Summoner Spells Back to Top

You can run Tele for those "OH CRAP" moments but you lose the ability to flash on the other side of your opponents while ulting to knock them back into your team. One of the strongest ganking techniques and one I would never trade for anything else. 


But you do you.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I run 12/0/18 masteries. I don't really recommend changing anything here. Some people run Vampirism instead of the Natural Talent but since all you do is AOE the spell vamp is rather weak.

This is my typical level progression. You can switch W and Q depending on your specific in game needs, however, maxing E 1st is essential because of the reduced CD and the distance gains per level.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

    For heavy ap matchups
    For heavy crit matchups
    Turns W into CC
Some switch the 3 Health Pots for refillable potion. I prefer the straight health pots. Only use 2 during 1st jungle clear and the last is just in case.

I complete these items in this order: 

1401.pngStalker's Blade: Cinderhulk for that little extra aoe damage. It makes running down enemies easier when your E is on CD with the ranged movement steal.

3111.pngor 3047.pngMerc tread or Ninja Tabi. Just depends on what you are seeing but typically Merc treads are the way to go.

3151.png Liandry's torment devastates enemy teams. From tanks to carries they can't handle the damage output. With all but 1 ability having a movement impairment you get the 2x damage most of the time!

3065.pngor 3742.png Spirit Visage or DMP. Well it all depends on the match-up. Should definitely build both but the order varies from game to game. Even if they opponents have a fair amount of AP I'll still get DMP just for the movement speed. You never know when running just a bit faster will get you that kill or let you escape.

The last item slot is the only one that I vary usually. The 5 items just listed are my go to's and honestly I think i use 3116.png Rylai's Crystal Scepter more than the other suggested situational items. Nice chunk of health, nice AP boost, and most importantly it adds that little extra slow to your W and gives Liandry's  that 2x damage effect

VS

Amumu

Hard

The AOE shreds you since you'll have a ton of health and it's hard to get away from the little guy. 

VS

Azir

Hard

The Ult from Azir will prevent you from Slingshotting over while his sand soldiers beat your face in. Not guaranteed to kill you but definitely makes you reconsider your gank path. 

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium

Blitz can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Getting in the way of his grab is awesome for initiating but he can also pull you right out of the air (literally) and ruin your gank or initiate.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

The silence and knockup ruin a good Slingshot engage or escape

VS

Darius

Medium

While hard to kill he's not the biggest threat to Zac. His Apprehend can mess up some slingshots.

VS

Fizz

Easy

His burst isn't enough to kill Zac and his evasion only give Slingshot more time to come off of CD.

VS

Udyr

Medium

Udyr is similar to Xin. Been against both good and bad so I'm not sure where he shakes out.

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

Xin is a hit or miss. I've been able to destroy some while others have my number the whole game. I'm not sure exactly where he falls when it comes to Zac but I've seen both good and bad. It may come down to skill level and experience.

VS

Zed

Easy

Zed can escape easily but once you're on him hes going to be in some pain. 

Overview Back to Top

Hey guys,


Currently I have a 66.6% win rate with Zac and am above all averages.
I've been having a lot of success jungling with Zac over the past month and I thought I'd share my secrets for success.

First, Zac's jungle sustain is second to none. It is not unheard of to finish 1st jungle clear and have multiple kills or assists and have over 50% health.

2nd Zac doesn't see a whole lot of play time so many players don't know what they are dealing with, where to ward ect.

3rd Zac has an OP laugh

4th All but 1 ability has movement impairment. That means people can't get away.
