Introduction

Welcome to my first champion guide! Here I will be showcasing my build for Master Yi, with which I can solo the dragon at level 6 and solo Baron at level 18, finishing with more health than when I started.


Guide Top

Spells

These are obvious choices. Teleport for better ganks, and Smite because without it, you would be a terrible jungler.


Guide Top

Items

The life steal items allow you to basically become immune to jungle monsters. This includes Baron and the dragon. As long as your ultimate is active, you can solo both of them with ease.
The increased critical chance and attack speed make you devastating in ganks, more chance to crit, and more hits that may crit.


Guide Top

Runes

These are all designed to complement the critical hit chance. More attack speed for more chances to crit, and more attack damage so your basic and critical strikes do lots more damage. You could swap the regular damage out for critical damage.It may leave you a bit too reliant on crits, but it can work.


Guide Top

Masteries

These are mostly focused on doing a lot of damage and fast. The "Executioner" bonus will be great for finishing enemy champions that get away from the main laners.

Defeating Epic Monsters

The Dragon

To defeat the dragon on level 6, all you need to do is have all your skills ready, have 2 Smite spells charged and have the Skirmisher's Sabre: Cinderhulk.
  1. Basic-attack.
  2. The Dragon will knock you back.
  3. Activate R, E, and target the Dragon with Q.
  4. The Dragon will continuously basic-attack you.
  5. Use Smite on the Dragon as often as possible
  6. If the Dragon knocks you back, use your Q to get back in.
  7. If you lose too much health, use your W.
There! The dragon should be dead!

Baron Nashor
You'll need the full build to kill Baron Nashor.
  1. Activate R, E, and target Baron with Q.
  2. You should heal enough from your life steal to endure any of Baron's attacks. So just keep spamming Q and Smite as much as possible
That's it! You just soloed Baron Nashor, and should have more health than when you started!

Pros/Cons

Pros:
  • Master Yi's skills cool down very fast, so you can clear a whole jungle in minutes, assuming you don't run into a group enemy champions on your own.
  • Once you get both Life Steal items, you become almost invincible to minions and monsters.
  • With all that critical hit chance, combined with Master Yi's E and R, you can kill tanks in just a few hits.
Cons
  • You're quite squishy until you get the life steal items, so refrain from ganking ADCs and the like until you do, unless you know that they're at a disadvantage.
