Guide to Synergizing Azir and Xerath

Tips for Playing as Azir with Xerath

Be a bird!

Think of Emperor's Divide as a defensive ability first and foremost. Use it when the enemy engages on you or your allies. Remember that your team can walk through the soldiers summoned by Emperor's Divide and use this to your advantage when enemy melee champions engage on you.

Be careful about putting down both of the soldiers stored by Arise! Unless you're going all-in, always have a soldier in your back pocket if you need to escape over a wall or if you misposition your other soldier and need damage now.

In the lane, try to position your soldiers between the enemy's minions and the enemy champion. This way you can use them both to last hit and to project threat onto your lane opponent.

Advice to Understand How Xerath Will Play

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.
