Sylvanus's Skill Order Notes Focused mainly on healing using wisps and adding Protections to Team mates. Verdant Growth to stall out opponents and rooting them for Carry to kill off.

Wisps for Level 1 as protections to loose as little HP at the purple buff at the start of the game. pop it just before the buff becomes active and tank for the Carry.

Level 2 get Verdant Growth to throw one behind you and your Team mate as when fully grown they become a good source of MP% to out sustain your Opponents.

Notes If you start at Red and then head over to to Purple Buff go this start.

Less sustain early game but more EXP.

Use Hand Of Gods without attacking on the Red then run straight over to purple to to help clear. this is where tier two boots is most important to waste as little time running through jungle as possible.

Used this build, and their ADC ended up DC'ing. They had Support Kali, and I ended up soloing her 3 times using all the abilities.

I'd probably DC as well if I had a support Kali.
