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.
Have you ever felt like you wanted to do something so completely unusual that your brain explodes? Here's the perfect build for you!
I made started to play on west today and i saw Zilean was one of the free champions so i thought why not. When i was like 2 minutes into the game i got the sick idea, why not go AD? My scores were 29-1-19, but of course were my opponent only lvl 1-9 so it explains why it went so good, for an example their Alistar just slammed himself into a tower all the time. The point about this guide is just to be funny, not competetive in any kind of way.
This is a support guide so you can't go solo mid or you can try but i think you're attempts are not gonna be so golden as if you go with random Char nr1. Being patient is also important! This build MIGHT not WORK!
* You will be able to kill fast.
* You will be able to get out of big battles and help your team mates to get out as well.
* You can get early kills with your Q and Ignite.
* You will be able to catch early junglers hopefully. (build 2)
* People will rage at you for trolling their server!
* If unskilled, expect to die lots of times
* If facing assasins, you'll die.
* If facing tryndamere, you'll die (early game)
* If facing Olaf, you'll die (early game)
The most important thing to remember is that your Zilean will out run the most characters and his basic attack will hit hard so this is a great oppurtunity (miss spell) to take your time to gank. Range target are your number 1 Prio, you may have a hard time with AD ranged characters as Sivir and Caitlyn. Make sure to get Vision Wards if opposing team has Evelynn or Twitch. When you gank with this build it is also important to stay away from characters with stun becuase your Zilean will be Squishy.
Om nom nom nom squishy targets!
I always use these runes for some reason, even if i go for a AP character becuase i don't basicly think runes makes a big difference but i think less Critical Hit runes should suit this kind of build. More hp runes also because this build doesn't focus on any kind of HP/MP regeneration.
IMO Masteries are not needed, but they make your champion better in every single way, with this build i suggest a lot of AD and Speed and Vamp stuff.
All you need is 1 Ionian Boots to make your Zilean to use his support abilties as often as possible, 2 Phantom Dancer's for going really fast. 1 Infinity Edge and 2 Bloodthirster just becuase of the damage. You can try to go for a like SEMI-AD build with Warmogs instead of 1 Phantom Dancer or 1 Thirster but that will make your speed or attack drop heavily. If facing a lot of AD-Characters, follow build 2.
Ghost makes you go fast and Ignite makes you kill fast = Solution. Getting early kills is mandatory with this and any other build becuase it gives you so much more time to push and get ahead, when you're ahead, get further ahead all the time!
