Guide to Synergizing Corki and Zilean

Tips for Playing as Corki with Zilean

Phosphorus Bomb can be used to reveal enemy units that might be hiding in a nearby patch of brush.

Corki can continue to attack while using Gatling Gun. Maximizing Gatling Gun is key to mastering Corki.

Valkyrie can be used defensively as well, so try using it for a quick escape.

Advice to Understand How Zilean Will Play

Time Warp is an effective way to enable allies to finish off enemies, or escape from a losing battle.

Chronoshift is a powerful deterrent to attacking your carries, but casting Chronoshift too early in a fight can cause the enemy to switch targets too soon, making it less effective.

You can combine the use of Time Bomb and Rewind to place two Time Bombs on a target quickly. Placing the second bomb will detonate the first and stun all nearby enemies.

Is Corki better when played alongside Zilean?

There is no perfect companion for Corki that will 100% of the time be his best synergy. However, Zilean is a very typical companion for Corki. By being on the same team as Corki, he drops their win rate by -0.5% to 47.0%. This clearly indicates that there is a weak strategic relationship between Corki and Zilean that results in them performing not as well together than without each other.

Zilean has a lower difficulty than Corki. That means Corki players don't need to be cautious when lining up Zilean teammates to play with, as they will have to have a lower level of skill to work well with you.

Playing together, you should expect to witness an overall large increase in your team’s ability to deal magic damage. Together, these two can deal quite a lot of AP type damage.

Conversely, by aligning Corki and Zilean together, you probably will not be providing your team a lot of protection for burst damage. Plan to bring other champs on your team that nullifies this relative hole in their playstyle.

Regardless of the skill of your Zilean ally, you should focus on increasing your income, warding to avoid ambushes, and clearing objectives. If you do this, you should do well anyway.
