Zilean - The Time Traveller

In order to understand how this build works effectivly you need to learn 2 keypoints about zilean. First, as Zilean you have 2 skills that can prevent death to your teamates make sure you DO NOT hoard them for yourself (this is a team game) use them according to the situation. Second, this is a defensive game Zilean is very squishy at the start if u are to aggresive it will only end badly. Now that you have an understanding of Zilean lets get started with my build.

This build is intended for 3v3 The Twisted Treeline Scenario. The most important thing starting out is to communicate with your team about getting the first blood gank. As soon as the game starts quickly purchase Amplifying Tome and start heading to the bottom lane with your team. Staying ranged is key here, as soon as there in range use ur bombs to help lower the health of the opposing team and with ur team ensuring the first blood kill. Now the inital gank is where cleanse comes in handy, when the other team uses ignite,stun,snare,taunt what ever they do to try and ensure the kill for them u can use cleanse to keep u from dying and u still have ghost to help u get away if the need arises.

Now that the inital gank is over take top lane solo, using Zileans passive and the utility mastery xp bonus allows for Zilean to gain xp faster than most champions. Harrassing the other teams champion at top lane is crucial preventing them from getting creep kills and getting their health low enough to kill. Once u have enough gold go back and purchase Kage's Lucky Dagger, this will give u an xtra 5 AP and will help you earn gold faster for your builds. Also at this point it will be crucial to purchase Vision Totems to place around so u can help watch the other team and not fall into a gank.

As soon as you reach lvl 3 you will have Time Bomb (2) and Rewind (1) this is what will help u gain them kills early as well as farm waves of creeps. Watching the map for bottom and communicating with ur teamates help u also come in from the top to help gank the bottom lane. More kills = more gold.

As soon as you arrive to lvl 6 is when the game starts to pick up, by this time u will haZilean - The Time Traveller

Once you hit lvl 3 you will have Time Bomb (2) and Rewind (1), Utilize your mana and bombs to lower the health of the opposing teams champ in order to get off your double bomb for the kill. By the time ur lvl 3 u will need to be communicating with ur team in order to strategically assist in bottom lane ganks.

At lvl 6 choose the Chrono Shift skill, this skill cast on urself or an allied champion to revive them if they would have taken a death blow 15 secs after its cast and healing them. By this time in the game you should have Time Bomb (3), Rewind (1), Time Warp (1) and now Chrono Shift (1). Once you hit lvl 6 try look for oppurtunities to gank the other teams champs. I find the best combo to use for this is Bomb, Rewind, Bomb, Time Warp, Bomb this will slow the other teams champ and strike them with 3 bombs use ghost to chase them down for the kill.

The purpose of this build is to help u harrass and get kills and help with ganks by being able to purchase fast items that give both health and Ap as well as gold boosts for the more expensive builds.

NOTE: This is a baseline build depending on the opposing champs will determine if i can strictly go this build or change it up. EXAMPLE(If opposing team is using like Karthus, etc I will change out Hunting Guise for Banshee's Veil.
