hardkoR says “Enchanters and mages can harass you in lane and kite you in teamfights.”
Foxirion says “Xerath’s high range and burst damage can pose a significant threat to Nautilus. His ability to poke from a distance can make it difficult for Nautilus to engage.”
Stillo says “ Facing Xerath in the laning phase as Braum can be tricky due to Xerath's long-range poke, especially with his Arcanopulse (Q) and Shocking Orb (E) which Braum's shield can't block. This makes it challenging to engage or protect your ADC effectively. To handle this, focus on strategic positioning to minimize Xerath's poke damage and engage when he's vulnerable after using his abilities. Utilize bushes for surprise engages and coordinate with your jungler for ganks to pressure Xerath and gain an advantage in lane. Additionally, invest in early magic resist items to mitigate Xerath's damage and stay relevant in the laning phase”

Foxirion says “Xerath's long-range poke and burst damage make him a major threat to Rakan, as he can easily poke down Rakan from afar and control team fights.”

Tips Against Xerath in Mid Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

GreenReapers says “Electrocute or Conqueror. D-shield if you aren't good at dodging his abilities, else Long Sword. Early boots help tremendously to sidestep his poke. Xerath has a strong neutral against you, being able to clear the waves from range and using his passive to sustain his mana. Good xeraths wont let you get close to them and will continue to shove waves post 6, so you can't really kill them. If you spot a good roam go for it, because Xerath will shove the wave and probably get a plating for it, or follow after with his R. If he oversteps tho, you should be able to kill him very easily, as he doesn't have any form of mobility besides flash.”
In depth Zed Guide [14.13] by GreenReapers | Zed Player
Viktorias Secret says “Painful early and midgame, same goes for other artillery mages (Hwei/Ziggs/Vel'Koz). They outrange you by far, have same burst damage and AoE coverage than you. But your strenght is your better resilience in midgame and better DPS/damage over time + if you manage to reach them, there is nothing much they can do past 2 items.”
Viktor Guide 14.12 by Viktorias Secret | Viktor Player
vitya331 says “Xerath is ranged but he is not a very hard match up since you can easily dodge his abilities most of the time and after all in and murder him. ”
[14.11] Gragas Mid/Top/Jungle by vitya331 | Gragas Player
Kazari says “QでHPをじりじりと削られる。 EでAll - inを完全拒否される。 出来る事と言えばQでダメージトレードを続ける事だけだが、相手にはQに加えてWによるダメージソースもあるため手数不利。 かといってタワー下に引きこもろうとすると一生Qでファームを妨害され続け、挙句の果てにはRで殺されたりする。 が、靴を積んでしまえばQを徒歩で避けられるので話が変わる。対面のスキルを全部避けた後にダーキンダガーでポークしてゾーニングすると良い。出来ればの話だが。”
sick204 says “Respect Xerath's long-range poke and burst potential with his abilities, especially his Q and R. Use Yasuo's E to dodge Xerath's skill shots and minimize damage taken. Be cautious of Xerath's zoning potential with his W and E, which can control space and make it difficult for Yasuo to engage. Utilize W to block Xerath's E in trades and team fights to reduce his poke and burst potential. Engage on Xerath when his abilities are on cooldown or when he's low on mana, as he can be vulnerable during these times. Consider building items like Mercury's Treads or Hexdrinker to mitigate Xerath's magic damage and crowd control.”

otaliz says “All of his abilities are skillshots, so you should buy boots at first base, so you can dodge his abilities very easily. Shurelya's build is good against him because of the extra movement speed. Mercury's Treads is also an option outside of Shurelya's build.”
Foxirion says “Xerath’s high range and crowd control can be a threat to Swain, as he can keep him at a distance and disrupt his positioning.”
michaliis says “Go Dorans Shield. Yone sided Match up. He is poke but really squishy and easy to dogde. Geto to him and he is dead. When he ults run around in E he wont be able to hit you because of the ghost.”
The Ultimate MID Yone Guide (S14) by michaliis | Yone Player
Laimaudeja says “[I would use the Summon Aery page in this lane, and start Doran's Ring.] Use your early game power to gain wave control, lane priority, and potentially bully Xerath. Hold your Qs for when Xerath is charging his own Q, as the self-slow makes it significantly easier to hit him with abilities. Also avoid having no minions between yourself and Xerath from Level 3 onward as his stun can be very dangerous at higher ranges. You should buy boots early to have an easier time dodging Xerath's skillshots. ”
A Comprehensive Ziggs Primer by Laimaudeja | Ziggs Player
Yannou-Ari says “Flash - TP - Scaling HPs. Xerath is very annoying because he is one of the few champs that actually outranges you. Never stand in your wave against xerath. Why? Because then he has to choose between hitting you or the wave. Push the lane hard so he doesn't get the chance to harass you under turret for free. If both players are good, the matchup is even, since both of you literally only have skillshots as spells. Buy early tier 2 boots to prevent getting hit by too much skillshots. May the best scripter win!”
