Summoner Spells Back to Top

Atomictincan, a scrub 5 Ziggs main on NA. I can't remember having as much fun with any champ then I have with ole "Jiggz".


Anyways, if it's your first time picking up Ziggs, he's a mid-long range aoe caster who's skillset is based around keeping the enemy in lane and blowing up their tower thanks to his PASSIVE ziggspassive.pngand his W ziggsw.png. With these two tools in your kit, along with the Mid-Long Ranged skill set, you can safely harass your enemy to base, and destroy their tower faster than any other champion.

PROS

Safe Lane
Strong Early
Unique Escape
High Burst
Feared by ANY and ALL Structures
Quirky and hard to predict (Mostly since it's hard for you to predict it yourself)

CONS

...Quirky and hard to predict
No good form of CC
Squishy
Yordle Global Taunt

DIFFICULTY - 6.5/10

DPS - 7/10
Burst - 9/10
Mobility - 5.5/10
Mana Management Difficulty - 6/10
Tankiness - 4/10
Wave Clear - 8/10
Tower Kill - 10/10
First Pick Safety - 7/10



SUMMONER SPELLS

YES

4.png - 100% of every game you play ever... period.

21.png - I find barriers cool down and power all around the game is your second best choice.

12.png - Some people like TP mid, and I won't disagree that it's a good choice. I prefer barrier for it's utility and because ziggsr.png can be cast anywhere right outside Mid.

1.png - If you feel like you've been sentenced to death via CC.

6.png - I've messed around with ghost instead of Teleport for getting back to lane/setting up a ziggsr.png fast. It works surprisingly well.



NO

14.png - If you're close enough to ignite, you're too close. Your burst is huge even when behind, you don't get extra points for overkill.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY - 12

Only switchout I'd make here is TIER 2 - Fresh Blood -> Feast (If you're up against long ranged)

CUNNING - 18

TIER 2 - When you gain more experience in managing your mana, you can go Assassin

TIER 3 - This is a tossup, I like Meditation simply because you can blow through your mana all game if you're not careful.

With that being said Merciless is a great choice as well, I just feel we already do enough damage, and don't need the overkill.

TIER 5 - I've run both Precision and Intelligence in dozens of games, and they are both equally good. PERSONAL PREFERENCE.

Just max Q first, then E, obviously taking R when available.

ziggspassive.png

Ridiculous damage vs Towers and other Structures. Late game you will easily take 3/4 of a towers health with 1 Auto attack.

This is also a scary harass tool that is underestimated by most mid laners, usually because of the cooldown.

The trick in early tower clearing is spamming ziggsq.png and ziggse.png to reset the passive cooldown. 

Combo for towers - AUTO ATTACK -> ziggsq.png + ziggse.png -> AUTO ATTACK


You should use this even if there are no minions/enemies around.

ziggsq.png

Simple to understand, hard to master.

The bounce pattern is determined by the distance you throw it.

Use when ranged go in to last hit minions (They will usually be right next to caster minions so just cast on the minions)

After you pick up 3802.png, you can use ziggse.png + ziggsq.png to clear caster wave.

ziggsw.png

The secret to a good ziggs and a bad one.

NEVER use this skill offensively until you are confortable with it's mechanics and your matchups.

NEVER use this on minions/monsters

This skill has a scary tradeout in its ability to destroy towers.
When the icon above the tower is shown, you can use this to instantly melt the remaining tower HP.
As long as the blast is within range of the tower you will get the kill points.

Though your passive can more than easily take towers, using this can give your team and instant chance to engage, and how you use it around the tower will affect that.

Using it while putting it within range of the tower, and an enemy on the opposite side of the circle will give you a simultaneous objective/disengage. 

Have fun messing around with this skill in bots before you try to do some crazy stuff.

ziggse.png

Try to use this on top of the caster minions as the enemy goes to lasthit, along with ziggsq.png you can instantly clear the wave and also put down some huge burst damage if you land both along with a ziggspassive.png auto attack.

Otherwise it's function is pretty explanatory. Using this to push/farm is safe as long as you have ziggsw.png up.

ziggsr.png
Huge damage, with even more so in the center of the blast.

Don't be afraid to use this to clear a wave from base, or try to get an assist in another lane. The cool down is forgiving.

If anyone thinks they can fuck you up, just show them how wrong they are. Using ziggsr.png after you slow them down with ziggse.png seems to be the most effective way to secure a center hit (The center distance is the same as your ziggse.png Diameter).

100-0 COMBO - ziggse.png > ziggsr.png >ziggspassive.png/ziggsq.png


Lategame you can 100-0 ADC's if you get them directly in the center, so aiming for them in team fights is paramount.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    First Back (Wave clear combo available)
    Q wave clear available.
    Sorc feels better against squishy teams.
    Ludens solves some movement issues.

Situational Items

    Assasins/Tower Push
    Tanks?
    AD Mid lane (Get this core FIRST) Turn into Zhonya AFTER Morello

Haven't messed around with too many new items. Feel free to try them, ziggs carry relies mostly on your ability to put damage down on the right targets, and less on your item builds.


Getting 40% CDR is necessary to do this, the sooner you get it the better.

Azir

Hard

Don't be afraid to punish him with ziggsq.png when he Dashes his minions. He needs to AA for them to attack so that's you're time to toss.

Wait for him to us azirE.png before you 100-0 combo.

VS

Brand

Hard

Focus on dodging and drag him to his caster minions so you can land ziggsq.png a lot easier.

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

Easy to disengage her with ziggsw.png

VS

Katarina

Hard

Having a lot of issues with this matchup with her movement.


Just safe farm, and keep ziggsw.png ready to go at any millisecond.

She will likely try to roam, and ziggs can punish any roamer harder than anyone else. So use this to your advantage.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Almost as hard as 55.png, and a similar playstyle.


The difficulty only comes from her kill potential, just push her lane and she will lose. Don't aim for kills and save your ziggsr.png for easier targets.

VS

Lux

Easy

Another mid-long ranger like Ziggs, she doesn't have your ability to go over minion waves and can't win all in's vs you if you have barrier up.

VS

Malzahar

Easy

Morgana

Disengage his zedR.png, then go in for the kill.
