Xin Zhao (pronounced sin-jow) is one of the most aggressive champions in League of Legends. Some melee champions like arming themselves with shields, invulnerability, or damage reduction. Xin Zhao defends himself by having everyone else die first. To me, that's just the better way to play. Hyper-aggressive, built on attack speed and awesomeness, Xin Zhao doesn't take "no" for an answer. In fact, he's so pushy, that he demanded this spotlight come out days before the Season One patch. Enjoy your envy, summoners.

Xin Zhao can embrace any number of a few main roles: Melee DPS, Tank, and Jungler. The build I explore in this Champion Spotlight is a tank/jungle build. Relying on Three Talon Strike, Blessing of the Lizard Elder, and Audacious Charge, I'm able to gank and destroy my enemies extremely quickly. I generally build "tank" items like Aegis of the Legion, but I always want to finish with Atma's Impaler and elixirs for damage output.
