Summoner Spells Back to Top

Hey everyone, it's your boy Mattheos! I have one-tricked Zoe on the PBE since her release so that I can share my knowledge with others. I am a jungle main on EUW and NA who peaked Masters 150+LP in Season 7 playing Ivern. My ign is Mattheos (EUW), The Ivern God (EUW) and 1nsanemofo (NA). Hope you find this quick guide helpful, I will try to keep it as fresh as possible and improve it at every opportunity.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask or add me in game. I also have a YT Channel: www.youtube.com/mattheos and Twitch Stream: www.twitch.tv/mattheostv. Here, I possibly have content uploaded already which you may find helpful. ALternatively, you can also reach out to me on Twitter @MattheosTV or on my Discord.

New Runes Back to Top

In this video, I discuss the best runes and keystone for Zoe in Season 8.

Arcane Comet synergises amazingly well with Zoe's one-shot combo as it is almost guaranteed to land with her CC. However, while playing Zoe in the Jungle I also highly recommend using Summon Aery as it can bring a much more reliable form of damage in the early game.

Manaflow Band allows Zoe to not suffer from any mana issues during her clear and repeated ganking strategy.

Transcendence gives Zoe a really nice burst of CDR at level 10 and means that all further CD scales into AP damage.

Gathering Storm or Scorch are both viable options, Gathering Storm allows Zoe to scale into a monster disney character and Scorch brings some increase damage to early ganks.

Sudden Impact is able to be triggered from Zoe's Ultimate ability for increase Magic Penetration which means that you can focus on building AP and CDR items in the mid-game and only build Void Staff if the enemy have stacks of Magic Resist late on.

Eyeball Collection is my personal favorite for showing off your skills on Zoe and stacking it feels almost as good as having picked up a Mejai's Soulstealer.

Ghost Poro is also king for acquiring vision during lane phase especially when Zoe is highly gankable!

More Sparkles (Passive) This ability works in the same way as a Sheen and you should therefore try to weave in Auto-Attacks in between every spell cast including the 2 parts of Zoe's Paddle Star (Q) Ability.

Paddle Star (Q) is Zoe's most hard-hitting damage ability, you want to aim this behind you in most cases as this charges up the damage it deals based on distance traveled. You then want to re-send the ability by casting Q again in the direction of enemy players.

Spell Thief (W) allows Zoe to pick up and mimic summoner spells recently use by enemy players, this allows for some fantastic outplays and amazing 1v1 spectacles, it's also a great tool to re-position and survive teamfights and ganks by the enemy jungler.

Sleepy Trouble Bubble (E) this ability makes Zoe as a jungler. It has a MASSIVE range when cast over walls so allows Zoe to make ganks through long range CC missiles from the fog of war. What's more the ability travels extremely fast so that if you are accurate with your spells then it is almost impossible for the enemy to dodge it. Whenever an enemy is hit by your cc follow it up with a Paddle Star (Q) and Portal Jump (R) Combo for MAXIMUM DAMAGE and enjoyable one-shots!

Portal Jump (R) with an extremely short cooldown at max level and cdr this ability is not only fun and liable to tilt the enemy but allows for Zoe to perform her one-shot combos every 3-5 seconds during late-game teamfights. It is also a fantastic tool to gank from nowhere by use it to pop-up in your enemies face over walls and land a point blank CC with your Sleepy Trouble Bubble (E) ability. Do not forget to also use this ability to check brushes as it is much more safe than simply face-checking.

Notes: Rush stalkers blade and then Frost Queen's Claim as first items, then pick up Boots of Speed. At this point, you then want to be completing your Stalker's Blade - Runic Echoes and upgrade Boots to Ionian Boots of Lucidity. After this, you want to pursue standard AP items that you would build for Zoe in the mid lane to one-shot

Zoe Jungle Strategy Back to Top

The key to playing Zoe Jungle is to abuse her extremely high damage kit and the powerful range on her CC E ability over walls.

After you have secured your first buff with your bot lane, look to immediately cheese the enemy bot or mid with a level 2 gank. Then proceed to clear your second buff and either repeat the gank or fully clear your jungle. After your first recall and item purchases you want to spend almost all of your time repeat ganking lanes and farming champions over mosnters, snowballing yourself and lanes hard. Do not worry about the enemy jungler afk farming as you are putting behind his laners massively and will be able to one shot most champions as you scale into the game.

At 15 minutes into the game you want to encourage your team to pick 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 skirmishes in the mid-lane when Zoe is close to completing 2 of her core items including Boots. At this stage Zoe has a huge power spike on many enemy junglers and laners can solo carry team fights with her insane burst damage from her combos. The later the game goes on the less Zoe solo dominates teamfights but she still has the potential to one shot almost anyone on the enemy team if they are not full tank. Try to force objectives such as drake and baron to bait teamfights and close out the game sub 25 minutes.
