Xin Zhao position

Xin Zhao Wild Rift is a fighter and tank when needed. With high damage ready to rush into the middle of the enemy team and break the formation with a powerful ultimate. Thanks to his mutant ability Xin Zhao is very useful for ganks that require quick access to the target.

The most suitable position for Xin Zhao Wild Rift is in the Jungle. Going to the jungle doesn't lose any blood, being a champion that's too bad solo 1-1 doesn't get bored of anyone
