Will not be written for a while. I just saw the #1 zilean guide, and I think you guys deserve a real ap zilean mid guide.

http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/zilean-tic-tac-tic-tac-boom-updated-2-oct-2012-82644

HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!

Anyways, I love zilean and have been playing him for years. I got interested back when Alex Ich started rocking him, showing me he still has a place in the meta.

What are your thoughts on AP zilean mid? I think he has major downsides, but he has some unique gameplay mechanics that give him HUGE UPSIDES. Basically, what are you thoughts in Zilean mid?

There was a reason i said Zilean in your thread ^^

I think he turns into a support-type kind of guy later. He's also f**king annoying as hell.

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

But Zilean such an awesome supportm why go ap mid :(


Zilean can't really carry, he's more of a utility champion, wich means you'd need an AP top or jungler. Either that or I've never seen a decent AP zilean. Probably a bit of both.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

Really strong in lane. Cant carry as his ult relies on having a good AD carry on your team.

Hmm. I think you guys don't value the mages that start as ap carries and devolve into supports. There are many more than you think, and they definitely fill a niche that other mids cannot occupy. Karma, Morgana, and zilean all gradually lose their killing potential as the game progresses, but their utility never decreases.

Ap zilean mid has possibly the most dominant early game of any ap mid in the game. He is practically gauranteed a kill at level 3, or level 5 at the latest. His burst at level 9 is second to none. It's true you're slightly team reliant as the game goes on, which is why I would not necessarily recommend him in solo queue, except under certain circumstances:

1. You play a ****load of ap zilean mid
2. Your opponents pick someone that you can crush mid (gragas, karthus, morgana, a few others)

He's definitely underrated, and I run him often in ranked teams when I'm looking to mix it up.
