Now that Dominion has been live for a few days, I’m sure people are settling into some comfortable champions and team compositions. I’ve actually been taking the opposite approach, picking a new champion in nearly every game. I’ve doubled up in a few places, but for the most part I’ve just been trying to see what works (note: Veigar is awful).
There is one champion I’ve been enjoying above the rest, even though I think I’ve lost every game in which I’ve played him: Sion. Sion has always been a little bit of a letdown for me on Summoner’s Rift. He’s great at pubstomping as an AP toon, but by late game he’s really hurting for damage. Attack damage Sion never seemed to cut it, mostly because of his movespeed, attack range, and the sprawling nature of most teamfights on Summoner’s Rift.
On Dominion, though, attack damage Sion has been a blast. Like I said, I’m pretty sure I’ve lost every game I’ve played with him, but they have been so much fun I don’t really care. Attack damage Sion is one of the few champions in the game that can legitimately overturn situations that are stacked against his team’s favor. With enough damage, his ultimate starts to heal for massive amounts, even with the debuff on the Crystal Scar. Thanks to the early and consistent gold gain from Dominion, Sion can reach that point fairly quickly.
Who has been your go-to pick on Dominion? Have you been jumping around or sticking with one champ?
