General info

This comp uses the Dark Star synergy to beef up Jhin and Xerath in the late game to deal immense damage. Xerath 2 star with a complete team can carry late game, it's just about getting there.

When to make

Dark Stars struggle early game, so think of this comp as a potential pivot if you find an early Jhin or even an early Xerath. You can pivot out of early game units like vanguards or space pirates.

Game plan
Early game

Jarvan and Mordekaiser make for a solid frontline, and Caitlyn provides decent early game damage.

Mid game

In the midgame, you are just trying to transition into 6 Dark Stars. If you can't find all 6, make use of your other synergies like protector or vanguard to fill your team.

Additional comp tips
  • Jhin will be the most consistent carry of this team, so prioritize his items first. With at least 2 items, you can stabilize while trying to build toward Xerath items.
  • Dark Stars have a weak early game, so use strong early units like Space Pirates or Vanguards and transition into Dark Stars in the late game.
