Threats & Synergies
Playing against GP is fairly easy. Use your ranged AA to destroy his barrels. Wait for him to use his W, then hit him with your E and burst him down
Not many people play Cassio top, but it should be still fairly easy. Make sure to avoid her W and her Q. To poke her use your W 1st to slow her down then hit her with your Q
Galio is not that bad of a match up against Xerath. Sure he has a MR shield but that will not stop Xerath. Just poke him down from the far. When he E's onto you just stun him with your E and you should be fine
Any ADC will have problem against Xerath. When ever they will try to get close to you just E them and burst them down
Garen is slightly annoying, because of his passive regen. Try to constantly poke him and don't let him close to farm and you should be fine
Let Renekton push to your tower, because when you try to poke him down while farming won't be that easy. When he uses his 1st dash only slow him with your W, after he uses his 2nd dash stun him.
Poke her down from the start. Try rushing magic pen. against Riven since she will rush Hex-Drinker.
Never use your R or E when he is still on his mount, he can easily survive.
Yasuo is sometimes hard to hit because he can just E all over the place but you have a little advantage. As many people might not know, Xerath's Q can go thru Yasuo's W. Never use your E on Yasuo when he has Windwall up
I just hate Fizz, he can dodge almost everything with his Q and E. Don't come close because of his high W burst. When he hits 6 try to play super careful and watch his movements, you'll never know when he will use his R. The best thing to do is poking him down from the start and getting a few more ganks
