    Some mana reg runes¿

    As Syndra, you shouldn't be spamming your Q to CS early on, and careful mana management plus blue buff can easily give you enough regen to win your lane. Syndra has no innate escapes, and since she won't want to sacrifice damage for survivability, out goes the MP5.

    Cheers!

    Small error in the 'runes masteries, and summoner spells' page. Both the quick guide and the text here recommend scaling mana regen seals, but the image is for flat mana regen seals. There are also some differences in the masteries.

    Excuse me everyone, but the following is the items I get for Syndra, in order. Please tell me if there are any kinds of improvements.

     

    Doran's ring + 2 pots or Boots + 4 pots or Faerie charm + pots + ward or Crystalline Flask + wards or pots

    Normally I take dorans and 2 pots.

    MUST GET CHALICE ON FIRST BACK, then take boots, pots and wards if any left over money.

    Later go straight for rabadon by buying atleast needlessly large rod, zhonya if AD mid or losing or being focused way too hard.

    Then depending on situation either get DFG or upgrade chalice into athene's.  Sorc shoes are somewhere in between.

    Then void staff, and start going for guardian angel

    Why don't you build DFG? It provides tons of AP and syndra can 100-0 anyone with it.

  • #62 Run3w0lf

    i've played syndra a few times at botlane, and it seems to work pretty well, here's my build that i use for both mid and botlane:

    Crystalline Flask, 2x Mana Potion, and a Health Potion. then:

    Tear of the Goddess > Sorcerer's Shoes > Archangel's Staff > Haunting Guise. and lastly:

    Rabadon's Deathcap > Void Staff > Liandry's Torment > Athene's Unholy Grail

    Comments?

    syndra is very awesome champion but i see , theres more better building items .. you can start with doran's ring for more ability power and also mana regen on killing minions .. 

    Athene's Unholy Grail would really solve Syndra's mana problem till end of game .. and focus on have 40% cooldown reduction to have max reduction for all her abilities and also it help lot to Ultimate with 6 balls with can equal to 900 damage if u have only 300 ap :) 

    i tried it and it really worked .. and about her counters .. Talon and Kassadin is very good counter to her .. Else i dont think so :)

    After playing a LOT of Syndra, I can definitely say that basically anything with high mobility (especially jump abilities, ie Kat, Talon, etc) typically counter out skillshot based champs like her. People like Zil can be countered with a banshee's veil, or other item(s). High CDR is definitly a plus, and stat priorities for her i'd prob rank at:

    mPen>CDR>mRegen/HP>HP/mRegen>MoveSp

    For itemization, Blackfire Torch is definately the best item to grab on Syndra and I rush it in all maps applicable. For Summoners Rift however and Liandry's Torment, I usually start with boots+pots and rush Haunting Guise or a chalace if I can tell it will be a farm lane/ or a onesided duel against more burst than me/ ...or im just harassing them out of lane so well that i want to keep them out longer lol. Haunting Guise + PenBoots gives a great ammount of early-mid spell pen, and from this point I'd either try and keep blue buff on me and either start building a deathcap or Rylai's Scepter. Rylai's + Liandry's Torment gives you the tanky damage you need against higher burst teams, or very tanky teams that are hard to burst down. From here you want to finish your chalice (ive been prone to entering mid game with penBoots, HauntingG, ChalaceOfH, and a codex for the extra CDR. 

    On Syndra, if you can afford it and are getting extremely fed, the IDEAL burst to death build would be:

    ---Average enemy team: Boots > HGuise > penBoot > NLR/ Full Deathcap < > DFG*  (DFG gives more burst than Deathcap on one target imo, mainly because it does %based damage + buffs your burst. This helps a lot on TANKY teams or teams that have good escapes where you need to burst from full to dead in under 2 seconds...)

    --Tanky / Bursty enemies / your team sucks: Boots > HGuise > penBoots > Chalice > Codex/GiantsBelt > Rylai's, Liandry's and Grail (in whichever order you need, wheather you need more cdr, hp+slow, or %based damage). From here you can decide on what your final items should be, either one Defensive and one Offensive, or 2 def / 2 off. Good items being, banshee's veil for burst teams or teams with strong single target abilities, deathcap for more rounded burst, Zhonya's for armor, ap and utility (syndra has low cooldowns at max level when built proper, that couple seconds of stasis can AND HAS BEEN the deciding factor in getting aced or scoring a pentakill), or even a Void Staff if the enemy team recognises the danger you bring and has begun building MR.

    As for dealing with high-mobility characters, there's little you can do buy build the tankier route, though if anyone has any additional opinions on this i'd be glad to hear suggestions.

    Updated build eh? Starting with flask five pots ward and mana pot seems a tad outdated to me...

  • #59 Asilwen

    Updated, sometimes some things slip through the cracks.

  • #57 freedompotatoes

    Great farming champion and easy to last hit with his AA's animations

    Pretty sure Syndra is a she...

  • #55 Glov

    This guide needs to be updated... with the increased cost to Crystalline Flask, is it still worth buying?

    Also, is it really okay for Syndra to only get Athene's after Liandry and Archangel? does she needs both? 

  • #56 HomerX221

    For cristalline flask, yes it is still worth it.

  • #53 lob123

    No offense, but this guide is really "bare bones".

    Tips and tricks...  use the W to help farm at tower if you get pushed in - you can snatch minions away from tower shots, then throw them + auto attack to get the CS, as well as hit other minions to get CS.

    Use W to lead into your Q's. Grab minions, throw them to damage + slow, then Q on top of enemy heads.  Throwing a minion isn't expected as much as throwing a sphere after you've dropped one already.  And its a quick double tap with smart casting to drop the W on their heads and follow with a Q.  its a lot of harass damage, more than people expect. 

    Use W to kite - you can W while running.  Drop a sphere in front of yourself as you are running away, grab it with W and throw it behind you.  instant slow.  Do the same with minions as you run away. 

    Use W to set up skill shots for your allies.  If there is a minion blocking an amumu bandage, GRAB THE MINION.  Same with lux bindings, morgana bindings, etc. etc. 

    W vs E:  I prefer maxing W second, because even with rank 5 and cooldown reduction, cooldown on E is 10 seconds, you can't rely on getting more than 1 in a fight (especially if you save it for mid-fight rather than leading with it).  So rank 1 in that skill is all you need for utility, and relying on it for damage is pretty poor. 

  • #50 Shookzor

    my opinion:

    after u maxed dark sphere u need to max force of will....u need scatter the weak only for stun -> a lot damage u make by q and w

    my combo :  Dark Sphere + Force of Will +Scatter the Weak+ Dark Sphere +Unleashed Power  = no one can survive)

    owned all of her counters , haven't played against veiga can't tell u brene

     GL

  • #48 brene

    lol how is veigar not listen in her counters


    why are you sponsored again?

  • #52 HomerX221

    Actually, you can counter veigar by just gameplay, so he really isn't  a  hard counter to any champion...

  • #54 lob123

     You can itemize against Veigar to some degree on all AP champs - start with penetration items more than straight AP, - sorc boots/Mask/abyssal - and dual MR/AP items - for the laning and mid game phase.  If you just go straight for a deathcap against a veigar, you better be skilled enough to outplay him and not get 1 shot by his ult, and that's on any AP champ.  Syndra has strong enough base damage on her Q and W that this works pretty well, and since veigar will sometimes grab an early chalice for mana and MR, the extra Mpen is even better.
