Introduction

This is a interesting build i came up with for a attack speed and ability power Xin Zhao. Xin Zhao with this build will destroy people and be hard to kill in late game. Hope you try it and have fun.

Pros / Cons

Pros
[*] Good top lane
[*] W gives decent sustain in lane early game
[*] W late game lets him heal for 200-300 every third hit
[*] Fun character

Cons
[*] Not as good early game
[*] Item dependent



Guide Top

Masteries and Runes

[*] For Masteries I chose the generic AP build but i put points into attack speed and 4 in defense. the defense helps since he has to get up close to do damage and the attack speed just goes with the build, you may want to put the point in Summoner's Wrath into something else if you don't pick Ghost and Exhaust




[*] For Runes I chose Flat AP Quints to help early game, AP Per-Lv Glyphs,
Magic Pen Marks, and Attack Speed Seals

Items

[*] The Cheat Sheet items work very well for me, but you can build other items from preference or depending on what the enemy builds.

[*] I put Mercury's Treads and Sorcerer's Shoes because both are good choices. you may also consider Berserker's Greaves for the attack speed.

[*] Void Staff: if 2 or more enemies start building MR you may want to build this.

[*] if you don't want to build a Hextech Gunblade you may want to build a Will of the Ancients life steal and spell vamp works well with Battle Cry to help you heal very fast.

[*] If you seem to get focused a lot or die very fast you may consider buying a Guardian Angel,
Thornmail, Force of Nature, or other defensive items depending on the enemy team.

Summoner Spells

For summoner spells the best ones to pick in my opinion are Ghost, Exhaust, Flash, and/or Ignite

I picked Ghost and Exhaust because of Summoner's Wrath




Guide Top

Skill Sequence

for skills make sure you get Q W E in the beginning, then level Audacious Charge first,
Battle Cry second and Three Talon Strike last, getting Crescent Sweep every time you can.




Guide Top

Fighting

[*] When attacking initiate with Audacious Charge (Preferably after your tank if its a team fight)and pop your Battle Cry and Three Talon Strike simultaneously. Aim for squishy carries first and if they run pop your Exhaust and/or charge them.

[*] If your enemies are clumped up try and Audacious Charge on to them because it does Aoe on impact location.

[*] When using your Crescent Sweep try to use it when the enemies are clumped up or you know your gonna need it to get a kill on a enemy laner.

Summary

This is my first guide and i'd love if you gave me constructive criticism and voted up. please dont vote down if you think its lame at first sight, please try the build.
