Tips to face Xerath

The following champions are the most recommended to face Xerath.

Jarvan IV

Jarvan IV’s Q and e skills can launch the enemies that are touched by Jarvan IV into the air when he makes his move. Xerath is weak against CC, as he is a very weak champion and has no mobility.


Kennen’s abilities and his passivity are very useful to end Xerath, since he is weak to CC. Kennen can take Xerath from an oversight, as he can enter his skill E to gain speed and use a flash to hit him with his ultimate.


Ahri’s passive can cure him every time the accumulation reaches its limit and can heal greatly with each unit touching his Q. Ahri’s ultimate ability can also help her, assassinate Xerath or escape him.


The ADC I recommend the most against Xerath is Ashe, since it has a great passive and a great ultimate, which can annoy Xerath. As we know Xerath is a weak champion, and if he is hit by some weakness he can go very badly. Ashe’s supreme ability can help capture Xerath or cancel his use in a good area quite easily.


This champion could be in the combination with Ashe, to get Xerath and get him out of the fight quite easily. Lioness’s skills can help you to cancel Xerath’s ultimate or catch him, since lewis has good CC. The ultimate skill of Leoa can be released from a good place to reach your goal.

Items that counter Xerath

The following items have to be used, to have a better fight against Xerath.

of Malmortius’ fauces

This object gives a magical shield of resistance to the champion it possesses, when it reaches -30% of his life. Allowing it to withstand 300+1 of magical damage, is very necessary for this item as Xerath can cause a lot of magical damage.

Fajin de Mercurio

This object out of any weakness is what you have when it is activated. Xerath’s skill E can stun an enemy touched by this skill, but this object allows you to get out of this CC in time and attack Xerath.


This object immunizes the champion you have when it is activated. Xerath’s abilities could be one of the ultimate, but having this object will help Xerath fail and not be able to hit his ability that could cost him death.
