Introduction

Xin is one of the most played melee chars in the whole game. Some people think he is easy to play, but if you want to be really good with him, you have to play a long time with him.
I play him most on Attack Damage and Attack Speed with a little bit Life. But you can also play Xin as a Off-Tank.

Runes

At the Quints I set 2 on Attack Damage and 1 on Attack Speed, because I think, if Xin get feed in the early game, he is unbeatable in the late game.
At the Seals I set the bit Attack Damage for the early game, but Attack Speed is possible too.
The Glyphs I set at Magic Resist, because if you have a ranged Ability Power-Champ on your Lane, they there really nice at the beginnig.
At least I set the marks all at Attack Damage, because you deal a lot of damage with them.
In all you get 17 physical damage from the marks and quints, 3,4 Attack Speed from the other Quint and 12 magic resist from the Glyhs.

Items

At first you have to buy "Doran's Blade" for 89 Attack Damage and a bit life at the beginning. After some laning and having 920 gold you have to buy "Berserker's Graves". First the normal shoes and then the "Dagger". After that you buy a "vampiric scepter" for liefsteal to stay longer at the lane. Then start with the "Phantom Dancer". First buy "Zeal" and then finish it. I think you see it, with Xin you need much Attack Speed. So start with a new "Dagger" and follow with a strong "B.F.Sword". Then finish to "The Black Cleaver", you can use its passiv very goofd against Tanks. After that you nieed more lifesteal then olny these 16%, so buy no a "Bloodthirster". Now it's time to sell your "Doran's Blade", if you hadn't done that yet. After that you have enough Attack Damage and Attack Speed, so it is time now to get more life. "Phage" and "Frozen Mallet" is a really good thing for that. You get life, a little bit Attack Damage and the passive is very helpfull to kill runaway champs. The last item you have to see from the situtaion and decide by yourself what is the best for you.
