Introduction

Ok so first off here i just wanted to say, this is my first guide ever made. It is a good guide (you decide if not) but ive been using it for my MasterYi and well ive never done too bad. Also If i messed up anywhere above sorry i will explain again my choices below and why so thanks in advance who decide to read.

Basicly if you dont know Yi he is great. Point made, he starts out pretty well but can be killed if ganked early on. Later in game Yi becomes a monster wwho is feared by a lot of people. A fed Yi is a happy Yi.=)

PS: Please dont trolololol the guide voting you dislike or like vote legitimately, i want to see if my guide sux or not. thnx

Runes

Basicly the runes are simple,
For your mark get 9Greater Mark of Alacrity
For your seal get 9Greater Seal of Vitality
For your glyph get 9Greater Glyph of Potency
For your Quintessence get 3 Greater Quintessence of Wisdom

Pretty simple. Well for me atlest, ok so first off Yi is a very fast champion, so you want the attack speed runes, Yi loves attacking fast. Next the health runes, you want these so you are not as squishy as you normally are they give you a slight boost that really helps. Next the glyphs, the aility power can be traded for something else if you want more attack speed its just a little ability power can give your abilities a little more boom, also erally helps with the healing from meditation. Lastly the quintessence, finally these will give your Yi a 6% exp gain boost it doesent sound like a lot but since Yi needs to level in order to take on enemy champs fast the exp will come faster.

Masteries

Okay so here you want to go offense because the attack damage masteries dont effect your abilities? Umm what? You want this because it affects your auto attack/ basic attack meaning you will be more powerfull early game, and later when your attacking a champ running. After you want a little heath, why? Because health always helps health keeps you alive and a living Yi, is a happy Yi.=)

Skill Sequence

Ok so this is really simple,
first off get alpha strike its your main attack, it starts battles and ends them. You want to max this asap, so i believe i did it right above but im not sure sooo.
Get alpha strike every time its available (unless your ult is available) get wuju style as a secondary skill, but get medetate once for some healing. If your worried about dying because you are up agains someone who can kill you in 3 hits get medetation instead of wuju style. You always want to be getting alpha strike as fast as possible though.


Guide Top

Farming

Yi is a good farmer and needs to do it for awhile until he hits about level 9 or so once you have alpha strike maxed and wuju about 2-3. Then you can rush turrets or go for kills. After Yi is fed or has farmed dozens of minons your ready to go fight and obliterate all!
