Skill Sequence

For some combos with Master Yi, I usually use, Alpha Strike, Wuju Style, then Highlander, it's pretty efficient. Or if you think it fails, then use Highlander when you're trying to flee but usually your mana will be very very low so careful what you choose next cause if you have barely any mana, there is no chance of running away with Highlander.

Summoner Spells

For summoner spells I usually use,
Exhaust, because I can slow the enemy down and use Flash, I don't really know why I need Flash but OKAY.

Items

Berseker Greaves are for movement speed and attack speed.
Tiamat is for attack damage, HP and MP regen.

Infinity Edge is for massive damaga and massive criticals.
Frozen Mallet is for attack damage and tons of health and slows the enemy with every attack.
