In the LoL classification, Zed is an "Assassin". He deceives his target with his shadows before killing him with a snap of his fingers. He is an AD character, so he only deals physical damage. He is a very fragile character whose goal is to eliminate an opponent before being eliminated. He is mainly played on the Midlane

To play Zed at his full potential, we recommend using runes that give you more damage and lethality. The primordial rune "Electrocute" is ideal mixed with the rune "Taste of Blood". Concerning his build, in order of priority we advise you to buy the Ionian Boots of Lucidity, an Eclipse, the Spectre's Cowl of Youmuu, a Guardian Angel and the revenge of Serylda.

Zed's gameplay is mainly based on his shadows, which duplicate his abilities and give him great mobility. Sona's Q will throw shurikens that hurt all the enemies touched. His E will give enemies around Zed a big hit, allowing them to slow down and reduce the recovery time of his W. Speaking of the W, it allows to throw a shadow on which Zed can Teleport. Moreover, shadows also cast Zed's spells, so when Zed casts a shuriken, the shadow does the same.

Zed's ultimate ability allows him to Teleport on the target, making him untouchable for a few moments and putting a shadow on his starting place. At the same time, he places a mark that triggers a few seconds later and inflicts heavy damage on the enemy. That leaves the time to Zed to fall back by Teleporting on his shadow

Ally Tips

Saving energy and spell cooldowns until you use your ultimate will maximize Death Mark's damage.

Quickly double tapping Living Shadow will teleport Zed Runes to his shadow immediately for rapid escapes.

Placing a Living Shadow before using Death Mark can give Zed Runes a safe escape from combat.

Enemy Tips

Zed Runes receives bonus effect from Attack Damage items he purchases, so Armor is super effective against him.

After Zed Runes uses his Living Shadow, he is at his most vulnerable as his damage, slow, and mobility are both dependent upon it.

Zed Runes's Shadow Slash can only slow you if his shadow hits you with it.

Utterly ruthless and without mercy, Zed Runes is the leader of the Order of Shadow, an organization he created with the intent of militarizing Ionia's magical and martial traditions to drive out Noxian invaders. During the war, desperation led him to unlock the secret shadow form—a malevolent spirit magic as dangerous and corrupting as it is powerful. Zed Runes has mastered all of these forbidden techniques to destroy anything he sees as a threat to his nation, or his new order.
