LeeSiη [12.22 - Preseason]
Updated for patch: 12.19
For the people who are already in champ select:
Quick Lee Sin Lethality Jungle Build
Best Overall Build
For the people who want to learn more about the build:
Those are the runes I recommend. Electrocute is the go-to rune for this build and is just overall the better choice over for example Dark Harvest since you dont have to stack it and can benefit from it early on. Still, depending on your likings you can change Relentless Hunter for Treasure Hunter & Triumph for Legend: Tenacity.
What you skill frst mainly depends on at which camp you start / which route you take. If you start at red buff I would always go W->E->Q. If you start at blue buff you can either go W->Q->E or Q->W->E. (Example Paths shown below)
- Red Buff
- Blue Buff
At what camp you start and which route you take mainly depends on the given jungle and lane matchups. Which lane do I have to gank early? Which lanes cannot be ganked before they have their ultimates? Do I want to shadow the enemy jungler to countergank or do I want to avoid him at all cost? You should ask yourself those and other questions in champ select/ while the loading screen.
Red Buff clear (W->E->Q):
Blue Buff clear (W->Q->E or Q->W->E):
Itemization depends heavily on the enemy team. Therefore you have to adapt the build to the given situation. Enemy team consists of mosty AA champs like Viego and Lucian but have a heavy burst AP mid like Syndra? Better go Plated Steelcaps for boots and Maw of Malmortius 3rd item. Items that suit assassin Lee Sin well are listed below.
- The main item
- 3rd item
The rest of the build is pretty situational and varies from game to game. I nearly always go Serylda's Grudge but if they have like a lot of healing/CC/... you just pick the item which is best under the given circumstances.
- 4th/5th item
Dude you play Lee Sin, 6th item doesn't exist like Cassio boots...
- 6th item
Hey guys! Lee main here.
Do you also hate the current state of Lee right now were you are simply not able to punish the enemy ADC who is splitting all by himself, or contest that sweet scuttle crab because the enemy JGL will simply destroy you? What if I told you that there actually is another way?
After struggling myself and a lot of testing, me and some other Lee mains came up with the build shown in this guide. We tested a lot of runes and builds to achieve the most consistent rune and build path.
If you have any kind of input for the guide please let me know, you can find me on discord:
Or join me and the other Lee mains on the official Lee Sin Mains discord (created by r/LeeSinMains). (Just type @IDS at the end of the question so I see it.)
Not your typical LeeSiη player.
