I don't think Abyssal is going to be that good on him due to its magic pen being an aura and Xerath being long ranged.

That's true but that's one of the only offensive based AP items with MR on it. The other one being Lich Bane and I don't think Lich Bane would work well on him.

Being able to maul someone trying to guard their turret while out of turret range isnt useful?

Seems like he would be a good defender. He can lock in and defend a point, but then if he needs to rotate he gets a movement speed buff slightly after, and I dont see a use for hourglass... hes a long range mage, he should be well behind the tank out of range of danger, if he gets targeted those two seconds aren't going to do much seeing as he has no AoE damage.

Uh, his ult and another ability are AoE.

Edit: oh you mean for the fiddle/karthus hourglass effect. True dat.

I find him better than some of the other mages. You just have to be sure your good at landing his spells. His passive armor bonus is a huge plus where most teams are comprised of ad.

Haven't played him yet, anyone try ap and cooldown reduction? evil tome, DFG and blue cdr runes will get you to the CDR cap. So your build would go deathcap, rylai's, evil tome, DFG.

Thoughts?

Wouldn't you want a CDR heavy build? That armour bonus isn't going to save him from death if he's doing no damage.

Did you read the thread? Most people are advocating CDR.
