What is the best way to kill thugs as Xian?
I am playing as Xian. Is there a way to kill thugs without being hit by it? It seems to take 10-15 weapon throws to kill the thug as Xian. Is there a better way to kill it?

I'm also playing as Xian and here's my tactic - Always opt for bladed weapons with Thugs. Rather than charging in and taking a bunch of erratic swings, try to aim directly for the upper arms. If you take a moment to decide where to swing you can usually amputate his arm with just one hit. Repeat on the other side as well. Now the only thing that you have to watch out for is his bite. Try to time the rest of your advances between these attacks and it shouldn't take long to kill him at all - maybe 4 or 5 swings depending on where you hit him.
Also, remember that you always have your fury mode as well (if you've opted to put skill points in that tree). Fury works great with Thugs and will kill them in very few hits. Just make sure to time your attacks correctly because you can still get knocked down by his punches.
