Hi guys I am main Xerath and this is my first guide.
I am German so my English isn't that good but i try my best.
So pls rate and rock the midlane with this guide.
Pros / Cons
Not that much mana problems with passive
Very good late game scaling (w,q might oneshot)
No chances against champs that have hughe burst + gapcloser. (Zed)
At the beginning you hardly hit your ults.
Creeping / Jungling
In Lane, use your q only to hit minions until you got Morellonomicon.
Q takes so much mana and it isn't worth the damage in Comparrison.
After that you can almost kill the mage minions with q and later on it is just q w and the wave is gone.
When fights happen, try to stay as far back as possible or bring a wall between you and the enemies. Your damage output is ridicoulesly high in the mid/late/super lategame.
Try not to waste your stun unless you can oneshot a carry or you have to use it to flee.
VERY IMPORTANT if somone uses Zhonyas against you, he is going to die. Use w 0,5 seconds before it ends and then double press q. He should be dead then.
