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.
This Critical Strike Master Yi Build is used for tower pushing, sneak base attacks and easy kills in team fights or alone. you can get multiple double kills, maybe a few trips, and possibly more
-Move your ghostblade into your 6th slot of your item inventory, and then go into your settings and change the inventory hot-key for slot 6 to the letter key "t".
-When in battle when attacking more then 1 person activate wuju style, highlander, and your ghostblade- hotkeys are "e" "r" and "t". this will close to double both your movement speed and your attack-speed for the brief time they are active.
-kills at start of game-
A very easy way to get easy kills is within the first 10 minutes. by level 2 you should have both your Alpha strike and your Wuju Stile unlocked. This is where you start ganking. If your playing a lane you can easily hide in a bush, before you do that you want to get your double-strike on your 7th hit, so the next time you attack you will double hit the enemy target. When you have both your Double-Strike up, and your in the Bush with your Alpha Strike and your Wuju stile, you use Wuju stile, doubling the effect of it, then you Alpha Strike to an enemy champion then attack them, it will hit them twice causing massive damage, killing them if low enough health.
Master Yi is one of the best tank killers in the game.Yi should be the only one who is targeting the tank in a team fight. Allowing your team to focus attacks elsewhere. Master Yi is also team fight kill stealer, it happens a lot, trying to do it, or not, when a team mate is killing someone you will just go along and hit him critical him for 1100 damage and get the kill and just move on to the next one.
Master Yi is the Number 1 tower killer in the game. start attacking a tower, use your Wuju Stile and your ghostblade. save your highlander to escape getting ganked.
Be aware soloing baron is not easy. for you to be able to kill baron alone you need to have the build at max and the Bloodthirster at max. With this, you will be able to easily solo the baron if using your ult and ghostblade.
1. Youmuu's Ghostblade
2. Berserker's Greaves
3. Phantom Dancer
4. Infinity Edge
the last 2 can be purchased as you see fit, if struggling with health, bloodthirster is recommended first. (i do PD)
5. Phantom Dancer
When playing Master Yi, the Summoner Spells i recommend are -
1.Exhaust or Cleanse
I recommend always having ghost, but many like cleanse exhaust.
3. Ignite - optional over both ghost or exhaust. but is only good early game, late game ignite is not much of a help as ghost or other SS.
Ghost is a great combo with yi because youmuu's GB, Highlander, ghost, and your speed increases from the Phantom Dancer's make him the ultimate chaser. I always here. "damn that yi was lightning fast" the above skills and items are the reason why.
