The story of the Assasin!

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.

This is my way too have this rune build :)
Greater mark of desolation, This is a great way too get you alot more dmg against other enemies, that would give them less armor when you have 9 Greater mark of desolation so it would ble 15 armor less for the enemy, which would be 10-15% more damage for these who have 50-75 armor that would be useful :)

Greater Seal of Alcarity is perfect for Yi. Yi need alot of attack speed and then Greater seak of Alcarity is great because when you have 9x of them do you have 8% more attack speed and Yi's attack damage is 310 with full build and when you got that so fast attack damage with alot of crits thats so awesome :D

Greater Glyph of Alcarity is just the same as Greater seal of Alcarity 9x+9x of them would be 16% attack speed+ so what should i say? thats just great :D

Skill Sequence

That would be easy too learn :) use Alpha Strike - Wuju Style - Highlander and if you think you can kill them when you got that so low hp then use Meditate this would be useful sometimes but you have too think about it if you think you can survive AND never forget that meditate gives you armor+ and magic resist+ You could use Highlander too escape if you got troubles :)

Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Ghost - This is good if the enemy is running away and is too quick even you are using highlander

Exhaust - Just use this when they are running away from you or you have too escape :)

You could also use Ignite - for more damage, its actually a bit useful for Master yi but i dont prefer them :)

This is not a jungling guide but you can use Smite

Teleport - is that fine for Yi, if you want alot kills or want too support other lanes by moving that so quick too the other lanes :)

Heal - It could be that nice too Yi but not that so useful, Heal could be that tricky, when you got that low hp and use that when they got low hp you'll kill them :D Heal is also useful in start too :)

Pros / Cons

- VEERY quick too kill some others

- The highlander cancels all your cooldown spells when you kills a champion

- Meditate is great against rangeds in lane so you could heal yourself when you got troubles

- When you got a bad start you'll feed

- Not easy too kill the ones with high armor
