SO if you treat it as a way to boost your energy levels rather than as an attack then it may make sense for a given build. With a lot of Flow Capacitors you can maintain that extra energy for quite some time.
This is the thing to remember about Syphon. If you treat it as a drain on the enemy, it really is lackluster except as a cherry on top for a drain build. Treating it as a self power buff, though, will pay you much better dividends.
