Threats to Xin Zhao with this build

Threat
Low
High
Show all
Threat Champion Notes
3
Yasuo xins biggest obstacle from yasuo is his tornado r combo so as long as you don't get knocked up you should never lose
3
Darius darius is tankier then you and more damaging but he's entirely ability dependant so just wait for him to you his grab or spinning axe attack then go in he will not be able to keep up in a proper 1v1 without all his abilitys
3
Wukong wukong is a very easy champ to figure out he will almost always engages then runs away so when he engages q and w him when he try's to run away using his invisibility just follow and wait for him to reappear if he is low e to him should be an easy kill if done correctly (95% of wukongs always run towards the tower remember to buy pink wards)
3
Akali with akali its all about how you disengage first wait for her to use her jump or wait for her to try and farm try to kill her when she is farming if she goes invisible leave her circle and e to her simplicity in itself if she runs away just get a pink and let her try it again wont work so well since she is weaker then you (most of the time if she is fed (PLAY PASSIVELY AND LAY THE PINK DOWN BEFORE SHE ENGAGES WITH HER R)
3
Cho'Gath dodge his q then auto attack him not much more to that as long as he misses his q and your not tanking a lot of minion damage he's pretty easy to kill 1v1
3
Riven riven is actually a very easy match for xin she dosnt do as much damage without her r and without her q she doesn't really stand a chance just wait for her to us her 3 jumps then engage xin is a much stronger 1v1 when riven dosnt have her q save your e for if she trys to run
3
Olaf olof is a counter for xin Zhao but not a very good one just attack him whenever he try's to farm and dodge his axes should be an easy lanning phase if you do those 2 things
3
Talon talon has insane damage but he is very squishy build your armor item first in my recommended build then buy a pink when he engages with his r simply r him right back and jump on him with your e from that point on hes no match for you
3
Zed zed is easy only because he has no real defense while you are just as damaging and are by all respects a tank simply wait for him to r then run away after his pop goes off r him away and e w q him he shouldn't be a match for you don't attack him while his deathmark is on you because he gets bonus damage for all the damage you deal to him during his deathmark which can easily backfire dodge is shurikens and you should be fine
3
Rumble sat away from his flames wait for him to get close to overheating then engage him with your e, w, q combo should be a breeze
3
Dr. Mundo mundo is a nuisance but hes not life threatening simply buy a bortk and eat him alive um num num burp dodge his cleavers by staying behinds your minions if he gets to close teach him a lesson
3
Aatrox aatrox is easy dodge his jump and and little skill shot and auto him to death when you pop his passive use a few potions and finish him off just don't turret dive him that's really some thing that ive seen a lot of and I think its just mind blowingly silly
3
Volibear voli is not a good 1v1 for xin if xin Zhao has a bortk and xins early game is stronger never fight volibear near his turret unless you are confident you can beat him in like 2-3 seconds

Guide Top

Team Work

xin Zhao works best as a team initiator so I will explain the proper way to engage with him



When enemies are spread apart



(REMEMBER TO NEVER INITIATE A FIGHT WITHOUT YOUR TEAM MATES NEARBY)


When the enemy is spread apart simply walk up to the squishiest Carrie and r the others away when they jump on you while their momentarily stunned kill the squishy Carrie while your team engages them



When the enemy is bunched up



When the enemy is bunched up remember to flash into the center of them and press r then e onto the squishiest Carrie and kill them as quickly as possible while your team engages the rest of them



Guide Top

Unique Skills

Xin Zhao has one of the scariest ultimates and passives in the game




R- Cresent Sweep Is an attack that hits enemys in a 360 degree circle around him that's deals 75-275 damage plus 15% of thier total health and gives you bonus resistances depending on the number of points that is in it and the number of enemy champions that you hit (which is why I always use it as the starting attack)aslo sends them flying and stuns them for 1.5 seconds


passive- basic attacks take away 15% of the enemies armor / audicus charge also procs his passive
