Syndra is an iconic champion. So many players have shown off just how insane she is in pro play, but throughout Season 12 she hasn't gotten the same amount of love as she used to. Now, Riot is trying to spruce her up once more by completely reworking her kit in a mid-scope update. 

We're going to go over all the changes they've got planned for her and what they will do to make Syndra great again. With her being a staple in pro play with players like Bjergsen and Jensen showing off their skill we sure hope to see her in 2023 shine after her update – since the mid-scope is too late for Worlds 2022. 


Syndra Mid-Scope Update Abilities Revealed

On Twitter Riot TheTruexy revealed some of the reasoning behind the mid-scope changes. He explained that they wanted to open up her passive for bigger high moments in the game, as well as give her real feelings of power upgrades.

Also, the changes to her W should make her late game W feel much better while the E changes should make her E also more important in the early game. So, let's go over every single change that will hit the PBE server and soon live servers. 

Transcendent (P)
  • Syndra collects up to 120 Spliners via damaging enemy champions and gaining levels. Splinters of Wrath enhance Syndra and her abilities
  • Syndra Restores 20-215 (based on level 1-18) mana whenever she collects a Splinter from an enemy. She can gain Splinters via:
    • Damaging an enemy champion with 2 Abilities within 4 seconds grants (1/2/3 at levels 1, 11 and 18) Splinters (8s CD per target)
    • Leveling up grants Syndra 5 SPlinters of Wrath
    • Killing a Cannon minion grants 1 Splinters of Wrath
  • At 120 Splinters Syndra gains 15% total AP
  • Ability icons also change with upgrade
Base Stats
  • Base Health: 593 --> 563
Dark Sphere (Q)
  • Cooldown: 4s --> 7s
  • Mana Cost: 40/50/60/70/80 --> 40/45/50/55/60
  • AP Ratio: 65% --> 70%
  • 40 Splinters of Wrath: Dark Sphere can store 2 charges (1.25s CD between casts)
Force of Will (W)
  • Sphere Pickup Detection Radius: 400 --> 450
  • Now prevents non-Sphere units from dying for a brief period when picked up
  • 60 Splinters of Wrath: Force of Will does an additional 15%(1.5% per 100 AP) true damage
Scatter the Weak (E)
  • Magic Damage: 85-265(+60%AP) --> 75-235(+55%AP)
  • Scatter Angle: 34 degrees --> 56 degrees
  • Cooldown: 18-14s --> 15s
  • Stun Duration: 1.5s --> 1.25s
  • Reduced failure chances of close range E>Q combo
  • 80 Splinters of Wrath: Scatter the Weak's cone is increased (56 deg --> 84 deg) and also slows enemies by 70% for 1.25s (applied after initial CC)
Unleashed Power (R)
  • Grant Dark Sphere (Q) an additional 10/20/30 Ability Haste
  • Damage per Sphere: 90/140/190(+20%AP) --> 90/130/170(+17%AP)
  • 100 Splinters of Wrath: Executes champions below 15% max health

Her ultimate will now also execute when she's got 100 Splinters of Wrath. To compensate for this addition her ult has been made less powerful though. Do you think this is a necessity in her kit, or would you have rather seen Riot go a different route on this one? 

Syndra Mid-Scope Update Release Date

The Syndra mid-scope release date should be in LoL Patch 12.19. The changes will hit the PBE cycle for 12.19 and players will be able to give feedback to Riot via their PBE Reddit page. Sadly, these changes come too late for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship which will be played on LoL Patch 12.18. 

These changes coming so late into the season will give players time to adjust to the new Syndra passive and then once Season 13 starts they'll be able to wipe opponents off the map with their Syndra skills in the mid lane.
