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.
hi this is my first build, been playing Xin for awhile and have found this works best for my style of play hope you like it. please constructive criticism only.
i play Xin with the speed kill mindset, the faster i hit them the faster they go down. useing armor pen to deal as much damage as possible.
spells:flash is an awesome spell however you look at it either to get in and get that last hit for a kill or to jump to the other side of a tree line for that mouse slamming escape flash is great.
ignite is great for starting off the game getting last few hit on fleeing champs, also it has a health stop reducing health regeneration and healing by 50%
My game play
i always begin with boots of speed, 2 health pots. and a mana pot. going to my lane having a partner with exhaust is almost a guaranteed kill, dont be scared to use both summoner spells in the pre-game fights first blood is always a great thing and your spells should be back up around lvl 3 anyways. whenever you port back to base remember to always leave with a health pot and a mana pot while your under lvl 6 a few 100 hp and mp during these levels makes alot of difference. as for items i can usually getbefore mid phase starts. i get phage then go get my phantom dancer cause early game and into mid game phage is all i need to keep pace with enemy champs, it gives a nice health boost as well a movement slow.
when the champions start to group up Xin is the first to rush in completing youranda.s.a.p. are your main goals here help push towers and remember to tell your teammates who your planning to attack first so they can help damage them down. Xin is almost always the first to enter a fight and is targeted a lot because of this face a simple target ping is always good before your charge to combat!
after your mid game weapons are complete and your getting ready to start unleashing your super minions, if you haven't already 3rd phase is where yourwill be what saves you. allowing you to regain your life as well as add a large damage boost. the sixth item i leave open, for me it seems every game if it last that long i always change it.
remember to useright afterto maximize its damage out put, you will be close to your target to and since the range nurf toit works best when your on top of them. as for scaring them off with to much damage, they are slowed from your charge and by the time they break that they are in the air fromjust in to land with a speed slow from your mallet.
always remember to uselast common sense from the cd reduction. Xin burst all his abilities at one time as soon as you charge in so W last is a must!
i hope you enjoyed my guide to how i play Xin Zhao, please leave comments to how you think the build could improve, but please constructive comments only please and thank you.
