Champion Build Guide
Raised in one of Demacia’s lesser quarters, Sylas of Dregbourne has come to symbolize the darker side of the Great City. As a boy, his ability to root out hidden sorcery caught the attention of the notorious mageseekers, who eventually imprisoned him for turning those same powers against them. Having now broken free, Sylas lives as a hardened revolutionary, using the magic of those around him to destroy the kingdom he once served… and his band of outcast mage followers seems to grow by the day.
Sylas is a melee burst mage assassin with unique ability to steal enemy champions ultimate and good outplay potential. Sylas has excellent teamfights due to his R and so big heal from W and AoE damage from impowered autoattacks. In addition, all his abilities with 45% cdr are spamlable and do decent damage. This kit of almost instant heal makes Sylas an extremely good duelist with lockdown a single target on E and dash to making him mobile. Thanks to so good scaling and carry potential Sylas is rewarding to play.
