Hey man I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed this guide. I am a Xin Zhao main too and I received my M7 in 8.12. But since then, I haven't been doing too good. I used to go Lethal Tempo and Statik Shiv/Full Crit which worked pretty good for a while. But now I am trying the builds in this guide and I haven't been doing too well. Do you have any ideas on what to do if I fall behind? Also, what do I do if I get countered by someone like Shaco or Kha Zix?

All in all the meta right now is not forgiving, if you get countered then its even if its not hard to come back yourself through farming, its nearly.impossible to comeback as a team, i wasnt doing too great either and thats cause the game has become too early game, thus, a Trinity build seems less viable as its a midgame item, plus steraks doesnt boost the Sheen effect attack anymore so your efficiency dropped a bit, however i have beem using this Stormrazor build now and it works fairly well, i am still able to maintain a 60% winrate on diamond Xin Zhao jungle, so that shows that its viable.

Hey, I've just started to play ranked and got Silver 3, I was playing as a top laner most of the time and it was kinda OK, so I decided to play as a Jungler and oh god, it's so easier now to carry or at least give advantage for the team, I think I can reach Gold fast with it. Btw, I only played one game as Xin Zhao and I won, my first impression is that he is one of the best duelist junglers in the early/midgame right now, do you think he is god tier? And, when I'm ahead I rush the Trinity instead of making any defensive item first, is this the correct decision? Thank you for the guide.

You can use which ever build suits you, i reccomend several of them. He might not be God tier but he is up there still. As long as he gets an early lead then he can easily snowball the game compared to other champs. Rushing a deffence item first is never good, especially in this meta that revolves around early and mid game.

Thank you bro, do you have an youtube channel? If not, wich one do you recommend to watch as a Jungler beginner?

It is pretty broken, it gives a lot of damage, also, take one more look at the guide, i just updated it some moments ago.

like your build very much bro good work! what about a Xin Zhao Top Lane build?

HAMMERSLAYER (13) | July 11, 2018 12:58pm
Right now the meta overall is very unstable to be confident but i suggest first and foremost taking conqueror, with resolve path, and a build with the first items revoling around either Trinity/titanic or cleaver/titanic and then tanky bruiser with steraks, guardian, maw and generally offtank items. Keep in mind that Xin has a relatively low base health in comparison to other bruisers so you might be kinda squishy in early and midgame compared to others who build bruiser.

Every challenger jungler I know takes Phase Rush over PTA on Xin Zhao. Tarzaned arguably one of the best junglers in NA takes Phase Rush over PTA. Anything to say about this?

Every Challenger jungle you see, picked Xin Zhao just because is in the meta and they have an average of 50-100 games on him, in the last 3 seasons. Do you know what the average Master and Challenger Xin Zhao jungler level up? They level up W and then E, if you find me a good enough reason to level E something other than last then i will commend you for that. Because something is a trend, that doesn't mean it's good. Phase Rush gives you a burst of speed and some slow resistance and that's all, if i want playing in top Challenger with a team of my own then i might have been using that and also go a 50% supportive build to help the team and the carries, in solo queue instead you must carry yourself, you can't really on team play and a supportive Xin Zhao with Phase Rush + Zekes + Knight's Vow + Randuins. Even if you want a supportive build then you need PTA to make up for the lost damage.

That Phase Rush is the best keystone on Xin Zhao and this guide is misleading toward higher elo ? xd I agree with you l0stinfr0st

HAMMERSLAYER (13) | June 21, 2018 2:43pm
mate, we are both on the same elo, before 8.12 hit we were hovering around the exactly same elo and i am also D2 peak (achieved only by playing Xin jungle back in S7), you have 10 games xin with 40% winrate and you are going to accuse me of being missleading? Where are your credentials and where is your argument.

Having kinda bad luck with this build, it is good for doing dmg, but you cannot catch up to anyone.

Try to keep your spells for when they are needed, dont waste them all in one go, xin has 2 slows, 1 knockup and 1 dash, plus he uses items that provide speed, if everything is used properly tben people have a hard time escaping, if you feel you need more CC then use Inspiration for your secondry tree and use "Magical Footwear" and "Approach Velocity".

xin
Hello I just started on xin and I would like to get out of the silver you would advise me which of your builds to get out easily because I'll admit that I'm fed up I was gold and I can not get out of the silver now thx for your help :)

HAMMERSLAYER (13) | June 15, 2018 7:28pm
At first i would like to point out that if you are in silver it's better to improve at a core level, and by that i mean improve as much as you can as a player (improve awareness, shot calling, farming, KDA, summoner usage etc.) also, don't expect to use a build that is tem oriented, in lower elo you don't really need a team, as long as you get fed you can even 2 or 3 v 5 (i have done that on smurf accounts), try to not miss out on any farm and try to gank any lane that is pushed and can guarantee you a kill, afterwards use builds that can snowball hard like the Bloodrazor builds.

Do you recommend using full critical build Xin Zhao? I had seen some streamers using this build and it serve well.

HAMMERSLAYER (13) | June 11, 2018 6:36pm
I have used it every now and then but overall it's too squishy and too situational.
