Zilean generates 2 / 3.5 / 5 / 6 / 12 experience (does not count towards level up) every 5 seconds. Time in a Bottle is on cooldown when the game starts.
When the amount stored is enough to level up an allied champion and Zilean has been out of combat for the last 10 seconds, he can right-click the target ally to initiate a 1 second channel (if interrupted, Time in a Bottle goes on a reduced cooldown)
A successful channel levels up the target and grants Zilean the stored amount as experience of his own.
Active:Zilean places a protective time rune on the target ally champion or himself, lasting for 5 seconds. If the target takes fatal damage during that time, they are put in stasis for 3 seconds and then revived, regaining a set amount of health.
