Best comps for Zed



  • 5 Underground
  • 3 Lasercorps
  • 2 Duelist
  • 2 Sureshot
  • 2 Brawler
  • 1 Ace

This comp is built on the Underground feature, which gives you access to a ton of loot as the game advances.

The objective of this short level 8 reroll battle is to get everyone with less than 4 gold to 3 stars in order to win the game.

Best team to develop this is:

1-Samira, who is a member of Sureshot and Underground, would injure the team the most.

2-As a duelist, Kayle would do a lot of harm from the sidelines.

3-Zed is a skilled duelist and a member of the Lasercorps. In this fight, he would be highly damaging.

4-Ezreal is another Underground participant.

5-Because she heals your team and deals a lot of damage, Sona is a very strong player. She also has the Underground attribute.

6-Senna would employ the premium Sureshot.

7-With members of the Lasercorps and Brawlers who can resist heavy damage and shock a sizable number of enemies, Sejuani boasts a strong front line.

8-Vi would switch the Underground trait to 5 and activate the Brawler trait.



  • 3 Lasercorps
  • 6 Duelist
  • 2 Hacker

This team is made up of six duelists, giving them a fast attack speed whenever they strike something.

This is a progressive reroll to level 8 because the majority of the champions are cheap and need to be set to level 3.

If Hecarim were swapped for Zed, Zed would become an assassin with access to the enemy's backlines.

Perfect team for this build:

1-Vayne provides the majority of the damage because she has the Anima Squad, Duelist, and Recon traits active, which boost her damage.

2-Nilah is the main tank in the front line. If you stacked three iron solari lockets on her, she would improve the Duelist and Star Guardian traits.

3-Fiora can help on the front lines because she possesses both ox-force and duelist abilities.

4-Zoe is a magician; therefore, she can set her adversaries on fire. She can jokingly summon a dummy when her HP is low. concurrently with turning on the Hacker trait.

5-Gangplank is a fairly skilled duelist, much like other champions with similar traits.

6-Zed was an assassin due to his tremendous damage output as a hacker and duelist.

7-Yasuo is one of the best duelists since he deals a lot of damage, protects himself, and eliminates his adversaries.

8-Since she will also enable the Lasercorps trait, which will increase Zed and Yasuo's drone damage output, Sejuani would make a fantastic frontline tank.



  • 6 Duelist
  • 2 Hacker

Six duelists make up this team, giving them a lot of attack speed each time they hit something.

The majority of the champions are inexpensive and need to be set to level 3, therefore this is a slow reroll to level 8.

Zed would turn into an assassin with access to the enemy's backlines if Hecarim were swapped out for him.

Best group to create this:

1-Since Vayne has the Anima Squad, Duelist, and Recon traits enabled, which increase her damage, she deals the majority of the damage.

2-Nilah is the front line's primary tank. She would enhance the Duelist and Star Guardian qualities if you stacked three iron solari lockets on her.

3-Because she possesses both the ox-force and duelist qualities, Fiora may assist on the front lines.

4-Zoe can light her foes on fire because she is a magician. When her HP is low, she can summon a dummy as a joke. simultaneously with activating the Hacker trait.

5-Like other champions with comparable attributes, Gangplank is a fairly strong duelist.

6-Zed could inflict a lot of harm as a Hacker and Duelist, making him an assassin.

7-One of the strongest duelists is Yasuo because he deals a lot of damage, shields himself, and takes down his opponents.
