Extensive Sylas Changes Headline League of Legends Patch 10.1 Champion Adjustments

Sylas received major changes in League of Legends Patch 10.1
Sylas received major changes in League of Legends Patch 10.1 | Riot Games

League of Legends Patch 10.1 arrives Wednesday, bringing balance changes for 17 champions, chief among them Sylas.

Riot Games has struggled to balance Sylas since the champion's release January 2019, leading the League of Legends developer to take more drastic measures in this patch. Rather than shuffle around numbers on his abilities, Riot Games has weakened his early game laning ability and pushed him toward a role in the mid lane. The developer has also scrapped his Abscond/Abduct (E) into Chain Lash (Q) combo and slowed his basic attack pattern.

The other champions changed in Patch 10.1 include Aphelois, Aurelion Sol, Azir, Corki, Jax, Jayce, Kalista, Kassadin, Kog'Maw, Mordekaiser, Nami, Sejuani, Shyvana, Varus, Vi and Zyra. See the full list of changes below.
