  • Introduction

    Hello and welcome to my personal Xin Zhao Guide! Well I play this Champion really often and decided to write a guide for it. In this guide you can see how to achive a really awesome result with Xin Zhao and his abilities. If you follow my guide you´ll be able to score team bashes really easily. Just to mention something before: If your team absolutley has NO tank, no DPS can be able to change the game. Well the best is if you simply premade with your friends. So lets start!

  • Masteries

    Well i´m skilling my Masteries always this way:

  • Runes

    And these are my Runes:

  • Summoner Abilities

    Well i personally perfer:
    Ignite and Ghost

    Also acceptable are:
    Exhaust
    Smite (for Jungling)
    Flash
    Cleanse

    But No-Goes are:
    Clarity
    Heal
    Clairvoyance
    [spell=Rally]
    Revive
    [spell=Fortify]

  • Abilities

    [spell=Tireless Warrior]
    The passive is really nice for jungling. To use the effect really effective you have to buy attack speed items.


    Three Talon Strike
    This is your main damage deal skill. Try to max it up first.


    Battle Cry
    This skill is really important if you want to burst enemys. I skill it to max after Three Talo Strike.


    Audacious Charge
    This Skill you only need to skill once in the early & midgame. It has a quite high cooldown there. After having Three Talon Strike and Battle Cry set up to the max you select this skill at the end.


    Crescent Sweep
    Skill your Ultimate whenever its possible. (!)


  • Skilling Order

    I always skill like this:

  • Items

    - - - - -

    This is the core of my Xin Zhao build. The most important is that you can relie on your team.
    At the beginning of the Match you start with a Long Sword and Health Potion. Then you try to stay in your lane(and hopefully getting kills) until you farmed enough gold to upgrade your Long Sword to a Sword of the Occult and geeting the Berserker's Greaves. Then you start Ganking because Xin Zhao is a perfect ganker (Thanks to his E & Q Skill!). You have to try to get as much stacks as possible until you are able to buy Phage. Then you stop completing Trinity Force and you should get the full Infinity Edge. After this you are going to get Sheen and Zeal to finally finish your Trinity Force.

    At this time mostly 25-30 Minutes of the game has passed and you are going to get Last Whisper then. This is a good Item against Tanks with Armor. After the Cassiopeia patch Last Whisper will be changed but now this item is a Must-Have! It now makes 40 DMG + 40% Armor Penetration

    If you completed Last Whisper you are going to get Banshee's Veil. This item is really usefull because of the "Spell-Blocker". To make sure that you can jump into many opponents this item can give you the "survivabillity" you need.

    During the game it can be really good to buy Elixir of Fortitude and/or [item=Elixir of Agility].

  • Build Example

    Allround Build:
    - - - - -

    Against Tank-Team:
    - - - - -

    Against Magic Teams:
    - - - - -

    Jungling with XinZhao:
    [item_icon=Madred's Bloodrazor] - - - - -

  • Combos

    For single targets: Audacious Charge -> Three Talon Strike

    For teamfights: Audacious Charge -> Crescent Sweep -> Battle Cry -> Three Talon Strike

    ---> Really important is that you activate Battle Cry before the Three Talon Strike.

  • Summary

    Well all in all I always play like this with almost no exceptions. This always works if you get your stacks and having a good team of supporters , casters and tanks. No second carry needed if having XinZhao in your team. Enjoy playing him!

    PS: He is fucking not Overpowered anymore. Just don´t feed him and everything will be fine while playing against him.

    See you on the Fields of Justice!
