Introduction

Master Yi is a champion that isn't really picked in high levels. However, in the right hands, he can become an unstoppable monster, capable of split push and good team fighting(assuming the enemy team doesn't focus him)

Also do note this is a laning Yi guide, this was done to help a friend who can't jungle Yi.
Build 1 is the main build shown above.
Build 2 is if you don't care about item builds.
Build 3 is for dunking nooblords.

PROS AND CONS

PROS:
High Attack Damage steroid
Gap closer on Alpha Strike, undodgeable, can dodge enemy attacks with right timing
Meditate mitigates huge burst damage
Great split pushing capability

CONS:
Squishy
High mana costs
No CC
Did I mention sneezing on him if he's glass cannon, he'll blow up?


Guide Top

Runes

I take Armor Penetration Reds and Quints. This helps boost damage a lot higher, enabling TONS OF DAMAGE(yes i went there).
Armor yellows may be subbed out for mana regen/5 because of Yi's outdated mana costs(shakes fist at Riot).
Magic resistance per level Blue is good for late game fights


Guide Top

Masteries

Masteries are 21/0/9. Standard.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Flash is your lifesaver. Always use it. Or a good way to chain up with Alpha Strike so you can catch up to the enemy and possibly get a kill.

Exhaust may be subbed out for Ignite/Teleport/Cleanse
Or smite if you're jungling.

Don't recommend ghost because of dimished returns on Ultimate.

Team Work

You have 2 choices with Master Yi. You can split push turrets as your team baits them in, or you can wait for the enemy to blow their CC and then jump in and murder everyone.


Guide Top

Items

Start with Boots and 3 Health Potions. Boots will build into Mercury Treads or Ninja Tabi according to enemy team.
Rush an Avarice Blade into a Ghostblade.
Next you can build a B.F. Sword into Infinity Edge, but after your BF Sword if you need defense, build Atmas Impaler and Warmogs Armor or a Banshee's Veil.

Other great items are Triforce, Phantom dancer, Last Whisper, SoTD(jax), Wits End, or Bloodthirster. Just make sure to maintain a good amount of defense!
