Playing against Xin Zhao

Key Insights
Q
resets his auto attack.
Q
's next three attack deal bonus damage and reduce his other abilities' cooldowns by 1 second, and the third also knocks up his target.
The champion Xin Zhao last auto attacked or used
E
on cannot be knocked back by
R
.
While
R
is active, Xin Zhao only takes damage from within the zone he creates; any non-turret damage is completely ignored from outside.
Power Spike
Xin Zhao is one of the few junglers that can threaten ganks at level 2.
Huge power spike at level 6 because of
R
's pseudo-invulnerability.
Can snowball a game completely out of control with a lead.
After
Enchantment: Warrior
,
Trinity Force
is a massive spike in power.
Vulnerable
Too reliant on
Q
's cooldown and
E
's bonus attack speed to win fights. Once they're down, his damage output is significantly lower.
When Xin Zhao goes in, he has no way to safely back out. Once
R
ends, he can easily be locked down.
Needs to be ahead to stay relevant.
Falls off very hard during the mid-game, especially if he's not ahead.
