i am rather new player, and i have fallen in love with Sion, i noticed that i have never seen someone else play him though, and i was wondering why that is, i spent a lot of time searching for a guide but i couldn't find a good fresh one, why does nobody love him?

Post Scriptum, i am new here please let me now if this is in the wrong place

The main issue with Sion is that his kit is counter intuitive. Half is AP and the other half is AD. On top of that he is very easy to kite (stay away from) and often dies quickly in teamfights.

All that being said, he is a fun champ in a non competitive atmosphere. I enjoy jungling him with low level friends.

Pretty similar at ad tanky sustain (or just tanky sustain) is Nasus. He has a similar farm mechanism which makes him stay at top like forever. He has an ultimate which gives him free AD, AoE dmg and HP. He has a slow which nearly reaches the power of Sion's stun. He has an AoE spell which deals instant damage and damage over time, it also reduces the enemy armor. And his passive gives lifesteal. He can go jungle or top. And, he has the exact same kiting problems.

Xin Zhao. Xin has sustain, hits like a truck, even with building tanky items, contributes good CC to fights, and has a nice gap closer. Very strong jungler.

Master Yi jungle is also a fine pick. Master yi doesn't start out tanky, but has sustain in jungle due to Meditate, and can build tanky while dealing significant damage. Cannot be kited, but no CC.

If you use Meditate in the jungle as Yi, you should be murdered for that, just wasted time which could be easily solved with Vampiric Scepter.

So you are saying that when starting the jungle and not having Vampiric Scepter, while you cleared the camps fast enough you have to wait for camps that you shouldn't use Meditate?

If your waiting for camps your first clear, your jungling Yi wrong. Meditate is pretty useless in the jungle, even sustain wise. Just rush wriggle's and your set. His first clear isn't even that damaging.
