First cast: Xerath starts charging, gradually increasing the range of Arcanopulse up to a maximum of 1400 while decreasing his movement speed by up to 50% over the next 1.5 seconds. While charging, Xerath cannot attack or use his other abilities. After 3 seconds, Arcanopulse cancels and half the mana cost is refunded.

Xerath calls down a blast of arcane energy, which strikes after a 0.5 second delay dealing 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+60% AP) magic damage and slowing enemies in a target 200-radius area by 25% for 2.5 seconds.

Enemies hit directly take 100.02 / 150.03 / 200.04 / 250.05 / 300.06 (+100.02% AP) magic damage and are slowed by 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 % instead. The empowered slow decays down to 25% over the duration.

Xerath anchors himself to his current location for up to 10 seconds. While anchored, Xerath is immune to displacement effects and gains the ability to cast Arcane Barrage up to 3 / 4 / 5 times but cannot cast his other abilities.

Rite of the Arcane can be cancelled early by moving or attacking and will automatically end once all shots have been fired. If Rite of the Arcane ends without using a single cast of Arcane Barrage, the cooldown is reduced by 50%.

Arcane Barrage: Xerath calls down a blast of arcane energy which strikes after a short delay, dealing 200 / 250 / 300 (+45% AP) magic damage to enemies within a moderate area. Arcane Barrage has a 0.8 second cooldown between casts (unaffected by cooldown reduction).
