Sylas's Bible - Is Magic Illegal?

Introduction Back to Top
Am I still dead? Well, looks like TheFwnK is back at making guides and putting effort in them again. Nor that I was only updating them for patches. >.>

Q: Why your guides are looking the same as your Fizz guide? You don't have imagination? You suck!
A: Yeah, Soon my Pyke guide will get the same Visuals soon. Imagination comes hard when working on something. Yes, I suck at making guides, Thank you for the compliment.

So, about Sylas. He is known as the greatest champion when coming in team fights. Back in the old days before his Rework, he was known as a champion with free win when hitting level 16. Wonder why? Was anti Mages and abusing every ultimate (it was like 7-10 seconds cooldown). But the Rework changed him from a Mage Bruiser into a Mage Assassin now.

I hope you'll enjoy this guide and learn a lot. You can leave a comment if you liked it. Give a comment why did you disliked the guide if you want, I will take your opinion in consideration and do something about it.
Thanks and enjoy I guess. >.>

MOBILITY: High
RESOURCE: Mana
REGION: Unknown
SKINS: 2
  • SYLAS: Is known as the Ultimate abuser, pretty annoying in some games, but useless when against champions with useless Ultimates for him. If fed, will one shot with E/W.
  • ULTIMATE: His ultimate is just for stealing other ultimates. Quite abusive with some Ultimate. Example like Pyke, can get fed with Pyke's Cuts. Sylas is great when it comes to team fights. Can one shot some of the enemies when in Late. You can say that His E hurts now. No? Was better if I was still dead because my jokes are still dead. >.>

Pros & Cons Back to Top
PROS
+can outplay+
+low CD late+
+extremely mobile+
+can engage fights+
+can dash through small walls+
+can dive under tower+
+can heal+

Sylas is known as most broken champion in late. Can one shot almost everything. His heal is now scaling with AP. And he can engage fight with types of Ultimates and abuse some of them.
CONS
-weak when behind-
-squishy-
-hard against tanks-
-mana loss-
-countered by lethality assassins-
-low damage early-

Sylas is like other champions (ex Jax), very weak if falls behind. Low damage in early, high mana cost, must get the lead on lane early. Can get it a pickle very easy.

Spells Back to Top

SPELLS FOR THE REBELLION
-

ALWAYS TAKE THIS

Flash
RANGE:425
COOLDOWN:300
Flash is known as the best spell in the game. Shocking, huh? Anyway, Flash is great when it comes to Sylas combos. Flash + Abscond / Abduct/ Kingslayer. Or for escaping from an enemy or a gank.


TIME TO CHOOSE

Ignite
RANGE:600
COOLDOWN:180
Ignite is great on Sylas if you want to be aggressive. We already know what it does. Burns the enemy slowly if you can't kill him when low hp.


Teleport
RANGE: -
COOLDOWN:360
Teleport is the best choice for Sylas in my opinion. Great for coming back to lane if you are missing a huge wave or lazy to walk. Can surprise the enemy from TOP or Bot.
