Born of royal blood, Li Xin has held on firmly to his belief to put his country first. However, because his father was defeated in a power struggle, he bore the legacy of his father’s hatred and wrath in his heart. Swearing vengeance, he came to the Great Wall alone, obsessed with reclaiming his glory and territories.
As he has to choose between the forces of light and darkness, just where will his sword be pointed at?
Li Xin is one of the most unique fighters in HoK since you need to play around with his form. He has two forms- Revenge and Domination, which have different playstyle. Li Xin is one of those 1v9 heroes in Honor of Kings who can carry the game solo if he gets ahead.

Li Xin’s Voice Line (Dialogues)
|I followed the call to build the Great Wall.|
|I took an oath, and I will see it through.|
|The city of Chang’an shall never forget me.|
|The million stars above the Great Wall are its permanent watch-keepers.|
|The winds of war have enveloped our world…Where are the kings and lords?|
|I am the lord of Chang’an and its rebuilder, should it fall.|
|The hardship of these times will lead us to greatness!|
|The route from Chang’an to the Great Wall… That is where my soul dwells…|
|Where do I belong…?|
|I command here!|
|I do not bow to the Will of Heaven!|
|What a spectacle!|
|Your cluelessness would be entertaining… if it wasn’t so pitiful.|
|Borders are easy to expand but hard to guard.|
|My homeland’s beauty is always in my heart… Yet I am not allowed to see it with my eyes.|
|I wonder if a reincarnated soul has a better understanding of death.|
|Stranger, how can you let your homeland slip from your hands?|
|These places, this food, they don’t belong in a dream, do they?|
|The dreams and wishes from this world shall be passed on.|

|Solitude sharpens my blade…|
|Only the bonfires burning by the Great Wall can calm my yeaning!|
How to play Li Xin?
Here are some tips you must consider to play and master Li Xin in Honor of Kings:
- He is good with slit push since he has damage to 1v1 enemy heroes and movement speed to get out of danger quickly. So, if you reckon you cannot do much in team fights, try to split.
- Try to stay behind and do the damage with your 2nd skill, and if there is a chance you can kill the enemy carry and get out, then go all in on the enemy carry.
- You must learn to camp or hide in the bush strategically and hold and release skills buttons.
- Don’t engage in the teamfight, as Li Xin is not tanky. Instead, select the suitable form and attack from the back row, targetting mage and marksman. During 1v1 Domination form works best.
