Things that Xin loses after rework:
-passive attack speed from W
-attack speed scaling with cooldown reduction from W active
-on hit healing no longer scales with character level (read: not free to upgrade)

Things that Xin gains:
-free 15% armor reduction
-an aoe hard cc that can isolate a person
-SCALING OMGWTFBBBBBBBQQQQQQQQ WHAAAAA
-MANLINESS

Personally, I feel his W is way too plain now. For how long the cooldown is, it is utter **** compared to a similar skill like Irelia's W. Maybe add a small movement speed buff to help him engage better. Everything else is great.

yeah I don't see how it's much of a big change besides the ultimate and passive

But it is a big change. His team fight power went up tenfold because of the ult change.

He still has the cdr from his Q now, and his heal appears to have scaling so even if you dont upgrade it might be good. Only thing lost is the passive attack speed, which I will miss.

But them upgrades make it a okay in my book.

...... New Xin to come


I thought he meant a total rework when he said "New".

I hate the challenge mechanic, they don't get affected by ulti knockback if they are challenged by his passive?looks strange.
I almost never saw anyone getting knocked back by it.

Nothing on PBE is official.

If the testers find something gamebreakingly bad, they will change a few things.


The Xin Zhao changes will probably go live though.
