[13.12] Sion Jungle - Great Wall of China Champion

By Scratchyerik
JUNGLE PROS & CONS
Overview of Jungle Sion


PROS:
1. Great Skirmisher w/ Phase Rush
2. Few If Any Unplayable Matchups
3. Thrives in Fog of War
4. Difficult to Invade
5. Good Burst for Smite
6. Needs Less CS for the Same Bonus Health
7. Gold Efficient Tank Jungle
8. Extremely Healthy Clear
9. Fast Multi-Camp Clear
10. Baits Counterpick for your Top
11. Extremely Strong Lane Ganks/Counters

CONS:
1. Suffers with Single Target Camps Slightly
2. Telegraphed CC
3. Limited Gank Pathing
4. Vulnerable to High Mobility
5. May Tilt Your Team For Just Locking It In
6. Hard to Reliably Hit CC If Your Team Has None and Misses E.
JUNGLE PATHING
Jungle Pathing


Quick 3 Camps:
Red > Raptors > Krugs > Gank
(Smite Krugs, Raptors & Krugs Are Interchangeable)

Leashless 3 Camp:
Raptors > Red > Krugs > Gank
(Smite Krugs)

Full Clears Are Standard

You almost always want to start on Red Side as its rare to get invaded there early and they wouldn't dare late invade or try to smite fight a Sion Level 1.

If you know where enemy Jungle started and their clear isn't healthy you can wait for them on their 2nd buff in a bush ready to full charge. You do a surprising amount of damage early and Red Buff will always be strong.

This isn't an end all be all of pathing and is very simplistic, each game is different. ID the easiest lane to gank and get ahead and clear in a way that allows you to play to this strength. If your game is stable don't be scared to keep farming.
OVERVIEW + EXPLANATION
Hello, this is my second ever guide. I started playing Sion in the Jungle around three years ago but it really became my pocket pick in S11 playing in Amateur Platinum Leagues for fun. However this season I started giving Sion a chance in Solo Queue and I just can't stop winning and I've never looked back. The champions playstyle, kit, and overall design are something I love dearly. I used to also situationally play Sion as an Assassin but after the Durability Update I started using it less and with the removal of Prowlers Claw its officially dead to me, maybe I'll come back to it one day.

Here's a Overview of WHY I Picked these Core Items and Runes




ITEMS:


Jak'Sho
1. Not Many Better Options
2. Most Bang For Your Buck
3. Comparable Healing to Virtue When Proc'd

Sunfire Aegis
1. Bamis Early Spike
2. Synergises Well With W Passive
3. Great Clear Amp

Abyssal Mask
1. Extremely Gold Efficient
2. 400 Gold Cheaper then FoN For The Same MR
3. Gives Only 3 Less MR Then Stacked FoN When Near 3 Enemies
4. Easy to Max Passive
5. Extremely Helpful to Your AP Damage Dealers


RUNES:


SORCERY PRIMARY




PHASE RUSH
1. Patches Up Sions Poor Mobility
2. Allows You To Stick on Priority Targets and Throw Out CC Sooner
3. Prevents Jungle Invades From Being Devestating
4. Great Slow Resistance Means You Don't Need Swifties
5. Always Has Potential Passive Threat Early

NIMBUS CLOAK
1. You're a Jungler That Uses Smite
2. All The Other Options Suck

CELERITY
1. More MS from Footwear, Phase Rush, Blue Smite, Water Walking.

WATER WALKING
1. You're a Jungler
2. Bonus River Stats Are OP for Skirmishes & Objective Contests


INSPIRATION SECONDARY




MAGICAL FOOTWEAR
1. Your Role Is On Foodstamps
2. Helps You Stay Gold Efficient
3. Extra MS to Approach for E+Q

APPROACH VELOCITY
1. Hit E? Go Fast!
2. Hit Q? Go Fast!
3. Hit R? Go Fast!
4. Allies CC? Go Fast!
5. Allows A More Comfortable Approach For A Longer Charged Q
