Hi guys. My name is trashy and this is my first build at MOBAFire. As you can see this is a Xerath build is will hope it help to you to make awesome kills with him. (:
Quick Review (Pros/Cons)
- He looks awesome (:
- His abilities are very strong
- You can create a lot of varition of combos
- He good for close and far battle
- If you want you can tank a turrent alone at level 18 ;)
- At the beginning he is very useless
- He's mana regen is sucks ://
- He's ability power is nonsense
- If you hit a wrong button or just a missed an ability you died
- He's cooldown on his abilities is so high
Quick Review No. 2 (Abilities)
Xerath has a lot of fantastic abilities. What are these?:
Passive - This ability is allow you to convert 15% of his Ability Power to Armor.
Q - This spell is the most useable ability of Xerath. This spell is good for everything. For farming the minions, farming monsters and for killing champs. If you can use this spell you win the battle.
LOCUS OF POWER
W - This spell is good for killing enemies in the Fog of War. This is very good when u are wants to defend your tower. At the right moment this spell can be you secret weapon for the victory.
E - Without this ability Xerath is nothing. All of your combos is base on this spell. Also i like this spell because this is a burst ability. So if you pointed the enemy you can't missed it.
R - This spell a "Triple Trouble". When you shooted all of your spells then comes your Ultimate Ability. At the 3rd use the enemy is dead. If it isn't then, if it close to you Arcanopulse, if it far from you Locus of Power and after Arcanopulse.
When I made my build my hardest thing was to create a good rune selection for Xerath. I wanted to take him Ability Power, Cooldown Reduction, Magic Penetration, Mana and Ability Power per Level. But my finest runebuild is the next:
Mark of Insight
Magic Peneration 0.95
This allow to him more Magic Penetration which is INDISPENSABLE for Xerath.
This and his Locus of Power spell can make a very deadly combo for those champs who are wanted to run away from you.
Seal of Focus
Cooldown Reduction 0.29
Cooldown is very usefull for all Mage type champion includes Xerath too.
Glyph of Potency
Ability Power 0.99
He is a Mage. He wants Ability Power. Clear ..
Quintessence of Potency
Ability Power 4.95
I also sad. He is a Mage ..
This is a little hybrid build but all of my attempts this was the best.
The Rod of Ages is very powerfull at Xerath's hand.
Sorcerer's Shoes and the other is the Ionian Boots of Lucidity. It's optional. If you like to shoot bigs but not very often you best choose the Sorcerer's Shoes. But if you want to shoot rapidly than the Ionian Boots of Lucidity is better.
I like this item because this give you anything what you want. Ability Power, Mana Reg and Cooldown Reduction.
This is the best item for all of those champs who wants ability power. I love Mejai's Soulstealer but this item is only good when you are play very well with Xerath. If you just trying or you are at the learning phase with the Magus Ascendent than the Void Staff is better. If you are so ATOM with him than you can start stacking with Mejai's.
In the end for Xerath is very usefull this item because it's spell vamp and ability power. Just some plus the attack damage and life steal what this item also give to you.
The first question is in your mid is: Why take this idiot this item to the end of the build ?? Well.. The answer is because i dont like this item. I don't know why but the I think to stack is more inportant.
My four favourite Summoner Spells is ..
This spell is very amazing for escaping. I love this spell..
That spell is my second favourite spell. This is a very usefull ability for the first blood and for other kills.
For other champs this Summoner Spell is very bad idea at mid. But for Xerath is very usefull. For example when the enemy is going to escape take an Exhaust to him, than Locus of Power and if he is close to you Mage Chain and after Arcanopulse or just Arcanopulse.
This spell is very good for the beginning of the match but after is useless. This can be good for in Mid for the long farming but thats all.
The smallest combos isMage Chain andArcanopulse. Is also stuns the enemy. Than you can just hit the enemy with your autoattack.
If you wanna defend your turret in mid than go to the turret.Locus of Power andArcanopulse. If there enemy than inLocus of Power shoot aMage Chain thanArcanopulse and when it is stunned also inLocus of Power shoot threeArcane Barrage to him.
This was my first build for Xerath. I hope I will help to use him and get a lot kill (: If you have any question for the build or with other problems you can send me a message.
