In this guide I will be showing you how to counter Xayah. This League of Legends champion is very good, as she has a lot of damage and skills that are too good for an ADC. Xayah is a champion who if played properly can play alone on the line, as her skills help her as much as her ultimate. But each champion has his weaknesses and here I will show you what Xayah’s weaknesses are.

Tips for dealing with Xayah

  • Use champions with mobility. This helps dodge the E of Xayah.
  • Don’t spend the ultimate skill when Xayah has R. Expect Xayah to spend her R to throw your ultimate or catch her carelessly.
  • Don’t chase Xayah with slow champions. She can beat those champions very easily.
  • Use champions of good CC. This CC can prevent Xayah from releasing his R.
  • Xayah counter champions

    The following champions are the most recommended when facing Xayah, as they have very good skills against her.


    This is the ADC that I recommend most against Xayah, as it has mobility in its ability E. Lucian can end up with Xayah very easily, as he can dodge that ability E of hers. She also has a great passive that can kill only Xayah, as this passive gives her 2 basic hits for each skill she throws.


    This support is most highly recommended when combining passive with Lucian. Braum makes a great counter to Xayah’s abilities with only one ability that is his E. This Braum’s E ability allows the thrown abilities to crash into that big ice shield, causing the Xayah R not to have passage but its feathers to stay in front of Braum’s shield.

    Items (Objects) Xayah counter

    The following items (objects) have to be used in the game against Xayah.

    Mercury Fajin

    This object removes any weakness in which the champion who possesses it is found when he is caught. Mercury Fajin can quickly remove you from the E of Xayah if you are caught, so you can quickly exit that CC and not be a victim.


    This object immunizes the champions who possess it when activated. This item is very good for when Xayah throws his R and E, so as to avoid being caught. Zhonyas has to be activated when Xayah tries to pull his feathers.
