and tilt your lane opponent out of existence. $$$ 3041.png $$$
      As your second Item I recommend 3285.png, it gives a ton of AP and the passive proc really gives an extra punch when trying to 100 to 0 someone, especially as the game goes on and people get more Tanky.

     Zhonyas 3157.png  and deathcap 3089.png are a must have for late game, as they will give you the survivability and the damage you'll need to become the living nightmare of all the squishies.

      As your last item you got a few choices: Void Staff 3135.png for when the enemy team is full of tanks that have a lot of M.R. or a protobelt  3152.png if you feel like getting some health and being able use the dash to catch up to mobile targets


TL-DR:  Get Zhonyas and tons of AP

About Lane and Match Ups Back to Top

    As I Have said before, ap zac is much like katarina in the sense that they have to "survive" lane phase until the point of the game where they can shine. Besides le blanc and some other lane bullys, you dont have to worry about match ups as long as you make sure to get the right runes, farm up and then start ganking like a mad man

   For champs who work well with ap zac, anybody who can either follow up nicely on his engages   ( malphite, talon, rengar, miss fortune, azir ) or protect him as he goes in ( lulu, kayle, soraka, nami ) make for a great teammate. Also, enemy champs who are good at desengaging ( janna, poppy, etc ) can make your job really hard, so pick your fights well when playing against then.

Thanks for Reading Back to Top

  Thanks for checking out my first guide! AP Zac Mid is a really fun and surprisingly strong pick, so have fun messing around with him.  154.png
