Welcome to my Lee Sin Guide!

Hey Guys! I'm Xentec and Lee sin has been my favourite Champ since a long time. I've played at lot games with him over the years. I would like to help some people with this guide, who arent't familiar playing Lee Sin. Please give me a message or add me in game. Thank you guys and i hope you enjoy my little guide!

In my opinion Lee Sin is a great jungler, and he's a lot of fun to play. Especially the moves and tricks you are able to do with this champion are amazing.
The most known trick on Lee Sin is the "InSec", which probably most of you will already know. And above all, thank you for taking the time reading my Lee Sin Guide.

Pros & Cons

Why Lee Sin?


+ Good sustain
+ Jungle bully / High damage
+ Powerful ganks
+ Good clear time
+ Very flexible
+ Quite good CC ( Cripple, Dragon's Rage)


- Skill shots
- High skill cap
- If behind -> not as good
- His late game is quite weak

Which runes?

This Mark is a must have for Lee Sin. Its very standard for a strong jungle clear and you are able to do more damage with these marks. This mark gives your and a lot more damage, so this mark is really essential.

Well in my opinion this seal is better on Lee Sin because the jungle in season 5 is not as easy as in season 4. So, I think you need more armor and bit of health to get through that new jungle more easy. I chose the seals of health because they actually scale pritty good and they replace the Greater Seal of Armor really well.

I chose the Glyph of Armor on Lee Sin instead of the Glyph of Magic Resist because you actually dont need magic resist that early ingame. If you need magic resist than buy it. Its more important,in my opinion, to take more armor for the jungle. And you haven't got the money to buy armor in the early game phase.

Just the same as before: This Mark is a must have for Lee Sin. Its very standard for a strong jungle clear and you are able to do a lot more damage with these marks. This mark gives your and a lot more damage, so this mark is really essential.

This Quintessence is simply just a bit more armor for smoother jungling and the replacer of the third Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage. It allows you to stay longer in the jungle and to have a better armor ration for the late game. And thats way better on Lee Sin because full AD Lee Sin sucks!

Which Masteries?


The masteries are split up into: 21 | 0 | 9

Offense Tree
I do pick up 3 points into the right side of the masteries . Executioner allows me to INCREASE my damage output against lower health enemies which is pretty much everything you do in ganks.
Expose Waekness, Blade Weaving, Spell Weaving Allow me to push up Lee Sin's damage as well as enhancing his allies ability to do damage upon a gank. This really enables Lee Sin to maximize his usefulness in the early game. Utility is just not worth it in the S5 jungle. The mobs are MUCH stronger then they used to be, utility will force you to do an early recall and really damage your jungle potential. Executioner

Summoner Spell's

Smite is a must have for jungling. It deals true damage to monsters and minions, which you need for your jungle clearing and your Smite rewards. You can also Smite things like: Tibbers, Heimerdinger's H-28G Evolution Turret & even Shaco's Jack in the Box.

This is just the most important summoner spell in game. It allows you to escape faster and it gives you the abillity to make some plays like the Flash -> InSec.

Ignite deals true damage to champion over a certain amout of time. It also allows you to get kills more easily and this may be useful against champions like Volibear because its very good to destroy his passive.

Item Explanation



Item Sequence

Stalker's Blade - Warrior

Mercury's Treads

The Black Cleaver

Randuin's Omen

Banshee's Veil

Dead Man's Plate

This item is really good! The Stalker's Blade lets your smite be able to help you gank. It gives you an extra slow which is a good combination with your . It even does a bit of damage to enemy champions. Well, but this item falls of late game very hard, because its damage isnt noticeable anymore. So this item is for the early -> mid game. If you dont want to use this item then i would recommend you to get this item: Ranger's Trailblazer. With Ranger's Trailblazer. the jungling becomes even easier because of its cool passive. (Smite deals half damage to all monsters and enemy minions near the target and stuns them for 1.5 seconds. Casting Smite on a monster restores 15% of missing Health and Mana.)

This item is necessary on Lee Sin. It gives you a good amount of armor and health. It slows attack speed and the active in it isn't bad either. In an area around you it slows the enemies, so you can use it to run, or chase. Either you could replace Randuin's Omen with Sunfire Cape or you could buy it aswell against a heavy AD team. Sunfire Cape is useful for clearing your jungle faster and for a bit AoE damage.

This item is really useful on Lee Sin. You get free wards which every time you go back to base stock up again. With this you can easily ward jump nealry every time, you can ward jump to escape or InSec people and it gives you sight around. On top of this you also get some extra life!

This item may no be the best to get but its quite useful in the early to gank & chase enemies. In the late or maybe if your behind you should get either this: Ninja Tabi,or this: Mercury's Treads

This is a powerful item. It gives you life steal, AoE damage for a good wave clear and an active which deals some good damage. Get this, or the other AD items only if you and your team a ahead! Remember, Lee Sin falls of late game so dont buy as much AD. I would rather recommend to get Maw of Malmortius because it gives you a quite good damage, some Magic Resist and a usefull passive. If you dont want neither of those you can also get Last Whisper ,or Trinity Force.

I would only recommend this item as the final one, in late game. If you dont want this item, because you think Maw of Malmortius is Magic Resist enough then get a Spirit Visage because it gives you more lifesteal and good health stats, or you could get a Warmog's Armor, or just get another Armour Item.

Skill Order Explanation

Ability Sequence Order

> > >
We want to max our Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike first because the damage it does is really good! And if we max it then we have a lower cooldown, so we can use it more often.
After maxing our Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike we max our Safeguard / Iron Will because it has an awesome shield which you can save your team mates with and second, it gives you lifesteal and spellvamp.
At last, we will max our Tempest / Cripple because the damage or the slow are not good enough for the mid game.

Green = Stealth Ward
Pink = Pink Ward

How to be useful in late game

If you are good with Lee Sin you can do a Ward Jump + your ultimate (InSec) you will allways be useful.
Use your high mobility and your ultimate to peel for your own carry or bring the enemy carry in danger.

How to use abilities & combos


In the Jungle

In the jungle you should always make 2 autoattacks before casting your next spell
to use your passive ( Flurry) as efficient as possible.
You shouldn't forget that your Resonating Strike is an execute. So, deal as much damage as possible before activating it aagin. You can use this for securing jungle camps, Dragon or Baron if you use the combination of Sonic Wave, Smite and then your Resonating Strike.

If you use your Smite in combination with Iron Will, you'll gain some more hp back.
