Threats to Zilean with this build

Threat Champion Notes
1
Janna Janna is useless against Zilean as long as you avoid her tornadoes. Her shield will block some of your dmg but as long as you land the stuns everything will be fine.

SUMMONER SPELLS

Zilean is like all the other supports and should take "flash" + "exhaust".

The alternative is to take "flash" + "ignite" but in this case you must make sure you will play super safe with your adc until you have your ultimate.

DO NEVER USE YOUR EXHAUST TO SLOW ENNEMI CHAMPS IN ORDER TO DOUBLE BOMB, YOU HAVE YOUR "E" FOR THAT

ITEMS

I think you should take "Eye of the Watchers" instead of "Frost queen's claim" because that saves you an item slot (if you take "Frost queen's claim", you have to take "Ruby Sightstone" afterwards)

I also think "Archangel's staff" is better than "Morellonomicon" because taking "Tear of the godess" (750 PO) at the beginning of the game is less expensive than taking "Morellonomicon" (2900 PO).

"Mobility boots" are better because your "e" is not only for you so if you cast it on an ally, you want to still be able to have a decent speed.

Zilean's kit is very good to apply CC to ennemy champions this is why "Ardent Censor" works really well with Zilean if you take "Stoneborn Pact". The heal your adc will gain from this mastery will count for the "Ardent Censor"'s passive.

ABILITIES

A lot of Zilean players prefer upgrading Zilean's "w" before his "e" ... but I don't.
For me Zilean's power is in his "e" because he can decrease or increase an ennemy's or an ally's speed of 99% (at lv.5) and you want to reach this power spike as quickly as possible.

+ if you upgrade your "w" first, you will have to always land your double bomb because your "e" only decreases an ennemy's spead by 40% at lv.1 (that isn't alot).

If you can't double bomb very well, cast your "e" before your double bomb, it should be easier.


DO NOT CAST YOUR "Q" ALONE BEFORE YOU GET YOUR TEAR. ALWAYS DOUBLE BOMB TO STUN.

IF YOU HAVE THE CHOICE BETWEEN YOU AND AN ALLY ULT THE ALLY(IF HE ISN'T FEEDING)

MASTERIES

"Stoneborn Pact" is an obvious choice on Zilean.

Why do I go 0/12/18 :

A lot of people go 0/18/12 or 12/18/0.

As I explained in the ITEMS chapter, Zilean has a very good cc kit. Therefore, I see "Stoneborn Pact" as an obvious choice for Zilean's key mastery : your adc is healed each time you land a double bomb or press e on an ennemy.

PROS / CONS

PROS

- High mobility
- Good slow (99% at lv 5)
- VERY good ult
- corrects your teammates' errors
- short ult cooldown (48sec at lv3) if you follow my build

CONS

- uses a lot of mana (before you get the "Tear of the Godess" especially)
- uses bombs
- can only ult one person at a time

CONCLUSION

Zilean is one of the best supports (or the best) of League of Legends.

His role? Correct your allies mistake by giving them a second life and make the ennemy team rage.
