Guide updated for Patch 12.18, will provide update when Syndra midscope rework will hit live servers


Runes

  • Poke
  • Oneshot
  • Mobility
  • Comet


Explanation to every rune page.

  • • POKE RUNE PAGE is good into melee champions and maintains pressure early.
    Summon Aery
    does less damage than
    Arcane Comet
    but it always hit and is possible to proc by attack.
  • • ONESHOT RUNE PAGE is an option into 3+ squishy champions. On lane it's good into
    Akshan
    or
    Talon
    . Try to do
    Dark Sphere
    +
    Scatter the Weak
    +attack or
    Scatter the Weak
    combo every time
    Electrocute
    is up because you may run out of mana.
  • • MOBILITY RUNE PAGE is good into any scenario because
    Syndra
    lacks mobility. It's perfect option into champions that can easily get onto you such as
    Olaf
    or
    Yone
    for example.
  • • COMET RUNE PAGE is to trade and sustain lane into champions with larger range than
    Syndra
    which are
    Azir
    ,
    Lux
    and
    Xerath
    . Proc comet with
    Scatter the Weak
  • 

Summoner spells

  • 🔮



Heal
's movement lets you run away but heal efficiency is lower because of possible Grievious Wounds that can be applied by
Ignite
or
Death Lotus
.
Barrier
is better if you just want to block chunk of damage.

Maxing

Dark Sphere
is necessary since it's main source of damage.
Transcendent
's effect makes
Syndra
real champion post 9th level because
Dark Sphere
s start to hurt enemy champions with extra 20% damage against them.
Scatter the Weak
is good to max second because this is
Syndra
's main defensive tool so it's important to have it with lowest cooldown possible.




Itemization

  • Items

About itemization

If you start with

Tear of the Goddess
you may upgrade it to
Seraph's Embrace
so you'll get source of passive healing.

Cosmic Drive
is good if you'll need to spam abilities and space yourself in fights.

Mercury's Treads
are good when you play vs lots of easily hit CCs.

Farsight Alteration
makes you don't have to face check bushes.

Try to don't overstack magic penetration when enemy don't build any

Magic Resist
items.

What Syndra counters

  • Ahri
    is lane-countered by
    Syndra
    because of easier way to hit CC.
  • Akshan
    is countered if you play respectfully, keep
    Scatter the Weak
    to stun and kill him when he uses
    Heroic Swing
    or runs toward you.
  • Talon
    always jumps towards you so if you keep
    Scatter the Weak
    to stun him when he jumps or appears from
    Shadow Assault
    you should easily kill him.
  • Veigar
    is lane-countered, stun and damage him when he's using
    Baleful Strike
    .
  • Taliyah
    is easy to hit with
    Scatter the Weak
    when she uses
    Threaded Volley
    .
  • What counters Syndra

    • Ekko
      is almost unkillable after 6th level, try to poke and kill him early to secure gold and XP advantage.
    • Fizz
      is really hard to play, you should play with
      Electrocute
      and go for long trades before his 6th level, if he's ahead buy
      Zhonya's Hourglass
      and play near turret.
    • Lux
      has bigger range than
      Syndra
      . You should don't stay in wave so Lux can't poke you and clear wave at once.
    • Xerath
      with his really big range is really hard to kill, you should stay away from wave and try to stun him when he channels
      Arcanopulse
      .
    • Diana
      can dash once more after being stunned by
      Scatter the Weak
      you should poke her with
      Dark Sphere
      and keep distance when you don't have
      Scatter the Weak
      .
    • Kassadin
      is weak only before 6th level. Keep poking
      Kassadin
      and don't let him farm. After his level 6 keep
      Scatter the Weak
      .
    • Tricky matchups

      • Katarina
        should be poken down before 6 and you should keep
        Scatter the Weak
        for her
        Death Lotus
        .
        Nullifying Orb
        may help you survive her combo.
      • Always buy
        Zhonya's Hourglass
        when you play against
        Zed
        and poke him on first and second level.
      • Buy
        Oblivion Orb
        when you play against
        Sylas
        .
      • Wait with
        Scatter the Weak
        or
        Unleashed Power
        for
        Yasuo
        's
        Wind Wall
        when you play against him.
      • Keep distance from
        LeBlanc
        when
        Scatter the Weak
        is on cooldown and try to dodge her
        Ethereal Chains
        .

      


      General informations

      Tips

      • Use
        Scatter the Weak
        when enemy champion is attacking minion because he is locked in attack animation.
      • Force of Will
        is hard to hit so you should use it after you hit
        Scatter the Weak
        .
      • You can take jungle monters with you by
        Force of Will
        . There is strategy with stealing away enemy buff on level 1.
      • Don't push without knowing enemy jungler's position because
        Scatter the Weak
        may not be enough to keep you safe.
