Riot can keep calling them mid-scope updates all they want. We are calling them mini reworks because that is what they are, for all intents and purposes. And Syndra is getting one.

Mid-scope updates are a way for Riot Games to bring older League of Legends champions up to speed with the more modern ones, without having to work over them for months.

They have already done quite a few of those to other champions , with only a few not being any success, such as the case of Taliyah. The rest have breathed new life into their champions.

This time, Syndra is in line for  a mini rework, and it's a big one, so here is the full list of changes:

  • Passive - Transcendent
    • Syndra collects up to 120 Splinters 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 change with upgrade
  •  Q - Dark Sphere
    •  Cooldown: 4s --> 7s
    • Mana Cost 40/50/60/70/80 --> 40/45/50/55/60
    • Sphere Duration: 6s --> 6.5s
    • 40 Splinters of Wrath: Dark Sphere can store 2 charges (1s CD between casts)
  • W - Force of Will
    • 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

Riot Games Picture of Syndra from League of Legends League of Legends - Syndra just looks like someone with an ability called "Scatter the weak"

  • E - Scatter the Weak
    • 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)
  • R - Unleashed Power
    • 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

The changes will likely be following the release of Syndra's Spirit Blossom skins, or even in patch 12.19. The changes will not be impacting Worlds, though, as it will be played with the meta in patch 12.18.
