Build the Best Zed Items and Runes in League of Legends: Wild Rift

Build guide League of Legends: Wild Rift this will help you build build items, runes, until spell best for Zed. Zed is one of the champions Assassin which is very scary starting from the early to the late game.

Usually, Zed played in Mid Lane because it has high burst attack damage so it can clear minions quickly and is very strong for 1vs1 battles.

One of the reasons why Zed so feared is because the enemy can be finished with just one combo. Especially for champions who are vulnerable to physical damage like Marksman, Mage, and Support.

But, Zed quite difficult to use especially when the combos that run are not all on target. Zed himself is a champion with S-Tier status.


Check out the champion build guide Wild Rift for Zed below this.

Build Items VS Assassin

This build is similar to the Main Build above and is very effective against AD Assassin because the attack damage it has is very maximum. Especially when doing combos.

Noteworthy, to fight against AP-focused champions like Mage is make sure you have Maw of Malmortius who will give magic resistance and a shield that absorbs magic damage.

5. Counter

Good Against

Zed very strong against champions like Yasuo, Twisted Fate, Ziggs in Mid Lane. Though Yasuo has the ability to clear minion quickly and shield, Zed can use Razor Shuriken to destroy the shield. Then, finish it off with a combo when Ultimate Active skills.

Oppose Twisted Fate in the beginning it might also be difficult because of the attack distance Twisted Fate which is further away. But mobility which is owned Zed far superior.

Ziggs has a skill that can throw a lot of bombs from a distance. Zed just waiting for the moment when Ziggs approach him and can immediately be finished with several attacks.

Weak Against

Fizz is one of the best counter champions against Zed because his skill can thwart Ultimate Skills Zed. What’s more Fizz can also give CC to Zed.

Ahri can also be used against Zed, CC combo from Ahri starting from Charm and Ultimate Skills will make Zed can’t move and health hers is rapidly diminishing.

Orianna can also be a nightmare for Zed because the ball’s attack range is quite far. 1vs1 duel in the early game is still possible but in the late game it will be very difficult to fight Orianna because he will always be behind the team as support.

6. Advantages and Disadvantages

Play in Mid Lane, make it easy Zed to do farming using only skills Passive. Zed also has mobility high so that it can move towards Dragon Lane and Baron Lane quickly. The shadow that it emits can be used as a distraction such as running away from the enemy. The combo is very scary because it can finish off the enemy in one hit.

Weaknesses Zed depending on the player. If you have difficulty using the above combo then attack Zed be not optimal. Moreover, Zed very susceptible to CC.

7. Tips

Before playing Zed, we suggest to practice first at Practice Mode to learn the skills and combo sequences previously described above due to the level of usage Zed quite difficult. Make sure you read in detail the build guide Wild Rift Zed this.

Moment early games in Mid Lane, collect Gold and EXP as much as possible and can use skills Passive. Don’t get killed so you don’t lose the champion leveling. Always give combo attacks to enemies who have health half, not to the enemy who has health a little.

Collect items for standard builds where you have to collect items starting from Youmuu’s Ghostblade, Gluttonous Greaves, and Duskblade of Draktharr.

When entering mid game, rotate towards Dragon Lane and Baron Lane while placing Ward to open maps. Then, kill the enemy together with other fellow champions by doing ganking.
