Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Greater Seal of Mana Regeneration
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
- Greater Quintessence of Ability Power: To start the game with some Ap(damage) to be more likely to you get the first blood .
- Greater Mark of Magic Penetration: The Magic Penetration is useful for Syndra skills, as she is an AP Caster less MR they have more Magic Damage you do.
- Greater Glyph of Magic Resist: A little bit of MR in the start helps you surviving and be a litle more tank against early high burst or poke champions like Nidalee LeBlanc, etc....
- Greater Seal of Mana Regeneration: Spamming your ability's may cause quick mana depletion, so mana regeneration is a awesome choice.

Minimum total damage: 270/405/540 (+60% Ability Power).
Don´t forget to have three or more balls on the ground and use Dfg first to do even more damage
I max out first Dark Sphere to have more poke damage next I max out Scatter the Weak to reduce the cooldown and to have a higher AoE Damage so I can be more safe( Jungler comes I stun him and run for my life or you can try to kill him or even try to get a double kill idk) and play more aggressive every time I land a stun on the enemy for last I max out Force of Will and I put a point into Unleashed Power every time I can(level 6, 11 and 16).
P.s:If you want you can max out Force of Will second and Scatter the Weak third but I prefer to max out Scatter the Weak second not third for me stun is better than slow or you can even put a point in each one like you pout a point in Scatter the Weak then you put another in Force of Will and you go like that until they are max out but I don´t recommend this cause you are wasting Syndra passive.
LoL Champion Lore: Syndra
Born with immense magical potential, Syndra loves nothing more than exercising the incredible power at her command. With each passing day, her mastery of magical force grows more potent and devastating. Refusing any notion of balance or restraint, Syndra wants only to retain control of her power, even if it means annihilating the authorities that seek to stop her.
Throughout her youth in Ionia, Syndra's reckless use of magic terrified the elders of her village. They took her to a remote temple, leaving her in the care of an old mage. To Syndra's delight, the mage explained that the temple was a school - a place where she could develop her talents under his guidance. Though she learned much during her time there, Syndra no longer felt her power growing as it had in her youth. Her frustration grew, and she finally confronted her mentor, demanding an explanation. He revealed that he had dampened Syndra's magic, hoping to help her learn control and restraint. Accusing him of betrayal, she advanced on the mage, commanding him to lift the spell that was holding her back. He backed away, telling her that if she couldn't control herself, he would be forced to nullify Syndra's magic completely. Furious, she summoned her power and dashed the old man against the walls. With her mentor dead, Syndra felt the rush of her unbounded potential for the first time in years. Though she had won her freedom, she refused to return to the society that had tried to steal her gift. Instead, Syndra decided to claim her former prison as a stronghold. Pushing the boundaries of her magic, she tore the structure from its foundations and raised it into the sky. Free to delve further into her art, Syndra now aims to grow powerful enough to destroy the weak, foolish leaders of Ionia - and anyone else who would dare to shackle her greatness.
"Power belongs to those who can wield it.''

Syndra Skins my opinion about them
I like Syndra default skin cause she looks like a goth and I love associating Dark Sphere in this skin to Black Holes :);
This is my favorite Syndra skin cause she looks like a Light Angel or something like that and like the default one i associate in this skin Dark Sphere to Suns xd;
This is the new Syndra skin so i dont know a lot about her cause i dont have it yet xd but she looks nice and I love the ability animation that she has in this skin.
Syndra is a prety funny champion to play if you like a champion with tons of damage that can kite a lot and with a amazing burst that can change the end of a game.If you have any comments, questions or queries about my guide, please don't hesitate to ask any questions.
Where Should put Wards
This is where you and your team should put wards .
Yellow: This wards protect your precious blue and red buff.
Blue: For protection depending on which lane you are on.
Red: To have vision of Dragon and Baron .
Orange: If you want to steal the blue or red buff with Force of Will.
