Pros

  • Fastest ADC for pushing, par with Miss Fortune (if you able to use her passive properly)

  • Has one of disgusting CC for ADC, and easy to pull it off.

Cons

  • Short-range champ.
  • Long cooldown.
  • Needs 3 core items.

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Here's how you gonna build our ADC.

Get Essence ReaverEssence Reaver and Gluttonous GreavesGluttonous Greaves and the build split into two branches.

If you against 1 / 2 tanks / new to XayahXayah go to Classic Xayah. sustain is in there also with armor penetration.

or

If you against all squishy line up, go to Crit Xayah. it's melts people up. however minimum life steal and armor penetration

Now let's talk about Guardian AngelGuardian Angel . in my opinion, 85% the time you will INT more than you want to. you just spend 3k gold for ABSOLUTE NOTHING if your [Flash] on cooldown or you can't escape the gank. so there's alot of option to replace it if you want.

  • Death's DanceDeath's Dance is my jam. 30% damage turn into bleed damage and another life steal? nice.
  • Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer . more attack speed, more crit, more shield. why not?
  • BloodthirsterBloodthirster . life steal into shield. high cost, but should be worth if you not seeing any anti healing items.
  • Maw of MalmortiusMaw of Malmortius is underrated item. the lifeline effect & requirement sucks but the lifegrip is insane. it ask you to fight back with 30 AD and 10% life steal. you may use this along with Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer . however, lifeline do not stack but not the lifegrip one.
  • Wit's EndWit's End IS ABSOLUTLY BROKEN, YEAH MR IS CHERRY ON TOP BUT... THE FUCKING ATTACK SPEED! HOLY SHIT IT'S NUTS WITH HER. AND ALSO HEALING AT LOW HEALTH IS GREAT!

Xayah

Early Game

Well well well... Xayah is simple in explanation, but hard to do. you already know that Xayah is low range champion and this is so bad when [Kaisa] and Miss FortuneMiss Fortune is the queens of AD Carry. but, Xayah can make them run for their money.
Xayah must able to survive early on, and try to be aggressive to her opponent ADC. however do not overextend or far away from your Support. you can takedown your opponent if they overextend or support find an opening. also, Xayah is bad on trading doesn't mean she is passively in the turret. just stay in your lane, and do not overextending. Push your lane and take the turret.

Xayah

Mid - Late (Teamfight)

This is where The Rebel herself can be dangerous, or even be the reason why you lose the game. Xayah in this phase already has her core items such as Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge or [Runaan's Huricane] . and this is where usually, team fight getting more crucial. 

What you need to do as Xayah in this phase :

  1. Do not blindly coming to lane to farm, see if there's any champion in the map. if their jungler is missing, be careful to farm.
  2. Do not blindly use ult, remember, your ult is the only mobility and escape mechanism for her.
  3. Be aware of the situation. you're still fragile and you want to deal damage.
  4. Look for advantage for your teamfight. force a team fight if you able to caught them off pants, 3 vs 4 or 4 vs 5 can be your key to victory.

the build description says get Inifnity edge then split into the build but the items show Essence reaver. Is reaver now just a better first item due to the ability haste?
