Xayah Strengths & Weaknesses

Late game monster if her team peels for her. She will want to farm early on and try to get some kills early on which will allow her to snowball easily.

Her Deadly PlumageW does deceptively high damage early on, especially when paired with Rakan. This ability when combined with her Double DaggersQ, BladecallerE, and a heavy CC Support, can allow her to get a huge lead in the lane.

Her Ultimate FeatherstormR can allow her to escape situations in which other ADCs may not survive. This also gives her the agency to root the entire enemy team with a cheeky usage of her Flash and BladecallerE.


Very immobile during the entirety of the game and can be shut down early on. She is very prone to ganks as well.

Her BladecallerE forms a vital part of her kit. Once that ability is down, the enemy can all-in her with ease and secure a kill on her.

She is very vulnerable once her Ultimate FeatherstormR is down. She can be focused down by CC as well as assassins at that point, so she is forced to play defensively while the Ultimate FeatherstormR is down.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Xayah is Weak

Play safe for the first few levels. You need time to come online and you shouldn’t be fighting unless you have a clear early advantage.

After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead.

Once you have a few levels under your belt, you can start to play aggressive and look for aggressive plays. You benefit from extended trades, so try to go for them frequently.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Xayah is Average

Try and stick with your Support throughout the mid-game. You’re quite vulnerable and easy to kill if you’re on your own. By staying with your Support, your survivability will increase.

Continue picking up farm in the side lanes when no team fights are occurring, but spend as little time away from your team. You need gold and XP to buy items and if you fall behind, it will be unlikely that you’ll be able to dish out damage in fights.

Look for picks with your Support/Jungler to get kills and increase your lead. If you kill a key target, you could make the call for Baron.

Late game
25+ min
Xayah is Strong

Just like in the mid-game, you should stick with your Support throughout the later parts of the game. Do not go around the map alone as you will die easily.

Do not play super aggressive in team fights. Just kite and auto-attack the nearest enemy champion. If you walk too far forward, the enemy will focus you and take you down.

Continue to kite in team fights and consistently adapt your positioning. Avoid standing still in fights as you’ll be an easy target.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Xayah's Deadly PlumageW procurement is a decent power spike for her in the lane. This ability can bamboozle enemies and deal a hefty amount of damage to them in a short time.

Her BladecallerE procurement is another power spike for her. If she is paired with a hard engage champion, she can quickly destroy the health bar of the CC'd target with this ability.

Getting her Ultimate FeatherstormR will add another layer of peel to her arsenal. This is the best kind of peel due to it being under her control.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Getting her core items (especially critical strike items) should help her scale up quickly. She will deal a lot more damage and will be a force to reckon with.

Her Ultimate FeatherstormR will come in very handy during this phase of the game. It will protect her from the disadvantages of her being short-ranged in general.

It doesn't matter which area she fights in during this phase of the game. All she needs to do is to be wary of her feather placement to BladecallerE multiple targets at the same time.

Late game25+ min

This is the game phase where Xayah deals a lot of damage with her Deadly PlumageW, auto-attacks, and BladecallerE. She will run down tanks and squishies alike if she can kite and rely on her team.

Xayah's short-range may provide some problems, so getting a QSS to preserve her power spikes should be a massive upgrade for her. It adds another layer of safety besides her Ultimate FeatherstormR.

Her Deadly PlumageW usage will dictate how powerful she is during this phase of the game. As she auto-attacks, the enemies will try to all-in her. If anyone gets too close to her, she should use her BladecallerE to CC them and continue with her onslaught.
