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.
Hey guys,i've been playing zilean a lot recently and i found him so fun!
First of all,you should absolutely mid,why? easy,you can assist both lanes easily and get kills if you play well,also,you can navigate thorugh the map with ease and kill people when they never know it :)
Teleport:With your speed no need,its a waste when other spell benefit you so much
Cleanses: Maybe,if you have a hard time running away from the enemy,it can be helpful,but its pretty useless if you're at the bacl
Smite: Hahahaha,what the ? xD
ClairVoyance: so helpful if you're pro with it
Ignite: helpful to finish off your enemies but most of the time they die from the bombs when they're far
Exhaust: Well,you're not a chaser,and with your ultimate+ speed skill,you don't really need it(most of your allies probably have it)
When you're in the mid lane,try harassing the hero as much as you can,but dont double bomb him,just bomb him until his hp reach a low point,then,rush at him with speed and double bomb him,most of the time,he is dead for sure.
When you reach lvl 6,try spamming your ultimate on you as much as you can,you should easily hurt someone badly and with the mejai,you'll massacre any AD/DPS champion,when your ultimate is in cooldown,spamm rewind as much as you want so every time your team gank,you can revive them,but be careful to your mana pool(try rewinding while in base).A good strategy is to lure the champion to you,make him think he is winning then ulti,the enemy will finish you and try running away,but you can easily shut him down with the low hp he has! p.s : you should've sell the doran's ring at lvl 6
Level 1-12 is where you shine the most,but high level you become a good support and still a very good bomber,if you have about 10-20 stack with the mejai,you should keep it,if you don't,sell it and buy a survivability object(any) by now your bombs should easily do over 600 dmg each!remember to alwys stay behind and look out for your allies health,it'll save your friends countless of times,and win so many battles
Why getting boots so late?
You're basically not a chaser,with your buff it'll easily compensate the boots,chasing an enemy result most of the time to death and your bombs should kill any enemy with low hp and that already ran away :D
Zilean is a support,shouldn't you lane with an ally?
No,no and no,the best way to support your team is to be omnipotent(everywhere) surprising the enemy and saving your team in the whole map will benefit so much late game you can't imagine
Seriously,do not turret dive with your ultimate,it hurts you so much at low level you won't even survive after you ressurect
