Introduction



Dr. Xin Zhao PhD



Welcome all MOBAfire members to my Top Lane Xin Zhao guide, this is my second Build Guide and I hope you enjoy reading it and learn something about being Xin Zhao. I will be explaining to you on how you should steal your team-mate's kills. Please remember that you do not have to buy the exact items or unlock the exact abilities in the order I have put them in, as I cannot account for every situation and you should change the items or ability order to your own accord.
