Xin Zhao gains a Determination I and Determination II stack for every Wind Becomes Lightning strike or basic attack on-hit, up to a maximum of two.

At two Determination I stacks, Xin Zhao's next Wind Becomes Lightning strike or basic attack on-hit consumes the stacks to heal him for 7−92 (+0.1% attack damage) (+55% of ability power) (depending on level).

At two Determination II stacks, Xin Zhao's next Wind Becomes Lightning strike or basic attack on-attack consumes the stacks to deal 15 / 25 / 35 / 45% AD bonus physical damage (depending on level).

Xin Zhao empowers his spear for 5 seconds, causing his next three basic attacks on-attack to become uncancelable, deal 16 / 25 / 34 / 43 / 52 (+0.4% bonus attack damage) bonus physical damage and reduce his other abilities' cooldowns by 1 second each. The second attack will refresh Three Talon Strike's duration.

The third attack consumes the effect to knock up the target for 0.75 seconds.

Three Talon Strike resets Xin Zhao's basic attack timer and is affected by critical strike modifiers.

Xin Zhao uses his spear to slash in an arc and, after the cast time, thrust in a line in the target direction. Each strike deals 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 (+0.3% attack damage) physical damage to all enemies hit, modified to 50−100% against minions (depending on level), and the thrust's damage is increased by 0−33.3% (depending on critical strike chance) for a total of 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+1.1% attack damage) (+50% of ability power).Enemies hit by the thrust are also slowed by 50% for 1.5 seconds and, if they are a champion or monster, revealed for 3 seconds.

The durations of Three Talon Strike, Audacious Charge's bonus attack speed and Crescent Guard are delayed relative to Wind Becomes Lightning's cast time after 0.2 seconds of its activation.

Wind Becomes Lightning's damage heals Xin Zhao for 33.3% of his life steal.

Xin Zhao dashes to the target enemy's location, dealing 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 (+60% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies around the primary target and slowing them by 30% for 0.5 seconds. Audacious Charge's range is increased against Challenged targets.

Xin Zhao then gains 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60% bonus attack speed for 5 seconds.

Xin Zhao cannot cast Wind Becomes Lightning while dashing, but he may still buffer it. Three Talon Strike and Crescent Guard can both be cast during the dash.

PASSIVE: The last enemy champion hit by Xin Zhao's basic attacks, Wind Becomes Lightning's thrust, or Audacious Charge is Challenged for 3 seconds. The last monster hit by Wind Becomes Lightning's thrust is also Challenged for the same duration.

ACTIVE: Xin Zhao sweeps his spear around him, dealing 75 / 175 / 275 (+1.0% bonus attack damage) (+110% of ability power) (+15% of target's current health) physical damage to all nearby enemies, capped at 600 against monsters, and knocking back and stunning all non-Challenged targets hit over 0.75 seconds.

For the next 5 seconds, Xin Zhao is also invulnerable to enemy champions more than 450-units away from him.
