Hi, question about AD-Sion. I checked some guides and many suggested rushing for an IE. But I wondered: since his Enrage gives a flat damage-increase, ain't attack speed much better? I mean, are phantom dancers not a better choice to rush then? Since they give also increased movement speed? Or why is IE better than the phantom thingies?

Because of the extra damage?

You want the IE for the damage and the crit% and +crit. Damage first, as a melee champ your bound to be taregeted first off and atk speed benefits you later after your a bit more tanky.

I personally like a fast Recurve Bow on my Sion for AS. His ulti does give AS, but you aren't going to be using it every time you do things like grab Lizard or something.

AS and AD both add to damage in different ways. If you're ever in a situation where you're worried about getting off only 1 attack before dying, you should be running the f*ck away.

if you chose an infinity edge each attack would do 80 extra damage, tangible increase. Also your crits are 25% stronger, another tangible increase.

Phantom Dancer is +45% attack speed, which is, basically, +45% damage. It also means more crits, both from the crit chance and the extra attacks, which means more damage. Less tangible, still good.

If 45% of your AD is >= 80, then PD is a better choice, otherwise, Infinity Edge. That's why I go AS on mundo because his AD is like 200 with Masochism.

typically for me it goes dorans shield + hppot > boots1 > biggest att dmg I can afford > ziel > boots2 > (last whipser if a tanks giving problems) inf edge> Phantom or Last whisper.

PD is great if some att speed ashe or TF is giving troubles.

if no-one is a big threat and I'm feeling cute I will get a brutalizer.

if you feel like your lacking crit remember green elix are your friend.

Ghost blade is really really good on Sion.

You already have both damage and attackspeed covered, as previously mentioned in this thread. So, the next thing you want to get is crit chance and armorpen. See: Ghostblade + Last Whisper + Atma's (once you have 2500 or so hp from raging at those minions)
