Item Build Description

Additional information on the items


Starting items:  Amplifying TomeAmplifying Tome this will be your starting item like 100% of the time with my build 

Boots: So why did I put Gluttonous GreavesGluttonous Greaves in my build? because of its passive, it has a +8% magical vamp which means your skills will heal you if you land it on the enemy. And Ionian Boots of LucidityIonian Boots of Lucidity is pretty much self-explanatory it gives you +15 Ability haste. It's your choice which you prefer in either of those. [Stasis Enchant] is a great boot enchantment against an enemy that can go straight into you and one-shot you like ZedZed FizzFizz EvelynnEvelynn .

Core items: Luden's EchoLuden's Echo great first item for ZiggsZiggs , it will give you offensive power and mana sustain, and its special effects will also increase your poking/siege power.

 Question: Why not Archangel's StaffArchangel's Staff as the first item? well, it's just pure overkill in terms of mana sustain   Luden's EchoLuden's Echo should be enough for ZiggsZiggs

Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment is good against tanky composition because of its unique passive you will damage more if the fight becomes longer and you deal 1% of the enemy's max health. 

Rabadon's DeathcapRabadon's Deathcap is a mandatory mage item this will increase your offensive power. but you need to build some AP item first so it scales. 

Void StaffVoid Staff this item will make sure that you will deal damage in the mid to late game because it penetrates your enemies MR. 

Lich BaneLich Bane this item will make your auto-attack hit like a truck but the downside is that you need to be closer to your enemies so make sure that you position well. 

Situational items:  MorellonomiconMorellonomicon building this item will make your enemies reduces all healing received and other regeneration. Build this item if the enemy team comp have a lot of healing like Dr. MundoDr. Mundo SonaSona SeraphineSeraphine etc.

How To Use Skills

Use Bouncing BombBouncing Bomb to poke and shove waves, Bouncing BombBouncing Bomb is your main damage source.

Always save Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge when someone engages you so you can just put it down and escape. you can also Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge people to a wall to stun and catch people out. you want to max this second because it's a fun ability with a lot of potential. you can also jump over most walls! the thick ones will take more practice. 

Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield can deal damage and slow enemy who walk into it usually put this in the entrance near the objective to zone the enemy.

Use Mega Inferno BombMega Inferno Bomb to look around the map because it's easier and faster rather than swiping your screen. you can also use your Mega Inferno BombMega Inferno Bomb to steal or secure objectives like [Dragon] and [Baron]


Ziggs

Early Game

Try to play safe because you have the ChampionChampion rune and always track their jungle and help your jungle whenever he's going to do scuttle crab. Focus on Csing (last hitting creeps) to get your Luden's EchoLuden's Echo before the Dragon spawns, With Luden's EchoLuden's Echo you can push the wave fast try doing it to prevent the enemy mid lane to roam and if he roams he's gonna miss a lot of cs.

Ziggs

Mid To Late Game

when you got your core build of Luden's EchoLuden's Echo , Liandry's TormentLiandry's Torment , and [Rabadon's Deathcap ] you will deal a lot of damage your team should look for pushing the turret cause with this build you can push turret really fast. And before going to team fight try to poke the enemy already before the team fight happens so they will be lower and be scared to engage.

How To TeamFight As Ziggs

When ahead: 

When mages are ahead, there’s nothing really stopping them apart from their own greediness. As mages like ZiggsZiggs can do a lot of burst damage, it’s better for them to focus the backline if they’re overextended. But as ZiggsZiggs is quite squishy, he may unable to make it into the enemy's backline. This is where you should prioritize your damage on the enemy frontline even though you could kill the enemy ADC instantly.

Even:

just like before focus on the front line if you can get the backline

Behind:

When behind you don't really have the burst power to kill the enemy instantly so you should really focus on the enemy front line and save your Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge to peel you or your teammates if someone engages.
