Zilean counter tips

Laning Against

If you’re hit with a Zilean bomb

ZileanQ

, do not walk in a straight line away from him. Try to out smart and “juke” his secondary bomb through his

ZileanW

so you do not get stunned. Try walking diagonally away or walk forward if possible.

After level 6, Zilean will look to play hyper aggressive in hopes to come out ahead and use his

ChronoShift

. Once he has Ulted himself or his carry, switch your focus and take them down.

Zileans damage does stack up as soon as he starts getting items. One simple

ZileanQ
ZileanW
ZileanQ

combo can deal a ton of damage. Try to dodge the best you can and stay out of the way of dying (bombed) minions so you do not take damage.

Strategy VS

Lock down Zilean in a team fight so he is either forced to waste his

ChronoShift

on himself or not use it at all. This will make the rest of the team fight so much easier.

When Zilean looks to ward objectives like the Baron or the Dragon, try and ambush him. This will either force him to blow Summoner Spells (making it easier to kill him next time) or use his

ChronoShift

on himself.

When Zilean Ults his hyper carry in a team fight, either burst them down so they are taken out of the fight briefly, or leave them be and wait for the

ChronoShift

to decay before executing them.

Power Spikes

Zilean cannot do much at level 1, but is good at level 2 once he has access to double bombs (

ZileanQ
ZileanW

Q).

Zilean will always have increased kill threat and be much harder to lane against once he has unlocked his

ChronoShift

. Try to make him use his

ChronoShift

(and letting it run out) before killing him.

As the game goes on, Zilean will become stronger and stronger and provide a lot for his team. His

ChronoShift

will be on a really short cooldown- so try to play aggressively when it is on cooldown.
