A support champion with a burst caster build which is just not viable in anything except perhaps co-op vs bots. Also the layout seems to be written by a kid, not very professional.

This Zilean can be played either in the support role or middle, it's viable for both because you don't actually need to farm minions for the items during the laning phase.

Phormal - Personally I don't understand how you can say that a guide is pretty "solid" yet vote it down. If the guide helps you understand a character better isn't the purpose of the guide accomplished?

TVMan - Yes, it's pretty much an AP Zilean guide however the playstyle is designed so that you do not need minions in order to get items. While this guide can obvious work for an AP Zilean middle as well having an AP Zilean in either the support role or AP role is better then just a Zilean with support items. Being able to do more AoE damage in team fights and revive a teammate with more hitpoints is so valuable it shouldn't even be questioned in my opinion.

Pretty solid guide but the blocks of text with no visual aides is what causes me to vote this down. I found it confusing at times because of this simple mistake. :/

Doran's ring sucks, and Void staff + ionian boots > Deathfire Grasp + Sorcs


The Doran rings are only for early substain in the lane and the Sorc shoes are for more magic pen. since you don't need CD when you already have CDpLVL Glyphs and Rewind. Ionian boots would be pointless and Deathfire Grasp provices a "third" time bomb which blows carries up before they can react with the double time bomb.. but if you understood the guide and the champion you may know that.

Strong Guide. I suggest people READ the whole guide to understand what author means by the build. I use this or variation of this every time I play Zilean. Great job!

Any thoughts about Athene's Unholy Grail? I think both the Cooldown Reduction and the huge Mana Regeneration suit Zilean well, not to mention the 80 AP. Maybe get it instead of Deathfire Grasp. Or even replace the Archangel's Staff since you dont need the huge Mana Pool any more.

Bravo, its a very simple build but you should try to add some BB coding (its alot easier than you would think) it really makes the guilde more appealing

Tested the build a good amount of times on unranked draft games and so far it works great with any ad ranged.(when your giving them full CS)

This build was used when we were down 11-20 and were defending like crazy, then after wards everywhere in our jungle and the barron, we found a few strays and took the game back for the win. Zilean farms like a boss, and does some crazy amount of harras damage with this build.

Thanks for the guide!

+1, but honestly you have to add more color and codeing. It looks bland otherwise. I do prefer supports like this though... hard nukeing sons of *****es... NEW META BRO

I am really looking forward to trying this out!
I feel like Zilean is awesome, and annoyed with me for doing noob things to him.

After fiddling around with a few Zilean guides/builds, I gave this build a test. I had an enjoyable streak of games, and this build is well suited to my particular playing style. A well-thought out build with useful advice, how could I not give it a +1? Congrats on this guide.

+1 good start

dun really agree with your build as you lack power. you dont really need that extra mana. you should also work on your coding. for instructions check out jhoijhoi's guide on making a guide. it'd also be a good idea to turn on require comment to vote. also add a in section on how to counter other champions.

keep up the good work!



The AP it says on the guide is actually wrong. It says it'll have like 390 but within four or so items I have over 500 AP. The build has lots of power actually. My Zilean just took out a Nocturne in two time bombs and my deathfire grasp in a ranked game earlier today.

Thanks for the review!

try coding your guide, If you do not know how look at jhoijhois guide to making a guide!

I do not suggest building Archangel's Staff so early, its AP bonus will not be large because it will take a whiel for Tear of the Goddess to stack up. If you did not know, the stacks convert from tear of the goddess onto archangels!

Also, you have your skilling order wrong, you cannot max your Time Bomb until level 9, so look into that! xD

hope I helped!
good luck

Yeah, I just saw that on the guide. I goofed on that. xD

The reason why I get Archangel first is because since I get tear of the goddess early, I just constantly use rewind and timewarp to get around the map so the mana increase stacks up pretty high. It's worked for me so far, although I did notice that the AP it says on the guide is wrong compared to what I get in game. The extra Archangel staff is mostly just for overkill for endgame stuff.

Thanks for the reviews everyone! I'll look into the coding thing here too!

Very good +1. I agree with thespectral, please make it vote with comments, or this guide may be trolled. I don't want to see that happen.
