Okay, let's talk about xin zhao. I need some tips on how to play him, build, etc.

Currently, I'm playing him as a jungler because I know his pre-6 ganks are very dangerous and can often net a kill. However, my problem is my role and items. Is he played as an initiator tank or an assassin? How about the items?

And now that I look back at it, that is really pretty much how you play Xin Zhao. Although he needs slightly more skill and positioning lol.

The hardest part to get right is remembering to put that song on loop if you're new to him. Experts have a button that they press that plays it whenever they initiate.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

What about items and what to do in teamfights? Should I be the initiator like in the video? Or should I wait for their carry to be exposed then E -> R?

There are very man ways to play Xin Zhao, so unfortunately there is no defined way of playing or building him. Although, your role is mostly an assassin that can rip out insane damage output while removing the guard of anyone who stands in your way. Basically, you'll need some damage output. We have The Black Cleaver, Blade of the Ruined King, The Bloodthirster for usual choices. You'll need survivability if you want to take some hits, or you'll be killed in seconds. Warmog's Armor, Randuin's Omen, Frozen Mallet, Maw of Malmortius etc. are just a few items you can build on him. There's a lot to it. Read a guide, that will help.

I thought Mobafire was a site where most newcomers go to search for guides >.> Unless you were literally looking for only what you asked for, I'd still say a full on guide would've been easier to go to rather than making an entire thread for it lol

While he doesn't know it yet what he did make sense. Come to mobafire for the forums, for guides solomid is a better bet. Although if you want anything in depth you gotta come back here.
