Heyho everyone here at Mobafire.

I´m Marth8 a member of the MultigamingFEAR clan and i want to show you,
how to play with Lee Sin, the blind Monk.
I have played League of Legends now 6 months and Lee sin is my
favourite char and for me the best jungler,
because he has nice skills and it´s very easy to be a really good jungler.

If you are loving to jungle and be very fast there
and to make epic ganks, then this guide is perfect for you.
Hope you will like it and please left a comment,
if you find an advice to make this guide better.

Also our team has an youtube channel,
it would be very nice if you would look some vids there:

If you have tested this build and found success with it, I encourage you to send me a picture with your score which I will post.

Now go on and enjoy it.

Simple AD runes here

i will tell you, which runes i prefer.

I play with very AD-likely runes.


The Glyphes are a important part of the runes with
the a high amount of armor penetration.
Because of penetrating the enemy armor,
you can easily do the highest damage output in early and late game.
Also you need some Attack Damage for getting more dmg to the vasalls,
that you don´t fail in ganking.

Marks & Seal
As you know armor penetration is not working with an low amount of attack damage and
also you need attack damage that you don´t fail in jungle.
So you must get Attack Damage runes to cause more damage.

That´s rly simple.


Same as in Marks & Seal,
but you could also prefer armor penetration runes,
cause you already have enough Attack damage,
but you must minor manage the jungle well,
because with little attack damage you can´t handle
the jungle very well and so you have a risk to fail like at blue.

The choice of Masteries is very simple, too.
Just get the AD-Masteries,
where you are getting more AD,lifesteal to do as known the highest damage output.

The missing 9 points you can distribute in these ways:

1.Health and Armor
- Put the 9 Points as in the Head of the Build at Health and armor,
so you have more Health and armor for deff and to manage the jungle better.
---> So you have more health, because of the 30 Health option and that causes
tthat you´re having more health, when you gank mid or top like after blue.
2.Jungling stats like minion dmg 1/2
- Put the 9 points at jungle things like more dmg on vassalls
--->would cause a better jungling, but has not a huge influence on normal teamplay/gameplay.

Summoner Spells

Easy selection:


-needed for jungling to handle jungle
-->you can´t jungle without ignite

-escape or flash in ganks
--->good option

or Ghost
-if you fail in jungle it could save your life
-escape from ganks and go faster in ganks
-->very helpful in whole game

Now i will show you how you should jungle with Lee Sin.

This is my jungle route:
I start at Red. Let him Pull.
Then use "E" make 2 hits and use again "E" to get the bonus attack speed(passive).

When he is on half a live use ignite.

Then go to wizards, portect yourself with w and heal yourself a litte bit with lifesteal.

Then go to wolves(same as wizards).

Start blue.Finish him with ignite.
Second blue you can give to mid char or anyone.

Now there are two options. Firstly, you could go heal at wolves and wizards again and
then gank bot or mid.
Secondly you could gank immediatly mid or top. This depends on, whether top or mid is low
or anyone need help with a gank.
How to gank, you can see in the chapter ganking.

Therefore here is a video for jungling:

Skill Sequence

Here i will show you the skill sequence you should use for jungle, gank and teamfight.


In Jungle it´s very necassesary that you use lee´s passive.
When you put "E" wait until the passive ends and do it again, that you get the highest attack speed to handle the jungle firmly.
Also you must do this for "Q" and "W".
You should come to the monsters with Q and protect yourself with "W",too.


When you gank, you must hit with "Q". I will point this out in the part "Ganking".
When you hit with "Q" you must immediately jump to him,
put "E" and slow him fastly. Do not wait for attack speed here, cause you need the time,
which you get by slow. Then protect yourself to save, if the enemy turns and tries to kill you.


1. When you´re starting a teamfight, which you could do as off-tank(or tank).Try to jump in with "Q", but protect yourself and an allie as fast as you can and finish the enemys off then. Your tank, so don´t be scared, when you have around 100 hp, try to run away with "W" in the last seks.

2.When you´re comin' in a teamfight, rush into it with "Q". Cover yourself with "W", but hold your option to run away fast with "W", slow and make dmg with "E" and kick one outside with "R".

Then you go to gank...

This part is very very important.

First, you must hit your enemy with the "Q", jump to him and slow him with cripple.
After this you protect your self with w and kill him.

The hitting with Q is a very hard part:

1. When the enemy is moving you must recognize how fast the enemy is running in which direction he moves. Also you must know where your attack ends. Combine this and
hit the enemy. Here are some photos where i show you this:

At this photo, you see Volibear running away from you.
You must now recognize, where your "Q" will end and where the enemy will be when your
KI-Ball is there.
After this you need your standard combo with double "e" to slow the enemy.

At this photo, you see Tryn taking creeps.
As in the other photo you must recognize where he is going, because of you´re coming out of the jungle, he will be scared and run away. So you must hit him with "Q" and come to him to get hime before he´s leaving.

Finally, you see here Tryn coming to you. To do the most dmg hit him with "Q", jump to him,slow him with "e" and finish him with "R". Simple gameplay, but very effective.

Here some scene how to gank:
