Pros / Cons

+Has a stun
+Good farming
+Pretty tanky
+Pretty good harass
+ultimate turns him into a beast (short CD + lifesteal+attack speed=at least a triple kill)

-stun CD is long early game
-run out of mana easily
-low attack speed
-vulnerable to CC(lifesteal is useless unless you land your autoattack)

I use these runes because Sions base attack speed is really low plus the AD help in FB.

Guide Top


I use these masteries because they give ALOT (and i REALLY mean alot) of offensive power.

These are really the basic items for an AD champion.
You're almost unbeatable with two stacked Bloodthirsters and the two Phanthom Dancers help too.

Skill Explanation

Passive: Feel No Pain-Sion has a 40% chance to ignore up to 30/40/50 damage each time he is attacked. The damage reduction is calculated before armor benefits are taken into account.
It looked like a good idea on paper... but just act like you have no passive. It's not reliable and the dmg reduction is bad late game

Cryptic Gaze-Sion's stare terrifies a single enemy, dealing damage and stunning them.
Little did you know Sion wasn't beat with the ugly stick... the whole tree fell on him. He can stop people with one look. This is what keeps people from running Tryn...with Undying rage... I only use this for the stun and max it last.

Death's Caress-Sion surrounds himself with a damage absorbing shield. If the shield is not destroyed in 10 seconds then it will explode, dealing damage to surrounding enemies.
No in depth discussion now. I just use this to soften the blow of atks and abilities when going to kill champs. I max it after enrage for more defence.

Enrage-While active Sion deals extra physical damage at the cost of health. Additionally, he gains maximum health permanently whenever he kills a unit. I max this first for high dmg output and to start bulking up health early.

Bread and Butter. This skill puts you over 3k health PASSIVELY without stacking health yet alone with a warmongs This is what makes atma's so awesome for Sion. It also boots your atks to extreme proportions early game for those hard first couple of kills.

Cannibalism (Ultimate)-Sion consumes some of his enemies life force on each attack, leeching health to himself and nearby allies. The smell of flesh also renews Sion's fervor, increasing his attack speed.

"I can do over 1400 combined damage to the whole enemy team in a team fight. My shield and Gaze do 950 a piece."

I hear things like this so many times from AP Sions... and heres my response:

I can do over 4000 damage to A champ before your shield can even be popped for damage. I don't rely on only my shield and gaze for damage AKA I'm not useless when my shield pops I can still do damage continually until I die. My ult heals for hundreeds of health not only to me, but also everyone else around me so I offer TEAM SUSTAIN who else can do that in a fight? Healing everyone by attacking is pretty sweet. and no, you can't do that too cause your damage output is so horrendous late game you ult only heals yourself by 100 MAYBE 200 a hit if you crit. And I don't know about you, but I LOVE being focused in a teamfight and theres 0 chance of my damage to be negated when everyone focuses me. You can add your numbers up if you want, but that's the problem with AP Sions. You have a defined damage cap every couple of seconds. Sure, burst is great and you kill squishies instantly but what about that Shen? or Rammus? can you kill them in a matters of seconds? Cause I sure can.

Sure the counters are great for Sions shield and gaze but that doesn't mean to push ap out the butt. A little bit of ap could do wonders for Sion but he's a walking blackhole of life, taking it from the enemy and giving it to himself. He's a life steal champ, get over it, it's what he was made for and is best at.
