What do you think about using Stattik Shiv on Xayah? And is it also ok to switch out Lord Dominick's Regard for a Guardian Angel if the enemy team doesn't really have any tanks?
PH45 (2) | September 8, 2017 12:37am
Statikk Shiv can be a okey choice in some games, but I don't think you need it since you already have a very good wave clear in the first place. I find Runaan's Hurricane and Phantom Dancer to be much better choices. If the opposing team doesn't have tanks then sure get Guardian Angel instead of Lord Dominik's Regards since if you are dead you can't deal damage in the first place :) In all seriousness though if the opposing team is mostly squishies or a couple off-tanks you should do fine by going with Guardian Angel instead. If the opposing team has a lot of healing however and none of your teammates have any healing reduction consider picking up Mortal Reminder in place of some item to reduce the healing.

but its nice, i mean also like a build to use vs a team with 2 ap 1 tank 1 ap in team full ad team because there are lot of adc who suck on their builds and never buys mortal reminder or lord dominick then they struggle vs heavy tank or qss.
PH45 (2) | September 6, 2017 12:47am
I'll do my best to update the guide to be more in-depth in those terms soon. Thank you for the suggestions!

nice try my friend with this guide, but i feel like you have made a lot of builds and named each with one item existing in that guide that give no sense to all that items, if you could make it like special items to use versus draven build or versus ashe or versus vayne would be better.
PH45 (2) | September 5, 2017 11:19am
Well yeah those builds were floating around but don't really have anything special to name the for. They suit different composition playstyles but to be honest I haven't played Xayah in a while so I don't really have anything to comment on any specific builds to go for vs champions like Draven and so on. I will most likely get back on playing her more once I have reached my this seasons ranked goal on my main, I will report back on this guide once this happens.

Hey I had a question, what do you think about RFC on xayah? I see a lot of people suggest it as an alternative to PD because you get a couple of long range feathers in, secondly they claim shiv and runaans is needed for wave clear and you already have waveclear.
Im new to xayah so I dont know yet. You have a lot of experience so far, hence I wanted your opinion.
PH45 (2) | June 19, 2017 2:52pm
I haven't played her too much lately but in my opinion her waveclear is pretty good, though getting Runaans really enhances it. I think all Zeal items are perfectly viable on her, and they serve her different playstyles. If you need to be more backline in the start of the fights, Rapidfire can be good for getting that longer range aa off in the early part of the fight. I haven't personally tested it but I would imagine it can work just fine. You got to try and find your own playstyle with her. I mostly just prefer to waveclear with her and in teamfights dish out damage in multiple directions with Runaans (also helps with W's procs).

So I just want to say 1 thing since I do think of myself as a Xayah main atm. I might not be high elo but I have had extremely good success with a Crit build that Looks like this: Essece Reaver, Phantom Dancer, BotRK, Infinity Edge and Statikk Shiv. It gets you 100% crit and since extremely late game you can still sell boots you can make your Tank killing even more effective by buying Lord Dominik's Regards. That's my build atm most games if I don't buy QSS.

I think the whole point of this comment is to maybe make you aware of Statikk Shiv and ask why you didn't concider it...
PH45 (2) | June 10, 2017 11:52am
I don't really know. I just kind of felt better with rushing as a Zeal item either Runaan's Hurricane or Phantom Dancer. Needless to say Statikk gives a nice burst damage with it's proc but somehow I just generally have liked more of the 2 items. I will include it however in the guide thanks to your comment now. I haven't been a lot of Xayah lately but maybe when I get back to playing her I might try building Statikk to see how it goes.

Thanks for the guide was so confuced with her helped alot
PH45 (2) | May 7, 2017 12:21am
Glad that the guide was helpful! Good luck on the Rift! :)

Thanks for your reply, I'm glad to hear I could give you some hints :) Good luck at your placements :P

Hey PH45,

first, I have to say that your guide is pretty well structured and you've shown a good use of BBCoding, wich makes your guide very attractive! I already have played some games with your first two builds (not your Mid-Build) and I have to say that these builds (+ your guide) are extremely helpful.
Especially Xayah jungle is very exciting. You've alredy mentioned that the "only thing holding me [you] from testing her jungling properly is not having proper runes/masteries".

I tried some Xayah jungle, too and want to share my thoughts with you, so you can maybe test a few ideas and update your guide soon:
1st I like to get Bounty Hunter instead of Battle Trance . I guess this may change on your own style of playing Xayah but in my opinion, Battle Trance works well with burst champions and Bounty Hunter would give you some advantage as a high-dmg-jungler.
2nd I had some good experiences with Warlord's Bloodlust instead of Fervor of Battle , because [[Warlord's Bloodlust] gives you some special advantage in early for more sustain and kiting potential. I guess this may change on each unique play style.
3rd I had not that good experiences with Assassin . In my opinion, its not the best mastery for a jungler. I recommend choosing Runic Affinity , because Assassin won't help you while ganking, only with counter jungling, which should not be your main aim, especially, because Xayah has a very weak early.

In your build section, I'd recommend to build a lifesteal item ( Blade of the Ruined King) 2nd, after you've buyed Skirmisher's Sabre or Stalker's Blade and then finish with Bloodrazor. I've made the experiences, that Blade of the Ruined King will give you some basic "buffs", wich is even more needed in jungle as at bot lane. After this, I prefer to get a defensive item, such as Frozen Mallet or The Black Cleaver. This will determine your "squishyness" in early and make you to a great fighter :D

Last but not least, I want to mention, that it's always the better idea to start at blue or to make red and then instantly go to blue-side, because you'll need a long time for Krug s or Raptors .

I hope I could give you some hints or even help you and I'm looking forward to read your updated jungle guide :)

Thank you for the long and constructive comment! :D Glad that you enjoyed the structure of the guide! I haven't played Xayah jungle in a while since I've just grinded a lot of adc games lately and currently doing placements. Working also limits my playing time atm but I am eager to get back to experiment with Xayah jungle. I'll be sure to try your suggestions and update the jungling section once I've done some testing with things you mentioned. :)

Will try this build out! Been spamming Xayah recently in an attempt to get mastery 7 as fast as possible and haven't been doing so well, will try this out and see how it goes!
PH45 (2) | April 24, 2017 12:22pm
Good luck with your hunt for level 7 mastery! Im currently one token off level 7 :). At least for me this build worked out far better than rushing Blade of the ruined king or anything else, hopefully you will have success with it too!
