League of Legends Twitter has released their first teaser of a new Lee Sin skin. With the tagline of “Immortal sight cannot be obscured”, it would seem that this is the precedence for the next legendary skin. After several years, it would appear that our good old blind monk would finally be able to see.
The decision to give Lee Sin a legendary skin would not come off as unprecedented for many. After all, ever since his introduction to Summoner’s Rift, the Blind Monk has often seen play in all levels. Few champions have the luxury of having a loaded skillset combined with a good balance of stats to become one of the most versatile champions in the game. He is one of the champions that can go tanky or AD without entirely sacrificing attack for defense, along with several movement abilities and excellent initiation/peel. This has allowed Lee Sin to flourish particularly in the jungle, but throughout his history has also made appearances in the top and mid lanes in competitive play.
What future awaits Lee Sin once his one known handicap gets banished for good? Let us wait for further announcements from Riot Games.
