Arrow

Xayah is a cool bird-lady with a chill attitude. She likes to throw sharp feathers at things, & has been known to lớn associate with other bird-people of the loud variety.

As an AD Carry, Xayah is a little slow to start, và requires some mix up before she can deliver the maximum amount of pain lớn her enemies. However, what she gives up in immediate burst, she makes up for in both mobility & pressure. Let’s take a look at what she can vị.

The Kit

Passive - Clean Cuts

trăng tròn What does it do:When Xayah uses any of her active abilities, she will gain a queue of feathers under her health bar. Her next three basic attacks will strike in a line, piercing all targets. At the over of the line, there will be a feather left on the ground.

This passive is what makes Xayah so quality, và almost all of her base abilities play off of it in one way or another. These feathers will be talked about more later, but needless lớn say, they are important khổng lồ her kit.

Because feathers are so key, you always want to be casting with Xayah. Use abilities, gain charges of Clean Cuts, spkết thúc the chrarges, make feathers. This is the cycle that you should always be doing in order to lớn maximize your damage.

Q - Double Daggers

đôi mươi What does it do:Xayah fires a skill shot in a line that pierces all targets hit. This skill shot does high damage to the first target hit, & half damage to subsequent targets. At the end of the skill shot, two feathers are left behind.

Well hey, look at that, more feathers. This is not entirely dissimilar to the Clean Cuts auto-attacks (although Double Daggers does far more damage). This is a very straight forward ability & has some similarities to lớn other AD Carry skill shots, i.e. Ezreal’s Mystic Shot.

The big difference here are the feathers that are left behind. và the ways that you can position them. Throw these at enemy champions and minions. Hurt stuff. That is all you need to know.

W - Deadly Plumage

20 What does it do:Xayah empowers her auto-attacks for four seconds, causing them lớn deal additional damage & allowing her khổng lồ attack faster. While Deadly Plumage is active, Xayah will gain additional movement tốc độ whenever she auto-attacks an enemy champion. If Rakan is cthất bại khổng lồ Xayah while she has Deadly Plumage, he will gain the same bonuses.

This is an auto-attaông xã empower spell, plain và simple. Use this ability when you want khổng lồ clear the wave sầu or when you are going hard on an opponent. The additional movement tốc độ here is the real kicker, as it will make Xayah very sticky.

Where this thing gets really crazy is when you Rakan inlớn the set. Rakan’s range is far, far shorter than Xayah, so it shouldn’t make that much of a difference. In some cases, sure. but given the right opportunity? You may find yourself having two bird people follow you, and beat you constantly while you are unable lớn escape. Could be a complete nightmare if the duo has the correct amount of communication.

E - Bladecaller

Riot’s Tooltip:

Surrender
đôi mươi What does it do:All feathers that are currently sitting on Summoner’s Rift fly lớn Xayah, piercing & damaging all foes that they pass through. If a single enemy is hit by three or more feathers, they will be rooted briefly.

Finally, the feathers pay off. This is Xayah’s main move, her big hit at any given time. As such, Xayah takes more mix up than other AD Carries. She must scatter the feathers so that she has ammo to lớn suông chồng baông xã lớn her. It is an important cycle that Xayahs must get in the habit of.

While this ability is certainly interesting for Xayah players, carefully waiting for the perfect moment lớn pull the feathers baông xã, it presents a far more quality challenge khổng lồ Xayah’s opponents. Laning or teamfighting against Xayah means watching your baông chồng at all times. Players must be aware of feather locations or they could get smoked at a moment’s notice.

R - Featherstorm

Surrender
đôi mươi What does it do:Xayah begins lớn fly, floating above Summoner’s Rift và becoming untargetable. After a moment, she will fling feather daggers in a arced line in front of her. This will giảm giá damage lớn all enemies in the blast radius as well as leave sầu behind a complete line of feathers. Xayah is able khổng lồ move sầu while she is in the air.

Let me tell ya, this ability looks cool. In terms of how it feels, think about Taliyah và her Q. While she is firing, she has this strange, floaty movement about her. Xayah is the same way while she is using Featherstorm. You can move her around khổng lồ reposition where the ultimate will lvà.

The great thing about Featherstorm, aside from the obvious up front damage, is the amount of feathers it instantly creates. Careful positioning after landing will net Xayah a ton of extra damage as well as a few stuns. This ability really turns Xayah inlớn a versatile champion who can quickly turn any area into lớn her battleground if given the chance. It can easily be used lớn mitigate some of Xayah’s other set-up problems.


Special ReCall - Lover’s Leap

When Xayah is in a game with Rakan, she gains an additional passive: Lover’s Leap.

Lovers leap will allow Xayah and Rakan lớn ređiện thoại tư vấn together. Meaning that one player can begin recalling và the other can join them, syncing up their recalls và effectively reducing the total reHotline time of the second player. Hypothetically speaking, Rakan could begin khổng lồ ređiện thoại tư vấn while Xayah finishes farming the wave sầu. She could then join hlặng towards the tail kết thúc of his reĐiện thoại tư vấn animation for her own swift trip baông xã khổng lồ the fountain.


The Build

*
Straight AD, attaông chồng tốc độ, và cool down reduction are going to be big stats for Xayah. The faster you attachồng the quicker you can spread your feathers và the lower your cooldown the more feathers you have to throw. Critical strike is also great due lớn the scaling on Bladecaller.

Keeping all of that in mind, you want to start the game working toward an Infinity Edge & a Blade of the Ruined King. While you are at it, don’t forget to lớn grab your Berserker’s Grieves.

After your staple items, keep piling on attaông chồng tốc độ with a Rapid Firecannon. Here is where things will probably vary from game to lớn game, but more than likely you are going lớn want to lớn get a pen nhà cửa. And if you are getting a pen nhà cửa, you probably want lớn get Lord Dominik’s Regards. Wrap this build up with The Bloodthirster just for good measure.

Conclusion

Xayah has far more powerful possibilities when being paired with Rakan than Rakan has paired with Xayah. The additional W could be very strong on two members at once. It will be interesting, as always, lớn see how people fare on a new champion. However, with two being released at once, and being so closely tied together, my curiosity is through the roof. Will one be good & the other bad? Will they be OP together and garbage apart? Who knows?

Xayah herself is one of Riot’s more interesting AD Carries in years. The idea of leaving a piece of power, feathers in this case, on the battlefield và drawing them inkhổng lồ you at will is certainly interesting & forces players khổng lồ look at the lane & the game from a new point of view.

What matters most about Xayah is that she is just cool. Cool as all hell. Her abilities look cool, the fluidity of her movement looks cool, và her purple/red outfit looks cool. Everything Xayah does, she does with style, but without ever looking lượt thích she is trying too hard (which is also cool).
