Hey folks, welcome to my Xbalanque guide! This is my first guide, so any help is greatly appreciated. This build is mainly for Joust, Conquest, and Siege. Feel free to try it in Arena/Assault, but this is not made for those game-modes. Anyways, lets get started!
[*] Insanely High Basic Attack Damage
[*] Great Attack Speed
[*] AoE Early Game
[*] Squishy Without Lifesteal
[*] 2 and 3 can be cancelled by enemies
[*] Low Mana
First, go with a Ninja Tabi. This gives movement speed to escape ADC's, Attack Speed to go with his 1, and physical power. All around nice item.
Next, go for Devourer's Gauntlet. It's passive stacks very well with Xbal's passive, and with the early lifesteal, it's an absolute must.
Mid-Game grab Odysseus' Bow, as it gives attack speed to build Gauntlet stacks, and it helps with crits.
After that, get The Executioner. Attack Speed again will boost his 1 even further, and the passive is AMAZING with his ult and 1. This will make your character a feared death machine when stacked with previous items.
Stay tuned, we're almost done! Rage is one of your last items. It's passive will keep crit hits coming, especially with your current attack (See, Odysseus' Bow) speed. Crit hits will also help with your Lifesteal, and that's always good.
Last but DEFINITELY not least, Deathbringer is making an appearance! Great physical power, even better Passive, and don't forget the aforementioned Lifesteal. Use your 1 a/o ult, and your enemies will be running around like headless chickens.
Xbalanque's passive is Dead of Night. With every god kill he gets, his physical power will increase by 5. Max of 6 stacks.
Xbalanque's first skill is Branching Bolas. This buffs all basic attacks by a set amount of damage per upgrade, and makes his basic attacks hit up to 2 enemies within 30 units of the initial target take 30% of the basic attack (On-Hit effects do not apply to 2nd and 3rd hits) This does drain mana, but will secure kills easily. Main ability.
Xbalanque's second skill is Poison Darts. This ability fires 10 darts in a sweeping motion from right to left. A target can be hit by up to 3 darts, with the 2nd and 3rd doing 30% damage. These darts do DoT and slow enemies. Sweep your mouse to the right to concentrate the darts on one target, or to the left for a spiraling shot.
Xbalanque's third skill will be Rising Jaguar. He leaps up, spraying darts at all enemies in the radius. This gives CC immunity while in the air, BUT, he can still be hit and slowed,stunned, etc. while on the ground. If you hit a target that you poisoned, this ability does 20% more damage to them. Use this to escape, clear groups, or get nice damage on poisoned gods.
Finally. his Ultimate. Darkest of Nights. This shrouds all enemies in the night, making their screens black whilst increasing your basic attack radius by 40ft and increasing your movement speed. All enemies moving when this ability ends are stunned. Use this assist teammates, turn teamfights around, or chase targets.
Xbalanque is an amazing AA-Based Hunter. Use him right, and you'll emerge feeling like a jaguar amongst mice. (Pardon the pun)
Thank you for reading my guide, as this is my first guide, please leave suggestions as of how to improve it. (I know coding would help greatly) With all said and done, goodbye!
