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.
Doran's Shield - Good For early game Hp. This item is good for Xin-Zhao because it will keep you in lane for a while longer allowing you to get fed for your next items.
Berserker Greeves - Good For Attack Speed. These boots are the best for Xin-Zhao because, they give him some speed giving him more access to maneuver. But another great part is the attack speed mainly activating more passive health or Life-steal.
Black Cleaver - Great Attack Speed! This item is Key for Xin-Zhao because it helps his passive and life steal alot! It is also adding more damage for this fast attacking maniac!
BloodThirster - Good Life-steal! This item is the best life steal item ever. It will keep Xin-Zhao alive, and in combat long enough for him to focus down the enemies. This item also adds Damage Making Xin-Zhao a unstoppable Champion!
Infinity Edge - Damage Item! This item is a must have for Xin-Zhao because of the great critical Damage and Damage it Gives. This item will help Xin-Zhao kill enemies really fast.
Last Whisper - Armor Penetration! This item is not really being used for the damage. You use this item to go through any of those sneaky armor items they pull out. So you can inflict more damage stopping any armor!
Youmuu's GhostBlade - I choose this item to finish up the build. For its Cool Down Reduction and critical. It will allow you to jump at the targets keeping i the battle. While the critical allowing you to do mass Damage!
Greater Mark of Desolation! - Armor Penetration runes are the way to go with Xin-Zhao. It will help you go through any beginning game armor they might have.
Greater Seal of Strength! - Attack Damage is great with beginning game Armor Penetration. It will allow you to own the lane and stop anyone who tries to get in your way.
Greater Glyph of Fortitude! - These runes will keep you in lane alot longer so you can farm up. Farming minions is key play with Xin-Zhao if you are having troubles with kills.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation! - This goes with attack damage really well. This will allow it to do more damage because it will cancel out the enemy armor!
Teleport - This spell is good for keeping You around the map. And it will also allow you to pull of really good ganks!
Ignite - This spell is good for canceling out heals. Also it will help you pick up kills that just get out of reach!
This Build will allow you to farm very easy. With high attack speed and Damage farming off minions and other mobs should be very easy. To farm Pop you Three Talon Strke(Q) and your Battle Cry(W). Then just use your Audacious Charge(E) into them and get a ton of Minions. (I usually have 300 minions b the end of each game!)
Tips on Battle
A great way to engage a fight is to use Three Talon Strike(Q), Then use your Battle Cry(W), Then hit them with your Audacious Charge(E), and use Crescent Sweep(R) when the time is right.
Always keep on the enemy running is never a option. Unless you are completely positive you will die. With Xin-Zhao you don't run much because his Passive gives you hp every 3 hits(Keeping you alive longer).
