Really sion just needs a kit with more than 2 abilities. Either was you play him (ap or some variation of AD) is almost always wrong.

He needs work on both ends.

In my opinion,he should be a tanky AD guy.Crit Sion has always been mor efun for me...Oh well.Visually,I expect him to be more muscular.Don't care,if he is a zombie.He was probably a walking muscle mountain,when he was alive.The visual upgrade should show that.

I think he needs an entire rework (visuals + kit). No matter which way you go, AP or AD, he only uses two abilities essentially (Q + W for AP and E, R for AD (although a stun still is useful and a shield is nice but lots of mana for an AD))

:O

Well, I know you guys are super busy and all, but my 2 cents would be to get a kit rework and visual update done at once, just so that you can be done with it. If you just do a visual update, people will start complaining about his awkward kit.

Obviously it's a bit tricky, especially since he's one of those infinite scaling type characters. I think more gearing him towards the melee hyper carry he can be would lend himself more to the "beefy guy with axe" idea, if that's what your plan is with him. Some sort of kit rework in that regard would be awesome.

Random idea I know isn't that good, but having his W shield scale off of max HP and allows Sion to ignore cc while it lasts would be pretty neat, especially since his HP scales off his E.

Allows him to not get insta gibbed in teamfight, when the other team goes "LOL AD Sion? Exhaust/ignite".

Again, just my 2 cents, and thanks for asking a silver elo pubtrash his opinion. Makes me feel special :P

EDIT: Or you could make his ult like a Skeleton King type resurrection. Goes thematically with him being killed on the battlefield and brought back to life. Plus would make him carry material.

Dont touch AP Sion, as it counters Kat hard.

Like someone said that Sion has that hidden ability with Leona because of Plants vs Zombies. I went, Sion is a zombie? He doesn't look anything like a Zombie really... I thought he was just a big demon of some sort...

I would definitely try to bring out the more undead aspects of him, even make him a bit lankier. KEEP the axe though.
Hm. Okay- good feedback! I wonder if the problem is that he's very dated, so it's hard to make that connection? Or is it just that the original theme wasn't executed very well?

It's in the shop. You have to buy it first. What kind of game do you think this is, giving out free hats?

It might be cool if he became a gaunt shamanistic ghoul instead of a big beefy guy...

When I started playing I was flamed a lot for playing ad sion. Everyone would tell me that ap is the way pros play him, and everywhere I would hear that ad sion was garbage. But I couldn't get myself to play him ap. The guy has a giant axe, therefore he must be ad. If you were to rework the theme of the guy himself I guess I wouldn't have any problem with playing him ap though. Like above mentioned, a witch doctor esque character whose gaze might actually be frightening enough to freeze you in your tracks.

But obviously in a perfect world I would like a full ability rework where the character kit and model both get updated cohesively rather than piecemeal. It'd be the greatest thing in the world if my ad sion was somehow made viable.

Why, you'd need a digital hat simulator for such a thing.

Surely there is no game like that.

Sion would look much better being more undead; you could even go so far as to change his weapon into something entirely different and you'd still keep the same theme. His character isn't well defined. His abilities don't define him very well either, so clearly his visuals need to be made into something more defining to compensate.
