Sylas Matchups Overview

Sylas General information

Sylas tips and tricks

During the laning phase, think twice before using your Abscond / AbductE. Check the map to ensure the Jungler’s not nearby and ready to gank you. If they’re not nearby, you can use your Abscond / AbductE aggressively.

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.

Play around your Passive as much as possible to deal more damage while trading.
