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 this is my first guide and it is about my favourite champion Master Yi.Hope you enjoy reading and learning from this guide along with playing.This is not the only way to play Yi and you can always mix it with your playstyle.Don't take this champions. lightly it requires skill and devotion as much as the other champions.
Pros / Cons
~He is very powerful through the game
~Low mana pool
~Weak in survivability
~Really hard to play against exceperienced players.
Greater Seal of Malice - Critical damage is really good with your lifesteal.
Greater Mark of Desolation - Who doesn't need armor penetration?Almost everyhero with AD needs armor penetration.
Greater Glyph of Malice - (See Greater Seal of Malice for explanation)
Greater Quintessence of Desolation - (See Greater Mark of Desolation for explanation)
If you aren't level 30 yet for Yi prioritize the offensive tree along with only one point in Utility tree for the ghost.Use your knownledge on why i mostly use the Offensive tree and why i use Cripple (Offensive Tree) and Haste (Utility Tree).If you are letting an enemy flee or he gets away from you then it seems that you aren't a very good Yi.No champion can outrun Yi.
Ghost - Great for fleeing or chasing enemy fleeing champions along with the ghostblade and your ultimate.
Exhaust - Greate for slowing the enemy heroes so you can catch them faster and destroy them.
I don't recomment the rest of the summoner spells because they are not viable for Yi.They don't compliment the way i think Yi should play as.
Berserker Boots - Attack Speed and Movement.You will love this boots from the moment you get them.
Youmuu's Ghostblade - Extra Damage,More Critical,Armor Penetration,Cooldown Reduction.And when you activate more Attack Speed and Movement Speed.What else do you need to run and attack faster?
Phantom Dancer - More Attack Speed,Critical and Movement Speed.Hell dam you will run like superman.Noone will be able to catch you.
Infinity Edge - Absolute the best item for Yi.More Attack Damage and Critical.And your Critical hits will now deal 250% of your damage.This is far the best item for Yi.
Bloodthirster - More Attack Damage and Lifesteal.Plus you get 1 attack damage and 0.25% lifesteal per kill.Stacking up until +40 Damage and +10% Lifesteal.Try not to die bonuses are lost upon death.
Frozen Mallet - Now noone will be able to flee from you and you will get some life for survivability.Imagine each hit of yours to slow the target while you have active your ulti and your Ghostblade.Noone will be able to outrun you and flee from you.
This guide shows the importance of stacking:
-Critical Strike Chance
Life steal,Attack Speed and Movement speed are the main parts of Yi.The quicker you attack,the more you return to yourself from your lifesteal.As Critical Strike and Increasing Critical Damage increases Life Steal along with your Movement Speed which noone will be able to outrun you.You will be able to destroy them in a matter of seconds.
Creeping / Jungling
This Guide is not meant for Creeping or Jungling only for laning.Please don't try use it jungle.You will get killed and your teammates will be mad at you.
This build simple and devastating.It mixs together Life Steal,Critical Strike/Damage,Attack Speed and Movement Speed.If you play correctly you will be able to devastate and destroy your enemies.
