    Well in this guide i'm going to explain 4 different builds:
    (1)AD: AD based sion + some life

  • Masteries + Runes

    (1):
    Runes: With that build we'll need the same runes as an AD Carry, so, attack damage and armor pen. runes
    Masteries: So we'll need 21/0/9

    (2):
    Runes: With that build we'll need the same runes as an AP Carry, so, ability power and magic pen. runes
    Masteries: We'll need 9/0/21, AP based and Mana regen.

    (3) and (4):
    Runes: This is a hybrid build so you need attack damage, ability power, armor pen. and magic pen. runes
    Masteries: I prefer going 9/0/21, like AP based Sion with the hybrid builds

  • Working in the team

    With all the builds except AP, you have to stun to cancel ultimates or to stop an enemy running away
    With AP you have to nuke and that's all.

    Remember with all the builds to cast spell, hit, cast another spell, hit (->hit, ->hit, ->hit)

  • Farming

    U can use your shield to farm easier and faster but I use the shield to protect myself against enemy skills like GP's Q and these things. Remember to farm with your activated, farm with Sion is the most important to do because you win 3 HP for minion killed ;)

    In a match i reached 4.7k HP, 1k of these were from minions killed ^^ (like 300)

  • Contact and Replays

    I have uploaded 2 replays of me with the 2 different hybrid builds, the AP based is a ranked one ;)

    As you can see until mid/late-game I don't do real damage, notice that I die in early game in the second one xD

    If u want to contact me, i'm in EUWest server and my Nickname is "HitStorm"

    Thanks for reading!
