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.
Chapter 1 - The Player
Hello, I am Dysisa on EU West and here is my Zilean guide. I consider myself a pro at Zilean since he is my main, and hopefully this guide will show you how to play him.
I believe you should play as a support Zilean going bot with carry, and there are 3 rules you must follow during early game:
#1. Always Bomb Carry
You must put 2 bombs on your carry when you go into fights, this gives your carry extra attack damage and makes him feel like he is fighting for Jihad
You must shout "ALLAH AKBAR" in /all when you get your sacred kills, as this balances the karma. If you do not do this, you will be killed twice.
More importantly, if an enemy Zilean lanes with you, you must say to him "Wallah Bhiah".
If he responds "Wallah Kompis", you have to change lane or else you will lose.
#3. Buy Shurima Desert Zilean
This skin instills fear into your enemy, so buy it and scare them.
Chapter 2 - Level 6
Once you reach Level 6, you have the most powerful ultimate in game (excluding BIG DOG and BIG CROC), and this ultimate requires many different skills to use.
The first is that you must ultimate yourself above all others. This is the most powerful support Zilean build ever made and you are above all others.
Next, if you are surrounded 1v5, ultimate yourself instead of saving it. They may be a group of inbreds who do not realise your power.
Chapter 6 - The End Game
If you have been playing right, you will be able to beat anyone with this guide. As a LoL prodigy, using this build has helped me become strong.
Chapter 93 - Runes
You must take 2 Oral Penetration marks for the end game, and 7 Attack Damage runes for the early game.
To compliment this, only take 5 HP runes to give your opponents a chance.
Next, get some mag res, ablitity power and one cooldown glyph(s)
Finally, buy only 1 ms quint, as you have the E speed boost to make you like:
Chapter Skill Sequence - Skill Sequence
Max Bombs first for the glory of god
Max rewind next to rewind ult cd so you can save yourself more
Max Speed last because 1 ms quint makes you very fast already
Take ultimate at 6, 11 and 16
Chapter ¥ - Summoner Spells
Tier ά male (best)
Clarvoyance - very strong
Flash - rewind reduces cooldown, #1
Tier 2 (almost best)
Clarity - Infinite Bombs
Rally - with mastery this makes bombs 50% stronger
Heal - very good for support zilean
Fortify - protects turrets
Smite - very good with bomb for pushing
Tier 3 (situational)
Teleport - lets you bomb everywhere
Ignite - not very strong, you dont need true damage with bomb damage
Jarvan IV - too high mana costs, huge cooldowns, ultimate bugged, useless champ
Tier 4 (**** tier)
Ghost - useless with move quint
Cleanse - only noobs get CC'd
