Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png3.pngThese are best summoners for support. Ignite for supp as summoner spell is good only when you have strong all in in early lvls. Later it's damage is insignificant in comparison to damage reduction that exhauste provide. And believe me - Sion have strong early game but not strong early all in. You are zombie and you are too slow.
4.png14.pngYou can still take this but i don't reccomend taking ignite.  
4.png7.pngTake this one when your adc want to take 21.png or 1.png. The longer your adc live the more dmg he will do in teamfight.

Masteries Back to Top

Right now there is liitle choice in masteries for tanky supp. While it is still possible to go for 12:18:0 masteries for maxing damage but they aren't nearly as good as 0:12:18 right now. Both Sion damage and offensive masteries got so many nerfs from the time I made this guide that it's just not worth it.

Very good passive. In teamfights your role is to take all of dmg that was meant to your carries so you can die easily. But remember - you are zombie. You can attack even after your death and your dmg actually will be much stronger. You will have bigger attack speed and your every aa will take 10% of enemy max hp. So worry not - even after your death you can win every fight ;) The only problem is that in reborn version you can only use one skill - Death Surge (skill that only raise your movement skill) and your items actives. Summoner Spells are also blocked. So if u want to make the biggest difference you need good items and leave their actives for after death glory ;)

sionq.pngDecimating Smash (Q)

One of Sion cc. You can choose if you want to slow enemy or knock up. Use this after your E - normal enemy is too quick to knock him up with this skill so you need enemy slowed to cast it. After some consideration and experience I found out that this skill is amazing at 1st lvl. Nice damage and amazing cc. I'm also maxing this after sione.pngbecause shield at this etap of game isn't that important while having cc more often is.
Your shield.  Take this as quickly as possible - on 2nd or 3rd lvl because of passive and Relic Shield - every minion you will kill gives you hp thanks to this passive. Remember - you must take all of big minions in your lane - big minion give you 10 hp while small 3 hp. In late game it'll easily give you at least 300 hp (in most of games I have more than 400).
Earlier I thought that damage from this skill will be rarely used because you won't be able to cast this before they will destroy your shield but now I don't think so. If you are good Sion you always will be able to cast this skill to damage your enemy and it will be very nice damage.

Your best laning weapon. It has big dmg, very long range and good slow or it have good damage, big slow, medium range and reduces enemy armor by 20%. It have also nice mana cost and cooldown. Believe me - this skill is op. You can think that I exaggerate but just try it's damage in laning phase. You will really love it ;) But pls don't do things like this:
bcea478b78f9b98e404a21d5177c57a7.gif
 
You saw that enemy used his escape? (or he doesn't have escape in his skills). Use it and charge for him. He can't stop you. On 6th lvl he will probably have half of his hp so it's almost sure kill. It's also good ganking and running mechanism. It's amazing together with  2138_32.png. With them allies following you will have 15% bonus mv speed. Plus elixir make your running path wider - and believe me it will give you quite much in teamfights. But look out for walls. If you will hit wall or another object like tower instead of champion you will be stunned. Believe me you won't like it. With 16th lvl and 40% cdr you will have it every 36 seconds - you can imagine what u can do with that ;)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Best start. Relic shield will be neccesary for your W passive so take it.
    Build Targon's as quick as you can - you need this for your W passive. After buying sightstone change your warding trinket for sweeping lanes. And remember - Vision Ward is your best friend in game.

Core Items

    Currently one of my favourite items for Sion supp. Gives you nice tankiness for very low price, boost your and your ally survivability (i love this healing passive), and also give you mvspeed bonus when you will be going in your ally way. Amazing item,
    Probably the best item for Sion Gives everything - hp, armor, mana, cdr and even awesome active. I usually take it first - there is nothing better than sudden mv speed burst in your zombie form. Together with aoe slow after getting close to enemy it let you to change the tides of fight after you die in some stupid way ;)
    One of the most important tanky support items. Take it in every game - and when? In the moment you feel that you need it. You will be very tanky so it will gives your teammates awesome shield.
    Take the ones you need. I won't tell you which you should take because in every game you would take different ones. I don't reccomend Boots of Mobility - they are best for pure support but not for Sion who needs full speed even after his death.

Situational Items

    Favourite item of utility supps. Strenghten your shields and have awesome active but its stats are pitifully small. I rarely take it.
    One of my favourite items. Awesome tankiness and nice active. It gives nice boost to your Death Surge - together with this item active it simulates active of Righteous Glory ;)
    Awesome item when enemy adc have Runaan's Hurricane - Not only reflect some damage but also lowers attacking enemy adc attack speed and gives him grevous wounds. Just amazing.
    Take this combo if u want to splitpush. Quite nice together with Sion's ult - if he would put good wards he can run from every annoying situation ;)
    My favourite full build. Together with runes that gives you cdr you will have around 4k HP, 260 armor, 150 mres and 40% cdr. Late game you can exchange Eye of Equinox and Mercury's Treads for Ruby Sightstone and Ionian Boots of Lucidity - It gives you more utility in exchange for some mres and shield that gives you 10% of your hp... For me it's still worth it in late game ;)
    True support build. Take it ONLY if you are playing together with someone that can carry you. You have tons of hp and utility but your resists are a joke. I don't really reccomend it for solo q ;) You can also leave 1 place for red ward but i won't tell you which item you should leave because all of them are important for me ;)
    Build used for splitpushing. To use it you need to have ult ready and have great map awareness so you won't stupidly give free frags to enemy. Quite nice build but it will make it hard for you to join teamfights because you won't have tp. Still very nice build.
    Another amazing item. I reccomend to take it as 5th or 6th item. Amazing utility.

VS

Alistar

Medium

You are poking and he have strong heal. Believe me - fighting again him will be pain in the ass for you. You can take 3800.png first against him - he won't be able to focus your adc too much with your cc so in most situation you will die before your adc and this item is best to make greatest use of your deaths ;)

VS

Annie

Easy

Poke her. Poke her again. After 6 kill her. She is just too squishy. If she will try to force all in on your adc use exhaust on her to lower her dmg and go for her. She will easily die. Try to rush 3109.png aginst her. It will give you hp, armor, cdr and make your adc less squishy. Her abilities don't have too big aoe so for me it's much better than 3190.png in this composition. Just don't stay too close too your adc and it will be good ;) If she is focusing you you can rush 3800.pngbut it's not too strong against early Annie - she just need to start focusing your adc and you are fucked ;)

VS

Ashe

Easy

She doesn't have any mobility so you can easily poke her and after 6 hit her with your ult. On 1st lvl when you are coming into your lane beware of bushes. Try to stand between them and your adc so he would be hit only by her crit and not by her W. In your lane she is scarriest lvl 1st. After 6th lvl look out for her ults. If it is going to hit your adc you can use your ult to stop her. Easy lane.

Against Ashe supp is pretty much the same. The only difference is that she can be in lane with Caitlyn and those two together will make your life miserable. Very, very miserable.
Don't take 3800.png in your laning phase - with her constant slows it will be of much lower use to you. Try to rush 3109.png - it will give you much more in this teamcomp.

VS

Blitzcrank

Medium
He will try to force you in early all in. He won't give you much of dmg but there is other problem. Your lane is pushing lane. You will every time push them under their tower so he can be very annoying and grab you under his tower dmg. Another problem is yoursionq.png - with his cc it's almost impossible to load it eanough to knock him up. Every core item is viable in this match up - still I think that the most viable is3800.png because he will use all his cc at the beginning and he will be slowed after his overdrive.pngso it will give you much more chances to punish him for killing you ;)

VS

Braum

Hard

I've played against good Braum in some games and I can tell you that I underestimated his hardness. Good Braum is tanky and have quick reaction. When you want to go all in he will stop you with his braumw.png and braume.png. He will stop half of your sione.png with his braume.png. To tell you the truth the only way to win against him is good help from your jungle. Try rushing 3109.png- it will give you power to somehow survive his all ins and to protect your adc.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

She will poke you hard early. She will make your life miserable. Most of your poking depends on throwing minion into your enemy but what you can do if your enemy is between your minions and you? To have any chances with her you need to have veeeerryyy goooood adc and help from your jungler. Still if she isn't that good then you can poke her quite hard. Rush 3109.png - in this lane survivability is the most important.

VS

Corki

Medium

Both of you have great poking ability but his escape mechanism make your ult quite weak. Currently rarely taken as bot adc. As for first item both 3109.png and 3800.png are viable but you need to first see how he plays. If he likes to rush with carpetbomb.png to attack then 3800.png is greater because he won't be able to run. 

VS

Draven

Easy

Easy to poke thanks to his axes. Don't let him force all in in first 3 lvls and he will be destroyed. As for first item both 3109.png and 3800.png are viable. Take what you like better ;)

VS

Ezreal

Easy

Very squishy champ. His play style depends on his poke but you will see that your poke is stronger. You probably won't get kill because of his double flash but you will easily force him off lane. As for first item both 3109.png and 3800.png are viable depending how good is he and how bad are you ;) if you die a lot then take 3800.png and if not take 3109.png.

VS

Janna

Medium

Good Janna will easily prevent your poke with her shield. But she will have her mana run down very quickly and then your game began. Poke her to death and charge her (or her adc). She will die very quickly.

VS

Kalista

Hard

Good Kalista will avoid your every E so focus on her supp. If she is bad just poke her to death.

VS

Karma

Easy

If your adc is good and can avoid most of her q it's very easy lane. She is very squishy and mana hungry so if she want to protect herself with her shield she will be very quickly out of mana. But remember that until 3rd lvl she have much bigger poke than you and if you let her she will chase you out of lane. I reccomend 4 pots in this lane.

VS

Kayle

Easy

Theoretically she have bigger dmg than you and have heal. Unfortunately for her to do this dmg she must stick to you and attack with her aa. And believe me your slows are too strong for her to do that. Also she is very squishy and her heal is very weak - all of this make her useless against you.

VS

Kog'Maw

Medium

Easy to poke and charge but he deal percent of your hp on hit and you are champ that build hp.

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

It will be hard to poke her until she will attack you but after she will burn out her w she will be very vulnerable. Just don't let her oneshot your adc. If she will be able to do that you lost this game. And it also mean that it's time to report your adc.

VS

Leona

Medium

Early game is yours thanks to your e and you will probably force her (or her adc) out of your lane before 6 lvl. You are poking quite hard but believe me that after 6 all in is her. She have just to big dmg and cc. But if you have good adc that will use his escape skill when she is using her e just use your own e on her and she will have 20% less armor. Believe me it will make her cry. I gave it medium because this lane depends mostly on your adc not you.

VS

Lissandra

Easy

Her poke is almost as strong as yours just with much shorter range. She is very squishy and you can easily destroy her but problems start after 6. She have much stronger cc than you so i reccomend for your adc to take cleanse and for you to take heal. With these summoners you will win most of the fights (until she will get some really good ap items).

VS

Lucian

Medium

I hate this bastard. His have nice escape mechanism with low mana cost and he have very big dmg. You also don't have any hard cc working immediately that could stop his ult other than your ult and he can easily escape from it with his dash. This lane depends on skill - if you will be able to land most your e you will win. If not you will probably lose (until he have some squishy supp that is much easier to poke).

VS

Lulu

Medium

Her poke is just as strong as yours and she have nice shield to stop your poke. Skill matchup.

VS

Lux

Easy

Squishy champ with low movement speed. Very mana hungry. You can easily outpoke her and force her out of lane.

VS

Malphite

Medium

He doesn't have any real dmg before 6 and after 6 he can win only with all in. Your poke will decide who will win this lane (and believe me - it will be you). The only problem is in late game - if you won't win lane his cc is much better in teamfight than yours.

VS

Maokai

Medium

Annoying poke, good cc and awesome survivability. Also very strong all in. Poke his adc or you will most likely lose it. He is very mana hungry so you can poke much more than he can and it will probably decide who will win in your lane.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

You have good poke and nice slows while she haven't any escape mechanism other than flash. She is using her ult? Good, you can charge her and kill her.

VS

Morgana

Medium

Good Morgana can change your lane into hell. You used e? Good, she just stopped it with her shield. You can win this only thanks to her very long shield cd. You can use your ult twice while she will have only 1 shield. Skill dependant lane.

VS

Nami

Medium

I hate her heals. Earlier I thought that this is easy lane because she will be easily out of mana but I was wrong. I played against good Nami with good runes and masteries and I can say that I was wrong. She hadn't an mana issues in whole game. You have still better all in after 4th lvl but before that you will cry.

VS

Nasus

Medium

I know what you want to say. WTF??? NASUS SUPP? I would also want to say this but I can't. I saw it and he was very viable supp thanks to his w and e. Especially with adc cait. His e can lower your armor by whole 20 on first lvl and 40 on 5th! And his w make your adc unable to run from gank! His only minuses are his lack of hard cc and his mana hunger. He is also bad to focus because of his tankiness and when you will focus his adc and force him out of lane he will be just stacking his q. I just hate this champ.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

This cc master can make your life annoying. Difficulty of this lane depends on his support item. If he will take relic he will be medium and when he will take anything other he will be easy.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Very hard to poke thanks to her passive (bonus mv speed in bushes) and have nice heal. Her only problems are her squishiness and mana hunger. Look out for her spears and traps - when you will be hit by one of them she will have much bigger damage in her cat form. Easy to force her out of lane.

VS

Nunu

Hard

He gives mv speed bonus for both him nad his adc that will make them hard to poke with your e. He have good poke with his e and survivability with his q. In teamfight he will force you to use your ult on him to stop his ult. You can't do much against him so focus his adc and if you will be good enough you will win.

VS

Quinn

Easy

Easy to poke easy to land your ult while she is trying to all in you. Just easy to kill.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Rengar "supp" is full ad and he will try to force all in in early lvls. To win your adc must stay far away from bushes and you will easily force him out of lane. This lane depends entirely on your adc. If he won't let Rengar to jump on him from bushes you will easily win. If not you will lose.

VS

Sion

Hard

VS

Sivir

Easy

She is very easy to poke but she can stop half of your e with her shield. With good morg as supp she can be hard for because they will stop all of your e. With other supp she is just too squishy for you.

VS

Sona

Easy
Standard supp
Too squishy with too weak heal and dmg that make her come close to you. Easy to poke easy to kill.

Full AP
Good heals and damage but even squishier. Your e will make hard for her to land her enchanted aa and in all in you will easily kill her.

VS

Soraka

Easy

If you will focus her she will be very easy. She can't heal herself now so you can easily poke her out of lane or kill her.

VS

Syndra

Easy

Really Syndra? Why someone would choose her for supp? Just poke her and kill her.

VS

Taric

Medium

Your e will be useless against him because of his heal but your cc will make him unable to get closer to your adc. This lane depends on ganks.

VS

Thresh

Medium

Skill dependant. His first 2 lvls are stronger but from 3rd lvl you can make him pay very hard when he will try to poke you or your adc. But remember that even when you are stronger he can win if he will land few of his q.

VS

Tristana

Medium

Easy to poke but hard to kill. She can disengage with her ult or run with jump. Thankfully she can't shoot you away with her ult when you are in your ult so you can annoy her very hard.

VS

Twitch

Easy

You can poke him very easily. He don't have any real escape mechanism other than flash so if you will have pink ward in inventory you can easily all in him.

VS

Urgot

Medium

I don't like this bastard. He have some nice tankiness and annoying ult. When you will se him using his ult charge him (or place where is your adc now) to give him the biggest damage and cc you can. With good cooperation with your adc you will win.

VS

Varus

Easy

Easy to poke and your ult make his ult useless.

VS

Vayne

Hard

Very short cd on her tumble make it very hard to land your e. Also she is one of the few champs that are going in early life steal what make your poke much weaker. You are also one of champs that are building mainly hp and her percentage true damage make you ideal target for her to kill.

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy

Poke him. He is too squishy to do good in lane agaist you.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Very unorthodox support. Early game is his thanks to his big damage and range but after 6th he is yours. His difficulty depends on adcs - if you have adc with bad early while he has adc with good early he's medium to hard champ. In other situations he is easy.

VS

Zilean

Easy

Poke, poke and once again poke. Make use of his squishiness and you will win.

VS

Zyra

Easy

Just poke her to death. She wants to poke you with her plants? Knock them back to her with your E. It will dmg her not you ;) (I mean that you will give her dmg from your E not that they will attack her). After 6 you can easily kill her with your ult (but not alone - your adc need to help you ;) )

About me Back to Top

I started playing LoL in end of season 2. Currently I'm platin 2 player from EUNE. I'm maining top and supp champions like Malphite, Nasus, Leona or Zyra. Sion is my newest main champ in both of lanes. In the beggining i played him only on top lane. However after I found out about strenght of his early lvls e I decided to try him on supp and found out that he is super strong there. To tell you the truth I'm not very good player. I never was. From the beggining I was better in theory than in practice. I was finding good champs and perfect runes for them. That's why I need 10 runes pages while my friend have 2 and is much better than me. I played on supp with many unorthodox champs before they was popular. I played Zyra and Morgana months before they started to be popular. My friends was angry at this and they threatened me that if I won't stop playing with champs like this they'll stop playing with me (it was when I played Morg). Imaginate my anger when 1 month later they told me to play Morgana because she is the strongest supp in game... And they said it because they saw her in stream. That's why I decided that when I'll found another champ that i'll found out viable I'll make build and show it to other players to try. And here it is. Sion supp is coming!



Pros and cons Back to Top

20.pngPros:
-strong early poke,
-very tanky,
-the longer you play the tankier you are - you will have probably around 40% bonus hp in comparison what would have Sion top in the beggining of late game but later this difference will shrink,
-many good cc,
-after 6 strong initiate and (with captain's boots and elixir of iron) disengage,
-you are truly undead monster - even after your death you can help your team with your aa, auras and actives from items (yes, you can use them while you are in your passive form),
-he is great in all stages of game,
-easy to play,
-you can very quickly come to your carry side thx to your ult.

3.pngCons:
-weak against early all in,
-he is very big pusher so he is vulnerable to enemy ganks,
-he is ugly,
-he is dead so he stink.

Early game Back to Top

Your early game is quite easy. You are using your sione.png on minions to poke enemy champions, your sionq.png on slowed enemies to knock them up and your sionw.png to protect yourself from some of enemy poke. I must admit that this champion early game is broken - on his 1st lvl sionq.png deals amazing damage and his poke with sione.png is so strong that some of my enemies wanted to report me for cheating... Good advice for you - try to using this skill on enemy adc that is going to lasthit some minion. This action make him stop for some time and it will make it easier to land your skill. Thanks to this I usually force enemy adc out of lane around 4th/5th lvl - and without any help from mine adc. But remember - you need many wards because you are very pushing lane. Most of time you will stay under enemy tower and you will need many wards to protect yourselfs from ganks. To see how to place wards as support watch this guide made by Krepo:



 When you will see that enemy have low hp and you are 6 already you can try to force all in with your ult. but remember that if you will miss your ult you will lose 1/3rd of your damage and half of your hard cc. When you will kill enemy adc or you will see that enemy jungler is top call your jungler and do dragon or try to get first tower - early objectives are quite worthy doing them ;)

Mid game Back to Top

This part of game is actually most tricky part while playing Sion supp. Why? It's easy. You already pushed enemy tower while teamfights didn't even started. If your adc will want to farm more you will be far in enemy teritory. To have any chances of surviving this without kills for enemy you will need many wards in enemy jungle and be ready to back away in any moment. I was caught too many times already by 4 man ganks to underestimate this part of game. Once we even fed so much because of this that we lost game that was practically won... Be ready that sometimes you will need to use your ult to run away. 

Late game Back to Top

You are main initiator of your team. You should already have 2138_32.png - this will make your initiates very good. When you will see enemy out of position, easy to kill use your ult to catch to him (only when you have teammates that can follow you), and cc him. Thanks to your 30-40% cdr when you will catch someone he won't escape without flash. In teamfights your role is different. Protect your carries. It's the best way for you to help your team. Also surprisingly even as tank you have big damage - your w in late game have quite nice damage - to tell you the truth you will have almost the same damage as top Sion. That's why you will get some of kills in most of the teamfights. If you will do good job in teamfight (it means that at least your adc is alive while whole enemy team is dead) it's time for your victory dance:

a3e91a16424c83682cbd3766811eca3b.gif
Remember about warding - good wards can win lost game while bad wards can make you lose even practically won game. 

My games with Sion supp Back to Top

In my game history I had 8 games with Sion supp so after some play with paint I decided to show them to you ;) I'll be adding more after my games. All of them was against players from gold/patin/diamond and I can tell you that this champ is very good in this lvl ;) I don't know how it will be against players from master/challenger so when someone will play against them please tell me how it went ;) (If you won't see full image just open it in new card). Do you see last 2 lost games with sion supp? Like I said in section below - never take Sion supp against 80_64.png especially when in enemy team is also 67_64.png or 53_64.png. I learned it hard way, I hope that you won't make this mistake.


This is some info for these 2 games:
5:11:9 - just look at this Shaco... And we even started to winning teamfights.
2:5:12 - our adc decided that he don't want to play with us because he was ganked too many times...
Don't know why but it only show my ranked games without any normal.

sions.png

I tried to play with masteries and runes full offensive (21:9:0 and marks, quints hybrid pen). I must say that I liked it very much - they are alredy my favourite set. Those are games with it:

About this lost game... I played with Ezreal vs Vayne and Nami - and believe me this is one of the worst comps you will play against. Why? Because you will found out that you are useless in lane - every damage you will deal they will easily heal and if you won't win all in after 6th lvl you are fucked. I don't want to play this lane ever again.

Never take Sion supp against these champions... Back to Top

There are some champs that will make you miserable. You are champion that push very much and your only way to defend your adc are wards. But there are some jungler and midlaners that will make your efforts miserable.

These guys can gank you from so far away that you can't ward yourself of them. You and your adc will be dying every time they will have ult. That's why when they will hit 6th lvl you are useless. Don't use e on minion to poke because it will only make their ganks easier. You can only cry and wait for your jungler gank and try to kill enemies in one all in.

She is the only adc (if player is good) that will destroy you completly in almost every game. You will win early game thanks to your poke but she can farm under her turret just nice and she will be building 3153_32.png as quickly as possible and it will nullify most of your poke. Her true damage that takes % of your hp is also very big counter to your way of playing (you are tank with big ammount of hp). Also her Tumble short cd make it very hard to land any of your skillshots. I don't have remedy against her.

Diving Back to Top

Yes, I said diving. But you know what? I'll say you one thing: NEVER EVER DIVE UNDER THE ENEMY TURRET ALONE!

Why is that? It's easy. Your only way of diving is with your ult. And remember - enemies can easily evade your ulti if they aren't cced and when you will miss them you are easy target. Especially if you don't stop your ulti in time and hit some wall or turret with it. In time like this your ulti not only won't help you but even it will stun you. And stunned Sion under enemy turret is dead Sion - believe me.

Synergies with ADC Back to Top

Challenger tier synergy:

Both of them have nice poke and good CC. And they are quite decent together before 6 lvl. But real deal starts after that. Your e slow plus ashe slow make much easier for her to land her ult. When she will do this you charge into your enemy adding knock up from your ult. Next use your q to extend enemy time under cc. Your enemy should be dead after this. But remember - you must always stay between your adc and enemies - if you will die doing this nad Ashe still have around half of her hp you can start counterattack. Ashe's slows from her aa make your zombie mode almighty. Your aa damage in this mode is very formidable and thanks to Ashe aa noone will run from you.

My favourite lane with Sion supp. Very strong from the very start to the end of game. Your e make it very easy for him to land his q and his e make it much easier to land your q. And after lvl 6? It's slaughter. In the moment you land your e he can easily ult enemy. Next comes your ult and q and meanwhile he land his whole combo (3 aa + e + 3 aa + q). Enemy is 100% dead.

You are very good together. She have nice early game and thanks to Sentinel even when you won't have wards you will be able to push and have vision. Your ults are also awesome together - when she will use ult on you and you will hit enemy there is no chance for him to run. Also she is the only champ that will let you dive without worry of dying. There is also nice bug with both of you that will let you gank other lanes and be right back around her. It will let you also easily disengage ganks from enemy jungler with your ult aimed at him and still be safe if your adc is safe.
And here is some advice from Iittala about this synergy: 
She can ult you while your undead(passive is up).. and it stops your passive and she can then throw you... Its an undead flash.

Master tier synergy:

Another great lane. Easy farm, good poke, awesome after 6 all in. Good synergy from early to late game. All in starts with your e, Jinx trap, your ult and q and end with Jinx ult. 

Diamond tier synergy:


51_64.png
Your poke is real. Together you can easily outpush your lane and force your enemies out of lane very quickly. If your cait is really good this can be easily Master tier synergy.

Look out for this bastard. He can easily land his poison after your e and can give big damage. His ult with your q is just poetry. Very good lane.

81_64.png
Very interesting lane. You have endless poke that will make enemies cry and after 6 you have great wombo combo thanks to your cc and his ult. Very interesting lane.
