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.
This is my first build so im hoping it goes alright please leave comments and let me know how i did. If it gets a good rap ill go further into detail about game play and what not.
Ok so i personally prefer Exhaust and Flash due to having extra 2 abilities to help you chase down runners and escape from battles that you may not be able to quite handle.
Other useful spells
Ghost is another spell that is quite useful in the way that dominion is a very quick game type and being able to move around the map at speed is essential and is also great for helping chase and get close to annoying ranged champs.
Garrison is also useful as if there is an enemy defending a base / turret just pop in on the turret and destroy whatever is stopping you. Also great for helping regen a base that has little health.
With skills i like to put 1 point into each of the 3 starting abilities due to having your Cryptic Gaze and Death's Caress as well as Enrage makes you a rather annoying opponent at low levels.
id then max out Enrage putting points into Cannibalism whenever followed by Death's Caress then Cryptic Gaze this is due to enrages passive ability as well as increasing your dmg output.
Cannibalism ..... need i say more possibly the most annoying move ive ever seen on a melee champ. ive won many a 2v1 battle due to this ability.
Your other 2 abilities are just used to protect small amounts of damage and stun your opponents while you destroy them.
Ok so there are many different ways you can go here but the one i find most helpful to Sion is this ....
start off by buying yourself Boots of Speed , Ruby Crystal and a Long Sword
i do this to give you an all round advantage in the opening fight having dmg , hp and movement speed to open the battle.
then build yourself a Phage and Boots of Swiftness yes boots of swiftness due to the extra movements speed which is crucial in Dominion. If you find yourself up against alot ofcc and your getting cc'ed so much that your unable to keep up with enemies i recommend changing to Mercury's Treads
After that start building towards your Trinity Force This is once against due to giving you all round stat gains and making you a more viable and useful player to your team.
Next ill get a Vampiric Scepter to give you that little bit of survivability then id push for Kitae's Bloodrazor this is because having that extra bit of ad/as is very helpful in dealing large amounts of dmg to your opponents and Cannibalism gives you enough lifesteal to keep yourself alive in fights.
After that build your Sanguine Blade for some more tasty dmg and lifesteal. At this point you should be very hard to kill if playing right and you should be putting out alot of dmg after this point its just about becoming godlike.
I recommend making your 5th item a The Black Cleaver to give you more ad/as and it reduces the enemies armor
Now with your last item if you ever get time to make it i recommend going for 1 of 3 options Phantom Dancer This is for extra as/crit and most importantly movement speed which if its a close match then movement speed is very important for capping and defending bases .
Frozen Mallet if your finding yourself being destroy by annoying players that have been fed such as jax who will beat you unless your better than him haha .
Sanguine Blade If you find yourself absolutely destroying and want to destroy some more :D
