Threats & Synergies
Maybe I'm just bad, but his attack speed and movement speed slow make him impossible to duel as Xin.
Surprisingly enough, a blind makes an auto-attack reliant champion next to useless. Your R blocks his poison if he's outside of it.
Can be poked with W. Wait for his E to be on cooldown and engage.
Use E to dash inside the range of his Q. Use W to poke and CS while staying out of range of his E. Your R blocks bleeds from his passive if he's outside of it.
He can poke you, and has decent sustain, but you can poke back and block his ult with your r. Be careful of barrels and use E to dodge if necessary.
His W makes it hard for you to engage on him, and he has good sustain. Let him push in and hope for ganks.
Xin is a bit of a counterpick to Singed. Your sustain makes it easier to recover from trades, and your E can counteract his fling, as long as you aren't grounded. Your W makes it hard for him to engage or chase you.
