WhyArcane Comet

Comet's poking nature allows you to repeatedly proc Comet for additional harass damage. If procced with [W] or [E] you're much more likely to Lane the Comet thanks to the slow/stun.

WhyManaflow Band

Manaflow combined with Xerath's passive provides you massive mana sustain. Xerath has massive mana costs on [Q] and [W] so make sure to use those abilities to get the refund.


Transcendence allows Xerath to hit 30% CDR with Morello's alone for a massively powerful mid-game poke and harass.

If you'd rather opt for less, but more powerful spell casts, Absolute Focus is a great alternative.


Xerath excels at poking in lane and Scorch is the ultimate lane dominance rune. Combined with Comet, Scorch should easily put your target in Coup De Grace range very quickly.


Triumph is an all-around solid rune choice on any champion. The extra heal on kill/assists allows you to continue on in fights.

WhyCoup De Grace

Coup De Grace is the go-to rune for mid-lane mages who are looking to pump out maximum damage to back-line targets.

Xerath's long range allows him to hit the back-line no matter where he is positioned, making him prime for taking full advantage of Coup De Grace.
