Lee Sin Build
Not Updated For Current Season
This is my first guide on Mobafire so I am practicing and I apologize for mistakes or missing things but now let's cometo the hero:
Lee Sin the blind monk. You all might know him. He is one of the strongest heroes in LoL. He has a pretty fast jungling. Is able to gank in lvl 2. Doesn't need any blue buffs so he can give every single blue to his mid, what is pretty helpful in mid and gives the mid a big advantage. In this guide you'll learn how to jungle Lee Sin - with boots.
A lot people might think now that this is totally ridicoulus and will quit the guide. But dont rate the guide before you didnt read it totally. Have fun reading now :)
Okey. Let's begin with the runes. The runes are pretty normal but still a little bit weird Quintessences : 3 x Greater Quintessence of Strength (+2.25 attack damage)Marks : 4 x Greater Mark of Desolation (+1.66 armor penetration); 5 x Greater Mark of Strength (0.95 attack damage)Seals : 9 x Greater Seal of Resilience (+1.41 armor)Glyphs: 9 x Greater Glyph of Celerity (-0.05% cooldowns per level | -0.9% at lvl 18)
As i already said i start withBoots of Speed and 3Health Potions. If you have no problems in the jungle you can go back the first time for yourWriggle's Lantern (if not pick the lifesteal first). Finish theMercury's Treads. Continue the build withTrinity Force (Sheen ->Phage ->Zeal). Depending on your enemies you can decide between alot items. If the enemies have heavy physical damage you should go forThornmail. If they have have heavy magic damage go forForce of Nature.
Here are some items i recommend for you else ( go for the build i showed you on top before and then go for those items:
(Magic Resist)(change what you want as last item for the banshee if you feel like you need it).
(Magic Resist and Armor)() <- here you can decide as last items between those items.
Decide between those items:
Obviously i can't serve with everything here because i don't know which enemies you will face so this is just a recommending and you can work on it and make it better. If you have question i play on EU West my name is LeoPart3.
I have to say sorry here because i don't know where to find the skill sequence image where i can show it to you. So i'll just describe here.
Sonic Wave/Resonating Strike (Q)|Safeguard/ Iron Will (W)|Tempest/ Cripple|Dragon's Rage(R)
2 3 1 6
10 8* 4 11
13 12 5 16
15 14 7
18 17 9
Okey, before you ask yourself why i change maxing Q and W the explanation:
I have 3 way to max out those 2 skills. If the game is easy and you go more offensive than tanky after Trinity (or already decided) you can max out Q after E, but if the game is really hard and you go like very tanky you should max out W after E and if its a normal game where u are neither tanky or aggressive u change between Q and W (btw i prefer W for more survivability).
I recommend following Spells as Lee Sin in the jungle :
the other summoner spells are not recommendable with Lee Sin
You start at the little golems. Let your team pull them and go for a fast gank on the lane with lvl 2 (Q and E perfect for an easy early kill) or go try to kill the enemies jungler at blue if you know that he starts there and just gets away low life there for example Rammus and Gangplank are easy targets there. DO NOT GANK Warwick there! If the enemy starts at Golems or sth try to steal 2 wolves and go further to your Wraiths clean wolves and try to counter again or just clean your golems again. Between this you can gank every lane you want.
Just continue doing the small camps in your jungle or enemy jungle and gank till you decide to go back to get your items. WARNING: To have easy jungle you should NOT try to get a buff without a pull with when you are lower than lvl 4 because boots don't help there at all. I recommend lvl 5 or 6 for the first buffs to be 100% safe and fast.
Pros / Cons of the boots in the jungle
- Fast walk between camps
- Easy counter through bigger escape ability
- Easier ganks
- Better chasing
- Surprising enemy by underestimating ;)
- Weaker in jungle
- A little bit slowlier jungling
- Not able to do buffs easily from lvl 1-4 (I DO recommend lvl 5 or 6 look at the jungling path)
- Cause you have no lifesteal or higher armor you are weak if you get countered by a same hp or even more hp jungler, but you can escape easier thanks to the boots.
That's been the Lee Sin jungling guide by me :) Hope it helps and you had fun reading.
