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

Katawina52 says “Zed will almost always try Q you and minions at the same time so always keep your guard up to dodge his Q. When Zed W's in just E him so he cant E-Q as easly also fighting him while his energy is low is really good to know. Pre 6 you should be able to beat him hard. After level 6 the lane gets way harder, because if he all ins you and hits his Qs you're almost dead already so play pre 6 agressive and post 6 safe. Resolve 2nd vs Zed is pretty good for Boneplating for his all in and so is Seekers rush. ”

WayOfTheTempesst says “I actually don't think this matchup is as Yasuo favored as people claim it to be. Poke him and nonstop trade with him levels 1-2 because zed is a very weak champion until level 3. Save your windwall until he throws out his W so you can dodge at least one of his shurikens or else you will take a lot of damage. Abuse Zed when his W is done due to the massive 22 sec cd it has early game, he does very little damage without his W up. This is the only matchup in the game that I actually go exhaust against. After Zed ults you, wait .5 sec and dash away then exhaust so it ends up blocking the initial damage he throws at you and the pop of the ulti, this will negate so much damage and basically render his ult useless. Also if you have 3rd Q and and he ults you just Q behind you so you can 100% knock him up and ult him to delay his ult, although a good Zed will never ult you when your 3rd Q is up unless you fake him out by Eing on him while your 3rd Q is up but not using it and then saving it for when he ults to try to dodge the EQ. ”

7daysko says “This highly depends on Zed's skill, but it shouldn't be too hard to fight him. If he uses R, you could stun him as he emerges from it and deny him all the extra damage. Rushing Stopwatch and then building Zhonya's Hourglass is also VERY effective against him as Stasis renders his R useless.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Mainly a skill match up, save at least 1 distortion for the level 6 just so you can get away from him if he ults you. Go hard on him early game too.”

Yeager says “Rush boots early so you can dodge his W+E+Q combo. If you get his by this, it will take half your hp with Electrocute. Rush zhonyas in this matchup. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “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.”

crabbix says “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.”
Polarshift says “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.”

Halfhand says “Buy seekers armguard first base, then go plated steelcaps, after that finish zhonya. Activate zhonya when he has his R on you. You can poke him early levels. But make sure you manage your waves properly. ”

iZianni says “Rush Zhonyas Dont ever use Q if he has R or W up. You can instantly kill Zed by Qing backwards when he ults you since it'll put him behind you. E/R after that.”
