Official Xerath Rework Discussion

#1Ferd_Da_BirdPosted 10/10/2013 8:42:46 PM
What does everyone think about the new Xerath?

Personally, I think he's bat**** OP. Let me explain:

Passive: Free Spell Pen and a Lissandra-lite passive. That's damage and sustain. That's a lot of free stuff for doing nothing. Also, now not useless.

Q: Best elements of his old w and old q combined into one high damage spell. Yeah, it's really good, but his other spells make him op.

W: Imagine Lux E, with 5x the damage and no travel time. Now it also slows as it hits rather than an area. One of these can bring you down to half hp.

E: Balanced, imo. Skillshot, so it's fair and also doesn't one-shot people. W-E combo can oneshot someone if you land a Q beforehand.

R: He really doesn't need an R at all. It's a Ziggs ult that does 3x the damage almost instantly. The travel time is so short it is literally impossible to avoid all of them as he gets vision almost immediately.

Conclusion: Decent CC, OP Vision OP damage. What to do:

Nerf W ratio and slow
Nerf W range
Nerf R Damage
Nerf R Vision

Now you're fine.

I'd be able to form a better opinion if his tooltips were actually a thing.

Is he really going to be able to get to level 20?

No, that was a dummy item that didn't pass testing phase so it's not available.

He looks fun on paper, but so does the new Heimerdinger.
Not to derail the topic of course.

Q looks solid, great siege potential
Ult looks like a new fun mechanic to try
Slow AND stun..maybe some support xerath ;) (not really though pls)
