so after the latest patch, i hit level 10 and played a couple games with xin zhao, as he is my main. after a couple days of testing, i found my performance has dramatically dropped. it got to the point where i couldn't beat a twitch (who was the same level and had a **** build) in a 1v1 fight in the middle of the jungle. since i don't really pay attention to the stats and stuff, did he get nerfed bad or is there just a huge jump in skill level at level 10?

if he was using a set of tier 2 runes, and you had nothing, that's a slight advantage for him. I don't know the specifics (such as what items you had, what he had, what level you both were, etc), but xin should normally beat twitch.

Yeah this is due to runes.If he had a full set of runes then yeah he's going to beat you. Xin is not under powered xin is still amazing.

You're only level 10. You're not going to have a full understanding of how well champs stack up until much much later.

For example, you build a warmogs and a archangels on Xin. Archangels is a really bad item for Xin and warmogs isn't the best. Consider grabbing a phage and turning it into a frozen mallet or trinity force instead of the warmogs. The attack speed/health/sheen proc of Tri force really syncs well with Xin's playing style since he heals every three hits, initiates with his spells and is a melee character.

Hope this helps. Enjoy playing.

see, i build frozen trinity force + youmu's ghostblade + randuin's + berserker greaves/mercury treads, which is a pretty solid build. but yeah, he must have beat me with runes or some insane farming cuz we were both lvl 18.

For my Xin, I build 2 phantom, 2 bloodthirsters, and Ninja Tabi. If I get enough money, I get an infinity's edge. Is that a bad build?
