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.
Xin Zhao is a well capable hero and can be used for many different purposes and is very adaptable.He is great to solo or pair up on any lane and can handle most champions in a 1v1 and is a good ***eset to any team (if played well). This is just a Quick, simple and basic guide which may help with your troubles with figuring out xin.
All Runes Chosen were of Attack speed this is because Xin needs AS to be of some threat to some heroes its also helps with survival using his ability Three Talon Strike and his passive (tireless Warrior) as with Talo Strike the faster you are the less chance an enemy champion has of getting away from you and getting easy kills also with Tireless Warrior it will keep you in lane longer as for the 3rd strike heal.
The Masteries just help set up AS & AP with a bit of life stealing and crit chance to help with staying in lane longer and be more devastating early on. But the Percentages will help later when damage items are gained
now as they have been set out is the best way to go about it but only if your playing well some items being pricy and all may not be obtained until its too late in the game alternatively if your doing worse off with your team you may want to just get a stinger to get AS and CD reduction but not the damage and passive you get with your Bloodrazors also 2 bloodthirsters aren't necessary I just put it in there cause if u can get another one you will not die as you will heal roughly 200-300 a hit with 2 and also when battle cry is activated and giving you double AS you will heal up to 1000 HP a second making you virtually unstoppable in a unfair situation ( But if stunned you will die) as no items give any heath so best thing is to just avoid and move as much as possible to not get caught cause u will drop like a ***** to her knees when 3 champions come around for a gank but if they dont, Happy hunting :)
IDC about this part really i recommend getting audaicious charge first off as it is a good move to start off with but 3 talonstrike should be first maxed out followed by battle cry then the charge last because of the AP needed for audaicious charge will make it not as strong as 3 talon strike as you will selecting true damage if you chose to usse the build.
The summoner spells explain themselves exhaust for slowing heroes that survive first attack (not many will) but nidalee with her cougar leep wil get out of reach so....yeah also flash for the same purpose and just for a surprise gank on some peaceful chumps :)
team work just stay in lane (5v5) til about lvl 8-10 and then start to patrol around for kills and help team mates with kills and just keep moving and pushing if you do this enough you will farm and also cause the hero in your lane to stop you so more feeding for you :D
I dont know umm Xin's a good hero and the build should help but yeah GL in future Xin plays
