Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Introduction - Sion. The walking bomb
Well, this is a build that I use when I play Sion and I win 85% of times I use this build.
It's based on survivality and high damage output, so you will have fun using this build and looking how your enemys ragequit =)
You'll have seen that I haven't updated my other builds. That's because I have a lot of exams right now. Sorry.
Once you get started, you buy Doran's ring, so you get some AP with your runes and with that item to get FB. If your Lane friend needs a stun to get Fb, get it for sure.
A health potion to get healed whenever you need it.
Then, you buy Amplifying tome and Boots of speed and later on, upgrade them to Mejai and Soceror.
If you aren't getting enough kills, don't buy Mejai obviously and go directly to Rabbadons and use this tome when you're going to get Sheen.
With Rabbadons, Mejai and Soceror, you are really dangerous.
Your shield, at level 4, kills a wave of creeps, so it will be a nice gold mine and for sure a good way to get an usefull shield.
Get Lich bane and with a stun, an exploding of the shield and a hit, it should be enough to kill a squishy hero. If you didn't, try to repeat.
After Lich Bane, you can buy Banshee's Veil and Raduins/Warmog.
1- Use always Enrage. You will get some HP by killing minions/heroes.
2- Use flash to get in a good position for a trick explode or running back when you have exploded your shield near a tower.
3- Use Clarity when you see your enemy approaches because you don't have mana. In this moment, you use Clarity-Shield-Stun-Explode-Hit --> Death.
4- If the enemy is staying as his tower, wait for your creeps to get shot by the tower and in this moment, use your shield, get near the enemy and explode.
5- Don't be a hero, you are powerfull for sure, but you aren't God.
Why no Enrage?
Well, you need a good damage output early game to get enough kills, so Enrage, with my build, is really bad, because you use your magic skills to get kills, not autoattacks.
Why no Ultimate?
You won't use it, believe me, only if your teams need it or you are killing a tower or need a way to survive killing an enemy, but it isn't really usefull at early/midgame as I see it.
