Xin Zhao Easy Build

This Xin Zhao guide is very easy to understand. Instead of being an attacker Xin Zhao is used as a AD carry in this build. He starts off with Dorans to ensure that damage will be taken from the enemy team. Like most AD carries Xin Zhao's boots will be berserker's this allows his 3 talon strike to be more effective along with his battle cry. Then as the game progresses you build into a black cleaver. The black cleaver fits perfectly into Xin's 3 talon strike because of the 3 stack bonus the black cleaver gives. Then you get a Bloodthirster to make your chances of dying very small. Note you must have 15-20 stacks for this Bloodthirster to be effective. The next item is my opinion. A second Bloodthirster may prove to help because having 2 Bloodthirsters allow the minion stacks to increase more rapidly. Allowing your life steal percentage to rise quickly. The Last whisper is used to take down tanks. Having that increased armor penetration will allow Xin Zhao to target all enemies. Then the Guardian Angel comes into play. You may want to get a Guardian Angel before the Last whisper because its so usefull in this build. The double Bloodthiristers benefit greatly from the Guardian angel because you don't lose stacks if you use the Guardian Angel ability. Allowing more time for your teammates to help and allowing you to regain life with the Bloodthirsters. This sums up the Xin Zhao build.

Difficulties and Tips

This build is very weak against ranged foes. The early start of a Doran's blade allows higher attack damage but slower movement. Making you a sitting duck for ranged attacks. As you move on to the mid-late game you may find it easier to get your first bloodthirster before getting a black cleaver. This should allow you to survive longer in team fights and allow you to stack a lot faster. If you finish your build and the game continues to progress than sell your Doran's blade and buy an Infinty Edge or a Trinity Force to increase damage.
