Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Ziggs is a lane bully. He is commonly played at Mid Lane because of his lane dominance. He also destroys turrets really fast.

Start with working on your Archangel's Staff. Buy Tear of the Goddess on your first recall to start stacking up. Use your First Ability to quickly stack up your Tear. Ziggs first ability has a very short cooldown. Then build into Luden's Echo for more lane dominance for all of your skills benefit from this item. Liandry's Torment is one of the best mage items in the game right now so it is a must for more damage in team fights. Your boot upgrade is always Ionian Boots of Lucidity into Stasis Enchant. Ziggs doesn't have any defensive skills against Assasins like Zed, Fizz, etc. Stasis Enchant helps Ziggs survive fights against those champions. Lastly, build Rabadon's Deathcap and Void Staff to complete your mage build. Situational Items like Awakened Soulstealer, so your ultimate can be spammed every team fight. Morellonomicon against heavy healing from enemies like Dr. Mundo, Olaf, Darius, Soraka, Sona, etc. Teleport is a key situational item for this build if your team composition heavily relies on Split Pushing to win.

Ziggs Runes

Best Runes for Ziggs

Summon Aery
Summon Aery
Second Wind
Second Wind
Manaflow Band
Manaflow Band

Some may argue that Electrocute is a staple for Mage Mid Laners, but in case of Ziggs, Summon Aery is better because of Ziggs poke potential. Brutal for extra AP. Regeneration for sustain after trades or for mana regen, in which Ziggs struggles with. Manaflow Band for its synergy with Archangel's Staff.

Basically, Ziggs is a lane bully with heavy damage to turrets. All you have to do during the laning phase is to poke with your First Ability, then always use your Third Ability in the middle of minion waves to deter your opponent in trying to close in on you. In case your enemy tries to engage within your range, use your Second Ability to knock him and yourself away from each other. A huge tip in using Ziggs is to always try to auto attack your opponent when your passive meter is full for more damage. Another tip is to always use your Second Ability on an enemy turret whenever it is in range. Remember that when an enemy turret is below 35% HP, your Second Ability instantly destroys it. Try to look for undefended turrets around the map and cast your Second Ability from fog to immediately destroy it. Ziggs has an average roam potential with his ultimate. You just have to get within range to help your Side Lanes or Jungler for extra damage.
