Riot has unveil today the new upcoming champion Sylas the Unshackled and his amazing Abilities with patch 9.1 on Universe the game’s official lore platform.
His kit reveals him to be a bit of a bruiser or drain tank, sort of like Illaoi, but with a lot more crowd control. As a trade, his ultimate ability is a lot less reliable than hers, which can be used as a powerful tool in every teamfight. Sylas’ ultimate ability power depends completely on the champions around him, because he can siphon their abilities to use for himself. It can be hit-or-miss, but it introduces a brand new mechanic to League gameplay, and it looks incredibly fun.
All new champion Sylas abilities is here below:
Passive: Petricite Burst
After casting a spell, Sylas’ next basic attack whirls his chains around him, damaging nearby enemies.
Q: Chain Lash
Sylas lashes out with his chains, damaging and slightly slowing enemies. After a brief delay, the intersection of the chains detonates, applying an increased slow and damaging enemies again.
Sylas lunges at a target with a powerful strike, damaging them and healing himself. If the enemy is at low health, the damage is increased; if Sylas is at low health, the heal is increased.
Sylas dashes a short distance and shields himself.
For a short time, he can recast the ability to whip out his chains, stunning, damaging, and pulling himself to the first enemy hit.
Sylas hijacks an enemy’s ultimate for his own use.
Enemies can still use their ultimates if Sylas takes them. Sylas can take an enemy’s ultimate whenever Hijack is off cooldown, but can’t hijack the same enemy for a while after.
The new champion Sylas should arrive with upcoming patch 9.1 in the next week.
