Playing against Xin Zhao

Key Insights
Q
resets Xin Zhao's auto attack.
Each
Q
auto lowers Xin Zhao's other abilities' cooldowns by 1 second.
The last enemy champion Xin Zhao hit with an auto,
W
's thrust, or
E
is Challenged for 3 seconds.
Against enemies Xin Zhao has Challenged,
E
's range is increased to 1100 and they cannot be knocked back by
R
.
Strengths
Has a strong early game, and has the option to play aggressively and invade the enemy jungler.
His teamfighting becomes much stronger after unlocking
R
.
R
doubles as a disengaging tool.
Synergizes well with
Goredrinker
,
Sterak's Gage
,
Blade of The Ruined King
,
Black Cleaver
, and
Death's Dance
. Can opt for
Trinity Force
,
Divine Sunderer
, or
Stridebreaker
when needed.
Weaknesses
Can be kited very easily by mobile champions or ones who outrange him.
Needs a lead to stay ahead, and falls off if he doesn't get one.
Once
E
is used, Xin Zhao has no way out of a fight.
