//// Zilean: The Ultimate AP Support \\\\


Strategy:

Early Game - Never get too aggressive with Zilean during the early stages of a match. YOU WILL DIE. Harass the enemies, but try to keep your Mana in a sustainable range. Don't be afraid to fall back to the tower to defend there. Surviving the early levels is your top priority.

Mid Game - Around the middle levels of the match, after you get Mercury's Treads or Sorcerer's Shoes and Rylai's, you can start ganking. At this point, Zilean is a nuke machine. Try and stay with a few team mates, as Zil's ultimate is better suited to team fights.

Late Game - The transition from mid game antics to late game babysitting is very difficult for some players to grasp. Time Warp and Chronoshift are arguably the two greatest team fight abilities in the game when they are paired with Rewind. Your Time Bomb is still a crucial element to the fight, but a good Zilean always prioritizes saving a team mate with a speed boost or a Chronoshift.

Preferences:

Spells - I prefer Cleanse and Flash for this build, as they allow for maximum survivability. If you prefer a more risky play style, I would suggest Ignite and Flash.

Runes - The Fortitude Quints are my favorite for early-mid game survivability. A 20% HP increase is extremely helpful. As for the Mana/5 runes, they allow for sustainable time spent in the battlefield. The red Magic Penetration runes are crucial in terms of mid game nuking.

Final Inventory:

Mercury's Treads (Preferred) OR Sorcerer's Shoes
Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Rod of Ages
Frozen Heart (vs. Physical) OR Banshee's Veil (vs. Casters)
Guardian Angel
Zhonya's Ring

I hope this helps! Feel free to discuss.
