Darius should be able to shut him down, as well as any other melee champ. From your list, I like Nasus farming Q, and just wither/run when he tries to jump you. after 30 mins, come back with dat Q and frozen heart, sheen & shurelies and layeth the smacketh down.

The problem with most of these approaches is they are mid to lategame. You don't start with a randuins ya know...
Hence, you have to be able to get the farm and not horribly feed during the first 10 min of the game to be competitive at all.

Randuin/Heart DO help some, but their AS-hoze wont do anything against his burst. He still charges, autoattacks once, resets it with Q, and has a lot of AS built in to get those 3 Q hits in. Even hozing their total AS by 25% still means they have 75% of their AS to beat you down with.

------
The key is to find strategies that will help you EARLY GAME which is what matters. If you see XIn with no smite, you know hes going top.
Start with CLOTH and FIVE health pots. This will take a good chunk out of his damage. Your mobility doesnt matter quite so much due to his gapcloser.
A Chainmail will likely be your first item when you go B.

Both of these can be combined into a Thornmail later on if that is appropriate for your champ. Some might prefer frozen heart for the mana and CDR. Some might go Randuins. None of these are going to autowin for you though.

Ideally you can counterpick him...BUT if you can't you need to at least focus on armor, try to farm as much as possible, ensure he stays pushed to your tower, and get your jungler to help you out. Xin has no escapes and its the junglers job to punish overextended enemies.

A well played teemo, yorick, nocturne, morde, and olaf can all counter xin very well imo, exspecially if you pick up an ignite to stop his lifesteal.

IF you did not know, hes a man and men always go balls deep and penta kill, also he IS XIN ZHAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Ok anyways, if ur using WW you basically got the same passives and itll be a long fight, but you will kill him eventually because you got a surpress and you can jump right back on him when he ults you, + with a frozen heart hes done for
