Welcome to my Lee Sin guide

Hey Guys. I am Triebtäter, an EUW Gold 2 Summoner with over 500 Lee Sin Rankeds from Germany and i wanna show you my way to play Lee Sin.
I start playing Lee Sin in Season 3 and picked him as my main till now.
Since i couldnt find a good Guide for pre Season 6, that worked for me I decdied to creat one myself.
This is just a short guide but i try to do my best to update it and add new informations.

I know that reading a Guide can take very long and become boring, so i wanna share this with you:

Greater Mark of Lethality

Greater Mark of Attack Damage

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage


Greater Mark of Armor Penetration 4x and 5x
Since does not longer gives armor penetration, we pick up 4x Greater Mark of Armor Penetration and 5x
It gives us 5.12 armor penetration + some from and we wont miss this 3.8 AD.


9x for better sustain in Jungle early.


or Greater Glyth of Cooldown Reduction
Here we can take 9x if the enemy Team has strong AP or we dont feel safe.
Otherwise we choose 6x Greater Glyth of Cooldown Reduction and 3x

Greater Glyth of Cooldown Reduction is realy great with Lee Sin. It allows us to cast our Skills more often.
Only our energy can stop us here. I hope we do not .


for better burst.

Guide Top


We pick 12/18/0 Masteries after patch 5.24 because it gives us all we need as Lee Sin.

Since the nurf of Cunning is now better then Ferocity for Lee Sin.


I think i dont need to explain why i chose which skill.

Ferocity or Resolve ?

Ferocity gives us more early damage and some sustain, while Resolve has only deffensive stats.
So we go for


or ?

stacks good with our .
With every AA we get some Energy back and the more often we strike, the more energy we have available to cast our abilities.

works with Lee Sin also, but with we can clear our Jungle alot faster.

or Feast ?

for more burst or
Feast for more sustain early.
Decide yourself here.

or ?

stacks well with our .
gives very low stats: 10 AD and 15 AP in level 18. I think it isnt worth.

or ?

works well in Teamfights.
As Jungle Lee Sin its our goal to support our team, even if we are able to carry a game.

You can swap Ferocity for Resolve if you feel to squishy.

Maxing W or E secondary ?

In every game with Lee Sin we should ask ourself if maxwing or secondary.

Against Champions like we always should max secondary.
Sometimes the enemy Team has more then twice , then max too.

But if we are snowballing, doing fine or our Team needs some extra damage we always go for .

Usually Jungler start with and

Our early goal is to finish as fast as we can.
At our first back we want to pick up + and if we can one or two .

If we have enough gold to get , skip and go for it.
We pick up a if we have extra cash.

Our next items depends on enemy Team and how we go.

Offtank Lee Sin

At our first back we get + .

Next you have to decied yourself:

Against heavy AP we can also get a early and go on with and , which we can build in or

If there ADC is fed or they have much champions who scale with attack speed go for .

We finish our build with
Choose wisely and check out notes for hints.

AD Lee Sin

If we are doing well in early game or we want to build AD Lee Sin, get or up to 4x .

Against heavy AP Team we rush .
Or if we have 1300Gold at recall get after and finish your early build with + .

is a realy stong alternative to .
Pick it against Champions like to counter them.

Rush or

If i am realy fed in early i like to pick up a and build it into to snowball even harder.

An other option is to build early your in and follow up with .

Now its time to get a deffensive Item.
So we will pick up or an other deffensive item, thats depends on the enemy team.
Choose wisely.


We want to get as last item, if we get focused hard or we feel to squishy in teamfights. Doesnt matter if playing Tank or Ad Lee Sin.

Jungling and Ganking

We usually start always at Botlane side because of better poke.
Slain Golems/Gomp with early and decide yourself:

for early top gank:

Gomp start: take down wolves then slain blue with and rush top. Kill crab after gank.

Golem start: we go to wraiths and kill the little one first - start fighting them with w aa aa w aa aa, next slain red with . Go straight to Top lane. Kill crab after gank.

When should we gank Top early ?
We should always try to take down the enemy Top laner as first, if there is a strong early Champion like which we support/take down or the Match is unbalanced.


we take wolves/wraiths, blue/red then crab and gank bot or mid.

If we use this jungle route we just need 1 hp pot in early and we can stay longer in Jungle.

Remember to take down river crab everytime you are near, except you can gank a lane or take blue/red.

How do we gank a lane ?
If we gank a lane, we will try to get close enough to our mate minion or ward.
Only engage with if we are sure that we can hit it.

When should we gank a lane ?
We should only gank a lane if we know that our gank is successfull.
Otherwise its lost time and we will fall behind.
Remember: Time = Money = Exp.

Our gank was successfull when we took a kill/assist or the enemy laner has to recall.

After ganking we help our laner to push the lane or take down tower.

Sometimes it make no sence to gank a lane if one of our mates is feeding or losing hard. Then we try to help the other lanes.

In mid game when top/bot lane is pushed by enemy or your team is pushing, we always try to take down Wolves with to spend vision in Jungle.

Here is an example where we could place our vison wards.

Place the vision wards without black frame in enemy Jungle.
We need to be sure that we can defend our ward before we place it, otherwise its wasted money.

Before we take down Baron or Dragon, we place a vision ward and take down crab.

Our Job as Lee Sin in Teamfights is to

  • take down enemy carries

  • protect your carries

As AD Lee Sin we want to stay behind and take down the enemys who are low HP
or come from an other side to surprise them with an insec kick, while picking out a carry
(example: ward w q r q)

As Tank Lee Sin its easier to pick out an enemy carry because we can easily disengage after .

Remember to wardjump or flash before an enemy to determine the direction.

Sometimes we have to protect our carries (example: if we play against a Team with strong tanks or much CC) then we should keep to kick them away.

Drake / Baron steal

Lee Sin is great in stealing Baron or Dragon.
All we need to do is to stay behind the wall of Dragon / Baron and calculate our damage, land , go in with , take it down with and escape easily with .

By calculating your damage we have to check damage which depends on our level plus + and wait for the perfect moment to engage.

Be sure that there are no enemy wards in our near, if we are waiting to engage.
Clear with or .

Another way is to facecheck them and come from front of Baron / Dragon.
But keep in mind that this is a realy risky way and we could die realy fast.
