League of Legends has a new hero for players to check out. Sylas the Unshackled is a magic wielding damage dealer who uses "merciless magical attacks" that takes down enemies with "stone and steel". 

Sylas's abilities include:

  • Chain Lash - a repetitive attack that "beats down" enemies
  • Petricite Burst is a whirling attack that damages all enemies surrounding him
  • Abscond is a positioning attack
  • Abduct allows Sylas to hook a hostage
  • Kingslayer Strike is a "crushing" attack

  • Crush your foes in combat by weaving in basic attacks after each spellcast for maximum damage. The perfect sequence includes a Petricite Burst after every ability, leaving enemies bruised and broken—if not dead.

  • Consider all your options when Hijacking ultimates. What do you need most right now? What might be critical a little later? Seizing a brutal finishing move could clinch your current skirmish, but taking a powerful crowd control spell might win you the next teamfight.

  • You can’t Hijack the same enemy for a while after you take their ability, so plot out the full revolt before you start stealing ults. There’s no rush to use what you have, but hesitate too long and you’ll miss opportunities to unleash even more ultimates. Triumph over your opponents by picking the right time—and power—to turn against them.
