Just picked up Lee Sin recently.

I can't decide whether to build him high dps or more tanky. Both seem to be plausible, but which is best?

Also, I've been leveling him Q -> W -> R -> E. Mixed results, really.

I've been using Merc/Ionian Boots and Brutalizer, followed by a Phage, as my core starter build for pretty much any game, and then tend to vary from there. I like to get the Sanguine Blade if I can, as well as Frozen Mallet

Does anyone have any tips to share on anything with him?

While that's all well and fine, I didn't choose him because I wanted a best/worst bruiser/carry/tank/whatever. I picked him because I'd always wanted to play him.

If you've got some constructive advice, that'd be cool, too.

R is an ulti, always lvl it first. And besides, Q>R>Q :P

There's no such thing as a bad bruiser, just bad players.

lee sin is strong, played well he can dominate games. That said he is more difficult than other champs that fulfill the same role simply because he has a skillshot for most of his damage, much like how a properly played zed does stupid damage but his skillcap is so high that almost no one plays him.

I'd say beyond doing q and r, leveling e or w first comes down to preference and what you need for that specific game. If you are bot laning, i'd level safeguard first for sure. playing vs an eve, e for sure. if your team is more of the pokey type, level w so you can jump in and back out easier, if your team is a hard engage comp, max e so you can get the aoe slow to help your team stick to the enemy.

general tips - just cause you land a q, doesn't mean you have to fly. Also, being right on top of someone q, r and then q to fly will do the most damage (well, technically q,aa, e,aa, r, q but who has time for that) use the q as the execute rather than the r, it seems a lot of people dislike when you kick someone to safety with 100 health... As far as build goes, i'm sure that there is someone that i've seen play him recently i just can't remember who. its been a while since i've played him so i don't want to steer you wrong there, but i can tell you that phage is a bit meh just because you already have a powerful slow. you will need a bit of durability though. sanguine blade is fine, maybe a randuins if you are dying? brutalizer is good, i'd probably get a last whisper in there too somewhere, and then other than that just tanky items, which are generally match dependent.
