Self
Sylas's Passive
Sylas's Passive
Casting an ability grants a stack of Petricite Burst for 4 seconds, up to 3 stacks. Whilst Sylas has a stack of Petricite Burst, he gains 125% bonus attack speed.

Sylas' next basic attack is modified to whirl his chains around him, dealing 130% attack damage (+25% of ability power) converted into magic damage to his primary target, and 40% attack damage (+20% of ability power) in magic damage to nearby secondary targets.

Damage to secondary targets executes minions below 25 health.

The empowered attack applies on-hit effects to the primary target but disables Sylas' critical strikes' bonus damage. Spell effects only apply to secondary targets.

Sylas lashes out two lines that converge to the target location and extend beyond it up to a maximum range, dealing 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 / 120 (+40% of ability power) in magic damage and slowing enemies hit for 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% over the course of 1.5 seconds.

After a 0.6-second delay, the chains' intersection detonates, dealing 60 / 115 / 170 / 225 / 280 (+80% of ability power) in magic damage. Against minions and monsters the detonation deals 60% reduced damage for 100 / 170 / 240 / 310 / 380 (+120% of ability power) in total.

Sylas can no longer cast this ability together with E - Abduct.

Active: Sylas casts his hijacked ultimate ability without cost, scaling based on Hijack's rank and his own statistics.

All Hijacked ultimates and abilities that do not scale with ability power have their attack damage ratios converted to ability power ratios, scaling with 0.6% AP per 1% total AD, and 0.4% AP per 1% bonus AD.

Sylas cannot reset his basic attack while casting Hijack onto an enemy champion.
