simple solid guide to Tanky yet Dps guide to xin zhao
Xin zhao is made to be an assasin but he also has great potential to become a great
tank because he has the charge the slow and the knock up.
The key to xin zhao is to be able to stay in combat and do enough damage to at least keep the enemy at bay. But with my guide you will be able to do significant damage and be difficult to take down. In the first few levels, you should just focus on staying alive until u have enough health then start working on damage. Then finish build warmogs and go for atmas impaler. Even though the guide says you have only one hundred sixty three damage, then apparently forgot the plus around sixty more damage from atmas impaler because of the plus two percent more maximum health as damage. After getting atmas impaler you are a formidable foe upon the field of justice and with more magic resist with banshees veil you will become a difficult task to eliminate you.
In a team fight
you most likely will be the initiator
but the way you initiate may get u killed quickly but with my build, you probably will last even though maybe sixty percent of your health has been dropped. Just remember to charge in, flip on three talon strike, and battle cry. Then your team should be jumping in so finish off with crescent sweep and continue aiding your allies because you have just done some serious damage to the enemy. Usually with this build you end up tanking in a team fight and just keeping hindering your enemies so the rest of your teams can finish them off.
Pros / Cons
also decent damage dealer
has a slow
cool down decrease skill
Kinda squishy beginning
item s are expensive
if initiate battle wrong, can get yourself killed fast.
low mana pool
Xin zhao is quite good for tanking and dps
but remember this build is best for 5 v 5 games because he cannot out put enough damage in this state of build. This build is only better when you know there is a massive damge out putter n your team and you can take the roll of tanking for them grabbing an occasional kill and lots of assists. Other wise this build is not suitable. I plan to make another build with how to be a great AD Champion and dps.
For skill sequencing i see that you should get audacious charge first because it has the CC ability that slows your target so your team mate that damage deals can come in and pack on some damage. Next you should go for three talon strike which works well with your audacious charge after you charge in which further hinders them and can make them an easier kill. By level three you should have all three basic skills available to you. Next remember to first max out your charge and three talon strike becausee they are your best CC abilities.
