Is Syndra's harass safe enough to ditch defensive yellows/blues?

#1WaterKnightPosted 6/26/2013 6:13:22 AM
I have a standard magic pen/armor/flat mr/flat AP page I was using, but I want to try flat mana regen for her early game.

I was only going to replace the armor runes, but now I'm thinking about doing scaling ap blues too. What do you guys think?

heck maybe even flat ap blues to make her early game super annoying

You can do anything you want, you don't have to be cookie cutter. Mix things up you'll never know what you might like.

i don't think you need armor for an AP mid. I mean yeah AD mids are more common now than before but I'd just go mana regen. And scaling health seals are better for general defense at mid anyway.

Depends who you're facing, but in most cases if you're confident enough in your ability to use her that you will suffer minimal harass then by all means, mix it up.

I've taken mregen yellows since lvl 20, they are sooo good

So the question here is "do I knowingly do something suboptimal that will bite me in the ass later, or do I play smart?"

Is that about it?

Not trying to do something "suboptimal". I feel like Syndra has Anivia level mana issues and it's pretty much the only thing holding me back from enjoying playing her.

You are buying Grail, I hope.

Syndra's harass might be safe enough to not have any defense but her ult range sure isn't. Mana regen is fine though, buy defense if you need it.

Gold runes are better than any scaling stats, honestly, besides maybe mana regen. Your extra gold gain will progressively afford you better itemization at a similar rate as scaling health boosts HP, except if you decide you don't need health in the middle of the game you can just use your gold to buy a different stat.

Safe enough? Not really. You still can try it if you feel the need to be more aggresive.
