Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png14.png - Movement speed is so nerfed, stay away from ghost on Xin. Flash ignite works wonders,                                               especially when you want kill pressure in your lane.


4.png12.png - If you're running top Xin, ALWAYS run teleport. This allows you to split push to your advantage                                   and use your early game dominance to dictate the how the game will go over.


4.png11.png - Smite is an obvious summoner spell to take on Xin when jungling.

Masteries Back to Top

12-18 - Is for Mid lane. Mainly use this for the Thunderlord proc. If you time it right, it will proc with your W which makes most mid laners deadders. You'll lose dps however in the long sustained fights.

18-12 is what I use. The Runic buff is a must, helps your ganks and clear speeds with blue buff in the jungle. 

18-0-12 Is what I would use top lane xin. Mainly for the summoner cool down and the healing buff.

Three Talon Strike:

Bread and butter of Xin. Max this first for the damage it provides. (Preference really, some like the E max, Lane xin go for the Q). Always AA before Q'ing (it has an AA reset).


Battle Cry:


This is your passive healing. Max this last because well, you don't really have to rely on this. Every third hit will heal you, so a Dorans Blade start and this ability's passive heal is massive sustain during the laning phase. With the new patch, this is what makes you immortal. Crit damage+extra healing... very strong



Audacious Charge:

Your gap closer and if used correctly, your escape. Use with caution, for it can get you into sticky situations. It has a semi-descent slow that will allow you to get a full combo off. It can also be used as an escape, for example: turret dive, get the kill, then E to a minion that's out of turret range.


Crescent Sweep:

Your only real team fight potential. Knocks everyone back unless they're challenged (passive procs). Jump on the ap/adc and ult... = free kill if you can land your full combo(SMASH KEYS). Nice armour+mr buff if you hit multiple champs. Can be used as a disengage as well... I.E. Jax starts channeling his stun... wait for that jump.. then ult him back... when stuns over E to him and drop his scary butt! 

Challenge:

Your passive is pretty amazing. The rework makes Xin an armor shredding monster without the need of armor penetration runes. Your AA will challenge an opponent: this drops their armorr by 15%. Also, see the ultimate for use of this!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Core start for the pure damage it will provide your Q's. This damage is essential for your early game dominance over your enemy laner.
    Pick vs an AD middle, or someone you want to all-in. The extra health saves lives; just don't pick into a high harass lane like Ziggs. Your W also provides insane early game sustain with a Dorans start.
    Standard jungle start.

Core Items

    BOTRK rush, into Spirit(unless their adc is fed or their AD heavy) then deadmans. This will make you into an unkillable tank putting out massive damage. Usual build out of jungle is feral/boots determined by game/BOTRK/Defensive item/Rage/Defensive cap
    Kinda Ap off tank, It's doable but it's more situational. I don't prefer this over your standard build
    The oldschool assassin split push. You can 1v2 almost any fed ADC(with their support) and top laner that you might run into during a split push.
    These 3 items coupled with AS jungle item so you can cycle your abilities will make it so you can E 1 Q shot ADc's saving the other 2 Q's for the next target. It's actually unreal.

Situational Items

    Bloodthirster for the damage, less tanky teams. Rageblade for split pushing, Zephyr for those 55 min games to replace boots. Spirit for high AP teams and a lifesteal steroid.

I play Xin mid to dominate middle and the game. I will build as such. Xin needs to be somewhat tanky so he doesn't just get nuked. I'm not all for glass cannons, but he needs that damage. 





3072_32.png - Amazing damage item and great sustain, the best in the game imo. Get this if they're not stacking armor/squishier team comp.

3071_32.png  - Goes without saying, one of the better items on Xin. I would get this after a Triforce rush (need the mobility/ms)

3124_32.png -   SOlo baron at 20?

3143_32.png - Good stats all around, makeshift CC and currently more efficient than Warmogs on Xin.

3075_32.png -  All ad team? Make them pay.

3046_32.png -  Only use when REALLY ahead and want to have some fun. (IE build?!?!)

3156_32.png - Great Offensive MR item. If you don't need the HP from Spirit definitely pick this bad boy up

3031_32.png - More troll than used in ranked, but when in rome.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Such a pushover champ, extremely underwhelming. Hit him hard and often and he won't be able to do anything to stop you.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Kill her before she hits 6, and she won't get any cs. Just hit to hurt, and if you're going to combo, after your second Q dodge her taunt, its a locked up kill.

VS

Akali

Easy

You dominate her at will, make her pay for all the cs she takes, grab a vision ward and you will decimate her.

VS

Anivia

Medium

One champ I hate seeing. That passive is so pesky. A smart Aniva will just AFK farm and wait for ganks. It's pretty much up to her doing something dumb and you catching her out of position. It's more of a make her mess up match up. If you can bait her stun and E to her, shes meat for you. If she holds that stun till you charge her, shes gonna have an easy lane.

VS

Annie

Medium

One of those champs that just always seems to be a thorn in your side. Should be able to level 2 her, dictate the lane, and then just man-handle her when you get your botrk and you can take her burst.

VS

Azir

Easy

So he's the worst champ they've released so far but that's besides the point. Honestly you smash him at all phases of this game, and most likey the guy has no idea how to play with him. 

VS

Brand

Easy

I find them easy. They pillar, you E in q, dodge his stun attempt and hes a dead man walking. It's just about dodging that Q of his.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Hit her hard and often, her range isn't far enough to poke you without her getting combo'd, but that MS boost and slow will make it hard to grab her before shes under her turret.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

A good Cho will give you a rough time, but honestly; hit him often with just your E-Q combo to save mana, and he will try to pop you up, so watch his timing and run out of the knockup, then go back to finish your strikes. If you get a kill on him prior to level 6, he will be your punk-ass biotch.

VS

Darius

Easy

Out-damage him early, get some hp for when he hits 6.

VS

Diana

Easy

One of the easiest lanes you can have early. Just punish her if she tries to cs. Hopefully she doesn't run her jungler/top runes and runs runes for a melee ap champ with 19 armor. Shredding time.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

He wont kill you; dodge his clevers. Kill him pre-6 or wait for ganks. Never all in if you're not in front of him in levels/gold.

VS

Elise

Medium

Such a boring lane. She spiders away, hits hard.... kind of a broken annoyance champ that you have to just endure. Your best chance of lane domination is your level 2 combo.

In the jungle, AS SOON AS YOU GET RAGE and sated it doesnt matter how fed she is, you instantly kill her spiderlings which give you HP, on top of smashing her dps.

VS

Evelynn

Easy

Just harass her... she will get away if shes good.... wait for gank to secure the kills. Your combo does more dmg than her hp at level 2... so just finish the combo.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

Just face roll him early... he will try to siphon your hp.... just knock him up to end it and hurt him via Cs starvation and making him back.

VS

Fizz

Easy

You out burst him, hit him hard and often. You win early to middle game so take advantage of it.

Rush a 3155.png, get 3111.png, and then go for rage/botrk. You will be fine unless he's roaming and getting kills. Always save your E for when he tries to Q away

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Harass... he won't trade with you.

VS

Garen

Medium

Just wait for mistakes or ganks... too much of a counter to beat otherwise.(you out scale him)

VS

Gragas

Medium

More hp, but your level 2 combo will get him. Lane depends on first 5 min.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

My buddy Tyson loves heimer... but he's just a trashy mid at this point. Barring him hitting his stun EVERY TIME. you will obliterate him every exchange.

VS

Irelia

Easy

Out dmg early. Get ganks to keep lead.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

j4 has always been a tough match up for xin. His poke dmg early makes Xin ineffective for a level 2 rush. HOWEVER, if a j4 ever misses his e-q combo, he's dead. He's more of an all in champ than xin honestly in that respect. you negate his ult by just eing to a minion if need be, or him. A full build xin vs a full build j4, xin wins hands down now. Xin is WEAKER than j4 at 6, however, if you build somewhat tanky to absorb the splash damage of his combo, then start proccing W's and combo back, he's done for. 

Lane is imperative to farming well, get a gank to get on top, once on top of a j4, he's mince meat.

VS

Jax

Medium

It's a counter.. but PRESSURe early... and you will distance yourself. All jax's think they are the gods of melees... so take adv of that mindset.

VS

Jayce

Easy

Honestly, just farm up until you're level 6... and you can out burst him easily. Jayce's think their the best... so just smash them when they don't expect it... early wardens mail might be in store for an easier time farming.

VS

Karma

Easy

You out dmg her... and you can out harrass her... thus making her useless from early to mid... which is when she is strongest.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

The easiest champ to face.. this is what we call a bait pick. The other team INSTA  GRAB KASS HES OP!!!!  Then all the sudden he's 0-4, and you're full tilt snowball... Level 2 cheese him... and then just harass the hell out of him till he's 6.

VS

Katarina

Easy

You will make her cry at all points in this game. But a good one will just blink away... so make her lose CS and keep her under leveled... essentially the same as killing her.

VS

Kayle

Easy

You counter her hard... combo combo combo combo

VS

Kennen

Easy

Just harass... stuns are annoying but he can't kill you.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

You absolutely troll Kha's.. they come in thinking their going to do this, and that. You beat them in trades until they get their manamune maxed and have some items. Honestly I have never lost to a Kha lane. I have had a jungler sit there and make it impossible to do anything but farm... but never lost to a kha in middle. You're the ultimate counter to ALL AD's middle. That being said, of course at the 40 min mark they will be able to nuke your carry no matter what.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

You smash her with a lvl 2... but if you fall behind you're gonna need some help. Just keep her low... and not able to roam... she cant roam.. she cant go hyper carry. Pink ward for when she gets her passive, also remember the CLONE IS PROGRAMMED to run... so if shes just sitting there, that's the real one.

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

DO NOT FIGHT HIM PRIOR TO LEVEL 5. He hits harder than you if he can land his full combo... that being said... he misses a Q... hit him hard. As do all lee's their useless after 20 min... don't feed and you've won your lane.

VS

Lissandra

Easy

pre6 is easy kills... even if she snares you.. you're pop up will land. Just keep harassing and make sure she doesnt get blue.

VS

Lux

Medium

hard to say. Your level 2 will kill her in one shot. However, the good luxs wont let you get that combo off. A great lux > a great xin mid. But then again none rowlstar middle better than the man himself.

VS

Malzahar

Easy

The best match up for you. He literally cannot stop you until level 6.  YOu can give him FB and still run  the lane... however you get too far behind post 6 you might need a gank to break that pesky ult, only match up i might suggest rushing a sash

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Yi is a niche pick that people love to pick. Your level 2 kills him. After that he can kinda free farm but he wont get the kills he needs to do anything mid to late, effectively making you win.

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy

You beat him early... just make it count. NO TURRET DIVING MORDES!

VS

Morgana

Medium

A good morg will make you pay for going after her, only chance is the early game and making your plays count. Hopefully she goes pool instead of her snare early for rank 1.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Harass early.. and call for ganks later on... end lane fast... yes he will free farm.. but make sure you're taking turrets and getting objectives... Nasus mindset is "if i farm for 30-40 min ill be unstoppable". So use this.. they will be 4v5ing you... if he doesnt have a base... he can't win right?

VS

Nidalee

Easy

NIdalee's think they can harass all game no worries.... just level 2 him he will die... than after that she spears you... you combo her... you win. Again a smart nidalee will just play passive till 6 and wait for ganks... just dictate your lane.

VS

Olaf

Easy

You out dmg him... just smash him.

VS

Orianna

Easy

She is very easy to get FB early, and harass all game. With that being said... she some how gets a kill by ganking a lane, or on you. She will zone you with her annoyance.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

Wait to level 6.. and just do a full combo on him... easy win. He Q's you... you combo him... you win trades... just all around easy lane. Save your ult for when he comes to stun you, you can actually block his stun with your ult, then E to him and get dat booty

VS

Poppy

Easy

Lots of armor.. but you still out dmg him. Just don't get stunned.(don't be by a wall/turret)

VS

Renekton

Hard

Only lane I despise picking xin into. Rene is just a lane bully... and i have a horrible win rate against. Call for ganks and take turret ASAP. Rene falls off fast after.

VS

Rengar

Easy

you out dmg.. ward mid bush so he can't use his passive. Be aware of his stacks aswell.

VS

Riven

Medium

Riven is easy to kill now. Wait for her to use either 1-2 q's, her shield or stun... if any one of these are down she's a sittting duck.  And yes, you out dmg her.

VS

Rumble

Easy

Dodge q's and have your way with him.

VS

Ryze

Easy

Slow champ, pesky harass.... get him out of lane... don't let him farm... you'll be fine. Tip... make your engages count because he will dictate the lane no matter what if he get farm.

VS

Shen

Easy

More of a farm lane.. you can grab a kill on him early.. but after just try to grab the turret and let him farm... outside of lane phase shen's are just mediocre tanks.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

They build tanky.. so it's kinda a lost cause getting fed in lane.. but if you do go up.. their easy targets. Just end lane and roam for kills.

VS

Singed

Easy

Singed's don't respect dmg... so make them. You can kill singed's pre 6 with ease imo.. just don't get flung into the turret... made that mistake a few times.

VS

Sion

Medium
The re work made him a bit harder to beat. engage when his shield is on CD, also try timing his E and avoiding it. If he hits his E a good sion will always land a Q.

VS

Talon

Easy

Talons nightmare is a Xin. You out dmg him at all points... and if you engage first all he can do is run. He uses his Q... you dash in and combo him. He will be asking for a lane swap ASAP.

VS

Teemo

Medium

If he saves his blind.. he's tough... you can level 2 him because he takes poison instead of blind.. but after that.. call for a lot of ganks and you'll be fine.

VS

Trundle

Easy

You out dmg.... becareful of his ult.. he will be able to 1v1 you even if you're an item up.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Smash him early... and proc his ult as often as possible... only chance he has is a lucky crit level 1-3 to grab an early adv on you.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

One of the popular picks now. My favorite to lane against. His harass is nothing to fear... dodge his cards... e q he's dead. He comes in to blue for mana..  he's dead. He gets a gold card off on your second talon strike? Flash and hes dead. God I love picking on cocky tf's.

VS

Udyr

Easy

He won't be able to do much... if he maxs pheonix first you will get a lot of kills.. if he doesn't.. itll be a farm lane.

VS

Vi

Easy

Vis are ment for jungling.. in lane they get smashed.. you out dmg him at all stages in the game.


VS

Vladimir

Easy

Xin is one of Vlads hardest counters... just run a train on him. 

VS

Xerath

Easy

Hit him hard early, and he won't be doing anything all game.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

You SMASH yasuo.... level 2 him... and if you don't get him... just keep smashing him every time he uses his whirl wind. He literally cannot stop you.

VS

Zed

Easy

Thinks hes getting an AP champ, and hes going to counter them... you show up with the ultimate weapon against AD middles. Xin runs trains on all assasins. Make him waste his ghost, and then just nuke his ass.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Hes actually hard if hes good. Gotta learn how to time his slows and get to him with out him popping away.

VS

Zyra

Easy

Squishy, level 2 works... will be dead more often than not.

Daddies back Back to Top

After a brief stint playing pro ball in Norway I'm back to show you kids how to play xin. I'll be setting my stream up again and doing a climb from my decayed gold 5 to diamond again. Travesities will be awaited.

Why Xin? Back to Top

Xin is just the manliest champion. Once you're in, you're in.  Other champs have cowardly escapes like invisibility, jumping (121_64.png), stuns (80_64.png), 10320310 jumps, yeah 157_64.png  and  92_64.png I'm talking to you. You've gotta learn when and where you can engage; but when you do, you become unstoppable.  

In all seriousness, I can almost ALWAYS get Xin. I can almost always smash any other laner (few exceptions). People don't respect the damage you can actually deal with Xin, giving you a mental advantage. Most people think you fall off mid to late; which is semi-true, but what it really means is: you need to find the right medium of engaging and disengaging. 



IF you play my way, your KDA won't be that great, but you will make it so MUCH easier on your team. Trading 1 for 1 kills in a 1v3 bottom lane push while your team grabs that free baron; that's GAME changing. 


Also, Xin is the Swaggar.



JUNGLE XIN:  Makes an early game champ, into a late game terror. Sated+rage+hex+spirit+deadmans = a high DPS LFS tank who just mashes buttons. If you fall off early, stay in your jungle until base build and come out swinging!

Theory of Swaggarxin mid Back to Top

Early game is what every Xin player lives for. There are few strategies that you can employ. The one I mostly use is what I like to call my blitz strat. I won't sugar coat it. I live and die in the first 5-6 minutes. The idea is to dictate the lane. That means you TELL the opponent when he can CS, when he has to back, when he has to sit under his turret and get no exp. To do this you will use Xin's massive comboing ability. This style of play,is VERY dangerous. I can only give you tips to make your lane more successful. Trial and Error will be your friend in normals. I'm telling you this now. You will be ganked if you do what I tell you to do. You will be camped. However, you CANNOT let your emotions get the better of you. I still haven't learned this lesson myself so I wont preach it. If you keep your head about you, you will realize this. If the enemy jungler is camping your lane, you're obviously givng your lane a fit, and you're also taking pressure off your bottom lane(your late game hope). To further this theory, you have to also be another jungler. Mid players dominate solo que. You can be top or bottom with out being noticed in a heart beat, use this advantage. If you didn't pick up a kill early middle, get a kill from another lane. Every blue of their's should be contested, or stolen by you. It's the easiest way to pick up a kill on an opponent. Ward the bush, they come to take blue... nuke the carry... take the blue... jungler tries to stop you, kill him to.



With that being said. The concept is sound. Just have to execute.




Theory of Xin top Back to Top

Alright so theres a ton of champs out there that people think have tiers and this and that.... don't worry about that. Sure there are some OP champs that riot made due to a garbage patch.. but hey no ones perfect. Xin top is all about your early pressure. If you can press a level 2... and hurt your opponent... you can dictate the lane for the time being.  Here's my tips

1. 3:30 you will be ganked... you're gonna have a pushed lane if you're going for a fast lvl 2... and well you're xin.  

To counter this... push  for lvl 2 .. all in him.. if he doesn't die..  the wave should be at the turret. When this happens go and sit in the solo bush in river. (You should probably tell your jungler to counter gank) This is the easiest first blood... and double buff  exchange. You get this.. you win top.. no matter if you have a 58_64.png in lane. 

2. Rush BOTRK against tankier opponents... forget the brutalizer for now.. it's for sustain. You usually won't grab a kill on tanky tops unless you get a gank.. so just be able to maintain your lane until then. 

3. If you can get the turret down ASAP... do it... a lurking Xin can also snowball every other lane. After 8 min the turrets lose that extra armour.. take advantage of this. (people don't realize the Q's drop turrets in seconds with no dmg items). 



Tips Back to Top

1. Make sure you get wards on your first back. One should go for warding a side of your lane, and the other for their blue. If you can get their jungler at their blue around the 7:15 marker, you are golden. It will help every lane out in the process of your own.

2. Time your initiations with your q's... you set it so that if you have a jungler coming, Q twice.. and wait for the time to E Q pop up instantly. Especially if their low, 14.png and run away and let your jungler finish.


3. If you get up 2-3 kills, look to starve the opponent of cs and exp... if he's down 2 levels to you... you've done your job. 

4. If you fall behind, god forbid, you MUST get kills from other lanes. If you're not dictating the lane, help the other lanes... you're going to be a sitting duck.

Map control aka THE PREDATOR MISSILE Back to Top

Alright so you dominated lane.... and your coming up to the dreaded mid game when XIN FACE ROLL "falls off". You think to yourself... well shoot... what now? Well this is when the strategy of shoving bottom and telling your team to group middle comes into play. By this point you can explode their ADC... and most likely 1v2 their support as well. IF this is the case.. instruct your team to push with while you shove. When you get to the enemy team's solo bush on bot.. hide there... wait for that pesky ADC to start farming and then ... BLOW HIM UP.  Doing this makes it a 4v5.... and if you're shoving bot... you open up the entire map for your team with either a baron.... dragon... mid push.. top push.. because if they dont send some one to stop you... you're going to eat their base up.

The only thing you might have to deal with, is kids who blame getting caught on your split. It's hard with people who don't know positioning because if they do get caught, it's instantly a 3v5 with your team severely out numbered. Que the "WOW XIN, WAY TO THROW." Simply state, PLAY SAFE, DOn't get caught and you'll be able to dictate the map presence needed to win.

Jungle Route Back to Top

Listen there's 4 things you can do with xin. 



1. Start bottom side buff, clear to second buff and gank.

2. Start opposite junglers buff (must get past top laner unseen.. you can solo start anywhere with W stat)

3. Red buff to counter jungle enemy seconday buff.

4. Full clear starting bottom side.





You can decide this at champ selection to be frank, obviously if you're doing #4.. you could always break off and gank a lane if their being bad.
 

Always go Skirmisher. You're an AA champ with high sticking potential... you don't need the blue jungle item. You hit your stride levels 4-9. Lee's cant out duel you, you can solo dragon/rift  and you just gank 24/7. 


Tips for the jungle Back to Top

1. Use wards to save time jumping walls. I.e. for golems, wraiths... the early trinkets last 1 minute and as a jungler.. it's better served getting you through the jungle. It also helps for pesky counter junglers who not knowingly is farming your jungle on a ward. 

2. Always prioritize a clear over a 50/50 gank. I can't stand laners who can't hold their own for the first 8 minutes. I get some lanes are hard but hell, when I xin mid.. i expect to be ganked at least 4 times during lane phase. If your team mates can't maintain for 10 minutes, they aren't worth baby sitting. 

3. Get their buff timers ASAP!.  These net easy kills, and put their team in a bind early. Starve a nidalee/ziggs of blue all game... and  then you can give your buff away with out feeling the effects on your jungle. 

4. If you can sneak into their jungle and steal their red(if you're on blue side) or blue (if you're purple). Simply sit in a bush until 1:45 (bush infront of red on purple side, or solo bush top side for blue side blue). It's an easy way to get the timer for their buffs. If you have their buffs spawning at the same time and get wards on them, you can easily sneak and grab the one their not doing. Especially at the lower levels, kids just dont realize that buff timers is the difference between a decent jungler and a great one. 

5. Do your Buffs first, in this order it frees up possible counter jungles and instant map pressure on lanes. 

6. FIRST BLOOD IS NOW RELEVANT, Level 2 ganks are back in buisness
