“Start Doran's Blade in this matchup, This matchup is fairly easy for urgot since hitting E should be easy for you with him being meele, plus a lot of sylas players will try to E in on you and then you can just E them and kill him, Executioners calling is recommended in this matchup since he heals a ton with W and they usually run conqueror, I just go for trades whenever my E is up in this matchup and it's smooth sailing, if you miss E then just back off until it's back up. and try your best to dodge his Q's as well. If he steals your ultimate try your best to either dodge it or kill him first, if you guys both ult at the same time, whoever gets the other person low enough first for the pull wins.”
“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Play aggressively. Always inform your team (by spam pinging) when he clones your R. Ignite early to prevent his W heals. Don't get hit by Q2.”
“This matchup is dependant on the main rune Sylas chooses. Aftershock or Electrocute dictates how you should be fighting him. You need to by all means use your minions to body block his (E) dash into his (E) chain CC, especially if he is running Aftershock. If he misses this ability, make sure to run him down. He is squishy as hell if he misses. If he does hit you, however, there is not much you can do, because you let him land the ability and you're going to be taking a shit ton of damage. Throw your (R) on his (R) to track where he places them or buy Oracle Lens to remove the mushrooms he placed.
“Don't let him heal you.
You can try to fight after level 6.
Wait for your R and counter its R your stuns.”
“The only real threat Sylas holds is his disgustingly high healing at low HP. Executioner's Calling is required. While two of his abilities are skillshots, it's much less likely to be the one who looks to engage so he will be aiming from point blank. You out burst him but he will look to chase you with his E. Side step the chains if you can't dash. When going for the kill, saving your W for the killing shot is a good plan to hopefully burst him down before he can get a huge heal off.”
“TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T EAT TOO MUCH POKE. KEYSTONE DOESN’T MATTER. DSHIELD IS A GOOD START BUT DBLADE WORKS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT ABOUT BEING ABLE TO DODGE HIS POKE.
Sylas is not a difficult matchup for Darius at all. He might have an easier time in midlane but not up here in top. Sylas is somewhat difficult to land your first Q on due to his shield dash and him being able to pull himself to you. But other than that he is very free to fight against. Just grab a Dshield as it should be enough on its own to negate his poke. And poking you is all he can do as if he ever gets in the range of your W or E, he is just dead. Freeze him off of farm and kill him if he ever steps up. If he ever becomes an issue, get executioner’s calling as it helps a lot against his healing. Unless the Sylas is smurfing vs you, you should be able to beat his face in.”
“You win if you dodge his Q and land your Q pokes. Parry his stun which is predictable as he dashes right before stunning. If he steals your ult, hes trolling. You will hit the vitals faster and you know how they work. Get executioners as your second item to prevent his healing from his W and if he does complete your ult.”
“Annyoing with those heals, Early Sheen and Executioner's vs Sylas. Remember about his W healing increased by 50% against targets below 40% health so be careful diving him or trying to kill when you got low hp.”
“Not a big threat, the Sylas lane is pretty straightforward. He can't trade with us efficiently as a melee caster. Executioners Calling is very good in this lane because his W does heal him an annoying amount. Don't take too much poke from his Q and if he's spamming it let him push the wave and freeze under turret.
This lane shouldn't be a problem, play standardly.
“Pressionar o Ataque - Lâmina de Doran. Início da lane é bem tranquilo, corta cura é uma boa contra ele se tiver fortinho, 1 kill pro Sylas pode decretar a derrota na lane. Obs: a maioria dos Sylas não vai saber usar sua ult e ela é bem ruim no geral pro Sylas.”
