With Sylas being one of the best mid-laners right now, it seems like a perfect time to look at all his skins.

Sylas, The Unshackled, released in 2019, is one of the game’s most fun and versatile champions. He is a melee fighter who excels at short skirmishes and long team fights. Sylas is primarily played in the Mid lane, although he can be played in the Top lane in certain matchups.

Being a relatively new champion, Sylas comes with a unique mechanic, Hijack; with it, he can steal other champions’ ultimate abilities and use them on a cooldown. Because he doesn’t have an ultimate ability, Riot made his base kit very simple, although fun. But, when he hit level six, his play pattern dramatically changes depending on what ultimate ability he could steal, making him one of the most versatile champions in the game.

Not surprisingly, Sylas is also one of the most popular mid-laners in League of Legends. He has an excellent solo-queue win rate and play rate. He also has an outstanding professional play presence. In League of Legends Worlds 2022, he was the second most-picked champion and was one of the contributing factors in DRX Zeka’s Worlds championship win.

With the intro out of the way, let’s address why we are here today, and it’s to find out which is the best Sylas skin. So, let us look at her current skins and see if they are worth the RP.

How Many Sylas Skins are There in 2023?

As of writing this article, Sylas currently has Six Skins in total. Although he only has six skins, his skins are pretty unique.

Before we go into more detail about the Sylas skins, let’s first organize all of Sylas’s skins using Riot’s skin tier system to understand their values better.

  • Timeworn or Classic (520 RP): 0
  • Budget or Deluxe (750 RP): 0
  • Standard or Superior (975 RP): 
  • Epic (1350 RP): 4 (Freljord Sylas, PROJECT: Sylas, Battle Wolf Sylas, Lunar Wraith Sylas)
  • Legendary (1820 RP): 0
  • Mythic (Special): 2 (Prestige PROJECT: Sylas, Ashen Slayer Sylas)
  • Ultimate (3250/2775 RP): 0

Best Sylas Skins

Now we’ll rank each of the Sylas skins released in League of Legends thus far. We will rate them by putting them from worst to best.

6. Battle Wolf Sylas

  • Release Date: March 31, 2022
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 9

Battle Wolf Sylas has nine chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Battle Wolf Sylas chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Battle Wolf Sylas chroma bundle. The Nightwire version of the Battle Wolf Sylas chroma is an event-only chroma.

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

Although released in 2022, Battle Wolf Sylas is probably Sylas’s worst skin. First, the whole animal-themed power ranger doesn’t go with an anti-hero character like Sylas. Secondly, his models, especially the chain model, look very unpleasant. And finally, the effects of the skin are pretty bad compared to the other skins Sylas has.

5. Ashen Slayer Sylas

  • Release Date: September 22, 2022
  • Price: 100 ME
  • Chroma: 1

Ashen Slayer Sylas has a single chroma called the Emberwoken chroma. It is a limited-time chroma available for 40 ME.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

The Ashen Slayer Sylas is another disappointing Sylas skin especially compared to how Ashen Knight Pyke was. The skin was initially named Ashen Knight Sylas, but due to fan backlash and Sylas not looking like a knight, Riot changed the name to Ashen Slayer Sylas.

Although the skin has a decent model and good VFX/SFX, it is definitely not worth the 100ME it costs.

4. Lunar Wraith Sylas

  • Release Date: January 25, 2019
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 6

Lunar Wraith Sylas has six chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the Lunar Wraith Sylas chroma can be obtained by purchasing the Lunar Wraith Sylas bundle.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

Although Lunar Wraith Sylas was released along with Sylas himself, the skin still holds up and is one of the better Sylas skins. Lunar Wraith Sylas has solid VFX/SFX and a good-looking model. Overall an excellent Epic skin.

3. PROJECT: Sylas

  • Release Date: May 27, 2021
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 9

Battle Wolf Sylas has nine chromas, and each chroma costs 290RP. The Ruby version of the PROJECT: Sylas chroma can be obtained by purchasing the PROJECT: Sylas chroma bundle. The Reckoning version of the PROJECT: Sylas chroma is an event-only chroma.

PROJECT: Sylas Chroma 2

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX
  • Voice Filter

The PROJECT: Sylas skin hails from the ever-popular PROJECT skin line. Being from such a popular skin line, it’s evident that Riot puts a lot more effort into the skin, and it shows. The skin has an excellent model, a quirky recall animation, and a solid VFX/SFX.

2. Prestige PROJECT: Sylas

  • Release Date: May 27, 2021
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX
  • Voice Filter

Prestige PROJECT: Sylas is the Prestige version of the base PROJECT: Sylas skin. The skin comes with a slightly different model, a new VFX/SFX, and a prestige look. It’s a great skin, but sadly, it’s a limited-time skin. But if it comes back in the near future, it’s a must-buy.

1. Freljord Sylas

  • Release Date: January 10, 2020
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 4

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New VFX/SFX

Freljord Sylas is one of the best Sylas skins out there and one of the few lore-inspired champion skins in the game. The character model here is unique; it also looks like an Assassin’s Creed character with the hood. His chains are also frozen in the skin, which portrays the frigid environment of the Freljord.

Overall, a must-buy skin if you like playing Sylas.
