Since Scyl of the Drakes has been around for a while and has an amazing support package, she can be very versatile and built in a variety of ways.

Not exactly a campaign boss, she will help you in dungeons, keeping your team healthy if they get hit and hopefully stopping them from getting hit with her built-in CC and worst case, pick them up when they sit down.

Below are some of the more typical builds:

You have your basic all speed, stacking Def, Acc and as much speed as you can get to cycle through her turns, healing your champs, picking up anyone who drops and getting some stuns out.

You have the Relentless Scyl of the Drakes, same stat priority as above, relying on relentless procs to lower CD’s further and get the all-important heals out.

Finally, you have the Stun Scyl of the Drakes, giving you a much better chance to cc waves all while cycling through her skills and keeping your team up.

You might be getting Scyl of the Drakes when you don’t have the best gear depending on your RNG (Relentless being the hardest to get), look at what you have and run her through the optimiser and see what you can get.

Build her solidly, and upgrade what you can when you can, she’s a champ that will help you progress and sneak into some teams you wouldn’t expect.

Do you have some spare books? She’s worth every single one you put into her.

Not every build will be the same but if need some ideas for masteries, check them here it’s not going to be one size fits all, so see what fits and where you need her.
