Keeper of the ancient art of Wuju, Master Yi is a mystical warrior from the isle of Ionia. He descended from one of the few tribes dedicated to the preservation of Wuju, a martial art founded with the principles of absolute spiritual awareness of one's self and one's enemy. When the armies of Noxus invaded Ionia, Master Yi joined in the Ionian defense to fight the craven enemy, bringing his village honor through his unparalleled mastery of the blade. The ensuing battles ravaged the land, but no conflict inflicted as much horror as the day the armies of Noxus closed in on Yi's village. Left undefended, the village became the unfortunate test subject of the latest invention by an up-and-coming chemist, now known as Singed. The remains of the village that Master Yi returned to were so horrific that it remains a festering scar on Ionian history. To this day, no Ionian will ever publicly speak of what occurred.

After the Noxian invasion was contained, Master Yi fell into a deep isolation. For years, he trained morning to night, speaking to no one and refusing offers of consolation by fellow Ionians. The only thing stopping him from madly charging into Noxus battle lines headfirst was his pledge to keep the Wuju style alive. Even though he seethed with impatience, his rage became a tool for sharpening his practice of Wuju, developing stronger and deadlier skills for his eventual vengeance. The only thing that roused him was news of the League's formation, and Noxus's subsequent enrollment in the League. Master Yi now brings his mastery of the blade to the League of Legends with unflinching purpose: to avenge his kinfolk and end the predations of the Noxus once and for all.

''The art of Wuju lives on in Master Yi, and is plunged through the hearts of his foes.'' -- Soraka, the Starchild

* If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.
* Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.
* Try using Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.

You can start with Boots of Speed, 2 potions of health regeneration and 1 mana regeneration. Yi's Wuju Style gives him bonus dmg so you dont neeed DMG items on start of the game. As the game continues, try to kill a lot of minions. Buy Berserker's Greaves. With those boots, you get attack speed, which is I can say the most needed for him. Next item is Stark's Fervor, with it you get life steal + health regeneration which is also despretly needed. You can get Blue Buff and WHOLAA - lets pwn! Buy Phantom Dancer for Critical and Attack speed, Infinity Edge for DMG and critical and Bloodthirster for life steal. End of the game! :D Offcourse with good team.
