Is there really any reason to use Morgana over Zilean?

#1necroix05Posted 3/24/2010 10:30:44 PM
I just unlocked morgana and played 5 games with her... she seems like an inferior zilean. Zilean has a slow, a get out of death card, and a pretty strong nuke that can be spammed quickly. Morgana has a stun, a DoT, and a weak nuke. Why use morg over zil?

Chronoshift >Shield
Rewind + Time Warp is almost as good as snare
And the stun requires you to stay near them.

chronoshift is a nuisance at best but shield is godly support
time warp does different things than snare
it's still a stun and it does aoe damage at the beginning

Chronoshift saves lives more reliably than shield, because shield can't protect against things like Twitch and Panth.
Time warp's slow is sufficient enough to pull off a gank.
Bomb -> Rewind -> Bomb does aoe damage too.

shield is not just about saving life, it's about making your carry ****ing immune to everything and own faces
sufficient or not depends on the situation
it's only aoe if the guy is stupid enough stick to his team, chain has much wider aoe range, slows and then does more damage and stuns

Black Shield not only prevents magic damage, it also prevents added effects like slow or stuns.

Stun, snare, aoe damage.

Zilean has bombs, a speed buff (movement speed, which does NOTHING for team fights, only chasing or escaping), and a self cooldown lowering skill. His ultimate is mediocre at best, because even in teamfights, he won't contribute much, Chronosphere someone, and then the focus moves to another hero. End of fight.

Maybe I just have to use her more. Another thing I like about Zilean is that he's not completely screwed if he's caught in the open against enemies. I'm trying to find a champion I like to use, but Zilean is getting boring, and I was hoping Morgana would be better than she is. Maybe i'll try Fiddlesticks.
