Guide to Countering Xin Zhao as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Xin Zhao

Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.

Xin Zhao is a powerful initiator with both his charge and ultimate dealing damage to all units around him. Try having your team stay spread out until he's used his ultimate.
