Lee Sin - The Blind Monk
I think Lee Sin can be played many ways. But I bought him almost instantly and played him as a DPS. I loved it. This guide will show you how to build the perfect DPS. It ends up with over 4000+ health, with tons of AD and some AS. It shines all game.
I think these are the perfect runes. Armor penetration for the people who build tons of armor against you. Magic resist so both his armor and magic resist are very high late game. Health per level, because it stacks very well with Atma's and increases survivability. Last but definitely not least, health Regen because early game it will max out your survivability.
Defense so you can stay in those big team fights longer. The offense masteries are just my choice and so are the summoner spells. I built offense for the increased attack speed and the ignite and exhaust buffs. Otherwise there's not much to say about the masteries.
This item build (if you're doing well)should be done at lvl 18. Start off with doran's shield for the health and to help you survive early. If you're good you should probably get first blood or the assist so that even before minions spawn you can recall and buy vampiric scepter. That lifesteal will make you not have to recall until you can buy phage. So play in the lane smart until then. When you have enough gold, buy phage or even Frozen Mallet if you have enough. It gives you health, AD, and Slows your enemies on hit making them unable to get away unless they have flash. But that's what ignite is for ;) Build the Vampiric scepter into the blood thirster and sell doran's shield if you need to. Then build into mercury treads because at this point you probably really need the movement speed and magic resist is always nice. But it can be subbed out with Berserker's if you feel that is better. Go into Warmog's so you will probably not die after that point. Hextech gunblade because all around, it is the best thing at the time. Atma's to put the icing on the cake and just dominate. It's passive is awesome plus the armor is great.
I don't think the skill sequence is right but basically i want W maxed out first because you should be using it a lot. Early game it is sweet! It gives you Armor, life steal, spell-vamp, and the added health from the shield. I made a self-cast quick key. I double tap it every time i go into battle. His Ult is amazing especially early game. Just q someone with low health and go right to them. Hopefully you're in front of them and kick them backwards. Like tristanna lol. Late game it ends up doing 700-800 dmg which is pretty good. Just use ur skills wisely and W to your teammate if they are going to die. Also, one more thing about W: If you're at full health and use W and then again for iron will, it will give you the lifesteal and spell-vamp but when you attack it will heal your shield not you because you are at max health. Great for killing minion waves by urself.
Summoner spells are really your choice but i like going with my classic Ignite/Exhaust. It's the most annoying thing when at lvl 1, the enemy slips to their turret with only a bar of health left. Ignite fixes that. For the early gank, you just use exhaust so they won't get away. And so even if they try to fight back they will be ****. Making sure you get that first blood.
All in all, I think that Lee Sin has some real potential and that he is one of the best DPS around. Good luck playing him, play smart, play well. Comment and Rate :) I like suggestions!
