Hello, my name is Saint and I like to play League of Legends with the underused champs in odd places.

This build may sound like a troll BUT IT IS NOT. Zilean jungle DOES work it just takes a bit of getting used too and practice.

Early game jungle is very difficult for zilean untill you get some better items, do not be discouraged and recall if you need to.

Jungling Route

Firstly you need a very good pull, two or maybe even three allies can help you pull Wolves, then blue which will make the rest of the jungle 10x easier for you.

Blue Buff
Red Buff
<Gank> or Wraiths if no ganks are available
<Gank> or Wolves if still no ganks available
First Recall

After this you should be level four or level five depending on what you did. You can now carry on to to play out the game as a standard jungler.

Ganking with Zilean is possibly the easiest gank in the world.

< Make your way to the targeted lane
< Hide in a bush and await your victim
< When a ganking opportunity arises, JUMP THEM.
< Use your Q on the enemy and then your E, then hit W, Q them again and use your E to speed yourself, or an ally up. Gratz! You got a kill/assist.

If your ally is about to die don't be afraid to use your ult on them. The worst thing that happens is you waste your ult. If you don't use it you risk feeding their lane and making them very mad

Zhonya's Hourglass

If you're definitely going to die in a 1v1 situation then you can Q W Q to double bomb somebody and then use your Hourglass to save your own life. I've got so many martyrdom kills doing this and it is possibly my favourite way to troll an opponent.

Zhonya's can also be used to save your life without wasting your ult, If you can save your ultimate for a adc then it is definitely worth popping your Zhonyia's

Zilean is a very underrated champ and most players will not know how to counter you properly and will be very ignorant to the early game damage you can pump out with double bombs, use this to you advantage and you will win many games by feeding your lanes early.

I'll see you in the League. <3
