Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png is really good on 64.png. Personally too good to take over any other summoner spell.

11.png is a requirement for the jungle in S6.

I have seen people go 14.png11.png as this gives you almost guaranteed first blood but I feel like 4.png is too good not to take as you can engage, make plays, escape and the list goes on as there are so many more uses for 4.png .

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

12/0/18 or 0/12/18 is now the best choice, you can go Fury or Sorcery personal preference, Fury helps with clears, and Sorcery does more damage later on. Another thing you can change is Runic Affinity or Assassin. I like Assassin as I tend to invade and duel a lot and I give my blue buffs to my mid laner.

Maxing blindmonkqone.png first gives most damage

Maxing blindmonkwone.png or blindmonkeone.png depending on match up. If game is easy and ahead you can go for blindmonkeone.png for more damage but I still go blindmonkwone.png no matter what as changes in patch 4.14 removed the attack speed reduction from blindmonkeone.png. Taking  blindmonkeone.png  second will make you use more pots in your first clear. I'd max blindmonkeone.png  if I were really ahead ex. 5/0 and I was building 3074.png and other ad items.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Machete and 3 Pots, can also go refillable

Core Items

    Pick one. I like stalkers or skirmishers as I normally buy sightstone. Skirmishers for more sustained damage, stalkers for more burst. I've tried and seen Cinderhulk Lee Sin, not a good choice as you give up all of your early game pressure.
    Choose one depending on their team. Deadman's is a really good item if there team has decent amount of ad, gives movespeed, armor, hp and some nice damage. Banshees is also a good pick as you can worry about one less CC ability when your making those plays. Locket is a good buy if your support does not buy it, gives your team mr and yourself the active is also good in teamfights.
    Must buy if you did not get Trackers Knife. Do not upgrade it to Ruby until late or you have a lot of money and can afford it without affecting your build.
    Great Against AP heavy teams. Buy a Hexdrinker first and then finish the Maw after a tank item.
    Good AD items on Lee. Pick one up if you're ahead and want some damage. Will explain Hydra in Situational.
    Fun build. I use this in normals or when I want to do a lot of damage. I go trackers because I want extra slot for Maw
    build 1: against heavy ad team, can swap black cleaver for hydra or youmuu's.
    build 2: against heavy ap team.
    Build 3: Mixed Damage Team, Hydra if ahead otherwise black cleaver can take out banshees for sightstone if you don't buy trackers.

Situational Items

    Very strong on Lee but I don't buy this often as by the time you get this you have your full jungle item, boots and sightstone if you didn't get trackers. Hydra is an expensive item and you really want to get some hp and resists by this time.
    Good substitute for Deadman's Plate if they have attack speed champs and you feel you need you would benefit more from the attack speed slow and slow active.
    Decent choice against burst.

VS

Amumu

Easy

Counter jungle him as hard as you can. Can't fight you in the early game. Late game curseofthesadmummy.png and bandagetoss.png are really strong cc abilities.

VS

Ekko

Hard

Currently broken af. You can't fight him before or after 6 as he can negate your full burst with his ekkoR.png and his passive is so damn broken early.

VS

Elise

Medium

Dodge her eliseE.png. Try to get in front of her spiders or kill them as fast as you can as they can block your blindmonkqone.png3074.png is good against her as you can blindmonkeone.png3074.png and her spiderlings die. Go for a 3077.png early and finish 3074.png later. Be careful of her damage, she's really strong after 1414.png and 3116.png

VS

Evelynn

Easy

Easy. Invade level 1 just kill her at her buff. She has like 100-150 hp during her first clear after gromp or krugs and her pots haven't healed much yet.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium
blindmonkrkick.png when he crowstorm.png or when he is channeling. 9.png is a hard champ to invade as he has stupid sustain. You want to take his blue early as before he gets Runic Echoes hes kinda dependent on it.

VS

Fizz

Medium

Dodge his fizzmarinerdoom.png. He can dodge your blindmonkqone.png with his fizzjump.png or fizzpiercingstrike.png. Early invades can help you snowball harder than he does. TAKE HIS BLUE EARLY FIZZ IS VERY RELIANT ON MANA EARLY AS HIS fizzjump.png COSTS AROUND 100 MANA.

VS

Graves

Hard

Pretty broken even after nerfs. Don't play 64.png into him if possible. He can outdamage you at all points in the game with exceptions to level 1-3 when he misses his second gravesclustershot.png damage.

VS

Hecarim

Easy

Invade. Most 120.png players don't run 4.png. They go 12.png11.png ,  6.png11.png or 14.png11.png. If they go 14.png play safer when you invade don't go when you are below 50%HP. If they ran 12.png or 6.png then you can invade with lower HP. 120.png is garbage when behind so make sure to camp his jungle as he has no escape until 6.

VS

Jax

Medium

Stronger in a 1v1 situation. Try to catch him in his jungle pre-6 and don't fight him for sustained durations, go for trades as his passive is really strong.

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

NEVER FIGHT HIM WHILE ISOLATED. 

If you do you will get destroyed. He can 1 shot you at level 6 before you get tanky with his khazixE.pngkhazixQ.png3074.pngkhazixW.png AA Combo. blindmonkeone.png when he ults as he won't have time to get out of range. Early invades help as well as his isolation is not strong at levels 1-5. Pretty even matchup.

VS

Malphite

Medium

I don't know about this. You can't stop his ufslash.png and you can't kill him after his first back, hes too tanky. Try to level 2 cheese him if you can. Haven't play too much of this though.

VS

Master Yi

Medium

Wait for alphastrike.png before you blindmonkqone.png as he can dodge it. Try to blindmonkrkick.png him into your team as he is generally squishy. His meditate.png is pretty broken you can blindmonkrkick.pngult him out of it though. Now with the blindmonkeone.png nerfs its harder to fight him.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Don't really see him in the jungle. If you do just invade all the time. Make sure he can't stack with siphoningstrikenew.png and he becomes useless mid game. Don't drag game into late game he will demolish you as he will start farming lanes.

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Invade before he takes his nautilusanchordrag.png so around level 4. Very vulnerable early as he is not very tanky and doesn't have an escape as most 111.png put points in nautiluspiercinggaze.png and nautilussplashzone.png first as they can't gank on their first full clear. Take his blue and you'll be good.

VS

Poppy

Hard

Her poppyparagonofdemacia.png can block your second blindmonkqone.png cast and your ward hop with blindmonkwone.png. Invade before she gets poppyparagonofdemacia.png so around level 2 or 3 depending when she takes it. She has lots of CC, poppydevastatingblow.png slows, poppyparagonofdemacia.png knockups if you dash, poppyheroiccharge.png displaces and can stun, poppydiplomaticimmunity.png can mini stun or disengage. You can insec anyone with her poppyparagonofdemacia.png and if she doesn't have it she can poppyheroiccharge.png or poppydiplomaticimmunity.png you.

VS

Quinn

Hard

Dumb. She can blind you with quinnQ.png even though your're already blinded. HerquinnE.png is stupid as well as she just jumps away from all your abilities.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

Hard to invade because of her reksaiW.png 's Tremor Sense. She can see you while you are invading. Best to just be healthy while warding and looking for ganks or counter ganks.

VS

Rengar

Medium

Pretty easy just invade and get ahead early. When he ults just sit by your carries blindmonkeone.png and blindmonkqone.png to reveal if you can and blindmonkwone.png to whoever got jumped and  blindmonkrkick.png real quick to kick him off. If you can't shut him down early his late game is a lot better than yours and it will be difficult to control him.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

You can't fight her at all. She does more damage than you early, mid and late. Try to interrupt her shyvanatransformcast.png with your blindmonkrkick.png when your fighting which you shouldn't be doing. You can still win some fights if you outplay her but that's pretty hard considering all she needs to do is click on you with shyvanaimmolationaura.png on.

VS

Udyr

Hard

Even with all your mobility, 77.png can chase you down with his udyrbearstance.png. He also clears really freaking fast and it'll be hard to counter jungle him as his does stupid damage.

VS

Volibear

Hard

Brokenbear is pretty damn strong. His passive makes him unkillable early unless you took 14.png. He can flip you if you try to blindmonkrkick.png someone into your team and his volibearw.png does like half your health. Only choice is to try to kill the rest of his team as fast as possible.

VS

Warwick

Easy

Easy matchup. Hard to counter jungle as he has really high sustain and 1v1 strength. When teamfighting just blindmonkrkick.png whoever he infiniteduress.png to cancel it and put him away from your team. He has no gapcloser other than infiniteduress.png  so then your team can peel for your carries easily.

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

You can't really fight him unless you know his xenzhaocombotarget.png and xenzhaosweep.png are down. Early game is ridiculously strong 1v1. Try to counter gank and not let him get ahead because 5.png can 1v5 your whole team if he's ahead.

VS

Zac

Easy

Invade early and try to get help from mid or top lane as his zacpassive.png will take you longer to kill him allowing for his laner to come and help him. Cancel his zacE.png with ult if you can when he's trying to jump on your team. blindmonkrkick.png him when he zacR.png so he doesn't get the 5 man knockup.

Why pick Lee Sin? Back to Top

Looking at the matchups section 64.png has many and I mean a lot of medium difficulty matchups. He's not broken right now like 245.png or 104.png, not as tanky as 78.png or do as much damage as 11.png, so why pick him? Here's a list of Pros and Cons of 64.png


PROS

  • Early game pressure and damage
  • Extremely mobile with blindmonkwone.png and blindmonkqone.png
  • Fun to play (lots of potential outplays wait to happen)
  • Is tanky and does good damage
  • Good pick potential
  • Makes great montages and youtube videos
  • Can change a teamfight with his insec
  • Decent dueling ability

CONS

  • Highskill cap (takes some time to get down combos, insec and other mechanics you can do with him)
  • Hard to master (refer to highskill cap)
  • Bad 64.png's will be completely useless (refer to above)
  • Hard to play with high ping 100+
  • Somewhat falls off
  • If you get behind 64.png will be pretty useless

Lee Sin Montages Back to Top

These are not mine but other people who are I consider really good at 64.png. I personally believe Bubba Kush is one of the best 64.png players in the world alongside Gripex.
