“Take barrier. You need to harass him a lot before he gets level 6. Punish him whenever he's going for a last-hit, and be sure to dodge his double shurikens. After your first hex core, you should get a seekers armguard to counter his lethality items. If you struggle a lot vs Zed you can just buy zhonya's but it will delay your powerspike a bit. ”
“Not fun to play against, go early seekers and then tabis versus this guy and he shouldn't be able to oneshot you if you didn't die early. His shurikens deal reduced damage if it hits something else between a target (e.g. minions). He is not that big of a threat till level 3 so be sure to abuse those early levels. Make sure you dodge W+Q combo.”
“good zed players are 1v9 idk how to stop this champion”
“Use fleet foot + resolve tree and start with doran's shield. Lvl 1-5 you poke him as much as possible with Q if he ever walks up to farm. Bait out his W by intentionally walking in range and then out again. Once it's on cooldown, you can look for short engages with your E and stacked Q. It becomes really rough after level 6 because he can easily dodge all of your damage, and sine yone is somewhat immobile, it's also pretty easy for zed to land all his abilities on you. Play it really passive in lane after 6 and DO NOT use your ultimate if his is up. Play to farm and outscale. Call for jungle help and try to make him waste his ultimate. ”
“Use your w when he ults you to remove his ult, you might lose early if you play wrong”
“MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA)
Doran Ring + 2 Pots + Another Ring on first Recall + 1-2 Cloth Armor if you still cannot deal with him (A.K.A. he's experienced). Cloth Armors shall transition to Zhonya/Tabis later on if you still need it. Get Time Warp Tonic/Stopwatch to survive OR Stopwatch/Minion Demat to push and roam first.
ROAM/PUSH FIRST BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FOLLOW HIM UNLESS YOUR JUNGLER IS NEARBY. GET STOPWATCH RUNE.
In the Zed matchup we want to get Exhaust or Heal/Barrier as a summoner spell and to reach for Zhonya for first or second item. If you think you can survive the matchup you can go for a mana item early on, but I recommend Zhonya as soon as possible. His lanephase before level 6 is relatively close to yours, as in poke, go back and wait for cooldowns and poke again. You should keep a safe distance from his W and try to trade with him and dodge as many Q's as possible. Post 6 you can either play it safe, push and roam, or try to fight him but I do not recommend the second one. If you do get caught try always to flash to towers in the moment his ultimate lands, right before he uses Q to get amplified damage. Use Exhaust in the moment in which his ults lands on you, and zhonya right before he uses Q.
You can notice his Q by his animation, try to get a grasp of that and how it works. Keep Exhaust always in teamfights for him to deny some damage. If you often struggle ask your team to ban him.”
“You can bully him hard levels 1-3. From level 4 his poke combo is strong, so try to bait out his W first and dodge his shurikens. His W will be unavailable for a long time, so that's your chance to take control of the lane again.
Rush seekers armguard early to counter his lethality route, and then proceed into finishing ludens echo. If you struggle a lot, then you can upgrade to zhonya's to make his ultimate useless. ”
“Always make sure you save your E for when he wants to get close to you/ult you. This will be the only way of getting him away from you. Apart from that, poke him pre-6 and take barrier if you're not fond of the match up.”
“Early seekers and stopwatch will do a lot for you, but if he gets 2 kills early he's likely to win the game by himself.”
“Get Seeker's Armguard very quickly and try to kill him together with your jungler after he uses his W to trade. Spamping your sidelanes when he starts to roam.”
