I find it more beneficial to out Alpha Strike an enemy Yi. So when I see a Yi on the opposite team I usually start with a Fiendish Codex and Boots. If the enemy team looks extra squishy ill replace the boots with Amplifying Tome. Then i finish the recipe and get a Morellonomicon and start working on AP from there.

Was wondering if that makes sense and if I should continue doing this, as I don't see myself as the best build creator, and I try to build situationaly, but always find myself following a Mobafire build exactly if I (at the time) have no need for anything in particular.

theres no real point getting a morellonomicon on ap yi, its more designed for dot casters.

the only thing i think would be useful that builds out of codex is deathfire grasp. but thats it.

Ill try that out next time I play him. Guess I was not thinking straight, because the last match I did I build the grasp last, but it may be better off first.

Deathfire Grasp first is bad aswell. It deals more damage the more damage you have. I would start with Fiendish Codex and then rush Rabadon's Deathcap.

Just go normal Rabadon's Deathcap and harass the enemy team. You shouldn't really be able to ''beat'' the enemy AP Yi nor will he beat you because you can just heal up whatever damage you do to each other with Meditate. I guess if you really want to have CDR and to beat him you can go Athene's Unholy Grail for infinite mana, CDR and Magic Resist to take less damage from him. But I don't think that's necessary lol

Wait.. How did you get Yi vs Yi in ARAM?

Unless they're level 1 accounts with only Yi unlocked and a tiny bit of luck I have yet to see an ARAM game with Yis on both teams.. Or 2 of any other champion for that matter.

Can happen when you go blind pick. Then it's not really ARAM, but we figure it's the Proving Ground.

On-Topic: I usually start Chalice+Tome for massive spam and Athene's rush. Athene's is a must for silly combos before lvl 18. I get the point with your Morellonomicon, but I wouldnt focus on their Yi until later on. Then if you realise no one cancels the other Yi's meditate, you can consider Morello.

@Caucheka: Yea, it's great on dot casters but let's consider they have Mundo Soraka Yi. I would definately consider Morello on any caster whatsoever.
