Janna Janna is useless against Zilean as long as you avoid her tornadoes.

SUMMONER SPELLS

Zilean is like all the other supports and should take "flash" + "exhaust".

The alternative is to take "flash" + "ignite" but in this case you must make sure you will play super safe with your adc until you have your ultimate.

DO NEVER USE YOUR EXHAUST TO SLOW ENNEMI CHAMPS IN ORDER TO DOUBLE BOMB, YOU HAVE YOUR "E" FOR THAT

ITEMS

I think you should take "Eye of the Watchers" instead of "Frost queen's claim" because that saves you an item slot (if you take "Frost queen's claim", you have to take "Ruby Sightstone" afterwards)

I also think "Archangel's staff" is better than "Morellonomicon" because taking "Tear of the godess" (750 PO) at the beginning of the game is less expensive than taking "Morellonomicon" (2900 PO).

"Mobility boots" are better because your "e" is not only for you so if you cast it on an ally, you want to still be able to have a decent speed.

ABILITIES

A lot of Zilean players prefer upgrading Zilean's "w" before his "e" ... but I don't.
For me Zilean's power is in his "e" because he can decrease or increase an ennemy's or an ally's speed of 99% (at lv.5) and you want to reach this power spike as quickly as possible.

+ if you upgrade your "w" first, you will have to always land your double bomb because your "e" only decreases an ennemy's spead by 40% at lv.1 (that isn't very much).


If you can't double bomb very well, cast your "e" before your double bomb, it should be easier.

DO NOT CAST YOUR "Q" ALONE BEFORE YOU GET YOUR TEAR. ALWAYS DOUBLE BOMB TO STUN.

IF YOU HAVE THE CHOICE BETWEEN YOU AND AN ALLY ULT THE ALLY(IF HE ISN'T FEEDING)

MASTERIES

"Thunderlord's decree" is an obvious choice on Zilean.

Why do I go 6/18/6 :

A lot of people go 0/18/12 or 12/18/0.

If you go 0/18/12 (which is the best alternative to 6/18/6) you take "Insight".

If you go 12/18/0 (which is terrible) you take ... useless stuff ("bounty hunter, double edged sword and battle trance aren't good with Zilean).

For me, in the Ferocity tree, Expose weakness is very good with Zilean but what comes after isn't so I prefer taking 6 points in the Resolve tree.

CONCLUSION

Zilean is one of the best supports (or the best) of League of Legends.

His role? Make his ennemies' days terrible.

HAVE FUN
