I usually build sunfire capefirst, is it better to build banner first for his normal build or does it really matter?

sunfire first is fine, if you're against AP go banner first though.

Do you think that maxing Q on Sion will be better now then maxing E due to the changes in patch 8.10?

Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to write these kinds of comprehensive guids with actual usefull information. I have been playing for about half a year now and never played moba's before so they help me out quite a bit.
Especially the part were you in detail explain what matchups are good, and why this is the case with examples of abilities is something really helpfull.

I was wondering though, against the Lissandra matchup you advise to buy an Spirit Visage.
Can you explain why this is an good item for Sion?
(from my kinda minimal understanding you dont get much use out of the extra healing properties that Spirit Visage offers right?)

Maybe a dumb question but yea, this is my first ever moba and only been playing 6-8 months.

Hey, thanks for the kind words. Spirit visage is still good against lissandra but I think right now going banner of command is better since the empowered minion is really hard for her to deal with. The reason spirit visage is so good vs liss though is because it gives you mr + hp as well as sustain (like 10-15 hp regen a second) since it increases healing from all sources. You can also go for an abyssal mask if you want to try to kill her.

I was wondering something with the recent Sion changes in mind.

I go banner and Zzrot and just seige their base till they realize they have to deal with me (with my mrr being pretty low as I am an newer player it can catch them off guard alot) so I need to be able to get trough waves fast once my items get purchased.

Is it an insanly dumb idea to change bicuit delivery in for minion demarerializer to offset the changes they made to Sion or is this counterprudictive or downright stupid?

I just played Sion vs Yasuo. I tried to freeze the lane but it did not work. Is this because Sion is a natural pusher or because I simply suck at freezing?

Sion is definitely a natural pusher especially if you max E and are using it to poke, if you're trying to freeze you kind of have to use no abilities and just last hit.

I guess my estimation was accurate then. Well, it looked bad for me because of Yasuo's innate mobility, but he predictably pushed too much without warding so the Ivern in my team turned him into target practice. I suck at freezing and manipulating minion waves in the top lane, and I guess if I want to practice, Sion isn't the best top laner for that.

Awesome guide! I think Sion is in a great postion this patch and u can easily gain elo with him in patch 8.4 . Love the detailed matchups and explanations on the guide. Might just pick him up and start playing him xD Also great job on the visuals. Keep it up!

In older times, I would build Titanic Hydra on League's big dead guy. Used to work well because of how much HP I'd be stacking from items and farming, I don't know if it's still a good idea though.

I think it's ok if you like a bit more damage, but resistance/cdr stacking is the way to go on sion imo, sunfire provides a good amount of damage.

AbaddonSoulchain (5) | February 27, 2018 4:16pm
Yah, I know. Besides, his Q has good damage on later levels and it'll help if he's so tanky, the whole enemy team can barely scratch him while channeling it.

Prettiest guide I've seen in a while, great job! :D

I've learned a few new things about Sion through this guide and I'm now starting to believe Gargoyle's is truly a godsend for this fella.

You definitely capitalize on the sections regarding matchups and I love you for it.
I've totally got a bunch of new reference material to use when going against or playing as Sion.

I think this guide is one of my new favorites and I'm going to bookmark for sure.
Thank you for keeping it up to date I never want this guide to die! :D

thank you dude, that means a lot!

I do need to update a few things on here but for the most part the runes and everything are up to date.

Sorry, I'm a bit confused. You mention Iceborn Gauntlet in the item notes but you don't build this item. So just wondering, what's up with that?

I Am Goliath (25) | January 20, 2018 12:38am
Yeah good catch, sorry about that I need to update it, I use to go iceborn but righteous glory has taken it's place for me, although I think iceborn is still OK in some games.

Oh I see. I was thinking of playing Sion following this guide and this caught my attention. Glad I could help. Seems like a great guide.

Very nice guide, superb design and nice formating making it very pleasant to read. Nice stream too from what i saw so definitely +1 :)

2 questions around items :
Why Gargoyle Stoneplate in 3rd item in "full build #1" but 6th item in "Vs. AD team" and "Vs. Ap team" ?
What you think about Jaurim's Fist / Tiamat => Titanic Hydra ?

Keep the amazing work,

thanks man

Basically against ad teams I think you want more straight armor first, and since gargoyle gives some magic resist I usually stall it although it's not terrible against AD teams so you could get it 5th item probably instead of 6th.

I don't think titanic is very good on sion because you want some resistances early since you're already getting hp from your W, but I don't think the item is terrible on him in general.

i feel like i was doing good then i was wrong making sion go for precision, here i noticed the domination is better, didnt expect it before, thank you my friend, even the items well its mixed but i go most sion full tank build and i let the adc carry the game when they are doing good bot other than that i build some damage
