Silas has a basic attack that deals piercing damage to 1 enemy, prioritising airborne targets. His Talent deals an extra 20% damage to airborne targets, and for every 5 basic attacks, his next becomes Soul Sniping, dealing 140% damage and ignoring 50% of the enemies Defence. His ultimate skill, Shadowcloak, lasts for 15 (upgraded to 20) seconds, increasing his damage by 60% (upgraded to 80%) and every attack becomes Soul Sniping, dealing 140% damage and ignoring all of the targets Defence. His first passive ability, Bloodpact, triggers when a unit is killed within his attack range, increasing his damage by 30% (upgraded to 40%) for 10 seconds, and can trigger every 20 (upgraded to 15) seconds. His second passive ability, Eye of Curse, triggers after he attacks a target for 5 seconds, inflicting Eye of Curse for 8 (upgraded to 12) seconds, causing Soul Sniping to deal 50% (upgraded to 60%) extra damage and can trigger every 20 seconds. His Bond skill is Lost Love, which is unlocked when Vierna is unlocked in the Heroes Gallery and causes Soul Sniping to deal 100% extra damage while Shadowcloak is active.

 

Talent: Silas deals an extra 20% damage to airborne targets, and for every 5 basic attacks, his next becomes Soul Sniping, dealing 140% damage and ignoring 50% of the enemies Defence.

 

Awaken 1: Increases Attack Speed by 100 during Shadowcloak.

Awaken 3: Silas and 1 random Marksman champion deal 15% extra damage while there are more than 2 allied Marksman deployed.

Awaken 5: Eye of Curse will increase physical and piercing damage by 15% on the target.

 

Ultimate: Shadowcloak lasts for 15 (upgraded to 20) seconds, increasing his damage by 60% (upgraded to 80%) and every attack becomes Soul Sniping, dealing 140% damage and ignoring all of the targets Defence.

Summary: Silas is a marksman with a basic attack that deals piercing damage and prioritises airborne targets. His entire kit is focused towards increasing his damage, via Eye of Curse, Shadowcloak and Bloodpact. He is frequently able to use his Soul Sniping to ignore some (or all, during Shadowcloak) of the enemies Defence. He has a unique ability with his Bond skill, Love Lost, which increases the effectiveness of Shadowcloak simply by having previously obtained Vierna. He is a very strong marksman and can be used in many areas of the game, especially in Campaign, Trial, Tide, Gear Raid 3, and both single-target and anti-air Arena.
