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.
THIS BUILD IS NOT JUST GOOD FOR FIRST BLOOD
This build is also a guaranteed great rushdown game with Lee sin. and yes You should get first blood unless you are laning with a support character(Sona, soraka and small possiblitiy with kayle) besides taric.
Build 1 - Build 2
Build One Would be the main build used for Lee Sin
The Second build is for the ones not completely familiar with the lee sin build. (indepth :3) Step by Step
My ending AD becomes 415ish.
I added more survivalbility towards the build simply because a phage is great at start off for lee sin with attack speed.
Getting First Blood ALWAYS
First, laning side lanes are normally what a lee sin does, you should get to the brush as fast as possible and begin to exhaust your opponent as he gets closer, (Your battlebuddy and you) would now rush down the enemy and DO NOT MISS YOUR SKILL SHOT!!!!!(THE SKILL SHOT DEALS CLOSE TO 75% with these runes on many tanks and almost 90% hp on mages . Yes, at level 1!
Lee Sin, The Blind Monk
As a young teen, Lee Sin was intent on becoming a summoner. His will and dedication were unmatched by any of his peers, and his skill drew the attention of Reginald Ashram, the League's High Councilor at the time. While studying at the Arcanum Majoris, Lee Sin became frustrated with instruction paced for the other students. He spent his free time researching the nuances of summoning in hopes of graduating sooner. He made amazing advances in his arcane studies, surpassing all other students. By all indications, he would have become one of the League's greatest summoners were it not for one terrible mistake. Too impatient, he attempted to test his ability by summoning a beast from the Plague Jungles. What he summoned instead was a young boy, but not in one piece. He barely had time to look the boy in what was once his face before the jumbled human mass fell lifeless to the floor. A League investigation later revealed that the boy's entire village was obliterated by feedback from the ritual. Lee Sin's talents were so promising that the League was willing to overlook the incident, but he could never forgive himself. He left the Institute and journeyed to the Shojin Monastery for eternal repentance, swearing never to practice magic again. Years later, hoping to atone for his crime with martyrdom, he set himself ablaze as a protest of the Noxian occupation of Ionia. He remained alive in this state, enduring searing agony for weeks. His actions paved the way for a League match wherein Ionia prevailed, but by the time he was doused, his eyes had been burned completely from their sockets. Hailed as a savior, he was reborn, and his will to act invigorated. He joined the League of Legends to continue his atonement with sweat and blood, a true monk's only possessions. ''The actions of one may sunder the world, but the efforts of many may rebuild it.'' - Lee Sin

After Lee Sin uses an ability, his next 2 basic attacks gain 50% Attack Speed and return 10 Energy each.
Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike
Sonic Wave: Lee Sin projects a discordant wave of sound to locate his enemies, dealing physical damage to the first enemy it encounters. If Sonic Wave hits, Lee Sin can cast Resonating Strike for the next 3 seconds.
Resonating Strike: Lee Sin dashes to the enemy hit by Sonic Wave, dealing physical damage plus 10% of their missing health.
Safeguard / Iron Will
Safeguard: Lee Sin rushes towards a target ally, shielding them both from damage. If a shield is broken, half the Energy cost is returned. After using Safeguard, Lee Sin can cast Iron Will for the next 3 seconds.
Iron Will: Lee Sin's intense training allows him to thrive in battle. For 5 seconds, Lee Sin gains Lifesteal, Spell Vamp, and Armor.
Tempest / Cripple
Tempest: Lee Sin smashes the ground sending out a shockwave that deals magic damage and reveals enemy units hit. If Tempest hits an enemy, Lee Sin can cast cripple for the next 3 seconds.
Cripple: Lee Sin cripples nearby enemies revealed by Tempest, reducing their Movement and Attack Speed for 4 seconds. Movement and Attack Speed recover gradually over the duration.
Lee Sin performs a powerful roundhouse kick launching his target back, dealing physical damage to the target and any enemies they collide with. Enemies the target collides with are knocked into the air for a short duration. This technique was taught to him by Jesse Perring, although Lee Sin does not kick players off the map.
Armor Pen. Runes Simply for the Skill shot to kick. After that you normally would attack them with auto-attacks giving you early attack advantage.
Crit runes for small crit damage that could lead to an easier first blood and other fights later on .
The Seals could be switched out 5 energy regen runes for parts of the strength rune seals
Exhaust - NO dOubt
Flash / Ghost - Closely debatable yet im using ghost atm because of the easy getaways and exhaust ghost combo.
It seems your best friend are stunners. Anyone with a stun in your lane improves your chances for first blood even more. In the beginning i do not play aggressive but just enough to get that first blood. It contributes also to the carry in your lane leading to big success in the end.
Youre main Buddies that can easily lead you to first blood
These are all the characters i have gotten first blood with as a top lane or bottom lane.
RECOMENDED - Laning with sion would be a Definate first blood , To anycharacters that come.2nd Recomended xins 3 talin strike would be an easy first blood comboed with exhaust
Depeding on the others not listed would be purely through your skill shots.
