Barely Viable! Xerath ADC (Off-Meta Troll Pick Guide)

By fictitiousfig
Ayo! I'm fictitiousfig (NA), silver 4 xerath main with a questionable winrate and even more questionable picks! I used to play annie jungle back in the day, and ever since I won a single game with it, I've been preaching it as a viable pick. Absolutely nothing about that has changed.

Now that we've established that I'm a god at this game, let me explain to you why one of my favorite AD carries is absolutely not Xerath because this is a horrible idea. For starters, he's designed to almost never be in auto range of his enemies. If he is, it should only be to proc his passive once and is a huge risk. This build relies on you continually being in auto range of your enemies and almost entirely ignoring your abilities.

It should also be noted that doing this with randoms, particularly randoms with sticks up their butts, is a terrible idea. For ideal performance, attempt in beginner bots or practice tool. Or don't attempt, up to you.

I've managed to achieve a 33% wr with this solely by having my friends carry me, but you WILL be useless when doing this, I'm sorry to say. Still in shock at that one game I went 5/3/12 doing this, but that's an outlier and shouldn't be counted.

(One way that this can also work is, if you start ad, killing the enemy bot could tilt them so much they completely throw and/or dc, allowing you to win! Trust me, it's worked once before)
