TRANS-SION ALL-IN HOW TO PLAY SION S9

HOW TO PLAY SION S9
INTRODUCTION TO TRANS-SION Back to Top

Hello its me SlON, TR Server's #1 MP "currently 2.1M" OTP SION PLAYER (%98 PLAY RATE)



https://www.leagueofgraphs.com/summoner/tr/SlON

End of s7 and introduce of new runes, i find interesting build TRANS-SION
While tons of tank stats still having 300 AD.. its quite suprising...

HERE IS MY CHANNEL DAILY UPDATED GAME PLAYES
RUNES FOR TRANS-SION Back to Top
MY LATEST USING TRANS-SION BUILD
Glacial Augment: Basic attacks Slow icon slow enemy champions for 2 seconds, which increases over the duration. PERFECT FOR PASSIVE AND CHASE
Magical Footwear: At 12 minutes (-45 seconds per Damage rating Takedown), you gain Slightly Magical Boots item Slightly Magical Boots for Gold free. NOT A BEST BUT HAVE TO RUNE
Future's Market: You can enter debt to buy items, up to Gold 145 (+ Gold 5 per Minute), THATS REALLY HELPS FOR ITEM RUSH
Approach Velocity Gain 15% bonus Movement speed icon movement speed when moving toward an movement impaired allied champion, or toward an enemy champion whose movement you have impaired. AFTER E, THERE WILL BE NO ESCAPE FOR THEM

SECONDARY

Transcendence This is our core rune what trans-sion's trans stance for
Gathering Storm our beloved one..


ORIGINAL TRANS-SION BUILD

Grasp of the Undying: deals 4% of your maximum health bonus magic damage, restores 2% of your maximum health, and permanently grants 5 bonus health. PERFECT for melee vs
Demolish : thats my boi.. Synergy with items and Soul Furnace passive it is still working as a charm and half duration on 6 to 3 is now easy to tank enemy player while waiting for 6 charge..
Second Wind and Conditioning Solid choices. depends on match up
Overgrowth Disappointing.. 240+ minion encounter with this rune still get avarage 150hp-200hp.. thats died for me.. but having Frozen Heart + Iceborn Gauntlet lacks health so need every single Hp

Secondary

Transcendence This is our core rune what trans-sion's trans stance for
Gathering Storm our beloved one..


Bonus:
+1-10% CDR (lvls 1-18)
+8 MR
+15-90 HP (lvls 1-18)

We are collecting CDR.. And look what riot bring as.. extra %10 cdr = 12 AD or 20 AP
IBG and FH burst Armor so we can aid some MR.. little 90 hp from last bonus will cover our loss nerfed Overgrowth
SUPPORT TRANS-SION Back to Top
One of dirtysionmains asked about how could be effective if we use sion as a Support

here is the numbers when exactly using same items as top lane..

i wanted to show that 30-40 min difference in support role as a stats..

for realistic numbers at 30 min. i farmed 55 minion and stand near 200 minions for Overgrowth then, 40 min. i farmed total 100 and stand near 300 minions for Overgrowth
updates: After playing some of games i found that losing matches Sion lacks on supporting with normal trans-sion build.. so i changed it little bit to

Iceborn Gauntlet To Zeke's Convergence
Adaptive Helm to Abyssal Mask
Frozen Heart to Knight's Vow
Spirit Visage to Remnant of the Aspect for supporting

Zeke's Convergence and Knight's Vow both pumps up ADC dmg and survival
Abyssal Mask also aoe AP dmg + i would like to add Frozen Heart for aoe slow AS but hard to keep ADC in fights.. also could use Locket of the Iron Solari For TF..

i started interest with Aftershock because Grasp of the Undying isnt worthy to take in support lane..

im also started to take Font of Life wich has good synergy with Knight's Vow for your ADC also Second Wind and Revitalize with Remnant of the Aspect you acting like Alistarin lane..
TOP MID LANE SUP ROLE Back to Top
After i found that Supporting with original Sion build hard to reach 6 item (less earning gold than top lane) also game time is avarage 30 min, Trans-sion build's cant reach his peak.. i added my itemization to more Supportive items like Zeke's Convergence or Knight's Vow

however, lacks of gold can be supressed if playing as a top lane..

if there is a 2 AA champion or non Tank Support in your team you can become Toplane with Support build..

you can add or change with any CDR items depend on match up
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR THIS BUILD Back to Top
ABOUT TRANS-SION AND ITS ADAPTIVE DAMAGE..

1) If you going to play AP Avoid taking Jaurim's Fist for Transcendence Adaptive damage buff. as long as carrying Doran's Ring all CDR buffs to AP..

2) Late game or if needed you can sell Doran's Ring without any AD item you become AP Sion to AD Sionin a sec. because of adaptive damage buff of Transcendence

3) You can change Sterak's Gage With any Situational item like Randuin's Omen against Yasuoetc. But Sterak's Gage has highest AD and shield. wich is good for Sion kit.

4) Sterak's Gage between Frozen Heart and Iceborn Gauntlet fits perfect against AD TOP laner and AD Jungler try to finish as a 2nd item.

5) Very rarely late games like 40min+ with decent Infernal Drake or Baron Nashor AD/AP buffs it is easy to see 400-450 AD while full tanky stats.. wich is Sion late game performance will be fixed in damage against even high resistance opponents
EARLY ITEMIZATION Back to Top
NEW PATH TRANS-SION
First complete item should be Frozen Heart/ Abyssal MaskDepends on match up.. most of games ends between 20-30 min. if you leading you can turn Dark Seal into Mejai's Soulstealer or you can go for Sterak's Gage Transcendence will convert all AP into AD so you can continiue items with Trans-sion depends on what build you want to you go or your team needed


ORIGINAL TRANS-SION

First complete item should be Frozen Heart/ Iceborn Gauntlet or Adaptive Helm/ Spirit Visage First back items dont important. You can buy Jaurim's Fist or Oblivion Orb/ Haunting Guise and go for Frozen Heart or Spectre's Cowl to Iceborn Gauntlet

with Transcendence rune you will get %20-30 cdr very quickly in Early game. This is where you shine.
