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.
My build for Zilean, you guys may think WTH is he thinking, but plz try it before giving me -1. Rate and judge people! I'd like feedback, positive or negative
First to start off, ill explain why AD/AS Zilean. First of all he has a whopping 600 range! This means you can outrange about everyone while still doing serious damage.
Second, you already have your bombs which do a great amount of dmg early game when they get the balls to come close. this way you can punish them for touching YOUR minions.
you will need to keep your enemies away from last hitting which shouldnt be too hard with this build.
Ok so when in the lobby you'll want to ask your teammates for solo mid. What most people dont know is that Zilean is a great harasser with his slow and his BOMBS! If you do get mid that's great! but it also doesnt kill you when you dont get it so know your place.
if you dont end up in mid you can try to get FB if you have a good stun or snare with you.
Plus your bombs do AoE dmg so the more enemies the more dmg!
Now when you do get solo mid that's great! You'll want to start of with boots to gain the early speed advantage so you can immediatly start spamming bombs and hitting them with normal attacks without getting hit at all. When you drop him to about 1/3 of his hp its time to try and gank him! Best done at lvl 4 cuz you'll have to slight speed boost to surprise him. Just Speed boost, Bomb, Rewind , Bomb, hit, hit and Speed boost out. With this he should be dead because there's also the extremely high crit chance from your runes with this. If you dont get him, just use your hp pot and you will still be dominating the lane. Believe me, He WILL be scared of you now. When you hit lvl 6 its time to start TOWERDIVING! Yeah that's right, Zilean is a great towerdiver with his ulti, so just get in there and gank that basterd. Now whether you do or do not kill him you go back to base and buy at least the Emblem of valour, if you can buy more the better but at least that one item. with this you'll have enough life steal and hp regen to be constantly harassing without having your own HP damaged at all. try to get every champion hit you can cuz theres such a high chance you will crit him which will hurt BAD at those lvls. If you feel like youre up to it you can buy your Boots earlier so you can start helping other lanes, you will be a great help to them and probably push the tower on both sides which will demoralize the enemy pretty hard. OMG WE ARE GETTING SLAUGHTERED BY AN AS/AD ZILEAN?? yes that's right basterds xD you will get a lot of WTH? and n00b comments from your teammates but ignore it! you know you will slaughter the enemies, especially late game. Late game? YES cuz you will be carrying your whole team. Zilean ****py carry? not al all :P
