Introduction

AP Sion mid is considered quite scary and this guide should help you maximize on his skills. Done correctly, he can completely shut down your enemy and leave the enemy without an AP.


Guide Top

Runes

AP quints for more damage. Magic pen marks so the actual damage will break their defences. The seals are armor and the glyphs are magic res so you can start off a little tanky in lane.

Masteries

I like to run the 21/0/9 offence tree so I can use his ability power to make each stun a crushing blow to my enemy.


Guide Top

Items

You rush chalice of harmony. Why? When mid you usually are against an AP hero so the MR will help you against him. But more importantly, it gives you very very high mana regen which allows you to spam your stun against your enemy almost every time it's up.

Ionian boots of lucidity so you can stun more often. The more stun the better.

Morello's evil tome for the CDR for the same reason as ionian boots. The AP helps and so does the mana regen with the synergy with chalice which can double it if you're low on mana.

GA, Sunfire, and FoN are all for tankiness, because when you stun people over and over again they're going to be sick of you, and with these items you can bait them into focusing you and cause them to throw the game by breaking rule #1: NEVER focus the tank!

Triforce is for if it gets really late and you need to replace your chalice.

Skill Sequence

Unlike the standard AP Sion, this one levels stun to 5 first. The reason being that with my build you can spam it to the max in lane and completely crush most opponents. Being able to stun someone and inflict heavy damage every few seconds is a very powerful ability.

Shield goes up to 5 second to maximize your bursting.

E last because you're primarily AP.

R is gotten at each level but isn't exactly as useful as his other abilities. It can be nice for a quick tower kill or dragon killing.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Ignite for that extra SURPRISE burst, will grant you many kills! Clarity because your early game mana pool sucks and you want to deny your enemy early on. It makes good bait too if you spammed yourself out lategame.

Summary

I used this guide to get out of 800 ELO Hell and you can too. Follow this guide and you will understand why stun sion is so awesome.
