How to Play Sion



Sion is a Baron Lane tank. He's one of the most versatile tanks in Wild Rift. He can adapt his build and playstyle to each game and can be played as a full tank, tanky bruiser, split pusher, and sometimes you can even build Sion as an AD assassin or bruiser. In general, Sion will always be a great tank who can fill the role needed for his team.

Sion's Abilities


Glory In Death (Passive)

Sion permanently gains bonus health whenever he kills a unit. This is increased against large units and champion takedowns. This makes Sion tanky as the game goes on. When playing in the Baron Lane, walk back and take the Krugs in your jungle. These Krugs will give you a lot of stacks and you'll gain more bonus health.

When Sion takes fatal damage, he will reanimate himself, fearing those around him for a second while slowing their movement speed. After reanimating, Sion can move and attack, but his health rapidly decays while he is reanimated. All of Sion's abilities are replaced with Death Surge, which grants him movement speed decaying over time. This passive will catch a lot of enemies off guard. So make sure you stay near enemies even when you are about to die because you can come back to life and still get a few more kills.

Decimating Smash (1)

Sion charges a heavy blow for up to 2 seconds. Whilst the ability is charging, Sion can recast. When recast, Sion slams his mace down, briefly slowing enemies hit, dealing physical damage. If Sion charges long enough, enemies are knocked up and stunned instead based on charge time.

Knowing how long you need to charge Decimating Smash to guarantee the knock-up is the most important thing you will need to learn and master. If Sion uses Decimating Smash in a bush with no vision, the ability will be hidden. You can use this as a sneak attack on the enemies.

Soul Furnace (2)

Sion gains a shield that absorbs damage for a few seconds. After a few seconds, if the shield still holds, Sion can recast to detonate the shield to deal damage to all nearby enemies.

If you want to deal damage with Soul Furnace, using the ability while using other abilities is crucial. For example, when casting Decimating Smash, use Soul Furnace; then, by the time Decimating Smash knocks up and stuns the enemy, you can walk up and recast Soul Furnace to deal damage.

Roar of The Slayer (3)

Sion fires a shockwave, dealing magic damage, slowing them for over 2 seconds and removing 20% armour for a few seconds. Non-champion's hit are knocked back.

Enemies hit by a Knocked Back unit take the same damage and effects. When in the laning phase, you want to use Roar of the Slayer on minions to try and hit the enemy champion. You can then combo this with Decimating Smash when they are slowed and take more damage.

Unstoppable Onslaught (Ultimate)

Sion charges unstoppably (meaning he cannot be cancelled by anything) in a direction, turning with player input. Sion stops when colliding with an enemy champion, structure, terrain or when recasting this ability. When this happens, Sion will slam the ground with earth-shattering force, dealing damage while stunning and knocking up enemies based on charge time.

There is no time limit on how long Unstoppable Onslaught can go on. So if you want to, you can go around the Wild Rift map multiple times, clearing minion waves!

Sion Build Breakdown


Sunfire Aegis
Hullbreaker
Thornmail
Force of Nature
Randuin's Omen
Plated Steelcaps - Gargoyle

Sion is a solo front-line tank that can survive loads of damage. Sunfire Aegis is a great core item for Sion. It gives Sion a lot of maximum health. Also, the Immolate passive helps Sion deal more damage to nearby enemies (including minions). Hullbreaker is another solid item for Sion when you are ahead, and if you are looking to split push for the rest of the game. You gain a lot of bonus resistances, which works well with the stacking health you will get from your passive, Glory in Death.


For runes, we have:

Grasp of the Undying

You can walk up to enemy champions easily using Soul Furnace for the shield to auto-attack enemy champions and start stacking the extra health that can help a lot in the mid and late-game.

Triumph

When Sion gets a champion takedown, he restores a % of his health (which is usually a lot), and he deals a % more damage to enemies that are low on health which makes his combo even stronger.

Second Wind

Second Wind greatly helps Sion during the laning phase. It allows him to heal up so he can stay in the lane longer, and the effect is doubled for melee champions like him.

Demolish

Demolish works well with champions that can split push and build Hullbreaker like Sion. It helps you push and destroy towers very quickly, giving you and your team a considerable advantage. Sion's passive allows him to gain bonus health throughout the game, increasing the damage from Hullbreaker.

Flash
Ignite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. For the 2nd spell, it's best to go for Ignite. This can help get the final bit of damage you need to get a kill on an enemy champion.

Early Game


Sion does ok in the early game. He has plenty of ways to deal damage and clear the minion wave (if needed) and a lot of defenses with Soul Furnace, which allows you to walk up and start stacking Grasp of the Undying. You can use Sion's combo as early as level 3, so much sure you make full use of dealing as much damage as possible to win the early game trades in the lane.

Late Game


Sion is a great team fight champion in the late game. You can look to stay with your team during objective fights or go into a side lane to push with Hullbreaker. When a team fight happens, you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team. You are a tank with a lot of health and resistance to survive a long time against the enemy team. Make sure you always go towards the biggest threat on the enemy team and try to kill them.

Conclusion


Overall Sion is very easy to learn but also has a lot of potential for skill expression, making him an excellent champion for new players and masters alike.
