Summoner Spells Back to Top

In reality, any summoners are viable on Xerath as long as 4.pngis one of them. Taking 21.png or 7.png is generally the best choice.

I highly recommend using the 12/18/0 setup. I do this instead of 18/12/0 because of Thunderlord's Decree. Here's why I prefer it over Deathfire Touch:

1. Xerath's three main damage spells are AoE which means DFT will deal half dmg.

2. Thunderlord's Decree gains 10 base damage per level, which means the E-W-Q combo (or any combo of 3 spells/attacks) will really start to hurt as the game progresses. Plus, if you have Luden's, your burst will be even scarier because you've got so much base damage piled up. There's nothing better than erasing an enemy carry in half a second.

Max order 100% of the time = Q, W, E.

Put a point in E at lvl 2 if their jungler could gank super early or if your opposing laner can out-trade you. Otherwise, take W at lvl 2 and E at lvl 3.


xerathpassive.png Passive-Mana Surge: Although this passive isn't game-changing, it's very useful and fits in Xerath's kit perfectly. Try to utilize this every 12 seconds. Basic-attacking a champion restores double mana but don't put yourself in danger just to aa. Remember to use this on jungle camps as you walk by.

xeratharcanopulse.png  Q-Arcanopulse: This is Xerath's primary poke, harass, and wave-clear tool. Although it has a relatively high mana cost, your passive (xerathpassive.png) and mana item should allow you to cast this A LOT (cooldown is very low) while still having mana to do other things. During late game, use this to poke the enemies down before a fight. Often times, the enemies will force a bad engage to avoid letting you poke any longer.

xerathlocusofpower.png W-Eye of Destruction: At max rank, this is Xerath's strongest ability. Along with the 90% AP scaling in the center, enemies are potentially slowed by 60-80% on impact, depending on rank. This ability is MUCH easier to land when used as a follow-up to heavy cc (like E xerathmagechains.png) due to the 0.5 second delay before impact, but don't hesitate to cast this without previous ccxerathlocusofpower.png is also good for wave-clear.

xerathmagechains.png E-Shocking Orb: This is a great setup tool for Xerath's other abilities. It has a relatively fast projectile speed so it isn't TOO difficult to land. The stun lasts longer the farther it travels (1.75s max). Usually you should immediately follow up a hit with W xerathlocusofpower.png and Q xeratharcanopulse.png.

xeratharcanebarragewrapper.png R-Rite of the Arcane: The hardest thing about playing Xerath is using his ult effectively. Landing his ult is NOT easy. If anyone tells you it's easy, they're lying. Use this to finish off low HP stragglers, or to focus down enemy threats as fights begin. Due to its huge range (semi-global at max rank), you can be helpful to your teammates without being near them. Roaming post-6 is very effective because Xerath can be a threat without walking fully to another lane.  xeratharcanebarragewrapper.png Rite of the Arcane is a great dragon & baron-stealing tool. Before activating your ult in any situation, make sure you're safe because you become rooted and very vulnerable. This ability can be cancelled by issuing a move command; if cancelled before firing a shot, half the CD of your ult is refunded.
