Ability Details

Additional Information:

  • Summoners with experience gain pop-ups should note that the numbers displayed reflect the pre-modified experience earned.

RANGE: 700
COST: 70 / 85 / 100 / 115 / 130 mana
Time Bomb

Active: Zilean places a ticking time bomb on any unit, allied or enemy, which detonates after 4 seconds, dealing magic damage in a 330-unit area. Chronoblast slows an enemy champion or increases an ally champion's movement speed by 55% during the countdown. Bombs will detonate immediately if the holder dies or if another bomb is placed on them.

  • Magic Damage: 45 / 90 / 145 / 200 / 260 (+ 40% AP)
Ability Details
Time Bomb can target a single unit, either ally or enemy.

An exploding bomb is an area of effect at its last location.

Additional Information:

  • Chronoblast will cancel an enemy champions recall.
  • If a bomb is placed on a stealthed ally, it will not be visible to the enemy team.
  • A ticking bomb will draw turret aggro.
  • A ticking bomb does not grant an assist if the target dies before it explodes.
  • A bomb will detonate an enemy Zilean's bomb when placed on the same unit. This does not prevent the enemy's damage.
  • If a bomb carrier takes lethal damage and triggers a revive effect, such as Chronoshift Chronoshift or Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel, the bomb is removed like all other debuffs.
  • A ticking bomb will still detonate even if the carrier becomes untargetable. The carrier will still take damage unless they are also invulnerable, through effects such as Frozen Tomb Frozen Tomb or Zhonya's Hourglass item Zhonya's Hourglass.
  • Various champions that have abilities that make them untargetable can prevent the damage from Chronoblast, such as Vladimir, Elise, Fizz, Lissandra, Shaco, Fiora, Zed, Master Yi, or Maokai.

COST: 50 mana
COOLDOWN: 18 / 15 / 12 / 9 / 6

Active: Zilean reduces the cooldowns of all of his other abilities by 10 seconds. Reduces nearby allies cooldowns by 2 seconds.

Ability Details
Rewind is a self-targeted ability.

Additional Information:

Time Warp
RANGE: 500
COST: 80 mana
Time Warp

Active: Zilean bends time in area of effect. If an enemy tries to leave Time Warp, it will blink to the center of the area instead.

  • Duration: 2.5 / 3.25 / 4 / 4.75 / 5.5
Ability Details

RANGE: 900
COST: 125 / 150 / 175 mana

Active: Zilean places a protective time rune on an allied champion for 7 seconds. If the target takes lethal damage during that time, they will be placed in stasis - making them untargetable and invulnerable. After 2 seconds, the target is revived with a set amount of health.

  • Health Regained: 600 / 850 / 1100 (+ 200% AP)
Ability Details
Chronoshift can target a single allied champion.

Additional Information:


  • As Riot states, global range is just not desirable. Based myself on Janna's new innate, so Zilean should be a more dedicated support
  • Moved his current Q and E to an single ability and reduced ap scaling, making Chronoblast an utility spell rather than pure damage
  • I thinked about making Rewind more like Taric's Imbue (reduces both targeted ally and Zilean's cooldowns, with a higher reduction if Zilean targets himself), but it seemed unnecessary. What do you think?
  • About Time Warp, I tried to make it looks like what Zilean did to Crystal Scar. The idea is a moderate area of effect where the enemy can do anything but escaping - dashes or even Flash will trigger the blink effect. This can be properly used by skilled players to juke or dodge incoming skillshots.
  • His ultimate seems perfect, and actually is the sole good reason to play him. It remains unchanged.
