"I am the will of man unbound by flesh."― Xerath
The Ancient Ascendant is Xerath who stole the power from the Fabled Ascension ritual. Killing him bestows the "Ascension" buff, which buffs and enlarges the recipient. One cannot ascend by killing another Ascended; instead, the Ancient Ascendant will reform and must be slain again, repeating the cycle.
The Ancient Ascendant is defined as a neutral monster, so spells like Consume and Feast can deal true damage to him. However, Consume and Feast is not able to kill him due to his special passive "Ancient Ascendant".
The Ancient Ascendant has three abilities. Unlike other monsters, the Ancient Ascendant's abilities do not scale with his attack damage, but rather his ability damage.
|(Innate): The Ancient Ascendant is rendered immune to any form of crowd control.|
|(Innate): Xerath reduce incoming damage by 20% (+2%/min). Besides, Xerath is inedible and can not be killed by Consume and Feast.|
|Xerath starts channeling for 3 seconds. When the channel is complete, he will fire three pulses to three random Champions in range.|
Eye of Destruction
| Xerath calls down three blasts of arcane energy which strike after a 0.5 second delay, dealing magic damage and slowing enemies in target 200-radius area by 10% for 2.5 seconds.
Enemies hit directly take an empowered amount of damage and are slowed by a greater amount instead. The empowered slow decays down to 10% over the duration.
Rite of the Arcane
|Xerath calls down a line of arcane energy which strikes after a 0.6 second delay, dealing magic damage to enemies within a moderate area.|
