There's a spear behind Zhu! Xin Zhao Guide.

Welcome to my Xin Zhao guide, this guide will be basically telling you how to build Xin Zhao and in the most high end damage you can get for your team. You can take a 3v1 if the scenario were to ever happen when you are half build.


Guide Top

Runes

For Runes I recommend flat armor pen. marks. Mainly because this works great for solo top players, if you are ever up against any tanks this will surely be able to overwhelm them with ease. You could also get straight attack damage marks for jungling without smite. Seals you can either have flat armor, flat mana regen/5, or crit chance. I honestly love crit chance it will also work great with your glyphs.

Masteries

The masteries are pretty basic for Xin Zhao, attack speed, 10% armor pen, etc. But you need some magic resist and armor with the bonus health from veteran scars.

Items

Vampiric scepter is a great item for sustain in lane it follows nicely with your battle cry and you can upgrade this to a blood thirster later in game. Berserker Grieves are a must any attack speed items including Black cleaver, phantom dancer, trinity force are a must on Xin Zhao. You need to pull of your three talon strick as fast as you can so you can get your three hits done over with and deal a lot of burst damage. And the infinity edge comes nicely to improve your damage and finish off really long games.

IF you are going jungle, you can keep the vampiric scepter just follow rest of the item build as usual.

Skill Sequence

Now the skill sequence is tricky, in lane you want your three talon strike and max it as soon as you can. I wouldn't want to play aggressive until I hit lvl 3 so you have your audacious charge and your battle cry to burst people down, you want to do this skill sequence. Q,E,W,R.

IF you are going jungle, go battle cry first, but still max your three talon strike to get the most damage.

Summoner Spells

Flash is always a must, it can help you get those tricky kills on squishy yordels or those enemies that get away with a sliver of health. Works great with your audacious charge.

Ignite helps in fighting against people who either are very fed and have lifesteal, or with tanks with massive health regen. Anyone who can heal them selves this is a great spell to counter with and can help get those pesky kills sometimes.
