Additional Sylas Build Insights

LoL Sylas players may find him to be a complex character to build out properly. You will notice that his build is modified when he is up against either well-rounded or highly focused team compositions, demonstrating you shouldn't choose the same Sylas build every game of League of Legends

The most critical items to use in your champ's build are: Everfrost, Lich Bane, and Zhonya's Hourglass. Players who added these pieces in their gear had a much better winrate than players who utilized other builds for Sylas. Similarly, if you are trying to beat a mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing Sylas the Precision, and Sorcery runes. In recent matches, he won the greatest number of his rounds when using these runes.
