Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png I don't need to explain why you take this...

14.png Take this vs people that have self heals, ex: Yorick, Swain, Mundo, Volibear. You can also take this into really any matchup if your are comfortable because it offers more kill pressure. 



3.png Is actually quite nice vs duelist champs like fiora/yasuo/riven/jax, ect. put this on them righta s yo uult and use your whole combo they will take increased damage and not be able to do shit about it. Actually super underrated with how powerful it is and even has a short cooldown. Can also help set up ganks with the huge slow. Actually an amazing option.

Masteries Back to Top

Sorcery because it just adds damage in every aspect of your kit and even makes your ult bigger the attack speed isn't needed. 

Feast for sustain because you take poke in almost all mid lane matchups

Vampirism is a shit mastery especially on someone like zed who is constantly q farming and doesnt use lifesteal very much at all during lane phase, and 2% is literally nothing for zed, the extra ad on zed is just better and helps win lane take natural talent always. 

Double edged sword and bounty hunter are both good, but my philosphy is double edge helps you snowball and win games while bounty hunter only helps you after you have already snowballed. 

The rest of the masteries are pretty self explanatory.

Max zedQ.png  because it's your main poke and damage source during all ins. After you get about 3 points in this ablity it starts doing a lot of damage if you are building armor pen. Try to land this on champs before you all in with ult if you land a full w e q combo on your opponent before all inning, you are almost sure to win.


At 6 with zedR.png you have a good amount of kill potential If you can land your q's then you are almost sure to get a kill. I know that putting down your zedW.png to have 3 shurikens sounds nice for the all in but it's really not that important, 2 shurikens is plenty to get the kill and saving your w is better to catch up to their flash or escape a gank, or even just keep your  distance from your opponent as you all in them. It's important to remember that in some matchups while all inning you don't want to be standing right next to them during an all in, champions like corki and ezreal you want to fight them and kill them from a range that they cant fight back. In theory if corki auto range is 550 if you kill him from 570 range their is no risk of you dying to him, so keep this in mind.

Zed's zedW.png is by far is most important ability and it's important to not just always w in during team fights because once you have gone into they fight with your w, unless you have flash then you have no way to get back out. In team fights I would recommend either putting down w to the side or behind whoever you are ulting then popping to it after you ult to confuse your opponent, you could also save it and just straight up ult them then use your w to catch up if they flash or dash away, or use it as an escape.

Your zedE.png is pretty self explanatory, try to use it as a slow.

Your main poke combo is zedW.png zedE.png at the same time then throw zedQ.png's.

Try to use your zedR.png to dodge abilities.

Another tip is when you are fighting and have ulted but need to escape, lead people away from your shadows then pop back to r after you have gained good distance. A great escape is zedR.png then zedW.png away from your ult shadow zedE.png for slow run away for a few seconds then return to your zedR.png shadow and your safe:)

Try and remember that once you use zedW.png you have no escape now. So if you are pushing lane be careful about using it to poke if you don't know where enemy jg is. I would only use this to poke if you know you can't be ganked. I sadly learned this the hard way many times, don't be like me!

Situational Items

My favorite core build is this 3142.png3071.png3153.png3147.png - boots of your choice and the 3rd item can be dusk or botrk depending on what you want to do. defense items like edge of night and maw and scim are all viable buys after ghostblade and black cleaver.
