Introduction

Xin Zhao in my opinion is one of the most capable melee characters in the game. He is a great ganker early game and can easily jungle. Late game he can easily carry a team. Mid game you can easily destroy your enemies. You might be thinking well this doesn't mean anything, any fed character can dominate. But with Xin Zhao its really easy to get fed if you make sure to pay attention.

Runes

For Marks I use 4 armor pen and 5 crit damage. I find that that little armor pen makes a big difference. And lets face it with this build you cant go wrong with more crit damage. For seals i take attack speed. Xin benefits so much from attack speed because you always want that knock up and being able to do it faster makes a huge difference. For glyphs i take cooldown reduction because i find that cooldown reduction helps xin out a lot. For quintessences I take flat crit dmg. Crit damage will help you out SOOO much with this build.

Masteries

I use a simple 21/0/9 mastery set. I take the 9 in utility to help with my jungling. The increased xp gain helps a lot and the 15 percent increased neutral buff duration helps a lot

Items

CORE ITEMS:
Infinity Edge
Phantom Dancer
Bloodthirster
Berserkers Greaves

SITUATIONAL ITEMS:
Banshees veil
Randuin's Omen
Madreds Bloodrazer


I sell my wriggles lantern later in the game. Thats where the situational items come in to play. If im facing a heavily AD team or the one or 2 people on their team thats stopping me from acing them or the one or 2 people thats just dominating me are AD i will pick up a randuins omen. If im getting dominated by AP then ill pick up a banshees veil. Now if neither one is really dominating me but tanks are getting in my way i will pick up a madreds bloodrazer to help deal with them.

Summoner Spells

The summoner spells i take for jungle xin are ghost and smite. You will need smite to jungle obviously so thats a no brainer. Now there are some other options for spells. Exhaust is a good option. Ignite would be another good option. Flash could be another good option as well. Cleans is also an option for ranked play if ur seeing that they have a lot of CC on their team but i wouldnt recommend it for normal games. Teleport is another one that i would use maybe for ranked games if ur team doesnt have one because one teleport is always nice to have. But i much prefer ghost over all of these because it helps with ganking so much and if ur a little behind somebody and u need the extra speed boost ghost helps with that.

OFF LIMIT SPELLS:
rally
revive
clarity
clairvoyance
fortify
heal
