Sion Top Guide

By NaCLBait
Hey, so my name is NaClBait, I currently have around 400,000 mastery points on Sion and I wanted to share some of the builds I've enjoyed running on the Undead Juggernaut.
Why should you become a Sion main? Back to Top
Sion is fun as hell. His abilities are fun to use and while you don't need to be a mechanical genius they aren't completely braindead. His ult is one of the most annoying and enjoyable abilities in the game and there's so much you can do with it. Beyond his kit, there's a lot of ways to build Sion which keeps him interesting. Sion is one of the few champions that can build tank, bruiser or lethality and actually be viable. Of course you can also build crit, attack speed or ap on Sion but those tend to be a bit more troll, especially ap. Sion's also great because of how well he can scale. His w seriously rewards good farm and makes him difficult to kill even if you run full damage.
Bruiser Sion Back to Top
Bruiser Sion is mainly focused on two things: splitting and carrying. Bruiser Sion is the type of build you run when you think you can win lane and get an early lead. Trinity force and titanic are both expensive items and the build isn't the best from behind or against something like a Darius if you aren't absolutely fed out of your mind. With that in mind, Bruiser is a good compromise between tank and lethality. While you lack the resistances of tank Sion it's extremely easy to stack your w with trinity + titanic and your ability to take towers is significantly increased. You can't one-shot the enemy team with a well-placed q or r but you have a lot more sustained damage and you still have a lot of burst potential with trinity + titanic.
Tank Sion Back to Top
So tank Sion has always been pretty good, however, when Riot buffed Sunfire it became significantly better. Even if you don't build Titanic you have much more wave clear than before which makes scaling easier. The combination of sunfire and titanic also gives you a lot more damage than you used to have running tank on Sion so it's much easier to extend a lead from the landing phase. Unfortunately, Darius will still obliterate you unless they are trash so remember to play it safe early against aggressive champs.
Lethality Sion Back to Top
I usually go lethality Sion if I feel like one-shotting some squishies or if I am convinced my laner will kill me regardless of resistances. This usually applies to champs like Darius, Sett or Vayne in some cases. Instead of just dying somewhat slower I take the gamble that I can cheese the enemy laner and get myself a lead. Alternatively, you can just run it down mid or bot with your ulti for near one-shots early to mid-game. It's also important to note that your ultimate works on turrets so keep that in mind when playing lethality Sion.
