So I really like building Tanky DPS Xin. He can take an immense amount of damage and still dish out his own. Anyway I played a game where I basically got so fed, I had a ton of gold to build a 6 item, but it would leave me bootless. Just curious in games like this what could I build. Or in fact what could I have built to be better?

My build: FON, M. Treads, Trin Force, Atmas, BV, Warmogs.
Other Team: was a lot of AP hence all the MR.

But lets just say against a balanced team. I mean Thornmail is an obvious choice if they have someone like Xin, Yi, Tryn, Noc, Vayne Etc. But yeah what could I have changed out?

Just trying to figure out what woudl've been a good build that wouldn't have made me slow (obviously cus I need to chase ppl and Xin rocks with AS too), not squishy myself, and still put out a good amount of damage?

I was thinking maybe:
BT/BC
Phantom
Boots/Madreds/IE
FON/BV
Thornmail/Atmas
Sunfire/Warmogs?

Just curious, this was one of those rare games where I just couldn't think of what else to build to make a better Xin.

Well in that case, was there perhaps a better build I could've made?
like assume you are a fed XZ against a balanced team.

What are your 6 items?

mine would be PD, PD, atmas, warmogs, frozen, and FoN. you no longer need boots due to your 2 PD, and you have mild defenses (4k hp, 100+ armor and 100+ MR) yet still be raping their squishies hard

edit: if you need arpen, get rid of 1 PD and get a last whisper, i just realized without boots you still have approx 400 MS with 1 PD, and frozen mallet slows them for u. or if you dont need arpen, just get a GA for more resistances.

Did you have 3 pots + oracles up at all times?

Make sure you do that before even thinking about replacing your boots.

Wit's End
Merc Treads
Ghostblade/Black Cleaver
Banshee's Veil
Hexdrinker
Guardian Angel

Xin Zhao should build more towards the DPS side than the Tanky side of the term "Tanky DPS".
