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.
Hello. :) My Name´s Antipwn and I´m proud to present to you:"Master Yi - A Germans Guide"
So, basically this Yi is an Endgame Build. With its Runes, and Masteries, its.. well.. fine in the beginning, but is going to be awesome in the endgame, you´ll notice.
For me, it´s the best build because of my "HELLO! IM JOHNNY KNOXVILLE AND WELCOME TO JACKASS!" Playstyle, so, if you are searching for a Guide that you play defensive in the beginning and in endgame like johnny knoxville himself,
This is the Guide for you.
"Why is he going for Attack Speed?" likely you are asking this yourself right now... well see it that way:
Build -> endgame, fastpaced rushing.
Runes -> endgame, fastpaced rushing.
I know it looks bad, but if it doesn´t fit you, Attack Damage should work aswell, play a little around, im not saying that this is the ultimate Guide, just that I like it that way and I would like to show other players the way I play.
and now, we´ll come to the Items.
I´ll start off with Doran´s Blade, because of Lifesteal and Damage, that is going to push you a little bit further to a faster level up, because obviously you can kill Minions and "Jungle-Enemys" faster.
Second Item would be the Dagger that brings you to Berserk Shoes.
You could choose between the Boots of Speed and the Dagger, I always take Dagger, because i´m very Attack Speed oriented. If you want a higher Run Speed in the beginning - take the Boots of Speed.
Than again Dagger, this is a MUST BUY, because you dont really need Critical Strike in Beginning. Next you´ll buy Zeal, you know the drill: more Attack Speed; 6x Movement Speed Multiplier.
again Dagger, next Phantomdancers -> more Attack Speed;Critical Strike 30; 12x Movement Speed Multiplier.
If you got this far, you are now officially invited to play Aggressive.
your next big Goal is Yomuu´s Ghostblade, so take on the next smaller step: Brutalizer.
Why? Well, because of the higher Attack Damage of +25 and the lower Cooldown by 10%.
After Brutalizer, as Already said, Yomuu´s Ghostblade is on. -> +30 Attack Damage, Cooldown Reduction 15% and the big deal: 15 Armor Penetration. to get you a little more extra Damage. ;)
Then, we´ll come to the Recurve Bow. 40 Attack Speed.
Then, next Big Goal: Ionic Spark: 50 Attack Speed and this little extra I like to call "Lighting Bolt, mutha****a!" to get you a faster lvl up and faster money, if you want to jungle afterwards or kill some minions.
And now the Final Item: Tiamat. If YOU don´t need it, change it. I like to take it because of the Extra Damage, but it´s your thing. ;)
Skill Sequence; pretty easy to tell why I take Wuju Style first.
Attack Speed Oriented Guide.
Wuju Style passively gives you more Attack Damage.
secondly you want to take Alpha Strike, to conter the enemy Champions, but remember: play defensive in the beginning, so do not rush. ;)
alternate between these two in beginning, and when you can skill your Ultimate, you can slowly start to play more aggressive.
As said in the last Chapter, if you got your Phantomdancers, you can know easily attack enemy Champions, but beware, one at a Time. Firstly activate your Ultimate, than Wuju Style and Finally set the first Hit with Alpha Strike, but keep your eyes on your Passive Skill, if you got your seventh hit on minions or Champions, the next one (the eighth) will count double time.
