How to use this build correctly

The build i have created is an amazing build for a lot of attack speed / attack damage champions ,but personally i think it is the best for Xin Zhao. If you are aggressive early game and get several kills you will be set for the rest of the game. Getting Warmogs armour as fast as you can is really important because this makes you difficult to kill. Once you have aquired all of Warmogs armour you start to move into your attack speed which is very important for xin zhao. Life steal is also another good way to play Xin so i threw in the blood thirster, which i think is a very good item to have for any attack damage champion. I hope all of you find this build useful, and get a lot of kills with it.

Why these runes?

alot of people will argue with me in choosing those runes, so here is my explanation for everything.
Greater Mark of Desolation, those are selected cause they gives you 15 armor pene, which will bring you up to 21 with masteries, which is the same as the dragons armor, so you can easy solo it, and it helps you greatly in teamfights too.
Greater Seal of Evasion, gives 8% dodge, which in jungle will automatically give you 8% less damage taken.
Greater Glyth of Celerity, alot will ask why not focus? well this is a balanced way for xin zhao to keep up with health potions and get all minions in time, you wont get behind and wont need to wait for a health pot to be done to start a new fight.
Greater Quintessence of fortitude, 96 more hp is quite nice in the beginning nomather where you are going.


How to play late game?

Late game you will be the main focus of the enemy team. So wait for your main tank to initiate then follow in behind him/her and take out those high sources of damage on their team. Remember to ulti before you actually start auto attack them because your ulti does more damage the more hp that they have plus giving you an armor boost throughout the battle.

Pros!

- A really high amount of damage/attack speed
- Quick at destroying enemy towers (high attack speed)
- Not to Squishy (hes ultimates bonus and health regenration)
- High amount of life steal (hes passive)
- Jungle (Extra solo lane for team)
- Really good ganker (due to having both a slow and a know into air ability)
- Can carry a team to victory (being an all around champion)

Cons!

- Will be targeted first (cause of hes the carry in most setups)
- Jungling can be challenging at first (matters if your used to him)
- Very bad haircut (well riot games cmon make a good skin for him)

Thank you.
