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.
Sion the Taint Burglar
This is the way ive been playing Sion for a while now its a generally AD style of build and I use him as a ganker/chaser/CCer in random games. Now ive played speed Sion and its good however for the games ive been playing I have better luck running waiting on the special to take someone out or chasing someone running etc.
For the general build its straight forward other than I went into utility a little more than the other Sion guides ive looked at and the reason being I dont want him to soak up damage.
Because the build is generally AD Sion does benefit from atk speed and I like the atk speed runes over the others for this case.
Yes its expensive and yes its supposed to be. If you dont have a bunch of gold playing like this something is going wrong any how. You went into Greed have exhaust/ignite and if you cant get ganks you should be destroying mobs in mass for enrage.
These are not the be all end all of items you can replace bloodthirster with the black cleaver and if you have lots of mana users Wits end should be used.
I suggest grabbing a lane with someone who can harass and or CC if you can you should be able to get early kills/first blood. Your passive allows for you to mitigate minion and player damage. Try to set up some ganks in your lane or possibly mid. If you cannot get any kills make sure your last hitting minions and feeding your enrage.
Hopefully you should have a decent item setup at this point and the squishier opponents will know to run to a turret or just gtfo. Dont forget the active on the Ghostblade. Try to stay with other players your not immortal you will still get ganked 2v1.
You are shelling out some serious damage healing yourself and your team stunning and just generally wreaking havoc. Use your cooldowns wisely dont use your gaze and deaths caress unless the situation calls for it this isnt an AP build. Use the Gaze to start a fight off or stop a fleeing opponent possibly save a team member. Use your shield to absorb damage. Your not gonna have a lot of mp5 Stay away from tanks that return damage via Mordekaiser sunfire cape etc. You have some CD reduction and its a generally short ult cd as it is make good use of it.
Play smart dont turret dive at lvl 3 dont blow your mana Cryptic gazing and deaths caressing minions play smart. I see Sion played as a tank and he can be however thats not what this build was made for you shouldnt be the first one in all the time. For 1v1 situations with Melee Jax aside you should be strong especially if your ult is on CD.
