Introduction

Please do not criticize. This is a build I've been playing with. The build itself is easy to understand, and works pretty well. Everyone says Xin Zhao requires no skill to play. To me, every character requires techniques to be able to play well. How you play a character determines your game results and how great a character could be.

As Xin, I don't really jungle. It doesn't seem to work. Xin in a lane is quite powerful.

"Xin Zhao needs a lot of attack speed to own" <


What the **** are you on? Xin Zhao with Seals + glyphs + 1 phantom Dancer is enough attack speed.


P.S I made this build for a friend, Kim. So, I don't give a damn if my build sucks to you because you can't play well or whatever. It works well for me.

Items

It is up to you, to figure out which items are necessary for the game. The item purchase order starting from the beginning up till Black Cleaver should be kept that way. Everything after Black Cleaver is up to you.

When you're playing against Maokai/Jarvan/Vlad with tons of HP, get a Madreds' bloodrazor.

Playing against an AP team:
Banshee's veil or w/e, it all depends on you.

Playing against an AD team:
Frozen heart, GA, or Thornmail works fine.

Farming

Early Game:
Always last hit: Keeps your lane from being pushed <---- why?
Because there will be teams that would take advantage of that. They will use that against you. It's called "deny" or "zoning." They will try to keep you from being able to farm, and if your minions are pushed to where you're afraid to attack, opponents will end up leveling faster than you.

Mid Game:
Play a little more offensive if you need to because with BC and lantern, you're OP.
Losing: Stack survival items immediately and drop wards a lot more often.
Winning: Don't be cocky. Stay with your team and push the lanes when the chances get to you. Dragon control will also keep your team from being gold deprived.

Late Game:
Survival <---- Main thing
Buy items that would keep you alive.
Xin Zhao with BC, Lantern, Phantom Dancer, and Madreds is already enough damage.

Recommended items:
Frozen Heart
Guardian Angel
Thornmail
Banshee's veil
Etc...
