Beginner Zilean Support Guide (S11) (Updated)

Hi, I am LIGHTBULB (OP.GG), a Diamond 4 support Zilean. I was a Plat 3 jungle main until about May or June of this year, but I started a challenge with a friend where we would level an account from 0-30, and whatever skin shard we got first we would solo queue with that champion and see how high we could climb. I got Sugar Rush Zilean, and started my climb. I instantly fell in love with Zilean's kit, and I have learned a lot in my climb which I hope to share in this guide.
What makes Zilean so good?
Zilean is, in my opinion, the most undervalued champ in the game. I myself personally thought that Zilean was one of the worst champs in the game before I started playing him. However, Zilean is, without a doubt, one of the best supports in the game to main right now. His insane utility and game-breaking ult make his kit extremely strong, but since he is low pick rate people do not realize just how good he is. I personally do not think Zilean should ever be built for damage; there are better options for this. His utility is what makes him so strong. He will almost never be banned, so he is, in my opinion, the best support to 1 trick hands down
Thanks for reading!
Thank you for reading this guide, I hope that you learned a thing or two about Zilean. There are many more things that a better player could tell you about the champ, but I just wanted to share what I have learned so far. I will keep this guide updated, but unless Zilean gets changed (which very rarely happens) or his items get changed, the guide should remain the same.
