Armor? Works on most physical damage champs.

i dont think any ranged counters him easy with that gap closer he will come instantly if you attack him and take your squishiness in his favor.
malphite could have it easier than others against him i guess.

Jax absolutely ****s on him.

Trust me.

Olaf also does well post-6. True damage too stronk.

Malphite - Counter his AS.

Darius - Outdamage him

Also - Passive play works. Don't fight him 1-on-1. Coordinate ganks, and don't give him room to kill you - Because he snowballs very well.
Read his passive for pete sake, if he wants to challenge you and you fight him fair and square, you're probably going to get pooped on. Xin Zhao is a better duelist then Fiora, lol.


Not better than Fiora or Jax or Tryndamere or mid-late game Nasus or Renekton or Irelia or Lee Sin or...well, a few champs, but yeah he's above average as a duelist.

Any ideas?

(Not saying he's OP or anything, just asking who you think is a wise choice to pick)


Nothing since his buff. If someone plays him you better run for your life if he shows up in your lane.

Ranged chars have always been food for dashing melee champs, Xin was just too UP to do it properly.


Try giving mid to irelia, Fiora or even Xin now and watch them getting horribly fed.

Not even close. If you knock him back he can dash, if you do it after his dash he'll flash. If you put down your gate to run he'll knock you up or exhaust you.
