Threats & Synergies
You can never land a stun because of how his windwall works, and he can dash away from any skill shot you try to get him with. Also it is very easy for him to close the gap and get in your face which is Xeraths weakness.
Her ult can be annoying but you should be able to manage. If she can charm you, you can stun her.
All this lane matchup is both people killing minions as fast as you can.
Not much of a threat for you, you both will try to clear minions fast. If he roams you can never catch up but you can help with your ultimate.
She has no range to contest you, and you can poke her out. However, every 5 min or so she can flash combo you, and her jungler will also be there to get you. Keep track of her flash timing as best you can.
He can poke you pretty good, but you can poke him easily.
She can close the gap and do massive damage but you can shove the wave on her from a safe distance so you should be ok.
He is a little annoying, protobelt (a common item on him) makes him tanky and can close the gap easily on you. be aware of him casting his stun from the cover of a side bush.
Easy to defeat early game, but the pressure is on you to stomp him or he will stomp you and your whole team.
Very easy, Will just be clearing waves. your poke is superior.
Will just be shoving waves, he has bad mobility so if you want to poke and ult him it's easy.
Like an range vs melee match up poke her as much as you can. her damage is good though
Some people find her hard, but I always have an easy time against her. Her weakness getting shoved, which is your strength. If she dashes on you try to be in a situation where its a straight line so your stun will hit even if she teleports back.
You out range her and can shove minions better.
Mid and Late game be aware. But straight up laning she is not that bad, you can also out shove her. generally being good at dodging skill shots will factor in heavily. Her ult makes it easy to land your ult or stun.
Pre 6 you should try to bully him as much as you can, and get stopwatch/hourglass. after he is 6 he can pretty much 1 shot you. hold stun since he can dodge it easily.
Just a wave shove lane, you shove lane better but Twisted Fate can roam better. Use ult to help when you can.
Another wave shoving match up. You can pop his spell shield often especially with Ludens. Be aware of flash ult Malz plus a jungler gank.
Learning how to dodge his shurikens is a must. Remember if he ults you he will always appear right behind you, so you can get a easy stun. If you zhonyas as he is ulting you can avoid the death mark, spin damage, and damage amplification entirely.
Bully him early as you out range him. Even late game when he becomes powerful you can take him out of a fight at a very safe distance.
Just shove the lane. Early game if she does combo you and uses ult barrier will save you. Later on you can zhonyas the combo. or banshees will protect you.
