Introduction to Xin Zhao
Ok so this is my first build and i hope you guys all like it. When using Zin it is a must to focus 1 target with your allies. The best thing about Zin is he is great for charging into a battle and instantly scaring everyone on the opposing team. With his ult he takes 325+20% of their max health instantly. Your best bet is to set up ganks. Zin is great for both slowing and knoking a target into the air so they cant attack. This build will focus on getting those champions with alot of health dead quick.
Ok so the masteries i focused on the offensive side of the tree manly because Zin is a DPS character. I put the points i did in utility and defense because It doesn't hurt to have more defense and when your playing Zin people will want to do nothing but kill you because of your damage output. So when and if they do finally slay you, you have revive and the haste boost to get back there and finish what you started.
Getting the Boots to start of gives you that little extra speed in the beginning so that you can either get out of a bad situation or chance down an enemy. If you notice Zin has some massive movement speed at the end game making it almost impossible for an enemy champion to get away. The Frozen hammer is always where you want to go after the boots because it slows the enemy down and gives you a nice chunk of health. The Madreds Blood-razor is really nice because it gives you Attack power and speed, plus it does 4% of the enemy's max health in magic damage. And for the cherry on top just stack yourself with alot of those Phantom Dancers because at end game you will have max Attack speed, crit almost everytime. And have a really fast movement speed.
