Zed Matchups Overview

Zed General information

Zed tips and tricks

Before looking for the all-in, try to get the enemy as low as possible. This will reduce the enemies chances of escaping or surviving once you commit to using your Ultimate Death MarkR.

Keep a constant eye on your resource bar. Zed needs as much energy as possible before committing to the fight. Avoid playing too aggressive when you’re low on energy.

In team fights, focus the squishiest enemy champion or somebody without defensive tools. This will make taking someone down much easier.
