Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Less Viable Summoner Spells:
The other spells are so bad that there is no need to explain why I don't take them.
With the items,masteries,runes you start you shouldn't have a hard time last hitting.That means that you should try not to push and only last hit because that way your team could come and help.Of course if you are winning the lane you can push the enemy creep wave to its tower so the the enemy loses experience but that is risky because he could freeze the lane and give you a lot of troubles with farming so be careful.
In team fights you should be the first or second person in,you should stun and kill the most squishy targets in their team that also deal the most damage 99% of the time.Never forget to pop up your ult even if you see you are about to die because you your ulti is very good and it might save your life or at least you could help your team a bit with the heals.
Starting Items and Early game
,5x if you are against an AD solo top.If you can exchange hits with the enemy solo top in your favor then you could try to go for an early kill.Remember not to push too much because the AP mid or jungler may be good gankers. or you are afraid of their jungler like or you should start with 3x .With you should have and easy time last hitting a good idea is to try to stay in a bush near the creep wave and exit only when you want to last hit so the AP solo top can't harass you as much.Unless the AP is really bad you shouldn't be able to win exchanges but if you do press the advantage and try to get a kill but remember don't push because the AP mid or jungler will come and you could die.
Mid Game and Ganking
There are a lot of choices:
You could take more damage items or you could get more tanky you decide because it depends on the game.Sion doesn't need much health points because he has enough even without hp items.That is why you could get , , .You could make a lot of combination with these items it depends on you,your team and the team against you.Some times it is only the matter of personal preference.
If you would like to get more tanky you could get , . Quicksilver Sash can be used not only for the MR but also for the active because Sion can be CCed really hard.
There is also one middle item called .It gives armor,crit and a good passive which you might need.
Thank you for reading my guide on Sion and I hope that I helped you to understand him better.I might have forgotten a thing or two so please try to be understanding as possible.
