Items

I start off with Doran's Shield for added health and added health regeneration. This will keep you on the field long enough to gain level.

Next item will be Dagger for added attack speed. This is also pre-requisite for Berserker's Greaves which will give you added movement speed (2) and attack speed.

Next, I rush Black Cleaver. If you can build this straight without having to rely on recipe then it's much better. The passive effect is useful for armored enemy champions. Addiditional attack damage is also a must.

Atma's Impaler. This gives you added critical chance and attack damage (2% of maximum health).

Warmog Armor. This gives you boost in health (which affects the effectiveness of Atma's Impaler) and health regeneration.

Last Whisper. This will give you additional attack damage and armor penetration. Again, useful against armored enemy champions. If incase there's no armored enemy champions, I substitute Thornmail (for return damage - if there are AD-type enemies) or Force of Nature (for magic resist - if there are AP-type enemies).

Last item on my build is Infinity Edge. This will give you additional attack damage and critical chance. Optional substitute is Phantom Dancer. But I don't usually use PD.

Side Notes

Build for Xin Zhao still depends on the builds of the enemy team. It's always handy to check the builds of the enemy champions once in a while in order for you to determine the right build for Xin Zhao. If there's a need for more AD then purchase Infinity Edge. If you see the need for AS then purchase Phantom Dancer.
