Summoner Spells Back to Top

You will find yourself going for these two summoner spells pretty much all the time since they offer you the best possible support as Lee Sin:

11.png needs no further introduction; as jungler you need it to be able to clear the jungle in the very early stages of the game or to secure objectives like drakes or barons.
Furthermore you need to take 11.png to be able to buy your jungle item.



4.png is also extremly important to be able to perform these fancy kick-combinations.
There are many different ways to use 4.png effectively. I will try to explain some of them in another section of my guide.



Alright, let's start your little journey through my guide with a short atmospheric video ;)


New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

12/18/0 is definetly the most common way to go in season 7.


Worth mentioning:

Ferocity:

Fury / Sorcery: Both seem to work quite well. I prefer Fury.

Cunning:

Runic Affinity / Assassin: Personal choice

Greenfather's Gift / Dangerous Game: Personal choice aswell - most players are sticking with Greenfather's Gift so far.

Starting with blindmonkqone.png provides you the easiest start. Don't forget to use your passive! Wait until you hit your target 2 times and then Q the second time since it will deal even more DMG.

I'm skilling blindmonkwone.png at lvl 2 but sometimes I also see Lee Sins going for E second, you should try it yourself and see which you feel more comfortable with. I prefer going for W.


Maxing Q first is allways the best choice. It scales well, provides you more mobility.
Pretty much the same goes for W: maxing W second provides more mobility and durability since you will get bigger shields and more lifesteal / spell vamp by triggering Iron Will. Maxing E second gives you a litle bit more DMG but that's not what Lee Sin is about anymore. It's all about your mobility to make well coordinated kick possible.
W helps in these situations more than E.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard Start

Core Items

    [Attention] Extremly situational! The Core Build can vary due to specific matchups.
    Full Item Build Example #1: Against a standard team comb with 1-2 magic damage sources.
    Full Item Build Example #2: Against Heavy AP combs with 2-3 magic damage sources.

Situational Items

    Allways a good choice against AD teams and if you need to build more tanky. Must-Have-Item if you are playing against double adc / champs who crit often (Yasuo).
    Provides important stats aswell as a pretty usefull spell shield which is very important in team fights to be able to deny a stun / CC on you (otherwise you won't be able to land usefull kicks). Must-have against AP-Team-Combs.
    More offensive version of Banshee's Veil. If you need more DMG go for this instead of Banshee's.
    Against heavy AD Combs.
    If you feel extremly comfortable / you are extremly fed.
    Another really good off-tank choice which even gives you movement speed. This should be your first "defensive" item most of the time.
    Another really good off-tank item.
    Another really strong item for Lee - again with offensive and defensive stats - makes it much easier to jump in and survive especially for mid / late game teamfights against grouped teams
    Really reliable against heavy AP comps. Go for Spirit Visage instead of Banshee's Veil if you don't need the spell shield.

This is the Build-Path I'm going for most of the time:


  • 1039_32.png, 2031.png + 3340_32.png
  • First Goal: Getting 1408.png asap.
  • Boots: I pretty much always go for either 3047.png or 3111.png depending on how much CC the enemy's team has.
  •  3155.png to extend your early game pressure while getting some survivability aswell.
  • 3742.png or 3143.png (at this point you definetly going to need some armor); take 3143.png against Champions like 157.png, 41.png, 202.png to reduce their critical damage.
  • depends on matchup / how far ahead or behind you are:  3156.png / 3102.png / 3071.png / 3075.png / 3143.png / 3053.png / 3026.png / 3190.png


Buy 2055.png whenever you are going back and keep 3340.png as trinket until LvL 9 to get 3364.png to deny vision (if you are far behind as a team stick with 3340.png).


Please keep in mind that this is just ONE possible build based on my personal playstyle, skill and experience! There are many other ways to be successful!

Tips and Tricks / How to do Back to Top

In this section im going over a few pretty basic mechanics which are extremly important.


  • Smartcasting: Playing Lee without Smartcast is barely possible. In order to be successful you need to be fast, very fast. That's why you should use Smartcast, especially for ward jumping.

  • Ward jumping: In order to make plays you have to be able to ward jump very fast - smartcasting helps you. Another tip: Bind your trinket-ward (Warding Totem) and your Control Ward allways on 2 specific keybindings. For me these 2 keys are "2" and "C" ("2" for my Control Ward and "C" for my Trinket). As you may noticed "2" and "W" are really close together which makes it really easy to ward jump. For "C" I'm using my thumb while I'm keeping my middle finger on "W".


  • "Doing the Insec": This very popular technic kicks your enemies in a specific direction. It's name comes from the korean player Insec who became famous by mastering this technic. Without further introduction, here is a video which shows how it works:



  • Flash-Kick and Kick-Flash: These 2 technics are pretty similar. The Flash-Kick is a bit easier while the Kick-Flash is more efficient.

    When Flash-Kicking the target, you first flash behind the target to get in position to kick right afterwards. The only problem is that many players will react fast enough to flash away which will result in kicking them in the wrong direction. The other technic makes this more difficult for your opponent.

    When Kick-Flashing you first use your Ultimate on your target and then flash instantly behind it. Since Lee Sin's Ult has a casting time it will result in an instant kick right after you flashed behind the target. Your enemy won't be able to react to this most of the time.

Closing Words Back to Top

This Guide is still under some small constructions!

I will keep updating this guide over and over again.


Please keep in mind that this is not meant to be an in-depth guide! I wrote it just to give a small overview about Lee while providing some tips and tricks and possible item-builds.

I'm still extremly new to writing guides so any feedback, advices, questions or suggestions are highly appreciated!
