[center][imgext=][/center] My name is Moddex, and this is my first guide for [imgsmall=champ/xinzhao.png], and my first guide on I've decided to make this guide to help my friends and those in need of a good jungling guide. Xin Zhao, in my opinion, has one of the most easy and simple jungles. Sometimes I don't even need to use all of my potions. Pros: [.]Great Jungler [.]Can deal significant damage with only a few items [.]Great CC [.]Amazing End Game if decent early game [.]Easy to use [.]Flexible jungle route [.]Strong duelist Cons: [.]No escape mechanisms [.]Usually focused due to high output of damage [.]A beard costs 520RP

Explanation: This rune page setup is pretty much good on any AD carry. The armor pen is a no brainer. The flat armor and flat MR help early game on ganks, which will hopefully result into a fed Xin Zhao. In short, THE SQUISHIES DIE.

[title][img=skills/xinzhao/p.png] Passive: Tireless Warrior[/title] [number]Xin Zhao is healed for 30 points for every 3 attacks that he lands. This amount increases by 5 every 2 levels.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This makes jungling so much easier. The heal really adds up early game. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/q.png] Q: Three Talon Strike[/title] [number]Xin Zhao prepares to unleash a fearsome combo, causing his next 3 standard attacks to deal his attack damage + 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 to enemy targets, with the final attack knocking his opponent into the air. Cost 30mana Range 375[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] I max this first over Audacious Charge because its much more mana efficient, its a great form of CC, and the attack damage bonus from it is amazing. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/w.png] W: Battle Cry[/title] [number]Passive: Increases Xin Zhao's attack speed by 20/25/30/35/40%. 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. Cooldown 24/22/20/18/16 seconds Cost 35 mana [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] I only get 1 point in this early game because 20% extra attack speed is good enough for me, I gank alot with Xin Zhao so it's a lot better to put your points into Three Talon Strike and Audacious Charge. Some people prefer to max this out first, but in my opinion, its a waste. Once you get [imgsmall=items/madreds-razors.png]/[imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png], you don't need the extra AS due to the passives on those. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/e.png] E: Audacious Charge[/title] [number]Xin Zhao charges an enemy unit, dealing 70 / 110 / 150 / 190 / 230 (+40% of ability power) damage to all nearby enemies and slowing them by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 1.5 seconds. Cooldown 16/15/14/13/12 seconds Cost 70 mana Range 650[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] I max this second after Three Talon Strike for the extra AoE damage/slow when I initiate a gank. [title][img=skills/xinzhao/r.png] R: Crescent Sweep[/title] [number]Xin Zhao unleashes a fierce spear sweep on targets around him, dealing 125 / 225 / 325 + 15% of their current health in physical damage. His magic resistance and armor are increased by 25 (+5/8/11 Armor and Magic Resist for each champion hit) for the next 6 seconds. Cooldown 75 seconds Cost 100 mana Range 350 [/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This ult is amazing if used properly. In a team fight always use this near the beginning and try to hit as many champions with it. The base damage plus the percentage damage is amazing. The defensive stats added per champion hit may decide whether you live or die.

Xin Zhao has a very flexible jungle route. You can start out a blues if you really want too, but I don't see why you would want too, three talon strike is very efficient, and you can easily solo blue at level 4 with [imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png]. This my usual jungling route. Wolves -> Wraiths (smite the big one) -> Little Golems -> then either gank or enter their jungle (if they don't have a jungler, or I know where he is.) -> then repeat for their jungle -> and start back over at wolves/wraiths. Another good route is little golems -> wraiths (smite the big one) -> wolves -> blue buff/gank -> enter their jungle if possible, if not, go get your red and clear whatever else has re-spawned. I fine this a little slower due to not having [imgsmall=items/madreds-razors.png]/[imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png] for the buffs, but it's still possible. Some tips: [.]Always use your Q right after an auto-attack to reset the timer [.]Always remember to ward with [imgsmall=items/wriggles-lantern.png] [.]Can easily solo dragon early game ( around 7 or 8 with wriggles ) [.]Don't push lanes if you are covering for them [.]Mid/Late game, give blue buff to the casters on your team that need it, as you will be doing enough damage and wont really have mana problems. [.]Always smite for the killing blow so dragon/baron/buffs dont get stolen by enemies, and you also get the extra gold from it so why not? [.]Try to gank as much as you can, but don't fall behind on CS [center]Smite Chart[/center] [center][imgext=][/center]

I thought I'd make this little section here for those of you that did well with this build/guide and would like to have it posted here. [center]These are my last four games using this build. [imgext=][/center]
