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

Doody_tco says “Poke Miss Fortune to death and it is hard to escape his ultimate”

Penguto says “Xerath depends on what support you have, If you have a support that can grab Xerath is no big deal, but if you cant hit him he will out-range you and poke you to 1hp.”
KoZee says “Xerath plays a lot like lethality Varus actually. His Q is a long range charged poke and he has an AOE stun. His R gives him the advantage of trading and leaving his enemies low, as he can often follow up from a distance. However, he is very squishy himself, leaving him open to punishment if he misses his abilities. He is a very skillshot reliant champ.”
Delta eGirl says “Xerath will deal lots of magic damage from very far away, often not even on your screen. Aphelios doesn't really have a way to deal with this, and it's up to the support to dive Xerath in order for you both to follow up. Either out sustain or dive him, or he'll win.”

majororange77 says “Read Guide for full matchup. Annoying but predictable poke. His Ultimate has a huge range.”

Mothstress says “Makes botlane nearly unplayable due to his high poke and non-projectile damage, rush a DShield with a vampiric scepter and pray that your support goes in on him”

Tifforma says “Xerath can be hard, his poke and damage is really good. Dodge his spells, catch him, kill him. Win.”
TvojeMomJeGoiCam says “This can be tough match up if you can't dodge skillshots. He is very annoying but also squishy and weak in all-ins. ”

MilkshakeGuru says “A good Xerath is BAD news. His W and Q's are extremely easy to land on TF who has short range. Every time you want to farm expect to have to dodge or get hit. I like going Noonquiver + Refillable as an ideal first back against him.”

Profesor APH. says “first xerath have damage but if he want to poke you he need to give damage to minions and adc probably miss some cs, if you use q on severum its pretty hard to hit you by his r or something another ”

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

Yeager says “One of Cassiopeia's main weaknesses is her short range. Xerath outranges her, so you should never have a chance of killing him if he positions well. You can still win this lane but it depends entirely on how good you are at predicting and dodging skillshots. His waveclear is also much better, so that makes it even harder for us as he can constantly shove in the wave after 1 complete item. ”

Avucado says “See Velkoz. Literally the same thing but his kit is better with dealing with you.”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting Potion because Intensive Poke and sustain is heavily needed. Biscuits MIGHT work too but I'd rather have Minion Dematerializer. In Long Range Mages Matchups you have to try to understand their Q pattern and where they will cast it. They would generally want to either poke you down to kill you or shove you out of the lane, but the matchup is not really impossible if you get boots and try to get close to them for a nice combo.Xerath is the most oppressive as his Q's bypass minions, but they are dodgeable if you always switch your dodge pattern. Try to be as non predictable as possible. Get Minion Dematerializer. Post 6 try to either get close on them with your ult and outplay with flash OR roam bot faster than them and get kills. They will follow with their long range abilities but by the time they actually do something meaningful you should have sealead the deal. This matchup is all about roaming and learning how to properly dodge his poke on lane. It is okay if you do not get kills, but it is not ok to get killed especially since he cannot 100-0 you unless he's super fed.”

Yeager says “One of the easiest match ups. Take the full sustain page to survive his poke and look for trades already from level 3. He is immobile so it should be almost impossible for him to dodge your skill shots without flash. All in him at level 6 if you've managed to poke him down a bit from earlier levels. Once you get out of laning phase and into the side lane, he can't do anything.”

Ambitieux says “So in this lane versus Xerath you cannot let Xer have his way. If you stay back and try to play the lane regular he will shove you in and poke you under turret without any repercussions. So for this one try to take any trades that look healthy. And you need to have the fancy feet because dodging will be the best way to win. You can also all in at 6 to beat him if he is overextended. His range will be the mountain that you either climb or die on in this lane. Ask for jungle assistance.”

iZianni says “He outranges us and outpokes us. We one shot him if we ever land skills, but he outranges us. Boring match up, just farm and play for mid-late game. ”

AP WormMaW Mid says “We all know this guy and what is he cappable of from big distance. This is why you will pretty much lose all trades pre-6, where it's best to just farm up. At level 6, when he starts channeling Q, you can try to hit him with E,Q,R combo because it's really hard for him to avoid it when he is slowed down due to his Q channel. At level 11 it will be a bit easier to trade him from distance, but still not 100% great because your ranges will be similar. Where you actually start outperforming him is level 16, where your range becomes higher than his, so whenever he is channeling Q, you have free R hits on him, which will force him away from whatever objective that he is currently trying to defend. So chill out here and don't get behind, you will be stronger later on!”

Yeager says “The outcome of this matchup entirely depends on how good you are at reading the opponent because Xerath only has skillshots. You can rush tier 2 boots right after you get Lost chapter to make it much easier to dodge his abilities. He has the range advantage at all times, and also better waveclear with enough items, which makes him a good pick into Orianna. You want to get out of the lane ASAP and look for plays at top/bot to snowball your laners. ”

Foreskin Snacher says “corrupting potion start, buy mercs to survive lane once he gets mythic item ask for a lane swap”

Halfhand says “Just like in the Karthus matchup you should look to buy boots first. Preferably mercs. This allows you to dodge his spells really easy.”
