Welcome to my first Build here!
Because of my bad english i have to keep this very short!
+ fun to play
+ good farmer
+ Variable to play (mid or lane)
+ tanky vs mele]
+ Action all the time
+ Items are not sooooo important [/color
- squishy vs mage
- hard to play the first couple of times
- dead when u got silenced or stunned
For the second Spell i take Clarity. Especially in the early game, your Mana is always low. Its defenetly the best Spell to choose for Xerath.
Until you reach lvl 6:
W -> E -> Q -> W and then fall back.
You already can cast E after u start W. There is no need to wait.
Ater lvl 6:
W -> Q -> E -> R (3x) (enemy is stunned) then release Locus of Power flash next to the Enemy and then Q again.
Dont try to go in 1 vs 1 fights. You will probably lose.
When you are laning use the high grass to hide and poke the enemy with W -> Q.
If a meele-Champion trys to engange you: E -> Q (he is stunned) and then fall back.
Try to keep one of your enemys at about 50 % health. After you reach lvl 6 you just need to do your full combo to get a kill.
Be sure to have enough Mana when you start the first ulti. When u are low in Mana u better wait 1 more Minute to be sure to complete your Combo.
When you see that you get enganged by a Champion you have to do your E and Q Combo. Dont hit him with Autohit anymore, just run and wait for E-Spell cooldown. If the enemy is silly enough to follow you, E and Q him again and flee. When he reaches about 40% health and he is still following you: E - Q - R. When he is still alive : W - Q.
When 2 or more Champions are engaging you try to do a W - Q - W combo. When you get out of Locus of Power (W Spell) you get a few seconds some speed bonus. Use your flash and run! If one of the enemy is using his Ghost-Spell, stunm him with a E Q Combo.
When the first Enemys get low and start falling back, its time to start the Artillery.
W then R and bam bam bam.
Use Q as much as possible. With cooldown reduction runes and items you can cast Q almost every 3 seconds.
