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.
If ur playing xin zhao in ranked play him as a jugler or if ur gonna play him in lane this is the right build for you. The dorans blade for the beggining of the game is good cause of the attack speed glyphs so ur 3 talon strike will do ur damage needed and the knock up to land some more hits. When u get enough money go back and get ur boots so its quicker to catch up to runners I max Q first to maximize damage if ur laning with ranged use q on minions when ur one ur last strike of 3 talon strike e then knock up to do some damage instead of e and q and ur only land 2 hits on them and u get harrased back. After ur berserkers grab a zeal then a phage so u are faster and u have change of slow so they have lesser change of running away. After phage grab a B.F. sword to do some more damage and get the blood thrister to stay in lane longer with the damage stacking from the bloodthrister and ur life steal is constently stack up. Then grab a giants belt so u can start getting tankier not just run up harrass and run and recall NO! after u get enough money/gold go back for a frozen mallet so u have the passive as red buff (getting red buff is very important for ganks if ur jungling xin zhao and laning for that constent slow like the forzen mallet). After frozen mallet get some mer attack speed and movement speed by turning that zeal into a phantom dancer and that crit chance is also good (u can switch frozen mallet for a bansheez for the shield if there ap's get fed and a infinity edge if ur owning and u like to crit). And u can end the game with a warmogs for the stacking hp (thats pernament) and some hp regen. Now lets talk about jungle routes if ur jungling xin
zhao start at mini wolfs or blue golems either way still same route after wolfs or golem goto wraiths then mini golems and find a gank then if u get a kill go back for ur madreds or lantern or madreds and a boot then goto blue and then get red and when ur lvl 6 and have ur berserkers and lantern put the ward at the bush right next to dragon(on the left) then ult dragon q and w and q when its off cd and then dash if u want and q and q and q then smite it and go recall(should get 1 team mate to help u could solo it) then go gank and get ur zeal and just follow the build above once ur lvl 11-16 stop jungling if u want and start ganking more and getting dragon more and get mroe fed(remember if u get super fed and finish ur build let ur team get the kills so they can finish there builds) then grab baron with ur team once u ace them or if they have to defend and END THE GAME!
