Kinda outdated in the guide itself.

Nice guide, I like your matchup section for toplane, sadly there's a lot of champions in the extreme section :')

Thank you! I still have much work to do with the matchups section, but I feel most dominant bruisers will give Sylas a beating, especially after they get a few items. Sylas can make use of Aftershock's resistances for early trades and bully champions like Jax as an example but eventually he is going to get beaten up.

That's a shame. By the way, still sticking to maxing E last after the nerf that destroys the cooldown at level 1?

Is grasp good on new champion Sylas? And what do you think about aftershock?

I think for top lane running Resolve runes is the best option as Sylas's laning phase is quite weak so it helps out with that a bit. That being said I explained these things in the runes section but I'll give you the rundown here:

Grasp of the Undying allows you to heal a bit back in trades, and over the course of the game the rune will stack up a quite nice amount of HP, though late game it's pretty meh.

Aftershock gives Sylas tankiness he needs to initiate fights and disrupt the opposing team while your team follows up. You'll get a pretty reliable proc with Abscond / Abduct and I'm still on the fence do I like Grasp of the Undying or Aftershock more but I'll have to play more of Sylas to make that decision. It's also matchup dependent. If you are vs a ranged champ which you'll not fight that often in lane, Aftershock is the better choice since you won't get much value out of Grasp of the Undying.

Very good guide,but can you do for other roles like mid or jungle ? I would like to see that.And also you can add some synergies.Also it will be useful to post a link for his r interactions with all champions, some people think what will happen if I take nidalee's r or something like that.Much love <3

I was planning to do those sections, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I mainly play top lane so that was the section that was the most clear for me to create but surely in the following days I'll do the jungle and mid sections too.

I'll be adding a lot of stuff on this guide once Sylas is actually released and I get to play a bit more of him as playing on the PBE with high ping doesn't really show me his full potential. I'll be doing synergies, and I'll probably today start doing the ult interactions.

Really appreciate the comment and the kind words!
