Zed Build

Zed will build armor-piercing items. Because when using all skills to stack damage if you can't destroy the enemy champion, the one in danger is Zed. "Youmuu's Ghostblade" is the first item to acquire. Helps Zed have good damage from the beginning of the game in addition to having more attack speed.

The second item will have to be "Black Cleaver" because the second equipment is also in the middle of the game. Now Zed will gank the remaining lanes. Having a bonus health from "Black Cleaver" and bonus movement speed will help Zed reach enemies better.

"Trinity Force" is an item that is being used a lot on the 3rd or 4th build. The main reason is that it provides up to 30% of its attack speed and also its "magic sword" passive. When using the ultimate "Death Mark" the explosion damage is equal to 25% of the total damage previously dealt. Therefore you need to do as much damage as possible before the mark explodes.

Zed position

Zed is a melee assassin with tremendous shock damage. Besides, thanks to the Shadow Clone skill, it creates a Zed shadow that can freely choose the location to appear, which is extremely useful when needing to escape.

Zed takes the position of Mid.

How to play Zed

"Living Shadow" is a skill that helps Zed escape dangerous situations. When you gank, use it properly.

Early game:

It's not easy for Zed at this stage. Farming minions is very difficult and the amount of damage Zed does is not much. You need to play safe and if you can't farm go to other lanes to gank.

Mid game:

Once you have the ultimate, Zed can play more aggressively. Any lane that has a fight, find an approach to help or kill. This is also the strongest phase in Zed's game.

End game:

In teamfights, don't stand on the front lines, just focus on enemy gunners or champions with low health left. Heroes with low health or without many defensive tools are always the ones you have to target first.

Difficult to play requires practice.

Zed counters

Up condensation of early Ionian or angel armor. If "Living Shadow" is on cooldown you can allin Zed now.
