My full guide is here

Here is the exported version:

You wanna go for CD reduction on Zilean. At level 18, your rewind should be ~3.5 seconds. That is a time bomb/slow every three seconds. If you didnt have that CD reduction, you would have one every 6-7 seconds. In the long run, you are FAR more useful and powerful w/ CD reduction.

I just started playing zilean and he's my new favorite character. The guide above is what I followed and it works well, but sometimes if your really dominating or your confident you won't die, I'd get mejajis before shroud. Just a little flexibility to the build. Damage output increases alot.

After that, it really depends on what you want. If you are kicking ass and taking names, get Zonyas. If they have lots of stuns, Banshee's Veil. If they have lots of Physical Damage, Thornmail. Just keep in mind that survivability is more important on Zilean than damage.

Here is my build list:

Dorin's Ring
Nashors Tooth
Either Void Staff or Gushingors Blade
Anything else is up to you. Archmages staff works well as does Z-Ring.

My build for Zilean acts as burst damage and carry. With nashors tooth and Gushingors blade I can do a ton of damage and each attack boosts my ability power which makes my bombs stronger.

Stop doing AP Zileans, you can as well go ranged DPS Zilean or AP Ashe :|

If you succeeded as AP Zilean then this means that you just are playing on lower ELO bracket than you should be if you used a nuker.

Zilean = early/mid harass + support


I remember last game i had when i played support Zil some guy told me "wow you play nice but too bad this isn't AP Zilean" i asked him why should i be if support is superior, then he replied "you can get like 600 dmg each 3 seconds in late game".
Srsly 200 dps?! Wow it's outDPSing every decent char doing like 400-500 dmg per crit with 50-80% crit rate and 1,5-2 attacks per second.
NOT
