*Note at level 2 grab a point in E if you want to do a level 2 gank early if you see the opportunity*

**Also note to grab E at level 3 if you want to do a level 3 gank instead of just farming, but for me I just love getting level 4 before ganking**

Maxing W for faster clearing and damage in ganks. Max E second for the damage and the Range increase which makes Zac broken as hell. Max Q last because it's Zac's weakest skill.

(Put points into E b4 level 9 is situational. For example, if you just hit level 7, and want to gank, consider leveling up your E for a better gank.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    STANDARD
    1st back
    Cinderhulk really good so yeah standarad

Core Items

    You will always get this item as a 2nd or 3rd buy. Gives you 20% cdr combined with the 14% from your wraith and masteries. Zac doesn't need and shouldn't get blue, so...
    Best boots ingame
    Get this before or after your spirit visage, so it should be your 3rd/4th buy. Helps with diving, and the health works well with Zac. Really good for positioning.
    Combined with spirit visage and all the health regain you have, you will have a ton of health regain to take a ton of poke from your enemies, so if you initiate and want to back out, you can easily regain all your health. Also Zac get's bigger :3.
    Get this if heavy ap on the enemy team and your support isn't building it.
    Final Build (frozen heart instead of thornmail)
    Sell ninja tabi 6th item when you get 3rd dragon only. Can buy mercs if needed.

Situational Items

    NEVER BUY THIS ITEM. Why do you need this item when you have your Q, ult, and randuins for slow?
    Get this item againts a fed AP and if you have a AP on your team as well that will benefit from the passive. Even a support such as sona can benefit greatly from this item, due to the amount of high magic damage she can deal in a fight.
    Get this item if they have a all AD team (ad caster middle ect.). Late game they won't be able to kill you.
    Get this item if they have a auto attack champion such as kog or cait that is the only one doing damage or anything on the enemy team. This item will make them cry. (Try to replace your spirit wraith with this item)
    Get this item if they have a lot of slows (rumble, graves, varus, ect.)
    Although it might look good, this item is actually awful on Zac. Only a fun buy if you know your going to win the game. It doesn't do as much damage as a sunfire, and it just seems like a waste of gold that could of been spent on more tank items.
    Probably a really good item on Zac. Didn't do enough tests yet with it.

Machete 2 pots.

When I go back, buy chilling smite  along with boots.

Get the mini sunfire effect asap to clear faster.

This is where you choose between deadman's or a spirit visage. I actually give my blue buff away as long as my middle didn't die within the 1st 7 minutes of the game (that shouldn't be hard... right....?) but if my AP sucks I take the blue and enjoy the extra CDR.

I get ninja tabi or merc treads depending on the team, although I see myself buying ninja tabi 90% of the time. This is because it is 200 gold cheaper, provides cheap early movement speed, and the armor and 10% reduction from all champs and creeps makes his healing more effective. It's even better if they have a AD caster middle and a champion like Vayne or Kog.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Watch out Mundo, Zac goes where HE pleases ~

RIP MUNDO TRASH TIER CHAMP COMPARED TO ZAC

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

He rapes fiddle so hard at level 6. His ult reduces his crowd control from his fear so it doesn't effect him that much at all.

GET DUNKED

VS

Hecarim

Easy

% health damage too strong. He tends to lack magic resist until late mid game and late game. You will crush him.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

THIS CHAMPION IS SO NOOB FRIENDLY THAT YOU CAN BE 3 LEVELS BEHIND AND 5K GOLD BEHIND AND STILL BEAT ANYONE IN A DUEL.

WHY DOES RIOT THINK THIS IS BALANCED AND OK?

VS

Vi

Easy

RIP RIOT NERFED YOU TOO HARD

VS

Volibear

Easy

He stacks health, and usually rushes a locket or sunfire. Unless he rushes a spirit visage, you rape him really hard due to the fact he stacks health.

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Pros

  1. Benefits from health, which is strong in the current meta. Also he is very diverse with his items due to being similar to elise with his % health damage.
  2. Does Tons of AoE damage in team fights. You will do 15-25% of all damage in team fights even though you're building tanky as hell.
  3. His E is very abusive throughout the game. Mid-late game it's on a 8 second cool down and you can just counter jungle and roam all around the map or just farm to your hearts content.
  4. Has a lot of crowd control (mostly slows) with his ult, which makes him hard to escape.
  5. His laugh is so overpowered, and you can also laugh while your passive is triggered. You will make your opponents rage when they die after diving you and you get a kill, or they are focusing you in a team fight, and you will ace them.
  6. Very strong split pusher. Can put a Heavy single target champion top and make Zac split push and the top roam instead of the jungler roaming and the top lane having to stay top.
  7. His ult reduces all CC by 75%, makes it hard to kite him while he ults.

Cons


  1. This champion is horrible don't play him I'm serious until he get's buffed.

Basic jungle clearing Back to Top

Perhaps will make, just basic stuff that everyone should know.

Tips and Tricks for Zac Back to Top

  1. Make sure to move in between spell casts. Your damage comes from your abilities, not your auto attacks. I have had plenty of times when I started playing Zac that the enemy lived because I wasn't in range for a W, Q, or even a E. It is good though to auto as it adds a bit of extra damage.
  2. Abuse your E range as much as possible. Zac can easily pressure lanes and steal buffs due to this. Also it is a knock back, so if your in melee range of a target, feel free to double tap it to mini stun a enemy or even enemies if they are grouped. 
  3. Even though I don't see me doing this often, nor have I even done it, you can smite steal while E'ing with Zac, as seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGpqKrs0Bx4&feature=youtu.be
  4. Your basic combo for initiating a fight is a charged E, W, Ult and then casting the rest of your abilities. The reason I cast W before ulting, is that your ult will knock everyone back, so you won't damage everyone you mini stunned.
  5. Just like the champion spotlight, use Zac's E to go over walls to gank. This will catch people off guard, as not many champions can do this. (Watch the Zac champion spotlight to get what I mean by that at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr8kHe4vqZQ)
  6. When killing creeps, try to pick up the blobs at the last possible moment, as your abilities do damage based on your CURRENT health, and not your max. This mean if you use abilities when you're lower health, they will cost less, and you will end up with more health between each camp.
  7. Remember that your ult gives a movement speed buff. After the final bounce, He will get a 50% movement speed buff that is quite noticeable. Do keep this in mind when using his ult.
  8. As long as you can pick up the blobs safely, keep spamming your abilities, as long as you are not 100% health, you will always gain more health when using your abilties.
  9. You won't get a blob piece to fall out of you if you don't hit an enemy with your abilities when you cast them. It is a similar mechanic to Rengar's W (battle roar).
  10. Your E channels towards the direction of your mouse, if you a move anywhere, it will cancel it. Try to hold your movement comments while channeling it, as you don't want to cancel it during a critical fight.
  11. Use your E to travel faster. As long as you let go as soon as it hits max distance, you will go faster then just moving. This makes Zac a very mobile champion!
