AFAIR every single pbe change made it into the official version completely untouched for the last 18 months.

True.Xerath doesn't need a rework,he only needs a small buff,or a new passive and that's that.

Most of the people at Riot have a very wrong way of thinking-they believe change is always good.And that's not true.At a certain point in time,the game is very good and it needs little change.That's the moment they begin ruining it.

World of Warcraft is the perfect example-during the second expansion(WotLK),the game was in a great state,but because "they" believed eternal change is a good thing,they ruined everything.

League of Legends and it's champions are just like that.If you change something,that is already good,you risk making it worse.

I haven't been playing xerath very long so I don't know if he heeds a rework but I really liked his passive that gives him mana back on some auto attacks. and his ulti rework was pretty cool.

His rework looked great, I was really looking forward to it. Yeah he wasn't the first champion who I'd say needed a rework but what they did with him was great. Go through with it Riot!

The rework's still coming and should be back on the PBE in a while. We're testing out something new with Xerath where we put a much earlier version of a rework onto the PBE, compared to others that get put there just before their final release.

Xerath is.
Some champion has to be the most unpopulair. If Xerath becomes more populair, then another champion takes his place.
