Threats & Synergies
Highest level of threat. It is difficult to control. It can quickly move away and also near. In the jungle, it is also very dangerous, but to win it is necessary to: follow that he used for the ability to move away when he wants to approach and vice versa.
The threat level is very low.But she can invade you at your buffs, counter gank the hell out of you and apply more pressure to the map then you can because of her passive stealth. The main thing is to protect the line from its gangs, then from it will not persuasion for the enemy team further in the game.
The threat level is high. Its difficult to control. It can quickly penetrate the defense and initiate battle. In the jungle, it is also quite dangerous but more vulnerable without allies.
Average level of threat. The problem for us in his AOE damage and jerk ("run") and ult. Just his "run" allows you to quickly navigate through the woods and gives the opportunity to make a fast counter-jungle.
Average level of threat. Problema for us in his jump, camp and Ult. To avoid the camp with a jump, you can use our ult. Ultimate Jax for us is not a particular problem, but if not ibezhat mill, it is likely that 1 vs 1, you lose.
Fairly easy matchup early on. You out damage him by a lot so you can bully him around in his jungle for the better part of 15 minutes. You can also out gank him by a lot so focus on that over farming your jungle. Pro Tip: Start red buff and invade him at his second buff, ward the buff and wait for him there. Then take Audacious Charge level 2 and kill him/take buff.
This is a snowball matchup for the most part but definitely leans in your favor early on when Elise is weaker than you. You can only 1v1 her early on if you dodge her cocoon, if you get hit by it you will probably die. Pro Tip: Start bottom side buff with your ADC, take double buff and get level 3. Then head top lane if your laner has it pushed and go through lane and wait in one of the brushes for her to gank. If top lane is pushed into their turret then just head mid lane. Be patient and wait behind one of the walls on your side of the map, then once Elise to rappels in to gank just counter gank her. If you kill her and take double buffs away you can bully her in her jungle for the first 4-8 minutes of the game and will be too far behind to ever 1v1 you in the first 15 minutes of the game. Also stay full health when playing against her because of her execution damage.
This is by far the toughest matchup of your life. There is no give in this one. If you beat him early he out tanks you and out damages you with the same build and if you lose to him early well then your pretty much screwed. He can counter jungle you and you really can't do much about it. The best way to play against him is to avoid him completely. The best tip for playing against him is dont lose the game early by trying to one vs. one this monster, you will lose 99% of the time. Another tip for playing against him is to out gank him and dont contest buffs if he is trying to take them and your team isn't there to help you out. He is not a very strong ganker and is consider more of a counter jungler, duelist and farmer. All in all his kits isn't meant for team fights which plays out in your favor later on in the game if you dont get owned by him early.
I find this really easy. He usually starts his blue than tries to steal your red, just tell your teammates start blue, clear wolves than wait for him to show up at your red for 30 secs 85% time, really easy early kill
1)knock-back/terrain abilities (Janna's Monsoon, Trundle's Pillar of Ice) are strong against Skarner because he will have a hard time trying to pull your allies. 2)Try to break Skarner's shield as it will remove the bonus movespeed and attack speed that it grants him. 3)It is imperative that you Flash away when a Skarner is anywhere near you, as you'll get pulled into the enemy team. 4)If Skarner is too fast to move away from, invest in a Quicksilver Sash or Mercurial Schimtar to break his suppression and stuns. 5)When fighting a high level skarner, you will want to want to lower its health and add a status ailment such as poison or sleep. Also, try to wait until the pokeball stops moving, generally a good idea. 6)Since the new update on skarner. Try and avoid going into the jungle when he chases you since he gets the bonus movement speed from his Crystal Spires when captured.
1)Try not to target him if he has his Defensive Curl on - as he will take much less damage, and he'll also return some damage back to you. 2)Try to stand amongst creeps to avoid getting knocked-back by Rammus's Powerball. 3)Most Rammus players build heavy armor. This will make him vulnerable to AP damage. 4)Taking cleanse or buying a Quicksilver Sash will let you immediately cure his taunt. 5)Even though he seems just tanky nd annoying, his ultimate does heavy damage so try to get as far as possible when he ults.
W - Battle Cry - Base Heal 26/32/38/44/50 ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50
E - Audacious Cry - 70/105/140/175/210 magic damage ⇒ 70/110/150/190/230 magic damage
Jungle Camps -
GROMP ATTACK DAMAGE 90 ⇒ 83
LARGE RAPTOR DAMAGE 55 ⇒ 45
SMALL RAPTOR DAMAGE 20 ⇒ 16
Quite a few changes here! First of all, straight up ability buffs to E and W. W now heals an extra 4 health during the early and mid-game. Pretty big for sustain. In addition, the gromp and raptor damages were lowered, so Xin Zhao can easily have a full health clear in the jungle.
The buffs to his E means that he will be slightly stronger mid-game when he maxes out E. It's only 20 extra damage, but it IS strictly better.
Xin Zhao now easily has one of the highest-health clears of any jungler. Abuse it by going for a fast level 3 gank.
I often play Xin as jungle but also as the liner.
I have checked up many routes and points in jungle, and now have found a good way which I play.
I don't know as you to teach to be aggressive on a line, but you should understand that you can kill very easily, the main thing not to escape.... But to one against the big congestion of strong enemies, I suggest not to be put.
I should tell that I am allocated in fight potential differences on all other types of champions, and Xin - one of the strongest. Hope that this guide helps.
