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.
I am a 15 year old canadian noobie to LOL. I ended up making this build with Yi and figured i should post it. So here it is: Master Yi: CCC1000
- Red Important skills or segments of the guide
- Orange Less important then red but still semi important.
- Yellow Less. important then orange but should still be noted.
How To Use
Alpha strike is master Yi's go to farm skill. Throughout the game use this skill to farm minions. It can also be used to demolish the enemy champions, although not as strong as it would be in an ap Yi build. You can use this skill to get up close to your target and then destroy him with ur heavy atk damage.
Yi's meditate can allow him to stay in a lane for a long time. I like to pick up the blue buff if there's no jungler on my team. That way I can just meditate if I get low hp. Meditate can also be used to tank if there's no other way to survive. Meaning you can use Yi to bait.
This is a great skill to activate when chasing a targeted champion. It can boost your atk by up to 30 damage at level one. It also has a pretty sweet passive. I would suggest buying this skill early on if your going to be going for kills.
Your going to want to use Highlander a lot. With your Highlander ability you can increase your already huge atk speed. With this atk speed boost you can deal massive damage due to your high crit hit chance and high base damage.
Support And counters
Champion That Work Well With Master Yi
Kayle is a great support to go with Master Yi mainly because of her Reckoning Skill. It slows the champion she uses it on. So Yi can easily secure the kill. With his movement speed he should have no problem catching up any slowed champion.
Amumu is another great champion to go alongside with Yi. Due to his "Curse of the Sad Mummy" skill which stuns champions in a long range all around Amumu.(can stun a whole team) This stun allows Yi to get multi kills. Bandage toss also can secure kills for Yi.
Champions Who Counter Master Yi
Warwick can counter master Yi with his "Infinite Duress". Due to the suppression Yi can not fight back. Although if you survive Warwicks suppression you might be able to make a comeback. It is good to get armor or high hp instead of a second bloodthirster if you think there is a threat of Warwick suppressing you and snatching up an extra kill.
People generally think that high armor on a tanky champion can counter yi. But.... If you pick up some armor penetration like a black cleaver, a last whisper or a Youmuu's Ghostblade You can make short work out of any tank.
Shout Outs And What Not
First off this is not the end of the Master yi:ccc1000 build. I will make sure to work on the build and update it when i feel like it should be updated so stay tuned.
