Hello, this is my Zilean build. The idea of this build is to create a powerful Zilean early game. With Zilean you must harass early game, shutting down people in lane and supporting your team. Like Karma, Zilean excels in providing support through abilities, balancing cooldown reduction, and AP is key.

For Runes, take Magic Penetration Marks, Mana per/level Seals, Cooldown Reduction per/level Glyphs and lastly, Quintessences of Potency.

1. Magic pen increases damage early game.
2. Mana per/level will be helpful all game.
3. Many people do not like CDR runes per/level and prefer Focus Glyphs, its just a preference.
4. AP quints also provide extra damage, Zilean's Time Bombs scale 90%!

For Masteries I take standard 9/0/21. Make sure to put points into improved Clairvoyance and Flash. Clairvoyance saves lives and boosts map control which helps the team and Flash gets you out of "sticky" situations.

Farming for Zilean is simple. Place a Bomb on a minion, rewind your cooldowns with your "W", place a Bomb on the same minion and BOOM minion wave is gone.
