Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This isn't your average build on mobafire but an "encyclopedia" on how to counter the champions that you hate so much you quit the game just because they are in the game. I use common sense and experience that some players lack (I KNOW WHO YOU ARE). It is going to be backward alphabetical order. Why? Because I like my ZXY's better than my ABC's.
This Is A Preview And I Will Try To Make A Guide For Countering A Single Champion Every Day
Look I am just a single person. I cannot correct every single mistake that I make so if you see a mistake please tell me and I will do my best to correct them.
Zilean "Time is Definately Not On Your Side"
*Zilean can block your escape and slay you by placing 2 on/next to you do not become overconfident and make sure you have an evasive maneuver in case something goes wrong.
*Zilean can set up wards and place also blocking your escape. **NOTE** If Zilean places a on a ward, the bomb can only be seen by Zilean and his allies so if you see him making a casting motion but the bomb doesn't turn up and he uses rewind for no reason, you better take your chances with lady luck and chose to either continue running or chose a different path!
*If Zilean places a bomb on a target who died after, the bomb will set off and cause damage around itself. So Zilean can harass buy placing a bomb on a minion just out of his range that is low on HP and near you, last hit it, detonate it, and damage you. So, being around a minion that is low on health when laning against a Zilean is strongly unrecommended.
**It seems if you use ignite right before he uses chronoshift, the health regained by the ability will be decreased by half.
* Note: This information might be wrong but it works with Aniva's Rebirth passive please comment if this information is wrong and I will fix it shortly.
Xin Zhao "You ARE outnumbered, the odds ARE against you"
*Xin Zhao only has one skill that deals magic damage which is Audacious Bomb so it is more beneficial to get high armor items such as Thornmail.
*Xin Zhao has two AoE skills in his arsenal. Make a tank lure him out and make him use both of his skills before ganking him.
*Xin Zhao's counts as spell casts so blinds will not have any effect on the skill but it will still apply hit on effects. Exhaust Will only reduce the damage by 35% not 70% so it is more effective to use Exhaust after the to reduce more damage.
*When Xin Zhao uses his battle cry it is beneficial to use skills or items such as Randuin's Omen that reduce Attack Speed to stop his cooldown reduction sufficiently.
* is immune to knockback effects but is not immune to other disables such as stuns.
