Additional Zed Build Insights

League of Legends Zed players may find him to be a complex champ to build out properly. You'll find that his build changes when he is playing against either generic or highly focused team comps, showing you shouldn't select the same Zed build every single game of League of Legends

The most critical items to use in your champion's build include: Eclipse, Guardian Angel, and Youmuu's Ghostblade. Those who added these pieces in their setups had a much better winrate than those who used other Zed builds. Likewise, if you are fighting a varied enemy team composition, you should strongly consider getting yourself the Inspiration, and Domination runes. In recent games, he won the greatest fraction of his games when equipped with these runes.

We established our Zed build guidance by examining 97,908 recently ranked League of Legends matches with him selected. We only recommend the best winrate Zed builds that have been built by ranked gamers enough times for us to suggest them. With so many games in our dataset, we are confident in our suggested builds.
