Threats & Synergies
This Guy, especially if he's good, will ruin your day if you're not prepared. He has all the stuff that ruins Zil into one champ. Don't bother trying to stun him if he's near your minions, and don't stray far from the tower, or he will make your screen black and white in seconds. (Depends of skill of Yas)
Her Snare has a stupid hitbox, and with zil being one of the squishiest champs, you're not going to have fun. Just play cautious and avoid her snare, and you should be good.
Build Booties first, and with enough skill and luck, you should be able to defeat him. Just poke him until you can secure the kill, dodge his spells with your e, and you should be in business. Avoid long engagements with him.
She will mess you up past level six, so poke her down and be next to tower when she gets ult. Just bide your time and try not to feed.
He's Pretty Easy To poke down early game. (Besides His sustain)Just don't let him get very close to you. Fun Fact: if your bomb lands on him, it will do damage to him even if he is in his blood pool.
If you are mindful of the charm, and ult when needed, this should be an easier matchup than many would think.
You outpoke him in many ways, just doge his q, and stay out of his auto range, and you'll do great.
Pretty much the same as TF, just mind the massive stun.
His voidlings do a lot of damage to you, and his other abilities are crippling. Staying on max range q is recommended.
Same as Akali, except she can mess you up even earlier. Max raaaaaaange q.
W: resets cooldowns (Besides ult) by ten seconds.
IMPORTANT: If you use Q, than use W to refresh it, and have 2 bombs on someone at once, it stuns in an area.
E: you can speed yourself or an ally up, or slow an enemy down.
R: Puts a rune over your head that lets you come back to life if killed with it on you. Understanding it's duration is important.
Basic Combo: Q-W-Q-AutoAttack: This gets your thunderlords proc off and does some good damage.
Ensured Combo: E(on enemy)-Q-W-Q-AutoAttack: The E Helps you land the combo.
Full Combo: E(on enemy)-Q-W-Q-AutoAttack-E(on enemy)-Ignite(if possible): This is meant to kill. Use it only in lane or for 1v1's. Auto to finish them off if you don't kill them with this.
