Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash is my favorite summoner spell to use on Xin Zhao. It allows him to follow up his third Q strike if someone tries to flash out. It allows give Xin a much needed escape. Ghost is good if you want to run past wards and gank that way.

We start W for the incredible sustain, as of patch 5.5 buff to W, this is 100% the way to go unless you plan to go for a level 2 invade. We max E first for the reduced cooldown. This allows Xin Zhao to gapclose repeatedly in extended fights.

Xin Zhao is an EXTREMELY versatile champion. He can be built in so many different ways. This is my own personal favorite way to build him.


You want to rush Devourer if there aren't many ganks to be had. Rush Mobis if you are ganking alot. Fnish the other one you didn't finish right after. After, rush Trinity: Phage first, then Sheen/Zeal (prefrence), then finish the item.

After that, I tend to go either Randuin's Omen or Spirit Visage, but usually Randuin's first for the utility it provides, and then the other. Against burst champs like LeBlanc and Veigar, get a Banshee's instead of Spirit Visage to avoid being blown up.

Last item is usually a situational defensive item. Warmogs is nice, but Thornmail/Frozen Heart/Sunfire/Banshee should also be considered based on the enemy team comp.

You destroy her in the jungle if you run into her.

Jarvan IV

Easy

You outduel him hard. He does have more mobility than you but he can never duel you at any point in the game unless he is ahead a good deal. Recent nerfs made him much weaker.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Very strong early like Xin Zhao. If you dodge his Q, you can easily outduel him. However, he has ridiculous mobility and very strong burst at level 6. XIn Zhao usually ends up being more useful to his team than Lee Sin late game.
