Sion is more like a mix of DotA's Abaddon and King Leoric. He lifesteals with his ultimate, he has a shield that can explode for high damage and also takes damage for him, he has a single target stun nuke, and he has a toggleable that lets him drain some of his HP to hit enemies harder and, if he kills them when this is ability is on, gains a bonus to HP permanently. Many Sions get caster items to make their shield and storm bolt hit harder and to possibly instagib many heroes. AP caster items also increase the damage the shield can take, so combining this information with the toggleable and you can have very high effective health while still taking out people in 1v1 to 1v3 situations no problem.
thanks for the dota reference and all the hero's abilities (I'm a dota palyer too). But im seeing it's either Sion or Nasus i should buy. but which one do you guys think i should get? Which ones better for like ganks and team fights? Since these games are usually about team fights and not always soloing. Maybe state some pros/cons. Thanks.
