Master Yi, The WuJu BladesMan

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' 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

As for items i Buy them in this order:
1. Doran's Shield for that extra health at the start.
2. Berserker Greaves Because they're boots and give Attack Damage.
3. Vampiric Scepter For the bit of life steal
4. Phantom Dancer For the Attack Speed and Damage
5. Starks Fervor for the Attack Damage and Lifesteal (Vampiric Scepter gone)
6. Phantom Dancer Again, For the Attack Speed and Damage
7. Starks Fervor Again, For the Attack Damage and Lifesteal
8. Sell Doran's Shield
9. Ionic Spark for the Chain Lightning Damage and Attack Speed
10. Sell Berserkers Greaves
11. Youmuu's Ghostblade for Attack Speed and Crit
Successfully achieving these items will render you, Unstoppable, to say the least

Also the Starks Fervors can be swapped for Bloodthirsters if you want that extra damage.

Skill Sequence

Generally as Master Yi, i never get Meditate until the last levels, as i never find myself needing to use it. If you find your up against oppenents who harass alot i suggest getting it at 4, 8, 12, 17, 18.
I never use meditate because i use the Summoner spells Heal and Teleport.
I can practically here you guys saying "noob" but i can assure you, the faster you get into battle, the better. and you NEED Heal if your not going to be getting Meditate.
