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.
Just want to start by saying that i want to make this guide to show everyone that a Sion AD guide is the way to go. AP may get you far but this guide will surley work to your advantage also. In this guide i choose Ad over AP because it benefits the summoner in a number of ways.
This rune will really help you late game once you have enough lifesteal to leave your skill on. This will greatly increase your Attack damage with the skill and will result in much larger killing sprees.
Now this rune right here will really help you early game, when you are trying to last hit those minions with . Depends who you lane with this might be difficult, so attack speed will greatly increase your chances in beating that person with minions slain.
Greater Mark of Desolation
Now I believe that this rune is pretty self explanitory, this rune will really help your chances, when dealing with Champions who really like to build Ad counter. Early game it will help your damage output and the way you harass in lane. Once you reach late game you will be able to 1v1 almost anyone you see.
Depending on what you like you can get boots of speed for that extra movement speed or a Dorans blade for that extra damage early on. I usaully prefer the because it allows me to get back to lane a lot faster and will give me those few in order to stay in lane a bit longer than your opponent.
Theses two items should be what you would get next so that you coulds dominate in that lane. Once Sions Ultimate is popped the will greatly increase your chances in a fight, due to the extra Crit Rate and Attack speed.
Now here is where the desicion making comes into place. I would usually take first becasue it gives you the life steal you need to keep on without having to toggle it on and off. By doing this Sions HP will greatly increase. would also be my next item after Bloodthirster so that way we recieve more damge and a greater hit when hitting criticals. Now this also depends on how well i am doing, if my score isnt to good and i realize that they like to focus me, i would build for more survivability and eventually convert the into a which will help me kite enemies also.
Now you make a final descision on what to buy to coplete your build, should only be bought if your dealing with a champions who build really high HP or champs who deal damage, becasue it also gives you Armour. Now should only be bought if you really need the extra lifesteal or if you wann reaplace your once you build enough HP using .
ALWAYS STUN THE ENEMY CHAMPION HTAT DOES THE MOST DAMAGE ON THE ENMIES TEAM OR THE TANKIEST CC THAT CAN REALLY SCREW UP YOUR FIGHTThis is a must with Sion becasue once you target out one of there biggest damage dealers you will be able to take the rest of the team out with ease and then the rest of the teeam is easy from there. Be sure to never focus a tank becasue he can really hurt the way that you fight in these kinds of fights.
