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 YI-build, ive played alot of games with Master Yi and i've mastered Master YI. After 300+ games with YI, I've come to this build. The best for YI.
You need to master this build, you need to know how to play YI, you need to get the feeling.
After that you will be owning, even if your team is not that good in 99% of the games you will end with a positive K/D-ratio.
Have fun with this guide
Pros / Cons
YI is a Squishy hero, but with this build U will be in the middle of it.
+ Fast attack speed
+ Life steal
- Stuns, get stunned alot its over. But with which hero it isnt?
HOW TO PLAY ?
This YI is different, you will not start jungle from the beginning. Starting jungle from start means:
- slow start ( slow levelling, getting almost no kills in begin)
- missing chance for First Blood ( or some more kills )
How to play, first get the items (stated above). Go to the golems ( close to the lizard buff ) do an alpha strike on them when they spawn and smite . You can use a HP-pot. Then go to the lane and stay their as long as possible. By killing the golems you start with LVL2 almost :).
Try to stay as long as possible in the lanes and try to get the first blood. Harass them. Look when your 7th strike is going to happen then use Alpha strike on an enemy hero. This way you deal alot more damage. When you see the possibility to gank, GANK EM. Use your Ghost if necessary. (Use smite on minions when you are in lane)
Dont forget to use your Meditate, if you get attacked use it. This way they almost dont hit you and your laner can hit them :).
Anyway try to stay as long as possible in lane, until you get 1150 Gold. Go back and buy the madreds razor and vampiric scepter. Now its time to head into the jungle and get the buffs + creeps. Start from Lizard buff to Golem buff, after you got the buffs try to gank ( you will be lvl 6 by now ) If a gank doesnt work, just go to their jungle and get their buffs :).
Now just try ganking or go help in lanes. When the buffs come back try to get them. Always try to get alot of creeps also. Because if you wont get the gold from killing enemies then get it from creeping :), this way u always will get gold and level. Be efficient!
PRACTICE! PRACTICE ! PRACTICE !
You need to know how to play this build, you need to be efficient and fast. Dont stay still, play active.
Know when to BACK, Know when to go in. KNOW MASTER YI.
All these stuff can be learned by practising.
Have fun with this build, ( THE BEST THERE IS! ) First try it a couple times, then you will be doing it allot better.
