Yeah, there will be the issue that his R on many champions will straight up do nothing. Nidalee,
Elise, Jayce, Karma, Heimerdinger, Kalista, Darius, Illaoi (even if he can use her tentacles he has nothing in his kit that'll make them slam so it's worthless), Kai'Sa (he has no way to apply plasma stacks so he'll never be able to cast it), LeBlanc, Vayne.

That's a pretty long list...

I looked for a Sylas guide, but no champion page exists, when will it be available?

He'll be added shortly before he's released. Likely next week, maybe earlier.
Thanks to Hoppermh for the sig!

There was an answer to this somewhere in reddit, or at least I read that from a comment at S@20.
Nidalee, Elise and Jayce should actually do what they do, so until you reactivate the ult you gain all of their abilities (so cougar abilities, spooder ablities and hammer abilities).
Karma and Heimerdinger works similar: I didn't understand about Karma if you actually gain her abilities too, but anyway you empower your next ability, while Heimerdinger you can use one of his empowered abilities.
LeBlanc is the only one in the list that should work as intended, you can copy your last ability, actually that would be broken af. Illaoi you can do damage and you are still unstoppable, niche use but still worth something. With Vayne you still get the AD bonus.
The real problems are Kalista (since you can link with anyone), Darius and Kai'Sa. For the last two you should have the same champ in your team, so yeah nearly impossible or impossible in a draft/ranked game.

edit: after watching heisendong's video where he plays sylas they solved the Kalista problem by just puttin The Black Spear in the shop for free. Fair enough

edit n2: always in the same video, the enemy sylas steals Kai'Sa ultimate and it seems that he can use it freely without the need of applying passive's stacks. I guess it works the same for Darius

edit n3: ...it applies Vayne's ult fully, so you steath during Q and you have the reduced cd on it

edit n4: or just look at vandril's video, maybe it's better

When we'll be able to make guides for Sylas or use bbcode icons for his skills on site?
