Mastery Tree Is Outdated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.
Why i created this guide?
I want people to know how good Sion is on attack speed and attack damage. This really works every time i play and i at least get 10 kills every a match. I dont like long explainations and stuff thats why i dont speak to much and also you wont get bored reading this
Sions role in 5v5
Play Sion only as a Solo top fighter or a jungler
Just Simply nothing else
Your role as a Solo top fighter: Farm as much as you can, last hit minions
If your playing sion as a jungler you have to gank the lanes that are in trouble and the lanes that are being pushed up
Sion The Undead Champion
Prior to the creation of the League of Legends, the city-states of Demacia and Noxus were locked in a brutal series of on-again-off-again wars that spanned the course of centuries. Both powers sought an advantage over the other, but Noxus was the city-state willing to forego conventional morality to achieve its goals. Only brute strength and the will to use it mattered to Noxus, and this is best exemplified in the murderous warrior, Sion. Used by the Noxians as a human battering ram, Sion would be sent thundering ahead of Noxian troops. He would mercilessly slaughter foes with his large double-bladed axe, ''Chopper''. His complete disregard for caution ultimately cost him his life, as he was captured and summarily executed by Demacian forces.
The Demacians thought that the beheading of Sion would be the end of his bloodthirsty ways. Death, however, was merely the beginning of Sion's rise to power. The famed Noxian assassin, Katarina, recovered Sion's remains and Noxian necromancers reanimated the behemoth to serve Noxus once again. Sion's reanimation actually bestowed new powers on him and increased the potency of his existing abilities, making him even more of a terror to behold on the battlefield. The Noxian High Command had a powerful new weapon in their hands - one they have brought to bear as a champion in the League of Legends. Even though Sion's increased powers would make him a powerful tool for the High Command's use outside the Fields of Justice, Noxus no longer risks losing one of their greatest champions in the League to chance or circumstance; Sion's days as a front-line fighter for Noxus' military conquests are at an end.

Enrage - Skill
I shall explain how Enrage works.
Well some of you may know, some of you may think you know and some of you dont know. Actually its very important to know this so stay allert
Now every time you hit while you have Enrage Toogled you lose some hp - Cost 6/8/10/12/14 BUT every time you last hit a minion a champion or a monster you gain 1/1.5/2/2.5/3 Maximum HP so try to do the last hit on minions ESPECIALLY when its too early in the game.
Later on you will get a Vamparic Screter and that will solve the problem of losing hp each attack

Recomended Items Purchases
First of All i get i get a Dorans Blade for some extra attack and hp
Afterwards i get some boots with 25% attack speed / or CC boots (i take cc boots at 90% of ranked games its recomended to you to take them if you play ranked.)
Before i get to the Phantom Dancer I get a pickaxe for +25 attack
Now i go for a Phantom Dancer for more crits, more movement speed and ofcourse attack speed
then i get a Vamparic Screter after i get some Attack speed and some Critical because i dont wanna lose hp per a hit PROBLEM SOLVED :p
Then some high damage, criticals and critical chances with Infinity Edge
You should have already got hp by farming with Enrage Skill, go for atmas you will have like +60 dmg (with 3 000 hp) , start with armor and then go for critical
Last thing i get is to survive and have a bit more attack, of course its a Warmongs
This build works perfectly, try it

Some other item Purchases
1) Last Whisper
When: Theres a heavy tank in the enemy team? cant do enough damage? get this
2) Sword Of The Occult
When: Sometimes when you have good teammates, all you really do are assists, its better to take this one because of the damage it gives you each stack
When: Some nabs run away from you.. well take this, it will slow them even more [60 Sec cooldown]
When/Why: Some people like this item because it gives extra attack based on your hp. I agree with them, its a personal choice. Take it only when you go up to 3k hp. [After Frozen Mallet]. 2% of 3k hp is +60 dmg (i think :p)
Try hiding in bushed with teammates using stun Cryptic Gaze and Exhaust that are helpful at beggining [First Blood:p], also look for opportunities to gank, Last hit minions
Try ganking Mid, Going Ghost mode then stun Cryptic Gaze Q skill and knock out the bastard
On Late game there are a lot of teamfights ganks and 1 vs 1 fights make sure you have your ulti ready every moment its needed Cannibalism R Skill
I Prefer 9 Greater Mark Of Desolation For more Damage.
9 Greater Seal of Attack Speed for more attack speed,
9 Greater Glyph of Attack Speed for even more attack speed
The quintensess i get are based on everything we need
Greater Quintessence of Desolation
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
And a little bit movement speed:
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
At low levels Stun costs a lot of mana, you can get some Greater Seal of Replenishment for mana regeneration
get 3 Greater Quintessence of Desolation for more damage
or 3 Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed for attack speed
Pros / Cons
1 vs 1 beast
Stun is VERY helpful
Ultimate gives A LOT of lifesteal to you and to teammates
1ST OF ALL HE CAN BE COUNTERED BY RANGED OR SPAMMERS (GANK PLANK)
Only has stun
No fun to play
Spells i prefer:
Ghost is a very helpful spell that can make you run faster and catch up with the enemy
Exhaust is also a good spell especially in early game that slows the enemy
Some other good spells are Ignite or Flash that
Dont think about other spells, they suck
Creeping / Jungling
Sion is a very good jungler as he can tank mobs with his lifesteal (Tanking the baron helps teammates restore hp with lifesteal too)
To jungle you have to start with a Cloth Armor and 5 health potions
OR for some lifesteal
Starting with Death's Caress to hit the mobs faster and at Lvl 2 Enrage. Afterwards at Level 3 put a point Cryptic Gaze. When a teammate needs help go and creep the enemy with Stun
Summoner Spells: Go with smite and Flash
