Runes

These runes will give you a ton of early game damage which is important because if you use a lot of armor pen runes and masteries you can build tanky early game and still have a lot of damage. The armor pen from the masteries, runes, and his passive 15% will pretty much make you do true damage early game.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- has a good utility passive for other ad champs to benefit from
- has very good sustain in the jungle
- skills enhance basic attacks so hes a good turret pusher
- has an AoE slow and knock up
- has fantastic disengage
- ulti will have a very short cooldown while farming due to the passive on his q

Cons:
- completely relies on basic attacks so he can be kited if they dash away after he uses his e
- has no escapes (unless you can use creeps in lane or by using wards you can use creeps in the jungle to get away)
- has mana issues if you spam his skills too much without blue buff
- his e's range isnt long enough to get to baron or dragon over the wall

Creeping / Jungling

You want to start the buff that is opposite to your top lane as when you take both buffs you can usually get a good gank off at top lane. if you can't gank top or mid just start killing either wraiths or wolves then go to golems. at this point you should be level 4 and again you should look for a gank. Xin Zhao's ganks are fairly strong so even if they aren't pushed past halfway you can still gank them fairly well.

Unique Skills

One of the special skills xin zhao has is that he has an AoE ulti that knocks back everyone near you UNLESS you used either your e on them or you attacked them within 3 seconds so some special thing you can pull off sometimes is if there is a minion behind your enemy you and e to the minion and then ulti them to push them away from their turret. but this is hard to pull off cause its kind of hard to aim the ulti, you also have to make sure not to get your passive on them or else they wont be knocked back. This can also be done with flash instead of using your e to go to a minion behind them.
