Okey, so we all know that Zilean's passive Heightened Learning gives 8% increased XP gained.
The idea is to use 3x Greater Quintessence of Experience for 6% increased XP and 5% from Awareness . This gives us a total amount of 19% increased XP..
Imagine that we put Zilean mid and let him focus on farming and gaining XP.

The theory is to out scale your opponent mid due to the XP boost, and win your lane because of the level difference and dmg from Time Bomb and pretty much use this advantage through mid game.
Is this possible, Discuss! (Ps, I don't play Zilean)

This could be applied to other champions if Zilean is picked for support, but would require a champion who scales really good with lvl advantage,i.e. high base dmg on spells.

Maybe this could be used as support to ?
Those bombs scales kinda good each lvl, and a earlier Chronoshift could be pretty awesome for some early tower dives. Could probably mess up the enemy bot lane a lot.

He already deals TONS OF DAMAGE early game, so I assume this could be very overwhelming in terms of putting back a mid (and the jungler, since a good zil ***** on ganks)

only problem is once you hit level 18 (which is gonna happen sooner) they become worthless **** runes/mastery point.

I think it'd be fun to run this type of idea on another champion. Say something like a Cho Gath, perhaps, with a Zilean mid. He'll hit a VERY early 6 compared to his lane opponent, and possibly be able to cheese a kill out when he dings.

That't true but then again most masteries and runes are useless by that time already so it's not much different. Unless you build scaling runes then yeah...

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

Or you could do that at all 5 champs for buff, dragon and baron control.

Yeah, but assuming you get more kills, etc from this, you're going to be more farmed by end game.
