Introduction

Hello and welcome to my first guide. I hope this guild helps some of you Master Yi users who want to shred through the enemy's hp.

I use this build most of the time as yi and it tends to work out great, especially in team fights.


Guide Top

Skill Level Explanation

This build will require you not to die a lot so that you can get the gold needed to buy the items.

The reason I max Alpha Strike first is because it's great for killing lots of minions fast and getting a lot of gold fast as well.

Next I max out Wuju Style which helps build up Yi's physical damage, which helps you kill minions, farm and champs a bit faster.

Lastly I max meditate. I figure if you have meditate unlocked, it will help you when you're a little low on hp, plus the potions will come in handy as well.

Use Yi's ult along with wuju style to take down turrets and champs with amazing speed.

Items Explanation

With Yi you always want to be a faster than any other champ you may be facing.

Boots Of Speed
I always start off with Boots of Speed to give Yi that extra speed for ganking in the bush in a 3v or getting to your lane faster in a 5v

Potions
Potions will help you regain you hp if you get in a bad situation, or get ganked first because your team mates didn't get to the bush first or for any other reason.

Berserker's Grieves
Like I stated earlier, Yi should be fast, not only in movement but in attacks as well. Berserker's Grieves help Yi boost his atk speed along with his movement speed.

Phantom Dancer
Phantom Dancer helps Yi gain great atk and movement speed. Allowing him to quickly destroy turrets, inhibitors, champs and everything else

The Bloodthirster
Bloodthirster gives Yi a great amount of physical damage, including some life steal damage which will help him replenish his health quite nicely along side his Meditation.

Infinity Edge
Once you're reached this point, Yi should do a great amount of damage which will definitely melt away your opponent's hp. The added crit strike and crit percentage will stack nicely with Phantom Dancer's crit percentage.

Phantom Dancer
I add a second Phantom Dancer to Yi's build just to make him extra fast in movement and attack speed. Also with the other Phantom Dancer plus the Infinity Edge's crit damage, Yi will definitely be able to take down anyone's hp in no time at all.

Maw of Malmortius
Maw of Malmortius gives Yi extra atk damage and helps avoid magic damage. If you ever get to this point, you should be unstoppable as Master Yi.
