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.
This is my first build post so please don't be a **** with your comments.
This build makes a DPS/ life-steal Sion with a few tankish characteristics.
Cryptic Gaze - This is the skill that is most helpful to your team if used properly because of the 2 sec stun as soon as you get the skill. Plus it has a totally bad-*** name.
Death's Caress - Comes in handy when farming and also tight get-aways. I've heard AP Sion's ranting about how this is the best skill but for a AD its not that great.
Enrage - Sion's bread and butter, a ton of damage early on leads to a ton of kills early on. I always max this skill out first.
Cannibalism - This is what makes him one of the best in the game if used correctly, Sion can carry an entire team push end game when used.
I go with simple AS reds, ability cooldown blues, magic resist yellows, and AD purples.
This is where people disagree with me. Going 9/21/0 instead of 21/9/0 helps Sion's natural tank features like his passive, instead of making him more straight up DPS. I've tried both but i feel that the defensive comes in handy more often that the offensive.
If you are going for the first kill then your stun is the best option you have, but if not then get enrage for the health and damage boast. Its a good idea to hide in the bushes for periods of time and then plan with your teammate/s when to stun. Keep farming until you have enough for phage and part, if not the whole thing, of your boots. People say that phage is a waste of money for Sion but i have found that the health boast and the slow come extremely in handy early game.
Since your enrage and phage give you such a big attack with little cost the most important item to invest in is something with AS. I like malady because it gives you a lot of AS and still some life steal relatively cheaply. By this time you should be working on your bloodthirster and starting to bring in some kills.
This is where the ******** brigader really brigades the ********s of the other team. His ult has a low cooldown so don't be afraid to use it often and once you get frozen mallet the show is over. When pushing the other teams base use Death's Caress whenever possible and stun people who are running away.
Now that you have won please show off your skills by flexing your man muscles to the other team in the lobby.
One More Thing
Just because you read this build doesn't mean your going to be the greatest loler who ever lived. (but it may help :) )
