Introduction

This guide is focused on being able to take a lot of physical damage by focusing armor so you are pretty much untouchable when using meditate, as well as healing about half your health after five seconds.

Skill Sequence

With Master Yi's skills i have taken meditate at level 1 and maxed it immediately to help with durability in lane. when not taking meditate or highlander i recommend taking wuju style because of the passive AD but alpha strike is not a bad choice for initiating fights.

Items

I have taken Berserk's Greaves to give early game movement speed to make Yi more mobile to help out struggling team mates or set up an early gank. Guardian Angel to give some armor and help with durability with it's passive or to annoy enemy champions trying to gank you. Phantom Dancer to give movement speed for mobility, attack speed and critical strike chance to clear minion waves quickly as well as getting champions quickly before they run away. Infinity Edge for AD and critical strike. Thornmail for armor to help with durability and to make you nearly invulnerable when using meditate and thanks to it's passive damage enemy champions who try to get you when you are using meditate. And finally Zhonya's Hourglass for the armor for the same reasons as Thornmail and the ability power to help with healing more with meditate and doing more damage with alpha strike.

Summoner Spells

With summoner spells I have taken heal and flash. another alternative is ghost is you don' have flash. heal can be used in conjunction with meditate to heal a lot of health at one time. flash/ghost can be used to escape from a gank or chasing an enemy champion. If you take ghost you can use it in conjunction with highlander to give a massive speed boost to easily catch a champion or escape from one.

Runes

With the runes i have taken flat armor to help with early game and meditate. as an alternative you could take magic resistance or a combination of both.

Masteries

With masteries I focused on armor and reducing damage and getting cooldown reduction

Summary

In summary this guide focuses on making Master Yi nearly invulnerable when using mediate as well as ability power to do more damage with alpha stike and heal more with meditate
