Short build explanation

Youmuu's Ghostblade is very core on Master Yi in every build, the extremely high attack speed in combination with his ult and Berserker's Greaves and the early game burst thanks to armor penetration make it indispensable.
After that you would rush the Infinity Edge and Sword of the Divine combination, the 3 crits you get with the active work with your Alpha Strike and have increased damage thanks to Infinity Edge. You can get the items in any order, it can help a lot to rush Sword of the Divine for burst (you have to try it to believe). The Trinity Force right now has never been stronger and is absolutely awesome on Yi, you want to get Phage early to make chasing easier. The increased damage Sheen passive works crazily good with your Alpha Strike. The reason why I get this item in the late game and not earlier is because you need attack speed to make the upgrade from Sheen to Trinity Force viable: Every attack reduces the cooldown of Alpha Strike, the Sheen passive has a very short cooldown so that it is more efficient to use Alpha Strike more often.
Last Whisper is a must have item and can be purchased very early when opponents build armor. If you ever have gold to replace one item in your build you want to replace Sword of the Divine with Statikk Shiv, this will increase your crit chance so that the Sword of the Divine active becomes useless and you have generally higher damage.
Defensive items:
This build is very optional, Master Yi is an assassin but when he falls behind he will need to build defensive items. You can replace Sword of the Divine or Trinity Force with items like Spirit Visage, Randuin's Omen or Overlord's Bloodmail dependant of what kind of damage opponents deal the most.

(Runes: 6% lifesteal is enough to sustain in lane or jungle, I find it kind of neccessary for this item build. The armor penetration works well with Youmuu's Ghostblade. Why? Check this out. You can go attack damage Marks though. Seals and Glyphs are defensive as usual.)

Since this is an assassin build for Master Yi, this is not much about auto attacking and sustain. Check my auto attack bruiser Master Yi build out here.
