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

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 ”

OverjarlZane says “Skill matchup, you're both push and poke mages he just has higher mana costs offset by his passive.”

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.”

Terrific says “Meh, just obnoxious and annoying. nothing more. free gold if you can reach it. dodge the E and try not to get poked too much down. once you have BT you should be able to survive lane and catch him off guard. ”
KuuHaKu_OtgmZ says “He runs OOM (Out Of Mana) really quick early, this is the time frame where you must punish him from spamming. If you end behind on midgame I suggest you to switch to second build”

Mr. Nyahr says “Somewhere in-between Brand and Vel'Koz, he hurts a hell of a lot, but if he misses abilities he's not a threat. Don't let him snipe you with ult.”

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

FalleN3 says “This lane is a nightmare. If Xerath is anyway near decent he will destroy you in this match-up. He is extremely long-ranged which will make it easy for him to harass you and difficult for you to get near him to trade. He out-ranges you by a lot and his spells are difficult to avoid. He's not mobile so therefore weak to ganks, he is also squishy so you can burst him down after level 6. Try your best to farm until then.”

Sylvan Lore says “My least favourite orianna matchup in the game. He outranges and outdamages you with a low cooldown Ult and skillshots that are nearly undodgable if placed properly. The best you can do if counter picked this hard is try to break even and land some nasty late game Ults. Build Mercs and Banshees after a mana item so that you can survive his rotation. Do you best to hide in minions to he cant land an E in laning phase. If you somehow do get in range to combo him, he actually is quite squishy and you have kill pressure. But that is unlikely if he is spacing well. Recommend: Barrier or Heal and Vs. AP Assassin build with merc treads.”

eiensiei says “Just like Vel'koz, Xerath simply does what Lux does in lane, but better. His combo always deals more damage. Most Xeraths won't Q right on top of a champion, but to one of its sides. I try to notice which direction he usually goes for and dodge the opposite way (or I'll use W if it looks like the Q is about to hit). He clears the wave with W-Q, but Lux doesn't have the same luxury, so it's good to make peace with the fact that he might have better CS as I'm pushed in 24/7 - however that does leave him vulnerable to ganks. If my jungler doesn't come, I'll farm to the best of my ability and hope I can get better picks later on than he can.”

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. ”

Reason97 says “High range, decently low CD's for poke, deadly burst...... poke champs are always annoying since they can keep your passive down so easy. And since xerath has the potential to whittle you down and kill you without ever needing to come into your range, a good xerath player is a serious threat. ”
PlayCabex says “You just need to farm until you get level 6 and get your first item then you win”

Dr Eggmund says “Excellent poke champion, mobility is vital and you need to predict his abilities. His main poke is his Q beam, be sure to change up your movements so you don't become predictable. Eventually he'll use it to push lane. Ping your team when he walks down river as his Ult has a large range.”

FalleN3 says “If you can dodge his skill shots you will make this lane a whole lot easier than it'll be if you keep eating them up. This is easier said than done and it's quiet annoying how far back he can farm from. Do your best not do die and get to level 6, once you have your ultimate ready to go he is an easy champion to 100-0. He can keep this lane shoved hard though so you might end up farming under your tower.”

FalleN3 says “In the early levels there is not a whole lot to say, Xerath simply has an easier time than you. If you manage to trade with him you should be able to deal more damage, however your will use up more mana than him each time. His enormous range gives him a big advantage and your best option is to not bother trying to trade with him but to concentrate on farming instead. Try your best to avoid his poke and skill shots and be sure to make good use of your ball defensively (E). Early boots will be a solid buy in this match-up. Once it gets to late game, he will look to poke - you will need an engage, keep that in mind and look for openings.”

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.”
