Runes

Armor penta rune : this is just an amazing rune lets u cut through the enemies armor at early / late game
Armor rune : since were jungling it would be better if we get armor runes because we can get less damage and with the wrigles lantern we would have a good amount of armor
MR rune : since were gonna have about 50 MR at lvl 18 with no Mr items best thing to do is to get the runes about 20 MR would be usefull at lvl 18
Armor penta : Another armor penta rune the same reason as why i got the red armor penta

Items ( Highly recommended to read )

Mhm Items :D ofcource u guys just skipped to this part of the guide to see the reccomended items and the items xD.

I like to start withand quickly get anow after this i highly prefer for u and ur support or another dps to just go get dragon every time its up 125 gold is really usefull and ofcource after wriggles wat u want to do is just Farm Farm and Farm even more and also gank u need to learn how to last hit minions and most importantly steal enemy buffs and counter jungle . dont gank without ur boot u need those boot before u gank lee sin isnt so fast him self so i dont think u should gank alot .
after u get theandu need to farm up forwith the brutalizer u will do insane damage , have Cd reduction and armor penta, now after u have wriggles lantern , boots and brutalizer u will have good armor good damage and armor penta this will allow u to take on squishies in seconds. now tht was just early game were u needed to farm and be on top of minion kills from you team u need to rushso u can getfrozen mallet is just awesome u will have a good amount of health like about 3k at tht point after frozen mallet u need to getyes i know warmogs this is the item were ppl will oftenly call u a noob for but this aint a noob item for lee sin u guys know were gonna getthen why not get warmogs get 4k hp and 300 atk dmg ull be tanky and a bruiser after this u will probably be dominating and then finish ur boots and head to.


Optional Items



Now i made this section to suite urselves on how u wanna build lee sin and on the case if u feel that ur team is too tanky and u wanna buy another item instead ofoptions :
: Blood thrister is a really good item but wen u buy it what u need to do is farm farm and farm for its passive and not die. this item is good in situations were u need abit more life steal and your playing safe.

Or
: Trinity force ? Huh ? Yes trinity force ! its a really good item the sheen helps alot the phage lets u slow and the zeal gives u atk speed and crit , now wat i really love about this item is that The sheen procs with ur Resonating strikeswhich is ur 'Q'.

Or
: Last wisper is a great choice wen your enemies are tanky and have alot of armor but its only for the tanks its for the squishies if squishies are alrdy squishy with low armour why not make it lower ?


If ur team is full of ad and u need an off tank or tank what u need to is replace Yourwith Options :
: Banshees veil is wen ur enemy has alot of ccs such as if ur versusor When ur enemy has alot of AP and are destroying You.
: Also if ur nto quite sure about that banshies and need something that gives so much more MR then this is ur choice !!

Skill Sequence and Abilities


This is really worth mentioning it might not seem so AWESOME but it really is usefull wen ur jungling/farming giving energy for 2 attacks pretty awesome passive , so wat u shouldnt doo is press all ur abilities and once wat u need to do while jungle is cast a spell 2 hits another spell 2 hits and so on.

This is One of my favorite skills On LoL it has like a ninja teleport to ur enemy xD and u can actualy harras with this i know lee sin harrasing but thts if ur laning u can throw it hit the chamo jump on them and usewhen u just jump they would probably run back cause they think ur gankingg them but there u got about 500 of there health off and there slowed !

This is one of the main skills why lee sin jungles it gives him this kind of survivability wen its maxed and wen ur low lvl it also helps it gives u life steal the lifesteal and spell vamp help at all times wether its ranked once and ur lvl 18 it still helps ! dont under estimate the life steal of this combined with wriggles.

This is another awesome move its an AOE , slow movement speed and slow atk speed this is really a pain in the *** to people like ww his a melee and under lvl 6 he has no jump on u and no cc .

This ult is very usefull and why Lee sin is one of the best gankers and initiaters yes initiaters but lets take an example there team is falling back and the enemy katarina is the last one there and ur allys are behind u , wat u can do in a situation like this is flash infront of katarina and use ur ulti to kick her back and there u got 1 kill and ur enemy wont start a team fight without katarina .


Wat i like to do wen im playing lee sin and im about to gank i useQ again and use doublemove infront of the enemy and kick them back to ur team mates free kill :D

Jungling route


Thx to stonewall008 for this great video

the video above is what i always jungle with but u can also start on blue starting on blue is a little bit difficult for lee sin but just ask a ranged to leash it for u ( Leashing is when a ranged attacks the blue buff and pulls it away while u attack and not take damage )

So wat ur supposed to do is just follow the route but another thing thats important is to take advantage of while jungling so wat u do is useauto attack a few times useatk once and thenauto atk a few times thts all it and u can use ur Q for extra dmg

Unique Skills

As A lee sin Jungler sometimes u move to the enemys jungle and ward or maybe steal a red buff or anything and for example Warwick saw u warding his red buff and rammus comes from top lane dashing on to u wat can u do here ? U can either flash over the baron wall or use something tht has no cd which is placing urWard onto baron and useto jump on it now ur simply safe.

Another thing u can do that i mentioned earlier isinfront of ur enemy and useto knock them back to ur team mates .

Another unique skill u can do if ur laning or anything like tht u can throw urUse ur Jump kick thingy on them and quickly useTo get back to ur team mate.

Tactics to do in ranked games

In ranked games wat i always love to do is gather up my whole team before the minions spawn head to there red buff clean the wraiths out and clean the red buff out and smite it at the end now this tactic was used by team CLG in the Gamescon tournament and it has worked pretty well it just annoys there jungler so much cuz he doesnt have red buff and cuz we didnt kill the side minions so it doesnt come back while after i get to red buff i go normal routine and go to blue buff i always let the ap carry to take it so he can harras more in lanes. After 3 minutes into jungling i always go check there red buff and TBH wen i do it i always see them there its just like random feelings xD i wait till its like 400 smite it and get out of the bush and nuke there jungler and immediatly Blue pill back so i dont get killed by his team mates after wrigles i always take a team mate and quickly get blue buff.
