This is my first guide so please bear with me. This is the build I prefer for Xing Tian and is the order I used. However, every match is going to develop differently and may call for a different orderorder. Also I know there's a lack of penetrating which I included in the substitutions. I strongly recommend the sash being the first thing you get in order to start working on your stacks early and keeping the ethereal staff for the passive. It can take a bit too get the hang of but I used Xing Tian to manipulate the flow of battle for my allies.

Early game, Know yourself

It's important to understand that you are tanky you are not invincible and taking on more then one God at a time will lead to your probable demise. Know that you are slow so don't venture far from allies. Keep in front of your allies just enough so you can keep the enemy focused on you while your allies can still get hours in. This will also allow you to pull back easily and let your allies finish off what ever gods are still in the fight. You should be keeping constant awareness of the battlefield and keeping the enemy focused on you until you have to pull back.

Mid game, know thy enemy

By now you should have a decent stack from the warlocks sash and most of your items. You'll find yourself with a lot of health which means power from the ethereal staff. The enemy gods have usually developed a method of attack now that they use and repeat. Watch for this notice which enemy gods are working together and note there typical approach, then dive in and disrupt, save your ultimate for last and throw whoever you can catch in to your allies. You are on a team of they get the kill and you the assist that's fine, the team for the kill. I need to elaborate on this I feel because I made the mistake a couple times of trying to finish off gods is maimed. It was damn near futile, even when getting the kills I found my self weak enough for fresh enemies to easily pick me off. However settling for the assist allowed me to stay in battle longer kept my level equal if not higher then my allies not to mention the obvious benefit of keeping your allies leveled up to you.

Late game, find victory in a hundred battles

By now you should be a complete and utter menace to the enemy gods. Early late game you may be lacking a bit while the enemy gods have finished their builds and yours is not quite complete so stick to similar methods that you did early game. Once your build is complete you will easily "Find victory in a hundred battles." Your health will be huge and your power will break enemies easily. The "Puny gods" on the enemy team will find you difficult to bring down even if you alone stand against three skilled gods. This being said do not forget yourself or the enemy. Bring your allies to ensure victory. Assassins and hunters will fail easily to your blows however no matter how much it seems you're a walking Pantheon remember you're not. This goes with saying for any god but once this build is complete it is very very easy to feel a falls sense of security. With your allies you will be unstoppable. WITH YOUR ALLIES.
