Hi here normanderi on his first guide.
First of all xin its good at ap and ad but i think its better mixed(i love mixed champs)
I'll explain every point all I can and tell me if you dont understand something i'm not english so I can have some error on the writing.
As you see, focused on fisical dmg on early cause we will have more ap than ad and ad snowball better early on xin, cdr cause i think its better to catch people and use more skills, hp cause the arrmor seals are pretty ****ed, mixed penetration for clearly reasons.
as the same way of runes based more on ad cause ad its better on early, and defense for more tankiness. you can put it on 9/21/0 cause really xin its extremly diverse and if you think you need more tank its fine
Here comes the heavy talk.
Why guinsoo? cause gives atk speed, ap, ad, spell vamp, life steal.(great item no one sees but anyway)
Then the tabi ninja cause if they stun you means that your team have no cc on them so better for you and if they focus your team you will kill their adc easy.
Cinderhulk cause you're tanky + with the new patch this item its better.(devourer at late does more dmg but i prefer tanky)(the smite i pick this cause this way I win more dmg)
As I said you can change the nashor's or botrk or both but they are great anyway and remember to check enemy damage on taking of both for tanky.
And visage cause you heals more, hp, cdr on 40% on full build(its the highest % you can have)and megic resist
We max e first cause its gap closer and its good at ap + better slow.
Then w cause the lvl 13 its on teamfight and you need the most heal you can have.
For the last q cause you only wanted to knock up
The ult dont push back the enemy with your pasive(pasive: when you hit an enemy(only 1 at the same time) with aa or the e the armor of the enemy its reduced)
You have easy jungling but I recomend to start blue-wolf-red gank bot or top(cause its the way you lose less hp and the mid can help with the pull) if cant gank go base and buy, then, continue jungling and gank from the back of the enemy without using e then when he uses jump skill or flash you use your e(take care of tower at low lvl). When you hit lvl 6 always try to land first your ult for pushing the enemy into your ally then like before the e when he jump or flash out.
Xin can do 2 thinks on teamfight both are broke the enemy posicion with his ult but the diference between them is when you enter on team fight.
1. Try to kill adc before they cant do ****, this is enter with the e on the adc and use ult to gain defenses and be a 1v1 with the adc but for this you need to know that your team can continue the enter
2. Be the bait form their back then your allys can enter easy the teamfight, in this case you need to be tankier cause you will be alone at the first, use your ult first then e on the target you want to kill
Pros / Cons
Xin dont have to much to say cause I explain almost everything.
pretty good dmg early
not easy to kite
pretty good at iniciating
for me on the top 5 duelist
backdoor like a boss(recomended to
buy iceborn and take off botrk)
cc **** him up
ignite and heal reduccion its dangerous
mid game could be hard if dont have kills
