Abilities

____________________________________________________________________________



Double Strike

Master Yi strikes twice every 7th attack.

This passive is a beast when it comes to Melee DPS champions. Because this build is critical damage based, your critical is doubled every seven attacks. Also with your ultimate and items you have a lot of Attack Speed, so these 7 attacks are happen in matter of seconds.

Tips and tricks:
Try to stack your double strike before you gank so you hit double damage with first attack.

Alpha Strike

Master Yi leaps across the battlefield with blinding speed, dealing magic damage to multiple units in his path with a chance to deal bonus magic damage to minions.

An amazing tool for jungling, farming, escaping and catching up. This skill allows you to pass by wolfs and wraiths in matter of 1 or 2 seconds. When maxed deals 300 damage, which is respectable, since you're not building on AP.

Tips and tricks:
There is a picture explanation on how to use Alpha Strike in Gameplay section

Meditate

Master Yi rejuvinates his body by focus of mind, restoring health and increasing his armor and magic resistance for a short time.

Even thou I leave Meditate for last, its an incredible tool on Master Yi because of his squishiness and vulnerability. This skill is mostly underrated on most players.When at level 5 it heals you for 700 over 5 seconds, and in that time grants 300 Magic Resistance and Armor.

Tips and tricks:
This skill grants you 300 Magic Resistance and Armor. Use it wisely against champions like Karthus when they use requirem.
This tool is amazing when it comes to survivability with low HP. You can trick your enemies into towerdiving you, granting yourself an easy kill.

Wuju Style


Master Yi becomes skilled in the art of Wuju, passively increasing the power of his physical attacks. Activating Wuju Style doubles the passive bonus damage for a short time, but the passive bonus is temporarily removed after the effect wears off.

This is pure ownage skill on Master Yi. Because of massive amounts of AD that this skill provides, I first take Phantom Dancer providing Attack Speed and Critical Chance. At level 5 only passive already gives 35 AD. When activated, you get 70 AD boost for 10 seconds.

Tips and tricks:
Since last patch, this skill can be actived when in Alpha Strike form. Activate it while you're in Alpha Strike so your first hit will be affected by bonus.

Highlander


Master Yi moves with unparalleled agility, temporarily increasing Master Yi's movement and attack speeds as well as making him immune to all slowing effects. Additionally, killing a Champion refreshes all of Master Yi's cooldowns.

This skill is epic. This is your chase, escape and kill resource. You have a problem with enemies chasing you? Press R. Your enemies too fast for you? Press R. Not dealing damage fast enough? Press R. For what it offers, it has low cooldown. When maxed it gives 40% Movement Speed and 80% Attack Speed for 12 seconds. If thats not enough, this skill makes you slow immune when active.

Tips and tricks:
If you kill an enemy during Highlander is active, all your cooldowns drop to 0 and you're skills are available again.
Combined with Wuju Style this skill is pure beast dealing damage in fast time frame. Use this in your advantage and backdoor when possible.
