Introduction

Welcome to my guide of Xin Zhao - The Seneschal of Demacia. (Remade)


Guide Top

Runes

MARK runes :
You have a choice of runes on mark slots but i prefer you Greater Mark of Critical Damage for bigger critical strike.

You also can set greater mark of desolation for more armor penetration or Greater Mark of Attack Speed for attack speed


SEAL rune :
You have a choice of runes of seal slots but i prefer you Greater Seal of Attack Speed

You also can set Greater Seal of Critical Damage for more critical damage or Greater Seal of Scaling Attack Damage more attack damage but i think this runes are not so useful because Greater Seal of Scaling Attack Damage gives you 9 damage on level 18. But Greater Seal of Critical Damage runes are too good choice


GLYPH runes :
You have a choice of runes of glyph slots but i prefer you Greater Glyph of Attack Speed

You also can set Greater Seal of Critical Damage for more critical damage.


QUINTESSENCE runes :
You have a choice of runes of quintessence slots but i prefer you greater quintessence of desolation for more armor penetration

You also can set Greater Quintessence of Critical Damage for more critical damage

Masteries

Masteries depends on your playing style but try to benefit you offense with masteries like Sunder , Weapon Expertise and Executioner for more damage. Lethality is too good. Alacrity stack very good with your runes for attack speed


Guide Top

Items

STARTING ITEMS:

You can start with Doran's Blade for more damage , health and lifesteal. Try to do last hits on minions for easy farming.

Also you can start with Doran's Shield for more health , defense and health regeneration


BOOTS :
I prefer you to start with Berserker's Greaves. You first start with Dagger after that with Boots of Speed and finish Berserker's Greaves

You also can buy Mercury's Treads because of tenacity and magic resist but you have to buy this boots only if the enemy team have strong AP carries or 2 or more stunners

You can buy Ninja Tabi if they are strong Melee and range/melee carries

You also can buy boots swiftness


BOOTS YOU NEVER HAVE TO BUY :

So... Sorcerer's Shoes ... This boots are perfect for Xin Zhao ... yeah perfect ...DO NOT BUY THEM ... they are a bit useless for you because only Audacious Charge deals magic damage... You will fight more with Audacious Charge ? I think no...

Why not Ionian Boots of Lucidity ? Hmm... because of you Battle Cry skill. This skill cooldown your other skills with every hit when you activate it.



DAMAGE ITEMS :

Last Whisper
The Bloodthirster
Infinity Edge
Frozen Mallet
