Introduction

Hiho all!!

There is a short but compressed guide for Xin Zhao to being played at Dominion mode.

From now, this build is under construction, so i'll be working on it for several days. Testing, reading your coments and updating...

Enjoy it ^^


Guide Top

Runes

The runes I choose are nothing from the other side.

Armor penetration:
9x Greater Mark Of Desolation
3x Greater Quintessence of Desolation
Rune Total: 24.93 (Maybe rounds to 25)

Cooldown reduction:
9x Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction
Rune Total: 8.1%

and... pretty one selection,
Mana per 5 Sec:
9x Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Rune Total: 10.53


Mmmmh, wait a minute... Mana regen seals?

Oh, you are asking why Mana/Sec and not Atack Dmg, Atack Speed, or even Health?
Well, there are two point to explain:

The seals gives no **** of physical dmg/speed/crit bonus. AD seals are expensive and near useless.

We are at Dominion mode! That is 1 or 2 ganks per minute. You need to combo them and be ready in few seconds to the next battle (don't press B if you are not under 10% hp, that will be a timewaste xD)
So... You need to regen mana as fast as you can to spam all your skills!!

Conclusion: For me, the mana regen is the best choice for buying seals.

Item Changes and Updates

30/09/2011 - Revised and Updated to be useful even at Classic Mode
Deleted Phantom Dancer
Why? Because with your skills and Youmuus Ghost Blade you can reach the limit 2.5 atacks per second. Phantom is near useless...

02/10/2011 - Revised and created a 2º icon for classic mode (5vs5)
New build in the line of the first, but a bit more expensive.
The 1º icon item build costs near 12k
The 2º icon item build costs near 13.5k
Its created for a long game, where you can earn a lot of money easy farming at mid/late game.


Guide Top

Items - 1º Icon [Dominion]

Well, mates...

At Dominion mode we start with a nice amount of money. We will use it buying the items of the 1º Round.

1º Round
Berserker's Greaves
Long Sword
No potions, not necesary...

2º Round
The Brutalizer
Avarice Blade

Here you can forget going back home for a while. The Avarice Blade gives you extra money, we need a lot of money for B. F. Sword. If you dont really need to buy Youmuu's Ghostblade as soon as possible then you can earn money for a while. Then go back home for the 3º step.

3º Round
Youmuu's Ghostblade
B. F. Sword

4º Round
The Black Cleaver

Here a fast Dominion game ends...

5º Round
Zeal

6º Round
Cloak and Dagger

Here a normal game ends...

7º Round
Sheen

A very useful item at late game. At this point the battles are fast, a lot of people die in a second. Be the one who kills, not the one who is killed!!! the Sheen is your friend, use it!! ^^

A slow Dominion game ends here... Forget the Trinity Force, too expensive and you need a loot of time to get it...

8º Round, last chance
Trinity Force

Still playing? You have a problem, mate!!! XDDDDDDDDDD


Guide Top

Items - 2 Icon [Classic]

Well, the item selection is in the line of the Dominion mode items, but with 2 modifications:

Deleted
Berserker's Greaves
Cloak and Dagger

New
Mercury's Treads
Phantom Dancer

Reason
For (more or less) 1.500 gold more you have the next benefits:
+25 Magic Resistance
+10 Crit Chance
+47 Speed
+10% Atack Speed

As you can see is more useful for late game and very late game, when the survival at 5v5 teamfight is no longer than a couple of seconds...
