General information

Skills
Mana Surge

Xerath periodically empowers his next auto-attack to restore mana, which is doubled against enemy champions.

Arcanopulse
ArcanopulseQ
Cooldown: 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5 secondsCost: 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 manaRange: 750

Charges for 3 seconds during which he increases this ability's range. He gradually slows himself and can recast the ability at any given time to fire a beam of energy in the target direction, dealing magic damage to all enemies hit.

Eye of Destruction
Eye of DestructionW
Cooldown: 14 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 secondsCost: 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 manaRange: 1000

Calls down a blast of energy on the target location after a brief delay. It deals magic damage to all enemies within the impact area while slowing them by 25% for 2.5 seconds. Enemies in the center of the blast take increased damage and are slowed by a greater amount.

Shocking Orb
Shocking OrbE
Cooldown: 13 / 12.5 / 12 / 11.5 / 11 secondsCost: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 manaRange: 1050

Fires an orb of energy in the target direction, dealing magic damage and stunning the first target he hits.

Rite of the Arcane
Rite of the ArcaneR
Cooldown: 130 / 115 / 100 secondsCost: 100 manaRange: 5000

Channels and reveals himself for up to 10 seconds, during which he gains a wider field of view. He can now recast his Ultimate to send a ball of energy to a location of his choice. The ball deals magic damage and grants sight of that area for a short while. Each cast has a static cooldown of 0.8 seconds.

Quick tips to play Xerath

Stand as far back as possible and use your range advantage to harass and poke the enemy laners down.

Delay a team fight as long as possible while you try to poke the enemy down with your abilities. Look to fight when the enemy is low.

Prioritize using your ArcanopulseQ and Eye of DestructionW when the enemy is inside the minion wave. This will help you push the wave and poke them at the same time.
