Thread above^^

I'm always curious about the ways of playing Lee Sin. My preference is always the Atmog way, but I want to know if that really is the 'ideal' way. Is going glass cannon better or is going tanky better for Lee Sin.

Thanks :) Please comment I would really like to improve my Lee Sin gameplay.

Get survivability...not necessarily to the extent of offtank but at least 1 or 2 items dedicated to survivability.

If you are AD melee, you get survivability.

Glass cannon = insta death since you are in the middle of things.

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

Think of it this way.
Glass cannon = go in 1 second die.
Tanky Dps = go in die in 1 minute but since you are alive for 1 minute you attack more.

For Lee Sin, try Atma's Impaler+Warmog's Armor. It's strong and makes him tanky enough to survive a bit - from that point on you can rush straight glass cannon, but it's still a very good idea to get resistances.

Tanky DPS with Atmog's all the way. It has WAY more DPS than a more glass cannon Lee Sin, simply because you live long enough to pump out decent DPS rather than die in 3 1/2 seconds.

Fantastic artwork by Xiaowiriamu & TheNamelessBard!

Glass cannon is "all or nothing". Tanky Lee Sin is much better because he's strong and if it's hard to kill, idk what to say. Just get tanky.
