Starting with boots, long sword and pots, I go grez's then frozen mallet. I choose my boot upgrade depending on situation, either berserker grieves or ninja tabi. I max E and W together with a point in q for utility. My xin record isn't so great tho. Still learning to play him myself. Seems like the best thing to do is try to do as much damage as you can before they escape or get you focused down.

I could see that, I was thinking of the slow that frozen mallet provides. Hopefully someone more experienced pops by, because I'd be interested to see what they have to say.

I wanna thow it out there that I was the one who started that thread Wodenedow linked and I've had good luck with it.

My only advice is that depending on who you're up against it's simply not enough damage. It's just not. I've gone to Hydra or Blade of the Forgotten King or even IE to try and keep up damage wise. I honestly haven't had a solution I like exactly, but I thought I'd offer my experiences.

wriggles > merc/tabis > botrk

i would then just build randuins either after botrk or inbetween it, if you are vsing a high ad comp.

interesting reading, although im still at a loss why the suggestions from the big guys doesnt include AS items, seems like xins bread & butter is AS. What am i missing?

Xin has an AS steroid on a fairly low cooldown, and his 3 talon is an auto-attack reset, which means he scales much better with damage. AS is nice, but not top priority.

Thanks for the links and replies. When I was getting smacked down by Xin on SR it always seemed to me like he was a burst damage kind o guy. Although the lifesteal/AS builds seem pretty fierce on TT. In what situations would you lean one way or the other? Or should you leave the AS to Trynd?
