Guide to Countering Sion as Lissandra

Tips for Playing as Lissandra against Sion

You can instantly use your ultimate on yourself by pressing the self cast key and the ultimate key at once (alt+R by default).

Lissandra's abilities are shorter range than those of many mages. As a result, buying items that offer both ability power and defense, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Banshee's Veil, can be a great choice to help her both survive and deal damage.

Casting Glacial Path and then running in the opposite direction will leave your enemies uncertain which way you will actually go.

Advice to Win Against Sion

Use the time after Sion has died to reposition and prepare for his return.

Even if Sion still hits a Decimating Smash, making him release the charge earlier reduces its impact.
