Not Updated For Current Season
Hello everybody and welcome to my Sion build that I have been using and tweaking ever since I have purchased him. Using this build you will be able to to very good attack damage in early, mid, and late game.
Pros / Cons
+ Excellent melee damage
+ Good melee speed
+ Excellent life steal
+ Good max health
+ Can take on multiple opponents of the same level
+ Fun to play
+ Great lane solo
- Fairly weak at level 1
- Very reliant on items (Very low base attack speed)
- Tiny mana pool
- First 9 levels are crucial
I have chosen attack speed for marks and seals because it helps out with attack speed early game before you have your phantom dancer, as well as after you get them. I have also chose cooldown reduction on glyphs so that you can use Cryptic Gaze more often, it will also allow you to use your ultimate more often. You could substitute the glyph with mana regen if you are having more trouble with mana than you are with cooldowns.
I have chosen 21/0/9 for my masteries, There should be no question about why I put so much in offense, I put a bit in utility because it is handy to hand the extra cooldown reduction and gold/leveling as well as the improved ghost.
I chose the Bezerker's Greaves first because it gives me the extra speed I need, for a first item at the beginning of the game I usually get the boots or sometimes Doran's Blade. After that, I will still be upgrading Enrage which will be pumping up my damage so i get a phantom dancer which will allow me to attack faster as well. After that I start to up my life drain and damage by buying Bloodthirsters and such.
Get Cryptic Gaze first, it does good damage and it has a LONG stun, trust me, you can do a lot in two seconds. After that you have to get Enrage up as fast as possible because that will be your main source of power, people will fear you in early game because of it. There is NO reason to turn it off, ALWAYS keep it ON. After you max enrage, i would say you should max death's gaze because it does not add to the mana cost and it makes it do more damage. Try to keep away from using Death's Caress as much as possible because it will destroy your very small mana pool.
I personally prefer ghost and ignite, i have ignite in case someone is about to get away from my with low health and my cryptic gaze is on cooldown or i dont have enough mana. As for Ghost, i just prefer it over flash for catching up to people who are running away and to fleeing, get flash if you like it better.
Using this build people will fear you for your huge AD in early game, mid game your damage will still be amazing and combined with your attack speed you will be able to mow down most classes easily in a 1v1. In late game your health drain and damage will make people contemplate weather it is possible to kill you, you will be able to take on multiple people at once with your ultimate. You will heal faster than most classes can do damage with your life drain.
