Guide Top

This is literally the only way to build Xin Zhao.

After playing Xin Zhao for literally half the games I've ever played I've never found a more successful build that this for what Xin excels at: Wildly initiating on large groups of enemies and doing as much damage as possible before inevitably being killed and then yelling at your support - Who plays like a ***** and isn't warding anything.

The objective of the build was to get the balance between staying alive and doing damage, stacking too much either way will leaving you dying too quickly or not doing any noticeable damage. So the logic is build to the following strengths: Health, life steal and attack speed. That way, you can jump in the fight, deal damage and sustain.

This is why SPIRIT VISAGE is an early buy - the health, MR and CR is nice but the 20% extra healing from lifesteal and selfheals makes this an absolute must on Xin. Any guides you see that don't use this item are ****ing trash, and the people who wrote them need to take a long hard look at themselves. Combine the heal off of Xin's W when you've got a bit of AP with a bit of livesteal and the amount of face-****ery Xin puts out it terrifying, I've found the fun begins after you've built the SUNFIRE CAPE and RAVENOUS HYDRA and you can solo initiate on teams and survive for long enough for your team to stop being dumbasses and join the fun.

The Item Build - and why I choose to do it this way

I must admit to not really liking Xin top, I'd much rather play something like Nasus or Wukong, or Teemo if I'm feeling like a ****.
