Xerath is a Mage who likes to cast a lot of ranged spells to weaken his enemy. For that, you can play the Mage Ascendant with Arcane Comet, Manaflow Band, Transcendent and Sear. The secondary tree will be Precision with in particular Presence of Mind to gain mana as well as Coup de Grace. Concerning the statistics bonus, take twice the adaptive force coupled with armor or magic resistance according to your opposite.

However, it is important to note that runes are not an exact science. Some of them depend on the person you are facing on your lane. It is therefore important to know how to adapt to all situations.

Lore

Ally Tips

It's easier to land Arcanopulse on an enemy when they're moving toward or away from you, rather than side to side.

Eye of Destruction will make landing Arcanopulse easier as the target will be slowed.

If you stun an enemy with Shocking Orb, follow up with a guaranteed center hit on Eye of Destruction.

Enemy Tips

Xerath Runes's range can be intimidating, but most champions who close distance with him can trade favorably.

Xerath Runes takes a long time to engage Rite of the Arcane. Watch for his spellcast animation and start dodging.

Banshee's Veil will make it much harder for Xerath Runes to land Shocking Orb on you.

Xerath Runes is an Ascended Magus of ancient Shurima, a being of arcane energy writhing in the broken shards of a magical sarcophagus. For millennia, he was trapped beneath the desert sands, but the rise of Shurima freed him from his ancient prison. Driven insane with power, he now seeks to take what he believes is rightfully his and replace the upstart civilizations of the world with one fashioned in his image.
