Jungle 3.14 S4
Xin Zhao Build
Xin Zhao is an extremely good Jungle, you can be Bronze, Silver in fact no matter your division or level, this guide is perfect for anyone.
Three thing's you will need for this guide to work straight away for you is:
[*] Understand How to play the Role of a Jungle.
[*] Know how and when to gank.
[*] Click button's
If you can't do any of the above, mainly the first two this guide will tell you how to do those things, The easiest way to test this is to try it! There is no harm in losing a few games in the long run you'll realise a loss is a way to evaluate your decision making!
Don't worry, this guide is not a straight line that you must follow, deviating from the path I have set you is a good thing, introducing your play style and build habits into a pre made build will allow you to improve in all aspect of the game, overall evaluating your team's situation.
If you're losing buy defence!!!
Pros / Cons
[*] No aim required
[*] Multiple CC (Crowd Control)
[*] Great Ganking
[*] Large Damadge output
[*] Strong Ult
[*] Only escape requires a target
[*] Knock up need's time
[*] Ult can be useless
[*] So going to be nerfed
Taking 21 in offence and 9 in defence will give you early damage output's and heavy burst. Allowing jungle clears and gank to be very quick keeping you the same level as the solo laner's if you choose your gank's early and well.
[*] This is required for every jungle, never listen to whoever say's different.
[*] This is good for landing your E and chasing down kills, also a very necessary escape.
You want to take Three Talon Strikeat level one because it's decent for clearing buffs, but the main reason is that if you decide to invade or a level 2 fight breaks out, it makes a world of difference between having Three Talon Strike + Audacious Charge compared to Three Talon Strike + Battle Cry. After that it's pretty simple, max Audacious Charge first for the CDR then Three Talon Strike for more CDR.
Xin Zhao is one of the best camp clearing, buff stealing ganker's in the game! His early, mid and late are all excellent and he should be 100% banned every ranked game!
