because people dont know how to counterpick (xerath anyone?), or cant play jungle well and gank sion constantly from level 2-6


Ganking consistently and not getting kills will slow the jungler down ALOT. And seeing how sion has a shield + stun + flash. And if he wards properly theres a low chance you're going to get him.

No one thinks of out harassing him(Destroying his shield) early game to disrupt his farm.

Put a good lanewick against him, he can't do a thing congrats. also never thought of getting a banshees?

lanewick don't do **** vs sion

lanewick can't clear waves without wriggles and wits, that means sion gets free roam or free tower vs him

I'd say its the base on the shield that makes him an effective mid against mages, its a higher base than many AP champs abilities, and scales high, which means the sheild will pretty much always still be up after an ability is used on him, and that is all he needs to nuke you.

personally, I think sion's shield should be lowered in mana cost, but have an effect where the blowing up of the shield will do only as much damage as the health of the shield. so break part of the shield, take only part of the damage...

I think that might balance his ability to effectively ward off AP characters anyway...

EDIT: oops, posted this on my little brother's account... My summoner name is Jookuh, and I support this message.
