Threats to Master Yi with this build

Threat
Low
High
Show all
Threat Champion Notes
2
Amumu Amumu relies on ganking alot or he will fall behind.He simply cannot risk to counter jungle you,although it could happen,dodge his q and walk away.
2
Warwick Surprisingly,Warwick is actually very weak and cannot stop you from farming,just do not feed him and get a early qss and you should be good.If you are good with timing you dont even need it.

Thunderlords is a option if you decide to go very aggrisive early game.

Runes

Runes

Greater Mark of Attack Speed
9

Greater Seal of Armor
9

Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
6

Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction
3

Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
3
AS Quints and Runes-It gives speeds your early clear up,by reducing the CD of Alpha faster.
Armor Yellows-To get you pass the tough jungle area
CD-enough CD to Meditate 2-3 times during the first clear and between buffs.

Why not AD reds then?
I have tried it you take at least 100 more damage and around 10 second slower than going AS.

Items

Guinsoos is currently one of the best item to get on AA base champ,with Gunblade you can heal quite a bit from the aoe ,and it also heals from the true damage of Wuju style

Deathcap,Zhonyas act as a buffer to increase the healing for W,I love Zhonyas as it allows me to enter invaunerable for longer time during a fight and wait for my alpha

The Bork Build focuses on decimating the carries and put out as much damage as possible so thats why mainly it is so damage heavy,BloodThirster is only advice when they have a tanky ADC(Graves,Urgot)

For the Tank Build you just go in and tank the damage while putting out quite a bit,also you can holder longer with your meditate as it heals ur MISSING HEAlTH

Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

You should be able to finish the full clear


Back grab your items and continue.Look out for low enemy or lanes with good hard CC


Guide Top

Jungling against The big Threats

Against these terrors,try to take an awkward route,


like golems->red->wolfs->Blue->wraiths->Gromp


You want to avoid them as hard as possible until you get your jungle item or hit 6.

But against ,if she is quite low,turn on her,and remember to use your meditate as soon as she uses her spider Q,that will be your killer,so negate that and you win.

Tips and Tricks-Combos that you need to break their team's mentality

There are certain combos or just tricks that some expereienced yi players know,while some just play him into 1v5 and die.


The Alpha dodge timing


Very simple all you need is to time your alpha strike to a coming cc or burst.This can work for Syndra's Ultimate,Veigar's Ult,Taric stun.


Meditate block and AA reset


Similar to Alpha,your W has the effect of NEGATING of 70% damage.Thats alot.And it can act as an aa reset.Use ur w at the instance the damage spell comes,for the block.
Use it to stutter your animation to aa reset


Save Meditate only when they blew all the hard CC,as if your meditate is canceled it shortens your lifespan in teamfights and DPS by alot


Guide Top

Decision Making

You need to look at the map,is there anyone low,if not farm.


In Teamfights,alot of Yi loves to jump into their whole team and die,thats not how you carry,always lie back until the damage carries use their their damage skill or is focusing others,while their front line is thin.Use this and go in.


I cannot pinpoint you in every situtaion and it all relies on you,Im just giving you a general way to play Yi in teamfights
