Shaco Very Fragile. Use your e, q and pinks to keep vision on him. You can match his early game pressure and do more.

Hi Everyone!

Please dont dislike guide simply because my build is different; it's probably the only unique legit Lee Sin build on mobafire :). Btw care to check out my Fizz guide?

Guide objective: Give an opinion on which build is better (my build or the popular build), learn how to clear camps, gank, teamfight, establish dragon control, ward hop cleanly and make flashy plays.

This is my first guide on mobafire btw. My summoner name on the NA server is "Best Fizz Ja" and I'm currently in GoldV. I am a 16 year old Jamaican mid laner with aspirations of becoming a professional league of legends player. I main Fizz in the mid lane and Lee Sin in the jungle. My win ratio on Lee Sin isn't that impressive, in fact it's horrible.

After watching Professor Milk's videos I have been practicing a lot of theory crafting and decided to make this guide to show the public my unique way of playing a unique champ because i believe this build could revolutionize how Lee Sin is played. Constructive criticism is always welcome and feel free to PM me.

Now let's get started.

Introduction to Lee Sin

Lee Sin has high damage, built in lifesteal/spellvamp, high mobility, uses energy as resource bar, has an attack speed steroid and lots of outplay potential because of his kit. With this build we will give our favorite blind monk more wave clear, damage and tankiness than the average build.

Lee Sin is a melee champion normally played in the jungle and sometimes in the top and mid lane. He has:

Pro's and Con's of Lee Sin


+ Mobile
+ Built in lifesteal
+ High Damage
+ Outplay potential
His Resonating Strike, Safeguard and The Black Cleaver help with his movement. Iron Will grants Lifesteal and Spell Vamp. High base damage. With the use of his kit you will be able to make many outplays ^.^


+ Low margin for error
+ Hard to Master
+ Falls Off
+ Bork Counters build
Lee cannot 1v1 a devourer jungler if they are both even in gold. Very high skill cap champ. Late game falls off;not that severe with this build, Blade of the Ruined King/ Liandry's Torment shreds his health stacking =/

For the Early Game

After talking with my friend's list and reading my guide's comments I've decided you know what you can't just prepare for the late game you have to build for the early game to try and faceroll the enemy. I have been told that the build's late game is good but it's early game is horrible. If only there was a way to get a good early and late game. Wait there is!!!

The Solution

Tracker's Knife - Warrior and Ravenous Hydra gives allot of early game pressure but leaves you very squishy. When ever you feel like "Ok I'm too squishy and I need some defenses" trade out Tracker's Knife - Warrior for Tracker's Knife - Cinderhulk for 788 gold and trade Ravenous Hydra for Titanic Hydra for free!!! If you are doing fine with the AD stacking then don't switch them out. If this isn't the solution I don't know what is. It's a 788 gold solution that gives late game security.

Late Game Stats

My Build

Attack Damage
Armor Pen
Attack Speed
Magic Resist
Mov. Speed
4336 + 2600 (The extra 2600 are from sterak's gage and guardian angel)
0 Flat 0% (30% AoE armor reduction that benefits entire team) team)
30% for spells 25% for flash

Titanic Hydra + Black Cleaver=AoE armor shread. Jungle Item gives a slow and an AoE burn. 1300 hp shield from Sterak's Gage. 1300 hp revive from Guardian Angel. 45 damage on hit, 101 damage in a cone from each auto and 407 physical damage item active all from Titanic Hydra. Sacrifices high early game pressure for medium early game pressure and a better late game.

Popular Build

Attack Damage
Armor Pen
Attack Speed
Magic Resist
Mov. Speed
0 Flat 6%

2 slows from Jungle item and Randuin's Omen. Maximum early game pressure. 2nd Life. 15% life steal. 20% increased regen. AoE active that does 276 maximum.


Use my build for AoE armor shred that benefits your whole team, double the health compared to the other build, a 1300 shield, more spell spamming, 2 refillable wards and a 400 physical damage active.

Use the other build for half the health of my build, 276 maximum damage item active, more regen, 15% life steal and 2 slow item active.

Both builds have chilling smite, equal attack damage and a 2nd life.

How to Clear Camps

Jungle Route I Recommend

  • Starting at Krugs (Get leash,Smite instantly)
  • Pop Refillable Potion
  • Then Red Buff
  • Then Raptors
  • Finish camps on blue side wolves>blue>gromp or
  • Recall (Buy Tracker's Knife)
  • Look for Gank (Gank lanes that are close to the camps that are up)
  • Gromp
  • Blue (Don't Smite)
  • Wolves (Don't Smite unless you suspect an invade)
  • Recall (Or clear camps that are up or look for gank)

How to Clear Camps


  • Ignore whatever ability or item you don't have access to in the above
  • Use W Safeguard whenever up
  • Quickly use your ability after the auto attack
  • After using an ability try to auto twice to benefit from Flurry
  • Use your smite when Iron Will is active because it will heal you

Guide Top

How to Gank

The Ideal Gank

  • Approach the enemy laner from behind or the side
  • Place ward behind enemy laner as close as possible
  • Safeguard to the ward
  • Use your Dragon's Rage to kick enemy laner to your teammate
  • Use your Sonic Wave if the enemy has an escape or flash up dont Resonating Strike right away use it at the last possible moment this comes with experience
  • Use spells and auto attack until the enemy is dead

Gank When

  • The enemy is overextended
  • Enemy's flash is down
  • High kill potential on enemy
  • Teammates have CC
  • Enemy is immobile
  • Enemy is raging

Never Gank When

  • Enemy is so fed that he can 1v2
  • Teammate is feeding
  • You are behind

This video will help you if you're a visual learner

How to Assassinate a Carry

The newest and probably my most favorite chapter in this guide. Cinderhulk is normally associated with low damage tank, but I can assure you with this build you can assassinate the enemy adc or another low health carry with ease. Just as long as they aren't as mobile as Fizz or as dangerous as Vayne. Btw don't mess with Vayne or any super fed carry as a matter of fact.

Guidelines when going for a 1v1

Guide Top

How to Teamfight

The Ideal Teamfight

If you're carry is fed

  • Stay on the frontline
  • Wait for your teammates to engage or the enemy to engage
  • Don't fly ahead of your team with Resonating Strike
  • If an assassin or someone with CC jumps onto your carry use Dragon's Rage
  • Try to kick the person into his team and make a pinball effect

This video will give you the rundown

Objective Control and You

Always try to get a dragon as early as possible. If you begin losing drastically and you have the first dragon buff the enemy team won't get the 5th dragon buff until probably 45 minutes in. Getting the 5th dragon is a win condition in league. This means no matter how behind you are if you have the 5th dragon buff you're chance of winning has gone up drastically.

When and How to get Dragon

  • The enemy bot lane or mid laner recalled
  • The enemy jungler is top side
  • Enemy team has no vision
  • You and you're teammates are healthy
  • You're top laner has Teleport or neither top laners have Teleport
  • Drop a pink ward in the dragon pit and or sweep it
  • Place deep wards in enemy jungle
  • Burst the drake down
  • Save Q Resonating Strike and Smite for finishing blow

When and How to Steal Dragon and Baron

  • Steal dragon if you can try it and survive
  • You need to stop enemies' 5th dragon
  • You need to get 5th dragon
  • Always try to steal Baron
  • Ward the pit and stay in a safe unwarded area
  • Q Sonic Wave the objective when it gets low
  • Q Resonating Strike when it gets VERY close to smite's damage
  • Use Smite
  • Ward hop or flash over the wall or fight if you're team can

Lee Sin Tips

Please upgrade you're warding trinket at level 9 in order pull off some sweet escapes and maneuvers. If you do decide to go sightstone put it in you're 2 slot because 2 is above your W Safeguard on your keyboard making it easier.

This video will give you the rundown of all of Lee Sin's tricks that I cant explain as well in a typed format. It includes: ward hoping, insec and other combos
