Lee Sin... How do you top lane?

#1joethehobo5Posted 1/28/2013 9:34:35 AM
Just got Lee Sin and he is super fun so far (dat Q harass) but I'm having trouble building him. Most people jungle him, but I'm no good at jungle. How should O build him top lane? Usually I max out his Q then his E and only use his W for escapes. And I usually just buy AD or Health (Ice Mallet or Bloodthirster usually first.) What am I doing wrong?

q first
2 points in e because the slow is horrible at lvl 1
then w

start 2xwards then hp pots
if you are doing fantastic rush a bt
decent brut
if none of the above you lost lane and it doesn't matter because lee sin is a early to mid game champ

optimal build is
BC/LW*more than 100 armor lw less bc*

Max W for sustain, farm and push for the first 10 minutes. Keep a ward in the river and pay attention to it. Build him like jungle lee sin sans machete items, unless you want wriggles.

Congratulations! You are an agile immovable object.

Depends on who the match up is against.

I do Q, W, E all to lvl 1 in that order. Then either Q or W depending on the matchup. You can tell by level 3 if there going to be aggressive or passive also.

Never max Q first in lane. Lee's laning power comes from sustaining with W or out DPSing the enemy with E.

It's matchup dependent what skills you max, but a good rule of thumb is you go R>Q>W>E against squishy top laners or champs who can't deal with Lee's harass and R>W>Q>E against either tanky tops or tops with sustain so you aren't forced out of lane.

I'd assume maxing Q first is okay mid but definitely not solo top. You want E or W up there.
