[11.10] SPJohnWD's Sylas Top Hyper Carry

Thanks to Searz for the awesome guide format! You can find it here.

Hi, I'm known as SPJohnWD, a small time streamer on Twitch who has recently started playing Sylas, initially in mid but transferred over to the top lane. Within a month I managed to climb from Plat 4 to Plat 1 across 80 or so games, here's my op,gg.
The reason behind me creating this guide is so that I can potentially help out other individuals who wish to start playing Sylas but dislike going mid and would rather play top lane, that is exactly what I wanted.
Pros and Cons

+ Great sustain mid to late
+ High damage (One shots squishies)
+ Ability to engage
+ Insane roaming
+ High skill cap
+ Adaptable to enemy compositions easily
+ Does not get boring due to his unique ult

- No disengage tool
- Relies on hitting E2 and Everfrost
- Countered by heavy tanks/heal reduction
- Falls behind if can't roam and affect the map
- Difficult to manage all possible ult synergies with kit
- Easily counter picked
Thank you
Thank you for checking out my guide, pretty barebones for now as this is my first time making a guide but I will be updating this guide with each patch so look forward to new content here.

I hope this guide has helped you out and if so, I'd appreciate if you dropped a vote up.


Nothing of note. Going to test out Sylas jungle this patch.
