Introduction

Yi is one of the best AP carries in the game. Equally as good as destroying squishies in a split second as taking out towers solo in a blink of an eye. The Warmogs will actually help you tank the tower and destroy it solo without the help of minions (activate your ult).

Masteries

Masteries, are all about survival. A dead Yi is a no damage Yi. With the item build you have Attack Speed, crazy damage, Lifesteal (sustainability), and Anti Tank. The Warmogs gives you all the reaction time you need to go in and kill the squishies/dpsers. The extra 48hp, 5% damage reduction, 6 armor and 6 magic resist all help with survivability early game. Add the 100hp and 10 damage from the Dorian's blade and you're near 700hp and 83 attack damage.

Items

Start with Dorian's blade = 83 attack Damage and 700hp.
Move to BF Sword = 140-150 damage (including the bonuses from his passive and his levels)
Next, you need attack speed outside of your ult, and move speed, so go for Boots and Zeal.
Get your Scepter for Survivability, and then finish Phantom Dancer. You're now in the 200 attack damage range, with incredible move speed, lifesteal and attack speed. Yi remains squishy, so this is when I start to Build Warmogs or get a BF Sword.

The rest speaks for itself. With the amount of damage you're putting out, and the near 100% crit rate, you must complete the Infinity edge, and you're able to take down anyone and any turret. The Madreds gives you a better edge against Tanks which stack armor, while giving you another 40% attack speed and some armor to boot.

1 word of advice for ANY champion - Armor is good vs AD, Magic Resist is good vs AP. HP is good vs everything (including True Damage).

Conclusion

This build is deadly, although like any good player knows, you MUST be flexible, and adapt to your enemy champions and builds (although this build will cut through almost anything). This is an expensive build, but Yi can gather up tons of kills/gold and these can all be purchased piece by piece to benefit from the bonuses as you build.
