Best comps for Zed



  • 4 Slayer
  • 4 Shadow isles
  • 1 Redeemer
  • 3 Yordle
  • 2 Bastion
  • 2 Rogue

This sluggish level 8 reroll has excellent economics; it rerolls after you have 50 gold to get the majority of the champions to 3 stars.

The composition revolves on the level 4 yordle and Gwen as the primary damage dealer and is full of champions with 1-2 cost and yordles, which calls for higher levels of champions.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Gwen is the primary damage dealer in this composition since she has both the shadow isles trait, which increases her tankiness, and the slayer trait, which increases her damage output.

2. Zed possesses both the slayer and rogue qualities, making him a superb damage dealer and assassin.

3. Kled is an effective tank in the front lines since he has two lives—one for himself and one for Skarl—and he also has the slayer and yrodle traits.

4. Senna, who also has the dark isles trait, will be sheltering troops and delivering massive damage from the backlines.

5. Maokai, who has the shadow isles trait, takes a lot of damage while self-healing.

6. Viego is a requirement since he has both rogue and shadow isles qualities.

7. Poppy combines qualities with both Bastion and Yrodle, making her an excellent tank on the front lines.

8. Teemo will be tossing his mushrooms as a yrodle from the backlines, inflicting a lot of damage.



  • 4 Rogue
  • 3 Frejlord
  • 2 Zaun
  • 2 Deadeye

This is a quick level 8 reroll with excellent economics to level up all the champions with 2-3 cost while concentrating on Katarina.

This composition focuses on the rogue trait or more of assassins to eliminate the adversaries' backlines.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Katarina is the primary damage producer in this composition, and she has the Rogue trait, which will cause her to become an assassin if her health drops to 50%.

2. Lissandra is a great choice since she would shock opponents, giving the rogue members time to inflict the necessary damage.

3. Due to her ability to take a ton of damage while stun-casting a huge number of opponents, Sejuani is now one of the finest tanks in TFT.

4. Because Urgot has both the Zaun and deadeye qualities, he can do massive amounts of damage while taking far more punishment.

5. Zed, a rogue member, is capable of doing some decent damage.

6. Viego is the third rogue member you have.

7. Ekko is a crucial choice since he has both rogue and zaun qualities, healing himself and doing significant damage.

8. Ashe is a crucial choice since Lissandra, Sejuani, and Urgot share the frejlord and deadeye, respectively.1. SLAYING ALL DAY



  • 6 Slayer
  • 1 Darkin
  • 3 Noxus
  • 2 Rogue
  • 2 Jaggernaut

This is a gradual level 8 reroll in an effort to level up every champion at a cost of 2-3, notably Katarina, who will be the major damage producer.

Given that the competition is centered on Katarina's role as a slayer, a slayer symbol is a must.

Best setup for this comp:

1. Katarina is the major damage producer since she has both the noxus and rogue qualities, but in order to maximize her potential, a slayer emblem is a need.

2. Due to her slayer characteristic, Gwen is an excellent source of damage and tankiness in the front lines.

3. Kled must be included since he has both noxus and slayer qualities.

4. Darius shares the juggernaut, which gives him additional tankiness, and the noxus, which raises his total stats, making him a formidable damage dealer and tank on the front lines.

5. Kayle will enhance the slayer attribute.

6. Attrox is your fifth slayer, juggernaut, and darkin member. He will be inflicting a lot of damage on the front lines while also healing and applying CC.

7. Zed is your second rogue and sixth slayer, which is a terrific choice for this lineup.
