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.
Hello! Welcome to my Lee sin Guide for Jungle! Before we get into it let me give you some advice. Lee sin is a very Unique champion to play. It will take time and practice with him to get good with him. However I will try and help you as best I can. With that Being said enjoy this guide. If you have any questions or comments please let me know!
Runes that I use are as follows.
Armorpen = Reds Optional: 6 Armorpen 3 Flat Attack Damage
Flat Armor = Seals
Flat Magic Resist = Glyphs
Flat Attack Damage = Quints
I find either of these two setups to be some of the best runes to use to clear the jungle with lee sin.
Grab your E - W - Q For your frist Three skills. Then focus leveling your Q. Putting points in your ult when you can afford. Then put points into your E Then W. This can be reversed if you find yourself in need of the extra bonus off of your W. I find that often times I prefer to go with the e for the extra slow during teamfights and ganks however if you find yourself getting blown up by damage or having trouble with sustain then grab your W instead.
Creeping / Jungling
There are two main jungle routes you will want to take on lee sin. Either start at wolves > Wraiths > Golems.
Start Directly at Golems, Then gank bot or do red. Use [Cloth Armor and 5HP pots]
For counter jungle Start at Golems with [Cloth Armor and 5HP pots]
Kill Golems get to level two and then Counter.
Team Work + QRQ.
Teamwork is essential on Lee Sin never forget that you can jump to a target and sheild them with your w. Remember to ward often! This helps you and your team sight is something that lee sin is very good at granting even though he is blind.
Using this build you aim to be an offtank/Anti carry. You want to target the main sources of damage during teamfights and atttempt to kill or disable them. Lee sin's ultimate when used right can be a mini five-man stun. Don't be afraid to use it when needed.
Lee sin also has what I like to call the "Kill Combo" This skill combo maximises his single target nuke ability. This is done by first Q'ing the target and then Using your R to kick them away, After this you return to them with the second part of your Q. This puts out your maximum damage on that single target and if used right will ensure your team a kill.
If reading is not your thing. Then I have posted a video guide aswell For those that do not want to watch the full thing. Skip to 8:00. I would recommend skipping the parts that are slow and going to what you want to see.
The reason I take this certain skill sequence is because his Q is him main source of damage. You will find that if you do not land your q then your damage you output will largely go down.
His q also has the ability to follow flashes or jumps. His E is an aoe slow that is applied in the area around lee sin/ The first part does damage while the second part slows movement and attack speed. His W grants him a small shield and jumps to targeted location if no target is in range. The second part of his W provides a minor Armor and lifesteal boost.
The most immportant thing to rememeber when playing lee sin is to use his passive effectivly. His passive gives him a 50% attack speed boost for the next two attacks after he uses any skill. An Example of this being properly used is you grab E Use it once on wolves. Then auto attack two times and use the second part of the E. This gives your passive maximum use.
All in all I find that lee sin can be one of the most rewarding champions to play when done correctly that can add a solid stopping power to many diffrent team comps. He also is the only champion in the game to feature a stealth debuff!
