Hello, this is actually my first thread/post on this forum. I'm just curious if someone could give me a breakdown on why Xerath is or is not viable in higher ELO as a support now that they've changed spell thief's edge. I know he's viable in lower elo simply because I've been doing pretty well with him. I also want to know what are the best builds for him.
Here is the item build I've been using, and I could use constructive feedback:
Spellthief's Edge -> Frostfang/Sightstone (whichever is needed more first) -> Boots -> Frost Queen's Claim -> Sorc Shoes -> Ruby Sightstone -> Rylai's -> Zhonya's -> Spirit Visage/Liandry's
Trying to make a tanky mage build with good CC and harrass without sacrificing too much ability power.
Thanks for the help,
