Introduction

Hello, and welcome to my SION guide.




Before reading, This build is currently under heavy construction and I will be updating it very often over the next few weeks in order to make sure it is ready for season 4, making it the absolute best I can. For now, what you see is what I have completed thus far.

PLEASE DO NOT DOWN VOTE THIS GUIDE IS NOT FINISHED




Basically what this guide is going to show you is how to build an absolutely indestructible Sion that will send all of your enemy's running back to base the second they see you.

I have literally walked into the opposing teams base with this build, and fought all 5 of the other champions by myself, killing 3 of them before they could down me, and I would have gotten the solo penta if I had stayed alive for 1 more second as my BOTRK had just came up

Why use this build?

In my honest opinion, after playing Sion and using every other build on here.. I thought Sion was a very boring champion too play. So I started working on my own build, and this was the result.. The most fun champion that I have ever played simply because I can troll the entire enemy team by NEVER being killed.

Following this guide will make you fall in love, just as I did with the insanely over powered, underplayed, sexy lumberjack that is Sion

So go ahead, and plant your seeds into the girlfriends of every enemy you slay on the battle field.. They wont stop you

Runes

I pick these runes for a number of reasons.

Greater Seal of Armorx9 simply because we are not going to be building any tank gear, and this armor will be extremely helpful throughout the game adding to our tankyness, as we will be acting as a tank late game anyway.

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resistx9 For the same exact reason as armor, add to our tanking ability

Greater Mark of Armor Penetrationx9 These will help mow down our enemy tanks, they can also be swapped out for Greater Mark of Attack Damagex9

I choose to do a 6/24/0 build with one point in Double-Edged Sword 4 points in Fury and 1 point in Expose Weakness these 6 extra points can be put anywhere you desire


space
DEFENSE TREE

Tier 1 - The extra 5% Armor and Magic Resistance from Enchanted Armor is extremely helpful seeing as we wont be building any tank items,and the bonus Health regen from Recovery will help us stay in the jungle longer, as well as give us a little more recovery while fighting

Tier 2 - 3 points in Veteran Scars for that extra 36 health

Tier 3 - 1 Point into Oppression While we do not necessarily benefit from this by ourselves it is extremely helpful during team fights reducing damage taken, Juggernaut obviously 3% extra health is nice, Hardiness and Resistance for the same reason we are building T1

Tier 4 - Perservance an extra 3% life regen ontop of our already insane regen will keep us alive forever, Swiftness to help escape if we have too, Reinforced Armor less damage keeps us alive longer, Evasive ditto

Tier 5 - 1 point in Second Wind This is what is going to help make Sion shine, the extra 10% Self-healing, Regen, and Life steal on top of the bonus 20% from Spirit Visage and the bonus 100% life steal from Cannibalism makes Sion INDESTRUCTABLE

Tier 6 - Legendary Guardian To help when we are CC'd


Guide Top

Skill Explanation

Feel No Pain
Sion has a 40% chance to ignore up to 30/40/50 damage each time he is attacked
this allows us to passively ignore damage, while feeding off the flesh of the innocent and the weak


Cryptic Gaze
Sion's state terrifies a single enemy, dealing damage and stunning them
This ability will be picked up at level 4 and maxed last, this greatly helps us secure ganks, and keep the enemy from escaping as well as allowing us to continue to steal life, use this whenever it is up

Death's Caress
Sion surrounds himself with a shield, that can be reactivated to deal damage
Use this spell before entering combat, in order to assure it is ready to be re activated before it is used up. ALWAYS use this as soon as it is up as it gives us a chance to steal life while not taking any damage

Enrage
Sion gains Attack Damage at the cost of health
leave this ability on at all times, after you get your first life steal item you will be regenerating and stealing more life than you lose, this also allows us to permanently gain health after each kill. Max this first

Cannibalism
The skill that makes Sion so deadly
This ability has to be one of the most over powered in the game, an extra 100% life steal on top of 50% Damage Dealt. Stacking this with a Spirit Visage The Bloodthirsterx2 Blade of the Ruined King Ravenous Hydra gives us a total of 151% life steal and 20% bonus healing ontop of that, this also heals our teammates that are nearby



abilities=ewqwrw champion=Sion


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Next on my list for now:


E - keep this on at all times
W - use this before entering combat
Q - Use when initiating, and in order to secure kills on fleeing champs
W - use this before your shield runs out in order to do AoE damage
R - use during team fights and in dangerous situations when alone

BOTRK - use this when you are low life and your cooldowns have all been used
Hydra - spam this every 10 seconds

W - Keep this up at all times
