Introduction
Hey, I'm Frostbite and this guide is about my Xerath!
I'm an Anivia Main but Xerath is my secondary Champion and always perform well!
In this guide I'm gonna show you how to play him to climb easily in SoloQ!
Xerath in general is a rly safe pick and can be a champion to 1v9 on. If you get fed you can make the game hell for squishy enemies.


These are my stats in Season 9 on one of my dia accs in EUW






You can find me streaming at my TWITCH CHANNEL. Ask questions if you have any!

Combos / Tricks Back to Top
Lane Poke 1
W Eye of Destruction > Q Arcanopulse

The slow of your W makes it easier for you to hit your Q.



General Combo
E Shocking Orb > W Eye of Destruction > Q Arcanopulse

If your E lands, just follow up with W and Q for maximum burst



No Vision?
R Eye of Destruction or W Eye of Destruction

Both Abilities give you vision around the Ability Area!



Flash Combos
E Shocking Orb > Flash OR Q Arcanopulse > Flash

Both can be used to surprise your enemy. They cant react to those in time.
Just cast those Abilities and Flash directly after the cast!
Playstyle Back to Top
IN LANE

Try to focus on farming the wave with Arcanopulse and Eye of Destruction. While doing so always try to hit the enemy mid to proc Manaflow Band and Arcane Comet. Remember to Autoattack the enemy laner to get more mana from Mana Surge.
Always ward the river, since youre immobile and your spells make u push automatically.



MID GAME

Waveclear with Arcanopulse and Eye of Destruction. Poke as much as u can with your abilities before any teamfight happens, so u have an advantage in them. Try to move in river and assist your top/bot with Rite of the Arcane.



LATE GAME

Stay in the backline while teamfighting! Try to hit enemy carries with your poke and wait for CC from your team to guarantee your spells to hit.
If you get fed you will 2-shot enemies with Arcanopulse. If you get people to <50% hp you can follow up with Rite of the Arcane and finish them off.



IN GENERAL

Play safe early game/ward river!
Poke enemies with Arcanopulse and Eye of Destruction!
Abuse your insane range!
Stay in the backline while teamfighting!
Try to catch people with your E > W > Q > R combos!
