Hi, I've faced Xerath's mid a couple times and he's a ***** to lane against. However, I hardly ever see him and he's rare in competitive play. Why is this? Also is he worth getting?
Too easily countered; Any gapclosers - LB, Ahri, Kassadin, Talon.
too much effort for not enough payoff
AP kog can do the same thing as xerath just much better
cuz hes bad, shhhh
I just picked him up. He's pretty fun and his combos are extremely powerful. Couldn't say why nobody plays him.
Oh yeah, he relies on positioning too, without some kind of gapcloser (save for flash).
Because Lee Sin kicks your stunned opponent out of ulti position.
He actually needs some practice to play well. You have to learn his mechanics and perfectly feel his ranges.
Personal preference probably plays a big part in it, why would I want to play Xerath who I personally don't find as fun as some other AP caster?
