This is my third attempt to make this guide so every time I try to click functions I can't go back to it. It makes me really mad . anyway.
[spell=Feel No Pain] Sion has a 40% chance to ignore up to 30/40/50 damage each time he is attacked. The damage reduction is calculated before armor benefits are taken into account.
This is God for this guide because we are Jungling. It helps you stay alive and able to maintain your ability to Jungle.
[spell=Cryptic Gaze] Sion's stare terrifies a single enemy, dealing damage and stunning them.
Pro 2 second stun, Con long cool down, high early game mana cost.
[spell=Death's Caress] Sion surrounds himself with a damage absorbing shield. If the shield is not destroyed in 10 seconds then it will explode, dealing damage to surrounding enemies. Cast again after 4 seconds to manually detonate.
Not really useful helps with jungling. may save you from a few damage here or their.
[spell=Enrage] While active Sion deals extra physical damage at the cost of health. Additonally, he permanently increases his maximum health whenever he kills a unit.
Very important skill allows you to get health and extra damage.
[spell=Cannibalism] Sion consumes some of his enemies life force on each attack, leeching health to himself and nearby allies. The smell of flesh also renews Sion's fervor, increasing his attack speed.
This will keep you alive and able to 1v1 most other people.
Jungling smite and ghost. you could also do smite flash for ganking. I find ghost more useful but each to their own.
Runes and masteries
Masteries I run 21-0-9 pretty standard I think get smite.
Runes I have attack damage Marks, critical damage seals, Mana regeneration Glyphs. you could also switch your seals with critical chance, cool down reduction, more mana regeneration. For quints I am running Flat health.
I don't know how to insert pictures so this will be a bit rough.
Start with Cloth armor and 5 hp pots.
jungle jungle jungle
go back, buy boots if you want to gank, or finish madrids razor/build long sword for madrids razor.
jungle jungle gank jungle
make boots into beserker grieves. boots of swiftness would also work I find sion needs the attack speed.
I find that sion has a large amount of damage, but he has issues surviving to be able to deliver said damaage, also dps Sion has a huge mana problem you start lv 1 with about 200 mana. thats like 2 stuns and your done. also he is easily nuked or stunned. so at this point I build banshee veil.
once this is done you will be able to survive a lot better and you will have more mana which means more stuns. laning phase will more then likely be done before you finish your banshee veil.
From here you can kind of branch. Many guides suggest getting the later from your razer. I prefer getting madrids blood razer because it gives you attack speed which is a key weakness to Sion if he does not have his ult. It also allows you to chew through enemy tanks. At this point you can kill a variety of different opponents or at least allow them to be killed by your teammates.
If you want to crit more, get executioners calling after this point. if your rolling in the money get an infinity edge. still dieing? guardian angel.
people running away from you and your just not criting enough? phantom dancer.
At lv 1 get shield
lv 5 enrage
then finish up enrage, get ult at 11.I would suggest finishing up stun after enrage, to lesson cool down. but if you want to work on shield so you live longer that is also viable.
here is how you do it.
lv1 small golem. pop shield attack attack smite.
lv2 run to wolves. shield once kill them. smite should be back up
lv3 run to ghost kill them. or if their is no counter jungle you can run to enemy small golem from your wolves kill them then enemy ghost. go to town kill your small golems and ghosts.
I would suggest not killing blue or red until you have finished your razor.
at lv 6 you can kill golems with your ult rather easily. Dragon.you need some life leach to kill besides your ult. if you went with wriggly lantern, that plus your ult will allow you to kill dragon with ease.
Look for ganks! you are a jungler, with a stun what more could you ask for get out there and stun people!
If you notice mid is almost dead don't be afraid to hold his lane, just stay by the tower and kill whatever creep come near, often times their mid will go back and heal themselves(not always). Just don't be that person that sits in jungle all game and does nothing useful.
+ high damage
- slow attack speed
+ you have a 2 second stun
- it takes a lot of mana
+ you you can 1v1 most melee champs
- you are easily CCed and can be bursted quickly
-you are slow. unless you get phantom dancer.
You can Lane, its not to bad you can have quite a presence in a lane, but since your mana is low 2 stuns and your done. If you lane with someone like teemo or sivir your not going to get much creep, since your slow its hard to get away from people who can destroy you early game. This is why I like to jungle Sion.
But in light of that if you have a good partner you can make a squishy person pay dearly for trying to mess with your or your partner. specially if it involves the enemy tower diving you.
In this guide yes, you built to survive but you are by no means a tank. Do not initiate a full team fight, you will die. Try to stay in the middle of the group or near the back. why near the back? you ask. If the team has a fed Katarina,warwick, malzahar, evena fiddle sticks. you don't want to be the one getting ulted. when they enter the fight you want to be that person who saves your team/ carry by stunning kat/ww/malz/fid. so your team can then kill them while they are like wtf happened. or escape from fiddles ult. If you can stun the other teams disabler, pop your ult, kill them and heal up your team your then able to push against your enemy in a 5v4 situation and hopefully win. Also sion is good at picking off the stragglers, specailly tanks that are to slow to get away (tree,allistar,morde,nasus) its never good to focus the tank but when all the carries are gone and you only have their slow tank left to kill better someone then no one, and with your madrids blood razor they will feel the pain.
This is my first guide, sorry it is alot of text and no pictures. Sion can be an incredible dps, he just needs to be able to survive long enough to deliver the damage. Please comment.
