It's in the shop. You have to buy it first. What kind of game do you think this is, giving out free hats?
The original theme is not executed well.
His "theme" is kind of all over the place.
He's a legendary undead warrior zombie with an axe....got'cha...
He's got a Schwarzenegger accent....er okay...
His iconic abilities are...a stare? a exploding shield?....wtf??
and he hobbles around like a munchkin his attack animation is practically not there.
If he's a Zombie warrior axe dude...he can even keep the accent, but the way he looks, the way he moves, the abilities he has...none of them make sense.
I get that Sion is one of the "trolly/humor" types of champs (similar to Nunu or Zilean)...and that's fine, but right now none of his "trolly/humor" tropes push his actual theme (zombie-schwarz-warrior)
Something like Zombie Brand...is a humorous (not so trolly though) theme, but it actually feels zombie, while still feeling like fire-mage-guy.
As it stands Sion is both unfun to play (not a lot of fun with a kit that's half in half out all the time. and point-n-click abilities/autoattacks/notevenanability/whatkindofpassiveisthat),
And for me personally...he is the LEAST fun champion to go up against. His stun is just lame. AP Sion's shield sounds like I'm pooping out of my ears (or squeezing into really really chafed leather tights), while getting bursted down. And AD' Sion's ult...the AOE lifesteal for team....it just makes me want to drop the game and go outside (maybe run up a really steep hill with those chafed tights on)
