Xin Zhao Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Dear LoL community,
First of all, sry for my bad english :D.
I just want to make a little s3 xin jungle guide for beginers.
I cant tell you much about my elo and experience :D.
I played mid for a long time. I out farmed my lane, i made always sure that I help bot and top. But they still lost and I couldnt stay in other lanes the whole time, cause im a person who really care about a good farm. But nevermind, anyhow I noticed that the other lanes need more help, but then the mid laner started roamin too, so he got some kills and suddenly I lost my lane and yes. Then I started playing champs, wich you cant coutnerpick very well, because they denay farm and can dodge alot, like Vladimir, Morgana , Fizz and Orianna. Im also a good Lb, but shes useless lategame, so i just play her for fun or if i can counterpick with her. So I started playin ranked, and the same happened again. Other lanes lost, they fed my lane = lose.
Then I though i have to play jungle, to balance the game. I started playing jungle:
Maokai, Skarner (one of my main champs *-*), Xin , Lee Sin etc. I also started trollin junglers like Kassadin, Fizz, Mordekaiser etc... Then I played some rankeds because i was well prepared in jungle. I won many games (also carried them). Then later at 1,3 elo, they always built counter items to skarner, my ult has became useless, i couldnt engage etc... Then i start watching some streams, for learn more about jungling. I watched TheOddOne streeam, ocelote (duo q with Hyrqbot). I also watched some turnaments like IEM , MLG , IPL etc...I noticed that the new jungler of SK Gaming is a real good guy in the junge. I watched at his games and stats. He got a 77% win rate with Xin Zhao, and Xin Zhao became interesting for me. I Played him in about 10 games. I was ready for ranked. I played him and i won about 5 games. Then s3 began and i wasnt sure what i have to built. Then i searched some guides, but there are no good s3 xin jungle guides, so i decided to show you one (selfmade). This guide shows you how i go xin jungle. My elo dropped to 1,2k -.- . But after my ban i will start lvling my new acc (lvl 27) and i shall start xin ranked. Trust me I will reach good elo with Xin ;)
Sry that i dont have much informations about xin for you, but i guess the runes, masterys and items are the important things for Xin jungle, so if you know how to clear up the jungle, you wont have problems with this guide :)
Great Wishes CRITZX
Pros / Cons
-Strong early ganks - Without health items, really squishy

-useful in teamfights from your teammates
(you have to palce your ult well) - Not the best in late game , so you have to go
-Strong single target CC tanky
-Can carry rankeds :)
