I've played A LOT of matches with this character- tried out all kinds of builds . I put the best one together for you guys.

Xayah is a champion who you can build a lot of things with, and customize your own build as you play more and more games with her . That's one of my favourite things about her.
Back to Top

The Champion as a whole.

Xayah is a mobile AD carry with high damage and crit scalings .
She also does a lot of Damage from Abilites.
Great synergy with Rakan.
If you learn how to hit those Feather's properly and position yourself ; she is very, VERY rewarding.AND extremely fun.Especially with Rakan.
Back to Top


Passive: INNATE :After casting an ability, Xayah's next 3 basic attacks strike all enemies along their path, dealing 100% damage to her main target and 50% pass-through damage to other enemies. At her maximum attack range, a Feather will be left in the ground for 6 seconds.
LOVER'S LEAP: If either Xayah or Rakan Rakan is recalling, the other may move nearby and activate their own recall to join them. Both reach base at the time of which the initiator's recall ends.

Her passive can be very much used as poke and lanepush. Kinda hard at first to hit those high range Feathers tho.You gotta get good at it.
Lover's Leap is just another great addition if you have Rakan on your team . Can come in handy very often.

Q : DOUBLE DAGGERS :ACTIVE : After a brief wind-up, Xayah hurls two feather-blades in quick succession in the target direction, and leaving 2 Feathers on the ground at maximum range.
The feather-blades deal physical damage to all enemies they pass through, reduced to 50% against units beyond the first.

Again , great lanepush and poke with this ability . You can combine it with Passive and E. Really strong.Also , spellshields only block *1* of these Feathers, so you can still have damage on a Champion like Sivir with your Q.

W : DEADLY PLUMAGE: ACTIVE: Xayah surrounds herself with a storm of feathers-blades for 4 seconds, granting her bonus attack speed, 20% increased damage on her attacks, and 30% bonus movement speed for 1.5 seconds whenever she attacks a champion.
BONUS ATTACK SPEED: 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%
If Rakan Rakan is nearby, he will also gain Deadly Plumage, in turn increasing the bonus damage on each of them to 40%.

This is the ability you're going to be maxing last , tho it's still great. Even better if you have Rakan on your team since it has Synergy with him.

E: BLADECALLER : ACTIVE: Xayah recalls all her Feathers, dealing physical damage to enemies they strike on their way toward her, increasing by 0.5% for every 1% of Xayah's Critical Strike Chance. Minions take 50% damage.
「 BASE PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 (+ 60% bonus AD) 」
Each Feather to strike a target deals 10% less damage than the last, with a minimum of 10% damage. Enemies struck by at least 3 Feathers are rooted for 1 second.

Much like a Kalista E , but you have to aim with it . In exchange , you get a Root with it . Very rewarding if you can hit it.

R: FEATHERSTORM :ACTIVE: Xayah leaps into the air, becoming briefly untargetable but still able to move.
After a short delay, she unleashes a volley of feather-blades forward in a cone, dealing physical damage to all enemies struck and leaving a line of 5 Feathers at the end of Featherstorm's maximum range.

Xayah's Ultimate is one of the best Ultimates in the game . Actually , might be the best AD Carry Ultimate. You get Damage , Utility , an Escape ,Combos, AoE . Really nice things to have . Especially on an AD Carry.

Farming / Laning

You can poke a lot in lane while STILL getting CS. You just need to make use of your Passive and position yourself well. Very strong in lane if you can poke and farm together properly.

I go Warlord's Bloodlust because of the movement speed and sustain.
Fervor wouldn't make much sense since you rely on abilities just as much as autoattacks. Warlord's Bloodlust just seems better right now.

[Testing:Thunderlord's Decree,not expecting anything crazy from it.]

I also choose Sorcery instead of Fury because of Q and E Damage.
Dangerous Game to do some sick 1v9 plays ecks dee

Skill Sequence

Team Work

-Stay behind
-Get Runaan's (and RFC) for AoE,% Health damage (and range)
-Use Q,AA,W,AA,AA,AA,E....

Ranked Play

Just be calm , cool , aaaaaand have Rakan or your team .
Honestly , she isn't that strong particularly if she isn't with Rakan (or you don't have a sick duo partner).
I wouldn't risk picking her in Ranked without Rakan. And everyone's gonna pick/ban Rakan and / or Xayah for a few weeks , maybe even months.100%.
Back to Top


Overall , this Champion is really strong and you should play her . Definitely. Even better if you have a duo buddy who picks Rakan .
Hope you learned something from this guide.
Remember ,

never go full ape.
