Summoner Spells Back to Top

There are 2 ways of playing zed. 

Flash + Ignite and Flash + Cleanse
4.png  +  14.png
Flash and ignite are one of the most used zed summoners. The ignite gives you way more kill potential in early game while it needs a more aggressive play style against your enemy.
4.png  +  1.png
Flash and cleanse are the best zed summoners if the enemy team has enough CC to lock you down in teamfights or even when you are roaming or getting ganked. 

I recomand going 4.png + 1.png on zed if you are having a hard lane, for example 127.png .

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Sorcery: More damage -> More kills :v

Double edged sword: I've chosen this one because zed is an assassin and his job in teamfights is to kill the enemy adc and giving him more damage.
Vampirism: I personally think that this is way better on zed not only in early game but in late game aswell because of the 2% lifesteal. If you want you can chose  Natural talent over vampirism if you want.
Oppressor: I've chosen this one because it deals more damage when you land a perfect W+E+Q combo on the enemy laner. You can go bounty hunter aswell.
Wanderer : Personal choice. You can change it for savegery if you want to.
Assassin: Zed does not need more health/mana so you won't need the Secret stash nor longer buffs soo that means that the assassin one is the best.
Merciless: Zed does not need mana... ffs... it's a easy choise
Dangerous Game: The bonus health from this may save your life, like it did with mine.
Precision: More arp -> more damage and zed does not need more than 40% cdr, even if some of you think that 35 cdr is the best for zed i usually go 40% because i will be able to use my W more often to escape from enemy champions but 45% never.. it's totally useless.
Thunderlord's Decree : Probably the best keystone for zed and all the assassins but there is also Stormraider's Surge.. even if i dont really like it since i am most of the times going mercurial and that is enough for the move speed and it reduces the burst in the laning phase  but ofcourse, it is a good alteration but not as effective.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Youmuu before black cleaver... lolking is messing up with the orders..

Situational Items

    Need MR? Buy one of these or even 2
    Need Lifesteal? Buy one or two or even more of these
    Want to snowball?
    You want to be more tanky? Pick ONLY ONE of these.
    Splitpush build example The order is Youmuu -> Bork -> Black cleaver. Lolking is just messing up with the orders.
    Snowball build example Youmuu > Duskblade > Black cleaver .

Hydra: I build it just for the AA reset active

Mercurial: Only when the enemy team has a bunch of CC in their kit
Bork: Only when you want to split push
Maw: Only if the enemy team has a bunch of ap champs.
LW: If the enemy team has a lot of tanks. (Chose your lw upgrade depending on your enemy team.)
Duskblade: Very good item in case you want to snowball.
Death's dance: Really strong passive and high AD
Edge of night: I don't really like it but it is effective for planned assassinations.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GA: Bad teamfights
Sterak's Gage: A lot of DPS in the enemy team
Banshee's veil: For feed mages in enemy team
Death's man plate: When you have feed assassins you the enemy team
Titanic Hydra: To be a bit more tanky and don't die that easy in teamfights
Randuin: Fed ADC and strong peeling. 

About the Randuin for Yasuo match-up.. it isn't really that effective since he has enough penetration from his ult, tldr, it doesnt make that big of a difference.

Edit: Azir got nerfed really hard. The matchup is now a easy one.

VS

Brand

Easy

Create a fake engage and when he will stun you it is gonna be the perfect time to zedR.png and kill him

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

She will probablly build a lot of health and mana so it will he harder to kill her.
Try to do a fake engage and then wait for her stun to worn off then zedR.png and kill her

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

He's too tank. After he gets his rod of ages you will be unable to kill him. Try to roam a lot.

VS

Corki

Easy

Use your zedW.png to gap close after he uses his carpetbomb.png

VS

Diana

Medium

She has a lot of disengage potential. Try to use your zedW.png as a gap close for her dianaR.png

VS

Ekko

Medium

Poke him till he will be low, make a fake engage so he will ekkoR.png and the you will be able to kill him very easy

VS

Fizz

Medium

Make him use his fizzjump.png and then you're ready to kill him

VS

Karma

Medium

A shit ton of poke with her karmaheavenlywave.png and karmachakra.png. Wait her to use her karmaspiritbond.png and then you're ready to kill her with your zedR.png

VS

Kassadin

Medium
riftwalk.png is very annoying, try to make him use a once of twice then zedR.png and use your zedW.png to gap close

VS

Katarina

Easy

Use your zedW.png to gap close or to escape from her deathlotus.png

VS

Kayle

Hard

Make a fake engage till she uses her ult and then feel free and ready to zedR.png

VS

His stun is annoying as fuck... try to buy qss before engaging on him, if you do want to engage without qss or cleanse, try to make him waste hiskennenshurikenstorm.png on a fake engage.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

She's got some damage at early levels so try to play safe until 6. Try to bait her leblancslide.png and gap close with your zedW.png

VS

Lissandra

Hard

Wait till she engages on you with her lissandraR.png and lissandraW.png and then you must outplay her. It's a skilled matchup. Be carefull.

VS

Lulu

Hard

You can't kill her alone. Ask for a gank and wait her to use the luluw.png and then feel free to zedR.png and kill her

VS

Malzahar

Hard

His voidlings are a good way of clearing the wave so he will most likely constantly push you in the tower and you dont have what to do. If you want to roam you must make sure he doesnt follow you. His ult is a really good counter to yours since it is a point and click ultimate and it makes you unable to use any abilites.

VS

Nidalee

Easy

Use your zedW.png to gap close her pounce/let one of her spears land you and then when she uses her pounce on you you are ready to kill her.

VS

Taliyah

Easy

Quite an easy lane. Try to avoid her taliyahE.png taliyahW.png(E W) combo, the rest shouldn't that big of a deal.

VS

Talon

Medium

This is pretty straight forward. Buy a pink, save a life. Wait for him to use his ult on you or buy a pink before engaging

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Use your zedR.png to dodge his gold card and then kill him.

VS

Varus

Easy

Avoid poke. Fake engage, wait for his ult, engage.

VS

Veigar

Easy

Try to avoid his veigareventhorizon.png and veigardarkmatter.png, they do a lot of damage and try to use your W before you ult with like half a second diffrence and then after you ult swap with your shadow if you need too.

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy

Avoid poke. All-in at lvl 6

VS

Viktor

Easy

Avoid poke. All-in at lvl 6

VS

Vladimir

Medium

Make him use his W and then feel free to zedR.png him.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Avoid poke. All-in at lvl 6

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Play around his yasuoE.png and yasuoQ.png. All in when there are no near minions.

VS

Zed

Hard

It's a skilled match-up. Whoever lands his zedW.pngzedE.pngzedQ.png combo better wins the trade. Never ult first, only if you know you can kill him. If you ulted first try to use your E to make him zedR.png you and wait till he appears and then zedQ.png + AA + 14.png him.

VS

Ziggs

Easy

Avoid poke. All-in at lvl 6

VS

Zilean

Easy

Play around his chronoshift.png. Once he used his ult feel free to zedR.png and kill him
