I bought him because he's good and looks badass. I'm not going to lie about that. However, goddamn he's hard to use. How do you use Zed effectively? Before I get into choosing whether I want to play mid or jungle (i heard his jungling and top are also quite good), I'd like to learn the basics, combos. His W is so goddamn hard to use. Is his W's range supposed to be really short? Because it seems like it is whenever I use it. How do you guys use him?
If you were to use W and then ulti, your ulti would do more damage right? Then shouldn't you open with W and then ult? What are some good combos?
Your ult mark would only do more damage if you hit the enemy with a third shuriken from your w. Otherwise, W will not increase your ult damage in any way. You can use W after using your ult to achieve this (and it'd probably be better too because you can line up your w after your enemy reacts to you ulting them). Usually, it'd best to hold your to your w if you ult straight on someone in case you need it to escape or continue chasing.
