Hey, this build started off as an experiment in a normal 5 v 5, but i started to use this more because it works very well for me. Most xin zhao players run attack speed and leave themselves squishy so this build is somewhat of a copy build for the usual garen player. ok here we go. start off with the faerie charm and the rejuvenating bead, these items with help keep u in lane because of the decent mana and health regen, along with your passive, tireless warrior, you should be very dominant in lane. Tiamat is key in this build, i know people always say this item is usless but in this case we are not going attack speed so we will rely on the sunfire capes and the tiamat to farm. I usually get boots of swiftness because i prefer movement speed over attack speed. Force of Nature is very important because not only do you shut down the mages on the other team, you get movement speed and lots of health regen( about 10 health a second). Thornmailis there because it gives a good amount of armor and it also helps fight off the mele dps carry champs. Frozen mallet is last because its a good item to bulk up your health and the slow is nice. the reason i run it last is because with audacious charge, you dont need the slow. You dont really need frozen mallets slow as much as the health and attack damage, but it is still a very good item.
Pros:

  • Very durable champion
  • Can easily Chase
  • Super fun
  • very easy to get fed if done properly

Cons:
  • Since Nerf it forces players to play more defensively
  • People will call you noob for running this build
  • You can be shut down if you don't communicate with your team
Early Game
You should lane with a champion who has range; if you have no range, lane with a stunner. Just play it safe and farm. play very conservatively because you shouldn't have to return to base until you have enough for tiamat.
Mid Game
Nothing special, just gank when appropriate, kill towers and more farming. you should have tiamat by now so farming is a peace of cake.
Late Game
You should have most of your build. You can kill almost anyone with proper formation with your team. people running away is easy picking. Just as Always, play it safe and communicate with your team.


If there are any questions about the build just comment on it. i dont mind critics but please keep it positive.
