Introduction

Hay,

welcome to my first Build here on Mobafire, and the only Reason why I created it is, because there are a lot of useless and weak Zhao's.
They only take ur kills and are good in 1v1 but a Xin Zhao is way more.
In this build i wanna show you the 3 ways of playing him:

    Laning Xin Zhao

    Jungle Xin Zhao

    Mid Zhao(problem?) :D

Runes

I wont get that deep in the runes, because i think its everyones own choice how to build his runes and it just belongs to ur own playing style.

This is how i build him.

On early game, i have enough HP to get domination on my lane, with the cooldown reduction my nuke abilitys get a bit better, and especially ur ultimate will be ready faster( but i will tell u about this later.)

The only reason why i took health per level is, that i keep the lane domination even if they got hp items first, because i will get way more hp per level then they do and so I usually keep the HP advantage

Masteries

U will maybe ask me: WHY THE **** DEFENSIVE MASTERIES ON XIN?

And here is the reason: I sepcialist on an effective ganker and teamfight Xin Zhao, and this means that i will have to buy some tanky items or even get some more HP.

In my build i maybe get enough hp but not THAT much resistance, and you almost want to max ur abilitys to stay in a fight and keep ur mate alive :)

Team Work

So now to the teamfights.

If u build Xin Zhao like i told you!, you should be able to open almost every teamfight, and this is how you do it:

activate your Q skill and dash in with E after this u ALWAYS have to use ur Ultimate, it will give you more resitance and will own the whole enemy team( if you read xin zhaos ultimate you may think, OMG ITS SO WEAK )

But it deals imba damage the the WHOLE team, and its one of the best combos to open a fight.

As soon as ur ult is used use ur w skill, you wont believe how fast all ur skills are ready again in lategame, with my w on i can use my q every 2 seconds , dame with my w( in the combo with frozen mallet and ur e skill wich is every 2 seconds rdy u will get everyone!)


( I heared about some important nerfes/ buffs on Xin , especially on his ulimate, if they are done I will tell you about them)


Okay so now to the real Team Work


if ur team is once in a fight ur goal is always to kill the carry, because ur fast and are able to slow and nock them in the air AND YOU HAVE EXHAUST!
These facts are the reason why Xin Zhao is the perfect squishy and carry killer.
( BTW take a look one those who write : OMFG NOOB OP XIN ZHAO!!!! L2P pls -.-)
always the ones who write this are weather noobs or just play carry or any squishy character, sometimes they are even both, but i think then u dont even have to do something, they get owned from themselfes :D)

okay so when ur done with the carry, what i seriously hope :) then u should protect UR carry or main damage dealer(there are ap carrys too!^^)
you dash to his attackers and nock them up then you use ur w skill to get ur combo ready again.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: UR THE LEADER OF UR TEAM, SO TAKE CARE OF THEM AND ALWAYS BE IN THE FIGHT!

Chapter 5

Okay guys this is the first part of my Xin Zhao build!
( and its not even finished yet (: )

I will soon add some videos about jungling and teamfights!
( because the way i jungle with Xin Zhao is a bit different to the usually know jungle rutes)

Be free to comment and test it! I'm always open for some advices!

And pleas dont just give me a bad vote, before you even tried it!(remember that it's not finished and some items and mor detail will follow!)



see you on the fields of justice!

and always remember: ur the king in this game! , so always be where the magic happens! ;)
