Zilean

the Chronokeeper

Support Mage

Once a powerful Icathian mage, Zilean became obsessed with the passage of time after witnessing his homeland's destruction by the Void. Unable to spare even a minute to grieve the catastrophic loss, he called upon ancient temporal magic to divine all possible outcomes. Having become functionally immortal, Zilean now drifts through the past, present, and future, bending and warping the flow of time around him, always searching for that elusive moment that will turn back the clock and undo Icathia's destruction.

Time in a Bottle (ZileanP)

Zilean stores time as Experience.

When he has enough Experience to finish an ally's level, he can right-click them to impart it. Zilean receives as much Experience as he gives. Cannot be used in combat.

Time Bomb (ZileanQ)

Tosses a bomb to target area that sticks to units that come near it (prioritizes Champions). It detonates after 3 seconds, dealing area of effect damage. If a Time Bomb is detonated early by another Time Bomb, it also stuns enemies.

Rewind (ZileanW)

Zilean can prepare himself for future confrontations, reducing the cooldowns of his other basic abilities.

Time Warp (ZileanE)

Zilean bends time around any unit, decreasing an enemy's Movement Speed or increasing an ally's Movement Speed for a short time.

Chronoshift (ZileanR)

Zilean places a protective time rune on an allied champion, teleporting the champion back in time if they take lethal damage.

Zilean Counter Tips

If you're able to match Zilean's speed, it can sometimes be beneficial to wait until his ultimate has faded before landing the killing blow.

Zilean is fragile if a team focuses on him, but otherwise he's very difficult to kill. Commit to killing him as a team.
