Runes

MARKS:


Greater Mark of Attack Speed with this rune I play with my Xin Zhao
or
Greater Mark of Attack Damage this is a nice rune too but I think you need more AS with Xin Zhao

SEALS:


Greater Seal of Attack Speed AS runes are made for Xin Zhao
or
Greater Seal of Critical Chance I think this rune is not as good as AS runes

GLYPHS:


Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration sometimes Xin Zhao has Mana problems so I use this runes and in Dominion per lvl runes are good
or
Greater Glyph of Attack Speed said it AS runes are quite good for Xin Zhao
or
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction just for early game where Xin Zhao have high CD

QUINTESSENCES:


Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage my favourite Quints cause more dmg to pwn the enemys in early
or
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed everytime this AS runes...
or
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed this Quintessence is for all champs good in Dominion.
or
Greater Quintessence of Desolation You can use this rune too it`s great in early-mid-late game

Masteries

For Masteries I normally use this build in top of this guide cause it have all we need from AS to Crit chance.
Alacrity is the best Mastery we saw for Xin Zhao in our life.
Havoc is very nice too cause we have now 4% more physical and magical DMG.
Resistance and Hardiness just for some armor and mr to take less DMG.
Evasion Haha I love dodge forever survived so often cause of dodge and then the enemys flame so often it`s just awesome to have it in our masteries.
Nimbleness after a dodge you get speed, not bad if you want to flee.

Skill Sequence

So we have 4 Spells like every other champ in League of Legends, but all champs have other spells and Xin Zhao got very nice spells.

So first we have Three Talon Strike wich is very nice cause it makes your basic attack DMG + some extra DMG and it knocks the enemy into the air after your 3rd hit.

Next we have Battle Cry, it`s so awesome cause it doubles the passive of this spell and you get per hit 1 sec CDR to your other spells.

Now we have Audacious Charge wich can charge the enemy, it has AOE DMG/Slow. Very nice to Engage or Follow the enemys.

Now we have his ulti Crescent Sweep wich can make HUGE AOE DMG cause it makes 20% of the enemys current health DMG and if there are 3 tanks near Xin Zhao it will make such a huge amount of DMG to them.

Wich order you use to make nice DMG?



It`s easy to make Huge DMG with Xin Zhao and here`s the best order to engage in early game:
1st you use Audacious Charge to stay near the enemy and slow him,
2nd you use your Three Talon Strike to make huge of DMG and knock the enemy into the air for few seconds,
3rd you use your Battle Cry to set your CD back to 0,
4th you use your Three Talon Strike again,
and so on

On late game you just have to make after your Audacious Charge your Crescent Sweep and this is your order to pwn them on late game.

Summoner Spells

Wich Summoner Spells are good for Xin Zhao and Crystal Scar?

Ghost I just say OP for Crystal Scar...
Exhaust Nice to win 1vs1
Flash I don`t think it`s better then Ghost maybe to teleport through a wall but Ghost is better for Crystal Scar cause you have nice MS if you use this.
Ignite Same as Flash not so effective for a Xin Zhao it`s good too but Exhaust is too OP in 1vs1
Promote Summoner Spell just 4 fun. It will bring you maybe 2-5 minion kills.
Garrison Maybe you can gank better at towers but is not as effective as Ghost or Exhaust

Items

Ok now we see what items we need with Xin Zhao.

So now we look back to the skills so he need much AS for Three Talon Strike and his passive Challenge.
Ok we need much AS for this skills.

So I buy first Berserker's Greaves for MS to capture points very fast and we have AS on this boots. So it`s a must for Xin Zhao.

So we have about 420 gold for a second item at beginning, I buy normally a Long Sword to buy after a Entropy. I know this item don`t have AS but it have AD + Health + Slow, so i slow the enemys and make more DMG and survive a little bit more cause of this Health.

At next I normally buy Sanguine Blade. I know it don`t have AS too but this item have Lifesteal + DMG and per hit Lifesteal + DMG. So I will survive again a little bit longer cause of my Lifesteal. Now we go to the AS items.

My first AS item will be The Black Cleaver cause of his AS and AD, it`s again a must for Xin Zhao.

Then I will buy Infinity Edge or Kitae's Bloodrazor. I take that item what I need first, if theres a tanky team against us I will buy Kitae's Bloodrazor, but if theres low hp enemys I will Infinity Edge to nuke them away.
