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.
PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING
This first part is a comprehensive guide
Near the bottom is the "short and sweet guide"
I reccomend reading both but it is up to you.
This is a guid on Master Yi. This guide is a very does not *guarentee* anything because it is up to the person's skill. This guide will give you one of the most effective builds for master yi. I have played almost 95% of all of my games with him. I tried almost every build that i have ever seen and this build is what I use from now on.
For this build you need ignite and heal. You say why heal? that is so nooby and gay. Well yes.. but it works. You need to get a great beggining game for yi and when you are 1v1 against a person you heal, when you turret dive you heal. When a char rushes you at your turret to kill you and you kinddof move around the perimiter of the turret to avoid him. you engage him and then guess what? YOU HEAL and when you do so you send ignite onto him attack him and the turret is helping to and before you know it boom hes dead, and you are called a noob for using heal. It is effective and it works so please try it before turing your head away.
To play yi you cannot run into huge team fights, the reality of it is, is that you are one of the squishiest characters in the game what you need to do is let your team engage and then you come around the side and surprise them while your team engages them from the front.
Why malady and not starks fevor? Malady will give you 15% lifeseal,and 50% attack speed. Starks does not, starks is a TEAM item and trust me you want malady for the speed. (starks is also more expensive).
when you engage a summoner you hit wuju style and alpha strike you can also use alpha strike as an evade tactic when running away use it on a enemy minion to move more ahead, you can also evade ashes ult by using it, but that takes a lot of practice.
All characters are good and bad in their own way, i have seen a great shaco and a terrible shaco, a good heim and a bad heim a good yi and a bad yi, the matter of the fact is it is up to you the summoner to make tha character good, and if you follow this build you will be one more step closer to making somebody rage. Good luck have fun.
Short and Sweet
Heal and ignite.
Heal- will save ur ***, turret diving defence and 1v1 early game
Ignite- will be your range in case you cant get that last hit in (you are mele remember)
These two combos will do a lot of damage.
AND PURE SPAM CHARACTERS WHO JUST PICK AT YOUR HEALTH FROM A GOOD DISTANCE (ERHEM ERHEM... GALIO)
Why play yi?
He is ausome
Does 1.2k crit damage with this build
most characters worst nightmare.
why not play yi
hes incredibly squishy
people will give you **** for it. All you gotta say is "look at the score ***"
Please rate up if this helped you and if it didnt leave a comment on why or what I need to chage. Thank you for you time.
