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 is MY Master Yi guide. Im playing this guide very long time now and it works very good. When you find this build is **** or you cant play with it then its your problem. This should be an approach or/and a help for people who never played Yi before. I hope this build will help you to add sth or to have a completely new build. Im looking forward to criticism (good or bad) and amendments. Now i show you the essence.
My summoner spells are and . is very useful to negate effects like exhaust or stuns etc. . Youre mostly the primary target in teamfights so you have a great advantage in removing such effects and going on in your bloodlust^^. With you can immobilize carries for a few time or slow enemys. With this two summoner spells you have pratical no weakness(The only problem could be and ).
I skill 23/0/7 so Yi is very strong in offense and has a little exp boost. How i skill my abilities can you see above. The runes i use are pure critical chance runes (9* , 9* , 9* and 3* ). At the beginning so much crit (20%+2%+8%) is very useful and in the end a nice addition because i dont buy this much critrate items.
I start with , and . With you have 30% critrate (with mastery and runes). This makes Yi very strong in early game mainly against squishies. As a result of this you should make some kills in early game(this would be very useful :) ). I go back the first time when i can buy and . After that im strong enough to gank the lanes to get more kills. If your teammates support you by the ganks and try you get the kills youll buy two times. After that i farm a liitle bit(when i didnt have enough money through kills) to get . With the actual build i exterminate normally every squishy and tanks, too. Now its time for to have lifesteal and to decrease enemy armor once more by 20 points. Now you have 20 armorreducing and 40% armorpenetration(with armorpenetration it wouldnt stack). To make more damage and to add some critrate i buy an . The critrate will suffice until the end because of the runes. Now i go on with bying a to get more lifesteal and damage(should be enough lifesteal not to die anymore at least according to my experience^^). The final add is the to have a greater attackspeed(with ulti 2,5 now), more critical and few evasion (but this didnt belong). Now the item build is ready and nothing and nobody should hinder you to kill everything.
This build is very very strong in the end game(try it out and have fun^^)
Also to say that this is my first "printed" build. If somebody have a improvement suggestion write it. Im glad about every comment. And dont critic the build before you hadnt try it out pls. I hope i could help you with this build.
