Master Yi Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Yi is a master pub stumper. He has massive AD steroids, and he is easy to play. Basically, he will stump any team as long u are significantly more skilled than they are.
He has terrible team fights, so he is mainly a split pusher. That means he is letting his team fight 4v5 in team fights while he is dismantling their base.
Also never fight 1v1, even if u are sure u can beat the other guy. Their team is (usually) right behind them! just take towers and win. Kills are simply a stepping stone to the objective not the objectives themselves -> towers are objectives. Many a noob will simply show their KD as proove of skill, and that is the best example of a noob that thinks that he/she is good, when obviously that they are nooblords.
ALSO farm everything on the map. When u get wriggles just go into the jungle. I know u cant last hit for ur life so jungling is much easier =_=. Then when u get PD and ghost blade just go kill every tower on map. Hopefully u are not stupid and will only get towers are that unprotected -> Hint
Since u are still lvl 10 =_=. it doesnt matter
But when u ever get to lvl 30 use the one i posted above.
The move quints are pretty expensive, but the rest arent, u can replace the move quints with Armor Pent Quints if u want.
Max Q first because Burst>sustain damage in lane
Then Max E next because its free damage
1 Point of W for lane sustain early game, max last. In this case, using a mana pot for W has better gold/Heal ratios, so getting mana pots is not a bad idea until u get Blue Buff.
Ur passive is OP as hell in Lane. When it gets to 7 stacks, Q to an enemy, press E, hit him, then back away. The passive with E active will destroy noobs without armor.
U might want to start dorans, idc. The extra HP will help. But Boots or cloth armor start with HP potions are better for lane sustain without wasting MANA on W. After first back, u should buy 1 or 2 Mana pots, because Q at higher lvls takes a lot of mana.
Stuff shown above. If u could ever get that fed. sell the ghost blade and the wriggles and get Last whisper and Blood thirster.
GA (guardian's angel) is recommended after finishing ur PD (phantom dancer) and GB (ghost blade)
Creeping / Jungling
Yeah go to the jungle after u finish Wriggles, use E only when u are killing the Buff Monsters and only when they are below half HP. Using E too early will simply decrease ur overall Damage.
Make sure to get the Red and Blue Buffs and then start pushing lane and ganking.
If u double kill their bot lane u can take dragon, make sure to make the bot lane come with u so u dont get killed by the dragon.
baron is impossible for u right now so forget about it.
Most noobs (like u) will use ignite for harass in lane so i dont recommend that u get it until u learn how to play better.
Use exhaust till then and then use flash when u finally get to lvl 12 =_=
If i ever get to around making it, i ll post a game for u to watch so that u understand what i am talking about in this guide.
