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.
Welcome to my Ability Power Sion Build.
Ghost: I choose this because it gives you a chanse to escape a stiff situation, or even get up with a fleeing enemy to make thet last hit.
So eather it's a lifesaver or a lifestealer :)
Exhaust: I Choose this spell because its also a great defensive AND offencive tool. I Also upgrade it in my Mastery Tree to reduce the targets armor and magic resist, witch is good for everyone, in your team that is.
Just a quick descriprion of my masteries.
I go with Cripple as i said above, Because of it's armor and magic resist reduce.
I also go with Haste to be able to move those extra meters, and do it faster.
Also, Because i dont pick many mana gain gear, Mana is a bit of a problem.
I can't remain in a lane forever with this issue, coz of Sion's spells are pretty mana draining. And because you are playing an AP build, there is no point of going melee without any mana to stun or shield.
Because of this i put 2 points in Utility Mastery to make the Golem buff remain longer on me.
Ofc you can modify the mastery build and add mana regain etc, this is just how i play. :)
There are many diffrent ways of building a AP Sion.
It all depends on the team you are up against tbh.
Here is a few examples.
I Always start with Dorian's Ring and a Health Potion Nomather what.
A few times i get all random and choose a Mana Potion Just to be able to spend a bit more mana creep farming with the shield.
I pick up a Mejai's Soulstealer coz you never know if you are gonna rock or fail hard. Mejai's is a good choise nomather what. If it turns out you suck, just sell it for another item later, If not, you will gain some really nice stacks.
Also, after Mejai's I grab Sorcerer's Shoes for some spell penetration. Next recall, pick up a Haunting Guise witch gives us Ability Power, (ofc) 400 HP,,, AND +20 Spell penetration, witch is awesome for almost any AP user.
At this point we need a little more attack speed for our utlilty to work better, and also for our Enrage. I grab a Malady OR at some points i grab a Nashor's Tooth for some CD reduction, AP and mana regain.
Ofc i go for a Zhonya's Ring for a load of AP, and also its active ability, To shield you and make you compleatly imune to everything for 2 sec. Awesome.
As a last item i often go with a Void Staff for spell penetration. But sometimes i even go for a Lich Bane.
Lets call this the "Extra Items" Spot.
If you simply just dont got the time or intresst of reading the whole guide, just check this out.
If you want to change anything in the Item Build at top, i recomend these items:
Malady for Nashor's Tooth
Void Staff for Lich Bane
Haunting Guise for Rod of Ages
Mejai's Soulstealer for Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Thats usually what i tend to do.
And that concludes it.
Thanks for checking out my Build. And i promise you, that with a little practice, you will rock them all.
