Passive - Contempt for the Weak
Whenever Zed auto attacks an enemy below 50% health, he deals an additional 8% of their maximum health as magic damage. This effect can not occur on the same target more than once every 10 seconds.
Q - Razor Shuriken
Zed and his shadow (if you have used his W or R) both throw their shurikens, each dealing physical damage to the first enemy they pass through and 70% physical damage anything after the first hit.
Living Shadow: Additional shurikens striking the same enemy deal 50% damage, but restore Energy.
Cooldown - 6 seconds
Cost - 75/70/65/60/55 Energy
Physical Dmg - 70/110/150/190/230 + (100% bonus AD)
Shadow Shuriken - 35/55/75/95/115 + (50% bonus AD)
W - Living Shadow
Zed's Shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for 4 seconds. Reactivating this ability will cause Zed to switch places with his shadow.
Zed's Shadow will mimic his spell casts. If both strike the same target, Zed regains some energy. The energy restore can only occur once per cast.
Cooldown - 22/20.5/19/17.5/16
Cost - 40/35/30/25/20 Energy
Energy Restored - 20/25/30/35/40
E - Shadow Slash
Zed and his shadow (if you have used his W or R) both create a burst of shadow, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies.
Zed's Slash reduces the cooldown of Living Shadow by 1 second for each enemy struck. The Shadow's Slash slows enemies for 1.5 seconds.
Living Shadow: Overlapping Shadow Slashes striking the same enemy do not do additional damage, but slow for 50% more and restore energy.
Cooldown - 3 seconds
Cost - 50 Energy
Physical Dmg - 60/90/120/150/180 + (90% bonus AD)
Slow - 20/25/30/35/40%
Overlapping Slow - 30/37.5/45/52.5/60%
R - Death Mark
Zed marks an enemy champion for death. He then sinks into the shadows and dashes toward them, dealing physical damage equal to 100% of his attack damage and spawning a living shadow beyond them, which mimics casted spells. Zed can reactivate this ability to switch places with his shadow.
After 3 seconds, the mark will detonate, dealing physical damage equal to a percentage of all magic and physical damage dealt to the target by Zed and his shadows while the mark was active.
Cooldown - 120/100/80
Cost - None
Detonation Dmg - 40/45/50% of damage dealt
What do I think?
This champion has a lot of utility. He can burst down a single enemy champion with using his skills simultaneously.
His Q is rather weak, but if you use his W at the same time, the additional damage makes this ability a good way to burst an opponent from a distance.
His W reminds me of Le Blanc, but instead of just having a 'return point', the Shadow mimic's his abilities and auto attacks nearby enemy targets.
His E is really small and hard to hit the same target as your shadow. It does do a decent amount of damage for being an AoE skill.
His R is his bread and butter (just like most champions). Using his R to initiate an attack, you can use the rest of your skills to burst the enemy down.
The combination I am seeing with Zed is, activate your R, use your E to slow the target, activate your W, hit the target with your Q, and if that is not enough auto attack your target to get the 8% of their maximum health, AND IF THAT'S NOT ENOUGH use either your W or R again (which ever one is closest to the target and if you haven't already done so) to get close enough to the target to burst down with either your Q and E again.
Once I am able to play him more (this is tough since you cant make a custom on the PBE by yourself and no one is on right now that I know to do so) I will be breaking down a build for him.
