So, you like Xerath huh? Well fun fact. Did you know that Using GOS and a little bit of your brain can enable you to reach Diamond-master’s Elo with ease? All you must do Is play Xerath lol.
So, a key aspect of playing most champions tends to be the runes you end up using. Xerath has several different playstyles but I will be covering a slightly less known rune page (unless you go onto the Xerath reddit)
- Cheap Shot
- Eye Ball Collection
- Ravenous Hunter
- Gathering Storm
As you can see these runes may look a tad strange but trust me. If we consider that you will rarely miss skill or ulti shot's you can easily proc electrocute and destroy an enemy. This also has the advantage of putting people of guard as not many people think a sane person would bring domination as their main tree for Xerath.
Now onto the Pro's and Cons of being a Xerath Player
- High Damage
- Great Scaling
- Great Range
- Pretty Decent CC
Skill Shot Reliant
- Tends to be focused in team fight's.
- People will flame you when you beat them
Know. We can look at his abilities.
Q-Arcanopulse. A long-range beam that goes through multiple target's. Your main source of DMG.
W- Eye of Destruction. A semi long range AOE attack that slows targets near the center of the blast.
E- Shocking Orb. A ranged stun that stuns the longer it flies for. Useful to get a few AA's on a target or stop them from escaping. Can also be a anti Ganking tool.
R - Rite of the Arcane. An artillery ultimate that has 3 blasts but increases to 5 at rank 16. They deal high DMG and it has insane range. Great for escaping enemies or engaging
Now your script will most likely combo all this which will result in you kicking ass. Combine that with the Elec proc with all your abilities and your enemy will rage quite often.
Now Matchups is a common discussion with Xerath players as sometimes they feed miserably due to ‘trick counters’ What I mean by this is they are too afraid of things like yas etc, so they hide behind tower and end up feeding yas. My advice for this is to pretty much poke them till low than ulti. If your trendy you could include a Few AA’s too.
In terms of building pretty much your standard AP items will fare well. Stuff like rabadons morellicon always work and I recommend taking a void staff if they have a tank **** on their team.
This concludes my guide. I hope you enjoyed reading and feel free to suggest future guides for me to do.
