Pros / Cons
Early ganks in game
great with team fights
Team Death Janitor
Tends to be focused
can get behind on money if you cant last hit
This build is for a carry Lee Sin and fast DPS. Lee Sin is deaths janitor. I cannot stress enough that Lee is a ASSASSIN he does not initiate nor does he charge directly in with the group. Lee does support and team clean up. He is far to squishy to just run in at the beginning of a team fight. This build has been excellent if your team knows what they are doing with CC and in team fights. That being said this build will help you dominate the other team and have them running from you.
Runes are very forward and to the point. He is a melee DPS so he is going to need the armor penetration and the dodge. I have played around with the glyphs between Furor and Focus I found both help so it depends on what you want for runes. Same goes with the Quintessences, however you need to stack them don't split them down the middle so you have both, it will only hinder you.
This is very important. Lee is basically a 7 skill guy. You must PAY ATTENTION to your energy! with out it Lee is useless. Before you begin to poke and push lane you need to be at least lvl 2 and here is why. Lee is a annoying laner he is hard to kill and early game he rapes health from opponents. Usingto initiate a enemy Lee dashes in and pokes for health. Now the lvl 2 is important becasue once you haveyou can return to safety by using safeguard. It also helps to be in a lane with a good team mate who you can effectively jump to, if not a minion will do fine as well but are not always as reliable. Lvl three you are ready for a gank. Choose your target immediately double tapto give yourself a armor and attack buff,to your target,this will slow after double tap and you should have made a kill either by yourself or with a teammate.
At higher level depending on your current lane situation dont pass up oppertunites to grab money Lees build is not cheap and will need some gold to complete it. If you have a jungler however stay out of the way for them. I suggest last hitting on minions and usingto push enemy laners back so you can reap the gold reward.
Items are very basic as well. in the beginning I suggest Dorans blade or shield you need to choose based on your play style and who you will be laning against. Your probably woundering about wriggles lantern aside from the lifesteal This little gem is a Lee saver. In a team fight before initiating drop this bad boy off some were you know you can escape to incase the fight goes south. you can effectivalyto the ward and run your happy Lee *** out of danger. I dont suggest putting it in a lane as creeps tend to get in the way, off to the side or in a bush is preffered. Another way if leaving a battle is toon a enemy minion but this is last resort as if at low health the last thing you want to do is get killed by a minion.
Lee Sin is a badass in team fights, he buffs for armor and attack. Be sure tothe tank before a fight and any of your dieing teammates who are trying to leave the battle. Lee is the anti Kat as well. you can useto boot her out of the fight when she ults making it useless. It is also good for CC and when your team needs to leave a team fight. If you get the chance to during a team fight this skill can be used to score a Double, Triple, etc kill if the enemy is lined up correctly for it. Other then that it is great disruptive CC.
Lee sin is great in a 1v1 kite and fight as well, giving yourself ample opportunity to recharge your energy in a kite will help you win. be sure to always know your surrounding Lee can easily escape a 2v1 situation but i do not suggest a 2v1 fight.
Lee Sin to the fight
Once you have completed most of the build Lee becomes a heavy DPS, even able to take turrets with his armor buff. Make sure you and your team know the focus order so your not being stuck in a fight with a 5v1 situation. I can not stress enough the importance of a team. Lee is only at his peak if the team you are with is at theirs. Once in a battle space your abilities and avoid mashing and spamming skills until your energy drained. make sure your passive procs to recover energy, you should space it such: Skill, auto attack, auto attack, skill, this will insure energy renewal in a fight so your not spent and useless. Dont forget to drop your Wriggle ward before entering a fight as this will save you in countless battles. If you follow this guide and dont over extend I assure you will have a great game and a wonderful champion who lays down the law. There is no Lee in Team.
I hope this build helps you win some games it has helped me. Please leave your comments, rage, and other internet hate mail below. See you in LoL.
