Zoe is a unique champion, but in order to do well, you need to learn which items to buy during battles. As a long-distance Mage champion, you will need to purchase items that improve power, movement speed and mana. Check out!

Initial Items

Doran's Ring

Cost: 400 (400)
  • +60 Life;
  • +15 Ability Power;
  • + 50% base Mana Regeneration;
  • UNIQUE Passive: Restores 4 Mana when killing a unit.

2xMagic Potion

Cost: 50 (50)
  • Restores 150 Life over 15 seconds.
Doran's Ring is the ideal item for almost all magicians. Hit points, Ability Power and Base Mana Regeneration are the key attributes for the first moments of the battle. The two Magic Potions are very important to stay alive.

Core Items

Lich doom

Cost: 3200 (450)
  • +80 Ability Power;
  • + 7% Movement Speed;
  • + 10% Reduction in Recharge Time;
  • +250 Mana;
  • UNIQUE Passive - Arcane Blade: after using an ability, the next basic attack deals 75% of base Attack Damage (+ 50% Ability Power) as additional Magic Damage to contact (1.5s cooldown).
Lich's Doom works very well with the Brillim passive! to increase DPS. As Zoe is an auto-attack champion you will take advantage of this item.

Sorcerer's Shoes

Cost: 1100 (800)
  • +18 Magic Penetration;
  • UNIQUE Passive - Improved Movement: +45 Movement Speed.
They are clearly the best boots for Zoe, as they increase Magic Penetration. However, you can use other boots like the Tabi Ninja (30 Armor) to survive attacks by assassins like Zed or Talon.


Cost: 2900 (665)
  • +100 Ability Power;
  • +400 Mana;
  • UNIQUE Liability: + 20% Reduction in Recharge Time;
  • UNIQUE Passive: dealing magic damage to champions with less than 35% health inflicts Painful Wounds for 8 seconds;
  • UNIQUE Passive: kills and assists restore 20% of your maximum Mana.
The Morellonomicon is a very popular item among Wizards for the reduction of cooldown and the large increase in Mana. Indispensable for Zoe.

Void Staff

Cost: 2650 (1365)
  • +80 Ability Power;
  • UNIQUE Passive: + 40% Magic Penetration.
The Void Staff is a very useful item for detonating the high Magic Resistance that enemies have at this point in the battle.

Final Items

Rabadon's Deathcap

Cost: 3800 (1265)
  • +120 Ability Power;
  • UNIQUE Passive: increases Ability Power by 35%.
It is a very expensive item and, therefore, was left out of Core Items. But if you think you need more Ability Power, you can replace the Void Staff with this potent item.

Luden's Echo

Cost: 3200 (1100)
  • +100 Ability Power;
  • + 10% Movement Speed;
  • UNIQUE Passive - Echo: receives charges when moving or conjuring. With 100 charges, the next ability that hits and deals damage consumes all charges to deal 100 (+ 10% Ability Power) additional Magic Damage to up to 4 targets on contact.
Luden's Echo is a cheaper item than Rabadon's Deathcap and offers almost the same Ability Power. Buy if you are losing the battle.

Zhonya's paradox

Cost: 3900 (1000)
  • +100 Ability Power;
  • +60 Armor;
  • + 10% Reduction in Recharge Time;
  • UNIQUE Active - Stasis: the Champion becomes invulnerable and unattainable for 2.5 seconds, but is unable to move, attack, cast skills or use items during this period (120s cooldown).
The Zhonya Paradox is an item to reinforce Armor. It will be very useful to survive in the middle route.

Banshee's Veil

Cost: 3000 (800)
  • +70 Ability Power;
  • +60 Magic Resist;
  • + 10% Reduction in Recharge Time;
  • UNIQUE Passive: Gives a Spell Shield that blocks the next enemy ability. The shield is reset if no damage is taken from enemy champions for 40 seconds.
You must purchase the Banshee Veil if you are facing enemies with high magic damage.

Liandry's torment

Cost: 3100 (750)
  • +80 Ability Power;
  • +300 Life;
  • UNIQUE Passive - Eyes of Pain: +15 Magic Penetration;
  • UNIQUE Passive: Abilities incinerate enemies for 3 seconds, dealing an additional Magic Damage equal to 2% of your current Life per second. Fire damage is doubled against weakly moving units.
This item is a good alternative to Luden's Echo, increasing its damage well thanks to Magic Penetration. This may be the last item in the build for the end of the battle.
