Zilean The Supreme Toplane (WIP)
Your votes and comments encourage our guide authors to continue
creating helpful guides for the League of Legends community.
I chose to make this guide because Zilean is now one of my favorite champions due to me watching the "Zileans Got Swag" video on YouTube found here.
I hope you enjoy the build and guide as much as i enjoyed making it. :D
Now with that out of the way you can see why Zilean is "The Supreme Toplane".
With Zilean top you can really harass the enemy since Top lanes are fighters (most of the time). So with them being fighters they will have no ranged to get to you and you can really wreak havoc on them with your bombs and mobility.
High damage output entire game
Put enemy team to shame with last hit bombs
Annoying to play against
Easy to play once you get the feel of his kit
Useful in teamfights (Tons of AoE and a Revive)
He has an epic beard.
Squishy early game
Mana hungry if not distributed right
If they gank without wards you have no getting away.
Starting out you should choose one of the 3 starter kits, all of them work and i use them depending on who i am laning against. So either of the three starts will work depending on how you plan on playing Zilean.
