Hey all,

Zilean is the hero I play the most, and since the latest patches to items, I've been experimenting with new builds. Here is what I was using

1. Archangel's Staff
2. boots of mobility
3. Frozen heart
4. Railai's Scepter
5. Other items depending on the game

Lately, I've been switching up sorc shoes for the boots of mobility, and deathfire grasp for the frozen heart.

What builds have you been using with Zilean?

Another interesting, and useful, build is:
Chalice
Stark's
Boots of Mobility
Frozen Heart
G. Angel
???

Sum. Spells:
Heal/Clarity/Exhaust/Ignite, to better help your early game/Cleanse

Everything else isn't necessary on Zilean.

An obvious non-AP build. It lacks 'til mid-game, depending on game, where it starts proving evident when you're not only beefy, but able to both haste and slow two different players, assuring absolution in a gank. More attack speed, and even things like Tiamat, are good in conjunction with stark's, freeing up someone on your team from getting it, and giving you particularly good ranged harassment.

Just focus on TW and Rewind, then Chrono. (making this very effective much, much earlier.) You lose the early game harassment from 'Bomb, but you gain superior survivability, and insane movement, spell spam and team support.

I just tried that build and it works great if your teammates are decent.

as far as summoning spells, I always go cleans/clairvoyance.

Depends on your team makeup and how well you are doing. Some suggestions are

banshee's veil
guardian angel
abyssal scepter
zhonya's ring

basically whatever you need at that point. It's very flexible.
