Zeri Mid Skill Order

Living Battery (Passive): Zeri's passive ability.

Burst Fire (Q): Primary damage ability.

Ultrashock Laser (W): Utility/CC ability.

Spark Surge (E): Mobility tool.

Lightning Crash (R): Ultimate ability.

- Level 1: Q

- Level 2: E

- Level 3: W

- Max Order: Q -> E -> W

- Take a point in your R (ultimate) whenever possible (levels 6, 11, and 16).

Zeri Early Game:

Focus on farming and poking the enemy laner. Use your abilities to shove the wave quickly and look for roams, especially top lane using your E on walls.

Zeri Mid Game:

Continue to push waves and roam. Look for picks and objectives. Start grouping with your team for skirmishes and objectives.

Zeri Late Game:

Position safely in teamfights, using your burst combo (E(Q autos)/R/P(autos)) to eliminate key targets. Always try to proc First Strike before going in.

Zeri Teamfighting:

Stay at the backline and wait for the right moment to unleash your burst combo. Use your mobility to dodge key enemy abilities and reposition. Focus on taking down high-value targets like enemy carries.

Zeri around Objectives:

Dragons: Help your team secure vision around the dragon pit. Use your burst to help take it down quickly.

Baron: Similar to dragons, but be more cautious due to Baron's higher damage output and the potential for enemy ambushes.


Zeri Threats:

Kassadin: An extreme threat. If you don't outscale him early, he becomes a nightmare in the mid/late game.

It's all fun and games until someone gets outplayed. Thanks for tuning into our AP Zeri Mid Guide – where we make mid-lane magic happen, one shock at a time!
