Sylas Matchups Overview

Sylas General information

Sylas tips and tricks

Think twice before stealing somebodies Ultimate. As Sylas’ Ultimate HijackR can be game-changing, make sure you take the most impactful enemy Ultimate for late game team fights.

When ganking, use your Abscond / AbductE as close as you can to the enemy so it’s harder for them to dodge the CC and escape the gank.

Weave in auto attacks whenever you use your abilities to help clear the jungle more effectively. Specifically, make sure your auto-attack before reactivating your Abscond / AbductE.
