Zed Jungle Tips and Tricks

  • Zed doesn't have any hard crowd-control, this makes him a relatively bad early game ganker. Try to pick off free kills on allied lanes without crowd-control effects, or gank those that do have it.
  • To add pressure to the enemy laners or jungler, use the typical harass combo: Living ShadowShadow SlashRazor Shuriken as this slows the enemies first, making them more likely to get hit by both of the shuriken.
  • Even though Death Mark is used primarily as an engage skill, it can also be carefully timed to avoid enemy's skill shots and crowd-control effects.
  • Contempt for the Weak deals surprising amounts of damage, allowing Zed to solo the early game Dragon and Herald.
  • Casting Living Shadow in the Baron or Dragon pit will give you vision of the area. Casting it again will instantly teleport you to it, allowing you do Shadow Slash + Razor Shuriken + Smite to easily steal late game objectives.

Pro Zed Jungle Path —full clear with a Red Buff start

  • The Pro Zed Jungle Path is a full clear which has a start on the Red Brambleback. Start by killing the Red Buff with Shadow Slash and unlocking Razor Shuriken at level two. Next up, kill the Krugs & Raptors as this grants you level three— allowing you to take Living Shadow as your third skill. Clear the Murk Wolves, Blue Sentinel and Gromp. These will give you level four, upgrading Razor Shuriken. After this you can head over to the river and kill the Rift Scuttler. Now you're ready to gank a lane, invade the enemy's jungle or recall.
  • This Zed Jungle route can also be modified to start with leashless Raptors instead, in that case go with this clear order Raptors → Krugs → Red Brambleback.

Zed Jungle Path —full clear with a Blue Buff start 

  • This Zed Jungle Path features a full clear with a start on the Blue Buff. Go ahead and unlock Shadow Slash as your first skill. When the Blue Sentinel dies and you gain level two, unlock Razor Shuriken and clear the Gromp & Murk Wolves. Level three allows you to unlock Living Shadow and then go ahead path towards the opposite side of the jungle. Once you arrive there, kill the Raptors, Red Brambleback and Krugs. At level four he upgrade Razor Shuriken and head over to clear the Rift Scuttler. Once the Scuttler is dead it's possible for you to gank a lane and then recall back to base.
  • This Zed Jungle Clear is great because energy regeneration from the Blue Buff kill increases the entire clear's speed and has higher uptime on the Red Buff which is useful for ganking.
