Hey there i was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions/tips on how to play/build Zilean.

An AP build would be nice as well as a Support build please. Preciate it

I go for innervating locket, and then cd reduction items. Works out well for me. I don't build AP on Zilean at the moment, because cleanse removes the time bomb, so I go for more team support (via cd reduction).

A few tips:
1) If an enemy is getting away, give the speed boost to whatever teammate has a stun/snare/slow, so your team can catch up to them.
2) If your team's carry is going down, put chronoshift on them (try to wait till they get low hp, but don't wait too long, better early than never; worst case, the enemy team will see it and switch targets)
3) If the enemy has low hp and they are tower hugging, or they run everytime you come close, give yourslef speed boost, sprint in and time bomb them, then get out.
4) Enemy towers won't change targets from your creeps to you until your timebomb does damage to the enemy champion, so you can walk in under a creep shield and bomb anyone you like fairly easily.

innervating locket is a joke.. (the heal helps at times, but seems like a waste)
go for tear of the goddess first, then fiendish codex, then complete nashors tooth, then complete archangel's staff. then completely your 40% cooldown with 1 of many items.. Id recommend haunting Guise or something similiar.

If you're the only support then it's semi-useful. I like to use it on Soraka, and I get it on Zilean because there's usually no other healers (it's not much, but as you said it does help).

When I play Zilean I like to use Messiah's build, which is.

Doran's Ring
Chalice
Normal Boots
Rod of Ages
Merc Treads
Frozen Heart
Banshee's Veil

If you have a decent team you should usually do extremely well with this build.

I go:

Tear
Boots 1
Archangel Staff
Upgrade boots
Frozen Heart

If games go longer than that, get Banshee's Veil or Guardian Angel. You will become the most annoying person on your team.
