It depends, imo. If you already have a great intiator, then build more damage. If your team is lacking one, build defenses and be the initiator. Dive a squishy and ult to spread everyone out.
I personally like Xin to be a counter intiator though. Let their team come in first and ult to spread them all out for your team to pick them off one by one. It works nicely when you have assassins or otherwise heavy bursters.
I'm only 1285 elo, but this is my xin build (he is one of my main junglers)
machete 5 pots madreds boots phage wriggles frozen mallet/sunfire cape (i get these both but sometimes in different order depending on what is going on) then depending on team needs, if we need a tank, i'll get warmogs and then atmas impaler, sometimes wit's end. there are a lot of good items, and the recommended builds are better than they were before. just try it out!
