Why hasn't Riot changed Xerath's passive already?

If you don't want it let Syndra have it then.

Not that hard to figure out.
IF HE'S NOT DESIGNED TO SURVIVE CLOSE ENCOUNTERS, THAT WHY GIVE HIM THAT PASSIVE?

Not that hard to defuse your entire logic.

Second, he's not a nuker.
LeBlanc is a nuker, Annie is a nuker...these champs do a ton of damage in a very short amount of time. Xerath is a sustained damage champ. He hits with moderate damage per hit, but over time it's lethal. BUUUTT if you want to be a nuker with Xerath, you could grab DFG and try to ambush a lone enemy, but this puts you into smacking range, which defeats the best strength of Xerath.
Anyone Xerath uses E is pretty much guaranteed dead. I'd say he is a reliable nuker and siege champ. It's not like his ult isn't on a stupid short cd or anything.

....You've played Xerath 4 times and you don't even have a positive KDA with him

What do you think would be a good passive on Xerath?

I think a good passive for Xerath would be an out of place survivability one that scales with the game such that his slower damage output can keep pace with an increasingly bursty world, yet is weak enough that his main abilities can be powerful.

Play Xerath against AD Melees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! End of story. He gets Armor. Why'd you pick Xerath against Lux and think you'd win? Same thing goes with Annie and her shield that counters AD champs.

Hmm... maybe make it armor so isn't stupid to lane against AP mids, but can still mitigate alot of damage in team-fights

I like it the way it is. If a QQ thread changes his passive, I will get a bear, put him in armor, teach him to flip tables, and put him in Riot's staff lounge.
