Introduction

Hello all, this would be my first guide in mobafire. I realised it would be selfish to keep my ways of using Master Yi to my self. Before i begin i will announce myself in lol as perseus82 and have been playing for nearly over a year. Master Yi is a fast-paced and by far one of the best ad carries in the game. In this guide i will be showing you his true potential. First off, hes going to be squishy. I know most people would try to get him hp or give him lifesteal early, but really, he can do much more.

Summoner Spells

Standard.
Flash is my favorite summoner spell. With it you can flash through walls, chase an enemy, or get out of really sticky situations.

Exhaust is probably best for you as you will be soloing top.

Exceptional.
Ghost is alright but you already have your Highlander, but might help if its on cooldown or early game, so if you are getting this swap it with Flash

Ignite This is probably the spell you want to choose if you dont choose exhaust. ignite might be useful to finish an enemy of.

Heal. Choose this if you are struggling to keep your health pool under control. It probably means you're doing something wrong if you consistently keep dying. Try more for survivability and only trade your life for a kill if the opponent has a killing spree or higher. Make sure you will most certinly get the kill or DONT GO FOR IT!

Runes

For marks i recommend the Greater Mark of Attack Damage. This for flat AD and can really help throughout the game. For glyphs i recommend the Greater Glyph of Aclarity for the additional attack speed. For the seals i have Greater Seal of Furor's mainly because you will be critical striking alot and will do tones of damage. I have for Quintessences the Greater Quintessence of Health. This is mainly because of personal preference and i just LOVE the extra hp pool.

Items

Firstly , I start with the normal Boots of Speed and three health potions. You all know why, the extra movement speed is essential and the health potions can keep you at your lane without having to recall. I know most people get a The Bloodthirster as their first starting item but i dont really think it'll be worth it. Straight after your Berserker's Greaves, go for two phantom dancers. The even it off with attack damage from an Infinity Edge. I know alot of people get this item last but getting it mid game can really be useful. I know what your thinking... Thats stupid, Yi would be easily killed! But the point is yi is supposed to kill before they can kill you. With the first four items alone ive had 2 pentakills and 3 or 4 quadra kills and ill try to get photography of my wins. Lastly you get two bloodthirsters and try killing some minions for the additional damage and lifesteal. they'll find it impossible to kill you. By now if the game isn't won yet get boots of mobility because you dont need the 25% attack speed that much and they'll be afraid of you so you can easily catch up.
