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.
Master Yi is very good assassin. He can use Alpha Strike to move at enemy, and then use Wuju Style and Highlander to kill enemy. In this build I wanna make as much damage in short time as possible. Meditate is very useful to stay at lane longer. It also gives you defense and magic resist. You hit something around 300 at end. Please rate and comment to this guide.
Pros / Cons
High movement speed
High attack without any items
Very good skills
Easy to kill at start
Always be ganked (unless you gank them)
Need team at start
All these runes give you critical damage/change or health which is very important to Master Yi, because he gets attack damage from Wuju Style. So if you take these runes your critical strike/chance gets very much higher. Yi is invulnerable with this critical chance/strike and lifesteal. But don't think that you are immortal. You get killed very easy if you just think so.
These masteries makes your auto attack better, and also your ignite gets better. You get higher attack speed, your critical strike hit more and you get more damage and regneration and experience. Also your dead time gets shorter.
First you should buy Boots of Speed and so many Health Potions as you can. These help you to stay at lane longer. Now when you recall first time you should get Berserker Greaves and Zeal Now when you go back to your lane try to farm AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!!!, and now you should kill enemy champs more easier. And now if you have farmed and recalled you should buy Phantom Dancer and Vampiric Sceptre. With Vampiric Sceptre you don't need to meditate so often. and then when you recall again buy B. F. Sword or The Bloodthirster. So now you hit much, hit fast, and hit critical. Then you go to farm again so you get very much gold. Now when you recall again you should buy Infinity Edge or B. F. Sword. So if you can buy Infinity Edge your critical hits much more. Now you go AGAIN to farm and get AGAIN pretty much gold, and then AGAIN you recall (sounds intresting) and buy The Black Cleaver which stacks to an enemy. Those stacks lower enemy armor so you can kill tanks much easier. now you kill as many champions as possible and then recall and buy Zeal or Phantom Dancer. Now you get kills like hell!!!
