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.
This guide is generally geared toward newer players. If you've played Master Yi before then you know, it's about what you can do in a short amount of time.
This is the perfect guide for you if you're between level 1 and 12. As you progress passed these levels, you may find better ways, but this is by-far the best build that I've created personally.
** THIS IS NOT A FULL GUIDE **
This guide is not fully complete, it is meant for players between 1 and 12. Though can be very effective at higher levels.
It is an effective build, if it may not look like it at first.
Buy a dagger for the attack speed and a healing potion just in case.
Follow up with the Berserker Greaves and purchase a Vampiric Scepter.
Now buy a BF Sword and finish the set with The Blood Thirster. (60+40 Damage & 15%+10% Life steal. Trust me on this one. It works.
Once you have The Blood Thirster purchase a Cloak of Agility, Pickaxe, and another BF Sword.
Finish up the recipe with Infinity Edge.
After you have your Infinity Edge, continue buying Zeal > Phantom Dancer, three times over.
And don't forget to buy Healing & Mana Potions throughout the game as needed.
You can view above for the End-Result stats.
With this item build, I have soloed Baron with Master Yi. ( AT LEVEL 18 DO NOT TRY BEFORE THEN! )
Creeping / Jungling
Start out the match in the jungle, take out a smaller neutral like the Wraths or the Wolves, then continue to your lane to farm xp and gold, once you reach level 3, you should be able to buy the Berserker Greaves, then it's back into the Jungle, at level 3, getting blue buff is good, make sure you have Smite & a Healing potion. By level 3, you should have +1 point in Alpha Strike, Wuju Style, & Meditate. You're going to need Meditate in the Jungle for healing.
When you have blue buff, you can leave the jungle for a bit and go back to your lane to level for your Ultimate (Highlander).
It's good to go back to the Jungle occasionally to farm gold or buffs.
Farming is a must once you have The Blood Thirster, for every one kill you get, your overall Attack damage goes up by 1, and your Life Steal percentage goes up 0.25%.
Once you've reached about 7.50%-8.00% bonus Life Steal and a bonus 30 or so damage, you're ready to go solo the dragon for the free coins in which it gives.
