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.
Ok so basicly this build may look like a lot and you may be thinking a few things first of all Meji's ASAP before boots you want as many stacks as possible
Secondly you will not have all these items these all are alternitaves if the team has a morgona/rize or any heavy stun go merc treads if not a stun DO NOT go merc treads for this reason
At 100 magic resistance you half the magic dmg done to you so your better off moving faster and getting Banshies & or Guardian angel instead.
You may be thinking "zilian with guardian angel WTF THATS HIS ULT" well hear me out when you are in a team fight or even if you are playing on a team where your 1v2ing because you have a jungler on your team this will come in handy. The magic resist is a nice bonus but being able to run into a team fight and ult someone else on your team basicly makes it a 5v7 or worse. not to mention zilian is GREAT when you have a warwick or shaco or anyone jungling on your team
Send zilian to the solo lane and have him kill creppes DO NOT i repeat DO NOT target players with your bombs it will waste your mana you will lose money and kills in the end. Bomb creeps over and over till you have enough to buy your mejai's + boots and then use teleport to jump back to your lane with the masteries a solo lane and 3 quints you outlevel the other players tremendously fast and youll be able to hit squishys so hard they will go crying to there tower or youll get free early game kills KEEP KILLING MINNIONS you want to get items its your job to kill them they will push your lane and you will get moneys.
Make sure to ALWAYs have golem buff when avalible even if you have to get other teams and ALWAYS KEEP ON ELIXER. when your ulti is on CD and you have golem or elixer or have your archangels maxed just spam rewind till it is recharged. Also whenever you buy and ulti is on cooldown spam rewind at home for obvious resons many people forget.
Never tower dive as zilian it is not worth a kill...
Dethfires is always a last resort item never get it unless you really have to. Make someone else on your team get it if you can.
Basic order of items
Boots of Swiftness OR Mercery Treads (only if alot of stuns)
Elixer Of Briliance (start buying here keep them up the rest of the game unless you get starved of gold)
Banshie's Veil OR Guardian Angel (get banshies if their team has players such as warwick,karthus,ect you want to avoid some of their spells Guardian otherwise)
Archangels Staff OR Deathfires Grasp (deathfires only if your forced i would say against 2+ tanks)
Ryjal's Crystal Scepter (if you get here you should be comboing ppl quickly)
not much more i can say just make sure when you are fighting someone you know what they are capable of (yi cant be slowed for example anivia has an egg )
Good luck leave responses sorry this coulnt be pretty im not taking the time to spell check it or anything its understandable for the most part.
