Introduction

Hi every one. I played LoL when it fist came out and I already knew that Demacian clan will be my favourite heroes to play with. I mainly play with Garen but for the last few weeks I`v been playing Xin Chao. I have read a few guides about him and come to understand that they don`t use his potential in early/mid game. So here I`ll show you how I use my build and how it helps bring down enemies. But be aware that you might and will die pretty often with the build, if you`r not careful, but be rewarded with kills. With this build you don`t buy any potions what so ever. I know every one say`s all the time when they see me opening with Dagger and not buying any potions. But you don`t need because Xin Chao strongest attributes are speed and life steal. So if you are careful enough at the beginning you might pull some sweet kills.

Runes

Starting with runes. As a Xin Chao you`ll need a lot of armor penetration, CDR and attack speed would be nice too.

    Marks: Greater Mark of Desolation
    Seal: Greater Seal of Alacrity
    Glyph: Greater Glyph of Focus
    Quintessence: Greater Quintessence of Desolation
With those runes you should be able to harass early game with ease.

Skill Sequence

For skills you need to max out your BATTLE CRY as fast as you can. I`v put here raw skill sequence to just understand how you should build you Xin. In early game you`ll need only 1 point at THREE TALON STRIKE so you can disable enemies and few points in AUDACIOUS CHARGE to get close to your enemies. And of-course CRESCENT SWEEP as soon as available.

Items

At the begging buyDagger and rush for Sword Of The Divine. So you can get +30 armor penetration for 5 sec. This way you`ll now have roughly 55 armor penetration at early game so you can easily take down enemies. You should be able to buy this item within first 4 levels if you bring down enemies in your line and farm enough. If you are not doing well and getting struck down easily (as it might be if you try to use this build first time) you should get bootsafter you got money. But first you need to get attack speed to at-least to 1.000 in first 3 levels or sooner. After that you can buy the items above in any sequence judging how the game goes. You can change theBerserker's Greaves toThe Black Cleaver in the mid game when you don`t need that much speed or you feel comfortable with not getting where you want in such haste. Also you can buyMadred's Bloodrazor if enemy team has lots of tank so you can do extra damage.

Summary

To sum up Xin Chao is fun to play Champion and can be a great change for someone who`s tiered from his main Champion. Please leave comments below and in time I might put other guides out for my fellow DEMACIAN players ^^
