Introduction

Welcome to my Sion guide. This is very much a work in progress so expect much more info and details soon. This is my first guide, and I am relatively new to league of legends (playing since start of season 4), so constructive feedback is very welcome and encouraged. That being said, I have a strong understanding of Sion's strengths and weaknesses, and despite my in game mechanics still needing some polish, I feel I can explain how to dominate lane and win games with him very well. I hope you find this guide helpful and decide to spam play an Unkillable Zombie Menace in your upcoming solo queue games.

Overview

This guide is dedicated to making Sion a very disruptive and tanky initiator. It sacrifices some of your lane bully potential, focusing instead on soaking up damage and maxing your CC/ult with cooldown reduction. To play this build effectively you need to be leading the charge into teamfights and soaking up much of the enemy burst, ideally while smacking around their backline ADC or APC. This build also allows you to make game-changing TP ganks, and Sion's kit itself is pretty good for split push pressure.

Pros / Cons

Pros
- Good harass in lane
- Great base damages, and mixed damage (2 skills magic, 2 skills physical)
- Surprising burst damage while building tanky
- Slow and 2 knock-ups in his kit
- Very tanky and stacking health or resistances buffs your W significantly
- Good at baiting tower dives with his W and Q
- Great at roaming mid or TP ganking bot with his ult
- Great at tower diving and surviving
- Passive can turn a lost teamfight into a win
- Only costs 1350 IP even after the re-work
- Fun Kit to play


Cons of Sion/This Build
- Very low sustained damage
- CC is very unreliable
- Easy champ to learn but very hard to master
- If you can't combo effectively, you will be little more than a damage sponge
- Somewhat easy to kite
- Easy to mess up your ult (or get it dodged)
- Q and R can be interrupted by hard CC (details below)
- Being a tanky initiator relies on your team to follow up well/do the damage.
- You only get your passive when you die
