*Whenever Jarvan III, the king of Demacia, delivers one of his rallying speeches from the glinting marble balcony atop the Royal Palace, Xin Zhao is at his side. Coined the Seneschal of Demacia, Xin Zhao is the personal steward of the Lightshield Dynasty. His enigmatic, silent vigil has led to an abundance of conjecture concerning his ''secret life'' and origins. Whether it's ''Zaun double-agent'' tendered at the dinner table or ''indebted rune mage'' mused in the editorials of the ''Demacian Constant'', Xin Zhao betrays no hints to sate the curiosity of the masses... for good reason.

Prior to the formation of the League, Noxus was renowned for a spectacle called The Fleshing. It was a gladiatorial event with a cruel twist: as a fighter won matches, his number of opponents (generally prisoners of war) fought simultaneously would increase. This meant eventual death for every contender, but with unparalleled glory. Xin Zhao, known then as Viscero, was slated to face 300 soldiers, nearly six times the previous record. This was clearly meant to be his final match. Jarvan II, hearing of this unprescedented feat, infiltrated the arena to offer him an alternative: serve Demacia and punish those who ultimately sentence him to death in exchange for his freedom. Xin Zhao accepted, astonished that a king would risk his own life on his behalf. Under the cover of a prearranged Demacian assault on Noxus, Jarvan liberated Xin Zhao and his 300 opponents. During their retreat, Xin Zhao took a poisoned dart meant for Jarvan. This act of loyalty, from a man who vowed no allegiance, earned Xin Zhao a spot at his side until the day the king died. Now in the service of his son, Jarvan III, Xin Zhao is stepping into a new ring - the Fields of Justice - to fight for his adopted country and to honor the legacy of the man who gave purpose to his life.

''Death is inevitable, one can only avoid defeat.''
- Demacian Manual of Arms

well going for burst damage is pretty fun for Xin zhao cause he can rush at your enemies fly them up in the air and basicly kill them in seconds, Marks of desolations are what armor penatration is for. due to high defensive tanks you will need this # of runes to deal lots of damage.
Greater mark of resilliance: is for armor now here comes that time where u have low hp at the start vsing a couple of assasins. now all u need is armor. do you know why?
cause in battle xin is mostly targeted first. thus making him the ace of the game now u want to suck in all that damage from ressillance and for a bonus have a full stack of kills for two blood thirsters should do you good :D
Greater mark of focus:Helps u get your skills back faster as your chasing or fighting it actually needs more improvement cause some of my assist run away alot so i figured that i need more coolldown fast... :D
Lastly quintessense of desolation.. a big boost on armor penatration will keep u going in a fight
Remeber ur suppose to kill the weakes or squishies people on their team
so your a Xin Zhao what else can u not do?

Going off for a fresh start for a bersekers greaves is a pretty big advantage in early game
what you want is really fast attack speed so when your lanening with a partner your partner can easily come aside as your using three talon strike knocking up the enemy into the air thus leading with a kill
phantom dancers are hugly important 2 of them is what i recommend due to running away enemies youll need to rush back at them and use your q again so it might be good if u did that alot sooner you know? :D
infinty edge is good for criticals and crit up to 250% damage :D
blood thirster is just for damage and to keep you alive..:D

Skill Sequence

Allright this is the big part
When ever vsing 1 person you need to quickly cast these skills.
Over 1v1 u want to e your way in to them
before doing that
quickly use q and w for faster attack speed and advantage
mostly it will scare them off .
and again you have used your w gaining you cooldown reductions by alot you now have your e and q again u can use them to charge at your enemies and quickly kill them again
Oh and i forgot to mention use your ulti (r) when they are up in the air. :D
In team fights just get the lowest person and start going up again :D

Summoner Spells

Id recommend ghost and exhast cause u dont really need flash unless your playing ranked games.
ghost cause u can use it to escape
Exhast used for geting suceesses for you threee talon strike (e)
id recomend flash just in case if you get alot of damage taken but i wouldnt really cause then theyll kill you after that but i would use it in tight situations
id use ignite just in case if i dont kill them .. dont use it against healers like sona,soraka,kayle,taric, etc.. cause they can just heal it back just for the kill
in battles like 2 vs 2 u can use it to quickly kill them too
