Gank focus build
Xin Zhao Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Xin is one the most versatile champions in the game. He is very hard to defeat in a 1v1 and is good at tower diving. He is capable of tanking and assassinating targets. His main weakness is that he has no RELIABLE escape method which why ghost and flash are often when playing with him. If you want to see more guides please like.
I prefer ad runes or Attack speed runes with cdr glyph. The cdr goes good with inttlgence mastries giving you a solid 11% CDR. which is further reduced by your Q! making cdr very effective early on.
Pros / Cons
One of the Pros is that he is very versatile and deadly However he is often banned and people know better than to get close to you.
Scroll up to see the mastery for this build. Since Xin Zhou is so deadly, my favorite mastery to take on him is storm Raider-surge because when u charge someone they r gonna try to GTFO. An easy way to proc storm raider surge is ad runes and trinity force. You will also want intelligence masterys because of the cdr.
I like to go 4 Q first because of the cdr then I go for my E second because it is good for ganking. Then at lvl 3 W for sustain after that it depends on the situation.
If you are behind make defensive items if ahead go offensive. Use jungle buffs to get towers quickly gift of heavy hands and red-buff will wreck towers fast. If you want to focus towers get sheen early because it multiply's your damage. Get cleanse if enemy attempts to counter you with stuns or silences.
Ganking is pretty straight forward with xin. My favorite boots are boots of mobilty because they help you be every where at once. For ganking chilling smite is the best because extra move speed because it is good for keeping up with enemy's. Just make sure you dont spend to much time ganking because it can be very self-destructive if you gank and fail.
