[title]Welcome to Pre - Season 3,[/title] or should i call it season of ad casters or season of stacking [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png]. Hi everyone, my summoner name is Bierholer on EUW and i got Platin Season 2. I really liked to play Xin Zaoh Season 1 but in Season 2 he was really weak before they buffed him. Now with the new items you can afford in the shop, i would say that he is one of the strongest mid and top laners because of his great burst potential and insanly high early and late game damage(with this build). I'm not really good at writting english articels so i will just summ up the important points. Proos : - DAMAGE ... high BURST - [imgsmall=items/sword-of-the-divine.png] works together with your [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png] = OP you can just 3 shoot all of them - low cooldowns - CHARGEEE [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] Cons : - no real escape spells pre 6 - not really tanky - cc victim

[title][img=skills/xinzhao/p.png] Passive: Challenge[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [highlight]Xin Zhao challenges his target with his basic attacks and Audacious Charge, reducing its armor by 15% for 3 seconds. Only one target can be challenged at a given time.[/highlight] 15% armor reduce passive is huge together with [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png] and a [imgsmall=items/the-brutalizer.png] you will just shred through the enemys armor and nearly deal true dmg. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/q.png] Q: Three Talon Strike[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [highlight] Xin Zhao's next 3 attacks deal bonus damage and reduce his other abilities' cooldowns by 1 second each. The final strike also knocks the target into the air. Physical Damage: 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 (+1.2 per attack damage) Cooldown: 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 seconds Cost 30mana [/highlight] This Spell has nearly no mana costs and a really low cd on max level (5 sec) which is also your main Dmg Spell with a high ad ratio and also CC the Target after 3 Hits. With the cd reduction from [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png] and [imgsmall=items/the-brutalizer.png] it will be even sooner ready again. Three Talon Strike also helps you to kill towers and buildings as fast as [imgsmall=champ/masteryi.png] [highlight][img=skills/xinzhao/q.png] works with [img=items/sword-of-the-divine.png] so you kinda deal per Q strike 800-900 dmg when you got your [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png] so you deal ca. 2,7k dmg in the next 3 hits with an 100 % as buff from [imgsmall=items/sword-of-the-divine.png][/highlight] [imgext=] (because of your high armor reduction you can also 3 shot the tanks) [imgext=] [title][img=skills/xinzhao/w.png] W: Battle Cry[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [highlight](Passive): Xin Zhao heals himself on every third basic attack. Active: Xin Zhao unleashes a battle cry, increasing his attack speed by double the passive amount for 5 seconds, and causing his standard attacks to reduce all other ability cooldowns by 1 second. Health Restored: 26 / 32 / 38 / 44 / 50 (+0.7 per ability power) Bonus Attack Speed: 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 % Cooldown: 16 / 15 / 14 / 13 / 12 seconds Cost 35 mana[/highlight] Gives you even more As when you activate it and lets you finish off your Q faster. I would max this over [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] when youre getting poked down in your lane and need more sustain. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/e.png] E: Audacious Charge[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [highlight]Xin Zhao charges and challenges an enemy. The charge deals magic damage to all nearby enemies and slows them for 2 seconds. Magic Damage: 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+0.6 per ability power) Cooldown: 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 seconds Slow: 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 % Cost 70 mana Range 600[/highlight] I max this over [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/w.png] because this is your gap closer and helps you to burst targets even faster down, also when you max this the cdr is reduced and the slow stronger so its more easy to finish your Q and take the target down. Also the CDR will help you that your E is faster ready again and helps you not to get kited by your enemys when they think your E is on CD. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/r.png] R: Crescent Sweep[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [highlight] Xin Zhao unleashes a sweep around him that deals physical damage to all nearby enemies equal to a base amount plus 15% their current health and knocks them back. Xin Zhao gains bonus armor and magic resistance for 6 seconds for each champion hit. If a challenged target is hit by the sweep, it is unaffected by the knockback. Cooldown: 100 / 90 / 80 seconds Cost: 100 mana Radius: 375 Base Damage: 125 / 225 / 325 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) Bonus Armor and Magic Resist: 15 / 20 / 25 per champion hit[/highlight] This SPELL is just awesome it makes so much dmg, it gives you armor and mres depending how many enemys you hited and the best thing about this spell is that it knocks targets away only not the target that you challenged. 1. You can use this when youre getting ganked and the enemy top laner and jungler jumping on you to take you down make sure that you did not hit them just [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/r.png] nock them away and backoff. 2. You can use this to engage fights and just jump [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] on the AD or AP carry nock the rest of the enemy team away get some mr and armor and just keep on attacking the challanged target with [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png].....

[title]Farming:[/title] 1.Try to farm as good as you can but [highlight]never take free harass[/highlight] for getting lasthits 2.Always try to [highlight]get the gold for the canon minion[/highlight] because they give double the gold then the other minions 3.When the enemys lane is pushing never try to overextend, because when you die you could loose lots of exp and gold [title] Poke:[/title] 1. [highlight]Pre lvl 6 harass (vs melee)[/highlight]: When the enemys team Toplaner trys to lasthit or trade dmg with you always [highlight]first AA then [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png] him when he backoffs because youre winning the dmg trade and uses an escape spell then [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] after him[/highlight] (only when youre sure that youre not getting baited or you can 100 % finish him) and finish your [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png]. After this backoff. 2. [highlight]Pre lvl 6 harass (vs range)[/highlight]: Try to stay in the brushes and only leave them for lasthitting or try to get into melee range and do AA - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png] - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png]. When he has no escape spells like Nidalee Pre lvl 6 you can trade dmg by [highlight][imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] - AA - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png][/highlight] but only when there are not to many enemy minions. 3.[highlight] After level 6 best harass[/highlight] : [highlight]AA - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/r.png] - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png] - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png][/highlight] when you cant get into melee range then [highlight][imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/e.png] - AA - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/r.png] - [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/q.png][/highlight] (never forget to use your [imgsmall=skills/xinzhao/w.png] when you want to hit faster to be able to finish your Q) With this Harass you can easy bring everything under half health and they have to base and loose exp and gold. When they dont go Base you can finish them off with your next E - AA - Q and Ignite combo.

I believe Xin is one of the best champion to consistently win games with. He almost always wins his lane with his burst combo, and can win the game by denying the opponent and farming and killing to an extent that he will literally become unstoppable in teamfights.
