Because he stomps pubs since pubs rarely have a support at bot.

Go Taric+ Graves bot and Sion is worthless there. Go Morgana mid and Sion can't get kills off her, and put a tanky top laner and Sion wont get any kills there.


Implying that Graves and Morgana is not often banned, Sion as a last pick in solo queue almost always wins, once his shield is maxed and start roaming....you know what happens next..

Many people are used to playing morgana and kassadin and other champions that were previously considered hard counters or immovable objects but the metagame changes constantly and since Sion is a good matchup against a lot of AP mids he is considered OP, you can easily consider different champions including non-AP's, After all the metagame is just what people decided on, it's not a set rule.

Also cassiopeia is a good matchup vs him.

For people claiming weird things about his skill leveling order a proper AP sion would prioritize the shield and then the stun since they deal equal damage at max rank thus making the stun half of your damage. The key here is to skip your ultimate to reach the max rank in both as fast as possible and then level up your E. AP sion has little to no use for his ultimate, you could take 1 point in it for either turret pushing or regenerating health but definitely no more. The ultimate will scale nicely with Lich's bane however so if you coordinate that well you could get some good health regeneration out of that.

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.


This will make ap sion virtually usless...
