Introduction

Wazzup summoners?

My name is Radagastical and I'm here to give you a guide on Xerath, the Magus Ascendent.
He kicks anyone's butt as long as there're minions to stand behind, and you have to have skill shots DOWN to own this champion.
With some work, he can hecka carry, I've seen it many a time.

Runes

I'm not great at rune pages, but I know what you want in a Xerath.
AP all the way, with some runes in MR and health and mana regen.
This will help you take down your opponent without ganks, and kick ashe without taking sass!


Guide Top

Masteries

Masteries are basically the same as runes, but more based around those itsy bitsy points of AP, as well as the cookie buff.

I mean, who doesn't like cookies?

Items

Your gonna want pretty standard AP mage stuff with Xerath, just cuz he's not THAT different from the other mages. He does have some of the most starting AP in the game, so take advantage of that. Zz'rot portal is actually quite amazing if you place it strategically, and keep it hidden. It lasts FOREVER and shoots friggen void minions EVERYWHERE.

Skill Sequence

Always always always always max the poke (i.e the q) on traditional mid laners first. Get 4 points in his q, and 2 in his w, cuz then you can take out entire waves of caster creeps. He's got crazy mana sustain, so don't worry to use spells constantly.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

Poke
Stun
Slow
Being the Magus Ascendent
Crazy ult and ability range

Cons:

Sooo squishy
Need to be an expert with skillshots
Without mana/wards/minions he's a goner
