mid, Dont go top because most top out damage you and your ulti is useless on them because theystack health, while in mid u can easily zone out squishy mid while out damaging them and your ulti is more usefull because ap mids are usually not tanky.

Zed, although quite outclassed and impaired due to the fact that his design and execution don't match, is still much better then most AP mids. Since that's the place where he outclasses the most heroes, that's also where you should play him. Remember, as mid you could transition to roaming mid game, should you wish.

Level E followed by W. If snowballing, stack bloodthirsters and build some penetration if your opposition builds armor. If not, build tanky dps. Armor Pen and AD Runes always. Zed syncs with movement speed very well. Yo do the most damage from your abilities. Even when built Tanky Dps you shouldn't be consistently auto attacking.

id say jungle > mid > top
zed's laning isn't too great against most champs

as a counterpick, not as a specific lane, because zed fits in a lot of places

Preferably, he does well in mid. Top lane he can counter squishies, and also poke down some bruisers too, because he has a reliable poke/escape.

Jungler isn't really too good honestly. He can clear fast but his ganks don't really kill until lvl 6 or higher.

Max E, W, then Q as your final skill.

Always start out with 9 hp and 2 wards for top and mid lane.

Your final build should include some of the following: Ionian/Merc/Tabi, Blood Thirster (x2 if you want), Black Cleaver, Last Whisper (Optional), Mercurials (Optional), Guardian Angel, Warmogs (Optional), Maw of Malmortius (Optional), and Sword of the Divine if it's a stomp game.

You can play him mid as an AD-Caster (AD Mage) like Talon, Urgot, or Pantheon.
Or you can play him top.

Personally he's not fun in the jungle..
Here's a good build:

Iceborn Gauntlet (Situational)
Trinity Force (Depends if you go with the rest of the build)
Black Cleaver
Warmog's
Atma's Impaler
Mercury Treads / Berserker's Greaves / Boots of Swiftness.

This is the "Caster" way to build him, not intended to run in with basic attacks but instead utilizing his kit and trinity force with a tanky build and Atma's.. Like a mage, he uses his spells for combat.


You dont build tanky with zed sir. You build merc, black cleaver, 3 bt, last whisper.
With this, you 2 hit kill everyone.

Jungle, because if you waste your W in lane, the opponent will all in you, push you out or kill and you and then free farm.

Zed's an energy hero with an AOE and two closers, of course he technically the best in the jungle...Except this is one theorycraft I personally disagree with. For one, there's the fact that practically all other fury/energy/manaless hero is better suited to be in the jungle. That alone is enough to invalidate the idea.

And get focused and die.

You're gonna need SOME kind of defense.
