League of Legends fans have been clamoring for more news on the game’s latest champion since early details teased an entirely unique kit that had some players apprehensive, but full details on the character have released.

Even though Sylas has been on the PBE for January, Riot Games released the Champion Spotlight for their latest combatant that properly breaks down his kit and ways to use it.

Sylas will join the likes of Kassadin and Kennen as mages who want to get as near as enemies as possible to deal the most damage.

Riot GamesSylas is bound to wreak havoc once he’s released onto the Rift.

His Chain Lash ability makes Sylas strike with his chains that hurt and slow players hit, and deals additional damage while further slowing players caught in the explosion that occurs at the intersection of his metal whips.

The Kingslayer ability damages an enemy champion while healing Sylas. The heal is increased if Sylas is at low health, as does the damage if the enemy is at low health.

For the two-part E ability, Abscond and Abduct, lunges Sylas forward and a recast will throw out his whip that will pull him toward and damaging an enemy if it connects.

His controversial Ultimate, Hijack, has varying degrees of usefulness depending on which champion was targeted. After throwing out his chains and taking an Ult, Sylas will have a cooldown for his ult and for the champion it was used on, preventing against spamming one enemies ult.

His bruiser style of play comes together with his passive, Petricite Burst, that gives an AoE empowered auto attack after using an ability. With his two part E, gap closer and slows, Sylas can chain devastating combos in quick succession.

The latest champ is sure to attract a lot of players due to his diverse kit that can sway any battle on the fly.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
