“Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport
Tips: If you E cancel his Q, he will get it back on a very short cooldown, but it's still the right decision in a lot of scenarios. Passive shield his Q and E poke. Save your W for after he dies, you can block his AAs (prevents him from life stealing) and save allies.”
“I would recommend playing a PTA and Ghost combo into him as he is 99% of the time going to build straight into Adaptive Helm, causing us to deal absolutely zero damage to him mid-game. PTA pretty much counters him in every way due to dealing 8-12% & 10% extra damage from Liandries & allowing for a (E)+(W) max with BOTRK. Avoid his bush cheese level 1, keep yourself on the rivers side and watch as he (Q)'s a minion wave from them. Watch your Red/Blue he may steal through his suicide passive. It's really all about kiting his (E) slow and then avoiding his (Q) charge up. Watch out for his (6) ult from base!
You Can Easily Parry his Q and Ult.
Play around your Conquerer and you wont lose against him.
Don't All-in before Level 6, only take short trades.
Another really easy lane for Yorick (unless you play vs Thebausffs).
Farm up and as soon as u have ur first item and cats/maiden ready, you will win.
Can also block his R engage with ur wall in teamfights.”
“You can only lose this lane if you literally play without your Q, you can avoid most of his abilities and make it really hard for him to to anything about it. However, he can get pretty tanky really fast so you might end up having a farm lane. This is really bad as he outscales you hard, same strat as malphite except you can fight him later levels no problem even if he gets bramble. Just avoid getting hit by his Q and fight with full passive and you auto win. Start Q and last hit the minions with Q to build up your passive, try to not shove him in so you can try and get lvl 2 first. If you do, level E immediately and land it on him. If you do you can chunk him hard or get his flash. Always be aggressive against Sion if you know where the enemy jungler is, as you have much higher sustain and his damage is low as long as you avoid his skill shots. Its a face roll lane after you get botrk as well.”
“TL;DR - EASIEST LANE. DON’T LET HIM FARM.
Sion is among the easiest lanes in the game. There is nothing he can do. Just be careful level 1 as he might be cheesing your redbuff or charging up his Q in a bush. In all honesty, there is no way Sion can actually solo beat you. Your E cancels his Q as well. You can very easily dive him. Your ultimate resets off of his passive form which is good to remember. You also get your passive if you stack it on his passive form. He can escape with R in level 6 but you should have a massive lead before then.”
“One of the real counters to you! Try to survive and farm.”
“Keep in mind sions like to start in the lane bushes and try to get an early cheesey Q off so don't go near them. Similar to other tanks where he is hard to punish early but not a very difficult matchup, just more of a scaling matchup, try to have good movement against sion and dodge his Q's and R's as they're super predictable, you can also use your E to fling him out of his Q if you predict he is going to charge it up, remember if you're going to win the fight against sion to walk in front of where he wants to ultimate so he can't escape, you can also flash into his ultimate to cancel him from escaping. Cull is also a great early option again here since it's another scaling matchup, once you have Black Cleaver you should be trying to force fights, and especially once you get death's dance you should 100% win.”
This matchup is easy if he goes tank, and easier if he goes full lethality. Nasus has too much sustain for Sion to deal with in lane. After level 6 and sheen, Sion will never be able to contest Nasus. The best he can do is try to stonewall, but you outscale and out teamfights him anyways. In lane, focus on dodging his Qs, which should be very easy to do, and farming up a storm so you will be a monster mid game. If Sion goes full lethality, he is wintrading, as it would be easier for you to kill him and he cannot stop your split at all.
“Dodge his Q and you should be fine. Gets pretty tanky so might be hard to kill until you get some items. After he dies run away as his passive form deals quite a lot of damage.”
