How to play Lee Sin


Lee Sin is a high mobility AD jungler. He has one of the best early games in terms of jungle clear and 1 vs 1 potential vs the enemy jungler, and has great early game ganks that you can take advantage of to snowball your lanes. He does fall off a bit when you get to the late game which is why you need to play an aggressive early game jungle playstyle to get an early advantage.

Lee Sin's Abilities


Flurry (Passive)

Lee Sin's abilities grant him bonus Attack Speed for 2 attacks within a few seconds. It's really important to make sure you use the Flurry passive to full effect when clearing the jungle. You will be able to stay healthy and clear the jungle a lot quicker. The first attack after using an ability restores energy and the second restores half of that amount.

Sonic Wave / Resonating Strike (1)

Lee Sin fires an energy wave that deals physical damage to enemies and reveals them. Hitting an enemy allows Resonating Strike to be cast within a few seconds. You can use Sonic Wave as your primary engage tool if you hit an enemy champion, but be careful before recasting Sonic Wave because you might put yourself in a difficult position that you can't get out of.

You can also use Sonic Wave to move around the jungle a lot quicker meaning you can clear the jungle faster than the enemy. Resonating Strike dashes Lee Sin to the marked enemy target dealing physical damage.

Safeguard / Iron Will (2)

Lee Sin dashes to a target location. If an enemy is nearby on arrival, Lee Sin shields himself for a few seconds and allows Iron Will to be cast within a few seconds. This is Lee Sin's main mobility and defensive tool. Safeguard's cooldown is reduced by just under a second with each attack.

This means you want to mainly use Safeguard at the start when clearing the jungle so you can use it multiple times to stay healthy and get the extra attack speed. Iron Will empowers the next two attacks to deal additional damage and gain physical and magic vamp.

Tempest / Cripple (3)

Tempest is an AoE ability that deals magic damage to nearby enemies and reveals them for a few seconds. Hitting an enemy allows Cripple to be cast within a few seconds. Cripple slows enemies hit by Tempest decaying over 4 seconds.

Dragon's Rage (Ultimate)

Lee Sin kicks an enemy champion dealing physical damage and knocking it away. Lee Sin can also deal damage to enemies that are affected by the kicked champion and knock them up as well for a second. Dragon's Rage is a great way to burst down an enemy target. You can use this at the start of a teamfight to knock an enemy into your team or at the end to finish off for the kill.

A basic but effective combo is using Sonic Wave and Resonating Strike to travel to the enemy, then use Safeguard to go behind the enemy so you can use Dragon's Rage to kick them right into your team.

Trinity Force

Plated Steelcaps - Protobelt

Lee Sin uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow him to deal damage and survive. Youmuu's Ghostblade is a great first item for Lee because it gives him a lot of Attack Damage and his passive allows him to move around the map a lot quicker. Trinity Force is another strong item for Lee Sin, it gives him much needed attack damage, heath and great passives that help him get more movement speed and damage.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Lee Sin is a fighter so he wants to get in enemies face and attack constantly whilst also using his spells. This means he can get stacks pretty fast, which allows him to get more damage on the enemies.

Brutal

This helps out Lee Sin in the early game get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and getting them early ganks off.

Hunter - Titan

With Lee Sin, you will be in a lot of fights and ganking a lot which means you will be getting plenty of takedowns. This allows Lee Sin to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.

Pathfinder

As a jungler you will be roaming around the map a lot, taking objectives and ganking lanes. Pathfinder gives you extra movement speed in brushes, jungle and river so you can move around the map a lot quicker to help your team.

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for that killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Help's you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


Lee Sin has a very fast early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle really fast and be aggressive when contesting the scuttle crabs in the rivers. It is best to start at Red Brambleback as you don't have mana and you don't lose a lot of health when jungle clearing. With Lee Sin, you want to make sure you make the best out of your passive, Flurry. Every time you use an ability, your next 2 auto attacks gain attack speed and return energy. Every basic ability for Lee Sin has 2 activates so it's best to press ability, auto twice, press ability, auto twice, and so on.


This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Red Brambleback
  2. Raptors
  3. Blue Sentinel
  4. Scuttle Crab 1 (In river)
  5. Scuttle Crab 2 (Opposite river)
  6. Gank or continue to farm jungle.

Below is a beginner's guide for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp. Epic monsters and more!:


Late Game


Lee Sin can struggle a lot in the late game. Your damage falls off really fast and you don't have a lot of teamfight crowd control. Your best way to go about the late game is trying to get a Dragon's Rage kick on an important target to kick them into your team. Your main objective as a jungler is to keep track of when Dragons, Rift Herald and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When in a team fight, try your best not to get caught out and try to keep auto-attacking and using your abilities to deal damage.

Conclusion


If you like an aggressive jungle playstyle and a champion that can use his early advantage to carry the team then Lee Sin is the go-to pick for you. He has a lot of mobility allowing him to jump over multiple walls and can make some really good flashy plays.
