Ziggs is all about poking and zoning his opponent, and pushing the lane as quickly as he can. He deals excellent damage, but is easily locked down - so be mindful of ganks coming from the midlane river.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Bouncing Bomb for the waveclear and poke.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Satchel Charge, for more zoning.
  • First Back - Start working towards Liandry's Anguish.

Tips & Tricks

  • Casting a spell reduces your passive's cooldown.
  • Bouncing Bomb bounces up to three times, so learn to judge its range. 
  • It can also bounce over minions, low walls, and enemy champions. 
  • Satchel Charge can knock you over walls, and it destroys towers below a health threshold. Use it as a gap closer, a defensive spell, or a siege weapon.
  • Zigg's W, E, and R all grant vision of the target area.
  • Mega Inferno Bomb takes longer to detonate depending on the distance it needs to travel. Use it in shorter range for quicker damage. 
  • It has exceptional range, and a low cooldown. Spam it often. 
  • Bouncing Bomb and Mega Inferno Bomb can be used when you're being propelled by Satchel Charge. 
  • Mega Inferno Bomb deals more damage at the centre of the target area.
