[Champion] Sylas First Impressions

  • Published on Jan 8, 2019
  • The first generic champion we've seen in a long time. Looks like he'll be a jungler as he has good terrain scaling in his kit, and as long as his ratios are reasonable I see him fulfilling the same role as Camille/Xin mostly.

    Now that he's out, have played around with him a bit, I feel like Sylas has the ability to be an AP 1v9 hard carry champion, from either Jungle, Top or Mid. Also, ultimates that scale off of only AD will scale off of his AP instead, so even picking ONLy AD teams wont prevent his ultimate stealing from being effective, despite his AP scaling on all of his abilities.

    If he had a different ultimate, I would be happy with this release, but the R kinda sinks the champ for me. Most of what the design team did lately just pisses me off and makes me apathetic towards league as a whole.

  • sisuphos
    sisuphos 5 months ago

    Again a champion that has like 4 passives on top of his actives. Why does his hook give a shield? Why can it be cast twice for extra dash, to jump terrain even more? Why does he get bonus damage against lows and extra healing for no reason? And he has an actual passive on top of these passives. This is the exact kind of formula that plaques champion updates and new designs; they get more passives than what 80% of the roster has in their entire kits.
    Could you add a passive on his ult that he generates true health based on the damage that he does using enemies ults? And before it's activated he goes in stealth and then channels a 0,25 second global root before casting? True health could only be damaged by true damage. His hook could use a free movement speed buff when cast towards enemy champion. And if his chain smash kills a minion he gets a free summoner spell and could it also shred 25% of enemies armor and MR. And could his passive cleave do Max % HP damage so he can go full tank?
    If you'd give all Sylas' extra bullshit "mechanics" (using quotes because they're just free shit on top of a already strong kit, no actual mechanincs) to let's say Amumu he would be instantly broken. Give Amu area heal on his W and shield on his Q and extra damage against low enemies on his E. Sounds like fun?

  • Melancholia

    Scuffed Illidan xD

  • Corum
    Corum 5 months ago

    A kind of Aatrox Q, a weird lovechild of Kayn's W and E spliced together on W, A love child of Nautilus Q and Camille E and his E, the ultimate is the only truly unique skill he has really. What would seperate him from these other champs now are his cooldowns, base and % scaling and in what position he's supposed to occupy. From the looks of things he can be played almost everywhere. He's an excellent support into tank match ups, stealing their high impact ultimates and having such mobility, healing and dive pressure for laning phase is really good.
    He can be played mid as an AP caster, he's be good against burst / control mages imo, most of them immobile and once they cycle their skills, Sylas can heal off of the AP scaling you buy for him as a mid laner and then all in with your lower cooldowns.
    He can be played jungle for obvious reasons, slow clear early but it ranks up to a really solid clear, good mobility around the jungle with his E and W, really good ganks due to his mobility and CC, perhaps relies on CC heavy lanes to secure kills early for example but a solid ganker never the less.
    And of course top, with the state of top lane favoring bruisers right now Sylas would be an interesting pick into the current roster with his respectable clear speed with Q max and his sustain with W, I think match ups that rely on winning early like Garen will suffer when facing this champion quite considerably as they will find no matter how much they wittle you, you'll just heal right back up and outscale them.
    I think Sylas worst match up top would probably be Jax, really weak ultimate to steal and if you fall even slightly behind, then CSing becomes a no go zone and you just have to concede the lane to him, given his E Q can trades can bully you throughout the entire game.

  • Duplicity
    Duplicity 5 months ago

    He beats melee matchups, gets shit on by syndra type champs, his e second cast cannot be used on terrain. His w heals a lot, his passive cannot critically strike but applies on hit effects meaning its possibly counted as an ability, i need to test ludens with it. His R is buggy on pbe. Hes not really overpowered tbh.

    All these new champions look stupid af. I want another reksai, or Asol looking fucker, not some shit you’d see in a crappy Netflix series. All these new champs look like edgy teens. A cube with chains would be more visually interesting and fresh than this champ
    And how can’t they come up with new ability ideas? smh. Make a skill shot that if it misses it explodes, but if it lands it makes a dink noise and does nothing. Make skillshots that bounce off walls. Make a skill that instantaneously swaps you with a teammate. Make a knockback that causes enemies to tunnel thru the wall on contact.
    Like ffs rito needs to stop making every champ mobility + insane damage + hard cc. Give me champs that play spatially with challenging but rewarding limits. Create more interesting counter-mechanics to jumpy bois

Or getting riven's ult for instance, you only get the windslash and not the attack damage steroid(im guessing this). Naaaah he's a jungler for sure!

  • Saim Qasim
    Saim Qasim 5 months ago

    The way that Dota2 does it with their version (Rubick), is that its the exact same version as the character he stole it from, so it's the same ratios etc. but it scales off the original owner of the spell. I think this is a good approach and maybe that's the case. It should be mentioned that Rubick is a support, so he is always going to be at a level deficit.

      Because neeko mirrors allies while sylas hijacks enemies. If neeko has that r she would take the ally ultimate. And that would be too strong. Imagine 2 karthus ults, each dealing 1400 damage to everyone.

    • Jaime Ruiz
      Jaime Ruiz 5 months ago

      I actually think... if the ults were switched it’d make more sense... he wants to get in your face because he’s an AP bruiser. So him being able to dash around with shields and dealing aoe dmg into an aoe slow, stun, and dmg fits. Especially because in his story when he was a kid he was about to get hit my lightning magic and he absorbed it and aoe blasted those around him. Also petricite, what his chains are made out of absorb magic and he can manipulate it so his ult should’ve been Neekos but better as in when he’s ulting to get it ready if he takes dmg it helps him do more dmg. Like old Galio ult. Then Neeko could take enemy ults and look like your team or take your teams ults. Idk. Just saying. It makes sense. For someone who can be any to have no true identity and take from others.
