The build number 3 is the build i've designed most recently. I have created the most leathal build for Lee Sin yet!

I promiss you this build will make it easy to get stacks and even easier to rape the enemy.
This is a video of how much damge he is capable of doing.. I did this to Master Yi.
But before you go into some chant about how Master Yi isn't easy to kill. Just remember is ademonstration of how much damage he is capable of. Also remember that Resonating Strike does 10% of missing health. So if the enemy is a little tanky they will get hit HARDER! ;)

Down Votes/ Trolls

So far every downvote doesn't have a reason and are from people who has just created an account that very day with no post. Dont let it fool you, they are just trolls who cant get their **** out there so they make others look bad. This is a GREAT Guide!

Funny its still the same thing after having my guide up for awhile now.. Guess some people are just pathetic. I'm making it where you have to comment again, just because of trolls. Even if this is number one guide, im tired of people being jealous. Get your own guide out there, and lay off otheres accomplishments.

20 Haters/Trolls!!! I have yet to get a downvote with a legitament reason. When will mobafire take off spam comments/votes of kids with 1 post and all negative.


More videos will be uploaded by the end of the day.

Notes: I have been playing this champion a lot lately and some things are going to change in the guide as far as builds go that work better and that aren't as well played.

Tank Lee will be getting a little bit of damaged added to his build. He really cant dish out any harrasment mid-late game with no damage items.

There has been a forum post on League of Legends

Sonic Wave/Resonating Strike AD ratio increase to 1.0 from 0.8
Tempest/Cripple AD ratio increased to 1.0 from 0.6
Dragon's Rage AD ratio increased to 2.0 from 1.5
Flurry's Energy restoration increased to 15 from 10.

Help me improve my guide!

Before you get I get into all the details of how your going to destroy the competition.. I just wanted to say that I would like if everyone who reads my guide will feel free to leave me some feedback on what I might be missing. What you would like to see in the future and suggestions, other tips etc. I am all ears when it comes to working together. Thanks everybody and enjoy the guide!

A little about myself

My summoner name is "Durkaa Durka"
I have a full detailed guide on Ashe, Nocturne, Jarvan, ETC.
I love writing guides on champs because I want everyone to enjoy playing as boss as I do.

I'm just here to promiss you the 10 secret ways of being a ninja.

Fact: Lee Sin

Fact: Lee's does often go by Mr. Miyagi

Fact: Lee Sin died 5 years ago. Death hasn't summed up the courage to tell him yet

Fact: Lee Sin doesn't flush the toilet. He scares the **** out of it

Fact: When Lee Sin pokes you on face book. You die

Pros / Cons

-Farming like he invented John Dear
-Very Fast
-No problem getting out of sticky situations
-Beastly at poking (Check tips and tricks for this)
-Doesn't need to go home to get health

-Often ****ed with
-Doesn't like AP style enemies
-Somewhat of a learning curve
-Requires skill shots

(Dont ult if jarvan is on your team and near by. There has been times when we both ulted together and hes in the ring alone.. ) (hahahahhaa)

Hybrid, DPS, Tank, Anti AP

The hybrid build is the most fluent Lee build for my playing style. Which is very agressive.
In this build you will get a lot of Damage, AP, Mobility, & Heatlh!

This is a great way to play him, if you cant get stacks. I do understand that you have to work with what you got yourself up against. (This is the build I used when receiving multiple double kills in a single game)

How to dish out lots of damage probably best for if you like to be a powerhouse and rape kids. Dont recomend for team fights though, your very easily taken down if targeted.
Should have no problems in a 1v1

Perfect for staying in team fights and saving lives and possibly being the most annoying harasser in the game. Can just take abuse and dish it right back out.
This is recommended if they have 2 or more tanks on their team. You will be suprised how long you can stay around in team fights. We have added Sword of Occult!
since he doesn't die often with this build he will gain rather fast AD if in the team fights!

I have removed this part of the guide. I feel that if we have enough request for Tanky Lee Sin I will repost it.

Anti AP
This is only recommended if their team loaded with CC and AP ALL OVER THE PLACE!
This is a must in these situations because magic and Lee are from different time zones, and he doesn't like it. At all! He will be survivable and a threat.

Same goes for the Anti-Ap part of the guide. I will be removing it unless I have enough request. I feel the guide looks tacky with 5 selections.

Runes & Masteries

Seals- Vigor (HP5 Per lvl)
Glyphs- Atack Speed!
Quintessences- Swiftness, or Energy Per 5!

My masteries are 21-0-9
I do have them targeting minons in my offense too.
He has an AOE that does raw damage to them. Plus 4 per minion.. Thats great for farming :D
After all money equals items..

Summoner Spells

This could be the difference in an escape or just taking less damage in a 1v1
Who says white man cant run? You might be in a sticky situation, best way to get out.
This is what can get you first blood in most situations!
Best on the Tanky builds with him, he is designed to take less damage in those builds and if you do happen to get in a bind why not give yourself a decent bonus of health since your pretty much damage proof as it is..
If you are playing a tanky build and aren't as fast or you just are worried about CC this is a great way of getting out! Especially against those dang AP champs!

Recommended Items that go with Lee


I have achieved 4 double kills in less then 12 min this guy!
It was against Xin and Blitz! Laning with Kat.

This guy is a-mazing at spaming his abilities almost. Why? Well his passive restores his energy in just 2 quick hits. All abilities give you 3 seconds or more to activate the next one.. So do you just randomaly spam Q Q E E??? NO.
Atleast not while farming for gold.

You Q for the initiate auto attack once or twice and then Q again.. You then have to E and then run and AA on minons quick to get fast energy

You see yo will end up getting a bunch of extra energy to spam abilities if you space time out while farming. You can also mix them up while spamming, no specific order will cancel anything out... Yay!

Now when it comes to a hands down fight. You can spam them, but be aware that you might not hae the energy to finish them.
There has been times that we ignitate and I get them but cant finish because they made it to safety before energy was ready. What do we do in this situation? Well its kinda like WW would do with his life steal. Hit a minion!

If used right you can spam abilities and kill champs in a matter of seconds.

How to improve your gameplay with Lee

I will have video tutorials up soon!

Thats a main thing with him. You want to predict where the enemy is going to be so you can harass them with your Q.
It is very spamable but quite hard to land at times. That can all change with a little practice :D
If you miss the enemy and still hit a minon near him wait to see if he stays near it. If he does you want to Q over there E use W to escape and then harass him with E again.
At this point he will be running away because he doesn't know what to expect. You slowing him while he moves away makes him think he doesn't want to be near you. This is perfect because now your getting in their head, and screwing with the way they play.
If he tries to harass you must harass more.

Things to be expected while playing Lee
-If you lane stay in the bush
-Harass with Q
-Last hit minoins and get back in bush
-Constantly harass so they don't know if your messing with them or mean business
-Go to town on them

Tip number one is learning how to get in and out with little to no damage recieved.

A secret from the ninja brotherhood:

Step 1 QEWE repeat
Step 2 When low enough QERWE
Step 3 Repeat step 1

While your in the bush you want to Q in E, W, E

How to get in front of them and get them round housed back to your team? this is quite easy.
If there are two of them aim for the one farthest away so your infront of one and he gets destroyed. Or aim for their minoins in front of them. Its most easily done when you first ignitiate. But there has been times I have used it to finish kills.

This is very hard to master if you get into the habbit of harassing because they are very close to the same combos but much more fast paced! This will almost always guarentee a kill.

Here is the trick.

You need to be able to hit them with your
Then immidiately hit the closest minion to them with safeguard.
Quickly get off your Dragon's Rage!
Chase after him with the Resonating Strike!
Use your tempest, and criple to seal the deal.

Now he knows your not messing around.

Steps to follow.

-Make sure friendly minons near by
-Try to get target alone
-Dont waste your Resonating Stike

How dare you test my PING PONG HONOR!!

Now that you messed with me its time to feel the wrath of a Ninja.
I dont recomend fighting solo against champs that have lots of AP unless you know the fights in your hands!

Also Lee doesn't like crowd control very much.

Twitch is the easiest to kill with Lee because one roundhouse and hes only a flying foot away from dead. :D

Only Lee can Solo Barron with his eyes closed ;)

Jungle me not

Lee wasn't equiped with one of those seeing eye dogs.. So dont forget to help out with wards.
If you think you can play without then your wasting your time.
You will end up getting ganked and probably start getting pissed at your teamates.
Not good! Most late games the winning team has your jungle warded up to the point you cant leave base without an *** kicking.

Lee does very well with oracles especially when teemos tricky little mushrooms are planted everywhere.

You want to make sure you get wards in and out of yours and their jungle and be careful while placing them for you might run into a gank if they beat you to it.

Learning Curve

Lee is takes a little more expierenced player to control.
You should always remember that being out numbered isn't good even for the legendary Lee.
Unless your a fast learner he can be confusing on what to do in sticky situations.
Many times you want to keep your eyes out for solos thats where you become the MAN.
Be aware that they will try to target you a lot.

He is quite the team fighter too. I have found him to be most useful with a partner at all times if you can. It just helps in escapes if needed.

Ninja Skills

You want to aim your skills in this priority.

Dragon's Rage
Lee Sin performs a powerful roundhouse kick launching his target back, dealing physical damage to the target and any enemies they collide with. Enemies the target collides with are knocked into the air for a short duration
Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike
Sonic Wave: Lee Sin projects a discordant wave of sound to locate his enemies, dealing physical damage to the first enemy it encounters. If Sonic Wave hits, Lee Sin can cast Resonating Strike for the next 3 seconds.

Resonating Strike: Lee Sin dashes to the enemy hit by Sonic Wave, dealing physical damage plus 10% of their missing health.
Tempest / Cripple
Tempest: Lee Sin smashes the ground sending out a shockwave that deals magic damage and reveals enemy units hit. If Tempest hits an enemy, Lee Sin can cast cripple for the next 3 seconds.

Cripple: Lee Sin cripples nearby enemies revealed by Tempest, reducing their Movement and Attack Speed for 4 seconds. Movement and Attack Speed recover gradually over the duration.
Safeguard / Iron Will

Safeguard: Lee Sin rushes towards a target ally, shielding them both from damage. If a shield is broken, half the energy cost is returned. After using Safeguard, Lee Sin can cast Iron Will for the next 3 seconds.

Iron Will: Lee Sin's intense training allows him to thrive in battle. For 5 seconds, Lee Sin gains lifesteal, spell vamp, and armor.

Tower Diving use to be rammus's thing

Tower Diving
Dont try this at home!
When you do get the chance to get some tower damage in here are a few things to remember.
-Spam abilities

Yup thats it! Just remember that and your good. He gets double his atack speed. He can pretty much run through a tower in no time.
But seriously Rammus sucks. :D

Tips to Heal faster!

Lee quickly shields himself because he is selfish and doesn't want to take more damage then he has to while attempting to heal.
Once he starts to heal he quickly wants to be able to spam abilites because his passive heals him faster.

With the items choices he has in his hybrid build he should heal like it was rank 5 at rank 1.
