Ok, so starting off with Xin:

A lot of people have often said that Xin is a tank but what comes out of the tank is also damage. However, I like to focus on damage, and NOT armor or HP. This is because I feel that high-hp tanks are ineffective in the beginning and deal a LOT less damage in the end. But if you prefer to have armor, just use my rune set-up... and a Giant's Belt is optional mid-game, but I don't like to waste 1.11k.

BTW, I also used Flash and Exhaust as my summoner skills because:

Flash: Teleports to your cursors location. Great for getting out of your tower dive and running away. You can also use this to pursue your enemy, and then using Exhaust.

Exhaust: Slows the enemy and a 100% blind. Great for pursuing your enemy, or if it's a 1v1 and you are of equal health, use it and then use your killer combo.

Early game:

Start off with a dagger and add a point to Battle Cry (BC). Then go top or bottom with another strong melee (Pantheon, Yi, etc.) or a ranger. It's much easier to auto-hit if you want, although you, as a melee dps, should last hit, and leave the auto-hitting to your partner. BTW, if you use my masteries and get a dagger, then you're attack speed should be about 0.88 attacks/second, which I digress, is very high for the very beginning. Just last hit, but NEVER, tower dive, or get to close, and always be careful for ganks if your partner is dead or b. If you already pushed a tower, go help Mid if they need it or gank bottom.

Mid game:

By now you should have Berserkers and Phantoms, and killing, by using Flash if they're far, then Exhaust if they're fast, and you can't catch up (some people like Yi). Then use your Audacious Charge (AC), then Crescent Sweep (CS), then Three Talon Strike (TTS), and then BC for a faster kill. Each kill will help you get your BF Swords, and eventually your Infinity Sword!

End game:

As long as you followed my guide, you should be preparing to push through their last line of defense. Make sure everybody is there, so you can push through together as a team for faster tower destructions!

Killer Combo:
AC->CS->TTS->BC->Kill->Run Away!
