Do any of you like playing Xin Zhao? He’s actually a pretty cool champion to play. We’re making Xin Zhao champion of the week this time because of his new and awesome Dragonslayer skin which was just released recently. ¬†We think this is his coolest skin so far yo. This article is intended not to promote the skin but it’s actually a reminder for everyone that HEY.. this champion exists and you should try playing him.

Why? Well, if you’re all like me, Xin Zhao is never on my radar as a champion I want to play. There’s no particular reason not to play him really, it’s just that if I go jungle, I’m usually focused on champions like Rengar, Kha’Zix or Graves (meta champions). Once in a while you’ll probably see him being played but that’s about it.

I don’t know about you guys but every single time I see Xin Zhao, he will always remind me of this guy up here, Zhao Yun from Dynasty Warriors. Actually, they share the same characteristics you know. A skilled warrior who is honorable, just and has extreme skills with a bloody spear.

Have a read at his lore down below… If you’ve played Dynastry Warrior before, you’re probably gonna love playing this champ cos it’s like going down memory lane =)

The Lore of Xin Zhao

”Death is inevitable, one can only avoid defeat.”

Whenever Jarvan III, the king of Demacia, delivers one of his rallying speeches from the glinting marble balcony atop the Royal Palace, Xin Zhao is at his side. Coined the Seneschal of Demacia, Xin Zhao is the personal steward of the Lightshield Dynasty. His enigmatic, silent vigil has led to an abundance of conjecture concerning his ”secret life” and origins. Whether it’s ”Zaun double-agent” tendered at the dinner table or ”indebted rune mage” mused in the editorials of the ”Demacian Constant,” Xin Zhao betrays no hints to sate the curiosity of the masses… for good reason.

Years ago, Noxus was renowned for a spectacle called The Fleshing. It was a gladiatorial event with a cruel twist: as a fighter won matches, his number of opponents (generally prisoners of war) fought simultaneously would increase. This meant eventual death for every contender, but with unparalleled glory. Xin Zhao, known then as Viscero, was slated to face 300 soldiers, nearly six times the previous record. This was clearly meant to be his final match.

Jarvan II, hearing of this unprecedented feat, infiltrated the arena to offer him an alternative: serve Demacia and punish those who ultimately sentence him to death in exchange for his freedom. Xin Zhao accepted, astonished that a king would risk his own life on his behalf. Under the cover of a prearranged Demacian assault on Noxus, Jarvan liberated Xin Zhao and his 300 opponents. During their retreat, Xin Zhao took a poisoned dart meant for Jarvan. This act of loyalty, from a man who vowed no allegiance, earned Xin Zhao a spot at his side until the day the king died.

Now in the service of his son, Jarvan III, Xin Zhao continues to fight for his adopted country and honor the legacy of the man who gave purpose to his life.
