As some of you may have noticed, they did a minor update to Xin Zhao in the end of season patch. His Crescent Sweep will now proc any affects like Spell Vamp, which is awesome. It will also work with Rylai's slow, making his ult pretty damn powerful.

I played a few games as AP mid Xin Zhao today, and it seems quite good. If you build a combination of AP and attack speed, you can have absurd amounts of sustain later on. Something like berzerkers graves > nashor's > malady is a super gross opening that makes you pretty powerful mid-game, and from there you just ramp into tons of AP; Rylai's, Deathcap, etc.

Anyone given this a try since the patch? Does it seem viable to you?

Actually, at S3, he could be better. Malady and one mastery will add combined 15% of your AP to your auto attacks.

Erm... well... I suppose if you wanted to cross an on hit build with a Lich Bane then go for it... but.... wow that video still has me freaked out man. "what would heimerdinger do" is better, IMO, and much less freaky.
