Introduction

Hey, this is a guide for Master Yi. In my eyes he is all about speed and im showing my speed build for Yi. I consistently get awesome K/D spreads using this build which in turn causes the team to win. You will find that once you get one or two kills early on that its will snowball to you basically being fed.

Pros / Cons

Pros
- Extreme movement speed
- With Highlander its impossible to get ganked/caught/for the enemy to escape
- farming is extremely easy making gold easy
- good pusher
- good 1v1

Cons
- Bad team fight
- Relies heavily on early game and items
- Often first to be targeted

Runes

Basic AD carrier runes. Quint for speed boost.

Farming

Have to do this well. Last hitting early game is very important. Late game can just wail on them as you attack so fast your'e always last hitting.


Guide Top

Masteries

Pure attack damage. Taking some defense and utility as well for summoner spells mostly.

Items

Start with boots to help get early ganks on enemies that are playing it risky. Next is Zeal, i have tried many things in the 2nd item to get spot but i find Zeal pushes me ahead of the enemy in farming gold and just harassment. Berserker greaves are a must of course as its speed and attack spped which is what its all about. Phage doesn't have to be next if your'e extremely fed for example but i find it normally just ensures you stay alive mid game. From this point on wards its infinity edge for the damage then just spamming attack speed.
