Xayah the Rebel is the next champion of Wild rift that we will cover. She is a powerful marksman with a very long range (undoubtedly longer than the range of many other marksmen), and with a kit that makes her a powerful choice, even in professional play (in League of Legends). She was just released during the Lunar Beast Event and is a champion that is sure to draw a lot of attention to herself.

Xayah is Rakan's lover and together they have a unique synergy never seen before in Wild Rift. When they are releasing together, both Xayah and Rakan gain some additional bonuses (as we mentioned in the Rakan guide as well), with Rakan gaining more and more significant bonuses. 

But that doesn't mean Xayah really needs Rakan to be playable. On the contrary, xayah is a more than viable marksman champion, even without Rakan being her backup.

That said, if you want to learn a powerful marksman champion that is often chosen even by professionals, xayah should definitely be your first choice. She's not that hard to play, and if you control all her feathers, it will have an impact on the game, even if you're a beginner at this champion!


Clean cuts (passive)

After using an ability, Xayah's next basic attacks will hit all targets along her path and drop a Feather.

Dual daggers (skill 1)

Xayah throws two daggers that deal damage that also drop feathers she can remember.

Deadly Plumage (Ability 2)

Xayah creates a storm of blades that increase her attack speed and basic damage, while also granting her movement speed if she attacks a champion.

Bladecaller (skill 3)

Xayah calls back all of her dropped feathers, dealing damage and rooting enemies.

Feather Storm (Skill 4 / Ultimate)

Xayah leaps into the air becoming unreachable and throws away a fan of daggers, dropping feathers she can remember.

How to match like Xayah

Xayah has some combos (if you want to call them that), but her kit is very circumstantial. The most basic combo is the root combo, which we will detail below. In addition, we have some tips to help you better understand how Xayah works in Wild Rift.

Skill 1 -> Auto attack -> Skill 3

This would be the main root combo of xayah if you manage to land all 3 of her feathers behind the opponent. You want to cast Skill 3 quickly once you have auto-attacked opponents, to call back the feathers and root the target that is incorrectly positioned.

Skill 4 (final) -> Skill 3

While it's not the combo you'll be using on her most of the time during the laning phase, it's definitely a powerhouse in team fights. When Xayah casts her ultimate, she will send out several feathers that she can summon back with skill 3. If you catch some enemies among them, they will root and take damage from the feathers.

A few more tips on how to play with Xayah

– You want to cast your Skill 2 when trading with an opponent

You shouldn't release this early (and for no reason) because it won't have a big impact. You'll do a lot more damage if you're 100% sure you're in range of auto attacks because with the movement speed bonus you get, you'll be able to chase them.

– When Rakan is your support, both of you will deal extra damage

Well not exactly - it's more like whenever you're flying with a Rakan, after you cast your Skill 2, missiles will be fired from both of you and the extra movement speed will also apply to Rakan. This would work extremely well if Rakan just used his ultimate and faced an enemy.

– You should always pay attention to how to position your feathers

Enemies often lose focus during team fights and don't pay attention to the feathers on the ground, ending up between them and Xayah. This is a great opportunity to root them and catch them by surprise, resulting in an advantage for Xayah and his team.

– If you have additional feathers and cast your Ultimate, it's basically death for opponents

You may have already noticed this, but even in the pro game, many Xayah players place multiple feathers before casting their ultimate (unless they cast the ult defensively). The damage these feathers will do on the way back and forth is going to be pretty crazy!

In what order to level up skills?

Xayah should always have her skill 3 maxed out first, then skill 2, and finally skill 1.

  • Level 1: skill 1
  • Level 2: skill 3
  • Level 3: skill 2
  • Level 4: Skill 3
  • Level 5: skill 4
  • Level 6: skill 3
  • Level 7: Skill 3

Keep leveling Skill 3 until it's maxed out, then focus on Skill 2 and lastly Skill 1. Of course, whenever you can, you want to add 1 point to your (final) Skill 4. 

The best summoner spells

Healing : Restores 80-360 Health and grants 30% additional Movement Speed ​​for 1 second to you and the most injured friendly champion nearby. Healing is halved for champions recently affected by Heal

Flash: Teleport a short distance forward or in the desired direction.

Gluttonous Mercury is best for Xayah as it can dispel any crowd control inflicted on her. 

Gluttonous Stasis is an alternative in case there is a Zed or some deadly opponents that pose a real threat to Xayah that her latter cannot otherwise mitigate.
