Just got stomped by a Xertah on the enemy team while playing Ryze. I know my playing wasn't the best, but i was wondering how Ryze does against a Xerath in general. The matchup seems like its in favor of Xerath tbh, with that long range of his.

AFter Xerath got to level 6, he legit just kept on 100-0 ing me with his stupid range + mpen spell. He got one kill around 10:00 into the game, and snowballed out of control after that, managing to gank lanes (even after i call mia).

It got to the point where Xerath would full health me, and i wouldn't even see where he was.

Any advice?

Imporant things to note: I have MS quints, MPen reds, mana regen/lv seals and flat AP glyphs
I had a jungle jax that never ganked
Xerath had a Jungle maokai that never ganked.

a good Xerath won't even let Ryze touch him.
You are dependant on ganks, due he will push the lane most likely and you will need good positioning, buy some sustainish and maybe throw some magic resist in the mix.

Use flat MR glyphs instead of AP/level, especially on Ryze. AP just isn't good enough on you. Rush catalyst for HP and sustain in lane. Dodge lightning bolts and farm. Stay kinda' off to the side of the minion waves, so it's harder for him to harass you and push with the same spell. After (or before, if necessary) you get tear and maybe upgrade your boots, upgrade the catalyst into Banshee's Veil. Xerath will still be able to be really annoying, but after Banshee's he shouldn't be able to burst you very effectively.

Xerath completely ***** on Ryze :p

Anyone with huge range beats Ryze because he doesn't have the mobility or range to fight back. ie Lux.

To win, beg your jungler for ganks.

Or, shove lane as hard as possible and roam, but then he has better wave clear than you.

Ryze gets **** on by long range. Xerath has the longest range of them all.

This xerath guy was called 'dotbig'

I'm glad it looks like it wasn't my fault for losing lane. My jungler was giving me a hard time about it

You should really be running MR glyphs, not flat AP.
