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.
this is my Zin Zhao build, he has more health than regular DPS, so he wont die as much, and can continue to fight, while keeping the high damage of DPSers. With audacious charge, insane move speed and frozen mallet, and your summoner abilities, he can chase down people easily, getting a lot of kills. Please comment, first build, tell me what needs to be improved, tips and how you went with this build. :D
My item choice.
Dorans RingI start with this item because with his Tireless Warrior ability, he can lane for longer and regen health by fighting, so he'll be able to outlast the other team. i find its better than vampiric scepter at the start, it gives 100 hp and 8 damage.
bootsmovespeed is a win. always get it, with audacious charges slow and ghost they'll have a really hard time getting away
Mercury Treads you'll have enough attack speed by the end of this build, so its time to go get either this or ninja tabi, depending on the enemy team's composition.
The Frozen Mallet. I love this item because it makes your hero much less squishy (not that he is) while giving you damage and (this is the best part) slowing their movement speed everytime you attack them! 700 hp + 20 dmg + slowing = well worth the cost.
Phantom Dancer this item gives you some more attack speed, 30 % crit chance (wait till IE), dodge chance, and the best part... MORE MOVESPEED!!! with your constant slows and really high movespeed, you'll almos talways be able to get that kill.
Black Cleaver This item synergizes VERY well with your atk speed. every time you hit someone, it lowers their armor by 12. thats 60 armor pen right there, and it gives 70 damage, so you'll hit really hard
Infinity Edge One of the most expensive items in the game, its well worth the cost (i find), it gives you insane attack dmg (80), 20% critical strike chance, so now its at 50%, which is every two attacks! And to finish it off, it also gives 250% critical strike damage! while this might not seem like much, when you crit every two attacks and your opponent has no armor, its ridiculous how much damage you can deal.
Starks Fervor And... just to finish off your build, we'll add starks fervor. 40% atk speed, 20% lifesteal, 30 hp/5 (we didnt get it for that, did we?), and 20 armor pen!!! With your runes, black cleavers passive at full stacks, and starks, you'll have an amazing 105 armor pen! thats like having everyone but the tank (the guy you dont want to focus) have NO armor! true damage ftw
I went, with this hero:
30-6-11 *after update, with new items*
more to come...
