Yes, really.

Very rare situations will call for merc treads IMO on xin especially. If im jungling, swifties are preferred for me.

If you want the movespeed, why not Mobos?

I guess he probably wants the reduced slow effectiveness + extra speed so he can land his third talon strike easier?

I dunno, just trying to figure TC out.

I like mobility, dont get me wrong... But you really dont need them on Xin with his pretty low CD dash.

The reduced slow effectiveness is awesome.

I really do think swifties are underrated.

And yes, they make landing every hit of 3 talon a lot easier. Mobility dont provide an advantage like this.

This looks like a good build on Xin. I'll probably try it soon.

And about Mobos, the bonus movement is lost upon taking damage, so swiftness or mercs is usually better unless you're like Rammus, Hecarim, or just really tanky.

Why do people buy Mallet on Xin lol.

Garbage item when he already has a gapcloser + aoe slow and a knockup.

all on a short cooldown

Anyway seems like a fine build except for the mallet. Mallet sucks, seriously.

Well I just like phage early on for a little more damage and health combined. I dont really know what else to replace it with? Black cleaver? But it doesnt build into even more health like frozen mallet does. Also BC takes longer to produce the combination of health + damage.
