Thank you! :)

Really great build, though I throw in a Titanic Hydra and it really helps a lot.

Absolutely love this guide. There was a time I spammed 10 games in a row of Sion mid in normals and I won 8 in a row with awesome k/d ratios. It was also incredibly fun. I therefore have to thank you for showing me the build that lead me to that experience.

With Wolves start you have 601+ Gold, enough to start with Rejuvenation Bead, Cloth Armor and Refillable Potion, a very strong combo which leads fast into Raptor Cloak. Another option against mages can be Null-Magic Mantle and Refillable Potion. A 3rd start could be Doran's Ring + Refillable Potion, if you want to be more aggressive.

You can, but really, unless you're a jungler, consider taking bond of stone instead.

And so i'm still getting flam by teamates everytime i pick Sion mid, before the game start ...

I can't really train the char in that condition and having an history to prove that i could make it. Have you got an advice on that ?

( sry if my english is a bit poor )

ZZ is still viable, only difference is that you might need to put it a little further back from the tower instead of right beside of behind it. Otherwise it's still the same item.

You'll have teams that don't #believe sometimes, it happens. The trick is to impress them right from champion select. You don't need to explain yourself. Usually when someone asks "Sion mid?" I'll just respond with "The one and only!". That usually shuts them up. Try to build some complicity with your jungler. If your jungler is top side, try to push your lane and then go top side and gank together. (If you have trouble pushing your lane, it's whatever, just roam anyway until you get comfortable with the playstyle.)

When the game starts, try to have as big of an impact on the game as you can with well timed roams. You can easily gank bot lane at level 3 for example. By 10 minutes, you should have around 70% to 100% kill participation.

If your team tilts after a single death, you should just mute them and don't bother telling them about it.

Try not to play the boring mid laner game where you sit mid and hope you don't get ganked. Be the mid laner that plays the map so much that it's the other team that tilts from having to play against you.

Thank you for the guide :) But I had a few questions regarding your mana and cdr: I always take IcebornGauntlet right now because of the CDR, mana, and spellblade. What are your thoughts on it?

Also, how viable is building AP on Sion late game when the teamfights start?

I like Iceborn Gauntlet. If you like it, you can buy it. The stats it provides are really good.

I like to build AP items like Banner of Command, Abyssal Mask and Liandry's Torment when I can. Obviously it depends on your game. If you think your team needs the extra damage, then go ahead. Or perhaps you are completely stomping the early game, then they are good items to get to help win during mid game. If you do take them, remember that you might be a little easier to kill therefore play accordingly.

It's not too hard to play Sion as a mage.

I just got three questions :

1) I have problem with last hitting in early with this build, is "savagery" a good idea to pick ?
2) Why blue pen instead of blue AP on runes, that blue pen are very low, they are worth it ?

And the most important one :

3) What skin is the best to play with your build ? :D

Really ty for this build, i was looking for something like that for a while before seeing this one. :)
  1. If you really do have a problem with your last hitting, you should start by practicing in a custom game. It's fine to take Savagery, but Wanderer is really good. If you decide to use Savagery instead, feel free to use 3 Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed instead.
  2. Magic pen Glyphs are always better than the AP ones. Also, the Magic pen Glyphs help boost items like Sunfire Cape and Thornmail. It also helps with both Thunderlord's Decree and Grasp of the Undying masteries depending on which one you take. You can do deeper math, but you'll notice that the AP ones aren't as good in the early game as well as in the late game.
  3. Right now, I really like the Hextech skin, but that will soon change when the Mecha Zero Sion skin is released which should be soon.
