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.
Hey, this build focuses on both of Sin's capabilities, Laner Sin and Jungle Sin. Enjoy.
Lane or Jungle?
Only go jungle if you do not have an effective 'game changing' jungler for example Amumu, one of the best ultimate in the game and extremely jungling capable. Or someone like Nunu, His ganks are what decide the game. But unless you dont have any of these 2 junglers, take jungle spot.
[Greater Mark of Desolation] - Some people say the Taric killer. I take it just for the pen.
[Greater Seal of Resilience] - You are an offtank, not an all out DPS.
[Greater Glyph of Warding] - ^^ effective against those Malzahar's ultis.
[Greater Quintessence of Desolation] - Stacks well with your Mark.
[Greater Quintessence of Fortitude] - Extra HP makes for great Poison / Malefic Visions escapes.
I go 21/0/9 for the added damage because Sin isnt too effective with damage early game, he is extremely squishy until you get your Giant's belt.
Ignite goes well with your ultimate, use it right before you activate it.
Flash for the ward jump and flash escapes, you could take ghost but it depends on your playstyle.
Take Clairvoyance if you havent got one, Remember you are an offtank, you're a secondary tank, its your job.
[Flurry] - When pushing towers activate W and dont go for it again after you hit one time, that extra hit can down a tower.
[Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike] - For initiating and chasing the squishy carrys.
[Safeguard / Iron Will] - If you've played udyr, this is pretty much turtle.
[Tempest / Cripple] - Your [Xin Zhao] and [Master Yi] destroyer.
[Dragon's Rage] - Effective when used with ignite. This is a 100% kill and very short CD.
Tips and Playstyle
Carry a couple wards in your inventory, put one over a wall and Safeguard over to it. A flash that costs 75 Gold and a 3 second CD, dont underestimate this tip.
You want to play safely early and harras your opposition with your Q until you hit level 4, then you turn into Hulk Mode!
Use Safeguard on allies running from enemies then just E the chasers and kill them.
Do not double tap E when farming / jungling, it doesnt do damage so you would just waste 30 Energy for no lifesteal with your W.
Q is one of your main damage sources, use it whenever you can.
R is the one that can save you from team fights. Not only does it knock the enemy back, it also knocks all enemy units into the air hit by it.
Your jungle route goes.
Wolves > Wraiths > Double Golems > Gank / Recall > Blue.
Repeat that but instead of getting blue get Red.
And dont forget to clean your enemy jungle when their jungler is not jungling.
