Saryn has the ability to spread spores that can corrode enemy armor, shed her outer layer leaving a decoy, imbuing her weapons with toxic damage and causing a huge area to plunge into sickness.
Potency is the name of her passive ability that causes status effects she causes to last 25% longer.
Saryn throws spores on her enemies that deals corrosive damage over time and spread when the infected enemy is hit or killed.
This is good for taking out multiple enemies since not only do they spread to enemies but they also have a good chance to cause status effects, in this case the Corrosive status effects will reduce enemy armor making them easy to kill.
Spores will last a long time especially when spreading and being recast once in a while capable of killing hundreds of enemies in mere minutes.

Saryn leaves behind a decoy and gains a speed boost for a short duration.
The decoy will draw enemy fire and will explode once it runs out of time or health.
Molt can be used effectively when trying to escape a tricky situation, luring enemies or just to gain a speed boost when heading to a certain area.

Saryn infects enemies within a large radius causing them to take Viral damage which is multiplied by 4x when infected with spores.
Infected enemies will be affected by the Viral status effect which causes their max health to be reduced by 50% and causes them to take damage over time.

Spores Range Build
This build allows Saryn’s spores to spread indefinitely as they keep killing enemies and spreading over and over again.
With this build most missions regardless of how big the map is will be filled with enemies infected due to the huge range of the skills since the range is increased greatly with this build.
The technique with this build is to spread Spores by tossing them at enemies and killing a few to spread them around the whole map then finish them all off with Miasma, simple!
