LoL Arena: how to play Sion? Best build, Augments, Duos Combo

Arena, also known as 2v2v2v2 is the latest League of Legends (LoL) game mode. It is a very match-up dependent mode in which character is played. Indeed, with the options offered by basic LoL, sometimes the counters... do not exist. Other games, like Battlerite, are made for this style of gameplay and therefore offer a lot more outplay tools. With the nature of LoL, the 2v2v2v2 mode is therefore a really fun mode, even if it has a ranking, because the game is not designated as a base for that. 

Sion is one of the champions, and a playable character that you’ll encounter in LoL Arena / 2v2v2v2 mode. 

In all the lore of Runeterra not many characters fill the role of big bad guy better than Sion. He's not just a powerful wrecking ball on the battlefield but he does it purely out of enjoyment for killing and causing pain, that's why Noxus went out of the way to revive him. He is more powerful now since he's been resurrected and driven by blood magic.
