Introduction

Welcome to my jungling Xin guide. In this guide I like to start off as a pure ad champion then lead onto the Atmogs combo. I will tell you about the jungling routes and how to gank and use spells efficiently.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

With Xin Zhao I usually start at red or blue buff, 3/4 of the time red. Get a leash from a teammate and remember to use Three Talon Strike right when the mob hits you. After that I hit lvl 2 and get E for easier ganks, if you do not hit level 2 after the buff then go kill wolves or golems. Go for top if it is a solo lane and the enemy solo laner is over extending other wise go for bottom lane if it is low health. When ganking make sure to run into the target scaring them to use their summoner spells first, or you can just go ahead and charge first. After getting a successful gank (killing the lane or atleast making them waste summoner spells) go back to jungle and farm up to 1300 gold. Once you receive 1300 gold go to top and ward the river bush if top keeps getting ganked. If not ward dragon if the opposing team has a jungler. If neither of those pose a problem then ward where ever you think will help.

Jungling Route:
Red/Blue Buff (with leash)
Gank (if not level 2, Golems/Wolves)
Wraiths
Golems/Wolves
Red/Blue Buff

Unique Skills

Xin Zhao is a special champion designed to destroy. A common mistake that people make when using his combo is activating his Three Talon Strike too early. The skill sequence should go like this:

AA: Auto Attack

Q -> E -> R -> AA -> W -> Q -> E

Team Work

In team fights if you are confident and fed, then you should if no one else can, initiate...
If the enemy team seems to focus you a lot but you still dish out enough damage wait a few seconds and charge in or use flanking or back attacks to your advantage. ALWAYS aim the enemy damage dealers first! The point of Xin Zhao is to devastate in team fights, killing their heavy damage will result in an ace, and that will prove Xin's purpose.

Conclusion

With this guide you should be able to devastate all. Use it well and comment and rate please :)
