Introduction

Hey Guys, Aspirelight here



This is my first guide on Mobafire and I want to share with you my Lee Sin Top Build, which helped me a lot reaching the Challenger Tier in Season 4 and the Diamond Tear in Season 3.
This guide will give you a overview how to play this champion in the top lane. Many people argue that he is not the best top laner but he fits perfect into the current meta and is really strong in lane. I played him more then 400 times in the last year and if you are abeled to use his full potential you will be able to destroy many opponents and carry your team to victory!


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

The Pros and / or cons are very simple.

When you win your lane you can carry a game very easily but if you get behind its very hard to come back. Lee Sin is very hard to master but if you can unleash his full potential u will own hard. U can escape ganks very easily and zone ur enemys.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes we go for flat AD Marks and Quints for good early game damage because the early game of Lee Sin is f***ing amazing. Flar armor Seals and flat MR Glyphs give u the resistances you need vs the current bruisers.


Guide Top

Masteries

Simple 21/9 Masteries for the DMG. 9 Points in Defense for some HP and Resistances.
The Season 4 Masteries with the Buffs you get from the points in Blade Weaving and Spell Weaving give you nice Buffs and are perfect for Lee Sin since he usees both Basic Attacks and Spells.


Guide Top

Items

As an Assassin we want to go for straight Damage and Sustain. Hydra is the perfect Item for Lee Sin because you can use Tempest + the active of Hydra to nearly Clear a wave of Creeps in one hit and will get tons of life back when u have your W active. Black Cleaver and Last Whisper add the needed armor penetration to eliminate the enemies carries. The last two items should be Defensive if. Just pick up an Randuins/Sunfire or Malmortius.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Maxin W in laning phase gives you the sustain you need to deal with enemys like renekton or nasus. Also you can block cleavers from mundo to denie him in cs.
Anyway you can go for maxing Q if you want to deal tons of damage.
Especially versus Riven and Tryndamere (Champs that deal alot of DMG with basic attacks) I admit to max your Tempes/Cripple to slow their Attack Speed so you can outtrade them.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

Concentrate on csing as good as you can in lane. Farm and Kills are your best friend because they give you the money you need to reach your spike which is in mid game past 6. You can take Jungle Camps easily because you have so much Lifesteal from your items and ur W.


Guide Top

Team Work / Unique Skills

Try to use your kick to either one shot the enemy carries or to kick them into your team so you can easily catch them and kill them. You can use all the Insec moves for it like Wardjump /Kick or Warjump/Flash/Kick.

You can also Shield your allies to Safe their lives!


Guide Top

Conclusion

I hope this guide will bring you a brief overview of Lee Sin as a top laner.
Don't listen to people that say that he is useless. Just try him and you will see that he is a very strong top laner in the current meta.

If you have any questions just add me in League or PM me. (IGN is: Aspirelight)
