Xin Zhao

The Seneschal of Demacia

  • Introduction



Xin Zhao is a resolute warrior loyal to the royal family of Demacia. Once condemned to the fighting pits of Noxus, he survived countless gladiatorial bouts. It was not until he faced the forces of King Jarvan III in battle that he decided to relinquish his past life, in favor of serving what he saw as a more honorable cause. Armed with his favored three-talon spear, Xin Zhao now fights for his adopted kingdom, audaciously challenging any foe, no matter the odds.

“Death is inevitable. One can only avoid defeat.”


Passive: Determination

Every third basic attack deals 15 / 25 / 35 / 45% of total AD as bonus physical damage and restores 10-112 (based on level) (+0.1 per attack damage) (+40% of ability power) health.

Three Talon Strike (Q)

Range: 375

Cooldown: 7 / 6.5 / 6 / 5.5 / 5

Mana Cost: 30

Xin Zhao prepares to unleash a fearsome combo, causing his next 3 standard attacks to deal his attack damage plus an additional 20 / 28 / 36 / 44 / 52 (+0.4 per bonus attack damage) as physical damage to enemy targets, with the final attack knocking his opponent into the air. Each strike while active reduces the cooldown of his other skills by one second.

Wind Becomes Lightning (W)

Range: 1000

Cooldown: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 / 8

Mana Cost: 45

Xin Zhao performs two swift strikes over a 0.5-0.4 second period (based on bonus attack speed), the first dealing 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 (+0.3 per attack damage) physical damage to all enemies in an arc and the second dealing 40 / 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 (+0.75 per attack damage) damage and slowing all enemies in a line by 50% for 1.5 seconds.

Each strike deals 50% damage against minions, benefits from 33.3% of Xin Zhao's lifesteal, will stack and apply Determination, and the duration on his other abilities is paused during the effect.

Audacious Charge (E)

Range: 650

Cooldown: 12

Mana Cost: 50

Xin Zhao charges and challenges an enemy. The charge deals 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 (+60% of ability power) magic damage to all nearby enemies and slows them for 30% for 0.5 seconds.

Casting Audacious Charge grants Xin Zhao 40 / 45 / 50 / 55 / 60% attack speed for 5 seconds.

Crescent Guard (R)

Range: 188

Cooldown: 120 / 110 / 100

Mana Cost: 100

Passive: The last enemy champion targeted by Xin Zhao's basic attacks or Audacious Charge is Challenged for 3 seconds.

Active: Xin Zhao sweeps around him, dealing 75 / 150 / 225 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) (+15% of target's current health) physical damage to enemies hit, capped at 600 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage against monsters. Non-Challenged enemies are also knocked back and stunned for 0.75 seconds.

For the next 3 seconds Xin Zhao has Awareness, negating all damage received from enemies 450-units away from him. Basic attacks and other spell casts extend the duration by 0.3 seconds, but the remaining duration cannot exceed 3 seconds.
