You may be thinking to yourself, "Why would I play Zilean? He's a lesser support, there are so many other champs I could pick!"
And you're right, He's not the best support... But we aren't playing him Support! He's your AP Mid Lane!
Q: Muffin Bomb! (Time Bomb)
This is your poke, this is your pride, this is your muffin.
You throw some time bombs on the opponent's head, pop your W, then Throw another on top the other! It's good poke, it'll harass the enemy with some decent range, and it's your main source of Damage.
W: Chaos Control! (Rewind)
This is what will keep you going, this is your bread and butter, this is the reason you wake up in the morning.
This ability reduces the cool-downs of your other Abilities by 10 seconds, it'll keep you moving and throwing muffins all day!
E: Ghost and Exhaust Summoner spells in one! (Time Warp)
This is the reason I don't recommend any form of Boots. It'll speed an Ally (Or, you) up for a few seconds, and using your W will keep you running at Sonic Speed!
Also, if you cast it on an opponent, it'll slow them down, no escaping the muffins now!
Ult: Guardian Angel (Chronoshift)
This is a pretty great Ult. You cast it, and if the person you casted it on dies within 5 seconds, they're brought back with a large amount of heath, especially late game.
You can also cast in on yourself! Ganked and dying? Cast it on you, they think your dead, then you E yourself and get the heck out!
Passive: Feed your Team (Time in a Bottle)
With this, you click on a teammate out of combat and if you have enough XP saved up, you level them up! Oh man, your Jungler is underleveled? Boost him up! Teammate off to a bad start? Boost him up! Team being Toxic? Keep it to yourself, you can't use it, but they can't then either!
Pros / Cons
- He's really fun to play
- Nobody expects a mid AP destroyer from him
- Is very effective against most other ranged Champs
- Can still Support some while being awesome
- Is hard to get used to
- You'll get mad fun of for picking Zilean
- Champs that are good at getting close can be a huge threat
Farming is pretty easy and simple, just dou Time Bomb when they're low, scoop up the minion kills.
