Zed Build / Runes
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
Late Game Items
Spell Skill Priority
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
