At the hotfix 12.13b of League of Legends, Xayah Bang became a “hot-pick” when completely “above” compared to other lineups.

Fast 8 (Get to level 8 in the fastest way possible)
DTCL in patch 12.13 seems to be the dominance of the “mage army”, when a match with up to 3 or 4 players is directed to this lineup. However, another “power” is the guild Xayah which is also being favored by the “top players”.
Realizing the great power of “Mage”, Riot has released a hotfix to “lightly” reduce the strength of this squad. Specifically:
Vladimir: Fixed the 20 mana “error”.
Nami: Total mana increased from 25/75 => 50/90.
Ryze: Skill damage ratio reduced.
Thanks to that, Xayah Cuong Long – Guild returned by ensuring the condition to enter the top 4 when “comprehensive craft”. The resistance and annoying control effects from Ornn, Shen or Hecarim create a “free” time for Xayah, Talon as “salad” for the opponent. In addition, Xayah is always the first choice to take the position to deal damage to the whole team.
Here, Game4V gives the suggested direction for this lineup:
Building Xayah – Guild squad:
Equip and Upgrade the Dragon God:
Regarding equipment, priority should be given to picking up “core” items for Xayah first, the priority items are Guinsoo’s Rageblade, Giant Slayer, the last item should be the Alchemy Khan or if you want to “fight” more it can be the Death Sword.
Next, the typical resistance items in the Mage “meta” such as Dragon Claw, Stone Armor Animal Statue are indispensable. In addition, Zeke Storm Capacitor to increase Xayah’s strength is not a bad choice.
Regarding upgrading the god dragon, because the lineup is inclined around the Xayah girl, the cores that help increase damage like Silver Arrow, True Fire are very suitable. In addition, some cores like Guild Forge, Pandora’s Box will help a lot in choosing items for the whole squad.
Stages in the game:
Early game stage:
In the first round of the market, prioritize the Wooden Bow and BF Sword to complete the damage items first. Catch 2 star generals to be able to keep health because this is a squad that needs to be “fast” 8.
It is possible to “def” with many different cards, but the above formation is the most reasonable because it is possible to own the Guild generals early.
At this point, you need to “optimize” the items that can be paired to keep the blood. This is a rather “weak” stage of the squad, because the generals in the squad are mostly 4 money, so it is quite difficult to get out early.
Lightly roll at lv6 with the upper dragon to earn yourself Varus 2 stars and pawn Xayah. With this lineup, you can get to 8 early on round 4.2 or 4.5 and perfect your late game lineup.
“Spread” money to earn mainstays like Ornn, 2-star Xayah and complete the strongest lineup.
Complete at level 8, if you are lucky you can get all 2 stars easily. Then, if possible, go up to 9 with Bard which will trigger more Clan markers and great crowd control. A foot in the top 4 is no longer too difficult for you.
The squad with Xayah Guild as the main, needs Fast 8 so it requires a lot of blood retention in the early and mid game, and the “subtlety” in the use of gold. Game4V recommends that you consider in choosing this “Miss Long Duong Qua” lineup. And once you have mastered your ranking points will increase rapidly, please “spam” this squad before Riot “eyes” on it.
