Lee Sin Intro

Sup! This is

and im doing my first guide here on Mobafire, so no hating! Im here to bring you my opinion how Lee Sin should be played in lane. This is a little bit of an offtank but in this guide im gonna be showing u a more spanking side of Lee Sin He is a pretty hard champ to play if ur new to LoL or just him. If ur missing the skillshots then ur pretty much screwed. When i play him, i dont really think so much, just doin' it.

Main rune set

Greater Mark of Desolation Greater Mark of Desolation
: Just some arm pen for doing that extra damage for lee sin and its also for destroying their armor[/b

Greater Seal of Vitality Greater Seal of Vitality
This is gonna be great for early survivability. U can choose to get flat hp or magic resist here too but im gonna go for health per level

[nextcol] Greater Glyph of Warding
Here is the magic resist that ur gonna need if they have gotten a fed ap champ.

Greater Quintessence of Strength
Some extra AD for getting that extra damage that can determine if u will get a kill or not

Other runes worth considering

Greater Mark of Strength
This is as my main quints. Extra AD is just good!

Greater Seal of Resilience
U can use this if u dont want to be shred and want to have some extra armor to be sure

[nextcol] Greater Glyph of Shielding
This could be used as it gives MR per level instead of flat MR. Its ur choice!

Greater Quintessence of Desolation Greater Quintessence of Desolation
This is if u wanna be more DPS and want to shred ur enemies. [/columns]

And we have come to the items for this monk. I would say starting of with Boots of Speed and 3 Health Potion is great for almost every champ. The boots is great for dominating ur lane and health pot for sustainance in lane.

Then u wanna go for Mercury's Treads that give u extra magic resist and nice decrease of CC.
By far the best boots u can get.

And then i choose to go for a 1337 Item The Brutalizer which gives u nice arm pen and epic stuff for early game. GR8

And now we have come to the funny part of this item build. Warmog's Armor which gives u a lot of hp and by the time u have bought this item then u wanna last hit minions for getting extra health.

And now when we have gotten a lot of hp then
Atma's Impaler is ur best choice. It will give extra ad depending on ur hp so its a +. Also it will give u armor so u will be a little more offtank.

And now u wanna do some damage, then i suggest u buy The Bloodthirster, this will give u AD and some lifesteal. The Bloodthirster also have a passive stack which will give MORE ad and lifesteal, but it will disappear if u will be killed.

Infinity Edge This just says it all. Infinity Edge. A great item for last game. U will crit very hard and doing a lot of spanking on ur opponents! I really like this item for Lee Sin

Situational Items :

: If their ap carry is critting hard, then u wanna go for this for the magic resist.

: Same thing here. If theirs ad carry is critting hard then go for this.

: If ure feeling that u just dont wanna die, go for this ;>

When playing Lee Sin u wanna put ur points on the offensive tree and some on the utility. If u wanna be more tanky, i could suggest going 21-9-0 instead, but 21-0-9 is my choice

Skill Sequence

Use : This is a 2-in-1 ability. The first ability is preatty easy skillshot, it deals damage and reveal enemies if in a bush. This is my iniation ability and i also use it to check bushes. The second ability if used will dash to ur enemies hit by the first ability. If u manage this 2 abilities then Lee Sin is gonna be really fun.

Use : I like this 2-in-1 ability for helping teammates out or just getting away from ur enemies. This will dash u to a friendly target. So as mentioned in an other guide here on Mobafire, i like to keep 1-2 wards in my inventory then putting it over walls then dashing to it using ur W. Really nice little trick ;)

Use : This is also a 2-in-1 ability. The first one will hit enemies near you and revealing them for a couple of secs, so when in middle of Akali's stealth ring then use this in the middle of it.

The second ability is a slow which i really like. Really helpful for chasing down ur enemies

Use : I love this ult. IT will knock back ur enemies and knock enemies hit by the champ u used the ability on in the air. If u use ur Flash in front of the enemy when chasing them then u can knock them back to ur teammates. Really helpful.

Summoner Spells

Main Spells :

Exhaust : This is just great for almost every melee champ. It will slow ur enemy down and also making it unavailable to hit u. Epic in my opinion

Flash : This is like the main spell for a lot of champs. Use this to chase down ur enemies or just running away from ur enemies

Situational Spells :

Ignite : Can work but its not my main choice

Ghost : If u like this more, exchange it for Flash

Teleport : If ur team havent got someone using this, go for it!

Heal : Could be useful in early game for survivability but when u got ur bloodthirster it is gonna be worthless, cuz u got lifesteal by that time.

Cleanse : Work for some champs, but u got ur CC boots and i think its enough, but if u like it then go for it

Fortify : Leave this for the main tank

Clairvoyance Leave this for the support

Revive : Probably the worst summoner spell their is on LoL

Clarity : Lee sin is aint even using mana. kekekeke ;>

Rally : Im not sure what this even do ._.

Smite : This is aint a jungle guide
