    You should be. It is not forgiven until you bask in the glory of Zeds reputation.

    I never die alone. Usually my death results in the death of 2 or 3 of the enemy. A few days ago, I was playing Skarner. I charged in full force into the enemy, I died but I put out enough damage my irl friend playing fiora got a penta kill, his first one.

    I can't wait to rage every time I almost kill him just to have him switch places with his clone.

    Probaly another assasin rather see a new tank/support.
    i dont get it. Why do people keep asking for tanks/support champions when 95% of the people asking for them are too bad to use said champions properly.
    Last game i had some wanker complaining that he wanted a new support, that he was tired of playing soraka. Said scrub didnt buy wards, or provide any meaningful support whatsoever.

    Maybe they want new ones cause they can't play the ones already released.

    Then people are lazy if they can't, atleast, play one assassin right... Either that or they are playing the wrong role/champions, still.

    His skills have been posted along with his lore. Here it is.

    For those that can't get to it, below are the skills and lore:

    A forbidden new champion stalks the Fields of Justice in the upcoming patch: Zed, the Master of Shadows. Deadly in many roles, including mid lane and jungle, this dark assassin’s energy-based gameplay revolves around conjuring and commanding shadow clones.

    Abilities:

    Contempt for the Weak (Passive): Whenever Zed attacks an enemy below 50% Health, he deals an additional 8% of their maximum Health as magic damage. This effect has a short cooldown.
    Razor Shuriken: Zed and his shadow both throw their shurikens, dealing physical damage to any target they pass through. Each Shuriken deals less damage to targets beyond the first.
    Living Shadow: Zed’s shadow dashes forward, remaining in place for a short duration. Zed’s shadow will duplicate his spells. Activating Living Shadow again while his shadow is active will cause Zed to switch positions with his shadow. If both Zed and his shadow strike the same target with Razor Shurikens or Shadow Slash, Zed re-gains some energy and the target suffers an additional effect: Razor Shurikens deal additional bonus damage and the slow from Shadow Slash is dramatically increased.
    Shadow Slash: Zed and his shadow both create a burst of shadow, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies. Zed’s Shadow Slash slightly reduces the cooldown of Living Shadow by for each unit struck. The shadow’s Shadow Slash briefly slows enemies.
    Death Mark: Zed sinks into the shadows and dashes to his target, dealing physical damage. He also spawns a Living Shadow beyond the target, which duplicates his spells and marks the target. After 3 seconds, the mark will detonate, dealing physical damage based on the damage dealt to the target by Zed and his shadow while the mark was active. Zed can reactivate this ability to switch positions with this shadow.

    Unlike other champions with illusions, Zed’s shadow clone is the lynchpin in his kit. With a shadow clone active, Zed’s abilities are duplicated, allowing him to deal more damage, apply additional effects, or even engage an enemy from an unexpected angle. Zed can even switch places with his clones to perform surprise initiations or quickly head off a fleeing enemy. This ability to strategically reposition combined with some hefty bursts of both physical and magic damage to make Zed versatile across multiple roles.

    When playing Zed in lane, Razor Shuriken can both harass the enemy and rapidly clear minions, making him a powerful bully. Spamming Razor Shuriken allows Zed to shove the lane and keep pressure up, buy time to roam, or stifle a push to drive enemies off his tower. Meanwhile, using Living Shadow to set up creative angles on your lane opponent can complicate juke attempts and allow you to land full damage nukes.

    Zed’s ganking and pursuit power also makes him an ideal jungler. Switching places with your shadow clone via Living Shadow creates opportunities for lightning-fast initiations, escapes, and even buff steals. The powerful slow from a cloned Shadow Slash can also lock down an enemy champion, leaving him vulnerable to execution from a heavy hitting attack charged with Contempt for the Weak.

    Once the team fights start, Zed’s clone enables him to alternately deploy his abilities from a safe distance or deal even more damage when he charges into the fray. He can also combine Living Shadow with Shadow Slash to blanket an area with a high-intensity slow, throwing off enemy positioning. Finally, Death Mark is an excellent cleanup ability to chase down and finish off fleeing low-health champions. The bonus magic damage from Contempt for the Weak is a great way to top off Death Mark’s detonation damage for surefire killing blows.

    Managing this clone-and-combo kit is crucial to dominating with Zed. Strategically positioning Zed and his clone for a two-pronged assault before deploying your skillshots will ultimately make or break your success on the Fields of Justice.


    Lore:

    Zed is the first ninja in 200 years to unlock the ancient, forbidden ways. He defied his clan and master, casting off the balance and discipline that had shackled him all his life. Zed now offers power to those who embrace knowledge of the shadows, and slays those who cling to ignorance.
    An orphan, Zed was taken in and trained by a great ninja master. Only one other student appeared to be Zed's equal - the master's son, Shen. It seemed Zed could never win the favor of the master, as every match between the rivals ended in a draw. Frustrated and jealous, he sought an advantage. The young ninja ventured into a sealed part of the clan's temple, where he found an ornate, foreboding box. Sensing the dark knowledge within, Zed knew he should not open it, but he peered inside nonetheless. In an instant, shadows touched his mind, revealing techniques that had long been hidden. Now armed with a secret edge, he challenged Shen, and this time he defeated the master's son. He expected praise and recognition in his moment of victory, but somehow the master knew Zed had used forbidden ways, and banished him.
    Humiliated, the young ninja wandered for years. His bitterness turned to ambition, and he began to train others in the style of the shadows. As his power grew, so did his circle of followers, but he knew that without the box, his technique would never be perfect. One day, Zed looked at his followers and saw that his students were now an army. He led them back to the temple to claim his prize. At the gates, he was surprised to find the old master waiting, receiving Zed and his disciples as if they were welcome guests. The old man laid his sword at Zed's feet, declaring that he had failed Zed as his master. By banishing his former student, the master had doomed Zed to the shadows, instead of leading him to the balanced path. The old man implored Zed to enter the temple, destroy the box, and lead his followers to balance. The dark ninja followed the master inside. Moments later, the assembled ninjas heard Zed cry out in pain. Mysteriously, he emerged unscathed, and threw the severed head of the master at Shen's feet. Screaming in rage, Zed commanded his followers to slaughter the master's students and seize the box.
    That day, the old ninja order fell. Though many students died, some escaped thanks to Shen's heroic efforts. Now the temple is a dark training ground for the Order of the Shadow. Zed rules as the Order's master, and his edict is simple: perfect one's technique, and kill all ninjas who refuse to embrace the shadows.
    ''Balance is a lie - we are the true ninjas.'' -Zed

    Edit: Crap Didn't see Duronos' post sorry.
    SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARK!

    I hate complaining about first impressions based on aesthetics alone, but that is honestly the most forgettable looking new champion I have seen since I started playing.

    I'm hoping he makes a good addition, though.
    Behind every invincible tank and pro DPS is an OOM healer, rolling their eyes.

    That's one reason why I think they release so many champions. To suite the tastes of billions of people. I love champions with dashes. I love that type of ability. Just like charge abilities in WoW.

    I think he looks great. Nice style but isn't over doing it.

    Edited his lore and abilities into the OP.

    Looks interesting to be sure. I don't think he has a dash, but that his shadow moves forward while he stays where he is. The wording is a little weird. I'll pick him up since I love my manaless junglers.

    Well it's more of a teleport type thing then a dash. The Shadow dashes, then Zed can swap locations with it.
