Teamfight Tactics Set 7.5 Zeri: Best Items and Synergies

Zeri returned to Teamfight Tactics boards as a three-cost unit with Cannoneer and Lagoon traits. Her area-of-effect ability makes her a perfect backline carry.

The traits Riot Games attributed to Zeri in  Teamfight Tactics  are Cannoneer and Lagoon Lagoon is a new trait that grants your units ability power and attack speed in addition to creating a Seastone that grants loot to Lagoon units after a specific amount of casts.

Zeri can act either as the main carry, a secondary carry or to activate her synergies. Her ability fires at the closest enemy or at the enemy that is closest to the centre of the board. The shot explodes on contact, dealing physical damage and creating a laser behind the target that deals magic damage to all enemies hit. The number of damage increases with the number of stars.

Zeri needs space to activate his laser, particularly to target the enemy carry from the backline. Place her in one of the corners and add tanky defences around her along with another Cannoneer like Aphelios or Graves  and you will have a very strong board.

Zeri wants attack damage and mana items to get the most out of her ability. Zeri's ideal AD items are similar to what players usually put on other cannoneers.

The Lagoon trait in Teamfight Tactics has a twist in its gameplay regarding items. Once activated, the trait creates a Seastone that grants loot as Lagoon units cast abilities over time. Comps with Lagoon are more likely to get more items than other comps and some early-game drop items can speed up this loot.

Guinsoo’s Rageblade grants unlimited attack speed stacks, perfect for a backline carry that needs to stay alive until the end of the round. Spear of Shojin is the ideal item for casters who have more than 40 mana to cast their ability as each attack also restores five additional mana. Statikk Shiv is a solid item that offers both attack speed and mana in its stats.

Alternative items from Set 7.5 that can also work well on Zeri are Infinity Edge, Giant’s Slayer, Runaan’s Hurricane, Statikk Shiv, Hand of Justice, Bloodthirster, and even Hextech Gunblade.
