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.
Lee Sin is an amazing champion and can be used in many ways. He works well as a tank, and a jungler and a fighter! In this build, I demonstrate three builds: Tank, Fighter and a general (usual) build for Lee Sin (a mix of fighter and survival when ganking). He can pop in and out of fights, harass easily, and when jungling, he can build up good amounts of XP with high attack damage, as well as gather up lots of gold to buy highly-priced items, such as Trinity Force.
Before you start, you will need to think of the following points:
1. Farming! Get lots of gold by killing as many minions as you can, remembering to diving in and out to harrass/take out the enemy champions. Take frequent visits to jungle monsters to gather a good amount of gold, take both buffs if you wish. Take Dragon as well to get gold which will eventually let you buy pricey items, because you are Lee Sin, the Blind Monk.
2. Know your enemy! This is VERY important, because if you did not know your enemy's skills, weaknesses, strengths, items, stats, and other things, you will not dominate your enemy so easily. Lee Sin is a hard target, so remember your "ss" signals given by other teammates. They will probably go for you if you have a good kill streak going!
3. Understand Lee Sin! Lee Sin is extremely tricky to use, therefore you need to think of your strategies and moves very carefully. Be cautious because if you dive for an enemy without knowing they have an escape plan, or if you die by turret, then you'll lose valuable time.
4. Have teamwork and team-fight skills! Take care when you are solo-ing lane. I know people tend to go for the weaker, singular ones in a lane. You will obviously know they're coming for you, otherwise someone'll say "ss" to warn you and your team. Without teamwork, you will not win.
THE BUILDS GO IN THIS ORDER: General (normal) Build, Fighter Build, Tank Build.
IN BUILD ORDER:
Lee Sin - General (normal) Build:
Mercury's Treads, Trinity Force, Wriggle's Lantern, Warmog's Armor, Atma's Impaler and The Black Cleaver are my choice of items for Lee Sin, good amount of damage, good amount of health for survival. The choice is yours, not mine. This provides you with a really good amount of stats while fighting in a generally normal gank.
Lee Sin - Tank:
Mercury's Treads, Trinity Force, Warmog's Armor, Frozen Mallet, Sunfire Cape, Atma's Impaler are my choice of items for this build. This provides Lee Sin with great survivability and will be useful for assisting in ganks. Remember, you can sell any one of these items and have whatever you like.
Lee Sin - Fighter:
Boots of Swiftness, Trinity Force, Zeke's Harbinger, Randuin's Omen, The Black Cleaver and The Bloodthirster. Some nice attack damage and nice attack speed, with mobility to keep you going and some health + armour + lifesteal to keep you going. I don't recommend this build for every match but if your team is going well, you should (maybe) try this out. REMEMBER, sell any of these items for whatever you want.
