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 build is a pretty straight forward build.Built on crit and A/D A/S.Use this guid to your own discretion.
Honestly i think these runes are setup perfectly for sion but its really up to the player and their playing styles.The ghost spell everyone knows is good for those surprise ganks where you need to GTFO or chasing to get that last hit.The flash spell once again can save your life or also help to dive a tower or just to finish somone off.Once again both of these spells can be defence/offence so very usefull.
I do believe everyone has their own ways to do things so im gonna say this.Use these runes but in your own settup if prefered.Such as in your runes use the ones i used but just stack them more or less on the preferred runes.Masteries should not be changes as they are your backbone to any game.
This is basic.I use diferent sequence orders depending on who im playing against at the time.So this is at your own descretion.But i STRONGLY recommend getting your ultimate at lvl 6!!
Start with your brawling gloves 1 H-pot and 1 M-pot then to avarice blade to gain that extra gold in time then moving on to your ghostblade.Get your boots but only get mercury's or beserkers grieves NOTHING ELSE this choice is your discretion based on who you are fighting.After get either your Zeal then infinity edge.After this base your next items on who your fighting.Randuins is your own choice i prefer it but if not get something else with some more crit or atk speed
Pros / Cons
-Large critica damage
-Massive attack speed
-Great mid-late game
-Both spells used for offence or defence
-Not alot of survivability against disables
-More for 1v1 1v2 fights
Usually Sion is a very valuable char in team battles if you know what you are doing.With this build you are very good at initiating fights and also relieving battered friendly's from a heated battle by using a stun (so team can run) then taking over with massive AD/AS/CRIT/lifesteal.In an ideal team battle situation you wanna save your stun for when you need it to get a kill or save someone or yourself.You shouldnt need it for once you have this full build your AD/AS will deal out enuff damage to bruise the enemy team.
The advantage this build has over other builds is this.AP builds allow sion to do a fair amount of damage at an earlier time in the game and can absorb alot of damage with your death caress.The problem is if you run out of mana OR have to wait for cooldowns you are technically rendered useless for a few seconds.With the AD build on any char that uses a base melee atk its an endless barrage or damage because you auto attack does not run out.The main point is that with this build combined with Sions ult you can be pretty much unstoppable...dont forget about your passive!
Farming is basic and straight forward for any char.You need timing(unless pumped at lvl 15+) to make a guarantee last hit for the kill.Remeber every char has something to farm with.In Sions case its deaths caress thats used early game.But in all reality once this build is even half way built you will be farming with your auto attack.Leading to another advantage to farming when it comes to the battle of APvsAD.Farming with AP requires mana as this build still does not once lvl'd up.
So thank you everyone for reading my guide plz try it out maybe use some of my ideas in your own builds.Leave a comment plz and tell me what you think ...i am open to negative criticism aswell!
