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.
Hello, this is my first build I didnt know how to start so... I will tell you that I'm looking forward what you will say and what can I do to improve this build. I played Xin lots of game got 4 Penta Kills with him and I most tell you he amazing DPS champ not better as Pantheon because Xin goes for attack speed and DMG as Pantheon goes for full DMG. I hope you enjoy it and get good stats with my build :)
As you saw in the item order I get 3 main Damage items; IE (Infinity Edge), The Bloodthister (great for his stacks if your not dying a lot) and The Black Clever. The Black Clever is now a great item as it gives you not only Damage but Attack Speed. However, if opposite team has good DPS champs as well you should be considering buying a Frozen Mallet so that you want be squishy.
I go with Armor Penetration runes and Seal+Glyph runes for Critical Chance you might be thinking why Critical Chance ? The answer is simple it gives you 8% to get a critical attack at the start of the game which is great.
Why don't you get attack speed runes ?
I didn't get attack speed runes as they will give you around 7-10% of attack speed and Xin's attack speed is already amazing, his W gives him passive of 35% attack speed and when you active it gives you even more ! so there was no use.
I heard that Xin was a TANK not a DPS!
I saw maany builds which told people to go as a Tank not a DPS. Its true that Xin makes a great semi-tank like Warwick. But, still is not like Rammus or Garen. You need to go as a DMG for Xin not a tank !!
Pros / Cons
-Great attack speed
-Great ulti for teamfights
-AMAZING AGAINST SQUISHY !!
-Small Armor/Magic Resist
-Low at mana
Well I'm using a only one combo with Xin which is Q+W after E with R straight away. But, remember not to waste so much mana as Xin is really low and has small regen. with it.
Use your Q to cancel ulti's like Absolute Zero (nunu) or even Idol of Durand (Galio) those ultis are great as nunu's ulti slows you and Galio's taunt you.
