Well, I've got a few listen pros and cons here.
Great damage output with some burst damage with the right skill sequence.
Good moveability - 2 kinds of ports
Support with shield is awesome to save low target Allies.
Is a carry.
Good lifesteal with his shield
Finishing of target's that running away;D
Knockback with ult<3(can be used both for saving yourself/allies and knocking enemies into towerrange/team)
Can reveal stealthed targets!!:D both with Q and E spell. -Eve and Twitch are gonna hate this champion.
Kinda squishy in the start if you are not going tankspec/dorans shield(not a problem when jungling)
For some people he might be hard to master since Sonic Weave isn't the easiest spell to land on enemy champion
Can also be used but not very recommended since you are having enough health to pass your jungle round.
If you don't got access to dodge runes you can run flat armor runes aswell on yellow.
So summoner spells.
For jungling with Lee Sin you need smite, not only that it goes faster, but it's good lasthitting baron and dragon.
Great for catching up enemies / escaping.
Depending on your playstyle if you just wanna jump into everyone and just Dragon's rage out the most squishy in a teamfight. I will although still recommend ghost over this, but it's all up to your decision to pick out a summoner spell :)
Here's the real deal, however you decide your gamestyle should be your item should suit you aswell. Recommended to read all of this.
When you start of your jungling route, you simply go and 3-5 depending on how safe you feel in the jungle. As soon as possible get a .
Playstyle: Here it mostly depends on yourself for chose of boots. You can Either get or depending on how you wanna play the character. Attackspeed is always good for LS but if you are intressed in pulling some early ganks etc and have a good escape mechanism already you maybe should go for boots of mobility, this is not what I recommend although but it's all up to you to try out what suits you the best.
After boots, get a hand of the awesome Sheen, cause we all know that Sheen Lee rocks. <3
Too pump off the damage even more from ur sheen get a Big F*****g Sword
The rest itembuild is just to follow any other AD carry, an example in my item section at the top of the guide.
Creeping / Jungling
So the jungleroute is currently if you are getting help from teammates to firsthit the blue buff - then go wolfs, ghosts, red, and golems, should not be any problem atm.
If you wanna go the safe route it's also a good idea, but just that it might take some extra time, then it's wolfs, wraiths, golem, blue, red.
ATM- his E is bugged, so if you press it quick enough it will do the damage TWICE! kinda awesome for jungling I must say.
For the lifesteal you have to use your W skill twice.
So his skills are pretty much like leblanc and other assasins, you can port there and there and EVEN THERE! No but seriously, your E spell, target enemy champion and for the next 3 seconds you can port to him. And then his W, the shield, you can either target friendly target or ally to port to that point. Great for towerdiving, going in with Q going out with W:)
Another thing is that you can reveal stealthed enemy champions which is awesome. Twitch and Evelynn are just gonna hate this champion.
I prioritze TEMPEST / CRIPPLE atm just cause it's the most damage output IF you spam the button cause you can make the attack twice. Otherwise I would go and max sonic wave first. But until they change this still max out tempest before sonic wave.
Lee Sin is a range, melee, tanky-dps, assassin, mage, tank, support, jungler. He excels at everything. Lee sin's hidden passive is blindness.
Lee Sin's background
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 LeagueÃ�ï¿½Ã�Â¢Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½s 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 Leagues 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 boys entire village was obliterated by feedback from the ritual.
Lee Sins 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 monks only possessions.
In my opinion this character has been good balanced, he's not to OP nor UP. When I mean OP, not like nocturne(?)(WTF RIOT), I hope he gets nerfed soon, tired of all the ganks from nowhere, wards dont mean **** anymore:)
I will most likley see some amazing players playing lee sin soon and they will be rather good, he can arange good teamfights and ganks, just cause of good damage output, shield surviving ability and KNOCKBACK.
