True but who needs magic pen when you've been dominating top lane and have boots2, 2 dorans rings and a deathcap by 20 minutes

AP sion wrecks early and mid game, but once people start getting MR and damage, he falls apart. His shield crumbles so fast he cant do anything but run around till the CD is back up. You'll just have to play defensive against an AP sion unless you call for ganks or the sion is bad.

I think he can still be good late game as long as he plays like how a mage should be played (stay behind the tank, don't soak damage so your shield breaks), especially if he has a strong early-mid game (which is easy because he can gank and farm extremely well)

If you can't manage to drop 400 gold for MR you will need eventually anyway then at least grab pendant of regrowth...

Swapping lanes would be a good idea also. Any ranged can farm just fine in his lane or maybe someone with hp regen/heal.

You don't. Sion is a very powerful champion that you just stay very far away from.

To avoid suffering his wrath, you prioritize the following:

- mobility, with which to stay far away from Sion
- CC, with which to stop Sion when he is not far away from you
- defense or regeneration, with which to recover when Sion was the opposite of far away

Enjoy!

Not to mention a good AP sion will still build hourglass/abyssal scepter/maybe even guardian angel in some cases.

A good AP sion can still have over 500 AP, while maintaining 3k+ HP and 100+ MR/ARmor, so when late game does roll around you can be a fairly effective off tank with your shield.

He's FOTM, so he's going to get nerfed like every other Champion. Just wait till then and thank the QQers.
