League of Legends Reveals New Champion: Sylas, the Unshackled

League of Legends finally reveals the first champion to join their roster for 2019, and his name is Sylas, the Unshackled. As a melee type fighter, Sylas uses his merciless magic attacks to crush his enemies.

Let’s check out his skills:

PASSIVE – Petricite Burst

Sylas passive allows him to whirl his chains around him after casting a spell, damaging any nearby enemies.

Q – Chain Lash

Chain Lash enables Sylas to lash out with his chains, causing enemies damage and slightly slowing their movements. After a short delay, the intersection of the chains will detonate, applying enemies an increased slow and damage.

W – Kingslayer

Sylas lunges at his enemy target with a powerful strike, damaging the enemy and then healing himself. Targeting an enemy with low health will increase the damage. If Sylas is at low health though, the heal is increased instead.

E – Abscond/Abduct

Abscond allows Sylas to dash a short distance and shield himself.

After a short time, he can recast the skill, turning it to Abduct. He then whips out his chain, stunning and damaging the first enemy it hits. He then pulls himself towards the target.

R – Hijack

Hijack is Sylas’ ultimate skill. He hijacks an enemy’s ultimate for his own use, whenever the ability is off cooldown. Upon recasting the ability, he can then use the stolen ultimate skill like it’s his own.


To try and test Sylas gameplay, he is now available to purchase via Riot Points and Influence Points. Just make sure to download the latest patch of League of Legends on your PC or gaming laptop.
