Zed is the master of shadows and an edgy individual. He comes from the Ionian region in search of power. He became triggered after Shen defeated him in a duel and went fully to the dark side, learning the sacred arts of the shadows. Sure, his methods are illegal, but does he care? Absolutely not. He's also a pain to deal with while laning, so buy as much armor as you can before heading off to lane when you recall.

That's just one of many ways to trigger a Zed player. Zed is a powerful champion who excels at eliminating single targets. That is his sole goal. So don't try to fight three people at once because it's almost impossible to do that with him. Lock on to one target, preferably a squishy, and ruin their day. Thankfully, Zed's W “Living Shadow” summons a shadow that mimics his Q “Razor Shuriken” and E “Shadow Slash” when cast.

If you use your R “Death Mark” ability on a target, you can also cast three shadows on the field. When the timer expires, the damage will be dealt. His Q “Razor Shuriken” and E “Shadow Slash” are excellent for pushing lanes or poking a target. A great combo would be to use your W “Living Shadow” and then immediately press E “Shadow Slash” to slow down your opponent before throwing a shuriken aka the Q at their face. There are many Zed players, but one stands out above the rest: ZED99. This dude makes playing Zed look like an art form.

5. Goredrinker Zed

The first build I'll show you is the tank zed with goredrinker. When lethality isn't cutting it during a match, you'll have to go tanky. Don't worry, you'll still deal a ton of damage, but your chances of bursting someone down will be significantly lower, but your life expectancy will be much higher. Also, the items you'll purchase with this build will ensure that you don't run out of HP too quickly.

Don't be afraid to dive headfirst into a team fight or even start one yourself. If you know your team will win, go in first. You can always flee with your W “Living Shadow” if you didn't use it in a fight. Furthermore, if you know what you're doing with your abilities, it will be difficult for the opposing team to hit you. However, even if you quickly run out of HP, you can easily recover it thanks to the massive life steal that this build provides.

Use This Build If:

  • You don’t mind sacrificing a bit of burst for survivability.
  • If your team doesn’t have a strong frontline and needs someone to engage in fights.
  • Don’t be afraid to go into battle first as this build gives you enough life steal to get all your lost HP back quickly.

Analysis Of Abilities Allocation:

This is the standard champion ability allocation, and you can only change a few starting abilities depending on the match-up. The Q “Razor Shuriken” is your main source of damage, while the E “Shadow Slash” is great for slowing down opponents and making it easier to hit them. Depending on the situation, your W “Living Shadow” serves as an engagement or escape tool.

Items (are sorted from the early game to the late game):

Doran’s Shield, Health Potion, Boots, Serrated Dirk, Ironspike Whip, Ionia’s Boots Of Lucidity, Goredrinker, Edge Of Night, Ravenous Hydra, Black Cleaver, and Sterak’s Gage.
