Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png FLASH

1. Your standard escape when your W is down.
2. When it is in cooldown, make sure you are playing safe and not overextending, cause this will cause a gank from the enemy jungler and will most likely lead to your death.
3. Very good has an engage tool for quick assassinations.
1. This allows you to roam around the map easier and secure kills for your team.

14.png IGNITE

1. Very good for finishing off enemies. You will see yourself a lot of times bursting down an enemy to a sliver of health. Well, this seals it.
2. Also very good tool against healing champions like 8.png50.png76.png etc.

12.png TELEPORT

1. This allows you to roam around the map easier and secure kills for your team. Also take it if you think you can't beat your opponent laner in a 1v1, cause it will help you roaming.

Skill Order:  zedR.png »» zedQ.png »» zedE.png »» zedW.png


Passive: Contempt for the Weak zedpassive.png

Whenever Zed auto attacks an enemy below 50% Health, he deals an additional 6 / 8 / 10% of their maximum Health as magic damage. The amount is increased at level 7 and at level 17. This effect cannot occur on the same target more than once every 10 seconds.


Q: Razor Shuriken

Range: 700

Cost: 75 / 70 / 65 / 60 / 55

Cooldown: 6

Active: Zed and his shadows throw their shurikens, each dealing 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 / 210 (+0.9 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to the first enemy they pass through and 45 / 69 / 93 / 117 / 141 (+0.6 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to enemies thereafter.

Living Shadow: Additional shurikens striking the same enemy deal 75% damage and restore energy.

1.This is your main damage/wave clearing tool.
2. Use it to last-hit minions in lane and ti burst your opponent down it your combo has it deals insane amounts of damage.


W: Living Shadow

Range: 700

Cost: 40 / 35 / 30 / 25 / 20

Cooldown: 22 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14

Passive: Zed's bonus attack damage is increased by 4 / 8 / 12 / 16 / 20%.

Active: Zed's shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for 4 seconds. Reactivating this ability will cause Zed to switch positions with this shadow.

Zed's shadow will mimic his basic abilities. If both strike the same target Zed regains 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40. Energy can only be restored once per mimicked ability.

1. This has a lot of uses:
- Escaping a gank/in-lane agression
- Dodging a skillshot
- Bigger burst damage with your combo against an enemy
- Easier wave clear
2. You can do a lot of outplays with Zed, being it's main reason your W/R. You can simply go ham on your targets if you are really fed and just finish them. (Be aware that you are relatively squishy so don't go SUPER ham on your enemies, specially those with hard CC like 127.png25.png etc.


E: Shadow Slash

Cost: 50

Cooldown: 

Active: Zed and his shadows create a burst of shadow, dealing 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+80% bonus AD) physical damage to nearby enemies.

Zed's slash reduces the cooldown of Living Shadow by 1 second for each enemy struck. His shadows' slashes slow enemies by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 1.5 seconds.

Living Shadow: Overlapping Shadow Slashes striking the same enemy deal no additional damage but will incur an increased slow of 30 / 37.5 / 45 / 52.5 / 60% and restore energy.

1. Good damage tool when with a combo has it deals a great amount of damage, besides not that much compared to Razor Shuriken (Q).
2. When running away from enemies, use your Living Shadow (W) and immediately after, use Shadow Slash (E), has the your shadow's E slows the enemies.


R: Death Mark

Cooldown: 120 / 100 / 80

Active: Zed becomes untargetable and dashes to target enemy champion. Upon arrival, he marks the target for death and spawns a living shadow at his starting position. This shadow lasts 6 seconds and mimics Zed's abilities. After 0.5 seconds Zed can reactivate Death Mark, causing him to switch positions with this shadow.

After 3 seconds, the mark will detonate, dealing physical damage equal to 100% of Zed's attack damage plus 25 / 35 / 45% of damage dealt of all magic and physical damage dealt to the target by Zed and his shadows while the mark was active.

1. Notice that 3157.png and abilities like kayleR.pngfiorariposte.pngfizzjump.png etc, when well timed can deny your Mark's explosion damage.
2. This ability is godlike. It suits really well on Zed's kit and, has so, it has a numerous amount of plays you can do with it. I will leave you a video down below where you can check 4 different Zed advanced tricks/outplays.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard starting items.
    Start with a refillable potion against easy matchups.

Core Items

    Great 1st back item, that will give you huge damage burst in early game and Armor Pen.
    Finish your youmuu's and then go for your maw of malmortius, has most of the times the enemy team will have an ap champ. This will allow you to go into a fight that you could eventually lose. This 2 early items make zed, compared to all other champs in the game one of the strongest 1v1ers.
    Go for hexdrinker on the 1st back if your opponent has a huge burst of damage, for example someone like a Leblanc or a fizz. If they don't have that huge burst and it's someone like a Cassiopeia or Ryze, go for it after finishing youmuu's. If they don't have AP's (which will be rare) still go for it after finishing Youmuu's + Boots.
    Great item vs. tanks, because it's passive gives you percentage armor penetration. Also, when combined with youmuus' active, gives you insane movement speed and catch/runaway potential.
    Amazing 5th item, has it gives insane amount of damage, movement speed and armor pen. And it's passive synergizes with your ultimate really well has it is a mini-version of it.
    BOOTS: I only pick up these as i like to move around the map very quickly. if you want to go for me, pick these up.
    This is Zed's best last item. Why? Hell of a lotta penetration. Yes. I said that. But it's the truth. This combined with all of your other items can reach 80 armor penetration, which has a huge impact when killing anyone, from carries to tanks.

Situational Items

    Pick this up instead of the Duskblade if they have a lot of CC or someone like a Malzahar that has a supress.
    This item is very good if they have damage burst. If you are buying it, replace it for the black cleaver.
Suggested Build vs. AD/Low AP:
