Is Sylas better when played alongside Rek'Sai?

There is no ideal companion for Sylas that will 100% of the time be his ideal teammate. Yet, overall, Rek'Sai is a very typical companion for Sylas. By being on the same team as Sylas, he improves their win rate by 0.4% to 49.0%. This signals that there is a weak bond between Sylas and Rek'Sai that allows them to perform better together than alone.

Rek'Sai has a lower difficulty than Sylas. That means Sylas players don't need to be cautious when finding Rek'Sai teammates to fight alongside, as they will have to have a relatively low level of skill to play well with you.

When playing cooperatively, Sylas players should expect to see an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to destroy wih physical damage. When paired, these two can tear through the other team with a lot of physcial damage.

In contrast, by bringing Sylas and Rek'Sai together, you will not be giving your other allies very much crowd control. We recommend you bring other champions on your team that offsets this relative hole in their abilities.

Regardless of your Rek'Sai ally's skill level, you should focus on maximizing your gold income, outlasting your enemies, and taking down objectives. If you do this, you should do well anyway.
