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.
Before I say anything, and you make any judgements on my build that i have come up with , please note that this build works for me and my play style (very aggressive). Some people like solid dps and damage but I prefer Tanky/Dps.
Marks- Armor Pen is great on Master Yi very early on in early game phase. This help getting first blood and taking down tanks early and late game.
Seals- The attack speed is great for hitting your opponent as much times as you can for early harassment.
Glyphs- You ask why the Cooldown reduction ? Well it helps spam your Q ability in laneing phase.
Quints- The flat health will boost your survivability in early game and helps add a little more attack damage for Atmas in late game.
Masteries- I go the usual attack masteries , 21/9/0 but if you would like to go for a more tanky Yi then I would suggest going 9/21/0. The attack damage boost is great and adding the buff for ignite is great for a little Ap.
Purchase a Dorans Shield for some health and hp regen. Once you start getting 2-3 kills get your Berzerkers greaves and start working for your Warmogs. Depending on what the other team has if they have disables or alot of CC get Merc. Treads but if your team just plain sucks gets Boots of Mobility it will help you get around. After getting pretty beefy with Warmogs you should have now at least 6-7 kills so u should have some money to buy Phantom Dancer its is a little costly but the attack speed will benenfit Master Yi with his ult. Now for the Attack Damage part grab an Atmas Impaler which will give u a pretty good amount of attack damage for team fights.If the game is not yet over get a Infinity Edge to top it all off.
I usually max out Alpha Strike to harass early in the game and to farm. It helps farm minion waves and kill neutral monsters in the jungle. Start off by going Alpha,Wuju,Alpha,Wuju then one point in Meditate then grab your ult at 6 . Max Alpha Strike then max Wuju Style then finish off by adding the points into Meditate, grab your ult when ever you can. The idea is to have more control of the opponent early on with your Alpha Strike and Wuju and then start working up your heal for late game nukers.
Summoner Spells- I always go for exhaust and ignite seeing that your ult is already a mini ghost you wont need ghost. Some people like flash for chasing enemies and last hitting with Alpha but seeing that you are already fast enough you wont need it. The element of surprise can be devastating to your opponents. It can also be used as an effective escape. Do the unexpected. Dont be scared to initiate first Yi is an aggressive champion .
Tips on how to Dominate with Master Yi
Play aggressive, early, go for kills, try to have with a stun/snare. This guide builds him towards having an early dominance, which you need to capitalize on. You start out as a fast, damage dealing dps/tank, Go for kills, assist allies on ganks,INITIATE, he will put out the most damage in your team if you play him right. He is best at last hitting champs with alpha and wuju but if you want to put out the most damage in one attack make sure your passive is charged to do a double strike. In team fight do NOT focus the tanks take out the squishy it will be easy. Afterward you can rip the tanks apart with your team having both buffs will benefit you even more. Play aggressive dont be a chicken with this build Master Yi can take a couple a hits with out crying. Dont be scared of initiating first with attack speeed and damage taking towers and enemies will be a walk in the park.
Will update as soon as I can or if theres changes to my build .
