AD Sion starting items

I need sustain... His early game BLOWS. So I need something that will keep me alive and not feeding until around level 11. What'll do that?

probably aiming for a vamp scepter with bork/bt in mind is your best bet.

Get a doran's ring on one of your early bases for some mana sustain and a good chunk of damage on your abiities. Might also get them to buy MR before they know you're AD.

How about Wriggle's? Would that be good? Gives free vision on top of sustain.

It's doable, but it's rather slot inefficient for a laner. You'd probably be better off in the long run if you went something like Ninja Tabi, Dorans, and a ward every time you back. Gives the same sort of sustain as Wriggles but allows for better transition.

Sion does actually scale pretty well off of AS, due to the free AD he gets from his E. So you can afford to get an early giant's belt (or other tanky item like kindlegem for spirit visage) before getting your first couple of real damage items.

Doran's Ring or Shield? I'm assuming Ring as Shield is crap now.

Really depends on your matchup.

If you're just getting straight bullied and being forced to farm at turret exclusively, the regen and reduction from shield is going to be your best friend.

If you're getting bullied but can still afford to go out and trade every once in a while, the mana regen and AP to bolster your shield from ring is going to be really helpful.

If you're the one bullying and able to get a lot of auto's off, able to favorably trade by stunning and chopping a couple times, blade will give you that trading power and a bit of sustain to counteract your E passive.

Sion is pretty versatile. I would HOPE you could go for Doran's blade or ring, but it's not terrible if you end up getting a shield.

Going straight up AD Sion is just suicide, you should at least go hybrid pen reds for runes then start dorans ring or boots and stack a few more rings till you get a deathcap then transition into AD items.

Okay, so AD Sion gets shut down pretty easily. Is it better to just build AP?

Get flask. Then RUSH VAMP scept.
Once you get vamp you can stand there and 1v1 anytime.
