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.
pro's: killing very fast
jungle very fast
amazing in team fights
good tower diver
get targeted first
no ghost no get away
without frozen mallet very frail
this build is mainly based around attack speed. this build can work in a 3v3 or a 5v5. why attack speed? xin zhao is a haste champion and that means speed, just like master yi always stack attack speed.
my summoner spells are ghost and ignite why? ghost is used as a get away or to chase your opponent or tower dive then ignite just used to stop others heals and if they tend to run then i have ignite on them and then they tend to die if they're low enough.
my first items i use are doran's shield and then i grab a health potion. early game in a 3v3 or 5v5 soloing, or lanning with someone else you can still go for first blood. if you are getting your kills you can make yourself MBR(madred's blood razors) by the time you are level 10.why MBR? because your getting attack speed and then every physical hit deals 4% magic damage which can get you faster kill and also help your team take out tanks faster.
you'll be in mid game now and i mainly focus on making a frozen mallet because its a great all around weapon. then you would want to farm/ get kills to make infinity edge.
my main item build is:
i would try to make last whisper but i dont always get the chance too. you could also go for a wit's end for the mana draing considering how fast you are. you could also go for black cleaver because that is a great weapon from the armor pen. abd you get your extra damage.
depending if there are other haste champions you could go with a thornmail armor so they take more damage from hitting you leaving you on top.
so this is my xin zhao build, if you say it doesnt work or something oh well as long as it works out for me then im fine :D
