Lee Sin Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello guys, I'm Buckhum and this is my first guide. And first thing you need to know is that I'm not good with English so please don't judge my grammar! Lee Sin is my main in Season 3 but I don't play him that much in this season. But I'm still a great Lee Sin player and I'll tell you anything you want to know!

Creeping / Jungling
For jungling, if you have a weak-early game jungler on your enemy's team so try to counter jungle. Here's your route.
- Head straight for red
Ok, now it depends if the enemy jungler has a good clear time or bad clear time. If they had a bad clear time, you can just steal it. But if they had a good clear time, try to wait and let the enemy getting damaged from the lizard elder. Smite it or kill them.
For normal jungling, here's your route
- Golems (if your lanes are pushed)
When you are top lane, you should harass your opponent a lot with Q and W combo. Hit your Q on the opponent, kick the enemy on the head and safeguard to the nearest minion quickly. But if you have opponent like Renekton and Darius, try not to do this combo much because they can just stun you and burst you down.
And this is what you guys are all waiting for, the execute combo. W-Q-E-Auto Attack-R. If you have minions infront of you, use this combo, safeguard to the nearest minion, kick the enemy, slow them down with your E, keep auto-attacking until they are low enough to kick their heads off. But if they are so tanky, when they are low enough, kick them and ignite for a clean secure kill.
But if you don't have minions? Buy sight wards and place them infront of you and execute with the combo. But if you're diving the enemy? Try landing your Q and burst them down with all of your skills.
For ganking, your combo is W-Q-R-E or safeguard to a ward/minion/allies, Q it but don't kick yet until you use your Dragon's Rage to kick the enemy back to your allies and finally kick them with your Q. Slow them down with your E and let your allies take the kills. Because you're a nice jungler.
In Team Fight, your job as Lee Sin is to initiate the fight, try landing your Q on anyone on the enemy's team and kick their AD-Carry back so the enemy team won't have their 5th person to fight. So your combo is Q-R-W-E!
Here are the examples of pro players playing Lee Sin, Shakedrizzle and some guy called Xdieu.
