After a recent VFX update, Riot developer Tim “Truexy” revealed the upcoming mid-scope overhaul for one of the oldest existing champions in League of Legends, Syndra.
After a visual overhaul in October last year, Riot has now deployed a full-blown rework AKA a ‘midscope update” for the mid-laner. The update aims to work on her new passive, significantly improving her late-game scaling. Through a Twitter post, Associate Game Designer on the Rift, Tim ‘Truexy’ outlined the team’s main goals “to keep her core gameplay but enhance her passive to open up bigger high moments and real feelings of power upgrades.”
Syndra's midscope is going to PBE this cycle, starting today! It's a long list, and there's a few extra surprises you'll quickly see in-game. Come try it out and let us know what you think pic.twitter.com/OU8jc77HOl

Also, the Dark Sovereign will restore 15% of her total AP upon collecting 120 splinters. To ensure that her upgraded passive doesn’t make the champion too powerful across the game, Riot’s League team has tuned the rest of her stats. League fans can experience Syndra’s mid-scope update on the next PBE patch cycle.
