Introduction to Master YI

Double Strike
In my opinion this is one of the best passives in the game.
Alpha Strike
This is a incredibly useful skill a jump that hits multiple targets and auto attack as soon as you stop and if you use it right you can avoid damage.
Meditate
I really don't like this skill unless I'm going ap yi.But still very useful to stay in lane a bit longer.
Wuju Style
One of his best abilities gives you (15/20/25/30/35} damage with an activate that doubles the passive damage.
Highlander His ultimate has many uses {chasing, running away, getting across the map, and extra atk speed in fights} this makes him an almost unstoppable force that beats your face in while you try to run.

Items

first you want to get Long Sword and a potion
second trip back you want a kill or maybe two and get boots and a Ruby Crystal
third trip back finish a phage and finish boots doesn't matter what kind you get but i almost always get Berserker's Greaves
fourth want to get Frozen Mallet if you cant get a Giants Belt
fifth you want to get two The Bloodthirster
than go for Phantom Dancer
and last get a Infinity Edge

Runes

I like the armor pen reds and quints to get the caster/squishy champions to almost 0 armor
The damage and damage per levels are in my opinion the best just for the extra burst and extra damage end game.


some other Seals would be Greater Seal of Critical Chance or Greater Seal of Attack Speed
some other Marks would be Greater Mark of Attack Speed Greater Mark of Critical Chance Greater Mark of Attack Damage Greater Mark of Scaling Attack Damage
some other glyphs would be Greater Glyph of Scaling Attack Damage or Greater Glyphs of Malice
there are no other good quints that I have found I will keep trying new ones.

Skill Sequence

this is the best skill order due to the ridiculous damage on wuju style. you can level alpha strike to farm but this build is not so much based on farming than it is killing.


Guide Top

Team Work

you want to gank as much as possible it gets you money and nice exp. but on the way to ganks you want to ping the target your gonna hit so your teammate can use a cc on the target {stun, snare,suppress,etc} this will almost always ensure a kill on your target.


Guide Top

ganking and using your passive

first of all your passive is AWESOME. just wanted to get that out cause in the lane you hit a minion until you get a double strike and get to a bush. when a squishy is in range for alpha strike than use it on them.{while jumping around when alpha strike is on you can use Wuju style so do that so they don't know there gonna get hit really hard until it happens}


Guide Top

Unique Skills

when you are skilled enough you can start avoiding damage with alpha strike. it only works on dodging skill shots and leaps like Jax and Akali. it doesn't sound like much but when you dodge a jax leap for 700 damage it can make the difference in a fight.
all you do is as soon as you see them jump use it and it will stop all damage a bit complicated

Farming

all you need to know for farming is alpha strike.
