In-depth ziggs guide
Quick Ziggs AP Mid Build
Best Overall Build
My name is inva/invasaur and I'm a low elo player, I've been playing for around 2 years and recently I tried this build and it works wonders to easily win your games without using your brain.
This build works for low elo and maybe a bit higher, it depends on the drafts and your own knowledge.
Ziggs is a tower-shredder and this is what we are going to abuse in this guide, a few pros and cons of this build.
-Easy to learn and kinda brainless gameplay
-You can hard carry with this
-You can snowball and get all turret platings before minute 10 if you get a good matchup
-You'll play without mana until your first recall
-Roaming is not recommended until level 6
-Some matchups you won't get to touch their turret until plating has fallen
This is my recommended runes for most matchups, you can use dark harvest for late game scaling or electrocute, but I don't recommend it. Comet is perfect for poking and getting them low enough for a gank or making them recall. Demolish and bone plating is a must.
- Rune Page
The spells are a must I'd say because you'll need the tp to be around the map and flash is needed in case of a gank because you will be pushing a lot. Ignite is not recommended since you're not getting close to them unless you're probably about to die.
- New Group
The skill path is a common Max Q into Max E, I don't recommend maxing W second because you will need the E damage to clear waves and you will already have enough damage to turrets with demolish to get them low enough.
- Skill Path
For the items I strongly recommend Liandry's even if they're all squishies, I don't think Luden's or Crown would be better. If you're in a matchup that can oneshot you, build hourglass second instead of shadowflame. If you get a strong gold lead, you can build Deathcap second. Sorcerer shoes are a must
Try your best to stay in lane until you have 1300 gold since Lost chapter is a strong powerspike in this build.
- Starting items
- First recall
- Full build
You can win most matchups if you play safe enough, remember that you're playing for turrets not kills. Most melee champions are easy to beat just by poking them, hardest melees to beat are akali, yone and yasuo since they have a lot of mobility and burst.
Mages are the safest matchups and theres only a couple that can kill you in lane, but that doesn't mean that you lose lane to them. Hardest mage matchups are swain, heimerdinger and lux.
- Easy matchups
- Good synergies
Remember that this guide is meant for low elo and based on my experience, higher elo players are more mechanical skilled and can outplay this strat.
With ziggs you will learn to look at the map constantly, theres always an ult that can change a fight even if you're not close.
Don't be shy on your ult, many people only use ziggs' ult on low health champions and objectives, but you can use it to take a whole wave if it crashed under turret or to start a fight. It has a kinda low cooldown so use it a lot.
Some people may not know this but your passive charged attack resets cooldown when you use your abilities so if you're hitting turrets spam your E and Q to reset it, and remember that your W destroys the turret if it has low health.
Thats it, if you have read all through thank you :), I hope I didn't forget anything.
This was my first guide
