Champion Build Guide

Quick but Complete Sylas Guide (POST-"Rework")

By Roarus
I'm Roarus, but can call me Ru.
I play league since season 3-4 but never played often due college and work, however there are few champions I know very well and I would like to share different ways to play with them.
First of all, I recomend you to read the notes on every Build, due to it's were I explain detailing why and different variations.

How to play Sylas?
Sylas is a Mage, however he has facets of assassiin or fighter. Moreover, Sylas has a complete skillset, which owes to The Unshackled to make all type of plays and lots of different ways to this champion.

He's not in his best moment, however, any champion masterized can win lots of games, at least in mid-low elo (Unranked-Diamond).
Guide - Builds
As you can see, I set out different type of builds. This is possible thanks to the versatillity of this champion. Obviously there will be on better than other, but everyone has its function and allows different game style.

Burst Mage: Bursting enemies. Great 1v1, teamfighting, objectives and the most competitive way to play Sylas.

Roamer: Roam and carry lanes, do objectives, take towers, etc. Nice on SoloQ in low Elos, where the players had a bad macrogame and ganking is e***y.

Freljord Sylas: Glacial Augment, add CC and kill slowly. Great CC and TF. Cheaper than Burst Mage but low Burst Damage.

Iceborn GOD: Adds more damage to the Glacial Augment way. Late Game Build that supplies the fault of damage from FrelJord Sylas build. Add more mana pls.

Impacts: Focused on Syla's pasive. Only recomended for Splitpushing or going vs tanks, which ones you cant kill them with your burst and need a sustained damage.
Bad at teamfights.

Tanky: Tank with Syla's chest. Low damage but heavy tank. Only when you are not the responsible of doing damage on your team.
Guide - Runes
My fav Runes are Glacial Augment (Cringe CC), Electrocute (Burst), Phase Rush (Safe and Chase) and Conqueror (More Sustained Damage).

ALL the MINOR runes and STAT SEAL can be replaced with the one you fit better in your team.
Jungle Sylas
Riot don't want Sylas in the jungle but you can play it the same way you play Sylas laner. Change Luden's for AP Jungle Item, or build Cinderhulk and GG.
Important tips
Buy wards.
See ya
Hope you like it.
