Zed, the Master of Shadows is the newest champion to join League of Legends, Riot Games has announced.

The experienced ninja is a multi-role champion and is said to have potential for exceptional battle play in both mid lane and jungle.

His energy-based gameplay revolves around the creation and control of dark illusion shadow clones which differ to other champion's illusions as his clones play a key part in his mastery. His abilities are duplicated when clones are active which equates to greater damage, additional effects and even being able to engage enemies from unexpected angles by switching places with clones.
