Sylas is a great carry champion for solo Q especially during this preseason. He's doing very well against the majority of meta midlaner (mostly melee assassins such as Ekko, Fizz) He's flexible because of the different builds and playstyle which makes him a champion rarely useless in the majority of the games with good late game. His ultimate Hijack can be really gamebreak if paired with the good opponents ( Hecarim, Malphite)

- Ult Depends of Opponents -
- Weak Early Game -
- Hard to cs Well (10cs/min) -
- Not Easy to Master -
- High Mana costs -

The longer the game is, the more Sylas depends on his ultimate Hijack to have impact in teamfights, which makes him a bad pick against champions with uninteresting ultimates ( Zoe, Vayne, Udyr, Quinn) He is not a very good laner, especially against range lane bully such as Orianna, Lucian, Syndra) He doesn't really take advantage of slow games with few action because of his bad powerfarm.

Sylas is a good pick against champions with powerful ultimates (see the ultimate tier list) and against AP assassins. He does well against immobile mages with little poke. Ideally you want to wait until you see some opposing picks to analyze their ultimates or better, your match up. Sylas doesn't shine against comps with peel & range. Avoid first picking him !

The greatest counter to Sylas Mid are Cassiopeia, Irelia, Jayce & LeBlanc (some depends of the skill of your opponent). The greatest counter to Sylas Top are Darius, Irelia, Fiora & Garen. If he countered you in the draft, try to abuse his weak lane phase with poke, or constantly push him under tower to create action on the map with roam. Don't forget to build some anti-heal / /









Fleet Footwork is the best rune on Sylas in most games. This rune will never be a bad choice, however in some games Conqueror or Electrocute will be more optimized. This will give you sustain in lane which is really important on Sylas since you dont want to get XP denied because of bad trades/poke. Later, it will help you to take jungle camps and acess to late game. Same as Conqueror, with Fleet Footwork you have access to the Precision tree which is excellent on Sylas. Below is an analysis of the best secondary runes and shards.



Conqueror is the mastery that scales the best on Sylas but only in good situations. Don't take it in a complicated match up ( / ) or against a comp with a lot of range/disenge ( / ). You'll have a hard time stacking, and even harder to keep them! In addition to increasing your damage and gaining some sustain with the Conqueror, you have access to the Precision tree which is excellent on Sylas! Below is an analysis of the best secondary runes and shards.



Electrocute is the cheese rune on Sylas it is high risk/high reward (espically in low elo). You will have a lot more burst in the early game which can be usefull if you think you will get a lot of kills. This set up is good only if you can proc it often, you must play agressive ! Good player will punish the fact that you dont have Fleet Footwork in lane with heavy poke, this is why you dont want to run Electrocute in hard match up. Don't take it against heavy tank comp. Below is an analysis of the best secondary runes and shards.
