How it works

  1. You play as Xin Zhao Grasp.
  2. Your build is survivability oriented. With some damage and tons of HP and defense.
  3. You auto attack a lot.

How to play

  1. As Xin Zhao playing Grasp build - you need ot adapt to an enemy team and to the game! Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  2. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks

  1. Always keep auto attacking - this gives you great sustain, especially early on.
  2. Always count your Q attacks. You can attack minions twice, then E (combined with Flash) and knock unsuspecting enemies up!
  3. Combo #1: You can cast W and Flash. It works forward/backward and sideways. This lets you get some cool kills.
  4. Combo #2: You can cast W, Flash then use E to reach. That's a super cool combo that lets you catch people off guard and engage from miles away.
  5. Combo #3: You can cast R, then Flash. This way you do some surprise damage, or even throw enemies into your team if used properly (keep track of who is Challenged!)
  1. Xin Zhao is a great initiator to combat. Lead the front to start a fight and use your ultimate to do the most damage possible.
  2. Try to position yourself so your ultimate's knockback is most effective.
