Get Executioner's Calling, Morello's Evil Tome, or Ignite and armor (Frozen Heart, Warden's Mail/Randuin's Omen, or Thornmail). Presto! Lifesteal diminished.

Exec's calling+exhaust, it's not that hard since Exec's calling is already a core Dominion item that many if not all ads should take every match same goes for last whisper.

As for exhaust, there will be always someone with an exhaust on the team just tell him to exhaust the Sion when he ults.

Fizz. Or any AP with a DFG, ignite and 500 AP. CC welcome but not mandatory.

this is also a nice possibility however

if he's in the Elo where sion is a problem then his teams should look like
Yi
Teemo
FIora
Tryndamere
Jax/other Sion/Viktor

asides from teemo's mushrooms which may or may not be well placed and viktor which may or may not be on the team, there's no reliable slow on the team.

AP teemo with a dfg would destroy AD sion.

Teemo, with pretty much any build, laughs at Sion.

Also, low elo wouldn't run Viktor. Replace him with a random RDPS or Annie.

Ignore the responses about how X champ beats Sion. Those are pointless because everyone has some kind of counter. Its also irrelevant to BLIND PICK which 99% of people play.
-------------

Im sorry man but AD Sion kind of sucks actually. In theory he is awesome as he has AS/AD boosts and lifesteal, and is fairly tanky. he loads up on PDs and has uber speed, high crit, hits really fast and pretty hard.

However, dominion is about burst damage and Sion doesnt have any. He stuns, walks up and starts hitting. Very very little burst. Also, he can get focused down really quickly and dead Sion doesn't lifesteal very well, nor do any DPS.

As others have mentioned he has a hard time taking a turret because of his awful range. His stun lasts just long enough for it to be a bad gap closer. He is very easy to escape and kite. He has no slowing mechanism built in.

Ive seen AD Sion do really well, but it usually only happens when the team is ALREADY WINNING. As part of a losing or tied team, he winds up not bringing much to the party.

Sion can build tanky DPS which is alright but he has the same problem. most tanky DPSers have pretty decent burst. A gapcloser, plus attack resetter, plus some other nuke. Sion doesnt. Without PDs he is so freaking slow it is hard for him to engage. he worse than Darius in this regard.

Note that His shield doesnt count either since it takes 4 sec before he can blow it up. Its basically just a life booster on AD sion.


Once you start playing better opponents you will see that AD Sion just isn't that amazing. Try playing him YOURSELF and see if you start winning every game. hint: you wont.

AD Sion is fine if you build him correctly. People that get 2-3 PDs are retarded. All you need is 1. Grab a SB for some lifesteal without having to ult and a frozen mallet (there's your slow.)

Use your stun to get close, wack away with your mallet, If they try to run, they fail and it's an easy kill. If they try to fight back, well...you should win a 1v1. What's this? Someone is coming to help *activate ult* bwahhaha. INDESTRUCTIBLE!!! That is, until you get ignited or exhausted or something and get bursted down in those 3 seconds. :'(
