Hello Community,

This Guide expresses my opinion and changes to the Guide of Siv HD called What would AP Xin Zhao do. I changed it because i saw the incredible weak early game of him and wanted to change something. I get pissed when i get in midgame with 0/7/1 and a bad farm. So i had an idea:

I make AP Xin Zhao that strong in early that the enemy will ragequit and sit in the corner of his room , crying like a little b*tch

So my testing began and the result was awesome.

My runes are pretty simple. I got some attackspeed for a better b*tch slapping with my Battle Cry and its amazing heal because of its (0.7 per Ability Power) Ratio. At all i got loads of Ability Power to increase the damage dealt by Battle Cry and Audacious Charge.
Also i took Attack Damage in because it is very viable for him and most people got these runes. Mark of Attack Speed would be awesome ,too.

So what about my masteries ?

I´ve already explained the Attack Speed thing and its epic combined with his Battle Cry and his Three Talon Strike. Spellsword and Nashor's Tooth are strong when combined and gets the sh*t out of AP Xin even when his Spells got cooldown. But what is this thing called cooldown ? His 35 % CDR and his Three Talon Strike will make the 10 seconds cooldown of your Audacious Charge to something about 3 seconds. And it slows 2 seconds for 40% . This makes his chasing easy. Better look at this , Warwick before you think you are a baus!
But lets get back to the main theme. Some HP and MR at lvl 1 are also useful because on lvl 1 you only have a heal and an attack speed buff.
These masteries let you deal some damage with your ad , too. Xin Zhao got very aggressive stats, use it.

I brought Ignite and Flash with me , because it makes you even more mobile and lets you deal tons of damage . Ghost and Exhaust are also viable but i dont favorise it. I think your good enough in chasing playing AP Xin Zhao .

Not lets go to the farming itsself.

I actually said its not easy. I meant he got no awesome Farming Abilities.
If you now think im a tard, i explain you what i mean:
He got his amazing, no cooldown, op damage, Lich Bane procing, Audacious Charge.
But you won't be able to use it all time for farming because it is a very important Gapcloser. So you have to decide, if you can use it right now or not.
But because ur the super awesome AP Xin Zhao nobody will stop you from farming.
Because they are frightened when they see you. I'm not joking !
