I'm saving IP for my second 6300 champion, at the moment I've got two in mind but I can't decide which one to take. Lee Sin seems really interesting, it also is a decent jungler. How useful is him in team fights? Is he any viable at all? Does he fit most team compositions? Should I buy it over Ezreal?

I'd appreciate if an experienced Lee Sin player could answer, I don't want to waste my IP.

Lee Sin is a great buy. He's effective all the way up the ELO ladder, fulfills a multitude of rolls, and is probably the most fun champ to play (imo). As a disclaimer to that, however, he is one of the more difficult champs to master. Having 7 abilities to choose from is his advantage AND disadvantage considering you only have 100 energy.

If you can learn him, you will not regret it. There are some great guides on here for Lee Sin, i suggest checking them out and making your decision then.

I personally think Ez is more fun but having a good Lee Sin really shows and the enemy usually has to do something about it.

i have bought more than half of the champions in the game and i can honestly tell you for lee sin i never regretted it. the guy is just amazing and his chuck norris kick is just the tip of the ice berg of the depth of lee sin. ezreal is so squishy that a lee sin could easily destroy him . lee sin procs first Q -> ezreal blinks away -> lee sin procs second Q -> suddenly the ezreeal has no escape and is point blank with lee sin. the guy is just amazing and i think you have greatly underestimated his jungling. i can honestly tell you that i have played all junglers and lee sin is hands down the best followed by gp and noct. every1 says lee sin takes alot of skill to play but i guess he fits my play style perfectly because when i got him i went into a ranked (test him out) and i completely smashed the enemy team solo. 1400 elo. i now have 70% win rate on Lee Sin which is pretty good for me and im still learning new things to do with him. if you like junglers then lee sin is a must to add to your arsenal. if you like top solo lee sin is to add to your arsenal. if you like to play fun champions lee sin is to add to your arsenal. if you want a champion which is hard to master but you will not regret lee sin is your blind man.

just to through it out there TheOddOne predicts a lee sin nerf soon so you should get him soon

worth it, a very strong champion that has a lot of AD burst that ppl dont see it coming. Also one of the strongest level 2 ganker if you are jungling. He's kinda like akali with the way he jumps around in a fight. its like im lee sin ill Q to your face E then W ( shield ) out, or Q to your face E twice for that slow then R you to my teammates. GG

you can play him at tanky dps or just raw damage. people seem to like the warmog atmas build on him but really that build works for any melee champs.

so if you do play him the build should be wriggles if you are jungling of course
trinity force, warmog, atmas, merc treads, banshee. if you arent jungle your 6th item can be w/e you want you can even troll with a death cap if you like.

this build is just retardly good becuz you will have over 100 MR and Armor while having 3k + hp and 200 + AD

Never buy before try, because Lee Sin can take some time to get used to. Same with the case of Ezreal.

He's free this week.

Lee Sin is probably too good. He'll probably get a nerf.

Yea, Lee Sin definitely is viable as solo lane, duo lane, and jungle. Just so versatile and excels at all the roles. I just can't say the same for Ezreal. Ez in the jungle, hmm, maybe not...

NukeLover did, but you never know if others are in a similar situation and are too shy to ask themselves.

lee sin is like lee WIN. But seriously, he is like 1st ban or 1st pick in competitive play sooooo i think that means something. I use to jungle and i personally think he is the best jungler atm. It is almost like getting free ELO haha.

6 months ago maybe yeah

He's like good if you can snowball. He's not one of those champions that will be good every game because they will be games where your teammates simply suck at following ganks, play way too defensively while you need to snowball early game, etc. He's good but there are much better, safer junglers than him (no I don't mean junglers that can't be countered, I mean junglers that will be useful regardless of whether you snowballed early or not AKA gp5 junglers).

Dat necrobump. To be fair, if your team sucks at following ganks, you're fucked as a jungler and possibly as ANYTHING except ADC. I think Lee Sin top is the most ridiculous champion I've ever had the misfortune to play against. Heavy sustain W lee sins cannot be beaten. I don't think a good Lee Sin will lose any lane to any laner. Biggest phagg0t in existence, that's putting it lightly.

Kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything and have no regrets. Life's too short to be anything but happy.

what do you play more. Ezreal would be good cus he is one of the best carrys early to late game and works with mostly anything. lee sin is also good but you need to be a really good lee sin cus he is mean't to win the early game and give your team the lead. he is one of the best jungles you have to be good at ganking and counter jungling. But he falls off end game. Both champs take skin but for lee you need to be more experience with him to win games and if your good with him you will most likely win all your games same with Erzeal but more with lee sin since you can control the whole map if you jungle takes less skill to use him top, hes better in the jungle. Diamondprox really good lee sin and wins all his games with lee. depends on what you play more i pefer for you to buy Ezreal unless you want to master lee sin.

Lee Sin top is easily beaten by a decent Olaf for example
