Guide to Synergizing Xerath and Master Yi

Tips for Playing as Xerath with Master Yi

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 Master Yi Will Play

Try using Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.

Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.

If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.
