Champion Review: Ziggs
Ziggs – The Hexplosives Expert
Ziggs is one of those champions that when you first load up the game you just want to play him. He’s a BLAST! (cheesy pun 1) I only played him on Dominion but let me give you my impressions of this little guy.
Ziggs has a very high AP ratio of .9 currently and this allows him to do some seriously EXPLOSIVE damage (2) to enemies weak against it. In Dominion I found that he’s able to control and push the lane very hard and a lot of flexibility in choosing his play style. I ended up playing him as a defensive juggernaut with a AP/Magic Pen build and some survivability. I find that when playing aggressive that it’s good to lead with your E and place it on top of the hero, throw down the explosive pack and knock them back towards you at the same time you toss a bouncing bomb. You can lead with his Ult at it’s an almost guaranteed insta gib. It’s also important to get a few attacks in there so you get your passive damage bonus.
If you are playing defensive on Dominion his E is good for blocking off paths to lanes and preventing someone from escaping and using the explosive pack to knock people away from the tower is also good. Use your bouncing bomb to finish off anyone taking tower damage.
Defensive Build This gives you a ton of health, AP and Magic Pen and really good damage.
