League Of Legends – Faker Zed Guide
This is Faker Zed guide based on pretty much one he used on All-Stars Paris 2014, while there is few actual changes to his one, it pretty much remains the same and should be as effective. While Zed isn’t most picked midlaner or toplaner at the moment that doesn’t make him necessarily bad. He strives in lategame, but struggles in early game unless he starts snowballing really early.
Masteries for Zed
In Fakers Original page (21-0-9) he has 9 points in utillity but i feel that is just nature of competitive play where buffs have more value. But this guide is aimed for more Soloque type of gameplay so thats why this is the setup i used. I suggest adjusting your page to your own gameplay more.
Faker Zed Runes
The Faker Zed Rune Page has almost same runes as this one expect he used flat armor on 2013, but due to recent changes that doesn’t hold. Also Lifesteal is my own personal preference and i like playing with that, but you can change those to attack damage quints or armor penetration whatever you want to pick.
- 9x attack damage Marks
- 9x Armor Seal Flats / Per Level
- 9x Magic Resistance Glyphs / Per Level
- 3x Attack Damage / Lifesteal / Armor Penetration
Also one theory-craft idea i had was to pick attack per level which would make your (W) scale bit harder to lategame. Also you don’t need the attack damage so much early on due its pretty easy to last hit anyways with passive.
Items For Zed
The recently surfaced item in competitive scene and soloQ is Youmuu’s Ghostblade, before it didn’t have so much armor penetration now it has 20 armor pen while black cleaver has only 10. Also the active is really strong what makes it even better for death mark, also critical strikes are pretty underrated on Zed.
You can also start with Doran’s Blade or Doran’s Shield (In really hard lane like Kayle). About the extremely situational items, i feel that trinity and hydra are great for splitpush. Gunblade is also not that bad, because the spellvamp from your spells is actually really good. You can take zephyr and replace boots in lategame if you feel like it.
