Intro

Lee Sin is a very fun champ to play; with a unique ability system, he's the only one with 7 abilities. The two abilities per ability combined with his passive (Flurry: Every time Lee Sin uses an ability, his attack speed is increased by 50% for two attacks) and safeguard's second ability Iron will makes Lee Sin an excellent jungler, allowing him to go a sustained route from the start, then pretty much wherever you want.

Jungling

In my opinion, laning Lee Sin isn't nearly as strong as his jungle.

-Start with a vamp scepter
-Start at wolves
-Move to wraiths, smite the blue one and kill the rest
-Double golems, then back for boots and potions
-From here you should be ganking, grabbing jungles on the way

IF TOP NEEDS A GANK:
-Grab Red buff first
-Grab wraiths, head up river to gank
-After ganking, grab blue if you can

IF BOTTOM NEEDS A GANK:
-Grab Red
-Gank
-Have them help you get dragon, if you all can

IF MID NEEDS A GANK:
-Red
-Wraiths
-If you can, try and get someone from your double lane to help
-Gank (duh)




Also: all you jungler should be asking: WHEN CAN HE GET DRAGON?
Lee Sin can easily get dragon around level 6, or whenever you get your Wriggles, and Berserker's Greaves

Teamfights

Lee Sin should make an entrance to a team fight right after it starts; Sonic wave into it from a brush, and use Tempest and Cripple to slow them all.

Also; use Dragon's Rage to knock either their main damage dealer, or even their tank through their team, knocking them up and putting their damage dealer or taker out for a bit

"Seeing Eye Dog"? BUT HE'S BLIND?!?!

Sonic Wave and Tempest reveal units. This is amazingly convenient is the opposing team has a Twitch, Evelynn, or even both D:. Just smash tempest, and you just might find a rat laying there, terrified of the blind menace.

Item Choices

-Wriggles: Lee Sin is a jungler; most jungler's get wriggles
-Berserker's Greaves: Lee Sin's passive gives him attack speed, so do these boots! (Merc treads are a possibility if you REALLY need them, but if possible, I do recommended 'zerkers)
-Brutalizer: Being an energy champ, cooldowns are really the only thing stopping him, especially with Flurry's energy regain. Also, I don't really use the upgraded version
-Triforce:
-Phage: Lee Sin attacks fast, so the chance to slow shows often, and the health is nice
-Zeal: MOAR ATTACK SPEED PLZ
-Sheen: This is nice just for the double damage attack after all the abilities Lee Sin uses
-Guardian Angel: Really the only defensive item he needs, and with proper teamwork, if you're trapped after "death", you can safeguard to an ally over a wall
-Last Whisper: Armor Pen on an AD champ? Need I say more?

(Optional to sell wriggles and get these)
-Hextech Gunblade: Lifesteal, and Spellvamp are good on Lee Sin. Its like always having Iron Will on! The only thing I dont like about getting a gunblade, is it sacrifices the free ward from Wriggles
-Madred's Bloodrazor: I only recommend this if their team has a lot of health


Guide Top

Possible Bugs

-No Flurry on safeguard sometimes
-"Double Tempest" This often happens accidentally, but alot of people use the bug to do way more damage than he should.

Nothing else that I've seen, but since he's a relatively new champ, I'm sure Riot will fix it, because I know Morello knows about the double tempest

Conclusion

Lee Sin may not be the best AD champ, but in the right hands, can be a rape train of destruction. Even if you don't go legendary, everyone I know says he's the most fun champ to play, and I completely agree. His ult is great for teamfights, and skirmishes. His jungle is amazing, and his ganks are pretty awesome too. I hope you have alot of fun playing him, and I hope you found this guide useful on your way to mastering the "Blind" Monk
