As Tank Xin, you do as what any other tank will do, TANK

Pros
-By around End Game you will have around 3k HP
-You still great amounts of damage even without a bloodrazor
-In Team Fights people won't focus you making you able to deal great damage saving your some of your squishies

Cons
-You won't do as much damage as a DPS Xin
-In the middle of a team fight the only damage you do to everyone is your ultimate, then you have to focus a squishy

Runes
Greater Mark of Desolation - Flat Armor Pen - 410 IP
Greater Seal of Evasion - Flat Dodge - 820 IP
Greater Glyph of Celerity - 0.5% Cooldown - 410 IP
Greater Quintessence of Fortitude - Flat Health - 2050 IP

Summoner Spells
Spells that I Use

Exhaust

This helps with catching a champion and making you catch up to them with audacious charge and rendering DPS champions useless
Ghost

Easy to Explain, catching people, running away, I use it to run away mostly.

Spells you CAN use:
Flash

It can be a alternate for Ghost, but Ghost for me causes a guaranteed escape if your not near a wall

Ignite

Used early game, but it gets fairly useless in endgame

Teleport

Well I like this skill to defend your turret faster, and getting places, or gank people by teleporting to a ward


All other spells are fairly useless for Xin

Item Build
Are you ready? This section is going to be BIG

What I chose for a normal complete build was this:



This build gives you a lot of health some armor, and a bloodrazor to DESTROY tanks.
Although you can replace yourthornmail with abanshee's veil for AP people, also if someone else on your team gets Aegis, your aegis is fairly useless so, get aSunfire cape.

Early Game

Early Game your runes give you near 700 Hp, a good amount of HP. You want to last hit minions, because the build is EXPENSIVE. Once you have all your abilities you do this to the enemy:

1.Audacious Charge the enemy

2.You do this BEFORE Three Talon Strike

3.The reason you use battle cry first, is so you can speed up your talon strike

4.Around after this either you killed the enemy, he ran away, or your partner ks'ed you. JK

Mid Game

By now you should have your Aegis, or your Heart of Gold. In your lane you either have destroyed their tower, or they destroyed your tower. Or your still in lane. IF a tower is destroyed, start ganking. You always want to open with audacious charge so you can slow the team down. Battle Cry, Three Talon Strike, and Crescent Sweep, destroying them. If your chasing, Audacious charge for a slow, and just repeat the combo.

End Game

In your Item Build either your almost done with frozen mallet, or your working on bloodrazor. Now in Team Fight FOCUS THE SQUISHY, why? Because, well, here's an example you have rammus, and annie. You want to kill the one who does the most damage in their team. Well by the time someone's Nexus gets destroyed, your's or them. If it's yours, it's either you win some or lose some, or THOSE DARN FEEDERS AND LEAVERS D:<
