Summoner Spells Back to Top

Welcome to my insane Sion AD Guide for the jungle. I want to show you how strong this "trollbuild" really is. Sions ad scaling is huge and many guys underestimate him, if he has some more ad as usual. I want to play a lot ranked in the next time to climb up to higher ratings, also i will keep this guide updated for you.

Try this version of Sion and have fun with him. You will need a few trys to get a feeling how this whole thing works and when you have to pick Sion.

I pick Sion for jungle if the enemy team doesn´t got too much mobility, but you can handle even LeBlanc etc. As often, you depend on your team and how good they react to your calls. Sions ganks are strong and weak in the same moment - but why? If you hit and stun the enemys, the chance is really high, that they will die - if you miss one or two moves, you really ruined it.

If Sion just got one AD item, his damage is also well with just the Ghostblade.

You think 17.png is the demon? Punish your enemys while waiting in good positions with your nice combo and they will tilt a lot.


Flash:

4.png You will ever need Flash to escape risky situations, save your life or get a sneaky kill or combo on enemys.
I would ever prefer this as one of your summoner spells. Other summoner spells aren´t worth for sion jungle in my opinion.




Smite:


11.png  Take it! Take it now! As jungle you definitely need it, what else? I prefer chilling smite (blue smite) for a extra slow while ganks, a very bit extra damage and the possibility to execute champions with low health.
As sion you are very kiteable, cause you don´t have any gap closer, so a extra slow would be great and by the way, you steal their movement, so they are slowed and you are a bit faster.
The challeging smite (red smite) enables a bit more damage over time with your basic attacks, but the problem is that you wont hit that much auto attacks in ganks. You just use your spells most of the time while the enemys tries to escape. The reduced damage got from smited targets is good, but later if you became tanky, you wont be focussed. You just have the bonus of truesight of the enemys in case of shaco or rengo etc.
I prefer chilling smite! If you want to use the warding jungleitem you will "only" get more vision, but your ganks are a bit weaker.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

This is the best page you can choose for ad sion in jungle. It helps you to be a bit tanky while you rush Ghostblade.

Ferocity:

Sorcery:

Your most attacks are your spells, so increased ability damage is the best choice. Sion isn´t a auto attack champion, so he won´t need attack speed.


Double Edged Sword:

Damage! All you want...


Natural Talent:

For Sions mixed damage this is much better than a bit of lifesteal and spellvamp. Vampirism is never worth on sion.


Oppressor:

You stun and slow the enemys like a waterfall, so their is a lot damage done by this mastery. If you are sure to kill every one you can choose bounty hunter, but i won´t prefer this - because if you won´t get the kills, its useless.


Resolve:

Unyielding:

You will have tons of life, so more armor and magic resist would be awesome. You won´t need this little life regeneration.

Tough Skin:

More tankiness, less damage taken, what else?

Runic Armor:

Your shield become awesome in mid and lategame, so more shield means more awesomeness. GG EZ

Insight:

With this one you are able to use smite more often. Will help you in the first jungle run and for more smiteempowered ganks.

Swiftness:

You are kiteable as i told you before. It will help you a lot and also even more than the armor in teamfights.You need to peel, you cant if you are too slow or stunned.

Strenght of the Ages:

This is the masterpiece of all keystone masteries for sion jungle. Your passive gives you bonus health, also this will give you a lot amount of health. This scales awesome with cinderhulk and your shield. It will give you a huge tankiness while you build your 1-2 damage items - thats why you are so strong in jungle.

sionpassive.png Glory in Death (Passive)

If you die, they will die. You reanimate yourself to slap the asses which killed you. You have 100% lifesteal and can activate a speed buff for chasing them into death (yours, theirs or both). You also have increased on hit damage to kill them even faster. I prefer not to use this passive, so stay alive! :P


crypticgaze.png Q - Decimating Smash (or the 5 years stun)

Thats you main damage spell. Activating this will sion let a atomic bombshell hit their faces. If you hit fully loaded they will be stunned for 2,25 seconds and get tons of damage, escpecially when you got your ad-items. You can also use it for a fast slap with a slow or a medium hit with a minimum 1,25 second stun. The animation will have a switching colour (red into dark red - normal skin) at this point you know, that it will stun them. Holding it even longer highers your damage and the stun duration. They will also be knocked up - so you can make wombo combos with yasuo. The AD-Scaling is hilarious. 20/40/60/80/100 (+0.6*AD) to 60/120/180/240/300 (+1.8*AD) physical damage.


deathscaressfull.png W - Soul Furnace

Super amazing defensive and offensive ability. Passive: Sion gains 2 maximum Health when he kills a unit (10 for large monsters and champion kills or assists). Active: Sion shields himself for 30/55/80/105/130 (+0.4*AP) (+6/7/8/9/10% of maximum health) for 6 seconds. After 3 seconds, while the shield holds, Sion can reactivate to deal 40/65/90/115/140 (+0.4*AP) plus 10/11/12/13/14% of the target's maximum Health as magic damage to nearby enemies. Max 400 bonus damage to minions and monsters.

You have to try by yourself when to use this correctly - it depends very on the situation. This ability allows you to clear the jungle, especially blue and red, very fast because of his high damage and %-damage. In case of ganks, use it while running into your enemy, so it can charge and you can release it when you are in range for it after a slow or something.

enrage.png E - Roar of the Slayer

Sion fires a shockwave, dealing 70/105/140/175/210 (+0.4*AP) magic damage to the first enemy hit, slowing it by 40/45/50/55/60%, and reducing its Armor by 20% for 2. 5 seconds. If the target is not a champion, it will be knocked back. Enemies that the knocked back unit collides with take 30% bonus damage and are slowed by 40/45/50/55/60%.

If you gank, try to kick a minion into them for a long range slow. The armor reduction is nice, but not that needed while you gank in the laning phase. So its better to slow him, so your laner can attack him too, than to reduce his armor on short distance and he may escape.


cannibalism.png R - Unstoppable Onslaught

Sion charges in a direction for 8 seconds and can steer slowly towards the mouse cursor. While charging, Sion is immune to all Crowd Control. Reactivating will cancel Sion's charge early. When Sion collides with an enemy champion or wall, he deals 150/300/450 (+0.4*Bonus AD) physical damage and knocks up enemies in a small area for 0.75 seconds. Enemies in a larger area take the same damage and are slowed by 40/45/50% for 3 seconds. The damage increases to 300/600/900 (+0.8*Bonus AD) and the stun increases to 1.75 seconds as Sion charges farther.

You have to learn to control this, but its very strong for "long range ganks". You can escape and chase with this ability. Also there are many moves you can do with it. Flash + R means nice crowd control out of nowhere in teamfights or something. If you got the skin "Mecha Zero Sion" the sound which appears when you use the ult isnt that loud like the normal skin sound. So if you are lucky, many enemys won´t even recognize that the pain train arrives. I just saw it very often.

Beware! Your ult can be stopped by Trundle pillar, Anivia wall, Jarvan Ult, Taliyah Ult , Azir´s wall and so on.. why the fuck they call it unstoppable then?

Its like

Combos:

In the Jungle: Ninja Combo!

You can wait in bushes or bait enemys with "misplaced" pinkwards near bushes. Charge your Q and meanwhile you activate W - if the Q finally hits, reactivate W and E, to the end of the Q-Stun use R if needed for another stun and more dmg. There aren´t that much champions surviving this combo. It won´t work that good, when they see you. It also can work in teamfights, especially with Mecha Zero-Skin the animation of the Q is nearly invisible in team fights. Enjoy stunning!

crypticgaze.png Charging -> deathscaressfull.png activate ->crypticgaze.pngrelease ->deathscaressfull.png reactivate->enrage.png slow and reduce armor ->cannibalism.png use R if needed and repeat the whole rotation

Make auto attacks if possible, but watch the stunduration - you will get a better feeling for this after a while.


Ganks:

As i told long before, if you can reach the enemy laner, activate W, slow with chilling smite (if needed and possible) or kick a E in their face and after this you need to charge your Q - release it at the latest time possible. A stun means often death for them,  you also can pull many flashes4.png with your Q, makes the lane even easier for your laner.


Teamfights:

Sion is in this case a bruiser which means, you do damage and you are also tanky. Try to peel for your carries and to stun the enemies. If you are in their lines, stun and destroy them. A stun from you in teamfights at their ADC or assassins means their death. Try to reactive your W in their lines to hit all of them.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is the starting setup. You will just need the 3 potions for your first jungle run. You definitely need the manaregeneration, Sion needs a lot of mana. After this, your sustain in jungle is enough - you won´t need any hunters or refillable potions.

Core Items

    First Rush Ghostblade, it gives you nice damage and more movement/attackspeed. Great for ganks and midgame. 2nd Item need to be Cinderhulk, cause you shouldnt be too squishy. You can choose between upgrading Jungle item before Ghostblade or just to play with Hunter´s Talisman. I recommend to play just with Talisman and upgrade after Ghostblade. I also recommend to buy up to 4 long swords if you are back the first time. Upgrade it later to Serrated Dirk and Caulfield´s Warhammer.
    This Choice depends on match. If you are even or ahead, buy this for maximum crazy damage. If your team got a lack of tankiness you better go tanky.
    You need boots for being extra dangerous and train-like. Take Ninja-Tabis if your enemys team has a lot ad and especially auto attack heavy team (Xin Zhao, Vayne, Jinx, Yasuo etc.) Mercurys are for mixed enemy team for extra tenacity and if they got a lot magic damage.

Situational Items

    This Items will give you the tankiness you need. Warmogs isn´t that worth, you need armor and magic resistance.
    You can think about using this ones, but its not that worth in my opinion. Maw is just good if you take it instead of Duskblade of Draktharr in case of needing more MR and AD.
    These items are USELESS. Never buy them! Sunfire Cape got nice stats, but the burning effect is also given by your cinderhulk.

With this build the basic strategy is to get much health from your passive and the keystone mastery.
In early and midgame you clear a lot jungle and gank if possible. Don´t gank pushed lanes, its a waste of time.
If the enemy laner is pushed in with low health, you can try to towerdive with your cannibalism.png and deathscaressfull.png. You also can kick enrage.png minions into them, but it won´t hurt them so much, because E is maxed at last.

The more you farm, the more tanky you become.
With reaching midgame you are over 2000 Health and got Ghostblade with almost up to ~170 AD (minute >13).
Cinderhulk will give you a huge spike of tankiness and you are beneath or over 2500 health (depends on your kills and farms).
So you are tanky in midgame (early lategame) and can build Duskblade of Draktharr if you aren´t behind. Please watch your team and your stats when you decide to become more tanky or to build more aggressive. If your team has a lack of tankiness, go tanky to win the game - your damage with Ghostblade is also well.
With this playstyle you depend very much on your team.
In late midgame and lategame you can become huge. You have up to ~350 AD while being over 3000 health or more and got a lot of resiliences. (also depends on kills, farms and drakes)

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Many guys underestimate Sion in Jungle, also i did before i tested it in a few games. Lets talk about what Sion makes good or bad in jungle.

PRO:

  • Strong AD-Scaling
  • a lot CC
  • insane lategame scaling
  • Tankiness
  • %-Damage ability
  • strong ganks (cc and damage)
  • high synergy with wombo combos, especially Yasuo
  • strong passive for teamfights
  • underestimated, so you can surprise them how strong you are
  • easy/medium kit
  • with your decent AD you can carrie with a few early kills
  • nice legendary skin, you can be a train - thats what you ever wanted ;)


Contra:

  • kiteable
  • effectiveness depends on team
  • weak in 1v1 if you miss an ability (or combo)
  • squishy if you are behind
  • you depend on your farm to become very tanky
  • big hitbox
  • no gapcloser

How to Back to Top

General

You become automatically tanky with your passive and your keystone mastery.
If you got Ghostblade finished, you have a nice powerspike, especially you are now able to fight a while longer because you can use your auto attacks more efficient with the higher attack speed. You should do your combo and after this activate Ghostblade - after the Ghostbladebuff you can restart the combo, because your cooldowns are (nearly) over.


How to start jungle

Start at gromp with help. -> do blue buff -> wolves -> raptors -> possiblity to gank mid? do it or go to golems -> after golems and/or gank go to red buff -> after red,  can you make a botlane gank? do it --- if not, clear Mr. Crabs and clear the respawned part of the blue side -> top gank possible? do it or go back

When to smite in the first run? Your first smite is on position 1 (gromp) for extra damage. I recommend to wait a while for the next smite on position 5a (golems/krugs) to get the stun buff and for the smite on red to heal yourself. Both last smites will be ready at the time you need them. After position 6 you can decide to do another gank, to go back or to clear the respawned part of your jungle (gromp/wolves) or maybe Mr. Crabs in the river.

That was your first run, go back and buy your toys.

Jungle.jpg

Thats your route in top jungle (red team). On the other side it would be the same order.


Invade Jungle or deny enemy jungle?

Sion is weak in the enemy jungle. Just go there if you are fed or sure, that there won´t be any enemy. You can deny their farm if they gank or something or you got enough vision. I won´t recommend to go in their jungle with no or less vision.


How to fight in jungle?

In Jungle you are not that strong in 1v1 situations. But you can win easy, if you can place a "ninja-combo" in their faces. You always can win a 1v1 in jungle if you can hit a full combo. Beware fighting against champions which can interrupt your Q or your R. Try to kite them while your W is charging and let them explode after the duration.
