Summoner Spells Back to Top

Always take flash smite, you need flash to make plays and smite for jungle clear/ securing objectives. Never substitute flash, it's the best summoner spell in the game. You can use it to dodge abilities, escape, finish off people, insec (sometimes they blink away so you need an extra dash) Always take it.

Masteries Back to Top

Best masteries for lee this patch I think. Strength of the ages is one of the best masteries in the game (300 health!) 12 in cunning for the increased dmg, clear speed and dangerous game (also one of the best masteries, it can save you)

Max Q first ALWAYS, insane damage and makes lee a great skirmisher. ALWAYS take W second in the jungle, it's only slower than E clear by a couple of seconds but you clear way healthier and can escape ganks with wardhop. Max W or E second depending on the game. E is better for snowballing. W if you're going to sit on your carries to protect them. W + 3190.png shield is OP and the cd on w is lower if you use it on an ally.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Machete>Talisman, better clear speed
    If you get a good leash

Core Items

    Ward jumps + DMG
    Good item if ahead, health+ more one shot potential
    choose depending on game
    Buy this first before building into warrior

Situational Items

    get if your support doesn't, good rush item after warrior vs magic dmg
    good vs multiple magic dmg comps, upgrade into maw immediately (build tank after)
    catch potential, good armor item
    tank vs AD/crit, double slow
    get if support has locket and need mr
    AA based threats, only get as 5th/6th item
    you are jungler, buy these
    Very good item this patch, makes it easier to end a game
1408.png is taken over 1412.png or 1400.png mainly because you don't have to dump 800g into 2049.png afterwards.

I usually go 3117.png after 1408.png so I spend less time roaming and can aid my laners faster if they're being ganked. 3047.png or 3111.png for slower paced games where you need the extra armor or mr/cc reduction for later in the game.

3071.png is a great item on lee. It gives 300 hp, which is great because lee is squishy. If you are facing a fed AP or multiple magic dmg threats and want to snowball, 3155.png and 3156.png is amazing. A 3190.png  can give you that edge to win teamfight, it's an amazing item that at least 1 person should have every game. If your support is too stupid to build this and they have magic dmg threats, get it.. 3102.png is another great MR item that should be built if you need mr and your team already has a 3190.png. The spell shield is good for insec. 

3026.png This item right here is great this patch. Absolutely amazing for ending the game because you get to live after diving into the enemy team. Makes inseccing safer and makes people less likely to focus you.

3742.png is the best armor item to build first. It allows you to run up to someone, (because you are so fast) ward jump and E slow + auto to apply the 3742.png slow for insane catch potential. If you are ahead and build this people have to respect your catch potential a lot more. 3143.png is a great item vs fed ADCs, a trynd, yas or any crit champions. The slow is great for teamfighting.

2043.png ALWAYS buy these. These are very important for setting up drags, barons and controlling vision. Seriously for only 75g this is one of the best items in the game. Vision is extremely important and lee's ability to set up picks with his kick make vision denial really good on him.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Invade and destroy him. He's pretty weak and not played much. His early damage can be surprising though so be careful.

VS

Amumu

Easy

You beat him hard early and can bully him in his jungle.Invades are strong against this guy, but watch the map. Watch for his teamfight, curseofthesadmummy.png can change the game. If he goes full AP build be careful of his burst. Ward up and kill him if he tries to gank someone. Can be very scary if he gets snowballing, as he now can outduel you, farms faster, and is far more useful lategame and in teamfights.

VS

Brand

Easy

If he is mid, camp this guy. No mobility means he is dead everytime without 4.png. Good insec target too.

VS

Diana

Medium

Not played anymore, but still annoying. Look for counterganks, she will likely afk farm until 6. Pre-6 is your only real opportunity to invade here. Avoid fighting after 6 and look for counterganks instead because at 6 and after 1414.png, she can easily burst you down. You can do the same to her with QRQ but she is tankier with base stats and dianaW.png shield. Your kick counters her hard in teamfights. Play aggro in her jung pre-6, steal camps.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

He can beat you 1v1 if he lands infectedcleavermissilecast.png. Your ganks are better and you can destroy him in a countergank. His first clear is a bit unhealthy and you have a window to invade there. However, he outscales you extremely fast and becomes an unstoppable monster lategame.

VS

Elise

Medium

Outduels you, especially if her little spiders block your blindmonkqone.png. Classic early pressure vs early pressure jungler matchup, whoever plays better wins. Counterganks wreck eachother by both sides. Your 6 is stronger than hers. Get 1412.png to duel.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Annoying champ. Careful for the lvl 2 invade, stay healthy. You can also lvl 2 invade her, and if you both have the same idea you can beat her 1v1. If you countergank her, she dies because she is weak in skirmishes. If your team is bad she'll get a bunch of kills and become a monster later on in the game. She farms faster than you too. DO NOT give up kills to her and keep up the pressure.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

Early on you can bully him in the jungle, out gank and your counterganks wreck him hard because he is squishy. Have you or your support build 3190.png. You can deny his ult with your kick. His crowstorm.png is another gamechanger ult, ward up and don't start a fight if you don't know where he is.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Very scary if he gets snowballing. Abuse his pre-1402.png(or whatever jungle item he builds, most high elo hecs go runeglaive now) If he gets ahead early, he is a pain to deal with as he gets tanky, farms fast and disrupts teamfights with hecarimult.png.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Not that hard after nerfs. His first clear isn't that good anymore, easy invades. If he misses jarvanivdemacianstandard.png jarvanivdragonstrike.png you win HARD. After 1412.png you wreck him. His late is lackluster if he isn't fed. However, his ganks are extremely potent and he can get the game snowballing just as hard as you can.

VS

Jinx

Easy

Very easy gank and insec target.

VS

Kayle

Easy

She will afk farm the jungle. Invade her and make her cry. Be careful of kayleR.png. After 3931.png she destroys you and outscales you. She scales VERY hard, so don't let her win or go even early. Control dragons/scuttles to deny devourer stacks.

VS

Kindred

Medium

This champ should be banned. If she isn't however, you don't want to duel her. Lvl 2/3 invades wreck her as her sustain isn't the best. This matchup is extremely snowbally and you need to make sure it snowballs in your favor. Read her ganks and countergank accordingly, she drops fast as she's pretty squishy. Her 1v1 potential is insane, don't even think you can win 1v1 before 6. At 6, try to burst her with blindmonkrkick.png stun or blindmonkrkick.png her out of kindredR.png. If she gets rolling, you're done for.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

OP

VS

Malphite

Medium

VS

Master Yi

Medium

Outscales extremely hard, potent duelist with just 3715.png. You can easily snowball your lanes harder than he can, and you can invade him during first clear because it isn't that healthy. He can use alphastrike.png to dodge your blindmonkqone.png or blindmonkeone.png, so be careful. If you land blindmonkqone.png you usually win early game. At 6 remember to use blindmonkrkick.png for a guaranteed blindmonkqone.png and you should win every time. If he gets 3931.png, he starts to destroy everyone. Use your blindmonkrkick.png to peel him off your team. Control dragons/scuttles to deny devourer stacks.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Mostly skill based matchup. She farms faster than you but you can beat her 1v1 if you land blindmonkqone.png. The matchup snowballs very hard in both ways, but lee with just 1412.png can 1 shot nidalee if blindmonkrkick.png is up. Care for lvl 2 invades. After the nerfs she isn't that scary anymore and farms a lot slower. You should destroy her 1v1.

VS

Nocturne

Medium

Amazing duellist that beats you 1v1 every time with nocturneduskbringer.png and nocturneshroudofdarkness.png to block your abilities. However he is not that good in teamfights. Avoid fighting 1v1, be wary of his counterganks with nocturneparanoia.png. Look to counter HIS ganks instead, he will use nocturneshroudofdarkness.png when ganking and that's your chance to unload everything on him. Spam ping your team if they're being dumb and farming solo vs this guy.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

He beats you in a straight 1v1 early. His farming speed is terrible, if he doesn't get good ganks off he becomes even more useless than you. Be ready to countergank. At 6 you can beat him 1 on 1 if you hit everything because he doesn't have pantheon_grandskyfall_jump.png for combat while you have blindmonkrkick.png. Spam ping your team if you think they're gonna get ulted on, if this guy doesn't get anything done early he won't do anything mid-late either.

VS

Poppy

Hard

This champ is BS. She interrupts your blindmonkqone.png and blindmonkwone.png with poppyparagonofdemacia.png. You can never 1v1 her. If she hits a poppyheroiccharge.png stun, you just die. Her base dmgs are strong and she can easily burst you. Avoid her and gank other lanes.

VS

Rammus

Medium

Tanky and outscales you hard. Need to snowball early, either by invading or snowballing your lanes, or both. His early ganks are strong and if he gets rolling you're done for. Before 6 it's hard to kill him because of defensiveballcurl.png, and at 6 he can beat you easily withdefensiveballcurl.pngpuncturingtaunt.pngtremors2.png, it's enough damage to kill a lee that isn't tanky yet. Gets worse very lategame when carries get qss, just be wary if he gets good ganks off.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

Very common matchup. She beats you 1v1 at every point in the game assuming equal gold, but she is very weak to lvl 2 invades (she only has reksaiW.png and reksaiQ.png, plus she typically gets low) Get 1412.png and make some plays, your QRQ with red smite is still amazing for counterganking. Lategame she is just a tank, you have more utility.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Ban this champ if you play in high elo. If you facecheck into a bush when he has 5 ferocity he can wreck you. His early clear his weak and easily invadeable though. Land a Q and he doesn't have 5 ferocity? You wreck him. Countergank his rengarR.png ganks at 6, he is squishy and you can easily one shot him. You need to win early or he will snowball and end the game through his insane assassination potential lategame. You CANNOT give this guy any kills, he will solo carry the game. Very very annoying champ.

VS

Rumble

Easy

Free kills. Beware of rumblecarpetbomb.png + countergank.

VS

Sejuani

Easy

She used to be op a long time ago, but now she's easy. Pretty low damage and if you have 1408.png to her 1409.png you can destroy her before she gets tanky. She becomes a problem at lvl 6 when she gets sejuaniglacialprisonstart.png. Always be ready to countergank and spam ping your laners if you think they're about to get ganked by her. Get stuff done, counter jungle, counter gank, get scuttles, drags, etc, because she will outscale you.

VS

Shaco

Medium

Careful of his lvl 2 invade. Put down wards for the invade ALWAYS against a shaco. If he comes leave your buff and let him start it, then kill him. His dueling potential is good if he takes 14.png, which most shaco players do. You can always beat him 1v1 in a fair fight, but if you blindmonkqone.png into a jackinthebox.png fear you are done for. Try to find out where he's ganking and counter him, he has no escape and is squishy (no 4.png too, usually)

VS

Shyvana

Medium

Scary if she farms up a storm and picks up a kill or 2. If you build 1412.png and she has 1416.pngonly  you can beat her 1 on 1 with QRQ. However, once she gets items you will never be able to duel her again. Snowball your team and peel her off your carries late. Control dragons/scuttles to deny devourer stacks. She is kinda useless lategame tbh with no CC.

VS

Trundle

Hard

His trundleQ.png makes him a strong duelist and if he's good, he can interrupt your 2nd part of blindmonkqone.png of his trundleE.png. His trundleR.png  makes him an extremely strong front line. Never duel this guy, he's too tanky and does too much damage at every point in the game. Snowball your lanes and kite him late or it's GG.

VS

Udyr

Medium

Outduels you and outfarms you. As always you can invade if he doesn't see you coming. Use your mobility to pick your fights. If he goes udyrtigerstance.png and 1412.png he can kill you VERY easily.

VS

Zac

Medium

He has weak 1-4 and you can really mess him up if you catch him ganking one of your laners. You can also invade him early on and contest scuttles but be careful of enemy laners. Do not fall behind and let him powerfarm or gank everywhere while you do nothing, get stuff done. Counter jungle, countergank, keep up in lvls, do everything. Don't get hit by his zacE.png as you'll be squishy early and enemy laners can mess you up while you're knocked up. Use your high damage and mobility to win skirmishes. Do NOT fall behind vs this guy, you will have a tough time.

How to Gank Back to Top

When ganking with lee, you almost always want to lead with a ward hop, auto to apply red buff, and blindmonkeone.png for the slow. Then, you can land your Q easily, or just keep autoing them if they're already low to wait for their flash. If your laner has a CC you can wait for them to use it and then throw your undefined.png.


An extremely strong thing to do that every jungler should implement into his gameplay is LANE GANKING. Lane ganking is extremely powerful, if your laner is a little bit pushed you can just walk in through lane. Landing blindmonkqone.png is now much easier because they won't know you're there. Alternatively, you can tell your laner to bait, then blindmonkwone.png onto him and follow up. This works especially well in top and bot lane because of the bushes, but it can work mid lane too if your laner has a CC spell or if they're about to get dived.

At 6, your ganking potential improves greatly. Sometimes if you get behind the enemy, you can wardhop kick into your laner. This should be a guaranteed blindmonkqone.png as blindmonkrkick.png stuns them. You can also go for a classic insec, blindmonkqone.png into a ward hop to kick them into your team.

Lee Essentials Back to Top

The Ward Hop

One of the most important things a Lee player should learn is the ward hop. Use your blindmonkwone.png to jump to a ward(which is why you build 2049.png on Lee) You should have smartcast enabled, it makes wardhopping 10x easier and faster. Practice makes perfect.

Efficiently Clearing Jungle Using leesinpassive.png

Look at leesinpassive.png. This is what makes Lee's jungle clear not garbage. Ideally you want to auto attack between each ability activation, so it would look something like blindmonkqone.png AA, AA, blindmonkqone.png AA, AA, blindmonkwone.png AA, AA,blindmonkwone.pngAA,AA.

Kick Uses

You should know that your blindmonkrkick.png is a stun. Well, what does this mean? This means that if you blindmonkrkick.png someone, you have a guaranteed Q on them as long as you don't mess it up. This is extremely important to know for skirmishes, it's infinitely safer getting guaranteed damage off than trying to hit your blindmonkqone.png and missing.

Another thing you want to make use of is your blindmonkqone.png execution damage. It does 8% of the missing enemy's health. An ideal combo if you want to one shot a squishy is blindmonkqone.pngblindmonkeone.png,blindmonkrkick.png blindmonkqone.png, It's sometimes better to blindmonkqone.pngblindmonkrkick.pngblindmonkqone.png if you're low and need to finish someone quickly.

Something very important Back to Top

Please do not play lee like he doesn't need any farm at all. REMEMBER TO FARM. Why farm? Because an underfarmed lee is very useless and does nothing. You NEED to farm even if your lategame is bad to keep up the pressure and to be a threat on the map. Of course you should apply pressure but REMEMBER TO FARM, it's very important and i'm tired of seeing all these underlevelled lees who fall off earlier than they should. A farmed lee who picked up a couple of kills can be extremely effective in the midgame, where he has warrior + some tank stats so that he can destroy squishies while being a bit durable. Don't be afraid to farm if you truly think that's your best option. Your level 6 opens up a lot of ganking opportunities and towerdives. Getting a fast lvl 6 can win you the game. Don't steal farm from your lategame carries though, of course.

Misc Back to Top

Right now I am low diamond trash, but I used to be good (took a break and now just getting back into this)
