“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.”
“Hard trade level 1 before his passive has stacked. Combo in and break his Q channel with your W. You need to push leads in lane or he outscales you pretty easily.”
“Parry his Q if he often charges it or his health bubble. You can also use it on his Ult if he uses it poorly. If he has ult and you are winning, try to position yourself on top of him towards his escape route so he cant ult away. If you land your riposte early game when he wastes Q, you should win as his attack speed is already fairly slow. Take note of his W shield cooldown and play around it when possible as it can turn 1v1s.”
“Max W>E>Q and invest in tenacity - Sunfire Aegis.
Control his R with your W.
Control his Q with your Q+E or W.
The better player will win the duel.”
“Level 1 with full passive you win, level 2 also, use your E to cancell his Q, this match up isnt as hard as people think, ping when he is missing, use your Q to dodge his Q if your E isnt up”
“If you can avoid his E, then the rest of his trade will miss you due to your mobility. You can out trade him on mistakes pretty easily. Important thing is dodging his E. Easy matchup if you can. ”
“If you won't play risky everything should be easy in this match up. If you will fall behind then it's hard for Jax to do something cuz he gets tankiness from his W and runes. Don't forget about his passive cuz he can still get you down after dying but your E counter his passive very well. Avoid coming close to bushes because he will try to make ,,invisible'' Q at you. At 1 lvl try to all in him. Botrk + Divine Sunderer if there is more armor stackers on enemy recommended.”
“Quinn's E actually CANCELS Sion's Q, but puts it on a 2 second CD. To play the matchup correctly, play back to dodge Sion E (just watch out for your minions and try to not stay in a straight line from Sion behind your minions so Sion will be unable to use his E on you).
Next, if Sion EVER charges Q, immediately vault him to cancel his Q, and then go for a quick PTA proc trade and back up before his Q comes back up (canceling his Q puts it on a VERY short 2 second CD, so don't be greedy).
99% of Sion's don't know that you can do this, but after you do this mechanic a few times, the Sion's will start reactivating their Q quicker.
However, Sion's Q ONLY knocks you up if it's charged for at least 1 full second. So, you must vault Sion very quick to avoid being knocked up, because otherwise Sion will Q you mid vault if you wait too long and actually cancel your Vault, putting you in a dangerous position.
Post 6, your goal is to try to side step his R (quite hard to do, but it's really the only option).
If Sion lands his R on you, then don't panic. If his R was fully charged, you will be stunned for 1.75 seconds, but if the charge isn't for long, it goes 0.75 seconds (the duration is .75-1.75 depending on his charge time).
If he lands R on you and he isn't charging for long, then you are quite safe because Sion will use Q after, but if you're stunned for 0.75 seconds, then you can vault away from his Q after safely because Sion will be unable to channel his Q for 1+ seconds to knock you up.
TLDR, just don't get hit by Sion's fully charged R, If you hear that Sion sound, then RUN FOREST, RUN!!! Go Lord doms 3rd to pen his armour, when you have it then you beat sion up later on (:”
“You can kite him extremely easily, and run out of his Q (Decimating Smash) dodging his E (Roar of the Slayer) is important because it sets up most of his other abilities.
I recommend taking Fleet Footwork ”
“To out trade him dodge his Decimating Smash(Q) or if you can't interrupt his channel. Avoid being in front of Sion to dodge majority of his Damage. Dodge his Roar of the Slayer(E) to prevent from being slowed. If you dodge his skills, you should be able to out trade him. Consider flashing or be in front of his Unstoppable Onslaught to either prevent escape or his impact in team fights. (Fling stops casting on his Decimating Smash) (Mega Adhesive prevents Unstoppable Onslaught from being cast, but does not stop it) (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Demonic Embrace) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
