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

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting Potion because Intensive Poke and sustain is heavily needed. Biscuits MIGHT work too but I'd rather have Minion Dematerializer. In Long Range Mages Matchups you have to try to understand their Q pattern and where they will cast it. They would generally want to either poke you down to kill you or shove you out of the lane, but the matchup is not really impossible if you get boots and try to get close to them for a nice combo.Ziggs has the most oppressive wave clear with Q/E/R and he will demolish your towers if you roam too much, so create a balance. Allow him to take your tower only if you gank and get THEIR tower first on bot or top. Careful for Ziggs W, he can INSEC you and setup ganks for his jungler. Try to be as non predictable as possible. Get Minion Dematerializer. Post 6 try to either get close on them with your ult and outplay with flash OR roam bot faster than them and get kills. They will follow with their long range abilities but by the time they actually do something meaningful you should have sealead the deal. This matchup is all about roaming and learning how to properly dodge his poke on lane. It is okay if you do not get kills, but it is not ok to get killed especially since he cannot 100-0 you unless he's super fed. ”

Sylvan Lore says “The way this lane plays out really depends on how good the Ziggs is at landing his abilities. He can outrange you and outdamage your E shield so you need to dodge skill and stay away from the splash damage he will be doing while he pushes the minion wave. Late game you will need a banshee veil to survive just a few spell from him, but he is an easy target if you can get close to him. One R->Q->W should be enough to 1 shot him on only 4-5 items. Most of my losses to Ziggs are from my team trying to rush objectives and him just Ulting them away from us. If you are confident in dodging, i would say trade with him in lane, but be cautious. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build”

sweodigaming says “Very high damage, a good Ziggs can easily kill you with one combo. He is super squishy however, take that weakness to your advantage. His whole kit surrounds long range abilities, so he has an advantage in range.”

FalleN3 says “Ziggs has a lot of range and considerable wave-clear and will most likley spam you with (Q) Bouncing Bomb and keep the lane pushed hard. If he manages to land his (W) Satchel Charge and place an (E) Hexplosive Minefield you can find yourself in a world of trouble. You really need to avoid his (E) Hexplosive Minefield as they will slow you a lot making it possible for him to land his other abilities. He's very immobile and only has his (W) Satchel Charge for escape potential, try to punish him if it's on cooldown - especially if your Jungler is around and able to gank. Concentrate on farming, take Barrier and avoid his skill-shots. TIP: You take less damage from his ultimate if you are not standing in the center of it.”

fwii says “Avoid his Q poke and match his waveclear. He's hard to approach early but easily killable after level 6. ”
Scyrine says “dodge all of his skillshots and hard engage. super squishy should be easy kill. ”

Scyrine says “He's super squishy, you should try to play agro lvl 3 and if you're still not hitting any skills then just wait for 6 and hard engage him.”
SCYRINE'S OTP GUIDE TO CARRYING WITH AKALI by Scyrine | Akali Player
FalleN3 says “If you don't take much damage from him before level 3 you can try for an all-in then, however I tend to try to play safe until level 6. He has a massive range advantage over you and will take full advantage of this. Try your best not to die in this lane early as it will put you at a serious disadvantage against him. He will end up pushing hard so farm under tower as best as you can. As long as you haven't fallen massively behind once you hit level 6 the lane swings to your favour. If you step on his mines you're gonna get slowed as well as take damage and this is going to make it much easier for him to land AA and abilities on you. Try to save your (E) for dodging his ulti if possible.”

Fuzzmonkey says “A nice poke match up, dodge all of his Q's and try and he all your Q's. You both work the same way since you're disengage is your E, same with his time bomb. Make sure you play as aggressive as possible if he isn't able to hit his skillshots. ”

[10.19] Aegox's Zoe Guide For Beginners by Aegox | Zoe Player
Fuzzmonkey says “Very very easy match up if you can dodge all of his Q's. He will most likely use his W to keep distance between you and him when you go in with your W. But if you manage to get your chain onto him whilst going in to him you should be able to out-trade him no matter what. Rinse and repeat. Same at level 6, using your chains will keep him from going anywhere.”

AP WormMaW Mid says “In this matchup it's crucial to understand how Ziggs Q works. It has bigger explosion radius, than "trigger" radius. That means that if he blows it up on minion, you might get damaged, which is how Ziggs mostly tries to harass you, but if you stand isolated from your minions, it should be fairly easy to avoid his Qs, because it literally has to jump on your face, to make it blow. Don't be too greedy and don't go into face to face all in trade, because thats where he can kite you over his mine field and finnish you off with his ult. Abuse the fact, that your skillshots are a bit more reliable than his ones.”
[S10] WormMaW's Guide for AP Kogmaw (build for ADC included) by AP WormMaW Mid | Kog'Maw Player
Yuki H. says “Very annoying to deal with, mainly because he is an AOE control mage. Ziggs primarily seeks to farm with his empowered autos and Q, all the while building mana items like Archangel's Staff or Luden's. He will probably purchase Zhonya's some time, so make sure to not get baited too hard, and check his item slots to make sure he does not have a Stopwatch or Zhonya's. It's fine to be pushed in against a Ziggs since it makes it easier for junglers to gank. Just try to avoid getting hit by his Qs when he is only trying to farm. Also, make sure to dodge his Satchel Charge (W) with your pre-positioned shadow so you can swap with it right after you ult. Otherwise, while you are displaced he will have enough time to jump and flash out.”

RedFire2055 says “He can counter push you. His tower destruction potential blocks your roaming . Skill Matchup.”

Hullos says “Just worse Vel and Xerath, he has a harder time keeping you away as he escape is not good enough most of the time. A good Ziggs can make it feel bad but at least its not a good Xerath. Keep away from roams as he can decimate your tower. ”
BloooodTV says “D-Blade. You just kind of beat him because he doesn't really deal that much damage early. If he for whatever reason puts himself in a position to be ran down then you can do just that. Take Conq.”

FalleN3 says “My advice in this match-up is to play safe until level 6. He has a massive range advantage over you and will take full advantage of this. Try your best not to die in this lane early as it will put you at a serious disadvantage against him. Farm with your (Q) if that is all you can do. As long as you haven't fallen massively behind once you hit level 6 the lane swings to your favour. If you step on his mines you're gonna get slowed as well as take damage and this is going to make it much easier for him to land AA and abilities on you.”

LunarVortex says “His poke is annoying but that's about it. Try to match his push with your W to prevent him from damaging your tower too much. Get early boots to dodge his poke.”

BCota says “Pokes you out of lane ask for ganks when you can. Try to farm as much as possible try to heal from raptors too. Take DShield. Again, if you can dodge skillshots like Faker you win this matchup as he cant damage you but you have a point-and-click Q”

TimRhabey says “Control and/or poke mages are always hard to play as gragas. Ziggs has way better scaling and waveclear than you all game, He can easily deny your teams entire push and hold the game making it last longer so he can scale and laning phase against him is a pain. Take the comet rune setup so you can waveclear as good as him and poke him during lane phase.”

[10.19] Hybrid Corki Guide by Shazzaam | Corki Player
Coldsong says “Ziggs is not very meta currently, but he is still very tedious to lane against due to his strong Q poke, waveclear from his E, and the fact that he can knock you away with his W. Make sure to get an early stopwatch or EoN to negate his ult damage.”
[Season 10] - Coldsong's Talon Guide! by Coldsong | Talon Player
Proma says “Dshield Look for engages when possible just watch out for abilities.”
elnino9 says “Dodge his Q bombs. Go aggressive if his abilities are on CD. Ziggs is a mana user and has to use up a lot of mana to poke, go in when he has none. He's Squishy and not really one of the hardest matchup, if Ziggs overextends go aggressive. Watch for his satchel when going for an all-in. Start Doran shield against him or boots to avoid his Q bombs, both good options.”
SkellyBirb says “Ziggs has a lot of poke, but little kill potential. Just use your shrines and play behind minions to make it hard for him to poke you.”

[10.18] Lao's Vladimir - Kneel before Vlad by laoshin3v3 | Vladimir Player
Veralion says “MANY BEADS. Third worst matchup. Dodge the game. His Q travels a mile and is deceptive. W doesn’t let you close distance. E zones you away from all farm. And even if you dodge all of that, his passive will still chip you down and force you back. You basically aren’t allowed to ever auto a creep, even under your own turret if the Ziggs has two hands and half a brain. You have one very brief window to all in him at 6 and gain some ground back, as he is fragile and will melt, but past that he will probably have too much gold on you. Fleet is necessary here. Your only hope is that you have a jungler that can take advantage of him while he’s denying you under turret. Ask to swap with top if the alternative matchups would be more beneficial. Thankfully, Ziggs is rare for reasons that I do not really understand, he is still REALLY good, so here’s hoping you’re never in this situation.”

Ghostwalker562 says “His poke can be devastating and his disengages and slows can be such a rough game. However, you do kill him so much faster but the ticking in the early game is what's most harmful to you. Use your E often to farm and as range because your is has a very far range.”

Lil Tidepod says “If you dodge all of his abilities, or the majority of them, Ziggs is useless. He does outrange you, but you should be able to play around his abilities. If you're gonna trade, wait for his knockup bomb to go down, or his AOE slow bombs. Beware when recalling after level 6, because he won't hesitate to ult you.”

Euphoric Toaster says “Annoying matchup. Hes able to clear your turrets pretty easily and does a good job at matching your push. Place your turrets away from the wave so he cant hit them and the wave with one Q. He has some mobility/utility with his Satchel Charge so he can be a tiny bit slippery, but isn't too hard to kill with jungle help.

Vispectra says “Ziggs is a poke-mage and he isn't very meta right now so you won't see him often. He will often harass you like Vel Koz just not as bad since it's fairly simple to dodge his abilities. However don't underestimate this rat's damage. His abilities hurt a LOT and TP is a must unless you want to lose your tower and give him all the plates. Ganks are advised and just a note that if he ults you and you're near the center , 1 R won't be enough to get you out of it if you don't react quick enough.”

maplecat21 says “He's annoying but gets outscaled at boots. If he has a brain you can't kill him though, so you have to babysit your tower to keep him from taking it.”

RagexAddict says “Ziggs isn't much of a threat to you in lane, but he can push you in when you're out of lane. His W can also break down low health turrets, so try to push him in as much as possible. Asserting your lane dominance against him is key in this lane matchup.”
Fluctuation says “Against Ziggs it's important to utilize his immobility against him. If he puts down his minefield and moves away from it, punish him. If he misses his Q, punish him. After level 6, be wary of his ult, since you can't really escape it when he's close to you.”

ParkChnm says “Same with Xerath, he outranged and outdamages Orianna a lot, even with E. In lane, try to stay away from minions since he his Q has a small AoE effect. Banshee's is a good item late game. If you do get onto Ziggs, he should be dead since he's really squishy.”

SmokeyEggs says “Hard to trade with since W lauches both champions in the opposite direction, and his wave clear and ability to respond to teamfights can be annoying, but his trading in skirmishes is weak so abuse that part and never let him push in.”
BicBee says “Stay away from minions. Ziggs is the strongest when long range. He's the weakest in close range so step forward if you want to harass and bully him. Push lane if you can and roam. Good Ziggs value farm more than solo kills in lane and will just stay safe until they get items for team fights. If your top/bot lane is low post 6 there's a good chance that Ziggs will step out of lane to try and ult them. ”

Enfurnal says “Ziggs has a Q that does AOE if hit. An easy way to dodge is to see where the Q is bouncing towards and move accordingly. His W is a circular launching pad that does little damage to you, but hella damage to your turret if it is below 25% HP. His E is a circular bomb that does single point damage (if you step on it or a minion). His R is a HUGE circle that nukes anything within the radius. My tip for his R is just run away from the circle (R, flash, etc) because it has a pretty high casting period.”

thedonk says “Don't try to walk up to him to do a Q+W combo. Poke him with W+Q+E or W+Q+R+E. Hurt him with those combos as much as possible. Dodge his Q's and he will try to use his E to knock you away or escape. ”

Padrepio says “During lanephase, a lot of his damage came from his passive: care of his empowered AAs. He can R on other lanes to get free kills, tell your teammates when he hit 6 and call every ss.”

qasddsa says “Tolerable lane. Run Fleet here with either a Corrupting Potion or Doran's Shield. Don't let him push against you as he can take towers really well and poke you at the same time. As you go into the mid and late game, he becomes relatively irrelevant against you because you can just pop him with Riftwalk stacked. If he doesn't group with his team and decides to split instead, you can either answer him with Riftwalk + Teleport or group and take objectives instead.”

Draczor says “Ziggs is no threat since he probably will only focus on pushing or poking you while keeping a distance from you as he knows that he won't win a trade against you. But you are able to poke him too with your laser. In the early game, pressure him enough so that he won't be able to farm unless he uses spells. Naturally, if he comes close poke him with Q and E otherwise try to kill him if you have ult and he has no means of running away fast. If he is low enough do not be afraid to Flash and use your combo to kill him.”

Sozzoh says “Ziggs isn't that hard to play against, but he does outrange you. Since his abilities are fairly easy to dodge, you can all-in him and kill him if he uses all his abilities trying to poke you. Abuse him early game if he uses his abilities to farm. That way he'll be out of mana and low on health. ”
Katapullt says “Start Dorans Shield or Boots to dodge his Q's. Try to get as many CS as possible. At lvl 6 you should be able to Outplay & kill him.”

ShockMaster says “This matchup is a bit complicated,like who made the first one shot win. Wait for him to use 2-3 abilities on minions,and go with a different combo: E+R(R instead of flash with 1 sec difference)+Flash+W+Q.This combo will surprise him and will not let him to escape with his W”
SeeMyShuriKennen by ShockMaster | Kennen Player
Smol Jelly says “Ziggs has long range poke, annoying AOE abilities, and better turret-taking abilities than you do. However, since you both have long range, his skills are pretty slow, so you can see them coming from a mile away. With no hard CC, he can't lock you down, and you have no dash so you don't really have to worry about his AoE minefield. Poke him out, and it should go your way.”
