What do you think of the Sylas matchup, Frostbite?
FrostbiteMW (3) | May 17, 2021 5:18am
ok sorry for the giga late reply xD
Sylas matchup is somewhat even, you normally fall behind early game since Xeraths early is weak.
Once you have Lost Chapter it begins to even out a bit and you can start poking him, but if you get too close he will still kill you

it worked realy well. first time using it gave me an S while before i got C or B+.

After 50+ Xerath games, I can definitely see the power of Absolute Focus now. Considering that most of the time if you're getting knocked down on HP, you're probably poking/backing/dead anyway. I appreciate the wisdom anyway =)

Is there a certain point where "X:YZ time active" of Absolute Focus definitively becomes better than the other secondary ends up being better than Transcendence? CDR is cheap via items, sure, but even with constantly poking, sometimes it can be hard to keep your very meager HP total above 70%. Maybe it's just better to back at that point and not risk dying?

Hey, sorry for late reply! good question tho.

Transcendence is also a good way to go tbh. When u have Ludens + Zhonyas or only the Codex + blue buff you should be at 50% CDR which gives you +20AP.
Compared to Absolute Focus you get ~20AP at lvl 12.

Now the thing is youre not gonna buy more CDR since you need Raba + Void in most games. Even going Zhonyas or Codex 2nd item is a bit awkward since its better to go Raba or Oblivion Orb.

That being said there isnt much of a difference between the 2 runes.
All in all Absolute Focus gives you more AP later on and you can focus on building Mpen or AP.
Transcendence lets you cap at 40% cdr, which is way better then the 30% Absolute Focus when you have blue buff but provides a bit less AP.
