How to play

  1. You build Lethality and wait for a moment to strike enemy squishes.
  2. Snowball / Mark is a crucial cooldown for playing this build. Do not waste it or even wait to hit the enemy at point-blank range to ensure hit (so you follow them, if they Flash).
  3. If an enemy team is full of tanks or bruisers, rush Serylda's Grudge or even Lord Dominik's Regards early (sometimes even #2). Black Cleaver is also an alternative. The key is to adapt to the enemy team.
  4. This build revolves around Hail of Blades and Lethality short bursts of damage.

Tips and Tricks

General
  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!)
Riot
  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.
