Zilean is a very interesting support champion that does a lot of things extremely well. He is currently a bit under the radar, but is a powerful pick if played correctly, and that's what I'm here to help you do! Pros: -Global Experience passive helps out your team signficantly -Strong early game harass -High (600) ranged auto attack -Super long and powerful Slow/Speed-up -Revive ult is game changing Cons: -Super damn squishy -loses most all in fights bot lane -no hard CC -no heal

Zilean has a fairly weak early laning phase. You basically are trying to harass down the enemy's with your long range Auto-attack and long range Bombs as much as possible without dieing yourself. Against most lanes that are common right now Zilean has a lot of trouble, as he does not do enough harass to make up for his lack of sustain and squishyness. I recommend doing as much as possible, but avoid dieing at all costs. Zileans mains strength early game is that he makes your lane get to level 6 much earlier than the enemy laners, and he can use this small window to zone your enemies. If you die you lose this benefit as they will catch up in experience. He also makes you level up a few creeps before the enemy each time, watch your experience bar and use this to your advantage. Being level 2 first gives you a small window to bully the enemies off the creeps before they catch up.

once you have [img=items/chalice-of-harmony.png] and [img=items/talisman-of-ascension.png] you should have enough mana to sustain yourself. Use your [img=skills/zilean/e.png] + [img=skills/zilean/w.png] to move yourself around the map and ward up. You should be mostly sticking with your ADC, but if you have a strong ganking jungle you could wander around with him and speeding him up to make plays.

Once you are level 18 you have gained PERMA SLOW AND PERMA SPEED UP. SPAM THAT SHIT MAN.

Stay in the back, your bombs don't do enough damage to risk your own squishy life. Slow whatever melee is attempting to kill your carries. If you cannot slow an enemy you should be speeding up your ADC (or your most fed carry) so that he can kite the enemies. Use your bombs on whoever is closest, don't worry about hitting their squishy members too much. It is generally optimal to just throw the bombs them on the divers of your team so that they can bring the bombs to the back line. If your team is ahead and looking to initiate, speed up the initiate on your team so they can catch the enemy team. Use your [img=skills/zilean/r.png] on the FIRST ally to die, basically no matter what. The only time you should be saving it is if you have one EXTREMELY fed ally who needs to be kept alive at all costs.

If you are looking for an extremely under-utilized support champion to add to your pool of champions, look no further, Zilean is a great pick up. ASK ME QUESTIONS. Twitter @LemonNNation and facebook.com/LemonNationLol
