BARRY ALLEN BRINGS THE HURT
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Sion with this build
|Heimerdinger||The Donger is only a threat if you let him be one, his turrets you can e out of the way or into him for big damage but if he gets up close and stuns with his E or lands a full wave of Ult Rockets there's not much you can do.|
To be completely honest as long as you've got AP and can land your e with the bonus damage you'll be alright, pair that with your W shield and your set bro
Summoner Spells (TL;DR - Ignite or TP, your preference)
When I play the glory that is AP Sion i always tend to take ignite/flash to finish off kills that maybe i couldnt secure due to mana problems or other circumstances but it isn't the only option, taking tp in the midlane is another great option to make plays by Tp'ing to your team and ulting to engage or assist a team fight that could turn it to your edge.
AP Sion in Ranked? No Plz ;-;
Please, for the love of god, for the sake of all ranked players do not take this into the ranked rift this build is purely for some goodhearted fun to end tilts and tilt other while simeltaneously winning
Farming? It sucks!
Ah Farming with sion, always a pain, and to be honest, with AP Sion, it's even worse! But you chose to play this not me I just made the build :D but yeah, don't be afraid to farm with your Q, as long as your still have your dorans ring if you can take a few minions with your q do it and get the mana back from dorans plus reap the gold reward of killing those few minions, if you can avoid it don't spam your w or e to farm, you need them up for fights
Build AP you say?
Ludens Echo - Great to activate off of the bonus damage from sending a unit back with your E
Abyssal Scepter - In a lane ruled by mages it is always nice to have a bit of tankiness while simeltaneously lowering their defenses and raising your damage
Boots of Swiftness - Come on, Barry Allen, need i say more...
Rylai's Crystal Scepter - Bonus slow CC on your e, works really well to help to land your Q stun and might even give you time to get the explosion on your W shield's second active
Hextech Protobelt-01 - It's always important to build a little health on sion and I honestly just love this item on ap sion, that's it
Liandry's Torment - Honestly i feel the same about Liandrys as i do about the protobelt, it gives sion the perfect mix of stats he needs to bring the pain but at the same time to stay tanky
