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.
Hi, I am going to present you here my build for Lee Sin, the blind monk.
I am anxious first of all to apologize, but English is not my native language, thus I realized this guide with Google Trad, but it can stay many errors, thus forgive I for it.
I began League Of Legends after the arrival of Nocture, and before Lee Sin. This character did not interest me at the beginning, and my first mains were Annie, Lux, Twisted Fate and Urgot.
However I was bored of these characters, and I looked for a character who would have an unique gameplay. I was thus interested by Lee Sin, and wondered " but why is this character so little played? " Finally, he became my main, and my favorite character. Today, he is also one of the most played characters in League Of Legends.
I useandto make more damages at the beginning, and for jungle more quickly.
allow me to be more resistant in the jungle, andto be more resistant during my gank.
However, if you want to be more safe, you can take.
Personally, I think that the masteries are a joke, so the contributions are weak in game.
However many points can be interesting, but if you think that other points would be better, follow your instinct.
I chose the offensive tree because Lee Sin makes physical damages, but you can if you wish it to put points in the defensive tree. Lee Sin's main problem is indeed his resistances rather weak without a defensive equipment.
In the offensive tree, I took the point of Archaic Knowledge because hisandare magic damages. The point is also interesting for, what allows to end jungle more quickly.
Finally, in the utility tree, the increase of gained experience will allow you to be at the same level with your teammates.
You begin by taking aand 5. Lee Sin's advantage is that he can stay a very long time in the jungle without back. Thus take your time, and back only when you can buy, and evenif possible.
You have many choices for the boots :
-, which are very good on Lee Sin: he is a melee character, resisting enough, and thus must be able to be the least sensitive possible.
-, if the team opposite possesses too many physical damages
-, which will make you more sensitive but which will reduce your cooldowns.
Afterward you will have to buyand. These items are expensive, but they will return you immortal in mid-game.
You will take afterward, by beginning with, which is just excellent for Lee Sin's passive.
Finally, if you have time, you will complete your equipment by.
To begin the jungle, you will set first of allof Lee Sin.
However if you feel a teamfight in the level 1, set, which will allow you to slow down the enemies and their attack speed. Then ask to your allies for pull monsters to rise to the level 2 more easily.
At the level 3, I sets, and at the level 4.
From there, you have to setas fast as possible. Take obviously your ultimateas soon as possible.
See if you prefer to setorfirst.is devastating in teamfight for the enemies, butwill assure you a better survival, to you and your teammates. It belongs to you to see.
Lee Sin can start where he want.
He can start with blue, even without pull, but you need to be carefully of counter-jungle ennemy.
My jungle road is :
Wolves > Wraith (Smite the big blue) > Golems > Blue (Smite) > Wolves > Red > Wraith > Golem...
With this road, you can stay in jungle for a very long time.
I gank as soon as possible, but it is more easy when you get red buff and ultimate.
Your role in Teamfight
First of all, let your tank engage, then use youron the ennemy carry. Don't forget, if you can, let 2 auto attack between each abilities, for Lee Sin passive.
When you dash on the carry, use immediatly your, to slow the ennemy team. Then, go behind the carry and use your ultimate for bump him on his teammate.
Use carefully your, for protect yourself or dash on an ally.
Finally, use yourto chase survivors.
You will have understood it, your role is to create havoc in the teamfight.
is a must-have for jungle. Even if it is possible to jungle without Smite, it means "Come on guys, and steal our buff/Nashor/Drake"
Let your AP take Ignite and your carry take Exhaust. It is useless for you because when you will touch the enemy, he cannot run away any more.
Take, and use to get through obstacles. Even if you can dash on your allies, it is necessary to be careful.
