Guide to Synergizing Sylas and Azir

Tips for Playing as Sylas with Azir

Space out your ability usage to get maximum effect from Petricite Burst.

Clever use of enemy ultimates can open up new possibilities to approach teamfights.

Wait for you or your enemy to reach low health before using Kingslayer for maximum effect.

Advice to Understand How Azir Will Play

Be a bird!

Think of Emperor's Divide as a defensive ability first and foremost. Use it when the enemy engages on you or your allies. Remember that your team can walk through the soldiers summoned by Emperor's Divide and use this to your advantage when enemy melee champions engage on you.

In the lane, try to position your soldiers between the enemy's minions and the enemy champion. This way you can use them both to last hit and to project threat onto your lane opponent.

Be careful about putting down both of the soldiers stored by Arise! Unless you're going all-in, always have a soldier in your back pocket if you need to escape over a wall or if you misposition your other soldier and need damage now.

Is Sylas better when played alongside Azir?

There is no ideal champion pairing for Sylas that will always be his best ally. Yet, Azir is a very bad companion for Sylas. By locking into the same side as Sylas, he drops their win rate by -5.2% to 44.1%. This signals that there is a very bad bond between Sylas and Azir that allows them to perform worse together than without each other.

Azir has a much greater difficulty compared to Sylas. That means you must be very careful when enlisting Azir comrades to play with, as they will need a much higher level of skill to do well with you.

Fighting cooperatively, you should expect to observe an overall large increase in your team’s capability to deal magical damage. When paired, these champs can blast through enemies with magic damage.

Conversely, by pairing Sylas and Azir together, you probably will not be granting your side very much protection for burst damage. Make sure to bring other champs on your team that offsets this hole in their capabilities.

Regardless of the ability of your Azir ally, you need to focus on increasing your gold income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you follow these simple suggestions, you should do well, regardless.
