Tips Against Zed in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

otaliz says “Consider going with Exhaust or Spellbook to swap Teleport to Exhaust for his level 6 all-in. If the enemy team is full of AD, buy Plated Steelcaps at your first base. In the early levels, especially pre-level 3, you can poke him. After level 3 keep the wave on your side, from level 6 try to keep pushing the wave to stop him from roaming, but don't stay in front of him below his tower. Zhonya's Hourglass is an excellent item against him.”
Foxirion says “Zed’s high mobility and burst damage can be a major threat to Swain, as he can dodge Swain’s abilities and quickly eliminate him.”
michaliis says “Go Dorans Blade. Skill Match up. You wont be able to R him he will dash away or R you. So bait his abilities then go all in.”

Laimaudeja says “[I would use the First Strike page in this lane, and start Amplifying Tome.] Zed's shurikens do reduced damage if they hit something first, so standing behind minions is a really great way to reduce poke from him. You should ideally start fights with Zed when his shuriken or shadow double are on cooldown (6 and 20 seconds, respectively) as that's when he's at his weakest. Zed's ultimate also always places him behind you, making it easy-ish to disengage with a Satchel Charge. ”

Yannou-Ari says “Flash - Barrier - Flat HP. Zhonyas 1st or 2nd item depending on how much you need it. I actually think the Zed matchup is even as Lux, because if you play it decently, he can never really kill you unless he pokes you first. If he ever tries to all you when you're full health, land you Q behind you and throw all of your spells because he is 100% getting hit if you have good timing. ”
Fienny says “Even. Don't get harassed by Q, W+Q or W+E+Q. his energy cost is pretty high early. This matchup wins the one who will be fed of kills, EXP or gold lead”

Enderspider says “unplayable lane after lvl 6 and you have no killpressure on him before it. You win out lategame, but getting there is a massive challenge. Not as much of a threat as irelia, however much more popular and I would recommend a ban.”

awawa says “TAKE BARRIER. A good Zed makes you regret your existence. You NEED to stomp him before he gets 6, else he will oneshot you and your team. Get zhonyas, spam ping if he roams.”

ShokLoL says “Zed can be abused levels 1 and 2, try and make him choose between getting a CS with Q or using it on you. Once Zed hits level 3 you can still be aggressive but make sure you don’t get hit by both shurikens from his WEQ combo otherwise you will take a lot of extra damage. After level 6 be careful how far you position up in the lane as he can chase you down and kill you. It can be a good idea to buy a cloth armor in this matchup and just sit on it since it will negate a lot of his lethality. If he ults you at 6, focus on dodging the shurikens as he won't do any damage unless he hits these.”
