That Syndra's AP scaling is horrendous?

I mean, more so than normal for a AP based champ. And don't bother throwing Ryze at me, he's not AP based, he's mana based.

Anywho, for those that may not have noticed, recently I played her and at lvl 8, with no ap items built on her and no AD items built on her, I had 28 AP, 77 AD!!!!

Now also, of that 28 AP, 14 of it was from runes!

Some have tried to tell me that's so she can last hit minion's better but.... her scaling doesn't get any better after that.

I'd have to say that she is the most item dependent AP champ I think I've ever seen, because without some ap items you will never do dmg as her, Which really hurts her in the laning phase. So she has great slows and stuff for team fights... but then you have this 5th member of your team that does hardly any dmg in early team fights and is only good for her slow/stun IF the player can land them.

And by hardly any dmg, I mean due to the lack of any real dmg output early game, she's easily harassed and gets very little farm, unless the other players an idiot. And that's even with trying to control the flow of the lane.

So, what do yall think? Thoughts, considerations, flame, and trolls post below.

Play her as a support:
Keep your lane pushed to your tower so your jungler gets free ganks.
Janna ult on a short cooldown.

and "Okay"-Rammus approved damage.

You do not get AP from anywhere but items. (Most of the time)

I'm a bit confused why you bother stating how much AP you had without AP items. There are only 5 or so mages in the game that gain AP without buying AP

and only 1 of those mages gets AP for making levels, Viktor.

No mage naturally gains AP through leveling alone.
