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

This has been an outstanding question ever since his release, and to my knowledge Rioters has NEVER EVER gave a response to the community's well developed thesis on why Xerath's passive is out of place, and not befitting of him.

not weak, just not suitable.

Because it's fine and allows him to survive close encounters that he's not designed to survive otherwise.

Not that hard to figure out.

Because it gives him more survivability when Lee Sin and Vi jump at him. His passive drastically reduces their damage early game, which does him a lot of good when it comes to surviving ganks.

I suck at positioning. I love his passive when I get caught out like a n00b

I'm sorry, but I'd like to keep my free 100 armor late game. Zed and Kha'zix have to pay for their armor pen, but I don't have to pay for my armor.

Uh. Why address his passive?

Why not address the fact that he SUCK ASS NOW?!

Literally. As soon as I finally saved up the IP to buy Xerath, he got nerfed to hell. D:

WOW such a strong passive is out of place. 15% of his ap. imagine building zhonyas on him with that passive. Just because passive is not attack oriented it is bad?

I think you're in the wrong dimension.

Pretty sure it's because he's already broken with a bad passive. With a good passive he'd just be more broken.

(Downvotes incoming for being a Xerath player that admits he's broken.)

Xerath is probably in the list of the top 10 best mages in league at the moment.

Learn how to play him rather than *****ing about him.
