Xerath was one of the first five champions I bought when I started playing League of Legends. I had a lot of fun with him, but eventually he ended up being sat on a shelf. I cannot remember the last time I played as him.

Furthermore, I can't remember EVER seeing anyone else play as him. Not in any games I've been in, streams I've watched, or Events that I have watched. I feel as if I am missing something.

So whatsup with Xerath guys? Why does he seem so underplayed, and never mentioned? What situations would make him a choice pick? I feel like making Xerath shine again ^_^

I'm thinking of playing him when the other team lacks gap-closers. I'm not sure if I'm good enough at positioning yet, but practice makes perfect.

His passive is pretty meh. Bonus armor is nice, but honestly if the enemies are getting to you you are probably dead.

He either needs a tad bit better base on his Q or a tad bit better scaling. His E is fine. His W is fine I think.

His ultimate is the best part about him, if you build a comp around abusing it you could do really well. It's also a good reason to choose him against certain casters that are not very mobile, as once you hit 6 landing a ERQRRQ is like free kills.

Also, If I remember correctly, when he came out there was a big tournament going on so no pros even tried him for a while.

I thought about playing him today, then I saw Zigg in my champion inventory and thought him more fun.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

skillshot based champ who is reliant on his ult for any type of kill potential. Not very attractive to most players

I also heard that AP kog does everything he does better
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I forgot who Xerath was. I think I have only played against him with Lux.Once. Ever.

Whatsup Castermaster ^_^

In your honor, I repeatedly sniped the hell out of a tryndamere earlier with Xerath :D

It was fun.

The game was won :)

Popular champs are popular. Unpopular champs are shrowded in "UP" mists.

Play him. Half the fun is that people often assume you're UP or they are not so keen on what you do (unless it's ZOMG HIGH ELO).

Have fun, it's a bloody game

Xerath is a solid champ with an awesome range, but in my opinion he is not much fun to play.

I can't really say why, his mechanics just don't make me want to play him over other casters.
