Tips & Tricks

Zilong’s high base attack speed and combo-granting passive make him a fighter/assassin hybrid that wants to build raw attack and attack speed to initiate fights and assassinate targets.

His ability to displace enemies that are out of position can be a death sentence, and he fits nicely on a team that needs a durable fighter to get team fights going while still dishing out adequate damage.


Zilong opts for defensive boots like Warrior Boots to help him shrug off damage when he throws himself into the middle of a fight. After that, he can build offensive assassin items, helping him dish out pain to enemies he hurls over his shoulders.

Opting for a tank item like Queen’s Wings for the late game can help Zilong survive longer and not get burst down by marksman who have hit their power spikes.


Blinking in with Spear Strike can catch enemies off guard and allow Zilong to quickly follow up with Spear Flip to displace them back towards his teammates. 

Supreme Warrior can be used to chase down fleeing targets, with the immune to slows making it easy for him to catch up and take advantage of the increased Attack Speed.


Zilong can utilize the Assassin Emblem page to gain increased attack and penetration through Brave and Invasion. Bounty Hunter can keep the gold flowing in, granting additional gold on kills.
