Admittedly, I've tried it on Xin and found I don't really like it myself.
Sword of the Divine and Ghostblade cost about the same.

Would you rather have. 50% attackspeed passive and 30 armor pen on a long cooldown? (the other part of the passive is quite ignorable)

OR

Would you rather have 20 armor pen, 30 attack damage, 15% crit, and 15% cooldown reduction? With 50% attackspeed and 20% Move speed active on a cooldown?

It's obvious that ghostblade is marginally better than sword of the divine in every way. There is no reason to get Sword of the Divine on any champ.

The only champ I ever get it on is Udyr as a finisher when a tank or carry is giving me trouble with dodges, which is almost never. Also the passive isn't bad for him tbh since it goes hand in hand with phoenix stance.

Well, the thing is, it's a deceptively high amount of damage.

Divine = 100 Magic damage after 4 hits, which is REALLY quick for Zhao.
Wit's End = 42 Damage every hit if they have Mana
Bloodrazor = 4% Max HP as Magic damage.

It stacks up really quickly with how fast he'll be attacking.

Yes it does, but you aren't ever going to get all those items before 40 minutes unless you sacrifice all your survivability to get those or the other team just completely ignores you.

Either way, attack speed is good on xin, but armor penetration is a much better stat.

I'll 1v1 an attack speed xin any day with Just Randuins/Ghostblade/Last Whisper/Brutalizer.
