Sinyora says “Xerath's heavy magic damage can break our E) Black Shield with a single spell without having it block CC. Then since the rest of his kit is long range, he never has to walk close and risk getting hit by a root. Added bonus that his spells have no missile time while Morgana's Q) Dark Binding is super slow.”
Kcmichalson says “[SUP] Xerath will try to stay behind minions and exploit his range advantage to poke you down. He will often skirt the edges of the wave to poke your carry, so wait for him to move to the edge of a wave and rush to pin him to a wall. When he ults, don't be afraid to use W and E to abruptly change your positioning. ”

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

awawa says “A good Xerath is a cancer matchup. He outranges you, but you can try to trade and bully him out of lane pre-6. You NEED to rush boots early and dodge as much as you can. Make the lane your dance floor. DONT STAY ON LOW HP IF HE HAS ULT Life becomes easier after laning phase. He dies when you R. Take barrier if you feel scared, rush zhonyas/mercs/banshees if youre struggling a lot.”

MageSept says “Xerath is a famously difficult matchup for Veigar, but he still relies on skill shots, and has mana issues. Take Doran's Shield and Second Wind to survive lane. ”

ShokLoL says “Xerath can be bullied pretty hard 1v1 with the comet build. His cooldowns are fairly long and can definitely be dodged so try keep your movement active and punish when they are down. Make sure you don’t stack with the wave so he has to choose between hitting you or pushing the wave. Make sure to rush tier 2 boots in this matchup for the extra movement speed.”

ShokLoL says “Xerath is a fairly strong 1v1 laner but is vulnerable to getting ganked or all-ined. His cooldowns are fairly long and can definitely be dodged so try keep your movement active and punish when they are down. Make sure you don’t stack with the wave so he has to choose between hitting you or pushing the wave. If he wastes E that can be your window to force a trade onto him. ”

ShokLoL says “Xerath is all about dodging skillshots. Take fleet and rush out tier 2 boots and you shouldn't have too many issues. Make sure you don’t stack with the wave so he has to choose between hitting you or pushing the wave.”

Soft Headpats says “Similar to Lux and Ziggs, this lane is all about dodging skillshots. Rushing T2 boots against Xerath is common to help with this. Like with other mages, avoid stacking with the wave so that he has to choose to hit you or the wave. When he charges up his Q, you have a pretty easy target for QW poke. You can also WQ/WW to help with surviving his ult. If he happens to ult too close to you, you can cancel it with EQ or EE. ”

ShokLoL says “Xerath is all about dodging skillshots so you definitely want to rush out tier two boots as soon as you can. Make sure to not stack with the wave so he has to choose between hitting you or hitting the wave. Post 6 you should find it very easy to setup ganks onto him.”
