Zilean Build Guide by the chaos bringer 00

So if people say this, it should be correct, right?
There is only one possible way to play Zilean and this is the way I explain in this guide!
Q: Timebomb does too little damage with this build and drains too much mana.
W: Helps you have abilities a lot faster which is stupid since your skills are stupid.
E: Helps you run faster and throw more machine pieces to enemy. (only possible good thing)
R: It is ********. The guy you targeted is gonna die either way.
If teammate going to die. Never ult them. If they die, it is because they want to. They want to leave this world of misery and flamers.
Important note: This only works in ranked games.
His masteries are usually a typical 21-0-9 build.
His runes are:
Magic Penetration Marks
Scaling HP Seals
Magic Resist Glyphs
Ability Power Quints
As zilean, you want to have your abilities back on as fast as possible so you're going for a heavy CDR build. Optimal build is:
Ionian Boots of Lucidity
Athene's Unholy Grail
If you read the whole guide and then this chapter too, you should give Zilean a try, if you haven't yet. He might seem weak, useless and trollish, but you will be surprised to find out the opposite. Don't let the meta heads and especially those who follow meta and popular stuff without even understanding why they are popular and strong, affect your playstyle.
