While reading the skill, it seems like it should absorb both types of damage.

1 Answer 1


Sion's shield (like most other damage shields: Shen's, Janna's) absorb damage from any source.

Only Morganna's black shield specifies a damage type (in this case, magical).

  • As Michael Hopkins notes, Morgana's black shield blocks magic damage, not physical damage. Nov 4, 2010 at 16:57
  • Whoops. That's a typo for sure. Nov 4, 2010 at 17:09
  • This includes true damage too, on things such as ignite.

  • Also important to note that Morgana's shield blocks magical effects, the most common being crowd control. No regular shields like Sion's do this.

  • Morgana's shield is basically a spell shield like Banshee's Veil combined with the magic-damage-only shield from Hexdrinker/Maw of Malmortius Jan 25, 2013 at 21:01
