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

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.”
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.”
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 ”

EvoNinja7 says “He has a ridiculous amount of poke, he has a stun and a fast global ultimate. He has no sustain for him or his support though, so try to engage once his spells are down. Dodging his Q is hard, but if you can dodge them that's his primary damage source gone.”

Redsaturn says “This champion is broken. If you don't want to deal with it just dodge. If he doesnt int he can kill you in the middle game with 1 Q and his ultimate. ”

yers says “Similar to lux, hes highly vulnerable once his W and E are burned out. Xeraths will usually move up as they aim their Q, which is a perfect time for you to set up a combo uninterrupted.”

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

Katawina52 says “Same as Velkoz, but tiny bit easier. His poke is just as annoying, but way easier to all in. When you E>W>Q in always make sure you continue to move around to avoid his E. This matchup depends a lot on how good you are at dodging and how good Xerath is at hitting. Dont be afraid to go for all ins after level 6 and in 2v2s you should hard win unless you take too much poke. Mercs vs xerath is good if they have more cc's.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Another lane similar to Lux, Zyra, etc. Don't stand in your minions so he has to choose to harass you with his Q or push the wave with his Q. Windwall his E only if its going to hit you from medium-long range but not point blank range because even if he hits you from point blank range it will only stun you for .5 sec which won't really matter too much. Dodge his skill shots by Eing through the wave and push him in to force him to run oom csing the wave. ”

7daysko says “His range is far superior. If you even think of getting up close, he can just stun you and run away, then keep on poking until you die. Definetely ask for ganks though, as he has no mobility whatsoever.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Xerath can be pretty stressful to play against since it's very hard to get close to him. I would highly suggest buying boots first against him so you can avoid his skillshots. I would also recommend using double chains against him too since he is immobile and all you need to do is keep dodging whilst adding autos to the combo. Try to all him at every opportunity early game using your W as close to him as possible with your E+Q combo, since when he gets items, he'll be waveclearing pretty fast and you'll be using your mana on clearing minions rather than going in for him. Remember to call for ganks on an overextend Xerath.”

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. ”

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.”

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.”

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. ”
Challenger Lux Guide by iZianni | Lux Player
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.”
