I used to play Xin a lot, but after numerous nerfs I let him be. This was a long time ago.

Now it seems like this patch is mostly nerfing him all over, but it has been a long time since I've played him and I feel like I may be missing an actual buff? Or is it just a shift in his gameplay?

I'd love to get some more educated opinions than my own. Thanks.

Edit: Downvotes? For asking a question? Come on community, you're better than that. Oh, wait, people only read post titles now. I see.

shift in gameplay, he's better suited for top now

he's a bit better than before but in different areas.

15% armor reduction passive is a LOT.

Well, top is my favorite, so I'll definitely try him out up there. Thanks.

He's garbage now, don't bother playing him.

That did feel like a pretty decent change, though not enough to really change him that much, especially since it only effects one champion I think. Any other major improvements to Xin in your guys opinion?

Yah. Now he has a huge AoE knockback, extra slow and free armor pen. He's complete trash please ignore him.

Go read the notes, if you're a long time Xin player and don't think this was a buff you must've never played him.

Q actually scales now and the CD gets lessened per level.
E slows a good bit longer and slows for a bigger percent as well.
Ult scales and has a great CC effect.
Passive makes him scale much more nicely into late-game.
He still retains his heal and 80% steroid.
