Master Yi Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This Critical Strike Master Yi Build is used for fast pushing, tower raping, and ultimately, easy kills in team fights, trust me, done right you will have a Triple kill a game, if not more then a triple.
A very helpful tip is toMove your ghostblade into your 6th slot of your item inventory, and then go into your settings and change the inventory hot-key for slot 6 to the letter key "t", that way its active will be in easy reach encase you need it,
Another very helpful tip isWhen in the heat of a battle when attacking more then 1 person or just trying to kill a tank, it would be wise to press your hot-keys "e" "r" and "t" if you have the ghostblade, when in a battle you always want your Wuju stile to be on "e", and when in battle your Ulti (Highlander)"r" and ghostblade combo is completely rape, it will at least double if not more, both your movement speed and your attack-speed for the brief time they are active.
Easy kills at start of gameA very easy way to get east kills at the not really the start, but the first 10 minutes, Either way, The way this is done is by level 2, you have both your Alpha strike and your Wuju Stile unlocked, that's when you can rape. If your playing a lane you can easily hide in a bush, before you do that you want to get your double-strike on your 7th hit, so the next time you attack you will double hit the enemy target. When you have both your Double-Strike up, and your in the Bush with your Alpha Strike and your Wuju stile, along with your ignite(not needed) ready, you use Wuju stile, doubling the effect of it, then you Alpha Strike to an enemy champion then attack them, it will hit them twice and do lots of damage, and if low enough health, you can ignite them for the kill.
Team FightsMaster Yi is one of the best tank killers in the game by far if built right, that means he is the only one who is targeting the tank in a team fight leaving the rest to take out the others, as well with a great team fighter, master Yi is also team fight kill stealer, it happens a lot, trying to do it, or not, when a team mate is killing someone you will just go along and hit him critical him for 1100 damage and get the kill and just move on to the next one. But that's why its so easy for him to get penta kills in team fights. I personally have gotten 6 penta kills just using Master Yi, and about 22 Quad's; almost penta's.
Tower PushingMaster Yi is the Number 1 tower killer in the game, it is very easy to do, start attacking a tower, use your Wuju Stile, Activate your ghostblade, and your ulti(Highlander) is not needed to kill the tower, and is helps for easy get a ways if ganked.
Baron SoloBe aware soloing baron is not easy, for you to be able to kill baron alone you need to have the build at max and the Bloodthirster at max. With this, you will be able to easily solo the baron if using your ulti and ghostblade. If you feel like killing baron a bit sooner, it would be wise to have at least 1 other assisting you.
1st Get the Brawler's Gloves
Summoner SpellsWhen playing Master Yi, you always want Cleanse, because if you get stunned its over.
You also really want Ignite to you can get easy kills early in game, but if you really don't like Ignite, or you Really like Ghost, Ghost is an alternative. It is also very useful for Master Yi.. But not needed.
