Quick tips to play Sylas

While your

SylasWW

provides sustain, do not rely on it in the laning phase as it doesn’t heal you too much.

Sylas’ Ultimate

SylasRR

can be very powerful into a lot of matchups. Stealing a strong Ultimate

SylasRR

can decide the fate of a teamfight, so think twice when using your Ult.

Sylas

SylasEE

gives you 2 Passive Stacks (1 for the dash and 1 for the CC) and every other ability gives you 1 Stack. Using your AA after every spell cast is key on Sylas.
