Fizz's E is on a 16/14/12/10/8s CD.
Gragas's E is on a 7s CD.
Graves's E is on a 22/20/18/16/14s CD and its cooldown is reduced by 1s for each autoattack.
Jarvan's E is on a 13s CD, and his Q is on a 10/9/8/7/6s CD.
Jax's Q is on a 10/9/8/7/6s Cd.
Katarina's E is on a 12/10.5/9/7.5/6s CD and costs nothing.
Kennen's E is on a 10/9/8/7/6s CD and costs energy.
Leblanc's W is on a 18/16/14/12/10s CD and her ult is on a 40/32/24s CD.
Lee Sin's W is on a 9s CD.
Nidalee's Pounce is on a 3.5s CD and costs nothing.
Renekton's E is on a 18/17/16/15/14s CD and, if he hits you with it, he can use it again. It also costs nothing.
Shen's E is on a 16/14/12/10/8s CD and costs energy. It also taunts you if it goes through you, making it impossible for you to use abilities on him until the taunt ends.
Trist's W is on a 22/20/18/16/14s CD and refreshes on kills/assists.
Trynd's E is on a 13/12/11/10/9s CD and its cooldown is reduced by 2s for every crit. It also costs nothing.
Ziggs's W is on a 26/24/22/20/18s CD.

I don't see the problem with Ahri gaining one charge of her ult every 40/35/30 seconds, stacking up to 3 charges. It has shorter range than most of the abilities I've listed, and she would need 10s more to get to 3 stacks of her ult.

It wouldn't gain stacks on kills/assists.
You forgot the biggest one of them all. Kassadin's R with 7/6/5 CD.

However, that's not the point. The thing is, all these champions are limited by cooldown so they can only flash once before they have to walk. If these champions overextend enough, even their flash skills won't save them because the walking is a window of opportunity for successful ganks. Ahri on the other hand, isn't limited by as hard as these champions because her R can be casted consecutively in a row.

Your troll idea would break him completely. x3 more than Darius could ever hope to be.

Honestly, there should be more meta breakers like Darius.
Guys this thread is about Xerath, debate elsewhere.

What if (and i know this is a shot in the blue) we could hit Xerath with a few small ratio nerfs. Then convert his Ultimate to the Kog'Maw system (increases Mana Cost after each consecutive use.) To top it all off, make the mana costs kind of crazy high and add a high mana regen to his W for example when he is in his Locus, he gets a lot of Mana Regen. This would make him truly a siege Mage because he would shut himself down position wise in order to keep bombarding the enemy team.

Just a thought from a Xerath player

Bump, such a simple idea that would almost completely fix a great champ.

a little late but I'll bump. It would kind of help him. Although That would make getting into range worth it for harass. His e if no one got that.

Honestly his ratios aren't that great as is. The idea on mana regen on w is good.
