Just picked up Xin Zhao in Wild Rift and need a few pointers? Don't worry, all you need to do is read our guide on the Seneschal of Demacia and you'll be a master of the jungle in no time at all.
Xin Zhao can charge up the Conqueror rune very quickly when he engages onto a target, providing you with some very easy offensives bonuses without any investment cost at all.
In red, you should opt for Brutal instead of a third Hunter rune. Essentially, Xin is a great – if not the best – Jungler during the few first levels. It's often a good idea to play to your strengths and go after the enemy Jungler on their side of hte map during this point in the game.
In green and blue, we've opted for the Hunter set, as they allow you to snowball off of successful ganks, which are Xin's bread and butter.
Here's the best skill order for Xin. Max out his abilities in the following order, but be sure to pick up his ultimate whenever you can.
Attention: Pay close attention to the spells you learn during your first few level. Start with Audacious Charge, then put a point in Three Talon Strike, though you should always max out Wind Becomes Lighting before anything else.

Tips and Tricks
