I heard he wasnt too bad at jungling and I wanted to give it a try. Any1 have suggestions on how to jungle as him
(runes\masteries\items) along with their suggestions for what items to striving for that game.

If you check out Phreak's champion spotlight on youtube for xin zhao, it is made for a tank/jungler.

ya, I thought his guide wasnt great either, I think he started with potion?
idk, go try it in a practice game or something....
Maybe buy a cloth armor + 5 red pot and start with golmn?

He doesn't need to jungle, since his combo is OP at the moment, the second he hits level 3, you can usually go for an early game gank or two with his epic 1-2-3 punch >.< with a ranged dps even slightly harrasing you should be ahead of a jungling ww off the bat, i say this because i hate having smite on a jungler, and the only jungler iv had repeated success without smite is WW, smite late game is such a loss >.< not having ignite and exaust up every two minutes, instead of getting that epic 30 gold for a seige minion late game

See what you do is stack attack speed and damage...and you facerape!!!! It's a difficult concept, buying infinity edge, phantom dancers, bloodrazer, bloodthirster, etc, but surprisingly useful and OP once you've mastered it. Fortunately for you Xin doesn't look like he's getting nerfed anytime soon so you can enjoy killing anyone without any trouble for the time being, no need for jungling.

I've done some games with Xin jungling, items that don't work with him are Doran's Shield or Blade. Cloth armour was cutting it close and long blade didn't work. Still need to try vamp scepter. Best results so far have been either Elixer of Fort or Agility.

This is assuming you get Golem first

Start with Vamp Scepter on Xin and go for dual Golems. Xin has no mana issues early, there is no need to go for big blue first.
