How to lane against zed with red pot

#1KeyBladeAcePosted 4/22/2013 6:04:09 PM
I recently played a diana vs zed mid, normally i do quite well with diana, but against zed I absolutely could not do jack. he started red pot which basically meant i would lose any all in, plus he could trade way harder knowing that he had the red pot. i wanted to start cloth 5 but I needed a ward (think they had mao jungle) and i didnt think 2 pots would cut it, so i got flask + ward +1 pot. he ended up 40 cs ahead of me really quick as he was pretty much given free rein to farm, while i had to play incredibly safe (still died to his full combo). also they had both khazix and zed on their team so I wasnt sure who was mid. what should i have done?

yes I thought about that but I never really start red pot as mid lane, and I actually thought khazix was gonna be mid, I understand that for top, but in mid there's never really the assumption that both will start red pot? unless its a zed thing i guess

They're nerfing it soon anyway. The best thing to do is passively farm til 6, and then use that power to roam and get kills in other lanes instead of attempting to 1v1 him.

If you're gonna be fighting any duelist, start Red Pot. Khaz and Zed are both strong duelers, so you start Red Pot vs both so their all ins are harder
