AP and Ad Yi?

I have seen him played both ways and see pros and cons to both. AD Yi doen't get as powerful a Q or W, while AP Yi doesn't make full use of his R, and regular attacks suffer. This is my first guide, I won't even log in ^.^; It is nowhere near complete, and that's why I'm bringing it here to get suggestions, feed back, and maybe some flames and lulz but this has worked for me countless times.
Not a whole lot to say in explanation other than my purchase order, I like to build avarice blade first to maximize my gold intake, and turn it into the impaler as late as possible. the boots can be broken up and, and the big AP items bought before completing, but either way this build is about stacking AP early for harassment value of the Q, and laning value of the W. The AD comes after you have a good chunk of life to turn into AD with the impaler, and after that the phantom dancer seals the deal.
I recommend trying this if you are a fan of Yi, it really makes him feel complete I.M.O., he's not overly fast or strong, but he's strong enough, fast enough, and has a lot of staying power.
