Summoner Spells Back to Top

I mean... Do I really need to explain? These two are a must if you are jungling with Zac.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

You really don't need Thunderlords on Zac. It is pretty hard to proc it with his AA and also his damage is mainly coming from landing his skills. I really prefer having Strength of the Ages to help you with clearing and having full health almost all the time.

Mastery Order and Ability


zacR.png > zacE.png > zacW.png > zacQ.png
    R   >    E    >    W   >    Q

- This will be your mastery order most of the time. You want to master your zacE.png Slingshot (E) first to help you gank more efficiently, initiate, and escape. 

- Zac's passive, zacpassive.png Cell Division creates a blob that restores some of your health every time you hit an enemy or a minion with one of your abilities. Make sure you collect these blobs to stay healthy during team fights and in jungle.

- Your zacW.png W (Unstable Matter) is going to be your second important ability. W does % health damage so it is a great way to put out some damage when you are near your enemies.

zacQ.png Q (Stretching Strike) smacks enemies and does magic damage and slows them for 2 seconds. 

zacR.png R (Let's Bounce!) allows you to bounce 4 times, knocking enemies up and slowing them. It does magic damage to nearby enemies and knocks them up for 1 second. However, you can only knock your enemy once so you have to use this wisely.

 

Combos


EWQ Combo


zacE.png > zacW.png > zacQ.png

It is critical that you hit your E (Slingshot) to stun your enemy before you do anything when you are ganking. If you missed your E, it is gonna be hard for you and your teammate to follow up and put out some damage.

Most of the time, you want to initiate with zacE.png , use zacW.png then immediately use zacQ.png to slow down the enemy. By then, your teammate has enough time to follow up and took out sums and possibly get a kill.



ERWQ Combo


zacE.png > zacR.png > zacW.pngorzacQ.png

This is basically the same as previous combo, but it is used mostly in team fights to disrupt and take enemies out of their position. 


GIF Example of this Combo for Ganking (Click)


As you can see, once I landed my E, I immediately used R to push Ezreal and Leona towards my teammates so they can easily follow up and pick up few kills.

This is what you want to do when you are ganking. You want to push enemies towards your tower or your teammates to trap them.



GIF Example of this Combo in Teamfights (Click)

GIF Example of this Combo in Teamfights : Disengaging (Click)


This combo really shines in team fights. Your job is to protect your team by being a giant moving wall. The example above shows how this was properly done. I landed my E on illaoi and used R to knock her towards my team, then I kept bouncing around their backline (Lulu and Ezreal) so they couldn't put out damage onto my team.

In the second GIF, I used this combo to disengage from Sejuani and Ori Ult. 




GIF example of this combo for saving a tower (Click)


This combo can also be used to save your tower. Click GIF above to see the demonstration.




E-Flash R or E-R Flash Combo

zacE.png > 4.png > zacR.png or zacE.png > zacR.png > 4.png

This combo is for hard initiating. Used E to get close to your enemies, but you are a little too short to push them towards your team? No worries, you can immediately flash or use R then flash to move in further into their front line and disrupt as much as you can. 


GIF Example of this Combo for Initiating (Click)


This was a pretty bad initiation because I used R before Ashe's ult hit enemies, but it shows how far you can get into their front line with this combo.






Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start
    Sometimes I start with Vision if the enemy jungler picks someone like Shaco, Evelyn, Nidalee, Rengar....etc You want to have your vision ward placed early around the entrance of your jungle to prevent getting counterganked

Core Items

    You will take these items almost every time. After finishing your Cinderhulk, if enemy team has more AP, then build Spirit Visage first. If the opposite, build Dead Man's Plate first.
    These items are really great as your last few items. I always take GA because this is op on top of your passive and you will never die. You want to take Randuin if the enemy ADC is strong and has a lot of poke. If you need extra MR, you always want to take Banshee to protect yourself from hard initiation (Amumu, Sej ult... etc)
    Always choose between these two

Situational Items

    These are situational. If your team needs a little more damage or needs to push lanes, you want to take these instead of getting more tank items.
    When the game drags on..

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Nobody plays this dude, but he can be a pain in the ass. He has a passive similar to yours which makes him it hard to kill him. Also, he does a lot of damage and tanky at the same time. However, once you survive early phase and start getting your items, he can't kill you. Also, you are a lot more useful than him in teamfights.

VS

Amumu

Easy

He basically has a same kit as you, but you can easily disrupt him from initiating. You won't be able to kill him alone, but he can't kill you either.

VS

Diana

Medium

She has a pretty good burst, so you want to watch out getting counterganked early. However, once you are lvl 6+ she can't kill you unless she is super fed. When she jumps onto your carries, just stun her with your E and ult to push her away.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Never really see this dude anymore, but he clears pretty fast and gets extremely tanky. However, he lacks damage. Just push him away when he tries to engage onto your team. You can't kill him, but he can't kill you either.

VS

Elise

Medium

She does a lot of damage. Just don't get caught by her stun and you will be fine. She will repel to dodge your E, so wait until she comes down and use your ult to catch her out of position. 

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

Every time he tries to channel his ult, just cancel it with your E or R and make him cry. If he manages to jump on your team with his ult. Use your R to push him away from your team before he uses his Zhonya. Ward every corner of the map so he can't surprise your team. He is very squishy, so catch him out of position with your E and kill him.

VS

Gragas

Hard

A good Gragas will make your life miserable. He does so much damage for being so tanky. He can just bodyslam you when you are trying to jump and also he has ult very similar to yours to put you and your team out of position. Just be very careful before you initiate in teamfights.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Hecarim is a really strong jungler right now, but he needs to pick up a few kills to be really dangerous. Just tell your team to ward well because he can come out of nowhere. However, later in the game, you are far more useful in teamfights than him. Just ult when he initiates onto your team and get him out of position. 

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Jarvan is pretty strong and his ult can be a pain in the ass. You really have to watch out when he is engaging because you want to use your ult before he uses his. You do not want to end up bouncing inside his little hole while your team gets destroyed. This is really a skill match up. You can gank far better than him with your E. 

VS

Jax

Medium

Jax can be a pain in the ass. Once he gets his items, he will always try to split push, so you want to get zz'rot in this match up. However, you are far more useful in teamfights. Just stop him from jumping onto your team with your usual combo.

VS

Kayle

Hard

This girl is a monster. Once she starts getting her items, she will just shred you. When you land E + R on her, she will just ult + slow you and runs away while putting shit ton of damage with her E. GA is a must in this match up. Just try to catch her early and out of position. 

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

He is strong. Make sure you ward around your jungle so he doesn't surprise you. In teamfights, you are better than him. catch him out of position with your E + R and kill him.

VS

Kindred

Hard

A good kindred will be a nightmare. Just don't get caught by her and try to focus on catching her off position. When she ults, use your ult to push her out of the circle. 

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Meh, this dude is alright I guess. He clears fast and will gank a lot more than you earlier, but late game, he is pretty much useless in teamfights. Just stay in front line and laugh.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Unless he is fed, he is fairly easy. He will be afk farming til 6 so just outgank him and help other lanes get ahead. In teamfights, just stop him with your E + R and he can't get to your carries.

VS

Nidalee

Hard

Nidalee is very hard to compete against. A good Nidalee won't let you touch her at all. However, in team fights, you are far more useful than her, so just wait until she makes a mistake or catch her out of position. You cannot dual her tho.

VS

Nocturne

Easy

Nobody plays him anymore. However, just be careful once he is 6 and tell your team to not overextend with no vision. In teamfights, he will have hard time trying to go through you, so catch him out of position and punish him.

VS

Nunu

Easy

LOL similar to Fiddlesticks. Whenever he tries to ult, just use your abilities to cancel. 

VS

Olaf

Medium

Do not dual him. You can't kill him alone. However, in team fights, just wait before or after he uses his ult and just take him out of his position. Your team will do the rest.

VS

Poppy

Hard

Her kit is a nightmare to you. Whenever you try to jump, she will just use her W to block you. Also, her R can really throw you off the teamfights. Be careful!

VS

Rammus

Easy

Similar to you, but he actually has to roll to get to your team while you can jump around. Don't let him get to your carries and you will win the teamfights.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

This is really a skill match up. Your kit is far more useful than hers in teamfights. Just ward around and always get rid of her tunnels.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Skill match up. He is basically nothing if you get ahead, but you really gotta watch out for getting counterjungled or counterganked. Make sure your team buys pink and place it everywhere. When he jump onto your team, just use E to stun and punish him.

VS

Sejuani

Easy

She is a teamfight monster, but your can always disengage her fairly easily. Just tell your team to not bunch up and get 5 man ulted. 

VS

Shaco

Medium

Shaco is one of those pussy champions that want to cheese you out of nowhere. However, he is useless late game. Just don't die to him in your jungle and you will be fine. 

VS

Shyvana

Medium

She is strong, but your kit it far better in teamfights than her.

VS

Trundle

Hard

Really difficult match up. he is tanky and does so much damage. You cannot kill him alone but he can always kill you. Just watch out and catch him off guard in team fights.

VS

Udyr

Medium

Similar to Jax and he will try to split push. Get zz'rot to push your lanes. He is strong but he needs get near to do any damage to your team. In team fights, just stop him from jumping onto your team.

VS

Vi

Medium

Similar to Xin Zhao. You are far more useful in teamfights than her. Just punish her with your usual cc combo and punish her when she tries to engage.

VS

Volibear

Medium

Skill match up. He is similar to you, but does more damage. Just stop him from jumping onto your team and you will be fine.

VS

Warwick

Easy

LOL RIP.

Everytime he ults, you ult and you will see him scratching the air. 

VS

Wukong

Medium

You always want to stun +  knock him before he knocks you and your teammates up first. Skill match up.

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

Nobody plays this dude. Once you get your items, he can't kill you. However, he does very well early, so make sure your lanes ward well.

About Me Back to Top

5.PNG


Hello,

I've been playing League since Season 5, so I'm still pretty new to this game. I started as Bronze 5 and climbed up to Silver 1 last season. In season 6, I was placed in Silver 5, but basically climbed up to Plat 3 playing mostly Zac. I just love this champ and he is so much fun to play. He carried me out of low elo and is still helping me to move up in the world.
