[8.23] The Master of Wuju ! Master Yi TOP, JUNGLE GUIDE

By Yi Guide
Champion Knowledge
Master Yi is one of(if not the best) the best late game scalers in the game,although; his early game is not as weak as most people think. The only problem with Master Yi is that fact that he is squishy and has ZERO cc. This makes him difficult to play from behind and also difficult to fit into any team comp because of his need for team initiation and farming. Master Yi requires really good decision making and game knowledge to know when and where to engage. Even though he has a linear kit, there's a lot of outplay potential with his Alpha Strike and Meditate. Because his sole purpose is to kill champions, there is no turning back once you start a fight. The build I have on this guide is in my opinion, the perfect balance between safety in the early game while preserving Master Yi's late game hyper carry potential for the sweet pentakills and hard carry plays.
Ideally, you would want to get level 6 on Master Yi before ganking any lane. But if you see a lane that's pushed into your team's tower and the enemy laner has no mobility, thats the perfect time to gank even if you're not 6. You would usually want to go into the lane with red buff. Never Alpha Strike to them unless theres no way you'll reach them in time, always walk u to them activate Wuju Style and red smite and just auto attack move repeat. Wait until they burn their flash then Alpha Strike with them and usually it'll be enough to finish them off especially with a good laner followup.

After 6
After level 6 it's easy peesy, just do the same thing except activate your ult as well. If you ever encounter a situation where you want to tower dive, tank the turret so you can switch it to your laner after you Alpha Strike. If you get a kill and you're tanking tower, auto the turret around 2 or 3 times and your Alpha Strike will come back up, then Alpha Strike the minion and you can survive. Your Meditate can also reduce tower damage so use that combined with Alpha Strike you will be a very good diver.
When you duel someone, it is best to save Alpha Strike to dodge something like a nidalee pounce or lee sin q. Also if you press Meditate right after auto attack then auto attack again you will cancel the animation of the first auto. It is best to use this after your passive(double strike) because it is the smoothest.
Late Game
Almost always group up with your team and either wait for them to engage or your team to engage. If you see no point in grouping up because you gain nothing from it, then split push while keeping an eye on the map. When your team engages, Alpha Strike on to the squishiest target/priority target and kill them first to get your Highlander reset and Alpha Strike reset, switch to the next most important target and do the same , your Alpha Strike will hit everyone 4 times if you do this correctly and with the ability to crit they will all die. The only danger is if you get cced, thats where the mercurial comes into play. With your full build, you can literally 2 to 3 shot a squishy target with grants you even more highlander for chasing other people.
Ability Usage
Remember Master Yi's passive resets all of his ability's cooldowns by 75%, which means you can just spam Wuju Style in a fight and always keep track of your Alpha Strike cd so you can use it as soon as it comes up. Meditate is basically an Alistar ultimate with a heal late game, so if the enemy team blew their cc and you are low, it might just save your life.
First u start red, then u go blue scuttle, u wanna put the ghost poro in enemy jungler to get some bonus ad, then u go to blue, gromp, wolfs, raptors, stones. and repeat that.
