This guide is not for the faint of heart. For this guide to work, you need to already be good with Sion, and the game. If you are hard stuck, this guide will most likely not help you climb.

Now that I got this out of the way, get ready for an interesting way to play the game.

Why W + E only.

This is the wrong question to ask when you're playing a champion like Sion. It's not so much why, but why not? If you can pull it off, you are now part of the 1%. You are part of those that will not let Riot dictate how to play the game. You are part of the revolution!

Pros / Cons


+ Really good laning phase.

+ Really good wave clear.

+ Legit damage.

+ Runs like the flash.

+ Insanely strong roams.

+ You never leave yourself vulnerable.


- Very aggressive playstyle.

- Very skill shot heavy.

- Very very high skill cap.

- Not suggested if you don't play Sion.

- You play without Q or R for most of the game.

- You have to protect your KDA, you don't wait to die at all.

Primary Path

Arcane Comet

Arcane Comet is great for poking. Good synerge with Sion's E.

Manaflow Band

Manaflow Band gives mana sustain. Synergizes with Winter's Approach.


Transcendence gives some much needed Ability Haste. At level 11 it gives more squirmish fighting power.


Waterwalking gives better roams through river and better fighting power during baron on dragon fights.

Secondary Path

Biscuit Delivery

Biscuit Delivery good early game sustain for early roams. Gives 50 permanent mana which can be used by Winter's Approach.

Cosmic Insight

Cosmic Insight gives some much needed Summoner Spell Haste and Item Haste.

Flash is really important just to reposition when in danger, or to get on top of your target to murder them. Usually Flash should be used as an aggressive spell. If you need to flash out of a fight, that usually means you were positioning badly.


Take Ignite to win fights and outplay your opponents. Ignite counters Heal. You can also take Ignite to counter healing champions like Vladimir.

Items Choices

Doran's Ring

Good starting item. Gives infinite mana sustain. Makes the laning phase way easier.

Control Ward

Get this if you want to take dragon or baron. Otherwise don't bother.

Health Potion

If you're leaving the base with an empty inventory slot early on and enough gold to buy at least one pot, buy some. This helps quite a lot so that you can stay full health for early roams.

Boots of Swiftness

Core item. Get this every game. I find that Sorcerer's Shoes are more of a noob trap for this Sion build. What you need most is to be on time to fights. Every second matters.


Core item. Very easy to build early since it is very cheap. This gives you everything you need to roam and get kills.


Core item. This item boosts your damage and deals with those pesky shields.

Void Staff

Core item. Get this item early so that you can deal as much damage as possible.

Demonic Embrace

Get this when you start getting a good amount of bonus HP. With this you're dealing 22% of your target's max HP with your W alone.

Winter's Approach

Defensive item that converts mana into bonus HP. The bonus HP is then converted into AP by Demonic Embrace. Once it becomes Fimbulwinter it adds a shield on Sion's E.

Cosmic Drive

The Aether Wisp is a great first rush with this build. Allows you to dodge skillshots. Cosmic Drive works really well for with this guide's playstyle.

Abyssal Mask

It's a nice item, but avoid it if possible. The range is a bit too short to really be used well for this playstyle.

With W and E only, You need to adopt a kite and poke playstyle. You never want to over commit in a fight. Do your best to dodge every skill shot and land your own. You must avoid dying at all costs.

Use your spells to push the lane fast and roam with your early boots. You can roam as early as level 2.

Use Everfrost to catch people out or peel for your team.

As the game progresses, you want to clear side lanes and rotate to be with your team.

When you get the ult, at level 11, use it mostly as a backup plan to retreat so you never die. Or to follow up on an engage when the enemy is already low. Try to not ult too much, use it sparingly.
