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.
This is my first guide for my favourite champion in the game right now, Lee Sin. Now in this guide, I'm going to show you the way the play Jungle Lee Sin.
Hi, I'm Proka. I'm from the Garena League of Legends servers, I am making this guide to show you guys how I play Lee Sin, for some who are more advanced than me, maybe you can pick up some new tricks in this guide!
Pros / Cons
- Great ganking
- High damage Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike
- Easy escape with Safe Guard / Iron Will
- Squishy before your Frozen Mallet
- You can't miss your Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike. If you do, ganks become abit harder.
This is what I go for.
I go for 21 / 9 / 0
Taking Summoners Wrath, the extra damage and lifesteal.
On the Defence Tree I go for Summoners Revolve, extra armor and, reduced damage from minions.
You could probably go for a 9 / 21 / 0 if your going to do a pure tank build. But I prefer going down the Offence Tree as you can jungle more faster.
For runes I go for
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
This is my rune page.
1. Greater Mark of Attack Damage
2. Greater Seal of Armor
3. Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
4. Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Probably your asking, why get damage runes? Well, it gives me more damage so I can jungle faster. And just a reminder. Lee Sin can jungle with any kind of rune page you just have to balance the amount of Damage and Armor runes. You can also get Armor Penetration runes if you like, but I prefer the Damage to the Armor Penetration runes.
Now, Lee Sin can start with any of these few items,
Boots are probably the hardest to survive in the jungle, but you can easily gank other lanes, as you can position yourself faster for Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike or Dragon's Rage.
Not as hard as boots, but I don't gank at level 2 with this item.
My favourite pick when I'm jungling with Lee Sin, since it give health, damage and lifesteal.
Best items when jungling with Lee Sin, you can easily take Red Buff at the start of the game.
But don't really like to start with this item because I love to do a gank at level 2.
Now after getting your , you can now grab items like
All these awesome items. Now, why are these items good for Lee Sin.
Warmog's Armor - Well, it's just a good tanking item overall, you can skip your Frozen Mallet if you wanted to, but having both is an extremely good combination.
Force of Nature - Another great item for tanking especially when there is a fed AP. You will have enough Magic resist to get up to his face and burst him down.
The Bloodthirster - An item you must consider, just sell your Doran's Blade for this item, it's a good item overall.
There's a lot more you can get but those are just some examples. Now, let's move on to boots.
Now, boot are very important, and it all depends on the team your facing against and the amount of CC's they have. Here are some boots you can get.
Grab this item when the team that your fighting against is AD heavy.
This item is great when your enemy team is AP or CC heavy, I always get this because I find it very useful. Like, almost every game I have a fed AP, with the combination of Force of Nature and Mercury's Treads you can easily just get up to their faces and kill them.
Now, let's move on to Skill Sequence.
This is just a little diagram on what I level first.
You could also Max Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike
Then max Tempest / Cripple
After all that, Safeguard / Iron Will
Reason why I max my W first, is because I build my Lee Sin as a Tanky DPS.
I pick Flash and Smite.
You wouldn't get anything other than that since your jungling.
These are some optional Spells you can use.
I use this spell so rarely on Lee Sin, but if you do, you can use it to finish of kills.
With this ability, you can position your self for an easy Q or R.
Creeping / Jungling
Now, we move on the jungle
This first jungle path, I'll show you the jungle pattern when you want to do a level 2 gank.
After step 2 ( Look at the Map ) Do a gank and mid or top. If there isn't a gank available, go back and buy potions and take Red, by then you should be able to get a gank off on either of the lanes.
This is the second jungle path, this is what I do when I'm doing the full jungle route.
Start of with a Cloth Armor or Vampiric Scepter. And follow this route.
Role in a Teamfight
You are not an initiator, but if you want to initiate try using Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike on their AD Carries then use your Ultimate to knock them back into the team, if your lucky enough, you might even knock the whole team into the air which gives you time to safe guard / iron will to a team mate. Where you can all burst down their main damager.
Lee Sin is an extremely fun champion to play, the ganks are amazing if you do it right, and he can also Tank with abilities that are high in damage.
Try him out his 6300 IP in the Market. I think his worth it. Maybe you guys will like him. If you didn't like this guide, please take sometime to leave a comment why, and I'll try to resolve the problem.
This has been Proka and I bid you all farewell. Share this to people who are in need of a [[Lee Sin guide, maybe they'll find that this guide is quite good.
Fell free to dislike or like it. Post your games. If you find this guide useful.
