Summoner Spells Back to Top

506.png

4.png


4.png Flash is without any doubt the best summoner spell in League of Legends. It allows you to escape countless situations and also make incredible plays. Please take it.


179.png

12.png AND 14.png


12.png Teleport is something that we've seen being used very frequently by the pro players. This summoner is one of the most effective at the moment. Using 12.png  will allow you to come back faster in a lane, also in case you are behind, you'll be able to catch those minions and farm up. and it will also allow you to split push.

14.png Ignite isn't so popular anymore at higher ranks, due to the utility that other spells have gained in the current meta. I recommend taking this spell only if you know that you'll pressure your opponent and your jungler will be around for some kills. Ignite truly guarantees you some kills. If you're smurfing, you should consider taking it for mid lane domination.

New Runes Back to Top

506.png
Those are the runes I'm using, I found them to be pretty good so far. Since they were recently implemented, it still needs more testing, and there might be better ways to build it. 


179.png

Why Sorcery as the main path?

179.png

  • Arcane%20Comet.png?width=64 I prefer comet a lot more than Aftershock.png?width=32 which also a lot of 14.png players use, The reason why I prefer Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32 is that it adds some extra damage to sione.png which will allow you to poke a lot in lane and deal extra damage. Since sione.png slows down the target, Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32 will be able to hit pretty easily
  • Manaflow%20Band.png?width=64 This rune is a very good choice on 14.png since you're going to be using your sione.png + Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32 to poke, it will cost some mana, Manaflow%20Band.png?width=32 is just perfect, this rune will allow to gain 25 maximum mana when you hit an enemy with an ability, upon getting 250 maximum mana, Mana Flow restores 1% of your missing mana every 5s. This will definitely save you some mana and also some more mana sustain.
  • Celerity.png?width=64 Since your sionr.png will give you a lot of movement speed, it synergizes very well with 14.png , it will give you bunch of damage on your sionr.png. Also, some extra movement speed doesn't hurt on 14.png since it can be hard catching up with the enemy in your lane, you're a tank after all.
  • Scorch.png?width=64 Well, very useful in the lane as well, you'll be poking with your sione.png ,  while using Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32 + Manaflow%20Band.png?width=32it's just an ideal rune to deal extra damage while poking!

179.png

Why Resolve as the secondary path?
179.png

  • Bone%20Plating.png?width=64 Basically, since you'll most likely be engaging with your sionr.png or sionq.png, this rune will help you take less damage from the next 3 spells or attacks.
  • Conditioning.png?width=64 After 10 Minutes, you gain extra defensive stats, which goes very well with bone plating, you're also a tank and you'll be most useful at the front line,  Conditioning.png?width=32 will help you stay alive!

Passive.jpg

  • It can be a great tool after you die, most people will even forget about you after your death. Punish them for that.

Q.jpg
  • This ability can be a game changer, it can stop people from dashing towards you.
  • If it's fully charged it knocks up and stuns, which is fatal, especially if there is a 157.png on your team.
  • It can also be used to peel, and even to engage. Don't forget, people cant see your sionq.png charge if you're in the brush!
W.jpg
  • This is the ability that makes trading so much easier in lane.
  • It allows you to wave clear, and makes you fairly tanky.
  • Make sure to protect your sionw.png, in case it's broken you won't be able to reactivate it for some AOE damage.
E - 8.10.jpg
  • This is the reason why we're going to use Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32in this guide.
  • If you land your sione.png your opponent will suffer, it's a safe harass that does a decent amount of damage if you hit most of your sione.png's you'll force your opponent out of the lane!
  • Make sure to use it wisely since there's a chance of losing creeps!
  • The best way to use this ability is to wait for someone to come close to you (walk towards you/walk away from you while they're close), then your chance of missing will be minimal
R - 8.10.jpg

  • One of the most fun ultimates in the game.
  • You can use it as an escape or as an engage.
  • You can also use it while split pushing, to escape certain situations, and that's why I've recommended 12.png as the secondary summoner.
  • sionr.png + sionq.png combo is just deadly and by the time you're landing your 2nd stun from your sionq.png,  your opponents will be heavily damaged if not killed by your team.
  • No longer blocked by Azir's R.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Pretty decent for trading, and it gives you good sustain early.
    Standard against a poke lane.

Core Items

    Your first back should look similar to this.
    This is your core item, it will allow you to keep up in the fight thanks to the active effect of the item.
    This is your core, leaving the rest of your items to be quite situational, as a tank, you can be more creative depending on the situation.

Situational Items

    If they have a lot of AP Damage
    For Split-pushing
    If they have a lot of AD Damage.


179.png

Build Path

179.png
  • Start with 2033.png+3340.png since it will give you a great sustain in lane, and also since you're most likely going to poke from the safe distance with your sione.png, you most likely won't need a 1054.png start. Also, it will give you some bonus damage while you're drinking the 2033.png
  • On your first back, you should aim to get at least a 3024.png , 1001.png and a 2055.png if possible.
  • Upgrade your 3024.png to 3800.png as soon as possible which will allow you to keep up with the enemy, since you don't have a lot of movement speed, and will give you bonus mana so you could spam your sione.png more along with other abilities.
  • Your core should look very similar to this 3047.png3800.png3193.png
  • Also, make sure to analyze the enemy team, if they have a heavy AP composition, you might want to rush some magic resist like 3065.png instead of 3193.png

The most important thing to retain here is that you need to be flexible and adapt your build according to your team needs and also paying extreme attention to the enemy team

VS

Camille

Medium
  • She can be a pain to deal with, she's mobile, but you should have an alright time in lane against her.

VS

Darius

Hard
  • Darius does very well against tanks thanks to dariusaxegrabcone.png which is his engage.
  • He can cancel your sionq.png with his dariusaxegrabcone.png pretty easily, and deal quite a bit of damage.
  • Try your best to survive the lane, cause you're not going to have a fun time

  • When you start stacking armor he'll not be so hard anymore, but you early might be painful.

VS

Fiora

Hard
  • ;Try to not let her proc her vitals;
  • The reason why she counters you the most is that once you try to land your sionq.png, she can easily fioraw.png it;
  • Also not to mention she can dodge most of your stuff with her fioraq.png
  • Your best bet is to play very safely, don't let her fiorar.png you.

VS

Gangplank

Medium
  • This will be a farm and poke matchup;

  • Make sure you don't miss any minion and dodge his barrels;

  • If you get ahead, build some armor and he won't be able to hurt you anymore.

VS

Gnar

Medium
  • Try not to let him proc by gnarw.png ;
  • Make sure to watch out for his mega form;
  • He can be very annoying with his poke.

VS

Irelia

Medium
  • You should watch out for her ireliaequilibriumstrike.png when she has more health than you, as it can stun and interrupt your sionq.png
  • Her ireliahitenstyle.png deals true damage, and that's pretty bad for you since you're a tank. Build more health early instead of armor.
  • Make sure to watch out for minions, cause if they're low, she can ireliagatotsu.png, which will reset afterward, making it impossible to hit your sione.png and sionq.png.

VS

Jax

Medium
  • Don't trade with him when he has his jaxcounterstrike.png up;
  • He can jaxleapstrike.png away from your sionq.png pretty easily;
  • Your best bet is to just try and poke him in lane.

VS

Kled

Medium
  • Best thing to do is try to poke him down since he has A LOT of HP.
  • He can klede.png away from your sionq.png, so it will be pretty challenging to hit him, or even stun him.
  • He's also able to kledq.png away once he is off the skarl, and that way dodge your sionq.png
  • Your best bet is to poke him down with your sione.png and get 3047.png and 3075.png since most of his damage comes from Auto Attacks.

VS

Nasus

Easy
  • Try to set up a play with your jungler in order to deny him early.
  • Since he'll be focused on getting the cs, try poking him down with yoursione.png

VS

Nautilus

Easy
  • He's simply just too weak to kill you (in the terms of damage)
  • as soon as he uses nautilusanchordrag.png you can counter it with your sionq.png + sionw.png
  • watch out as he can cancel your sionq.png with his nautilusanchordrag.png

VS

Renekton

Medium
  • The reason why I've put this as a medium threat is because 58.png is a lane bully and you're not going to have a nice time playing against him early;
  • He can cancel your sionq.png with his renektonpreexecute.png, or he could just renektonsliceanddice.png out of it, so it will be pretty hard to hit your sionq.png;
  • Since 58.png falls off late, with your tankyness he won't be able to kill you that easily.

VS

Riven

Medium
  • She has a lot of mobility to dodge your sione.png and sionq.png;
  • You will have a problem killing her, so your best bet is to poke her in lane.

VS

Yasuo

Medium
  • He's very mobile so he'll be able to dodge your sionq.png and sione.png;
  • Try your best to poke him with your sione.png pre 6, cause once he reaches level 6, he'll get his yasuorknockupcombow.png, and if he lands his tornado on you, he'll gain extra armor penetration thanks to his yasuorknockupcombow.png, which can kill you pretty easily;
  • Don't count to get the kill with your sionpassive.png, since he'll escape easily with his yasuodashwrapper.png

Playstyle Back to Top

506.png
179.png

Early Game

179.png
  • Early on, your main objective is to harass with your sione.png, just make sure to watch out and not miss cs;
  • The reason why this will work so well is that you're going to be running Arcane%20Comet.png?width=32+Manaflow%20Band.png?width=32+Scorch.png?width=32;
  • You can also use your sionw.png as a farming tool if the creeps are low, or harass, but be careful since your shield will break easily at lower levels;
  • If you're against a heavy poke lane. instead of 2033.png you should be getting 1054.png.
179.png

Mid Game

179.png
  • Once you hit level 6, you should be looking for roams, as Sion is very good at roaming with his sionr.png
  • Usually, people, don't expect you to use sionr.png as early, and that's where you have an advantage.
  • Make sure to keep farming, but also go for objectives, at this point, you'll be getting tanky, so you'll want to help your team secure objectives.
  • Make sure to use your 12.png to make waves always pushing.
179.png

Late Game

179.png
  • Late game can depend on you, as 14.png you can literally sionr.png yourself and either win the game or lose the game, be very careful about how you use your sionr.png.
  • Make sure to keep the waves pushed in (minion waves) and group up with your team, look to catch someone with your sionq.png or sionr.png.
  • It is very important for you to be around with your team, as you're both the engage and the front line for your team, one wrong move might lose you the game.

Tips & Tricks Back to Top

506.png

  • Roams with your sionr.png are very effective, and can be a game changer early to mid game;
  • Make sure to poke with your sione.png, the way to make it hit easier is if you sione.png when they're going towards you;
  • Your enemy cant see your sionq.png charging up if you're in the bush;
  • If you kill anything with sionw.png's damage (even minions) you'll get permanent health;
  • sionr.png can damage both players and turrets.

Combos Back to Top

Keep in Mind:

14.png Can be very creative on how the combos are done in different situations
but these are main combos.
179.png

sione.png+sionq.png = The reason this combo is effective is that you'll get the slow from sione.png, which will make it a lot easier for you to hit your sionq.png.

sionw.png+sionr.png+sionw.png+sionq.png+sione.png= This is the main engage combo that you'll be using, make sure to re cast sionw.png at the moment you land so you do proper AOE damage to everyone around you, and the person you ulted, its a good extra damage, afterwards you'll use your sione.png for an extra slow.

Player's Mentality Back to Top

506.png

Pro Mindset

The most successful players all have one thing in common, either they win or lose, they always think "what could have I done better?". This is the key for you to become closer to the greatest players, it's not about how many games you play in a day, it's about what you learn from each of them. 

179.png

Tiltproof

The easiest thing to do when you are losing a game is to blame your team, even if you're right, that won't give any help on winning the game. If you really want to get to the next level, try to keep cool and boost our teammate's morale. 

179.png

Winning Attitude

Everyone is fed in the other team, your team is far behind and the easiest thing to do here is surrender. You might argue that it'll save you a lot of time and playing would be a waste. Yes, you're right, but some of those games you'll actually win, and you'll learn much more from hard games than from easy games that finish at 15min. Just keep focus and don't stop believing. Everyone throws, even the pros.

179.png

Think about this:

If you're one of those players stuck in Silver, you feel like you deserve much more, but you are just unlucky and can't climb, it feels like a curse that Riot put on you. I will tell you straight away there's no such thing, and yes, sometimes we can be very unlucky, but it doesn't last. If you're stuck there, you might've been doing something wrong, the proof is that people boost accounts and they know exactly what to do in order to carry a game and climb quickly. If you find yourself in that situation, I suggest watching some of your own replays, maybe your mechanics are good but it only takes a few mistakes for you to not be able to carry your team. Start thinking, what could have you done better? The other team is silver too, if you're much better you should be able to outplay them in every way possible.

Special: How to get in The Zone Back to Top

506.png

179.png
What is being "In The Zone"?

179.png
  • It's a state of mind where you become extremely focused and hyper-productive!

  • Being in the zone is being completely immersed in what you're doing. Losing the sense of time is very common while in this state of mind.

  • You'll be able to predict your opponents movements and see them almost like in slow motion!


    179.png

    How to enter "The Zone".
    179.png

  • Think about what you're doing and your role.

  • Get rid of distractions. (Close the door if open. Being in a conversation will most likely stop you from entering this state as you'll get distracted easily).

  • You need a deep understanding of what you're doing. (Once again, know your role and your opponent as well).
  • Create a balance between challenge and skill. Big challenges require huge skill. Taking a step bigger than your leg will only get you demotivated. (Yes, this one is for boosted accounts.)

  • Be patient, it might take some time to achieve and master this state of mind.

  • Now that you know about it, you just made it easier.

  • As you may notice, balance is key. Even if your skill level is low, a small challenge for some people can be a true one for you!



    (I do not own this video.)

  • Use headphones.

  • Those sounds will help you achieve a focused state of mind.
