More Zilean Runes


Hello MobaFire,

My name is Hotrod08(NA), and I am a Diamond IV Support player coming out of Season 7. Zilean was one of the first champions I ever played in the game (mid and support).

While I don't pick Zilean very often as a Support champion, he fills a very clear niche that is very fun to mess with and with the right team comp, can be very deadly.

I have also made a YouTube video going over the choice of runes, as well as some game play with it. If you enjoy the video, I would absolutely appreciate any subscriptions to my channel. If you you have any questions you would like answered, either ask here or on the comments in the video and I will do my best to reply to it fast!

Goal of the Build

Our goal with this build is to provide Zilean with as much CDR as possible on all of his abilities as well as give Zilean as much poke as possible within the laning phase. Finally, you have almost 0 sustain built-in, so we will give Zilean Biscuits Delivery for that added sustain and mana.

Our items are based around giving Zilean the ability to spam his abilities later in the game as well as giving as much team utility as possible.
