Xin Zhao Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Xin Zhao - The Seneschal of Demacia
Xin Zhao is the newest champion introduced to League of Legends, and already he is hated by 75% of the community because his supposed OP abilities. Which in my opinion any champion is OP if you play them correct. This is my own personal build that will lead you to victory 80% of the time.
Early Game - Early Game I grab Boots of Speed and 2 health potions so I am to move fast in case a battle goes the wrong turn or if I need to catch up within an enemy champ. The health pots are so that you can stay in the lane longer, with you're every 3 hits you gain health so the health pots are just to keep you in the lane. Try to get as many minions kills as possible so you can build your critical items early. If you get a squishy champ in your lane aim for him as well as your teammate. Early gold is really necessary.
Mid Game - This is were it gets really fun. Where you start ganking and killing kids and making the WTF. First always Audacious Charge to slow the enemy making them unable to run away. Then hit your Battle Cry to give you cool down reduction and doubled increase attack speed, then hit em' with the legendary three talon strike. If that doesn't kill them then Crescent Sweep and grab the kill. If you execute in that order you will easily obtain kills no problem.
Late Game- This is were it gets really excited. You are basically invincible if you get the items that I recommended in that exact order. You are basically a miraculous dps/tank. You will be able to kill any enemy tank or magic so fast that you will spin there heads.
- I never use the same build every game because there is always teams that counter Xin Zhao so you have to sometimes tweak the build to survive against them. If your playing a team with hard stuns such as Udyr, Ryze, Ashe, or something of that sort I would recommended getting a QuickSilver Sash. It's ridiculously cheap and you can activate is every 3 minutes to cleanse yourself from all stuns. Or if you're playing a really heavy DPS team. I would go more tankish in order to keep in battle and be able to retaliate against enemy champions. More tankish items I would go for, Boots of Swiftness, Madreds, Frozen Mallet, Thornmail, and then go for a bloodthirster.
- Always to to lane with a good ranged player with a stun or a hard stun player so that you are able to hit with Three Talon Strike alot easier, making you able to get free kills. I would suggest Taric, Ashe, or Udyr. But that is just my personal preference as everyone is different.
- I will be updating this build every day perfecting it so please let me know what you think!
