Abilites


| Passive - Mana Surge |
Every 12 seconds, Xerath's next basic attack will restore Mana. The amount of Mana restored is doubled if the attack target is a champion.

| Q - Arcanopulse |
Begin Charging: Xerath begins charging an arcane beam, slowing himself gradually up to 50%.
Release: Xerath fires the beam, dealing magic damage. The range increases with time charged.

| W - Eye of Destruction |
Xerath calls down a blast of arcane energy, dealing magic damage and slowing them by 25% for 2.5 seconds. Enemies in the center take more magic damage and are slowed by 60-80%, decaying over the same duration.

| E - Shocking Orb |
Xerath fires an orb of raw magic, stunning the first enemy hit for up to 0.75−2.25 seconds depending on distance travelled, and dealing magic damage.

| R - Rite of the Arcane |
Xerath ascends to his true form and channels for 10 seconds. During this time he may Recast 3 / 4 / 5 times.
Recast: Xerath launches a magical artillery, dealing magic damage.
Combos / Tricks
Basic Lane Poke

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!
It will launch the spell from the place you flashed to.
Playstyle
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!
