Summoner Spells Back to Top

11.png

The standard jungler summoner spell which you'll upgrade to a red smite to reduce damage and deal true damage/hit to the enemy target.


4.png

IMO this is the best 2nd summoner spell for Xin Zhao because he doesn't have an escape only xenzhaosweep.png which can be used only on enemies so you need some kind of escape there.

6.png

This can be used with Xin Zhao but I don't like it because you sacrifice escape for mobility which Xin already has with his xenzhaocombotarget.png and xenzhaosweep.png.

6.23 EDIT:

Now you're asking yourself why Courage of the Colossus and there is a simple explanation behind that :)


You engage with xenzhaosweep.png or 4.png and then use xenzhaoparry.png to gain a massive amount of shield if you manage to knock away atleast 3 enemy champions.

You can also go with Fervor of Battle but Courage of the Colossus in my opinion is by far better on Xin Zhao

6.23 EDIT:

You're going to focus on your xenzhaobattlecry.png then xenzhaosweep.png for ganking potential.

Maxing xenzhaocombotarget.png would make you lose mobility and ganking potential.


Ultimate situations! xenzhaoparry.png


1.If you go in teamfight dash with xenzhaosweep.png on the main focused enemy and use ult to push the others away from you so you have time to burn his HP down.


2.If you gank a lane and they are close to a wall , deny their path with your xenzhaoparry.png and then dash on them with xenzhaosweep.png.

Nothing changed

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I use Refillable Potion with this build because you only need 2 early pots and after you won't need it anymore because of the fast sustain you have. And this way you get 60 extra gold !!

Core Items

    For 6.23 I went with a tanky Xin Zhao build since champions are getting tankier and going full dmg/attackspeed isn't going to help with a lot. PS: If the enemy has 1 type of dmg , build only 1 tanky item(Spirit Visage/Dead Man's Plate)

Situational Items

    All of the items from this group have a very good synergy with Xin Zhao in general and these should be your main items to choose from after you got your basic core build.
    Take these if the enemy is too tanky with a lot of HP or they have a lot of healing and sustain.

GOD BUILD ON XIN RIGHT NOW

VS

Amumu

Easy

Slower than you , no escape and you knock him up and slow him down very often.

VS

Diana

Easy

I rarely encountered her during my rankeds but when I did, I usually rekt her pretty hard.

VS

Graves

Hard

He will be a big problem if he invades your jungle because your sustain isn't strong when low lvl + he can kite you around while you won't be able to catch him.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Hecarim is a combination of medium/hard because he has a very high DMG pre 6 and I found him the second hardest champion after Graves.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

A mix of easy/medium because of his relatively high DMG but you can beat him quite easily.

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

High dmg , might counter jungle = bad

VS

Kindred

Hard

Now this is one of those junglers that can be very annoying and squishy at the same time.

VS

Volibear

Medium

Strong early and mid phase but you beat him late game.

VS

Warwick

Medium

You can beat him after lvl 6 very easily because your sustain and attack speed is greater.

VS

Wukong

Medium

Quite troublesome early game but as soon as you get your jungle item he will stand no chance!

VS

Zac

Easy

Hit him with a stick! He can be annoying but if caught counter jungling can be punished.

In the jungle! Back to Top

Starting Camp: Start with RED BUFF and try not to use smite on it unless you know the enemy jungler wants to steal it.

2nd Camp: WOLVES


3rd Camp: BLUE BUFF


4th Camp: GROMP


5th Camp:SCUTTLER




This is my usual must route in the jungle and after I try to gank as much as I can to help my teammates.


LATE GAME ! Back to Top
