Introduction

Hi, you may know Zed is currently one of the best mid lane in the game right now.
In this guide, i'll show you how I use him and hope you can do good with it .
Remember : This is my personal build , not necessarily the best one. So don't hate.

Runes

I pick Armor Penetration Marks because of the high built in damage that zed has.
I pick Armor Seals because it allows you to itemize more in damage since you already have a bit of Armor.
I pick Scaling Magic Resist Glyphs because most AP mid lanes because most of their power is focused when they hit higher levels which makes it more useful in the late game.
I pick Attack Damage Quintessence because Zed passive on w makes Attack Damage very potent since of the % increase

0 Utility
I take 21 in offense because Zed is an Assassin which means you rely mostly on your mechanics to make it out alive.
I take 4 points in Sorcery instead of Fury because Cooldown Reduction is more useful on Zed than Attack Speed since most of his damage is from his abilities
I take 9 in Defense because Zed is a very squishy champion early on , so the extra health and defense makes him able to win laning phase pretty easily.

Summoner Sets

Flash & Ignite
Regular Flash/Ignite to Secure kills and escape easily

Item Builds

Starting Build(s)
Agressive Start
Sustain Start
Fast kill start
Regular Start
If you are in a easy lane match up consider buying doran's blade because of the damage and sustain.
If you are in a harder lane match up consider buying doran's shield because of the health and health regeneration.
If you are going for fights and kills early on , buy red potion , the increased damage and health will give you and hedge on any opponent.
If you are rushing certain items go for long sword since it can be built in a bilge water cutlass or a brutalizer which are key items for Zed.
Final Build(s)
Standard Final Items
Blade of the Ruined King is a MUST with Zed the increased damage and burst from the active and passive makes it very potent when attempting to 1v1 any champion with high burst.
Last Whisper and Black Clever are a great items for Zed since he has a great base damage on each of his abilities and the Armor penetration makes it very potent on any heavy armored opponent.
Maw of Malmortius is Optional because even though it's good against AP champions if you fight a mostly AD focused team composition its better to go for a Ravenous Hydra or a Bloodthirster.
Guardian Angel is only built when needed , if you are fed and their team starts to hurt a little more in the late game you can get it so you don't get bursted down when trying to Assassinate a high priority target.
I like Ionian boots of lucidity because it gives a good amount of Cooldown Reduction which is great on Zed since he relys mostly on his abilities to do damage.
