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.
Xin Zhao owns as both a Tank, and a DPS. He can fulfill both roles with ease when played correctly.
The Runes I have chosen are 9x Penetration Marks, 9x Dodge Seals, 9x CDR, 2x Armor Pen Quints, and 1x Flat Health Quints. These runes provide a balance of tanky, yet dps stats.
When playing Xin, take a solo lane when possible. If not go duo lane. I recommend not to jungle because there are much better junglers then Xin, and in a duo lane he can still do well. Especially with avarice blade first since it will give you income throughout the game.
