Gap closer that slows enemies around the unit you charge at.

Farming

Xin Zhao is a decent farmer as his hit animation works well. He can use his Three Talon Strike and Audacious Charge to help him farm. Also, if you bought Wriggle's Lantern it'll help a lot with the proc and you can kill jungle creeps as well.


Guide Top

Team Work

Generally, people expect Xin Zhao to initiate with his Audacious Charge and Three Talon Strike combo. You can do that or you can go in second after better initiates such as Amumu, Jarvan IV, Gangplank.. etc.
