Guide to Synergizing Xerath and Janna

Tips for Playing as Xerath with Janna

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.

Advice to Understand How Janna Will Play

Eye of the Storm can be used on allied turrets.

Timing Janna's ultimate can push enemies away from a wounded ally or even separate enemies.

Quickly firing a Howling Gale without the charge up can be used to heavily disable the other team.
