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.
As a young teen, Lee Sin was intent on becoming a summoner. His will and dedication were unmatched by any of his peers, and his skill drew the attention of Reginald Ashram, the League's High Councilor at the time. While studying at the Arcanum Majoris, Lee Sin became frustrated with instruction paced for the other students. He spent his free time researching the nuances of summoning in hopes of graduating sooner. He made amazing advances in his arcane studies, surpassing all other students. By all indications, he would have become one of the League's greatest summoners were it not for one terrible mistake. Too impatient, he attempted to test his ability by summoning a beast from the Plague Jungles. What he summoned instead was a young boy, but not in one piece. He barely had time to look the boy in what was once his face before the jumbled human mass fell lifeless to the floor. A League investigation later revealed that the boy's entire village was obliterated by feedback from the ritual.
Lee Sin's talents were so promising that the League was willing to overlook the incident, but he could never forgive himself. He left the Institute and journeyed to the Shojin Monastery for eternal repentance, swearing never to practice magic again. Years later, hoping to atone for his crime with martyrdom, he set himself ablaze as a protest of the Noxian occupation of Ionia. He remained alive in this state, enduring searing agony for weeks. His actions paved the way for a League match wherein Ionia prevailed, but by the time he was doused, his eyes had been burned completely from their sockets. Hailed as a savior, he was reborn, and his will to act invigorated. He joined the League of Legends to continue his atonement with sweat and blood, a true monk's only possessions.
''The actions of one may sunder the world, but the efforts of many may rebuild it.'' - Lee Sin
Lee sin is one of the most fun champions in League of Legends.
With skillshots you annoy enemy players and have a lot of joy in the game.
Most people tent to underestimate Lee Sin because they think he is useless in the late game.
But with this built you will really have fun,i own even guys like Dr.Mundo,Nasus and Volibear
with this built,so i hope it will help you.
Well the key is that you get Armor penetration.
Thats why my Big runes reserved for this sort of quintess.
I dont really buy Magic Resist stuff,(although sometimes even i have too) thats why i get MR-Resist per level to make sure that i have a bit magicresist.
And attackspeed runes are nice ,so later you can avoid buying too much stuff that give you attackspeed.
Take the best of offensive skills with a bit of defensiv skills.
Well try to maximize your q first. It is a nice shot and very annoying for enemies.
Of course you need a bit practise but i am sure the most people can handle this.
But to be honest my favourite spell is the w spell called:Safeguard / Iron Will
thx to this spell you get a nice ammount of lifesteal when you activate it for the 2nd time.
With the blood thirster and the life of warmogs i do Baron solo.
I recommend Ignite and Flash for the damage and escape/chasing mechanism.
You also can take exhaust,ghost or if you have problems with defending or farming or you need to do some backdoor cause your team cant destroy anything then teleport is not bad.
but maybe you experienced other spells which you like.
Just one spell is worst ever for Lee Sin: clearity so if you take it you will be the joke of the entire map.
Pros / Cons
Pro : High mobility
With this built nice damage even at tanks
Lee sin is fun and as cool as Bruce lee
A good support too thx to his w spell
He can knock back enemies with ulti
Great jungler,roamer best ganks ever
Con: Guys who have problems with skillshots should not play him
If you miss skillshots you instantly are flamed as Noob
Creeping / Jungling
When you play as top and slay your enemy make sure that you sometimes take the enemys blue or wolves but leave the little ones so that it takes a bit more until the creeps come back.
This wil annoy them a lot.
And always communicate with your teammates.
Call for a gank.
Make sure that you have enough heal pots to recover life.
At the beginning i save my Q spell.
Dont use it for minions else your energie level is too low for your attacks.
But i use E for the minions but only once.
In the first levels your energy saving is important.
And then when you powerful enough you strike so hard back.
Last hits,dont forget them.
i hope i could help you.
I am not quit skilled with pictures and i hope that a friend will help me a bit but i think the tipps should help you to be a better solo top Lee sin player.
Have fun with it and now BÄM.
